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.

This is where it all began for the English-American rock band Foreigner. This is the self-titled debut studio album released in 1977 and spinning off a barrage of hit singles, including "Feels Like the First Time", "Cold as Ice" and "Long, Long Way from Home". It also features album tracks such as "Headknocker" and "Starrider", the latter of which features a rare lead vocal from lead guitarist and co-founder Mick Jones.

 

Album Overview

Blissful feelings arise at the mere mention of 70s arena rock. It gives listeners the permission to have fun, sing along to aircraft-hangar-size choruses, play air guitar solos, forget about any troubles, recall the experience of a first kiss, and quite simply, rock out. Few albums better instill these pleasures than Foreigner's 1977 self-titled debut album, a five-times platinum blockbuster chock full of salacious riffs, soaring vocals, edgy beats, and lyrics that practically demand to be shouted. And while the record has always boasted clean, immediate production, never before has it exploded with the dynamic intensity and rich transparency now made possible on Mo-Fi's dynamic 180 gram LP. This is what rock n' roll dreams are made of.

Spearheaded by guitar hero Mick Jones, fresh off success with Spooky Tooth, Foreigner rallied around a talented collective pulled from the U.S. and U.K. Joining up with former King Crimson instrumentalist Ian McDonald and drummer Dennis Elliott, as well as keyboardist Al Greenwood and bassist Ed Gagliardi, Jones completed the puzzle with the addition of extraordinary singer Lou Gramm, whose vocal timbre and limitless pipes remain one of the most instantly identifiable combinations in music. Before long, two eternal radio classics – "Feels Like the First Time" and "Cold As Ice," composed on a miniature piano and inspired by Hollywood star Joan Crawford – were in the bag. Eight more tunes, each as solid as those that came before, followed, andForeigner quickly became an overnight rock sensation.

In contrast to much of the era's angrier fare and crudely produced music, Foreigner stood out by way of its clean, muscular, professional production. Still, Mobile Fidelity believed that underneath the surfaces, an even fresher, bigger-sounding record loomed. Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, MoFi's 180g LP presents the sextet's roof-raising anthems and scintillating blend of guitars, synths, and Gramm's soulful vocals across a wider, deeper soundstage than ever before imagined. Instrumental separation, tonal balance, and imaging are absolutely superb. Better still, the songs come across with an assertive liveliness that adds to their enjoyment, structure, and melodic character. The accessory flutes, saxophones, and synthesizer solos have never sounded so enmeshed within the overall sonic fabric.

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 artifacts.

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.
