Description

Now on 33 1/3 As Originally Recorded with All 12 Tracks Included!

A longtime audiophile demonstration disc, Hugh Masekela’s heralded 1994 live album Hope will show off your system’s dynamic range as well as any record ever released. Recorded in the Summer of 1993 at Washington D.C.’s Blues Alley with a fiery seven-piece group, Hope finds the music legend revisiting his rich history with a touchstone set which covers material reaching over five different decades and several countries and composers. The songs are diverse, passionate and transcendent, and the sound is incredible!

Unlike a prior 45 RPM version that included just seven songs, this Analogue Productions’ 2 x 200g 33 1/3 RPM reissue contains the full program as originally recorded with all 12 tracks included. The album was mastered from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio, plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings and comes complete with Stoughton Printing tip-on old-style heavyweight gatefold jacket packaging. Plus, as an added bonus, AP has included a special insert – featuring an exclusive interview with Grammy/Emmy Award-winning engineer David Hewitt, who recorded the album.

“Hugh’s record is right up near the top for a lot of reasons,” Hewitt says. “We used stuff from our stash of mics as opposed to what you’d find typically at a jazz club. We actually had control via the record label and producers, so we could take our time. We had the ability to mic the room for ambient sound…you’ve got people that actually know and appreciate the music and respond accordingly. What you’ve got there is all the right stuff at the right time and the right people, and then something magical happens.”

“…Hope is one of those intensely visceral, large as life, and immediately present recordings that will make pretty much any system sound at least very good, and will cause better ones to raise goose bumps.” – Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound
