John Coltrane
A Love Supreme

  (Item #: coltrloves_1910_12) 

Our Price: $549.99

  • With two Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sides, this is a truly killer early stereo pressing - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Here's the explosive improvisational energy that made the album such a revelation in 1964 - copies of A Love Supreme that sound as good as this one are rare indeed
  • 5 stars: "Trane's classic quartet of Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison stepped into the studio and created one of the most thought-provoking, concise, and technically pleasing albums of their bountiful relationship (not to mention his best-selling to date)... It is almost impossible to imagine a world without A Love Supreme having been made, and it is equally impossible to imagine any jazz collection without it."

  • 5 stars: "Blonde on Blonde is an album of enormous depth, providing endless lyrical and musical revelations on each play... It's the culmination of Dylan's electric rock & roll period — he would never release a studio record that rocked this hard, or had such bizarre imagery, ever again."

Frank Sinatra
The Concert Sinatra

  (Item #: sinatconce_2001) 

Our Price: $499.99

  • Off the charts Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it from the first note to the last
  • This album ranks right up there with the best of the Reprise era - recorded in 1963, Sinatra was still in his prime
  • Sinatra's voice always sounds natural even when he's at his loudest, this is quite an accomplishment and a sure sign that not only is the recording itself excellent, but the pressing derived from it has been mastered and pressed to the highest audiophile standards
  • "Sinatra is given the opportunity to demonstrate his full emotional range, from the melodrama of "Ol' Man River" to the tender romanticisim of "Bewitched," which helps make The Concert Sinatra one of his most fulfilling albums of the era."

Frank Sinatra
Swing Along With Me

  (Item #: sinatswing_along_1911) 

Our Price: $449.99

  • These vintage stereo sides are As Good As It Gets -- rich, smooth and full-bodied with wonderfully present vocals and all of the Tubey Magic that's missing from most copies

  • "Twelve of the most uninhibited Sinatra things ever recorded!"
  • "Recorded with Billy May, Sinatra Swings was Frank Sinatra's first straight swing album for Reprise Records. In terms of content and approach, the record is remarkably similar to his final Capitol swing effort, Come Swing with Me."

  (Item #: cole_lovei_2001) 

Our Price: $449.99

  • With the biggest, clearest, richest, most present and most natural vocal reproduction, this copy took Nat's performance to another level
  • If all you know of this album is the weirdly unnatural remix DCC did (on Analogue Productions vinyl too) this pressing will be nothing less than a revelation
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Nat King Cole's collaborations with Gordon Jenkins rank among the finest from either artist or arranger. 1957's Love Is the Thing remains the epitome of the pair's undeniable compatibility, and it topped the album charts for eight weeks."

  • 4 1/2 stars: "In 1965, the Stones finally proved themselves capable of writing classic rock singles that mined their R&B/blues roots, but updated them into a more guitar-based, thoroughly contemporary context. The first enduring Jagger-Richards classics are here..."

  • "The set opens with the title, a lilting waltz that nonetheless gets an original treatment here... Davis waxes light and lyrical with his Harmon mute... [Hank] Mobley plays a strictly journeyman solo, and then Coltrane blows the pack away with a solo so deep inside the harmony it sounds like it's coming from somewhere else."

Sinatra performed the songs twice as fast as was expected; consequently, it's one of his jazziest swing sets, with the musicians spitting out energetic, forceful solos and providing tough, gutsy support."

  (Item #: adderjumpf_1910_12) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • An incredible sounding copy - this early stereo pressing boasts Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish
  • We were knocked out by the Tubey Magical midrange of this killer original, with all the saxophone's breath and bite you would expect to hear on an All Tube affair from 1958
  • This is precisely what is sure to be missing from whatever reissue has been made from the tapes (or, to be clear, a modern digital master copied from who-knows-what-tapes)
  • "Jump for Joy is Adderley's reinterpretation of a Duke Ellington stage musical from 1941... Hearing Adderley's often thrilling, always well-constructed alto sax improvisations over tunes like "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good" is reason enough for the album to exist..."

On their previous collaboration, both Sinatra and Basie sounded a bit worn out, but throughout this record they play with energy and vigor."

With Jim (Roger) McGuinn arranging and playing second guitar and banjo, this album, which included a fine version of Seeger's "Turn! Turn! Turn!," had a clear (if overlooked) influence on the folk-rock he pioneered with the Byrds."

  • Superb sound for this copy of Orbison's 1963 release, with both stereo sides earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades or BETTER
  • It does have some condition issues though - finding clean copies of early Orbison albums has always been an uphill battle, which is why so few copies have ever made it to the site
  • Full-bodied and warm, exceptionally open and clear with wonderfully sweet vocals - this pressing presents the music the way it was meant to be heard - thanks Bill Porter!
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Orbison's voice was never better than on this recording. The heights he reaches on the title cut, 'Lonely Wine,' the swaggering country and R&B of 'Blue Avenue,' and 'My Prayer' are simply mind-blowing... the song choices are impeccable."

Dave Brubeck
Bossa Nova USA

  (Item #: brubebossa_1902_1905_1908) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Presenting one of the best sounding Brubeck records we have ever played with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound from start to finish, just shy of our Shootout Winner!
  • Clean, clear, spacious and present yet still super rich and full, this is Columbia All Tube Sound at its best
  • So rich, clear and resolving this copy will put even most copies of Time Out to shame
  • "With the popularization of bossa nova in the early ’60s, practically every recording artist had to have at least one bossa nova album. This effort by the Dave Brubeck Quartet is better than most due to the high quality of the compositions, of which the title cut is best-known."

I Left My Heart In San Fran

  (Item #: benneileft_1911)

  • This 360 copy of Tony Bennett's 1962 classic has outstanding sound, rating Double Plus (A++) or close to it on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Brilliant engineering by Frank Laico at his favorite recording digs (and ours), Columbia 30th Street studios
  • 5 Stars and the winner of two Grammy Awards in 1962 including Record of the Year (not bad!)
  • "From here on until the world changed again toward the late '60s, Bennett would not have to feel that he had to compromise his art for popularity, making up-tempo singles while longing to do ballads and swing material instead. I Left My Heart In San Francisco, a gold-selling Top Ten hit that stayed in the charts almost three years, demonstrated that he could have it all."

Astrud Gilberto
The Astrud Gilberto Album

  (Item #: gilbeastru_1912ex) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides or close to them, this Van Gelder mastered copy was one of the best we played in our shootout (but the vinyl is iffy at best)
  • The sound here has real texture to the strings and breath to the vocals, key elements if this music is going to work
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The Astrud Gilberto Album was at least as good as Getz/Gilberto (despite what jazz fans say), for several reasons. Gilberto sounded beautiful on a range of material, from the sentimental "Dindi" to the playful "Agua de Beber," and as long as intelligent musicians were playing to her strengths (as they do here), the results were splendid."

  • Allmusic customers rate the album 4 Stars: "For her second Verve LP, Astrud Gilberto expanded her range from a raft of Gilberto/Jobim standards to embrace the large and obviously daunting catalogue of classic American pop."
