  • This outstanding vintage stereo copy boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound, or close to it, from start to finish

  • 5 stars: "It closes out the most productive and significant chapter of his career, and one of the most fertile, inventive hot streaks of any composer in jazz history."

Albert King
Live Wire - Blues Power

  (Item #: king_livew_1812_1903) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • An insanely good copy of this Must Own Live Blues album, with Triple Plus (A++) sound throughout
  • Accept no substitutes - no reissue of the album can ever give you the energy, size and you-are-there presence that's on this disc
  • Finding originals with top quality sound and surfaces this quiet is quite a feat, but here one is - it plays Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • "Live Wire/Blues Power is one of Albert King's definitive albums. Recorded live at the Fillmore Auditorium in 1968, the guitarist is at the top of his form throughout the record — his solos are intense and piercing... he makes Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" dirty and funky and wrings out all the emotion from "Blues at Sunrise.""

  (Item #: smithhobof_1806_1902) 

Our Price: $199.99
Sale Price: $149.00 (You save $50.99 / 25%)


  • Incredible Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound from the first note to the last
  • Both sides are wonderfully big, rich and LIVELY, with boatloads of Tubey Magic and the kind of three-dimensional space that's a hallmark of Bob Simpson's engineering
  • "Smith bubbles and bounces through all of it at the B-3 while Nelson proceeds to fill every available corner with huge, sweeping orchestral washes and crescendos. The clear highlight, though, is the lead and title track, "Hobo Flats," which moves at a languid but wonderfully funky pace and establishes a groove as wide as the Mississippi River."

  (Item #: rolliwhatsn_1812_1902) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • Two superb sides with each rating a seriously good Double Plus (A++) grade for sound
  • This is vintage 1962 Living Stereo sound at its best - big, rich, relaxed, tonally correct and full of Tubey Magic - thanks Ray Hall!
  • Damn quiet for a Black Label stereo original - it plays Mint Minus Minus and has no audible marks of any kind
  • 4 1/2 Stars: "Rollins' characteristically huge tone, relentless harmonic and rhythmic inventiveness, and fierce solos were consistently impressive. Not only did he state the melody clearly and superbly, but his ideas and pacing were remarkable; no solo rambled and his phrases were lean, thick and furious."

Jethro Tull
Stand Up

  (Item #: jethrstand_1902_1) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • With a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side two and a side one that's right up there with it, this copy has much to recommend it
  • 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 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."

Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd
Jazz Samba

  (Item #: getz_jazz_samba_1810_1902) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A wonderful vintage stereo copy of this Bossa Nova classic - both sides rate a Double Plus (A++) or close to it for their outstanding sonics
  • The 1962 sound here is clear, open and highly resolving, yet still rich, warm and smooth - thanks to the brilliant engineering of Ed Greene
  • We rarely see surfaces this nice - clean copies that play as quietly as this LP are nearly impossible to find nowadays
  • 5 Stars: "Jazz Samba stands on its own artistic merit as a shimmering, graceful collection that's as subtly advanced - in harmony and rhythm - as it is beautiful. Getz and guitarist Charlie Byrd - who was actually responsible for bringing bossa nova to the U.S. and introducing Getz to the style - have the perfect touch for bossa nova's delicate, airy texture."

  • Grant Green on guitar and killer horn men (Hank Mobley on tenor, Grachan Moncur III on trombone, and Donald Byrd on trumpet) make this a special date indeed
  • About as quiet a copy as you will ever find- this one plays Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • "Hot on the heels of his debut album Takin’ Off Hancock piled on the punishment with another must-have recording, My Point of View. He assembled an astonishing septet for the sessions [which] gave him three brass voices to play with, the contrasting luminous flow of Grant Green, with free-swinging Anthony Williams and Chuck Israels at the anchor."

  (Item #: beatlwitht_1811_1902) 

Our Price: $39.99

  • Hot Stamper sound on both sides - guaranteed to beat any Heavy Vinyl or Half-Speed Mastered pressing you may have
  • Looking for the best sound? Try Till There Was You on side one and You Really Got A Hold On Me on the flipside
  • So many great songs: All My Loving, Roll over Beethoven, Money (That's What I Want), Devil In Her Heart...
  • "A sequel of the highest order - one that betters the original by developing its own tone and adding depth. While it may share several similarities with its predecessor - there is an equal ratio of covers-to-originals, a familiar blend of girl group, Motown, R&B, pop, and rock... With the Beatles is a better record that not only rocks harder, it's considerably more sophisticated...
