Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises.

In late 2009 we had just finished a shootout for this hard-rockin’ album, our first since January of ’08, and what we were hearing this time around BLEW OUR MINDS. This record got a whole lot better over the course of the last twenty months or so. I’ll go out on a limb here and say that the drum sound on this record is the right up there with the most present, punchy and realistic I have ever heard on record.  (more…)

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame  and a recording that comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

The sound was JUMPING out of the speakers and filling the room. 

Sometimes a copy is just BIGGER than the others – it’s somehow physically wider and taller than other pressings, how we haven’t a clue — and that’s exactly what this copy had more of than any other: SIZE. If you’ve never heard a rock record like this — and knowing how rare they are it’s more than possible — you are in for a treat here.

If you’re a fan of this kind of stuff (as we definitely are) you aren’t going to want to let this one get away. Movin’ On and the title track are going to absolutely blow your mind. The best sounding tracks have MASTER TAPE QUALITY SOUND. (more…)

  • Incredible sound on both sides with each rating a Triple Plus (A+++) or close to it – size, clarity, balance, energy; it’s all here
  • If you’re playing this one good and loud you’ll feel like you’re in the room with the boys as they kick out the jams
  • This is the right sound for this album – take it from us, it is not easy to find a copy that’s this right
  • “Vocalist and songwriter Paul Rodgers wrote two acoustic-based rock ballads that would live on forever in the annals of great rock history: “Shooting Star” and the Grammy-winning “Feel Like Makin’ Love” 4 stars

The sophomore jinx is nowhere to be found on this album. In fact, you could make a pretty good case that this is actually a better album than their debut. The best pressings of Straight Shooter have ROCK ENERGY that cannot be beat!

What You Want

It’s got exactly what you want from this brand of straight ahead rock and roll: presence in the vocals; solid, note-like bass; big punchy drums, and the kind of live-in-the-studio energetic, clean and clear sound that Bad Company (and Free before them) practically invented. (AC/DC is another band with that kind of live studio sound. With big speakers and the power to drive them YOU ARE THERE.) (more…)
