Our Price: $99.99

  • This copy of Sheet Music boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound and relatively quiet vinyl too
  • Rich, full and balanced with plenty of deep bass and Arty Rock energy, this is a Truly Amazing Demo Disc

  • "Three hit singles spun off the record, and most of the other tracks could have followed suit; it says much for Sheet Music's staying power that, no matter how many times the album is reissued, it has never lost its power to delight, excite, and set alight a lousy day."

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER from first note to last on this superb copy of Goats Head Soup - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • We guarantee the sound is dramatically bigger, richer, fuller, and livelier than any pressing you have ever heard
  • Who knew the record could sound this good? Certainly not us - we had no luck with this album for years
  • "This may not be as downright funky, freaky, and fantastic as Exile, yet the extra layer of gloss brings out the enunciated lyrics, added strings, wah-wah guitars, explicit sex, and violence, making it all seem trippily decadent..."

  (Item #: yes__yesal_1812_1906) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • A Big As Life copy with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades or close to them on both sides - Yours Is No Disgrace is mindblowing on this side one
  • This original pressing has some of the quietest vinyl we've heard for a Shootout Winner, but on side two there are some condition problems, discussed below
  • A Top 100 Album and the band's best sounding record if you ask us (although Fragile can sound absolutely amazing too)
  • "Organist Tony Kaye, guitarist Steve Howe and bass player Chris Squire play as though of one mind, complementing each other's work as a knowledgeable band should."

Sky Dive

  (Item #: hubbaskydi_1906) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • With a nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) side one and a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side two, this copy will be hard to beat - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • This is the kind of spacious, low-distortion, dynamic, energetic sound Van Gelder was getting in the early '70s and we LOVE him for it
  • Hubbard got together a seriously talented group of funky jazz players to support him here, with Don Sebesky doing his usual inventive arrangements
  • 4 Stars: "Freddie Hubbard's fourth CTI recording certainly has a diverse repertoire. The charts for the brass and woodwinds are colorful; there is a fine supporting cast that includes guitarist George Benson, Keith Jarrett on keyboards, and flutist Hubert Laws; and Hubbard takes several outstanding trumpet solos."

  • A KILLER copy of the band's third release with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides
  • Rich, clear and lively, with 3-D studio space, this is the band's Masterpiece sounding right
  • On the best copies - like this one - the music just JUMPS out of the speakers
  • 4 1/2 stars: "There's absolutely no filler... everybody is in top form. "Baby Blue" is textbook power-pop — irresistibly catchy fuzz riffs and sighing melodies — and with its Harrison-esque slide guitars, "Day After Day" is so gorgeous it practically aches. This fine songwriting, combined with sharp performances and exquisite studio craft, make Straight Up one of the cornerstones of power-pop, a record that proved that it was possible to make classic guitar-pop after its golden era had passed."

  • 4 1/2 stars [but we give it 5]: "The songs and arrangements are the warmest since Talking Book, and 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")."

  • It's incredibly difficult to find big, bold, lively sound like this for Queen with surfaces that play as quietly as these do (with just a few minor issues on side one, see below)
  • "Its sleek, streamlined finish is the biggest indication that Queen has entered a new phase, where they're globe-conquering titans instead of underdogs on the make."

Our Price: $149.99

  • A true Demo Disc of this wonderful recording, with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - exceptionally quiet vinyl too

  • 4 Stars: "One of Joe Sample's finest sessions as a leader" - with Shelly Manne and Ray Brown, we would say it's clearly his finest session, as a leader or simply as the piano player in a killer trio

  • Stunning sound throughout with both sides of this very well recorded Desmond album from 1970 earning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades
  • This pressing was noticeably richer, smoother and more natural than the competition - it's also a big step up over many of the other CTI pressings of the man's albums we've played
  • Desmond's sax is wonderfully present and breathy, and a copy with top grades like these is surely the best way to hear Don Sebesky's wonderful strings with all their satiny sheen intact
  • "Desmond finds something beautiful, wistful, and/or sly to say in each of these ten tunes, backed by Herbie Hancock's Rhodes electric piano and a set of ravishing, occasionally overstated (as in "America") orchestrations by Don Sebesky."

Armed Forces

  (Item #: costearmed_1906) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • Superb sound throughout with all six sides of this epic live collection earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades or BETTER
  • "No record album can replace a live appearance by the Dead — but those who can’t get enough of this exceptional band will be kept busy for a good little while with this one." - Rolling Stone
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The band mixes a bevy of new material with revisitations of back-catalog favorites. Sadly, this European jaunt would be the last of its kind to include the formidable talents and soul of founding member Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, who was in increasingly fragile health. Although few in number, his contributions to Europe '72 are among the most commanding not only of this release, but of his career."
