Joni Mitchell
For The Roses

  (Item #: mitchforth_1906_10) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two outstanding Double Plus (A++) sides, this White Label Asylum pressing was one of the best we played in our recent shootout - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • The sound is especially rich, warm and natural, with exceptional immediacy to Joni's vocals and Tubey Magic for days
  • One of the best sounding Joni records, on a par with Court and Spark and Blue - fine company indeed
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The lyrics here are among Mitchell's best, continuing in the vein of gripping honesty and heartfelt depth exhibited on Blue.... More than a bridge between great albums, this excellent disc is a top-notch listen in its own right."

Talking Heads
True Stories

  (Item #: talkitrues_1905_10) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Excellent sound throughout with both sides earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades or BETTER
  • Here's the midrange magic that’s surely missing from whatever 180g reissue has been made from the tapes (or, to be clear, a modern digital master copied from who-knows-what-tapes)
  • This is that rare copy with top quality sound and exceptionally quiet vinyl - it plays Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus, as quiet as they ever do
  • "Despite its perfunctory nature, however, True Stories is not without its charms... "Dream Operator" is one of the most affecting tunes Talking Heads ever recorded; the closing-credits theme "City of Dreams" is similarly touching." - All Music

The Band
Rock Of Ages

  (Item #: band_rocko_1902_7_10) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • Superb sound throughout with all four sides rating a solid Double Plus (A++) or BETTER - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • The best copies are surprisingly TRANSPARENT -- just listen to all the "room" around the vocals on these four sides
  • A classic double live album with a consistently well-arranged and energetically performed set of songs
  • 4 stars" "It could be argued that it captured the spirit of the Band at the time in a way none of their other albums do."
  • One of the few copies from our shootout that had no marks that play, a rarity for this title!

Townes Van Zandt
Delta Momma Blues

  (Item #: vanzadelta_1903_6_10) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • Excellent sound throughout for this original Tomato LP with both sides earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades
  • No one does beautifully spare and gut-wrenching country music quite like TVZ; this set contains two of his best songs -- Tower Song and Nothin'
  • "On Van Zandt's fourth album his voice hasn't yet attained the weary gravitas that made his later albums so shattering, but his dark, skewed visions of life are already in place. "Tower Song" is one of the minor key laments Van Zandt did so well, delivered with sparse guitar and subtle classical harp. The singer is leaving behind his wife and child, blaming her for the break up, although he admits he's a drunk and unable to communicate with her, except in song."

Led Zeppelin III

  (Item #: ledze3_1906_10) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Outstanding sound throughout with each side earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades or BETTER
  • Huge, Tubey Magical and lively, with solid weight down low and lots of space around all the instruments, this copy is guaranteed to rock like nothing you have ever heard
  • Since I've Been Loving You, Gallows Pole, Tangerine and That's the Way are just a few of the tracks that have truly Demo Disc sound
  • "On their first two albums, Led Zeppelin unleashed a relentless barrage of heavy blues and rockabilly riffs, but Led Zeppelin III provided the band with the necessary room to grow musically. While there are still a handful of metallic rockers, III is built on a folky, acoustic foundation that gives the music extra depth."

  • A Top 100 album, and a truly superb recording of the Dead at the peak of their creativity (along with American Beauty)
  • 5 stars: "The lilting Uncle John's Band, their first radio hit, opens the record and perfectly summarizes its subtle, spare beauty; complete with a new focus on more concise songs and tighter arrangements, the approach works brilliantly."

  (Item #: steelcount_1812_7_10) 

Our Price: $349.99

  • This shootout winning copy has stunning Triple Plus (A+++) sound - exceptionally quiet vinyl too!
  • The most fun copy we played all day - the killer sound lets the only real rock album this band ever made actually ROCK
  • Every song sounds As Good As It Gets on this White Hot 5 Star pressing
  • "Smart, conflicted bands from Weezer to the Eels owe Steely Dan big time, not because guys with glasses should stick together, but because on Countdown to Ecstasy, the band was human, not just brainy. Like good stretches of the Stones’ Exile on Main Street, this is a record where Steely Dan let slip their extraordinary mask of sarcasm, and could not disguise the joy in these excellent songs, or the fact that they were having a blast playing them."

  • Two of her biggest hits are here (and they still hold up): Stop Draggin' My Heart Around & Leather And Lace
  • AMG raves: "Equally engaging are less exposed tracks like the haunting "After the Glitter Fades." Hit producer Jimmy Iovine wisely avoids over-producing, and keeps things sounding organic on this striking debut."

In Person - Friday Night

Our Price: $99.99

  • Superb sound throughout for this Columbia reissue pressing with each side rating a solid Double Plus (A++) or very close to it
  • Love the sound of vintage tube jazz recordings? This copy delivers like very few records can
  • Rich, smooth, and above all Tubey Magical, here is the ideal sound for this very special live date
  • 4 1/2 stars: Davis himself has never played with more intensity and muscularity on record than he does here. He is absolutely fierce ... an underappreciated group because of its relatively short life, but as evidenced here, the bandmembers swung fast and hard and never looked back. Miles fans will need both [Friday and Saturday Night] to fully appreciate how special this engagement with this particular band was."

  • Musically this is one of our favorite Miles albums - the sound is Demo Disc Quality on the copies that sound the way this one does
  • "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."

Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. is a must-have for any fan of smart, fun, and exciting '60s pop. It doesn't get much better than this."

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding pressing of Pendulum with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Big, lively, open and clear with Tubey Magical richness - just the right sound for CCR
  • 4 stars: "John Fogerty spent time polishing the production, bringing in keyboards, horns, even a vocal choir. His songs became self-consciously serious and tighter, working with the aesthetic of the rock underground — Pendulum was constructed as a proper album, contrasting dramatically with CCR's previous records, all throwbacks to joyous early rock records where covers sat nicely next to hits and overlooked gems tucked away at the end of the second side."

Young depends heavily on friends, especially for vocals - Waylon Jennings sings harmony on six out of the ten tracks, and one of the others is a duet with Willie Nelson."

  • 4 1/2 stars: "The key to its success -- is that Richie doesn't even make a pretense of funk here... The ballads, of course, provided two big hits with "My Love" and "Truly," two numbers that illustrate that he was moving ever-closer to mainstream pop, since these are unapologetic AOR slow-dance tunes. [It's] a dynamic mainstream pop-soul record, one of the best the early '80s had to offer."
