Kris Kristofferson
The Silver Tongued Devil and I

  (Item #: kristsilve_1705_) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • A n outstanding pressing of this Kristofferson Classic: Triple Plus (A+++) on side one, Double Plus (A++) on side two
  • Both sides are big and spacious with a huge three-dimensional soundfield and correct tonality in the midrange
  • We were struck by how much these songs have in common with those by writers such as Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan
  • 5 stars: "Kristofferson retained his gift for intimate love songs, and the album's most memorable selections turned out to be "Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)" (which became a semi-standard) and "When I Loved Her."

Elvis Costello
Imperial Bedroom

Our Price: $349.99

  • With Triple Plus (A+++) sound or something close to it on both sides this is as good a copy as we have ever offered

  • Allmusic 5 Stars: "Essentially, the songs on Imperial Bedroom are an extension of Costello's jazz and pop infatuations on Trust. Costello's music is complex and intricate, yet it flows so smoothly, it's easy to miss the bitter, brutal lyrics."
