Our Price: $149.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this copy is guaranteed to blow the doors off any other Summertime Dream you've heard - relatively quiet vinyl too
  • We guarantee there is dramatically more richness, fullness, vocal presence, and performance energy on this copy than others you've heard, and that's especially true if you made the mistake of buying whatever Heavy Vinyl pressing is currently on the market
  • 4 1/2 stars: "With Summertime Dream, Gordon Lightfoot produced one of his finest albums, and wrapped up a six-year period of popularity... Lightfoot and his band deliver a tasty smorgasbord of intelligent, grown-up music. As for "Edmund Fitzgerald," its continued popularity more than 20 years after its release attests to the power of a well-told tale and a tasty guitar lick."

Chicken Skin Music is probably Ry Cooder's most eccentric record since his first, but it's also one of his most entertaining."

  • "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...
