Super Hot Stamper

Queen
Queen

  (Item #: queenqueen_1811_1) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • With a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side two and a side one that's close to it, this original pressing has the analog magic in its grooves
  • Both sides here are big, full-bodied, clear and spacious with a nice bottom end and plenty of rock energy
  • "Almost every one of Queen's signatures are already present, from Freddie Mercury's operatic harmonies to Brian May's rich, orchestral guitar overdubs and the suite-like structures of "Great King Rat"... It showcases the band in all their ornate splendor yet it's strangely lean and hard, revealing just how good the band was in their early days as a hard rock band."
  • Plays with surfaces as quiet as any we can find on both sides - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus

Super Hot Stamper

Queen
A Day At the Races

  (Item #: queendayat_1811) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this copy was one of the best we played in our recent shootout
  • Tie Your Mother Down and Somebody to Love are both wonderful sounding on this EARLY British pressing
  • It's incredibly difficult to find big, bold, lively sound like this for Queen - it takes us years to do the shootout
  • "Its sleek, streamlined finish is the biggest indication that Queen has entered a new phase, where they're globe-conquering titans instead of underdogs on the make."

Hot Stamper

Queen
A Night at the Opera

  (Item #: queennight_1810_1) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • You'll find solid Hot Stamper sound on both sides of this stereo pressing
  • Full-bodied and balanced with the kind of smooth musicality that's not always easy to find
  • Bohemian Rhapsody is killer here (if you've got the system to play it good and LOUD)
  • 5 stars: "But the appeal of A Night at the Opera is in its detailed, meticulous productions. It's prog rock with a sense of humor as well as dynamics, and Queen never bettered their approach anywhere else."

Queen - A Day At the Races

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: queendayat_2015) 



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

TWO SUPERB A+++ SIDES! Big and lively, rich and full, clear and open, no other copy in our shootout impressed us as much as this one.

Most of the copies we played weren't even worth putting a grade on. We would feel horrible selling a record that we knew sounded as bad as those dogs. It may never be a Demo Disc, but on a White Hot Stamper copy like this it's a whole lot of fun!

Queen - The Game

What to Listen For

  (Item #: queengame_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.

The best sounding side ones were rarely as good as the best sounding side twos.

Even the good side ones tended to have a trace of harmonic distortion and compression that is simply nowhere to be found on the good side twos. How and why this is we have no idea. Since every copy had the same sonic issues we discounted it in our grading. Only the better copies bring the hits on side one to life and give them the size and power we know they can have.

Queen - The Game

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: queengame_2011) 



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

Two SUPERB SIDES with side one beating all comers to achieve White Hot Stamper status! Throughout this copy you get solid bass, tubey magic, breathy vocals and BIG BOLD sound!

But watch out: this side one kicks it up to a whole 'nother level, with BIGGER energy, BIGGER bass and even more PRESENT and breathy vocals from Mr. Mercury. This is without a doubt some of the best sound we have ever heard for Queen, no ifs, ands or buts about it.

Queen - A Night at the Opera

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: queennight_2017) 



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

Triple Plus (A+++) on side one and nearly that on side two (A++ to A+++) make this the best copy to ever hit the site. The sound is HUGE with WHOMP like nothing you have ever heard on this album - finally, the code has been cracked.

Queen - News Of the World

Our Shootout Winner from 2007

  (Item #: queennewso_2007) 



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

This EMI import LP has TWO SUPERB DEMO DISC QUALITY SIDES! Each received an A+++, making this BY FAR THE BEST SINGLE COPY we have ever heard. This copy set a new standard for the sound of this album; we’ve never heard anything like it!

Queen - Jazz

Rockin' Out with Fat Bottomed Girls

  (Item #: queenjazz_wtlf) 



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.

There is a tendency in the recording to be a little "hot" tonally on the vocals and snare. The better copies like this one keep it under control, with the lesser copies getting much too lean and gritty to play loudly. What good is a raver like Fat Bottomed Girls if you can't turn it up and really rock out with it?

Queen - News Of The World

Stomping and Clapping with the Fans

  (Item #: queennewso_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 NOTW.

Side one starts out with Queen's back-to-back anthemic classics, "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions". Does it get any better for a Queen fan? Hell no!

The stomps and claps that introduce the former should make you feel like you are in a stadium full of people with a single goal - to rock you. Those stomps and claps need weight and clarity, an unusual combination. One without the other is not going to cut it.

DCC Debunked

  (Item #: queennight_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

Murky, opaque and compressed: yes, we can agree it has never been an especially good sounding record on anything but the most difficult to find UK pressings, but does it deserve this kind of mastering disrespect? Isn't the idea to try and FIX what is wrong, rather than to make it worse? At collector prices no less. Don't waste your money.

A Hall of Shame pressing and another DCC LP debunked.
