The Allman Brothers
The Allman Brothers

  (Item #: allmaallma_1812_6_9) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • An excellent copy with seriously good Double Plus (A++) grades or close to them
  • Forget whatever dead-as-a-doornail Heavy Vinyl record they're making these days - if you want to hear the Tubey Magic, size and energy of this wonderful album, a vintage pressing like this one is the way to go
  • Exceptionally quiet vinyl - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout, and that's as quiet as they come
  • 4 1/2 stars: "This might be the best debut album ever delivered by an American blues band, a bold, powerful, hard-edged, soulful essay in electric blues with a native Southern ambience. There isn't a bad song here, and only the fact that the group did even better the next time out keeps this from getting the highest possible rating."

Our Price: $349.99

  • Triple Triple! A stunning copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish- this is As Good As It Gets, folks!
  • Check out the clear transients on Joni's guitar -- you can really hear her moving her hands around the fretboard and pulling on the strings
  • It's tough to find this album in clean shape with this kind of warm, natural sound (something the new reissue is no doubt profoundly lacking)
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Clouds is a stark stunner, a great leap forward for Joni Mitchell. Vocals here are more forthright and assured than on her debut and exhibit a remarkable level of subtle expressiveness. Guitar alone is used in accompaniment, and the variety of playing approaches and sounds gotten here is most impressive."

The Doors
The Soft Parade

  (Item #: doorssoftp_1905) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • With seriously good Double Plus (A++) grades on both sides, this copy will be very hard to beat
  • The sound is rich and lively, with solid brass and punchy drums - thanks Bruce Botnick, where would The Doors be without you?
  • Full of great songs: Touch Me, Runnin' Blue, Wild Child, Wishful Sinful and the amazingly trippy Soft Parade extended 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!

At San Quentin

  (Item #: cash_atsan_1711_1904-) 

Our Price: $59.99

  • A vintage 360 pressing of a legendary live album, this copy earned very good Hot Stamper grades on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too

  • So many great songs: Wanted Man, I Walk the Line, San Quentin, A Boy Named Sue, Folsom Prison Blues and more
  • 5 stars: "...listen to 'A Boy Named Sue,' ... rescued by the wild-eyed, committed performance by Cash, where it sounds like he really was set on murdering that son of a bitch who named him Sue. He sounds that way throughout the record... "

  • Surprisingly dynamic, with great energy, this copy brought BB King's music to life right in our listening room
  • Phenominal sound, with the Tubes and Big Bass this music needs to work its Electric Blues Magic from The Master himself

Renaissance
Renaissance

  (Item #: renairenai_1705_1903) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A killer copy and the first to hit the site in three years - Double Plus (A++) or better on both sides
  • This is an outstanding recording. And why shouldn't it be? It's engineered by Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin II and many more)
  • "The original group's debut album was a then-groundbreaking meld of progressive rock with classical and jazz influences... [it's] far druggier than the later group in its ambience (cofounders Keith Relf and Jim McCarty were the heavily psychedelic half of the final lineup of the Yardbirds, which made them anathema to Jimmy Page), but vocalist Jane Relf had a striking individual style, and the classical influence was unique for its time."
