.: [VINYL] Led Zeppelin 45rpm Box Set

剛剛不小心發現這款重裝備:

The Classic Records Led Zeppelin 45 rpm Box Set consists of 44 single sided 12" records housed in a special Classic Records Road Case. The titles include Led Zeppelin I, II , III, IV, Houses of the Holy, Physical Graffiti, Presence, In Through the Out Door, and Coda with each spread out over either four or eight sides depending on whether the original LP was a single or double. These 45 rpm sides were cut at the same time as the 33 rpm discs and as such DO NOT represent a remastering that is different from the 33 rpm LP's approved by the Band. Further, there is no additional artwork or extra recorded material of any kind. Each title has an art jacket that is the same as used on the 33 rpm releases with the additional 45's in white jackets. Original label art by title is the same as used on the 33 rpm releases as well. All records are pressed on Classic's proprietary 200g Super Vinyl Profile for maximum playback fidelity. Since the mastering is exactly the same as the 33 rpms and the jackets and label art are the same authentic reproductions, why would anyone need the same material on 45 rpm discs? The answer is simple - you should be more kind to your cartridge by letting it play 45 rpm discs and reveal all the nuances that are nearly impossible to retrieve from a 33 rpm disc. The information in the grooves of these 45 rpms is EXACTLY the same as in their 33 rpm counterparts. To prove it is very easy - think of the lathe as it is cutting a lacquer, the cutter head doesn't know what speed the platter is spinning as the cutter blindly moves up and down back and forth carving the grooves. The difference is that at 45 rpm the same signal is imprinted over a longer distance and hence the "stretched" out groove is easier for a cartridge to traverse which allows the cartridge to give a better read on what is carved. The sonic difference can be quite remarkable, especially if the music is complex as with Classical music or dense as is often the case with Rock. Rest assured that you have never heard Stairway to Heaven until you've heard it at 45 rpm! This is as close to the master tape as we are able to get with an LP and as such is extremely special although requires you to change sides more often than with a 33 rpm disc. If you are a Led Zeppelin nut (you know who you are) then this set is essential - if not then go listen to some Barry Manilow!

這樣的東西要賣多少錢?
官方建議售價是$699.99 USD

我很好奇
如果不是為了收藏
會有多少人基於聆聽的需求而衝這樣的東西
齊柏林飛船的歌迷中 現在還有多少人會狂熱到那種程度呢?
不過看CR的說明文字
才知道預定五月發行的這一批貨 可是為了應付之前向隅者的需求才又再版上市
看來我的懷疑還真是井蛙之見
有錢人想的果然和我不一樣...@@"

這個東西光看就很爽.
我只買過4 cd特別版.

是啊
的確是光看就很爽
我現在家裡幾千張CD、LP幾乎也都只是擺著看爽
不過也常常會看得很煩...Orz

no no
not有錢人想的果然和我不一樣
it's "collectable" though = investment, dork. ^^
I'll buy it, enough said.

看到這個價格一點都不意外,因為(一般而言,也有少數例外)LP族本來就偏向音響高價族,願意蒐購珍品的意願比較高。根據小妹觀察,Classic LP在音響雜誌獲得的評價都很不錯(部分item甚至被選為史上最發燒LP之一),而通常發售一兩年內也就絕版了。「漂亮」,「稀有性」和「重新轉錄品質」應該促成這套LP問世的主要原因。令人頭痛的,其實並不是價格,問題是:要擺在哪裡?而且每次要聽的時候,拿進拿出,真的有點不方便耶!

To I:

"dork"?
是在罵我呆子嗎?@_@a
希望我沒誤解你的語意

anyway...
我當然知道有人把這當成收藏品 甚至懷抱某種程度的投資心態
所以原文中才會說:

我很好奇 如果不是為了收藏
會有多少人基於聆聽的需求而衝這樣的東西

我個人向來認為
唱片當然具有收藏價值
不過若完全只是收藏而不讓它開聲
會讓我覺得像是扼殺了一個人最根本、傑出的天賦
即使只是因為精美漂亮而將它納入收藏
那至少也該三不五時把它拿出來賞玩一番
否則我還真會有些自責:p

當然 這只是我個人的看法
每個人都有自己的態度與原則
自己的錢 自己的時間
自己開心就好:)

To 小威:

對呀...
不只是我 其他許多人似乎也都覺得
這種套裝的東西
真的會因為不便收納、取用而大大減少聆聽的機率
往往最後就淪為擺飾
至於要擺在哪裡 我倒是有個想法:
上頭擺張軟墊 當成聽音樂時的"皇帝位"
或許能夠提高爽度也不一定:p

說正經的
依我看來
其實CR的片子倒也不是張張好銷
早年CR剛開始復刻大業之時
一度也曾推出首壓限量版─2000張、編號為記
印象中 價格似乎沒有比較高
因此我自己當年也曾買過幾張嚐鮮
但是幾年過後 竟然還沒銷完
我依舊可以在唱片行裡看見它們的蹤跡
真要當二手品脫手 我其實沒信心可以賣出好價錢

所以若是看重收藏性 還是得慎挑嚴選
比如像這款Led Zeppelin
或者 同樣是經典搖滾樂團
MSFL在多年之前也曾重裝發行過一套The Beatles的作品全輯(?)
如今價格也是翻了好幾翻:

http://www.popsike.com/php/detaildata.php?itemnr=2566338501
可惜較諸古典、爵士品項
大體而言 搖滾、流行類在收藏市場上似乎還是比較弱勢的
而且 或許我該說"幸好"
這似乎也是不會改變的宿命:p

話說回來
看看CR的產品 再對比近年台、港兩地零星出現的幾款發行(復刻或舊專輯首度發行唱片)
實在讓我覺得很悶
光是看那封套的印刷品質我就軟掉了...Orz
但其中交工樂隊的"我等就來唱山歌"與"菊花夜行軍"倒真是內外皆美的精品
在此不能不順手一推

說遠了...

tom:
其實這幾個ogisan團因為聽眾多為年少輕狂過的70s'所以,
coco不是問題. 而且有些東西類比的味道硬就是比數位來的好些.
led 的東西也真值得收, 那天重聽jimmy handrix 覺得
真的很神.


現在這套東西的拍賣價超過新台幣十萬元以上了!!

蝦密?!@_@"

你只會怨嘆當年沒有買幾套起來一套兩萬多 現在一套可以淨賺十萬!!(大家會搶著要唷)

投資是需要眼光的…*嘆*
