U2
War

  (Item #: u2___war_1905x) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • A Shootout Winning copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound throughout - this copy is going to be very hard to beat - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Real clarity and resolution in the midrange, not the congested, dark quality we hear on so many of U2's records
  • Full-bodied, smooth analog sound is the key to the best pressings, and here is that sound, on both sides
  • 5 Stars: "Opening with the ominous, fiery protest of "Sunday Bloody Sunday," War immediately announces itself as U2's most focused and hardest-rocking album to date. Blowing away the fuzzy, sonic indulgences of October with propulsive, martial rhythms and shards of guitar, War bristles with anger, despair, and above all, passion... U2 always aimed at greatness, but War was the first time they achieved it."

  • In-the-room vocal presence (Jennifer Warnes is stunning on Leonard Cohen's Ballad Of The Runaway Horse) and tight, note-like bass are key to the best pressings
  • Exceptionally quiet vinyl throughout - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - they don't come quieter in our experience
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Some amazing duets and a great lineup that includes Aaron Neville (v), Stephane Grappelli (violin), Dan Hicks (v, g), and so on. The jazz community missed this one." [But the audiophile community loved it.)

Couldn't Stand The Weather

  (Item #: vaughcould_1905) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • A truly superb pressing with both sides rating nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++), just shy of our Shootout Winner
  • The bass is big, the overall presentation is huge, and the energy is jumpin' on this early pressing - this is the right sound for SRV's hard-chargin' Electric Blues
  • Exceptionally quiet vinyl, Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout - they didn't press them any quieter in our experience
  • 4 stars: "Stevie Ray Vaughan's second album, Couldn't Stand the Weather, pretty much did everything a second album should do: it confirmed that the acclaimed debut was no fluke, while matching, if not bettering, the sales of its predecessor, thereby cementing Vaughan's status as a giant of modern blues."

Our Price: $59.99

  • An excellent copy with Hot Stamper sound or better for this gazillion-selling 80's classic - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • We would be foolish to make claims for "audiophile quality" sound on Springsteen's albums - they are what they are (but here's a good one)
  • 5 stars: "The "romantic young boys" of his first two albums, chastened by "the working life" encountered on his third, fourth, and fifth albums and having faced the despair of his sixth, were still alive on this, his seventh, with their sense of humor and their determination intact. Born in the U.S.A. was their apotheosis, the place where they renewed their commitment and where Springsteen remembered that he was a rock & roll star, which is how a vastly increased public was happy to treat him."

The group follows him through all his moods and meanderings, from the lilting cadences of "Tore Down à la Rimbaud" and "Ancient of Days" to the stately auguring of "Let the Slave" and the airy, triumphal shimmer of "A New Kind of Man." A Sense of Wonder is serenely uplifting. With astonishing commitment and profound belief, Van Morrison continues to push forward into the mystic."
