  • AMG 5 Stars: "It's a warm, friendly album, particularly since Bob Dylan is singing in a previously unheard gentle croon — the sound of his voice is so different it may be disarming upon first listen, but it suits the songs."

White Hot Stamper

Bob Dylan
Desire

  (Item #: dylandesir_1709_1) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • Two amazing sides for this 2-Pack, each rating a Triple Plus (A+++) or very close to it, huge and solid with tons of weight
  • Both sides are incredibly clean, clear and lively with lots of space around all of the instruments
  • Desire spent five weeks at Number One, mostly on the strength of the powerful and provocative "Hurricane"
  • Allmusic raves: "...one of his most fascinating records of the '70s and '80s -- more intriguing, lyrically and musically, than most of his latter-day affairs."

  • 5 stars on Allmusic: "...it's an affecting, unbearably poignant record, not because it's a glimpse into his soul, but because the songs are remarkably clear-eyed and sentimental, lovely and melancholy at once."

Bob Dylan & The Band - Before The Flood

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: dylanbefor_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

One of the great Live Classic Rock albums of all time, now available in White Hot Stamper form! We recently undertook a massive shootout for this spirited double LP and three of the better sides from the whole shebang are on this here pressing. Sides one and two each earned our top grade of A+++, while side four clocked in at A++. Side three, as is often the case, was not quite up to the same standards.

Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: dylanhighw_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This 360 Label pressing has a SUPERB A+++ SIDE ONE backed with a strong A++ side two. We had a big stack of 360s and Red Labels with good stampers to compare, and this copy had a side one that could not be beat. It's got big time immediacy, tons of energy, loads of tubey magic and exceptional clarity. The bottom end is punchy with real weight and the soundfield is open, spacious and so transparent.

Bob Dylan - Another Side of Bob Dylan

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: dylananoth_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

We played a bunch of these recently and only a very small handful of sides had enough magic to be considered Hot Stampers. The typical pressing loses its steam in (at least) one of two ways: honky mids and veiled vocals. The copies with the honk can be nearly unlistenable when Dylan starts blowing his harmonica, and the copies with veiled vocals and no real immediacy bored us to tears.

This copy has the magic on side two. The sound is full-bodied, natural, and rich with excellent presence and real depth to the soundfield.

Bob Dylan - Another Side of Bob Dylan

Sundazed Mono Debunked

  (Item #: dylananoth_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: D

Another bad Sundazed record. Most of the Dylan catalog they did is just awful, regardless of what the reviewers at the time of their release may have written to the contrary.

Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde

Sundazed Mono Junk

  (Item #: dylanblond_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: D

Flat as a pancake and dead as a doornail, like most Sundazed records. Sundazed is clearly one of the worst record labels of all time.

Bob Dylan - Blonde On Blonde

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: dylanblond_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

AMAZING A+++ SOUND on the first three sides, giving you killer Master Tape Sound for every song except Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands! We just finished a huge Blonde on Blonde shootout and this copy murdered the competition on sides one, two and three, earning our top grade for each. The sound is SUPERB -- I don't think I've ever heard this album sound any better! It's rich, full-bodied, warm, natural and has the energy of live music in a way no other copy we played could compare to. The presence and immediacy are OFF THE CHARTS.

Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: dylanblood_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

For the first time ever, A+++ MASTER TAPE SOUND ON BOTH SIDES. We had to pair up two copies to do it, but the good sides on each were so exceptional, they were just begging to be put together. I’ve never heard this wonderful album sound quite this amazing.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: dylanblood_wtlf_1) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what you should be listening for when critically evaluating your copy (or ours) of the album.

Many copies have no bass, while other copies are bright, a combination which ruins the sound of the acoustic guitars that dominate the album. On the better Hot Stamper pressings the bass will be deep and well-defined and the tonal balance will be correct.

The copies that fared the best in our shootouts were rich, warm, tubey and full-bodied -- in other words, analog sounding.

Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan

Our Shootout Winner from 2013 in Mono

  (Item #: dylanbobdy_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

TWO AMAZING SIDES RATING AT OR NEAR A+++ for this the MONO pressing! It's beyond difficult to find copies of this album with good sound, but we managed to get a hold of a hot one here. This is a true solo album -- guitar, vocals and harmonica -- and it's a lot of fun to hear a young (20!) Dylan playing the way he might have played in the coffee shops and folk clubs of Greenwich Village.

Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: dylanbring_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

TWO INCREDIBLE SIDES on UNUSUALLY QUIET VINYL! This may very well be the HOTTEST copy of Bringing It All Back Home to EVER hit the site, rating A++ on side one and earning top A+++ honors on side two. We pulled together enough clean pressings recently for a big shootout and this copy was the overall winner. The sound is lively, transparent and rich on both sides with excellent immediacy throughout. You will have an incredibly hard time finding another copy of this album that sounds so good and plays this quietly!

