  (Item #: addermercy_1707_2) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Excellent Double Plus (A++) sound of both sides of this 1965 release, one of the better copies from our shootout
  • One of the man's most enjoyable albums - the sound is bigger and livelier and above all balanced, avoiding many of the problems of the originals
  • Joe Zawinul (Weather Report) wrote the title song, which became a big hit for Adderley (and later The Buckinghams), and he plays on the album
  • AMG 5 Stars: "Adderley's irrepressible exuberance was a major part of his popularity, and no document captures that quality as well -- or with such tremendous musical rewards -- as Mercy, Mercy, Mercy."

Creedence Clearwater Revival
Willy and the Poor Boys

  (Item #: creedwilly_1707) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • An outstanding copy with Double Plus (A++) grades on both sides - open, present and balanced
  • The sound is unusually clean and clear with surprising punch down low and tons of energy
  • Surprisingly quiet vinyl for this album -- copies we find are very rarely as quiet as this
  • Five Stars on Allmusic, featuring Down On The Corner, Fortunate Son, Midnight Special and more
  • "Fortunate Son is one of the greatest, hardest rock & rollers ever cut, so it might seem to be out of step with an album that is pretty laid-back and friendly, but there's that elemental joy that by late '69 was one of CCR's main trademarks."

Beethoven / Symphony No. 9 / Ansermet

  (Item #: beethsym9_1707) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Side two is just shy of our top grade (A++ to A+++), wonderfully rich and lively, and second only to the best we heard all day
  • Side one is also superb, A++, which easily makes this pressing a Must Own Beethoven 9th
  • Both sides play reasonably well for a London pressing from 1960, but there are some issues, noted below
  • "...the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande play very well, facing every challenge with musical integrity that reveals to the listener that emotional engagement with the score is far more meaningful than virtuosity for its own sake."
More of the music of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
