Super Hot Stamper

Dean Martin
This Time I'm Swingin'

  (Item #: martithist_1901) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding copy that lets this music swing the way it's supposed to - solid Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it throughout
  • Both sides are wonderful with big, full and Tubey Magical sound -- Deano's vocals are Right On The Money
  • With Nelson Riddle arranging, 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..."

Super Hot Stamper

Dean Martin
Dream With Dean

  (Item #: martidream_1812) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • This hard-to-find Dean Martin Classic returns to the site with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last
  • One of our all-time favorite male vocal LPs - the sound on both sides is both warm and natural, with excellent presence and transparency
  • These are almost impossible to find in playable condition these days (and even this one is not as quiet as we would like)
  • "It sounds as if they tracked the album in one afternoon, and it is not only a very pleasant listening experience, it shows what a tremendous vocalist Dean Martin truly was." - Allmusic

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.
