    Ordinary would've played well over Portland's FM Kink smooth jazz.

    In another thread, Ed mentions the " audio-master-plus " series,
    and, many of my cd's are stamped with that insignia.
    My Voice Of The Heart cd, is an "audio-master-plus, "
    and, it sounds so very good to my ears.

    So, whether or not " audio-master-plus " has any sonic significance,
    (outside of marketing),
    I still believe that Voice Of The Heart is a very good album !
    Lovelines great...
    but, in its own way, a very nice listen.
    I'd like to think that the new 2017 vinyl set with increase appreciation of these three LP's:
    Passage, Voice Of The Heart, and
    Jeff likes this.

    As I recall from somewhere else, apparently the AM+ logo was first used by A&M on high quality vinyl pressings of the late-70's, early-80's to indicate that the mastering and production was of higher quality than the regular vinyl pressing. And when CD's came out, A&M just slapped the logo on to indicate that CD's offered a better sound quality. It was A&M's version of the warning that you saw on a lot of CD's of the time (I can think of Michael Bolton's The Hunger and Burl Ives' Have A Holly Jolly Christmas, with Ives' CD I just picked up about 8 years ago, having notes saying that CD's offer a higher resolution for audio than the "old" analog tapes, and you might hear limitations on the CD) that were coming from analog copies.
