  • 5 Stars on Allmusic and a distinguished member of our Top 100 - a Must Own for any Zep fan
  • "On their first two albums, Led Zeppelin unleashed a relentless barrage of heavy blues and rockabilly riffs, but Led Zeppelin III provided the band with the necessary room to grow musically. While there are still a handful of metallic rockers, III is built on a folky, acoustic foundation that gives the music extra depth."

Van Halen
Van Halen II

  (Item #: vanhavanh2_1902) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • A superb sounding copy with Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER throughout
  • Big, full-bodied and lively with a huge bottom end and tons of energy -- the right sound for this music!
  • "... this feels both heavier and lighter than the debut. Heavier in that this sounds big and powerful, driven by mastodon riffs that aim straight of the gut. Lighter in that there's a nimbleness to the attack... it's hard not to marvel at these two frontmen, and hard not to be sucked into the vortex of some of the grandest hard rock ever made." - All Music, 4 Stars

  • An outstanding vintage UK copy with Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - fairly quiet vinyl too

Creedence Clearwater Revival
Pendulum

  (Item #: creedpendu_1808_1902) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Excellent Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides - one of the few vintage copies to hit the site in years (!)
  • The overall sound here is clean, clear and full-bodied with great bass and solid midrange presence and energy
  • 4 stars: "John Fogerty spent time polishing the production, bringing in keyboards, horns, even a vocal choir. His songs became self-consciously serious and tighter, working with the aesthetic of the rock underground — Pendulum was constructed as a proper album, contrasting dramatically with CCR's previous records, all throwbacks to joyous early rock records where covers sat nicely next to hits and overlooked gems tucked away at the end of the second side."

Gasoline Alley

  (Item #: stewagasol_1802_1902) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • 5 Stars: "Of course, being a rocker at heart, Stewart doesn't let these songs become limp acoustic numbers -- these rock harder than any fuzz-guitar workout. The drums crash and bang, the acoustic guitars are pounded with a vengeance -- it's a wild, careening sound that is positively joyous with its abandon."

  • An excellent sounding copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides - this one is rockin"!
  • Rich, full tonality and good presence and energy throughout - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • A surprisingly good sounding album, one of the best of his posthumous releases
  • "Dolly Dagger” is arguably one of the great pop songs of Hendrix’s career. Written towards the very end of his life, the song sounds like it was written years earlier, and it certainly has the same feel as many of the compositions on Hendrix’s debut, Are You Experienced?. Of course, Hendrix’s guitar work is inspired, but it doesn’t draw attention away from what is essentially a brilliantly crafted song."
