Vinyl aficionados can rejoice because I have just discovered the best reissue label on the planet… Speakers Corner Records!
Based in Germany, Speaker Corner Records has just released Carly Simon’s seminal 1972 album No Secrets on 180 gram vinyl and the whole package is absolutely stellar. The album has been meticulously mastered and the sound is flawless in fact, I have never heard No Secrets sound better in any format.
The label also recreated all of the original album elements from the original 1972 release. The front and back cover as well as the 2 sided cardboard insert perfectly capture the feeling you would get if you purchased this album 48 years ago. This version of No Secrets also includes lyrics and comes with an audiophile inner sleeve. Even the actual Elektra Records album sticker has been faithfully recreated, making the whole vinyl experience the best it can possibly be.
No Secrets: classic Carly Simon
As for the album itself, No Secrets is a classic from start to finish and contains some of Carly’s biggest hits, “The Right Thing To Do” and “You’re So Vain” and most personal songs, “We Have No Secrets” and “It Was So Easy.” The album eventually achieved platinum status and topped the Billboard Album charts for over 5 weeks.
If you already own this album on vinyl do yourself a favor and upgrade to the Speaker Corner Records reissue of No Secrets because it is among the best vinyl releases I have ever seen or heard, period.
