But however it was done it produced a sound quality that was above and beyond for nuance. Most albums were about $10 to $15 back in the late 70's. Half speeds were twice that. The ones that are will say so somewhere on the cover, but check to make sure the album inside isn't a replacement.

I had no idea about that and am now really fucking intriqued to hear that. My mother has a copy of Magical Mystery Tour and I have Rumors so I'll be sure to check if its the half-speed mastered series.
Check my band out:
