Product Description

Your Vinyl Is Precious.....
So Keep It Clean Mate!

Time to get out that record collection? Make sure you get all the performance you want with the best in record care products. We don't sell 'snake-oil' products! Rather everything is tried and tested - and used by us! The range is limited, but it all works. We even have products that can restore really dirty records (not scratches) to their original performance.

One of the great new wave/early MTV records, She's So Unusual is a giddy mix of self-confidence, effervescent popcraft, unabashed sentimentality, subversiveness, and clever humour. In short, it's a multifaceted portrait of a multifaceted talent, an artist that's far more clever than her thin, deliberately girly voice would indicate. - Stephen Erlewine All Music

Album Overview

Forget, for a moment, about the gypsy clothes, raspberry-pink hair, costume jewellery, and hyperactive behavior. No female artist's debut better epitomised MTV's vivid heyday and the smart intersection of self-reliant female politics, savvy hooks, and vibrant imagery than Cyndi Lauper's She's So Unusual. Long before Lady Gaga, and before Madonna embraced any traits resembling punk, the New York native ushered in a new wave of commercial pop while flaunting an exuberant confidence that, overnight, influenced a generation to dye their hair and embrace life with newfound vibrancy. Girls, indeed, just wanted to have fun.

Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's internationally acclaimed mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Label LP rescues the music from long-standing harshness and disadvantageous brittleness. Back on vinyl for the first time in decades, the multi-platinum 1984 blockbuster sounds completely anew, possessing crisper beats, a fleshed-out midrange, no artificial ceilings, and a clear alleyway to Lauper's girlish voice. Finally, the sonics possess the wide spectrum of colours that flavour the songs.

Helmed by the anthem "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," She's So Unusual transformed pop culture by way of Lauper's charismatic personality, whimsical attitude, lively performances, unique timbre, witty humour, and unabated passion. Throughout, she's a whirlwind of emotion and cyclone of spirit, tackling insouciant party tracks with the same verve she sings arresting ballads. And while for most it would be a deterrent, Lauper sculpts her chirpy, bop-friendly voice to her advantage, underscoring each song's combination of sentimentality and seditiousness.

"With a voice that combined the cartoon soul of Little Eva and the wink-wink naughtiness of Betty Boop, Lauper may have backed away from the depth or urgency of the writers whose work she mainstreamed, but her transformation of their power into sheer pop was ultimately subversive – giggling all the way, she incited legions of mall rats into orange-hair rebellion and a measure of self-assertion," wrote Paul Evans for The New Rolling Stone Album Guide, hinting at the record's normally unseen depth.

Whether viewed as a subversive new-wave crossover statement or simply as a celebratory declaration of individualism (or, both), She's So Unusual is an 80s landmark and influential harbinger of the role women would play in both rock and pop.

Mobile Fidelity Technologies

Audio Trends has sold Mobile Fidelity records since 1980 and the first album was of course Pink Floyds Dark Side Of The Moon which sold like hot cakes! Why have these records been so sort after? Mobile Fidelity believes that mastering systems should be neutral and transparent. The essential idea is to unveil all the detailed musical information on the original master recording without adding deterioration, colouration or other sonic artefacts.

It is worth noting that Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab stands out as one of few record labels that independently invests in research and development of audio technology. With proprietary innovations such as GAIN 2™, general music enthusiasts and audiophiles alike have reaped the benefit of a higher consumer audio standard without investing in costly new hardware. Mobile Fidelity is pleased to work with a variety of engineering legends and companies including Tim de Paravicini, Ed Meitner, Pass Labs, Lipinski Sound and Sony Electronics. These joint efforts to seek out the ultimate audio experience, has resulted in significant advances for the technology of music reproduction.
