Blind Faith

Our Price: $249.99

  • Excellent sound on both sides: Double Plus (A++) for side one (which is the better side musically), with a side two that's close behind

  • Can't Find My Way Home sounds superb here - we guarantee you've never heard it sound better - quiet vinyl too
  • "As much a follow-up to Traffic's self-titled second album as it is to Cream's final output, it merges the soulful blues of the former with the heavy riffing and outsized song lengths of the latter for a very compelling sound unique to this band."

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
You're Gonna Get It!

  (Item #: pettyyoure_1801) 

Our Price: $69.99

  • You'll find excellent Hot Stamper grades on both sides of this 1978 pressing - side two plays a true Mint Minus
  • 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

  • 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."

  • A stunning sounding copy with each side rating a Double Plus (A++) or better!
