Announcing the very first Groove Note Best Of One Step LP — True Analogue: The Best of Groove Note Records (25th Anniversary Edition). The program is similar to Groove Note's existing True Audiophile series of SACDs but features more tracks from the recent releases by Vanessa Fernandez and Jacintha. The program contains 12 tracks spread over 4 x 45 rpm sides and is plated One Step by RTI.
All 12 tracks are cut from the original 30 ips analogue master tapes by Bernie Grundman, who assembled all the separate tracks from the different masters before cutting. Groove Note did not use an intermediate production dub as the master as is the usual practice when releasing a "Best Of" compilation album.
This album was cut by Bernie Grundman using a recently installed and upgraded diamond cutting tool which has resulted in a lower noise floor.
The low end on the Groove Note is as good as I've heard on vinyl. It's taut, detailed and explosive. You feel the explosive of the stick hitting the toms and snare drums. Double bass plucks are rendered with new clarity and SNAP! The vinyl used here is ultraquiet and vocals—whew let's take Jacintha singing the 'Look of Love'—are spellbinding. The low level resolution and the breathiness of her singing is laid out in its full glory! And as a result, I've ordered one full Jacintha and Vanessa Fernandez one-step for the ultimate in sound quality!
