John Coltrane
A Love Supreme

  (Item #: coltrloves_1810_2) 

Our Price: $349.99

  • This superb pressing boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last
  • The sound is wonderful -- big, lively, open and clear with Tubey Magical richness you never expected
  • 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 does 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."

Our Price: $119.99

  • 4 Stars: "Mulligan and Brookmeyer always seem to stimulate one another's playing to a high level, and this album is no exception. The group gets into a swinging groove right away with its updated treatment of a Count Basie favorite, 'Jive at Five,' followed by Mulligan's brisk yet intricate jazz waltz 'Four for Three.'"

Ray Charles

  (Item #: charlallti_1810) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A Great sounding copy with Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it on all four sides!

  • This is some big, bold, absolutely glorious Tubey Magical analog - the tape to disc transfer is Hard To Fault (HTF), making a mockery of the audiophile remasters to come
