Pat Benatar – Let’s Stay Together (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on April 16th, 2015



Side A

New 2015 Re-Rip!
Remastered using the Ortofon OM Super 30 stylus!

This is one of those singles that I originally ripped way back in December, 2010. Back then I was using ClickRepair and the Ortofon OM 20 stylus. The result was a good rip but not as good as it could be. Now in 2015 I have stopped using ClickRepair started manually removing clicks and updated my stylus to the Ortofon OM Super 30. I also upgraded the tube in my Bellari phono pre-amp to the Tung-Sol 12AX7ECC803-S Gold Electron tube resulting in a much higher quality transfer. Enjoy!

“Let’s Stay Together” was the third single lifted from Pat Benatar’s eighth studio album “Wide Awake In Dreamland”. The single but failed to reach the chart status of the previous singles and failed to chart in the US. “Wide Awake In Dreamland” was Benatar’s last rock-oriented album of the 1980s, before she would go on to try a blues-based sound.

    I’ve enjoyed Pat Benatar so far, until this track and it is by her previous standards, disappointing.

    Regardless of that, thanks for the rip Paul. 🙂
