Hear What's Great About Heart, "Greatest Hits" Sept. 13 2011
By Maurice Broussard - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a little late getting to this new release of Heart, "Greatest Hits," but it was well worth the wait.
To begin, unlike many "hits" albums, this collection, as advertised, is loaded with hits...the best of Heart's radio successes as well as concert favorites. The 17 solid tracks alone would be worth the price of admission, but what makes this 24K gold CD so impressive is the spectacular sound achievement produced by the talented remastering engineers from the Audio Fidelity record company. This CD clearly has more dynamics than any of the other Heart CDs and this outstanding sound is displayed track-after-track and quite obvious to any non-partial and fair observer.
There's a full and rich clarity in Ann WIlson's mesmerizing rock vocals that I'd argue has not been heard on the
original recordings from which the hits have been taken. It would be difficult to prove that Nancy Wilson is
underrated among rock guitarists, but her playing on these superbly remastered popular recordings leaves little
doubt that she is among the best the rock world has produced - not just "good-for-a-girl," but every tone, strum, pick and lick is especially vividly present in her rhythm and lead which is not to dismiss her perfect vocal harmonies. This band has always rocked - especially on the early records - and this new release is an enhanced gathering of further evidence.
The 24K gold CD is beautifully presented in a unique case that features the original LP cover art. Inside the package is a wonderful and informative full color 16 page booklet containing old and new photos, some Heart memorabilia (such as a back-stage pass) and lyrics to all the songs.
Heart fans may want to own this new "Greatest Hits" release for the hits alone; "Barracuda," "Magic Man,"
"Dreamboat Annie," "Crazy On You," "Straight On," "Heartless," "Tell It Like It Is" and a live version of Led
Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll" plus all of the important songs covering about a ten year period beginning in the mid-'70's - but they will come away, blown away by the amazing - and never-before heard - sounds coming out of the speakers. I'm among the Heart fan base and I'm letting all my friends (and associates) know exactly how strongly I feel about this "fan-tastic" release.

Love Early Heart 24K Sound Fantastic! Sept. 13 2011
By California Dreaming - Published on Amazon.com
I am a big fan of the early Heart hits and this compliation is right up my alley. The earlier hits album I have sounds very bright and edgy and very compressed.

This Audio Fidelity 24K really brings out all of the musical elements and the pacing even seems better. The brightness is gone and the compression has vanished and you can now hear the acoustic guitars and the drums which sound much more well rounded.

The vocals are much more life-like and this whole collection takes on new musical life.

This collection has never sounded as good as it does on this 24K Gold CD.

Way to go Audio Fidelity. IGNORE THE JAMIE TATE review. He is at it again with his personal attacks on Steve Hoffman and Audio Fidelity. This poor guy needs to get a life.

Excellent 24K gold remastering Feb. 28 2012
By chronometer - Published on Amazon.com

Despite the many positive reviews here I felt compelled to write a review of the 24K remaster as like some of the other reviewers here I'm baffled at some of statements made here in the negative reviews. My wife has the original Sony disc released in 1998 (Not 1990 and this fact is verified in the original liner notes) and I purchased this 24K Audio Fidelity remaster for her. I did that based on the sound quality of the other AF 24K remasters I have which I've been very impressed with. I have been able to A/B the 24K remaster with the original and these discs are quite different. Right from the start the remaster has CD Text (the original doesn't) and from the opening track the sound difference is quite evident. Strong, Strong Wind on the remaster opens with the sound of sticks which is notably absent from the 1998 version. The overall sound level of the 24K disc is about 4dBs less than the original yet peak levels are the about the same with greater bass extension and weight. Not only is the dynamic range greater but it has a smoother sound with a deeper soundstage, superior separation and tonality that lacks the sibilance of the original. The original is louder, more compressed, shallower, and harsher. These differences are constant throughout both discs. How the differences could be missed on a lesser system, yet alone a high-end system, or by trained ears is beyond me. The version of Dreamboat Annie on 24K disc is the same as on the 1998 disc yet different than the version that got the most radio airtime. That was Track 2 on the same titled album but if IIRC this is the version that was the last track on that album.

Steve Hoffman is very highly regarded and I feel he lived up to his reputation by doing a great remastering job on this. Whether you prefer the shallower, harsher, more in your face sound of the compressed original is a matter of taste but there's no question that these discs sound quite different.

Nice Sound & Selection Oct. 25 2011
By John J. Agnew, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
As others mentioned, this CD has pretty nice detailed sound!! Good sound level, too. Includes a nice selection of Heart's early Top 40 hits! A tiny CD bonus is the barely audible studio chat in the intro to "Heartless"!

I really like this cd,a lot of good songs, a couple I did not care for.These Gold disks are nice and clear,but not as good as the Mobile fidelity Gold.But since they are a lot cheaper it makes them a good deal.
