This is the rare art-rock album that excels at both the art and the rock, and it's a pinnacle of the genre (and decade) because of it."

Bob Dylan
Another Side of Bob Dylan

  (Item #: dylananoth_1807_1) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • An excellent Mono copy of this early Dylan classic with surprisingly good Double Plus (A++) sound throughout
  • We were impressed by just how clear and present Dylan's voice sounded on this copy - this is the way you want to hear the man
  • Many classics are here: All I Really Want To Do, Chimes Of Freedom, My Back Pages, It Ain't Me Babe and 7 more
  • 5 Stars: "Another Side of Bob Dylan is a more varied record and it's more successful, too, since it captures Dylan expanding his music, turning in imaginative, poetic performances on love songs and protest tunes alike. The result is one of his very best records, a lovely intimate affair."

Abandoned Luncheonette

  (Item #: hallaband_1802_1807) 

Our Price: $149.99
Sale Price: $119.00 (You save $30.99 / 21%)


  • Excellent sound throughout with each side rating a Double Plus (A++) for Hall and Oates One True Masterpiece

  • 5 stars: "Hall & Oates' second album was the first indication of the duo's talent for sleek, soul-inflected pop/rock. It featured the single "She's Gone," which would become a big hit in 1975 when it was re-released following the success of "Sara Smile.""

Our Price: $349.99

  • A superb sounding copy with both sides rating a solid Double Plus (A++) or BETTER
  • Another amazing 30th Street Studio recording by the legendary Fred Plaut - if you like Kind of Blue, here's another album with that sound (same year, same studio, same engineer)

  • 5 stars: "Mingus Ah Um is a stunning summation of the bassist's talents and probably the best reference point for beginners... Mingus' compositions and arrangements were always extremely focused, assimilating individual spontaneity into a firm consistency of mood, and that approach reaches an ultra-tight zenith on Mingus Ah Um"

Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited

  (Item #: dylanhighw_1804_1807) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • This 360 Label stereo copy boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - and it's QUIET
  • Clean stereo pressings of this album are ridiculously hard to come by these days, not to mention that few copies will sound as good as this one does
  • In the same way that Sgt. Pepper changed music a mere two years later, Highway 61 Revisited left all of Dylan's contemporaries behind, scrambling to keep up with the standard it set
  • "Dylan had not only changed his sound, but his persona, trading the folk troubadour for a streetwise, cynical hipster ... it proved that rock & roll needn't be collegiate and tame in order to be literate, poetic, and complex." - 5 Stars

  • This dense, darkly serious album contains some of the best songs EC ever wrote - the last of his True Classics
  • Allmusic 5 Stars: "Essentially, the songs on Imperial Bedroom are an extension of Costello's jazz and pop infatuations on Trust. Costello's music is complex and intricate, yet it flows so smoothly, it's easy to miss the bitter, brutal lyrics."

  • "Stevie Wonder applied his tremendous songwriting talents to the unsettled social morass that was the early '70s and produced one of his greatest, most important works, a rich panoply of songs addressing drugs, spirituality, political ethics, and what looked to be the failure of the '60s dream -- all set within a collection of charts as funky and catchy as any he'd written before."
