  • You'll find wonderful sound on both sides of this exceptionally quiet Philips recording - rich, sweet and musical
  • Side one earned a seriously good grade of Double Plus (A++) and side two was close behind it
  • Yes, it was still possible to record classical music properly in 1980, though few labels managed to do it

The Eagles
The Long Run

  (Item #: eaglelongr_1801s) 

Our Price: $149.99
Sale Price: $99.00 (You save $50.99 / 34%)


  • This copy has a rockin' Long Run like you have never heard, with Double Plus (A++) sound all around
  • The sound is full, rich and vibrant with impressive punch down low and relatively smooth up top
  • The best songs prove that the Eagles were still at the height of their powers in 1979
  • "Overall, The Long Run is a synthesis of previous macabre Eagles motifs, with cynical new insights that are underlined by slashing rock & roll. There's a stark simplicity to the album, especially when compared with the hyperslick Hotel California. Not a collection of hot car-radio singles. The Long Run is easily the band's most uncommercial effort." Rolling Stone

The best track, a revelation when it appeared on this album, is "Misty," a treatment of Erroll Garner's jazz piano classic with a newly added lyric by Johnny Burke."

Art Pepper
Living Legend

  (Item #: peppelivin_1710x) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With a nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) side two and a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side one, this copy will be very hard to beat
  • His classic return to the recording studio in 1975, boasting his usual top quality sound, and the vinyl is fairly quiet too
  • The lineup on this LP is stellar, with Hampton Hawes on piano and keys, Shelly Manne on drums, and the great Charlie Haden on bass.
  • "Polish is for shoes and fingernails: by the late '70s Pepper was rough, raw, and nakedly vulnerable. Every solo this late in his career was an adventure." AMG

ZZ Top
Eliminator

  (Item #: zztopelimi_1712x) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • Stunning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on the second side and Double Plus (A++) on the first, on reasonably quiet vinyl too
  • The sound is incredibly big, lively and punchy, just what songs like Gimme All Your Lovin, Sharp Dressed Man and Legs need
  • Only a handful of these have ever hit the site - finding copies that sound as good as this one does is not easy to say the least
  • 4 1/2 stars: "With "Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man," and "Legs," they had their greatest set of singles since the heady days of Tres Hombres, and the songs that surrounded them weren't bad either -- they would have been singles on El Loco, as a matter of fact... ZZ Top never sounded as much like a band of its time as they did here."

Neil Young
Neil Young

  (Item #: youngneily_1712x) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • Amazing sound throughout - Triple Plus (A+++) on the second side and Double Plus (A++) on the first
  • Both sides are super clean, clear and transparent with a big bottom end and excellent resolution
  • Surely one of Neil's toughest to find with top quality sound and quiet vinyl but we did it here!
  • "...a flowing tributary from the over-all Springfield river of twangs, breathless vocals and slim yet stout instrumentation. Especially vivid is Young's sense of melancholy and the ingenious clusters of images he employs in his lyrics (printed in full)."

  • Triple Plus (A+++) on side one and almost as impressive on side two, this is as good a copy of Tougher Than Leather as can be found

Our Price: $199.99
Sale Price: $149.00 (You save $50.99 / 25%)

  • 4 stars: "...one reason Changes... is his best record yet is simply the sound... The main reason it's Buffett's best is the songs, most of which he wrote. Buffett has always been a good songwriter when he had the time to apply himself, and he's been developing a persona that reaches its culmination here."

Our Price: $249.99

  • Amazing "Triple Triple" sound from start to finish with both sides earning our top A+++ grade

Peter Gabriel
Peter Gabriel (1)

  (Item #: gabrigabr1_1803) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This British pressing earned very respectable Hot Stamper grades on both sides
  • Gabriel's solo debut, the album features his autobiographical lead single, Solsbury Hill
  • Clearly the hardest of the first five PG records to find with good sound and decent vinyl, which is why these seldom make the site
  • "...much of the record teems with invigorating energy (as on Slowburn, or the orchestral-disco pulse of Down the Dolce Vita), and the closer "Here Comes the Flood" burns with an anthemic intensity that would later become his signature in the '80s."

Pink Floyd
The Wall

  (Item #: pinkfthewa_1803) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With very good Hot Stamper sound on all four sides, this is a great way to hear The Wall
  • Too many songs with Demo Quality sound to mention, but the children's chorus in Another Brick..., Pt. 1 is always fun
  • James Guthrie labored mightily to make this one as big, bold and immersive as any Prog Rock recording we know of - and succeeded brilliantly
  • 4 1/2 stars in the AMG, and proof that analog in 1979 could still be amazing, hence its status as a Top 100 Title
