180 Gram LP    

Heart Like A Wheel (1974) is Linda Ronstadt's fifth solo LP release and the last of her studio projects for Capitol Records. Ronstadt brought in producer Peter Asher and multi-instrumentalist/arranger Andrew Gold. Asher and Gold have been credited over the years as being a significant part of the album's artistic and commercial success. The result proved to be Ronstadt's commercial breakthrough. Released in November 1974, Heart Like A Wheel became the first of her three No. 1 peaks on the Billboard 200 album chart, right alongside the No.1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 for the first single "You're No Good."
Cisco's 180-gram LP was cut by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes using AcousTech's all-analogue cutting system for optimum reproduction of Val Garay's and David Hassinger's recordings.

Very well done re-master of the original LP. I find this version to be more open and crisper than the original. As some have said, there is an ever so slight sonic advantage to the original...but good luck finding one that's near-mint...get this one, you'll love it!!!

Absolutely Breathtaking !

Master cutter Kevin Gray does it again, with this timeless Classic album from the one and only Linda. HIGHLY recommended.

Buy Two Copies!

Another great job by AcousTech Mastering! If you like Linda, you need to buy this one while it is still in print.

Linda at her best

Excellent album. This pressing is incredible. Clean and dynamic. Great music, great voice, and world class musicians. This is why you paid so much for a good analog system - sit back and enjoy.

Slightly better than original

If you don't have, or can't find a clean original, this is certainly better than nothing.

The re-issue will be flat and clean, and the cover is a great improvement over a poorly-cared-for original.

Sound-wise...well, if you don't have, or can't find a clean original, you will never know whether it is better or not.

If you have one...spend your money on something you can't get.
