Bob Dylan - The Times They Are A-Changin'

Our Shootout Winner from 2016 in Mono

  (Item #: dylantimes_2016) 



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.

Dean Martin - Dream With Dean

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: martidream_2012) 



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

This side one gets it JUST RIGHT. My notes read, "WOW! Master Tape Sound! So clear and unprocessed. Right amount of tubey magic. Dynamic and present like no other!" -- hopefully that gives you a taste of just how much we loved the sound here. Side two is nearly as good but doesn't have quite as much presence.

Dean Martin - Dream With Dean

Skip the Mono

  (Item #: martidream_mono) 



Sonic Grade: F

A great sounding record in stereo, potentially anyway, but in MONO the bad sound puts it firmly in our Hall of Shame.

Stick with stereo; the monos aren't worth anybody's time (scratch that: any audiophile's time). In mono Deano sounds hard and honky, in stereo rich and warm. In our experience this is not unusual, which is why so few mono records make it to our site.

Dean Martin - Dream With Dean

Watch Out for Hard and Honky Vocals

  (Item #: martidream_wtlf) 



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.

Dream with Dean is great for finding any traces of "honk" in your midrange. Getting Deano's baritone to sound tubey and rich, to get the sound that Bing Crosby could get just by opening his mouth, is not all that easy on some systems, mine included. Correctly set VTA is critical in this regard, but pretty much everything must be working at its best for Dean to sound as intimate and natural as we know he can on the best pressings.

Dean Martin
This Time I'm Swingin'

  (Item #: martithist_1901_1904) 

Our Price: $149.99
Sale Price: $119.00 (You save $30.99 / 21%)


  • An outstanding copy that lets this music swing the way it's supposed to - solid Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it throughout
  • Classic Capitol big, full-bodied, Tubey Magical sound -- Deano's vocals are present and natural in the best tradition of rat-mate Frank Sinatra in the early '60s
  • With Nelson Riddle arranging, you can be sure the album has plenty of swing all right -- and the brass sounds amazing here
  • 4 1/2 stars: "...an easy swinging collection with appealing horn charts and a series of comfortable readings of recent and vintage standards... a good, confident set..."

Frank Sinatra and Count Basie - Sinatra At The Sands

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: sinatatthe_2013) 



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

This double album presents Sinatra and Basie at the height of their powers, in a setting especially conducive to both men's music, the big room at the Sands Hotel in Vegas. If you missed it -- and I'm sure most all of us did -- here's your chance to go back in time and be seated with the beautiful people, front row center. This two disc all tube-mastered analog set is practically the only way you'll ever be able to hear the greatest vocalist of his generation -- in his prime no less -- performing with one of the swingingest big bands of the time.
