Stealers Wheel
Stealers Wheel

  (Item #: stealsteal_1803x) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • This early British pressing has two outstanding Tubey Magical sides, each rating a Double Plus (A++) for sound
  • Take it from us: the real British-pressed vinyl from the real master tape makes all the difference in the world
  • Pretty darn quiet throughout - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - they don't come quieter (and most copies are more-often-than-not a whole lot noisier)
  • 4 Stars: "Ultimately, this very solid outing casts a somber shadow because of unfulfilled expectations. And any record this carefully crafted doesn't deserve to languish in the bins of obscurity..."

  • This pressing is cleaner, clearer, richer, sweeter, and more present than you could have imagined in your wildest dreams
  • There is a mark that plays at the beginning of side two, so we are discounting this one accordingly
  • "... [I]n 1969 this was envelope-ripping, genre-busting music, scaling established boundaries into unknown territory, not only "outside the box" but outside of any musical box that had been conceived at that moment..." -- Allmusic, 4 1/2 stars

Peter Gabriel
Peter Gabriel (1)

  (Item #: gabrigabr1_1801x) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • A stunning sounding copy with shootout winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish
  • Killer throughout - bigger, bolder, more bass, more energy and presence, and the list goes on
  • Clearly the hardest of the first five PG records to find with good sound and decent vinyl, which is why these rarely 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."
