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

  • "...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."

Overall, Sail Away is one of Newman's finest works, musically adventurous and displaying a lyrical subtlety that would begin to fade in his subsequent works."

Our Price: $79.99

  • Very good Hot Stamper sound for our favorite Linda Ronstadt album, hands down her Masterpiece

  • Musically it's the best record Tom Petty ever made - it's an underrated late '70s Rock Classic
  • Three of Petty's best songs are on this one - Restless, I Need To Know and Listen To Her Heart - and they sound amazing
  • "Overall, the current LP boasts an impressive stylistic cohesiveness with its predecessor, but what makes the album exciting are the fresh hints of openness and expansion just beneath the surface. The rhythms are a bit looser, and there's a new emphasis on Petty's rough, driving, rock & roll guitar in the mix." Rolling Stone

  • Once again Robert Ludwig delivers the Rock and Roll Power, and it only took us about ten copies to find one that makes good on its promise

  • 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."
