Offered for sale is a still sealed copy of the limited edition, half speed mastered Mobile Fidelity pressing of Miles Davis’ 1961 LP, Someday My Prince Will Come.
About this copy: This copy is still sealed in it’s original perforated loose bag and has never been opened or played. The wrap has no tears and the cover has no dents or holes. It’s a beautiful copy of an album that’s quite hard to find today.
Background: This 1961 LP featured Davis, pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers, and alternating drummers Jimmy Cobb and Philly Jo Jones. The saxophonist was Hank Mobley on all but two tracks. John Coltrane returns for the title track and “Teo.” Despite good reviews, original copies of the album are somewhat scarce, as is this pressing by Mobile Fidelity.
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. 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 some of their titles were limited to 5000 numbered copies.
