Description

Offered for sale is a one-sided 45 RPM test pressing of side A1 of the unreleased 4 disc Clarity vinyl pressing of I Robot by the Alan Parsons Project, pressed by Classic Records.

About this copy:  This test pressing is of side A1 only, containing the tracks “I Robot” and “I Wouldn’t Want to Be Like You.”

The disc was issued in a plain white cover with a sticker indicating the catalog number.

Cover and the clear vinyl Clarity vinyl disc are M-.  The disc looks unplayed, but does have a few tics during the first minute or so of play.

Background: In 2007 or so, Classic Records released a high quality audiophile pressing of I Robot, pressed on black vinyl and cut at the standard 33 1/3 RPM.

They intended to release the album at 45 RPM, pressed on their new clear “Clarity” vinyl in the form of four single-sided discs but the company went out of business before they could do so.  While they never commercially released the title in that format, a few test pressings of the complete set exist.

This is a test pressing of the first disc only from that set, containing the first two tracks from the album.

It sounds terrific.
