Our Price: $149.99

  • With excellent Hot Stamper sound on all four sides, this is a great way to hear The Wall
  • Too many songs with Demo Quality sound to mention, but the children's chorus in Another Brick..., Pt. 1 is always fun
  • James Guthrie labored mightily to make this one as big, bold and immersive as any Prog Rock recording we know of - and succeeded brilliantly
  • 4 1/2 stars in the AMG, and proof that analog in 1979 could still be amazing, hence its status as a Top 100 Title

Derek and the Dominos
Layla

  (Item #: dereklayla_1707) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This copy delivers consistently good sound throughout - all four sides earned Hot Stamper grades and play quietly
  • Some of our favorite Clapton songs are here: Bell Bottom Blues, Tell The Truth, Little Wing, Layla and Have You Ever Loved A Woman?
  • One of the most difficult albums to find great sound for, but a lot easier for us now that we know what pressings to look for
  • Clapton's greatest album: "But what really makes Layla such a powerful record is that Clapton, ignoring the traditions that occasionally painted him into a corner, simply tears through these songs with burning, intense emotion."

James Taylor
Gorilla

  (Item #: taylogoril_1611x) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Two outstanding Double Plus (A++) sides, with excellent sound for one of James Taylor's best softer rock albums
  • Soulful soft rock at its best and his best, an underappreciated album by our man JT, and one that belongs in your collection
  • Mexico, How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) and I Was A Fool To Care are standouts, but there's not really a weak track here
  • Rolling Stone notes that "With Gorilla, Taylor is well on his way to staking out new ground. What he's hit upon is the unlikely mating of his familiar low-keyed, acoustic guitar-dominated style with L.A. harmony rock and the sweet, sexy school of rhythm and blues."
