Joe Jackson
Body and Soul

  (Item #: jacksbodya_1807_1904-) 

Our Price: $99.99
Sale Price: $79.00 (You save $20.99 / 21%)


  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last on this superb copy of Body and Soul - exceptionally quiet vinyl too

  • "Body and Soul uses some of the character of 1982's Night and Day album, but instead of splitting up the music into mild jazz, pop, and modern R&B, he decided to tackle one of the genres wholeheartedly, and in doing so he came up with a truly impeccable release."

The sound was bright and sweet, as opposed to low-end raunch. If Prince had streamlined and rocked up his approach for global domination, now he was creating something more intimate, cerebral, and challenging... a brave and deeply personal project, exploring sounds and ideas that were almost shocking coming from a pop icon at his peak."

  • Includes R.E.M. favorites Radio Free Europe. Pilgrimage and 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."

Bonnie Raitt
Nick Of Time

  (Item #: raittnicko_1804_1902) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • An outstanding early domestic pressing with Double Plus (A++) sound from the first note to the last
  • Some of the sweetest, richest, most ANALOG sound we've heard from any record Don Was produced
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Producer Don Was used Raitt's classic early-'70s records as a blueprint, choosing to update the sound with a smooth, professional production and a batch of excellent contemporary songs. In this context, Raitt flourishes; she never rocks too hard, but there is grit to her singing and playing, even when the surfaces are clean and inviting. A great comeback album that made for a great story".
