Our Price: $249.99

  • An insanely good sounding with both sides earning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades or very close to them - one of the best copies to hit the site in years

  • "After delving into more "serious" music with the Dylan album, the Hollies return to their pop roots with this fine effort... as usual, there is inconsistency in the quality of songwriting. However, even the most inconsequential tunes boast a good melody and solid musicianship... this is a good effort that maintains a balance between lightweight and serious pop material."

  • Features Down On The Corner, Fortunate Son, Midnight Special and more
  • 5 stars: "[A] fun record, perhaps the breeziest album CCR ever made. Fogerty's rage remains, blazing to the forefront on "Fortunate Son," a working-class protest song that cuts harder than any of the explicit Vietnam protest songs of the era, one of the reasons that it hasn't aged where its peers have. Also, there's that unbridled vocal from Fogerty and the ferocious playing on CCR..."

  (Item #: mitchcloud_2004) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • With a Triple Plus (A+++) shootout winning side one and a better than Double Plus (A++ to A+++) side two, this copy took top honors in our most recent shootout
  • 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."

  • 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!

One of the differences between the two albums is that Green River is tighter, with none of the five-minute-plus jams that filled out both their debut and Bayou Country, but the true key to its success is a peak in John Fogerty's creativity."

  • 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."
