Heart - Dog and Butterfly

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: heartdogan_2011) 



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

White Hot Stamper sound on side one, which means you get a Straight On that really ROCKS! Like the best copies of Dreamboat Annie and Little Queen, this is classic '70s ANALOG at its best. The sound is RICH and WARM without sacrificing clarity and punch. This very copy really made the case for just how good the album can sound, with wonderful grungy texture to the guitars and a big fat snare keeping the beat. (Heart in the old days had a great band behind them. When they left so did much of the reason to play Heart's records.)

Listen for the Fat Snare on Straight On

  (Item #: heartdogan_wtlf_2016) 



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.

Take five copies of the album, clean them well and then cue up Straight On. Now listen for how fat and solid the snare sounds. At least three will have a snare that doesn't have the heft of the real thing. At most one will show you what it should really sound like.

Of course the copy with the right snare sound may have other problems, most assuredly does have other problems, which is why you need about ten to fifteen copies to really do a proper shootout.

Heart - Dreamboat Annie

Nautilus Hot Stamper

  (Item #: heartdream_2009) 



This is a Minty looking Nautilus Half-Speed Mastered LP with SURPRISINGLY GOOD SOUND on side two. I think I finally figured out why people like these half-speed mastered records so much. If you get one like this, it's great! The mids and highs are transparent, sweet, open, and tonally correct. There's none of that MOFI 10k top end boost here! Listen critically to the vocals -- there's almost no phony hi-fi-ish quality to the midrange, the kind you hear on so many half-speed mastered records.

Flip the record over to side one and there they are, plain as day: audiophle BS vocals. That makes this a Hot Stamper on side two and a pretty much run-of-the-mill stamper for side one.

Heart - Dreamboat Annie

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: heartdream_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame and another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

MASTER TAPE SOUND and QUIET VINYL on BOTH SIDES! If you're an audiophile who loves classic rock, you just haven't lived until you've heard Magic Man and Crazy On You on a Hot Stamper pressing, and they don't get ANY hotter than this copy! We play dozens upon dozens of these every year, and based on that experience this Hot Stamper will be virtually unbeatable for EITHER side.

Heart - Dreamboat Annie

What to Listen For

  (Item #: heartdream_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of Dreamboat Annie.

On the best copies the music just JUMPS out of the speakers. There is so much more LIFE to this recording than I ever thought possible, and only the best pressings let that energy come through. In a nutshell those are the ones that earn the name Hot Stamper.

Heart - Little Queen

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: heartlittl_depth) 



Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series with advice on what to listen for as you critically evaluate your copy of Little Queen.

One of the little tricks I used toward the end of my marathon Little Queen tweaking session from a few years back (which lasted more than six hours one Saturday evening, leaving me euphoric but exhausted) was to listen to the ending of Barracuda.

Heart - Little Queen

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: heartlittl_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame and another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

This is a Classic Rock Demo Disc to beat practically anything you could throw at it. Love Alive and Barracuda on this copy will deliver the full Rock and Roll Power of your system. If you've got The Big Sound, this is the record that will truly show it off.

Even though our graphic scale only goes to three pluses, you'll know the Four Plus sound on this side one the moment you hear it.

Heart - Little Queen

CBS Half-Speed Debunked

  (Item #: heartlittl_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: D

A Hall of Shame pressing.

No slam, no real weight and no deep deep bass, just that 30-plus-cycles stuff and barely any of that, mostly 40 and up if you're lucky, and BLUBBERY. Another Half-Speed Mastered Audiophile Pressing Debunked.

Our good customer Roger wrote to tell me how much better he liked our $100 Hot Stamper of Little Queen compared to his CBS Mastersound Half-Speed Mastered LP. As you can see from our old commentary I used to actually think the ...

Whomp Factor on Little Queen

Testing Tips You Can Try at Home

  (Item #: heartlittl_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with specific advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of the album.

Heart's Little Queen has long been a favorite Test Disc. It works especially well as a test for something we here at Better Records like to call Whomp Factor -- the energy found at the low end of the frequency spectrum. Some call it slam, we prefer whomp.
