Elvis Costello
King of America

Our Price: $99.99

  • Nina Simone's "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" is only one highlight among many - these are some of his best songs
  • AMG raves: "Stripping away much of the excess that cluttered Punch the Clock and Goodbye Cruel World, Elvis Costello returned to his folk-rock and pub rock roots with King of America, creating one of his most affecting and personal records ... one of his masterpieces."

Neil Young
Hawks and Doves

  (Item #: younghawks_1808_1811) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb sounding pressing with Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER throughout
  • 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."

Reckoning

  (Item #: rem_recko_1807_1811) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from the first note to the last
  • The overall sound here is super clean, clear and open with deep punchy bass and plenty of energy
  • "Reckoning runs through a set of ten jangle pop songs that are different not only in sound but in style from the debut. Where Murmur was enigmatic in its sound, Reckoning is clear, which doesn't necessarily mean that the songs themselves are straightforward. Michael Stipe continues to sing powerful melodies without enunciating, but the band has a propulsive kick that makes the music vital and alive... the songwriting is more direct and memorable than before..." - All Music

David Bowie
Scary Monsters

  (Item #: bowiescary_1807_1811) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • An outstanding copy of what some have called Bowie's last great album, with one side earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades and the other not far behind
  • The best British pressings like this one are big and clear yet rich and smooth, the best of all possible worlds
  • This UK LP plays about as quietly as any we have heard - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • 5 Stars: "David Bowie returned to relatively conventional rock & roll with Scary Monsters, an album that effectively acts as an encapsulation of all his '70s experiments. Reworking glam rock themes with avant-garde synth flourishes, and reversing the process as well, Bowie creates dense but accessible music throughout Scary Monsters."

Led by guitarist Albert Lee, the group is a collective of accomplished professionals who have managed to keep some grit in their playing. They help push Clapton along, forcing him to spit out crackling solos throughout the album."

Punch The Clock

  (Item #: costepunch_1803) 

Our Price: $59.99

  • You'll find Hot Stamper sound on both sides of this Elvis Costello classic
  • The bottom end here is as punchy, well-defined and powerful as they come - there's plenty of low-end on this record
  • The overall clarity and transparency is superb, allowing you to appreciate subtleties in the top end even when the bass and drums are really pounding
  • "Punch the Clock won't alter anyone's opinion of Elvis Costello because it doesn't represent much of a change for him. He remains the most consistently interesting songwriter in rock & roll, and there is evidence that a new, more emotionally generous sensibility may soon be present in his work." Rolling Stone

Eric Clapton
Just One Night

  (Item #: claptjusto_1801_1) 

Our Price: $69.99

  • A very good sounding copy with Hot Stamper sound on all four sides and vinyl that's as quiet as any we can find
  • This one is doing an awful lot right-- it's got the big, bold, rich ANALOG sound that we love here at Better Records
  • Sure to be the best live Clapton sound you'll hear on vinyl -- and the music is wonderful as well
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The most notable difference between Just One Night and Clapton's other live albums is his backing band. Led by guitarist Albert Lee, the group is a collective of accomplished professionals who have managed to keep some grit in their playing. They help push Clapton along, forcing him to spit out crackling solos throughout the album."
