  1. The lacquer of City And Colour’s original vinyl release of Little Hell is possible cut direct from Jeff Lipton‘s digital mastering. It is however sounds extremely good and probably one of the better sounding records pressed by Rainbo Records.

    The SQ is crystal clear and wide open. The acoustic guitars sounded especially dazzling. The mid and highs are much better resolved though, so all those acoustic tracks without heavy bass such as The Grand Optimist, Northern Wind, O’Sister and Silver And Gold sound extremely good. When the bass is called for it is unfortunately somewhat rolled off, powerless and doesn’t quite keep up, such as Natural Disaster, Fragile Bird and Weightless. The only exception is probably Sorrowing Man where the bass is tight and punchy! A quiet pressing by Rainbo Records too which is extremely rare…
