  • An amazing sounding pressing with Triple Plus (A+++) sound on the first side and Double Plus (A++) on the second
  • The trick on this album is to find rich, smooth, edge-free sound, and this copy delivers those qualities like nothing else we played all day
  • "Hawks and Doves has a homey feel. "Little Wing," bare and haltingly lyrical with its miked harp and unaccompanied acoustic, is simpler than anything on the folky Comes a Time, and the rest of the music is defined by Ben Keith's laconic dobro and steel and Rufus Thobodeaux's sawing fiddle."

  • 4 1/2 stars: "With "Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man," and "Legs," they had their greatest set of singles since the heady days of Tres Hombres, and the songs that surrounded them weren't bad either -- they would have been singles on El Loco, as a matter of fact... ZZ Top never sounded as much like a band of its time as they did here."

  • The sound here is richer and more Tubey Magical than just about any release from the '80s I can think of
  • Wonderful three-dimensional space courtesy of ace engineer James Guthrie (The Wall)
  • "David Gilmour released his second solo venture in 1984, following the apparent dissolution of Pink Floyd. He had released a record on his own in 1978, but About Face is much more accessible. The songs show a pop sensibility that Pink Floyd rarely was concerned with achieving. About Face is a well-honed rock album that is riveting from beginning to end."

  • This is probably the last domestically pressed record he made that still has the kind of sound we look for in a Hot Stamper
  • "Over the years, Morrison has gathered around him a band that plays, like the best jazz ensembles, with effortless empathy. 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."

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...

Let's Dance

  (Item #: bowieletsd_1811_1) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • These two excellent sides, both rating Double Plus (A++) grades for sound, are guaranteed to deliver the funky goods on this '80s classic
  • We love the low end weight and midrange smoothness on these killer copies - they're big, clear and rich with some of the most powerful, punchiest bass you've ever heard
  • A real Demo Disc at high volumes on the right system - Modern Love, China Girl and the title track are knockouts when you play them good and loud
  • Top 100 of course - Let's Dance is one of the best sounding Bowie albums ever recorded - this superb pressing is proof! - and it's quiet

Michael Jackson
Bad

  (Item #: jacksbad_1811) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • A superb sounding copy of MJ's followup to Thriller, with Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - quiet vinyl too
  • One of the better copies from our most recent shootout - the sound is simply bigger, bolder and more ALIVE than most of what we played
  • 4 1/2 stars, with nine of its ten songs released as singles: "... essentially taking each portion of Thriller to an extreme, while increasing the quotient of immaculate studiocraft. He wound up with a sleeker, slicker Thriller, which isn't a bad thing..."

  • Bowie's Putting Out Fire is the obvious high point of the album and it rocks like crazy on this pressing
  • Superb transparency is key to the best copies and this one has exceptional clarity on both sides

R.E.M.
Murmur

  (Item #: rem__murmu_1808_1811) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • A stunning sounding copy with a Triple Plus (A+++) side one and a solid Double Plus (A++) side two
  • Both sides here are big, rich and analog sounding, yet uncongested, clear and open - a combination not often heard on Murmur
  • As Good As It Gets sound for some of the R.E.M. classics that put them on the map: Radio Free Europe, Pilgrimage, Talk About the Passion and more
  • 5 Stars: "The songs on Murmur sound as if they've existed forever, yet they subvert folk and pop conventions by taking unpredictable twists and turns into melodic, evocative territory... R.E.M. may have made albums as good as Murmur in the years following its release, but they never again made anything that sounded quite like it."

Imperial Bedroom

Our Price: $249.99

  • With Triple Plus (A+++) sound or something close to it on both sides this UK pressing is as good a copy as we have ever offered

Lifes Rich Pageant

  (Item #: rem__lifes_1806_1811) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this copy was one of the best we played in our recent shootout
  • You'll hear more energy and more immediacy, plus an extra shot of analog richness that really ties the sound together
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Where previous records kept the rhythm section in the background, Pageant emphasizes the beat, and the band turns in its hardest rockers to date... the band sound more contemporary both musically and lyrically than they did on either Fables or Murmur, which helps give the record an extra kick."

Little Feat
Hoy-Hoy

  (Item #: littlhoyho_1609_1811) 

Our Price: $69.99

  • Three sides earned Double Plus (A++) grades for sound or better - side four earned a Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++)
  • Our pick for the best sounding Little Feat album -- it's a monster, and a Must Own for any fan of the band
  • "Filled with live performances, obscurities, album tracks, and a new song apiece from Bill Payne and Paul Barrere, Hoy Hoy is a bit scattered, a bit incoherent, a little bewildering, and wholly delightful -- a perfect summation of a group filled with quirks, character, and funk, traits which were as much a blessing as they were a curse."

  • 4 stars on Allmusic: "James Taylor bounced back from the spotty Flag with this all-original album led by his collaboration with J.D. Souther on "Her Town Too," his biggest pop hit since "Handy Man," and his biggest non-cover hit since his first, "Fire And Rain," in 1970."

Tears For Fears
Songs From The Big Chair

  (Item #: tearssongs_1811) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • An excellent early British pressing, with Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides - quiet vinyl too
  • Rich, spacious and lively, with an open, extended top end - this is the sound you want from Tears for Fears
  • More great songs than practically anything from the '80s - Shout, Everybody Wants To Rule The World and Head Over Heels, just to name a few
  • "It is not only a commercial triumph, it is an artistic tour de force. And in the loping, percolating "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," Tears for Fears perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the mid-'80s while impossibly managing to also create a dreamy, timeless pop classic. Songs From the Big Chair is one of the finest statements of the decade."

  • Wonderful engineering from the legendary Val Valentin, the man behind some of the best sounding jazz records of all time
  • "... this quartet date features the two pianos of Oscar Peterson and Count Basie collaborating and interacting on swing standards and blues. Any of their five albums together are worth acquiring."

In the process, they recorded, arguably, their most impressive album, one that demonstrates all sides of Costello's songwriting and performing personality without succumbing to pretentiousness."

  • The trick on Hawks and Doves is to find rich, smooth, edge-free sound, and this copy delivers those qualities like nothing you've ever heard, guaranteed
  • "Hawks and Doves has a homey feel. "Little Wing," bare and haltingly lyrical with its miked harp and unaccompanied acoustic, is simpler than anything on the folky Comes a Time, and the rest of the music is defined by Ben Keith's laconic dobro and steel and Rufus Thobodeaux's sawing fiddle."