Bob Dylan - Desire

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Two amazing Triple Plus (A+++) sides, huge and solid with tons of weight. Both sides are incredibly clean, clear and lively with lots of space around all of the instruments. Desire spent five weeks at Number One, mostly on the strength of the powerful and provocative "Hurricane."

Sundazed Mono Debunked

  (Item #: dylanhighw_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: D

A Hall of Shame Pressing and another Sundazed record debunked.

I don’t think mono works for this album, so we never carried it nor recommended it.

Bob Dylan - John Wesley Harding

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: dylanjohnw_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

SUPERB SOUND and UNUSUALLY QUIET VINYL on both sides -- I don't think we've ever had a copy this amazing! Both sides earned our Top Grade of A+++. This copy has the bass, fullness & vocal presence that are hard to come by for this album. The title track, Dear Landlord, I'll Be Your Baby Tonight, All Along the Watchtower and I Pity The Poor Immigrant are just some of the most memorable songs here.

Bob Dylan - Nashville Skyline

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: dylannashv_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

STUNNING MASTER TAPE SOUND ON SIDE ONE, BACKED WITH A TOP SHELF SIDE TWO! It ain’t easy to find Hot Stamper copies of this album, but when you play one like this it is worth all the trouble. When Johnny Cash starts singing, it is positively chilling. That's the Man In Black, folks, and the immediacy of this copy puts him right there in the room with you!

Bob Dylan - New Morning

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: dylannewmo_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Side one of this Columbia pressing is RIGHT ON THE MONEY! That's where the great song If Not For You is found, and on this copy it is SMOKIN'. There's tons of energy, real texture to the vocals, and more presence than we heard elsewhere. Check out that BIG bottom end! This side earned our top A+++ grade.

Side two is strong as well, earning a plus and a half -- A+ to A++, as we say. The sound is clean, clear and transparent, but not quite as lively or present. It's still better than many of the copies we played against it.

Bob Dylan - Planet Waves

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: dylanplane_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This White Hot Stamper copy of Planet Waves boasts not only great Bob Dylan sound, but some of the best sound for The Band that you'll ever hear! That's right, Dylan is backed by Messrs. Robertson, Danko, Helm, Manuel and Hudson on this album, and I don't know when we've ever heard such audiophile quality sound from that crew. It's a real treat to hear their signature styles without the cardboard-y, compressed quality we usually find on their albums.

Lots of great material on this album, not sure why it doesn't get more respect. On A Night Like This, Going Going Gone, Forever Young, You Angel You... these are wonderful, well-recorded songs.

Bob Dylan - Slow Train Coming

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: dylanslowt_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

We packaged together our very best A+++ side one with a different copy that boasted our best side two with the same top grade to give you this QUIET White Hot Stamper 2-pack! I doubt this is anyone's very favorite Dylan album, but it's sure a lot more enjoyable when you have sound like this. And if you want to hear what's missing on the typical pressing, flip either copy over to the non-WHS side to see what we're talking about.

The big hit here is Gotta Serve Somebody, and Mark Knopler of Dire Straits is featured throughout the album.

Bob Dylan - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

Our Mono Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: dylanfreew_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This is a 2-pack of two Mono pressings, each with a killer Triple Plus (A+++) side. The White Hot sides are amazingly spacious, full-bodied, natural and clear with great presence. We greatly prefer the best Mono pressings to the best stereo copies, but they are very hard to come by.

This is our favorite of the early Dylan albums for both music and sound! We're picking up both mono and stereo copies when we see them clean (which is rare) but the best mono copies truly take this music to a whole new level.

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This amazing Mono pressing is the first Triple Triple copy to ever hit the site!Both A+++ sides are incredibly rich and warm, with dynamics and smoothness to the harmonica you almost never hear. As impressive as the best stereo copies can be, the mono version is our preferred mix for the album.

A Sundazed Winner!

  (Item #: dylantimes_sundazed) 



Sonic Grade: B

Sundazed finally gets one REALLY right! The mono version here MOIDERS the competition. (It’s a mono recording with stereo echo added -- how tough can it be?) Considering Sundazed's dismal track record, I wouldn't have thought they could do anything right.

Here’s One to Wet Your Whistle

  (Item #: dylannashv_wtlf) 



Presenting today’s Home Audio Exercise. Play your copy of Nashville Skyline -- on speakers, no fair cheating on headphones! -- and see if you can answer this question. At the beginning of one of the songs on this album two sounds are heard, neither of which is produced by an instrument, but could be said to have been produced by a singer. What are these two mysterious sounds?

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: travetrave_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

MASTER TAPE SOUND ON SIDE ONE backed with an excellent side two, both on very quiet vinyl! It took us ages to put together enough clean copies to get this shootout going again. Many of the pressings we played suffered from too much compression and a phony hi-fi quality. We knew there had to be great copies out there somewhere, so we kept dropping the needle until we found a few good men. Here’s the best of them all -- it rates our top grade of A+++ on side one and A++ on side two. Drop the needle on Handle With Care to hear how wonderful this music can sound when it’s cut right!
