Roy Orbison
The All-Time Greatest Hits of Roy Orbison

  (Item #: orbisallti_2004_6) 

Our Price: $349.99

  • Stunning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it on ALL FOUR SIDES -- you've never heard Roy Orbison sound better than he does here
  • Rich, smooth, sweet, full of ambience, dead on correct tonality - everything that we listen for in a great record is here
  • The phenomenally talented Bill Porter recorded many of Orbison's classic songs from the early '60s that are found on this compilation
  • 4 1/2 stars: "... no one conveys pain and longing more sublimely or succinctly than Roy Orbison. But his songs are also masterpieces of production: so technically precise that his deceptively simple tunes and lush melodies flow even more smoothly behind his desperate baritone croon and quivering falsetto."

  • 4 stars: "Free for All is a high point in drummer Art Blakey's enormous catalog. This edition of the Jazz Messengers had been together since 1961 with a lineup that would be hard to beat: Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor sax, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Cedar Walton on piano, and Reggie Workman on bass."

  • "One of the high watermarks of political songwriting in any musical genre. These are beautifully crafted, tightly focused mini-masterpieces. And they have a radical edge, a political toughness, that one rarely finds in the folk music of the period. Abstract paeans to peace and brotherhood were not for Dylan; the songs are uncompromising in their anger and unsparing in their analysis."

  • Columbia records produced by Teo Macero in the early '60s have consistently open, natural sound - this one from 1964 is no exception
  • The piano has real weight, the bass definition is wonderful, Rouse's sax is full-bodied, and the overall sound is Columbia to a "T": warm, sweet, and rich
  • The Thelonious Monk Quartet of 1964 is well featured on this excellent set... Easily recommended to Monk fans, this set is just further proof that he never made an unworthy recording."

Softly, As I Leave You

  (Item #: sinatsoftl_1907_12)

  • With Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it from start to finish, this original stereo pressing blew away practically every copy in our shootout

The Beatles
A Hard Day’s Night

  (Item #: beatlahard_1912_1) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound on both sides, this vintage UK Hard Day's Night is guaranteed to beat anything you have ever played - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • This one gets the heart of the music right - the lad's voices - and that's what makes The Beatles FUN to listen to
  • 5 stars: "All of the disparate influences on their first two albums had coalesced into a bright, joyous, original sound, filled with ringing guitars and irresistible melodies. A Hard Day's Night is where the Beatles became mythical, but this is the sound of Beatlemania in all of its giddy glory. Decades after its original release, its punchy blend of propulsive rhythms, jangly guitars, and infectious, singalong melodies is remarkably fresh."

  • The phenomenally talented Bill Porter recorded many of Orbison's classic songs from the early '60s that are found on this compilation
  • 4 1/2 stars: "... no one conveys pain and longing more sublimely or succinctly than Roy Orbison. But his songs are also masterpieces of production: so technically precise that his deceptively simple tunes and lush melodies flow even more smoothly behind his desperate baritone croon and quivering falsetto."

  • 5 stars: "Another Side of Bob Dylan is a more varied record and it's more successful, too, since it captures Dylan expanding his music, turning in imaginative, poetic performances on love songs and protest tunes alike. The result is one of his very best records, a lovely intimate affair."

  • Both sides of this vintage Black Print 360 pressing earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades for their superb sound - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Everything that's good about All Tube Vocal Recordings from the '50s and '60s is precisely what's good about the sound of this record
  • "The moods vary from a wild Caravan, introduced with a drum solo by Chico Hamilton joined by flute and bass and seemingly held together by Tony's voice alone, to Don Costa's almost cinematic big orchestra styling of Spring in Manhattan as well as the lightly melancholy moods of When Joanna Loved Me and Don't Wait Too Long. Throughout the album, Tony's effortlessly soaring voice gives meaning to every number."
