Stevie Wonder
Innervisions

  (Item #: wondeinner_1901_issues) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • With two outstanding Double Plus (A++) sides, this was one of the better copies we played in our recent shootout - not the quietest copy we have ever heard though
  • This Stevie Wonder classic is one of the funkiest discs money can buy, but you will need a copy like this one to prove it
  • Absolutely critical to the sound is richness, warmth, Tubey Magic, and clarity, and here you will find a healthy dose of all four
  • "Stevie Wonder applied his tremendous songwriting talents to the unsettled social morass that was the early '70s and produced one of his greatest, most important works, a rich panoply of songs addressing drugs, spirituality, political ethics, and what looked to be the failure of the '60s dream -- all set within a collection of charts as funky and catchy as any he'd written before."

Reworking glam rock themes with avant-garde synth flourishes, and reversing the process as well, Bowie creates dense but accessible music throughout Scary Monsters."

Blowing away the fuzzy, sonic indulgences of October with propulsive, martial rhythms and shards of guitar, War bristles with anger, despair, and above all, passion... U2 always aimed at greatness, but War was the first time they achieved it."

  • Easily one of the toughest Genesis albums to find with good sound and clean surfaces, but this one delivers
  • 5 stars: "Foxtrot is where Genesis began to pull all of its varied inspirations into a cohesive sound -- which doesn't necessarily mean that the album is streamlined, for this is a group that always was grandiose even when they were cohesive, or even when they rocked, which they truly do for the first time here. This is the rare art-rock album that excels at both the art and the rock, and it's a pinnacle of the genre (and decade) because of it."

Van Morrison
Moondance

  (Item #: morrimoond_1901_1) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • Stunning sound for this 2-pack of early Green Label pressings with a Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) side two and a Double Plus (A++) side one - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Drop the needle anywhere for a taste of early-'70s Tubey Magical analog sound, not to mention some of the best blue-eyed soul ever committed to vinyl
  • "An album worthy of an Irish r&b singer who wrote a teen hit called "Mystic Eyes" (not to mention a Brill Building smash called "Brown Eyed Girl"), adding punchy brass (including pennywhistles and foghorn) and a solid backbeat (including congas) to his folk-jazz swing, and a pop-wise formal control to his Gaelic poetry." Christgau - A+ (a grade he does not give out often)

Led Zeppelin
In Through The Out Door

  (Item #: ledzeinthr_1901) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this was one of the better copies we played in our recent shootout - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • It's all here: huge amounts of rock solid bass; grungy guitars; breathy, natural vocals and jump out of the speakers presence and energy
  • Fool In The Rain and All My Love are two of the best, and best sounding, tracks on the album
  • "The album's opening number, "In the Evening," with its stomping rhythms and heavy, staggered riffs, suggests that Zeppelin haven't deviated from their course, but by the time the rolling shuffle of "South Bound Suarez" kicks into gear, it's apparent that they've regained their sense of humor."

War
Why Can't We Be Friends?

  (Item #: war__whyca_1809_1901) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb sounding copy with Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides and vinyl that's about as quiet as any we can find (which does not mean quiet because no copy of this record ever is)
  • One of our favorite albums here at Better Records and clearly the band's Masterpiece - the bass and dynamics on the better pressings make this a Demo Disc on the right system
  • 4 Stars [but we give it 5]: "Cut from the same cloth as the band's 1973 Deliver the Word LP, War's 1975 Why Can't We Be Friends? is a masterpiece in its scope and breadth. [It] remains one of War's truly outstanding efforts, and has become an integral part of the funk genre's landscape. It also remains the nightcap of their finest hour."

Our Price: $249.99

  • Superb sound throughout with both sides earning a Double Plus (A++) or BETTER
  • Engineer/Producer Hugh Padgham once again achieved his trademark sound in the studio - Spacious, Lively and Powerful
  • Exceptionally quiet vinyl throughout - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - not many survived to play as nicely as this one does
  • 4 1/2 stars: "... his best solo record. In places, it's easily as pretentious as his earlier work, but that's undercut by writing that hasn't been this sharp and melodic since the Police, plus his most varied set of songs since Synchronicity... as an album, Ten Summoner's Tales is more consistently satisfying than anything else in his catalog."
