In association with Sonic Past Music, "Sierra High Fidelity" is proud to announce the pre-release of, pre-ordering for the album "RANDY MEISNER - TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT" produced by Joey Stec of Sonic Past Music and Randy Meisner.
As a founding member of "The Eagles," inducted into the "Rock & Roll Hall of Fame" in 1998, "Randy Meisner - Take It To The Limit" is a vinyl only album from Randy's post Eagles days.
Though released in less than audiophile quality on CD in the USA, Japan and England, this vinyl release marks the first time these original analog master recordings from the original analog 2 track tapes have been issued on vinyl anywhere in the world. Recorded after leaving "The Eagles" and releasing three solo albums, one on Asylum Records and two on CBS/Sony in the early 80s, these songs could only be heard on various CD quality releases over the last few decades exclusively through Joey Stec's Sonic Past Music label. But only now can their full audiophile sound quality be heard on this Sierra High Fidelity/Sonic Past Music "UHD" vinyl release. The best of the these audiophile masters were selected for this one of a kind vinyl release including original Meisner songs plus such 'Eagles' standard as "Try and Love Again", their first hit, "Take It Easy" and Meisner's classic hit song and the album's title song, "Take It To The Limit".
The recordings have been sourced from the original 2 track, 15ips audiophile analog tape (Scotch 226) and Direct Metal Disc Mastered (DMM) at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London, England.
The custom polished stampers for vinyl pressing will then be struck directly from the DMM copper plates and then be mounted on special die molds made of Cr-Ni steel to press each record of 180 grams of special PVC compound of highly polymerized synthetic resin containing high vinyl acetate content, free of "toluene," tin or lead, especially for "Sierra High Fidelity".
"MAXIMUM HIGH DEFINITION DIRECT COPPER 2 VINYL (MHD DC2V)"
Each 180 gram vinyl disc will inspected and then inserted in a high density poly sleeve, placed inside a full color on silver metallic foil, record jacket.
As with "Sierra High Fidelity" releases, the original analog master tapes have also been archived to DSD 256 (Quad) digital format by means of Merging Technologies' Pyramix Hapi AD/DA Converter for future high resolution downloads.
The album will be released in LATE SUMMER 2017.
