STS Digital Madeline Bell, 'Blessed With Your Heart' tape (STS.T6111144)

STS Digital Madeline Bell, 'Blessed With Your Heart' Tape (STS.T6111144)

Madeline Bell, 'Blessed With Your Heart', beautifully sung classics on tape, copied from the Master.

STS reel to reel (R2R) tapes are transferred directly from the Master Tape.  

Master Tape copies available in three options:

Highest studio quality 2 track at 38cm/sec (15" per sec.), on one 10.5" reel. These are transferred at the original Master tape speed and offer the original 'studio sound' as the musicians and engineers heard it. Held in stock. 

High studio quality 2 track 'half speed' at 19cm/sec (7 1/2" per sec.), on one 7" reel. Very similar to the highest speed, loosing a little micro-detail and dynamics. Ideal way to experiance Master Tape quality of tape machines not offering 15" per sec. speed, like most Revox A77 and B77 machines. Held in stock. 

To special order: 4 track tapes at 19cm/sec (7 1/2" per sec.) and 38cm/sec (15" per sec.). These are produced to order, check for prices.

All tapes IEC biased and without Dolby noise suppression, to be as close to the original recording as possible.  IEC biased tapes are OK to play on other biased machines.



Madeline Bell, 'Blessed With Your Heart'

Madeline Bell, an amazing soul singer who deserve but never achieved superstar status. She has backed 'everybody', from the Dave Clark Five, through to Elton John and Giorgio Moroder, but has seldom recorded herself.

Recorded direct from the Master Tape, it shows off Madeline's talents with an interstingly eclectic mix of songs and dazzles from the start.

Ken Kessler in his review of this album (gaining 'Album of the Month' spot in Hi-Fi News and Record Review magazine, Feb. 2016) said - 'This one for audiophile label STS, adds spectacular sound quality to stellar performances' - and we think he is on the button.

The real star of the show on this record is of course Bell’s vocal talent, but in this format, recorded without Dolby or other wizardry being added really allows her to shine.

Highly Recommended.
