Carly Simon - Boys In The Trees

How Clearly Can You See the Hi-hat

  (Item #: simonboysi_listen) 



The Hi-hat Listening Test -- yet another in our series of Home Audio Exercises.

Carly's soulful version of You Belong To Me is what made this album a Must Own back in the day (and still does). During our shootout, as we listened to the song over and over again on copy after copy, it became clear that the best pressings allowed us to easily hear the drummer's hi-hat within the dense mix of this heavily produced pop song. On most copies it's buried and all but inaudible.

If the pressing you own is full-bodied and tonally correct, and you can easily pick out the rhythmic contribution of the hi-hat within the mix, you have a copy with the kind of transparency that few we played managed to achieve.

Carly Simon - Another Passenger

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: simonanoth_2010) 



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

A TOP PRESSING of what we consider to be the best -- and best-sounding -- Carly Simon album! I’ve been telling people for years how amazing this album can sound, but we almost never hear it sound quite like this! Side one rates A++, side two rates A+++ and both sides play quietly. Most copies are gritty and edgy, but this one is smoother, sweeter and much more musical.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: simonanoth_wtlf) 



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

There's one quality in particular that added immensely to our enjoyment of the music -- gobs and gobs of Tubey Magic. The copies that were opaque, dry, flat and "modern" sounding -- which pretty much describes practically every Heavy Vinyl record we've played in the last five years -- bored us to tears, not surprisingly in the very same way that most Heavy Vinyl does.

Carly Simon - Anticipation

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: simonantic_2011) 



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

TWO INCREDIBLE SIDES ON QUIET VINYL! We just finished our first big shootout for Anticipation in three years, and here’s the copy that finished at the top of the heap. Both sides have the kind of warm, sweet sound that perfectly conveys the emotional qualtity of Carly's performance. Drop the needle on the song "I've Got To Have You" for some of the best Carly Simon sound you will ever hear -- we were blown away!

Carly Simon - Boys In The Trees

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: simonboysi_2010) 



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

This White Hot Stamper side one backed with an almost-as-amazing side two has the sound we were looking for on BOTH sides of the album: rich and sweet, with the kind of TRANSPARENCY that lets you hear every breath Carly takes. This is not phony detail -- her voice is natural and full-bodied, and the entire production is tonally correct from top to bottom. This pressing is just doing its job -- showing you what’s really on the master tape -- and not too many of the copies we played were able to do that.

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: simoncarly_2015) 



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

Two Shootout Winning sides bundled together to give you top sound for the whole album. We just finished our first shootout for this, Carly's debut, and found a lot to like about both the sound and the music.

That's not to say that we'd put this recording on the same level as an audiophile knockout like Dark Side of the Moon, but the richness and the sweetness of the midrange on the best copies is exactly what you'd want to hear. Credit must go to venerable Eddie Kramer, producer and engineer. He knows how to get the big sound here all right.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: simoncarly_wtlf) 



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

Too many copies we played erred on the hi-fi side, with not enough warmth. The copies that sound incredibly clean and clear just didn't do much for us; they weren't able to convey the intimacy and emotion of the music. I'm sure you've had a similar experience playing CDs of some of your old favorites. You keep wondering why you liked the music in the first place. Don't blame the music. Blame those crappy CDs.

Carly Simon - Hotcakes

What to Listen For

  (Item #: simonhotca_wtlf) 



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

Many copies of this album suffer from (at least) one of two problems: unnatural hi-fi sound or considerable grit and grain. Both are in large part due to the processing-intensive production of Richard Perry. On the best copies it's easy to understand his choices as the sound is quite lovely. Unfortunately that rich, sweet sound he obviously got on to the master tape didn't quite make it to the average vinyl pressing of the album.

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: simonnosec_depth) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For.

The immensely talented engineer ROBIN GEOFFREY CABLE worked his audio magic on this album. You may recall that he recorded a number of the greatest sounding rock records of all time, Elton John's self-titled second album and Tumbleweed Connection, both in 1970, as well as this album and Nilsson Schmilsson in 1972, with Richard Perry producing.

Carly Simon - No Secrets

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: simonnosec_2012) 



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

This Elektra Butterfly Label LP is ONE OF THE VERY BEST SOUNDING COPIES OF THIS ALBUM I’VE EVER HEARD, with both sides receiving our top grad of A+++! We just finished playing a big old stack of pressings and this copy was clearly the best overall.

It ain't easy to find copies of the album that give you big, rich sound and breathy vocals, but this White Hot Stamper gives you all that and more, taking the sound of the album far beyond any expectations you may have. It's that good.
