The line snaked down the block outside of Music Merchant in Westwood, NJ the morning of Record Store Day April 20th 2013. It was 7:30 AM well before I got there, you can be sure. Others told me about the scene, including the store's owner.

Frank Sinatra recorded this album for Capitol in the summer of 1960—the same year he left the label and with a few hundred thousand dollars of his own money started Reprise Records. You can be sure plans for the new label were well underway during the production of this thirty three minutes and change long album.

So how was the show? Last year's show was pretty awful. This year's show was very good for many reasons. Just look at the smile on the face of Acoustic Sounds' Chad Kassem.

It was a hectic show for me. I had agreed to do two events each Friday and Saturday in conjunction with Colleen Murphy's Classic Album Sundays in a room featuring a Spiral Groove SG 1.1 turntable and Centroid arm, VTL Reference electronics including a pair of big Siegfried mono blocks and a pair of Wilson Audio Specialties MAXX 3 loudspeakers.

Best sound at the show? It wasn't close and it wasn't fair. The best sound was, without a doubt, in the MBL room where MBL importer Jeremy Bryan demonstrated why he's among the best and most meticulous/fanatical set-up guys in the business.

Does this look like a $5995 phono preamplifier? It looks far more costly to me. Canadian manufacturer Coincident Technology sells this new two-box tube-based phono preamp direct to consumers for $5995.

This modestly sized, unassuming looking little jewel was in use in the Audio Arts room, fed by a Jan Aalerts cartridge mounted in the Simon Yorke S-10.
