‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ getting One-Step Mobile Fidelity treatment

News / Preorders / January 24, 2018

Simon and Garfunkel’s famed full length, Bridge Over Troubled Water, is getting reissued by Mobile Fidelity with their One-Step production process. Paul Rigby at The Audiophile Man detailed this process in an article, writing: “Instead of utilising the industry-standard three-step lacquer process, Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab’s new UltraDisc One-Step (UD1S) uses only one step, bypassing two processes of generational loss.” The entire article is quite an interesting deep-dive into the topic and comes recommended.

The music is sourced from the original master tapes and the records are cut at 45 RPM.

With this process comes a much-increased price-tag though, as it’s marked at $100 for the 180-gram, 2xLP set. In regard to packaging, they list an “Opulent box and special foil-stamped jackets.” It’s limited to 7,500 copies.

Amazon, which actually has it at $125, lists a release date of May 4.
