Billy Joel
Songs In The Attic

  (Item #: joel_songs_1801) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • An excellent copy with Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides for Billy Joel's Best Album - you heard it here first
  • Incredibly clean, clear and open with tons of bottom end weight and energy - there are few studio recordings that have dynamics like these
  • We forget how compressed most recordings are - it takes a record like this to show you how much LIFE there is in live music
  • "...every song is given a fuller, better arrangement that makes it all spring to life. "Los Angelenos" and "Everybody Loves You Now" hit harder in the live setting, while ballads like "She's Got a Way," "Summer, Highland Falls," and "I've Loved These Days" are richer and warmer in these versions."

  • "Wind & Wuthering followed quickly on the heels of A Trick of the Tail and they're very much cut from the same cloth, working the same English eccentric ground that was the group's stock in trade since Trespass."

  • Her last great record - fortunately for us audiophiles it's spacious, open and powerful with present vocals and solid bass
  • Relatively quiet, Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout - they don't come any quieter in our experience
  • "On her first new studio album of original material in five years, Joni Mitchell achieved more of a balance between her pop abilities and her jazz aspirations, meanwhile rediscovering a more direct, emotional lyric approach. The result was her best album since the mid-'70s."

Sale Price: $119.00 (You save $30.99 / 21%)


  • This British original earned excellent sonic grades of Double Plus (A++) on both sides - the band sounds great here

  • The domestic pressings are obviously made from dubs, and only the best of the Brits have sound even approaching this copy
  • ""By Your Side," "I Learnt How to Pray," and "Last Time Forever" are all darker tunes than just about any Squeeze had done so far but they carry an emotional punch." Boy, do they
