  • You get richness, fullness and warmth on both of these sides, which is exactly what you want for the Moodies' music
  • "It is the fourth of what are popularly considered the group's "core seven" (or Classic Seven) albums from 1967 to 1972, and as such represents the peak of their career to some."
  • "There are no extended suites on this album, but Justin Hayward's "Watching and Waiting" and "Gypsy" have proved to be among the most popular songs in the group's history."

Joan Baez
Farewell, Angelina

  (Item #: baez_farew_1804_1) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • An excellent copy with Double Plus (A++) sound from the first note to the last
  • The overall sound here is super clean, clear and present with lovely breathy vocals
  • A lovely recording - just listen to "Pauvre Ruteboeuf" on Side 2 to hear Joan at her best
  • "To be sure, her sixth album is top-heavy with Bob Dylan songs, including the title track, which he never officially recorded... But rather than relying on the Dylan repertory to sell the album, she made Farewell, Angelina worthwhile all the way through." -- Allmusic

Our Price: $249.99
Sale Price: $199.00 (You save $50.99 / 20%)


  • With seriously good Double Plus (A++) grades on both sides and exceptionally quiet vinyl, this copy will be hard to beat
  • The sound is rich, lively and dynamic with solid brass and punchy drums - thanks, Bruce Botnick!
  • Full of great songs including Touch Me, Runnin' Blue, Wild Child and the amazingly trippy extended Soft Parade suite
  • "Much like a true “parade” of an English fugue, the song morphs from Morrison’s a capella sermon-like intro to a Baroque ballad to a show tune-like section to the long rock outro, the music masterfully following the flowing, stream of consciousness lyric." Hell yeah!

Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited

  (Item #: dylanhighw_1804_4) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • This 360 Label stereo copy boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - and it's QUIET
  • Clean stereo pressings of this album are ridiculously hard to come by these days, not to mention that few copies will sound as good as this one does
  • In the same way that Sgt. Pepper changed music a mere two years later, Highway 61 Revisited left all of Dylan's contemporaries behind, scrambling to keep up with the standard it set
  • "Dylan had not only changed his sound, but his persona, trading the folk troubadour for a streetwise, cynical hipster ... it proved that rock & roll needn't be collegiate and tame in order to be literate, poetic, and complex." - 5 Stars

Ella and Basie!

  (Item #: fitzgellaandbasie_1804) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • With excellent Double Plus (A++) sound throughout, this was one of the better copies from our most recent shootout
  • It's very difficult to get the vocals AND the brass to sound right on the same copy, but these two sides pulled it off
  • About as quiet as they come -- Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • 4 1/2 Stars: "Surprisingly enough this 1963 LP was the first time (other than a couple songs) that Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie recorded together. The match-up was so logical that it would be repeated many times over the next 20 years."

  • Probably the best-recorded of Hendrix's studio albums - huge amounts of studio space and plenty of Tubey Magical richness are key to the best copies
  • 5 stars: "Jimi Hendrix's third and final album with the original Experience found him taking his funk and psychedelic sounds to the absolute limit. The result was not only one of the best rock albums of the era, but also Hendrix's original musical vision at its absolute apex."

  (Item #: jethrstand_1804) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • This awesome Pink Label LP has a nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) side one mated to a Double Plus (A++) side two
  • This Jethro Tull Classic is a tough record to come by with this kind of sound and vinyl that plays so quietly
  • These sides give you richness, Tubey Magic, clarity and resolution few copies can touch
  • Their best album? It gets my vote, and this copy will really make the case if you turn it up good and loud
  • "Stand Up! has great textural interest, due, in part, to a more sophisticated recording technique, in part to the organ, mandolin, balalaika, etc., which Anderson plays to enrich each song. The band is able to work with different musical styles, but without a trace of the facile, glib manipulation which strains for attention.
