Numbered Edition 180-gram LP Sourced from the Original Master Tapes

The Eighties weren't all bad. Here's proof. A five-star record that announced the arrival of a serious new talent and deviated from the slick artifice of the time, Marshall Crenshaw is the timeless sound of great pop, impeccable songwriting, and youthful enthusiasm. From the art-deco cover to a yearning rendition of "Soldier of Love" – first covered by the Beatles at a 1963 BBC Session and later turned into a surprise hit by Pearl Jam – Marshall Crenshaw's 1982 debut is a gleeful throwback to rock n' roll's soul, British Invasion, and rockabilly roots. Fans of Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, and Weezer will want this. Now!

Crenshaw's passion for rock's golden era is palpable on every track here, particularly the radio smash "Someday, Someway," breezy "The Usual Thing," and persuasive "There She Goes Again." Resemblances to Buddy Holly, Beach Boys, and the Beatles are by design. Delightfully out of time, Marshall Crenshaw is a tribute to the everlasting charm of carefree melodies, quirky hooks, simple bass lines, and jangling chords. This is an album that will get stuck in your head and stay there for days.

Remastered from the original master tapes, Crenshaw's defining moment now features sound that's as brilliant as the tunes. Songs benefit from the newly realized spaciousness and warmth. Crenshaw's subtly echoing vocals and lively guitar strumming naturally resonate, and instrumental touches such as the glockenspiel on "Cynical Girl" emerge as if the original sessions happened yesterday.



GAIN 2™ Ultra Analog™ System for Vinyl

GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ is a proprietary cutting system built and designed by legendary design genius Tim De Paravicini, with consultation from one of Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's founding fathers - Stan Ricker, an audio engineer responsible for many of MFSL's most heralded past releases.

The GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system is comprised of a Studer™ tape machine with customised reproduction electronics* and handcrafted cutting amps that drive an Ortofon cutting head on a restored Neumann VMS-70 lathe. (*It is worth noting that independent studies have confirmed that the GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system can unveil sonic information all the way up to 122kHz!)

First and foremost, Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs only utilise first generation original master recordings as source material for their releases. MFSL then play back master tapes at half speed enabling the GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system to fully extract the master's sonic information. The lacquers are then plated in a specialised process that protects transients in the musical signal. (Due to this process, there may be occasional pops or ticks inherent in initial play back, but as the disc is played more, a high quality stylus will actually polish the grooves and improve the sound). MFSL further ensure optimum sound quality by strictly limiting the number of pressings printed for each release. These limited editions, in addition to being collectors' items, ensure that the quality of the last pressing matches the quality of the first.
