Ambrosia
One Eighty

  (Item #: ambrooneei_1709_1805) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With a nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) side one and a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side two, this copy will be very hard to beat
  • Prodigious bass, powerful dynamics, analog Tubey Magical richness and choruses that get big and loud are the hallmarks of our better Hot Stamper copies
  • An excellent mix of rockers and softer pop ballads. The last track, Biggest Part Of Me, no matter how many times you've heard it, on the radio, wherever you happen to be, is unabashed Soft Rock Magic, the way Bread's big ballads are Soft Rock Magic, and we make no apologies for loving the hell out of them both
  • "Biggest Part of Me combines rich Beach Boys-styled harmonies with a heartfelt lyric to create a rich slice of blue-eyed soul..."

Squeeze
Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti

  (Item #: squeecosif_1703_1805) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • This British original earned excellent sonic grades of Double Plus (A++) on both sides - the band sounds great here
  • This has long been a favorite album of mine, a Desert Island Disc if you will, with some of the most powerfully produced, intelligently written and passionately performed songs in the entire Squeeze canon
  • The domestic pressings are obviously made from dubs, and only the best of the Brits have sound even approaching this copy
  • ""By Your Side," "I Learnt How to Pray," and "Last Time Forever" are all darker tunes than just about any Squeeze had done so far but they carry an emotional punch." Boy, do they
