It was a perfect tonic to the mediocre MOR music rampaging its way through the early part of the decade...A magical ride with plenty of surprises to keep the listener on his or her toes, this set is a perfect example of the band at their genre-fusing best."

  • The sound is Demo Disc Quality on the more highly produced tracks, of which there are plenty spread over the two discs
  • The power of the bottom end is especially impressive on all four sides (and John McVie kills it on bass!)
  • 5 stars: "Because of its ambitions, Tusk failed to replicate the success of its two predecessors ... yet it earned a dedicated cult audience of fans of twisted, melodic pop." Twisted melodic pop? Sign me up!

Our Price: $299.99

  • A stunning sounding copy of the band's first A&M release, with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • This superb original pressing is huge and rich, with prodigious amounts of bass, like no other copy you've heard

"Equinox" is a must own album for Styx fans and remains one of the band's best works." Amazon Reviewer

These are not the sort of Steely Dan songs favored by smooth-jazz stations."
