Traffic
John Barleycorn Must Die

  (Item #: traffjohnb_1901) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this copy was one of the better pressings we played in our shootout
  • Both sides have the vintage analog sound we love - rich and smooth, with plenty of Tubey Magic and studio space - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Arguably their best album, certainly their most groundbreaking, original and involving - Low Spark would rank a close second
  • "...the band sounds utterly grounded. As the grooves percolate effortlessly along, it becomes clear that unity, not any technical skill, is what makes the music levitate."

  (Item #: allmaplayi_1811_1901) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • This outstanding copy boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish
  • A surprisingly well-recorded album - the sound is exceptionally rich, smooth and natural in the best tradition of Seventies Analog
  • "Playin' Up a Storm is a well-made, expertly performed set of blues-rock, soul-pop, and straight-ahead rock & roll ...the thing that makes it one of Allman's best solo efforts is the terrific performances. Not only is he in fine voice, delivering each song with conviction, but his supporting band - featuring such luminaries as Dr. John and Bill Payne - is sterling."

  • Engineered by the legendary Eddie Kramer, what other live rock record sounds this good?
  • "There was a time where this kind of self-congratulatory improvisation was not only accepted but expected and Performance not only captures that point in time, but in its exacting detail it illustrates how this self-satisfied instrumental exploration could be a very good thing."

  • Three of Petty's best songs are on this one - Restless, I Need To Know and Listen To Her Heart - and they sound amazing
  • "Overall, the current LP boasts an impressive stylistic cohesiveness with its predecessor, but what makes the album exciting are the fresh hints of openness and expansion just beneath the surface. The rhythms are a bit looser, and there's a new emphasis on Petty's rough, driving, rock & roll guitar in the mix." Rolling Stone
