Hot Stamper

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
4 Way Street

  (Item #: crosb4ways_1803) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Four Hot Stamper sides mean that Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young are really rockin' on this copy
  • It's not easy to find good sound on even one side of this album, let alone all four!
  • Bill Halverson did a great job but you have to work your tail off to find a copy that does his brilliant engineering justice. Sad, isn't it?
  • Rolling Stone raves that "Crosby, Stills. Nash, and Young are all performers of unquestionable talent, and mostly because they stay out of each other's way, 4 Way Street must surely be their best album to date."

  • An outstanding Contemporary stereo pressing boasting Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides and fairly quiet vinyl
  • This is a classic from Pepper - all the songs were written by saxophonists and he tears into them with gusto and naked emotion (the two hallmarks of his playing style)
  • One of the best Contemporary titles for sound quality - as usual you can thank the brilliant engineering of Roy DuNann
  • "Pepper is very much on top of his game throughout, ably demonstrating a capacity for precision and intimidating passion." - All Music

Jimi Hendrix
Electric Ladyland
