About this copy: The copy offered for sale has a M- record and cover.  The posterboard stiffener is included.  This copy is numbered 1206 from an edition of unknown quantity.

A nice copy of a great electric blues album.

Background:  Cold Snap is classic electric blues by Albert Collins, consisting of both instrumentals and vocal tracks.  It’s a great recording, and this half speed mastered pressing by Mobile Fidelity sounds terrific.

Every title ever issued by Mobile Fidelity is collectible in its own right; their pressings from 1978 through 1989 were pressed in Japan by JVC on their proprietary Super Vinyl, an exceptionally resilient, dead-quiet vinyl compound, with later issues pressed in the U.S. by RTI.

These records were mastered at half speed; both the tape and the cutting lathe were run at half the normal speed, allowing the cutting head to cut a more accurate groove in the acetate.  The finished product featured dead-quiet vinyl, with improved dynamics, better imaging, and tighter bass.  By their very nature, all of Mobile Fidelity’s titles were limited-edition pressings, and Cold Snap was limited to an unknown quantity of numbered copies.
