Sale Price: $74.99 (You save $25.00 / 25%)

  • This vintage pressing has the richness, clarity and British Blues Rock Energy that was missing from many of the copies we played, which of course explains why it earned such good grades
  • "The first and last Clapton studio album to feature his all-British band of the early '80s, it gave considerable prominence to second guitarist Albert Lee and especially to keyboard player/singer Gary Brooker (formerly leader of Procol Harum), and they gave it more of a blues-rock feel than the country-funk brewed up by the Tulsa shuffle crew Clapton had used throughout the 1970s."

  • 4 1/2 stars: "Clapton is embracing his middle age and the pleasure of Unplugged is to hear him opt out of the pop star game as he plays songs he's always loved."

  • Presenting yet another amazingly well recorded Count Basie album, with superb Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Rich, smooth and Tubey Magical, this pressing has a lovely musical quality that's missing from some of the copies we played
  • A different sound for Basie, a small group setting with two of his favorite players at his side: Milt Jackson on vibes and Joe Pass on guitar
  • "The predictably excellent group performs spirited versions of some of Basie's "hits" (including "Jive at Five" and "One O'Clock Jump"), some blues and a few standards. It is always interesting to hear Basie in a hornless setting like this one where he gets opportunities to stretch out on the piano."

Frank Sinatra
The Concert Sinatra

  (Item #: sinatconce_2001_1) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • Presenting a superb original stereo pressing which earned Double Plus (A++) sonic grades on both sides and plays fairly quietly for a record of its age (57 or thereabouts)
  • This album ranks right up there with the best of the Reprise era - recorded in 1963, Sinatra was still in his prime, and Nelson Riddle's arrangements beautifully support Sinatra's emotional readings of these Classics of the Great American Songbook
  • "Sinatra is given the opportunity to demonstrate his full emotional range, from the melodrama of "Ol' Man River" to the tender romanticisim of "Bewitched," which helps make The Concert Sinatra one of his most fulfilling albums of the era."

  (Item #: rolliafter_1909_01) 

Our Price: $129.99
Sale Price: $99.99 (You save $30.00 / 23%)


  • Both sides of this copy are outstanding, earning Double Plus (A++) grades for their Tubey Magical '60s British sound - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Lady Jane, Under My Thumb and Mother's Little Helper are three of the best sounding tracks on side one - all are lively and solid here
  • 5 stars: "... the group began incorporating the influences of psychedelia and Dylan into their material with classics like "Paint It Black," an eerily insistent number one hit graced by some of the best use of sitar (played by Brian Jones) on a rock record. Other classics included the jazzy "Under My Thumb," where Jones added exotic accents with his vibes, and the delicate Elizabethan ballad "Lady Jane," where dulcimer can be heard..."

  (Item #: fleetpeter_1901_6_01) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this UK pressing was one of the best we played in our recent shootout - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Fleetwood Mac is by far our favorite British Blues band - these intensely heartfelt performances put even the most popular Blues groups' running around England in 1968 to shame
  • Forget whatever Heavy Vinyl imposter is in print - this vintage UK pressing has the kind of Tubey Magical Midrange that those modern LPs barely BEGIN to reproduce
  • 4 1/2 star: "Fleetwood Mac's debut LP was a highlight of the late-'60s British blues boom. Green's always inspired playing, the capable (if erratic) songwriting, and the general panache of the band as a whole placed them leagues above the overcrowded field..."

These Are The Blues

  (Item #: fitzgthese_1902_6_01) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • A superb early Stereo copy with Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it from start to finish
  • Only the best vintage vinyl pressings like this one offer the kind of Tubey Magic that was on the tapes in 1963
  • Allmusic Users 4 1/2 stars: "Ella Fitzgerald was never thought of as a blues singer but she does a surprisingly effective job on the ten blues songs here, including "See See Rider," "Trouble in Mind," "St. Louis Blues," and Bessie Smith's "Jailhouse Blues." She somehow sings more or less in the style of the classic blues vocalists of the 1920s and largely pulls it off. ...organist Wild Bill Davis (with assistance from guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Gus Johnson) dominate the ensembles. It's an interesting set."

  (Item #: davismilestones_1903_6_8_01ex) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • This original Columbia Mono Six-Eye pressing has STUNNING Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish
  • This one has some condition issues (see below), so we're discounting it accordingly
  • The All Tube recording chain at their 30th Street studios allowed Columbia's engineers to do some amazing work back then - here's the proof
  • 5 stars: "What is immedately noticeable upon listening to Miles Davis' classic first -- and only -- album with his original sextet is how deep the blues presence is on it. Though it's true that the album's title cut is rightfully credited with introducing modalism into jazz, and defining Davis' music for years to come, it is the sole selection of its kind on the record. The rest is all blues in any flavor you wish you call your own."
