Super Hot Stamper (Quiet Vinyl)

Milt Jackson et al.
The Big 3

  (Item #: jacksbig3_1908_12) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • A superb sounding Pablo recording from 1976 - this copy gives you outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or better - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • We found the sound superb, but even better is the fact that with only three instruments - vibes, guitar (Joe Pass) and bass (Ray Brown) - each of the players has plenty of room to stretch out and have fun with the tunes
  • 5 Stars: "The colorful repertoire -- ranging from "The Pink Panther" and "Blue Bossa" to "Nuages" and "Come Sunday" -- acts as a device for the musicians to construct some brilliant bop-based solos."

Our Price: $74.99

  • A superb sounding Pablo recording from 1976 - this copy gives you outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or better from start to finish
  • We found the sound superb, but even better is the fact that with only three instruments - vibes, guitar (Joe Pass) and bass (Ray Brown) - each of the players has plenty of room to stretch out and have fun with the tunes
  • 5 Stars: "The colorful repertoire -- ranging from "The Pink Panther" and "Blue Bossa" to "Nuages" and "Come Sunday" -- acts as a device for the musicians to construct some brilliant bop-based solos."

Tom Waits

  (Item #: waitssmall_1907_1) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • An outstanding early Asylum pressing which earned excellent Double Plus (A++) sonic grades on both sides
  • Recorded LIVE to 2-track by audio legend Bones Howe in 1976, no wonder the sound is so big, full-bodied, clean and clear

  • 4 1/2 stars: "Small Change proves to be the archetypal album of his '70s work. A jazz trio comprising tenor sax player Lew Tabackin, bassist Jim Hughart and drummer Shelly Manne, plus an occasional string section, back Waits and his piano on songs steeped in whiskey and atmosphere..."

Willie Nelson
The Troublemaker

  (Item #: nelsotroub_1907) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides, this is an excellent copy from our most recent shootout - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • It's richer, fuller, more musical and more natural - Willie's breathy voice is reproduced with a solidity and immediacy that's not easy to find
  • "The Troublemaker is Willie Nelson's first all-gospel album, but country gospel in his hands doesn't sound like traditional country gospel -- it's a Willie album, through and through... Consequently, it's every bit as wonderfully idiosyncratic as any of his other mid-'70s work and, in some ways, even more so, because inspirational songs and religious material are usually not given arrangements as imaginative and free-spirited as this... "

  • This superb copy of Roy Cooder's 1976 release boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Here is that live-in-the-studio quality that we rave about, on this very copy
  • The exceptional transparency and resolution let you appreciate even the most subtle details of the unusually wide variety of instruments Ry and his bandmates play
  • 4 stars: "As he explains in the album's liner notes, Cooder understands the connection between these seemingly disparate styles. This is not merely eclecticism for its own sake. Chicken Skin Music is probably Ry Cooder's most eccentric record since his first, but it's also one of his most entertaining."

  • You won't believe how big, rich and full this album can sound on a copy this good
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The album's highlight is 'Why Must I Cry,' a multi-layered song (co-written with Bob Marley) that conveys a sense of personal failure when fighting an uphill battle, whether it be against injustices of the world or within the confines of a relationship. Legalize It cemented Tosh's position as a giant in reggae, and the album is one of the best albums of the genre."
