Our Price: $149.99

  • These two Double Plus (A++) sides are proof positive that Trio is a surprisingly well recorded album

The Pretenders

  • Insanely good sound throughout -- Triple Plus (A+++) on the first side, Double Plus (A++) on the second; we rarely have copies that rock the way this one does

  • Five Stars: "Few rock & roll records rock as hard or with as much originality as the Pretenders' eponymous debut album. A sleek, stylish fusion of Stonesy rock & roll, new wave pop, and pure punk aggression, Pretenders is teeming with sharp hooks and a viciously cool attitude."

  • One Eighty has an excellent mix of rockers and softer pop ballads. The last track, Biggest Part Of Me, no matter how many times you've heard it, on the radio, wherever you happen to be, is unabashed Soft Rock Magic, the way Bread's big ballads are Soft Rock Magic, and we make no apologies for loving the hell out of them both
  • ""Biggest Part of Me" combines rich Beach Boys-styled harmonies with a heartfelt lyric to create a rich slice of blue-eyed soul that gave the group a number two hit single...

  • 5 stars "Song for song, they deliver not just mammoth riffs but songs that are anthems, from the greasy "Shoot to Thrill" to the pummeling "Back in Black," which pales only next to "You Shook Me All Night Long," the greatest one-night-stand anthem in rock history."

  • "Certainly a quantum leap from the organic R&B impressionism of the band's early LPs and the gripping short stories of Making Movies, Love Over Gold is an ambitious, sometimes difficult record that is exhilarating in its successes and, at the very least, fascinating in its indulgences." - Rolling Stone

  • Big, clean and clear, with far more bass than the average copy, this pressing gets this big band to sound like a Big Band
  • Jackson's 1984 release here has its sonic problems, but a copy as good as this one goes a long way toward fixing them
  • "Body and Soul uses some of the character of 1982's Night and Day album, but instead of splitting up the music into mild jazz, pop, and modern R&B, he decided to tackle one of the genres wholeheartedly, and in doing so he came up with a truly impeccable release."

  • 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."

  • You've heard of the so-called "Hot Mix" for Zep II? Well, this is the "Fat Mix" for Winelight, and it's awesome

  (Item #: squeecosif_1703) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This British original earned excellent sonic grades of Double Plus (A++) on both sides - this is the Right Sound for This Music

  • The domestic pressings are obviously made from dubs, and only the best of the Brits have sound even approaching that of 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
