It's a Vinyl World, After All DVD Ships!!!!

After seven months of production and intensive post-production, It's a Vinyl World, After All, Michael Fremer's 3 hour Guide to Record Production, Storage, Handling, Cleaning and Collecting has shipped from the duplication facility. It is available for purchase at online sellers including Music Direct, Elusive Disc Acoustic Sounds and LPgear among others.

This 3 hour DVD shot in high definition and formatted for 16x9 televisions includes factory tours of both the RTI record pressing plant in California, and Pallas in Diepolz, Germany, two of the world's best.

You'll see lacquers plated and prepared for the press and records pressed in close up detail at both plants.

The 3 hour DVD also covers record cleaning, handling and storage as well as record collecting.

A 20 minute segment showing a Blue Note reissue being mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman at the AcousTech mastering facility at RTI is an extra bonus.

In addition to the video, which is both informative and entertaining, the PDF files on the DVD-ROM section, which you access by putting the disc in your computer, contains dozens of pages of additional information on record collecting, record cleaning fluid chemistry and Audio Engineering Society White Papers that would cost you more to download from the AES site than the cost of the DVD itself.

"It's A Vinyl World, After All" has received rave reviews from both consumers and audio writers alike around the world. It can be purchased at:
