Stravinsky / The Firebird / Dorati

  (Item #: stravfireb_90226_1704) 

Our Price: $219.99

  • Double Plus (A++) Front Row Center sound or close to it on both sides for one of the all time great recordings of The Firebird
  • One listen to either side of this pressing and you'll see why this is one of the Top Mercury Titles of All Time
  • Dorati breathes life into the work as only he can and the Mercury engineers IN 1960 do him proud
  • "The magic lies in the elaborate orchestration and the excitingly uneven rhythmic writing. Stravinsky changes the orchestration of his themes at each repetition, breaks them down into their constituent parts, pushes their accents across the bar-line, and moves them out of sync with their own accompaniments."

Weather Report
Sweetnighter

  (Item #: weathsweet_1704) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • A killer copy hasn't hit the site in a while, but here's one with nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) Demo Disc sound on both sides
  • Boogie Woogie Waltz was one of the most mindblowing tracks found on any album from 1973
  • The sound is huge, spacious, lively, transparent and punchy - this is jazz fusion that really rocks
  • " It is the groove that rules this mesmerizing album, leading off with the irresistible 3/4 marathon deceptively tagged as the "Boogie Woogie Waltz" and proceeding through a variety of Latin-grounded hip-shakers." 4 stars

  • An excellent copy, with Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it on both sides, guaranteed to beat whatever you care to throw at it

Chet Atkins
In Hollywood

  (Item #: atkininhol_1704) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • "Triple Triple" for the reworked version of Chet Atkins' Classic - both sides earned our top grade (A+++)
  • Note that Chet re-recorded his guitar parts on this pressing - even stranger, the sound might just be better than the earlier release from 1959
  • Rich, smooth, sweet, full of ambience, dead-on correct tonality -- everything that we listen for in a great record is here
  • Including copious amounts of 1961 Living Stereo Tubey Magic - this pressing is just overflowing with it
  • "If the cover of At Home evokes the 1950s, the music on In Hollywood IS the 1950s: a warm, cozy, sophisticated album of mood music in the best sense."
