"Pete Townshend/Ronnie Lane, Rough Mix"

Classic Original Master 1st Generation 180 Gram Pressing, "Out of Print, Last Copies" Pete Townshend & Ronnie Lane - ROUGH MIX - This Limited 1st Edition out of print 1st Generation Audiophile LP (from the Original Session Tapes) was mastered by Classic. Classic Records has proven to be an Audiophile Company second to none in the new millennium. But Classic Records, unlike other top Audiophile Companies, does not place Limited Edition numbers on their LP jackets. 2 years ago, Classic Records changed their vinyl weight from 180 gram to 200 gram. Mymusicfix knows no expert that has been able to decipher a true difference in quality with this 20 gram weight increase. What this change did for Collectors of the finest vinyl pressings was establish a First Edition element to Classic Records Audiophile pressings. All Classic Records 180 Gram pressings are now Out of Print and Very Limited Edition Collector's First Edition Pressings. These First Editions have become some of the rarest pressings in the Audiophile Collector's Market. Just try to find them at any Audiophile Retailer. You might still find some limited inventory of MFSL or DCC pressings but I will bet my bottom dollar that you won't be able to find any of these 180 gram Classic Records First Editions. They are simply gone from the market and Mymusicfix has seen these First Editions sell for over $300. In the long term, First Editions will be what Collectors seek. This 180 Gram pressing was tremendously limited before Classic Records shifted their vinyl weight to 200 Grams. When you take that into consideration, what will this First Edition Audiophile Pressing be worth in the years ahead? It could be one of the most collectible pressings ever in this 180 Gram First Edition. How rare and valuable are each one of these 180gram sets now still Factory Sealed? Priceless! ROUGH MIX, Pete Townshend's 1977 collaboration with former Small Faces songwriter and bass player Ronnie Lane combines the loose rollicking folk-rock of Lane's former band, Slim Chance, with touches of country, folk, and New Orleans rock and roll along with Townshend's own trademark style. Lane's tunes, especially the beautiful ANNIE possess an understated charm, while Townshend with songs such as MISUNDERSTOOD, THE Meher Baba-inspired KEEP ME TURNING, and the strange love song MY BABY GIVES IT away, delivers some of the best material of his solo career. Guests on this recording include Eric Clapton, John Entwistle and Charlie Watts.
