  • "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

  • Folk Singer is an exceptional live-in-the-studio recording, with some of the best sound Muddy Waters ever managed
  • This '80s reissue is guaranteed to trounce any heavy vinyl pressing you've heard of it or we'll give you your money back!
  • 4 1/2 Stars: "Muddy's "unplugged" album was cut in September of 1963 and still sounds fresh and vital today. It was Muddy simply returning to his original style on a plain acoustic guitar in a well-tuned room..."

Jethro Tull
Stand Up

  (Item #: jethrstand_1807_1810) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • You'll find solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last on this outstanding UK Island pressing
  • This Jethro Tull Classic is a tough record to come by with this kind of sound and vinyl that plays so quietly
  • Tull's 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."
