Joni Mitchell
Miles of Aisles

  (Item #: mitchmiles_1911_4) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This Joni Mitchell classic boasts STUNNING Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it on all four sides
  • Henry Lewy brings the analog richness, smoothness and clarity he achieved on Court and Spark to the recording - it's some of the best live sound we've ever heard
  • Joni reworks some of her best-loved songs for this concert, with five tracks from Blue alone (!), and the new arrangements show us just how vital her early '70s work has turned out to be
  • "It's a strong album of her best songs performed mostly informally... Much of the material here is beautiful, replete with the patented Mitchell tension. And a word for engineer Henry Lewy—the sound is terrific, the best reproduced concert album I've heard." Rolling Stone

  • 4 1/2 stars: "His brand of homespun tunes were perfectly matched to his emotive and soaring tenor... The acoustic and optimistic "Sunshine" struck a chord with listeners in the fall of 1971, climbing all the way to a lofty number four on the Pop Singles survey..."

  (Item #: santamoonf_2004ex) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb copy of Santana's 1977 double album with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound from start to finish - just shy of our Shootout Winner
  • The big hit is She's Not There, which Santana reimagines brilliantly - that approach is the one the band takes to their own material here too (Black Magic Woman, Soul Sacrifice), and the "new" versions of their older classics clearly make Moonflower worth owning
  • "Santana, which was renowned for its concert work dating back to Woodstock, did not release a live album in the U.S. until this one... Moonflower went Top Ten and sold a million copies, the first new Santana album to do that since 1972 and the last until Supernatural in 1999."

King Curtis & Champion Jack Dupree
Blues at Montreux

  (Item #: curtiblues_2004) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Outstanding sound throughout for this original Atlantic LP with both sides earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Here's the midrange magic that’s surely missing from whatever 180g reissue has been made from the tapes (or, to be clear, a modern digital master copied from who-knows-what-tapes)
  • "... Curtis and Dupree find a great deal of common musical ground. Dupree has quite a few witty vocals (particularly the near-classic "Junker's Blues") while taking choruses of irregular length that keep his sidemen continually guessing. Curtis' distinctive tenor is also heard from, making one truly regret that this was his final recording."

  • One of the few Bob Seger recordings capable of audiophile quality sound - this pressing is big, full and Tubey Magical (for 1978) with plenty of rock and roll energy
  • If you own a radio you know Stranger In Town - more than half of it still gets played on the radio to this day
  • 4 1/2 stars: "...it's as lively as Night Moves, rocking even harder in some places and being equally as introspective in the acoustic numbers. If it doesn't feel as revelatory as that record, in many ways it does feel like a stronger set of songs."

Our Price: $129.99

  • You'll find Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound on both sides of this superb copy of Stevie Wonder's classic 1974 album - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Finding the right balance between Tubey Magical Richness and Transparency is the trick, and we think this copy strikes that balance well
  • Boogie On Reggae Woman and You Haven't Done Nothing were the big hits but the other tracks on the album are where the real Stevie Wonder MAGIC can be found
  • 4 1/2 stars [but we give it 5]: "...Stevie positively caresses his vocals on this set, encompassing the vagaries of love, from dreaming of it ("Creepin'") to being bashful of it ("Too Shy to Say") to knowing when it's over ("It Ain't No Use")."

The percussion, the horns, the guitar solos, the vocals. Everything just sounds so right in a low-key but effective way. All the parts fit together perfectly. ...Energy, passion and emotion flow through this album; B. B. King and company make it all sound effortless."

  • Richness, warmth, Tubey Magic, and clarity are important to the sound, and here you will find plenty of all four
  • "Stevie Wonder applied his tremendous songwriting talents to the unsettled social morass that was the early '70s and produced one of his greatest, most important works, a rich panoply of songs addressing drugs, spirituality, political ethics, and what looked to be the failure of the '60s dream -- all set within a collection of charts as funky and catchy as any he'd written before."

  • The mix of these two legendary voices - Ross' dulcet tone and Gaye's signature soulfulness - is nothing short of sensational
  • 4 stars: "What they shared, apart from a mutual admiration, was that they were two of the biggest artists on Motown and that their voices sounded terrific together. Although the album didn't produce any timeless classics, the results were still very good … even the weaker tunes are redeemed by the duo's indelible chemistry..."

  • Insanely good sound throughout this early UK pressing with each side rating a Triple Plus (A+++) or very close to it - quiet vinyl too
  • These sides were bigger, richer and livelier, with more bass, energy and Tubey Magic than the other copies we played (which is why this copy won the shootout)
  • Even the best domestic pressings always sounded dubby to us - we gave up playing them years ago
  • 5 stars: "The Slider essentially replicates all the virtues of Electric Warrior, crammed with effortless hooks and trashy fun. All of Bolan's signatures are here - mystical folk-tinged ballads, overt sexual come-ons crooned over sleazy, bopping boogies, loopy nonsense poetry, and a mastery of the three-minute pop song form."

  • Both of these sides are out of this world -- big, full-bodied, clean and clear with tons of energy and a huge bottom end
  • Man, this is one tough nut to crack-- gritty vocals, thin vocals, recessed vocals, smeary vocals -- this music is all about the vocals and the vocals are pretty bad most of the time
  • This copy gets the duo's voices to be clear and present, breathy and natural like you have never heard before

  • Ranked number 443 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 greatest albums of all time
  • 4 1/2 stars: "From the druggy psychedelia of "Downed" and the bubblegum singalong "I Want You to Want Me", the album has the same encyclopedic knowledge of rock & roll, as well as the good sense to subvert it with a perverse sense of humor."

  • This copy had the sound we were looking for on a McCartney record from this era - the size, the weight, the energy, the vocal presence, they're all here
  • "Red Rose Speedway winds up being a really strange record... [it's] every bit as insular as the lo-fi records of the early '90s, but considerably more artful, since it was, after all, designed by one of the great pop composers of the century. ...McCartney's little flourishes are intoxicating -- not just the melodies, but the facile production and offhand invention."

  • "The album contains more ballads than most of his records do, but they were the most effective vehicles for the kind of storytelling he was trying to get to. Produced and engineered by Bones Howe, Foreign Affairs was recorded live in studio by a quintet that included West Coast jazzmen Jack Sheldon on trumpet, saxophonist Frank Vicari, bassist Jim Hughart, and drummer Shelly Manne."
