It has a bit of a bluesier edge than other AC/DC records, but this is truly the sound of the band reaching its peak... it's sweaty, dirty, nasty rock, music that is played to the last call and beyond, and they've rarely done that kind of rock better than they did here."

Our Price: $99.99

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides of this early Classic Genesis album
  • Easily one of the toughest Genesis albums to find with good sound and clean surfaces, but this one delivers
  • 5 stars: "Foxtrot is where Genesis began to pull all of its varied inspirations into a cohesive sound -- which doesn't necessarily mean that the album is streamlined, for this is a group that always was grandiose even when they were cohesive, or even when they rocked, which they truly do for the first time here. This is the rare art-rock album that excels at both the art and the rock, and it's a pinnacle of the genre (and decade) because of it."

It may not be nearly as popular as either, but musically, it's just as satisfying and is one of the quiet highlights in Willie's vast catalog."

  • Allmusic raves: "A duet classic, and perhaps the most popular album Roberta Flack made. 'Where Is the Love' dominated urban contemporary radio for almost the entire year, while 'You've Got a Friend' was just as influential..."

  • Big, rich and smooth, with wonderfully breathy vocals, these early pressings are hard to beat
  • 4 stars: "Though 1972's I'll Play the Blues for You followed a slightly different formula, the combination of King, members of the legendary Bar-Kays, the Isaac Hayes Movement, and the sparkling Memphis Horns was hardly a risky endeavor. The result was a trim, funk-infused blues sound that provided ample space for King's oft-imitated guitar playing."

  • "...much of the record teems with invigorating energy (as on Slowburn, or the orchestral-disco pulse of Down the Dolce Vita), and the closer "Here Comes the Flood" burns with an anthemic intensity that would later become his signature in the '80s."
