Description

Offered for sale is a copy of the limited edition, half speed mastered pressing of Barbra Streisand’s Greatest Hits, Volume 2, released in 1980 by Columbia Records.

About this copy: The copy offered for sale has a VG++ cover, with just a slight amount of wear on one corner, along with a small dent.  The record is M-, and looks to have only been played a couple of times.  There is a very slight discolored spot on one label where a price tag has been removed.

Background: This particular pressing of Greatest Hits, Volume 2 was part of Columbia Records’ short-lived (1980-1983) audiophile series, in which they released a number of then-new and vintage titles in high-quality, half speed mastered editions in order to compete with Mobile Fidelity and Nautilus.  These records were mastered with both the tape deck and the cutting lathe running at half speed, which produces deeper bass and better imaging than standard pressings.  In addition, these records, which sold for a substantial premium over the regular pressings of the album, were pressed on high quality virgin vinyl.  Mobile Fidelity’s audiophile pressings are better known than those from Columbia, but Columbia’s half speed mastered pressings are, for the most part, exceptionally good ones, and this album is no exception.
