Foreigner
Foreigner

  (Item #: foreiforei_1811) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding copy of Foreigner's self-titled debut album with solid Double Plus (A++) sound throughout
  • Super big, full-bodied and spacious with plenty of bottom end weight, this is the way you want your Foreigner album to sound

  • 4 stars: "The album spawned some of the biggest FM hits of 1977... , and the state-of-the-art rock production values of the day, which allowed the band to sound hard but polished. As pure rock craftsmanship goes, Foreigner was as good as it got in the late '70s."

The Three
The Three
(33 RPM)

  (Item #: threethree_33_1801_1810) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • A true Demo Disc, with outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades for sound or BETTER on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too!
  • The transients are uncannily lifelike - listen for the huge amounts of kinetic energy produced when Shelly whacks the hell out of his cymbals
  • My favorite Piano Trio Jazz Album of All Time; every one of those six tracks is brilliantly arranged and performed (if you have the right takes of course; more about that later)
  • 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

  • "Working with guitarist Mick Ronson and producer Tony Visconti for the first time, Bowie developed a tight, twisted heavy guitar rock that appears simple on the surface but sounds more gnarled upon each listen."

Miles Davis
Green Haze

  (Item #: davisgreen_1810) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A wonderful collection on 2 Mono LPs, with excellent Double Plus (A++) grades or better for sides one and two
  • This Two-Fer combines two complete Miles Davis albums recorded by RVG in 1955 - 'The Musings of Miles' and 'Miles'
  • Talk about Tubey Magic, the liquidity of the sound here is positively uncanny
  • "This set could have been retitled "The Birth of a Quintet." The great trumpeter is featured in top form with pianist Garland, bassist Pettiford and drummer Jones for the first session, and with Garland, Jones, bassist Chambers and a tentative-sounding tenor-saxophonist named Coltrane a few months later... it is for the excellent rhythm sections and the playing of Miles Davis that this two-fer is highly recommended."

  • "Reteaming with the Band, Bob Dylan winds up with an album that recalls New Morning more than The Basement Tapes, since Planet Waves is given to a relaxed intimate tone...

  • With a wonderful combination of Tubey Magical richness and clarity, this pressing will be very hard to beat
  • Full-bodied and lush, yet not veiled or distant, this is the sound that brings the Moodies magic to life
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The best-realized of their classic albums, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour was also the last of the group's albums for almost a decade to be done under reasonably happy and satisfying circumstances — for the last time with this lineup, they went into the studio with a reasonably full song bag and a lot of ambition and brought both as far as time would allow..."

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."

Our Price: $49.99

  • Wonderfully warm and relaxed sound on both sides of this Hot Stamper pressing
  • A Top 100 Album and one of our favorite Nilsson releases - it's The Ultimate album of latter-day standards
  • "Nilsson was nearly a decade ahead of Linda Ronstadt and other nouveau crooners in hiring a conductor/arranger of the pre-rock era (in this case Gordon Jenkins) and recording an album of standards before a full orchestra. And he did it better than most, proving to be a marvelous interpreter of songs like "What'll I Do?" and "Makin' Whoopee!" His version of "As Time Goes By" became a minor hit."

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."

  • An excellent copy, with strong Double Plus (A++) grades throughout, on vinyl that's exceptionally QUIET for this notoriously noisy album
  • There's Tubey Magic, sweetness and spaciousness all over this recording - when it all comes together on Where Is The Love, you won't believe how good it sounds
  • One of our favorite duet albums, Flack and the woefully underrated Soul Man Donny Hathaway are in top form here
  • 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..."

Genesis
Foxtrot

  (Item #: genesfoxtr_1808_1) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • 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."

Our Price: $149.99

  • This early pressing earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) sonic grades - this is a Royal Scam with energy and drive
  • This copy of The Dan's hard-rockin' classic from 1976 has the right sound for this music - rich and meaty, with powerful rhythmic energy
  • "Drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie lashes out the rolling grooves on most of the nine tracks, establishing the album's anxious feel, and Larry Carlton's jaw-dropping guitar work provides a running commentary to Fagen's strangulated vocals... These are not the sort of Steely Dan songs favored by smooth-jazz stations."
