  (Item #: beatlsgtpe_1703) 

Our Price: $499.99

  • A stunning copy with a Triple Plus (A+++) on side two, a Double Plus (A++) on side one, amazing from first note to last
  • Huge, spacious and detailed, with the Tubey Magic of a fresh tape, this is the way you want to hear Sgt. Pepper
  • Most pressings - especially the new ones - have nothing like this kind of Tubey Magic, space and energy
  • A Better Records Top 100 - "It's possible to argue that there are better Beatles albums, yet no album is as historically important as this."

In The Wind

  (Item #: peterinthe_1703_1)

  • "Their third recording was one of the group's stronger outings... In particular, this record was essential to boosting the profile of Bob Dylan, including their huge hit cover of "Blowin' in the Wind..."

Neil Young
Rust Never Sleeps

  (Item #: youngrustn_1703) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • Double Plus (A++) or better on both sides, making this one of the better copies we've heard in quite a while
  • It's not easy to find copies that get both the quieter, acoustic material and the big, rockin' Crazy Horse stuff right, but this one did
  • There's a mark on side one (Thrasher) that makes some ticks, so we're offering this copy at a serious discount
  • 5 stars: "His strongest collection since Tonight's the Night, its obvious antecedent was Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home, and, as Dylan did, Young divided his record into acoustic and electric sides while filling his songs with wildly imaginative imagery."

Van Morrison
Wavelength

  (Item #: morriwavel_1703) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • Outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides and quiet vinyl, this is a great way to hear Van in 1978
  • Richer, warmer and bigger than most of the other copies we played, with the kind of smoothness that's essential to the album's enjoyment
  • His biggest selling album to date? Seems hard to believe but that's what is says on Wikipedia - it went gold in 3 months
  • Time magazine raved: "Morrison has made two, maybe three albums that rank high among the finest of all rock 'n' roll. Wavelength is good enough to stand close by Morrison's best work, a record of sinuous, sensuous magic. The man just can't be beat."

Emmylou Harris
Blue Kentucky Girl

  (Item #: harribluek_1703) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Side one here is superb, nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) - the kind of rich, natural sound we found on far too few copies
  • Side two is nearly as good at Double Plus (A++), with none of the vocal edginess that many EH albums suffer from
  • Surprisingly full-bodied and not overly detailed for a recording from 1979 - they still knew what they were doing then
  • Emmylou's traditional country album, with a stronger acoustic feel
