  • "Dylan had not only changed his sound, but his persona, trading the folk troubadour for a streetwise, cynical hipster ... it proved that rock & roll needn't be collegiate and tame in order to be literate, poetic, and complex." - 5 Stars

Trumpeter Clark Terry and guitarist Jim Hall co-star with Mulligan in the solo department. It is a pity that this orchestra could not prosper; all five of its recordings are worth getting." - All Music

  • Tull's best album? It gets my vote, and this copy will make the case if you turn it up good and loud
  • "Stand Up! has great textural interest, due, in part, to a more sophisticated recording technique, in part to the organ, mandolin, balalaika, etc., which Anderson plays to enrich each song. The band is able to work with different musical styles, but without a trace of the facile, glib manipulation which strains for attention."

War
Deliver The Word

  (Item #: war__deliv_1901_1) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side one and a side two that's right up there with it, this copy was one of the best we played in our recent shootout it
  • Thanks to the brilliant engineering of Chris Huston, the sound is War at its best: big, rich, smooth and clear, with the kind of low end whomp that few rock records from the era can claim
  • 4 Stars: "A smooth blend of the band's more progressive jazz-rock fusion, the LP shot to the top of the R&B charts, their second of four number one records in a row. It was a perfect tonic to the mediocre MOR music rampaging its way through the early part of the decade...A magical ride with plenty of surprises to keep the listener on his or her toes, this set is a perfect example of the band at their genre-fusing best."

Eric Clapton
461 Ocean Boulevard

  (Item #: clapt461oc_1902) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • A killer UK copy with an amazing Triple Plus (A+++) side two and an excellent Double Plus (A++) side one - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Big and full-bodied with wonderfully breathy vocals, strong rhythmic energy and virtually none of the smear that plagues so many copies
  • As good as the best domestic pressings can be, these British LPs simply capture more of the 461 midrange magic than they do
  • "...the pop concessions on the album don't detract from the rootsy origins of the material, whether it's Johnny Otis' "Willie and the Hand Jive," the traditional blues "Motherless Children," Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff," or Clapton's emotional original "Let It Grow." "

Diana Ross and the Supremes
Let The Sunshine In

  (Item #: supreletth_1902) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • A stunning copy of this exceptionally well recorded album - it earned Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades or very close to them on both sides
  • We would love to do more Supremes records, but we've had a devilishly hard time finding copies of their earlier albums that sound as big, rich and smooth as this one does
  • Unusually quiet vinyl throughout - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • "The album is still solid listening 40-plus years later, with three hit singles present to help drive sales. Ross is in excellent form throughout, and the arrangements reach for the lush side of soul, which would become her trademark as a solo artist."

Strange Days

  (Item #: doorsstran_1902) 

Our Price: $499.99

  • This phenomenal copy of Strange Days has Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on the second side and Double Plus (A++) sound on the first
  • A stunning sounding pressing of one of the most difficult-to-find records in the world of Hot Stampers
  • Demo Quality sound for so many classics: When The Music's Over, Moonlight Drive, Love Me Two Times and more
  • ... if The Beatles had Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club and The Beach Boys had Pet Sounds, then The Doors' answer was Strange Days. This experimentation can be heard in the very first notes of the title track, as Ray Manzarek's spacey keyboards set the tone for Morrison's eerie, distorted warning, "Strange days have found us." It's the perfect introduction to a perfectly strange album."
