I just got the new Suede LP and it is recorded at 45rpm and it sounds absolutely brilliant!  Well it did once I realised it was a bit slow at 33rpm.  Just shows how wrong Elvis Costello was to groove cram on his LPs from Get Happy!! onwards.

What I'd really love for my birthday...

Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, and pressed on two 45RPM LPs to replicate the very first promotional pressing in the UK, the 1980 LP has never sounded better on any format. Rather than cram nearly 50 minutes of music and 20 songs onto a single record, Mobile Fidelity has gone the extra mile and back to the album's UK roots with two 45RPM discs. For the first time, listeners can home in on the record's signature sound that relates to the decision to record the vocals in a studio's glass strings room. In addition, the dimensions and images associated with Steve Nieve's penetrating organ, Pete Thomas' punchy drumming, and Costello's bounding vocals know no limits. The music simply leaps off the proverbial page, the uptempo rhythms jumping and nimble bass lines kickin.

Exciting just reading about it!
