Our Price: $399.99

  • A KILLER sounding copy with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound from the first note to the last - this is As Good As It Gets, folks

It's rich, subtly layered music, but its best attribute is that it comes on easy, never sounding labored or overworked..."

  • From first note to last, the sound is rich and solid, with driving energy, plenty of bass, and a relaxed musical quality that we found missing from many of the copies we played

But where Dylan had taken a world-weary, cynical tone, Springsteen was exuberant. His street scenes could be haunted and tragic... but they were still imbued with romanticism and youthful energy."
