Elvis Costello
Imperial Bedroom

  (Item #: costeimper_1806_1811) 

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
  • Geoff Emerick engineered, creating a unique sound - forget the painfully bad domestics, these imports are the only way to go
  • This dense, darkly serious album contains some of the best songs EC ever wrote - the last of his True Classics
  • 5 stars: "Costello's music is complex and intricate, yet it flows so smoothly, it's easy to miss the bitter, brutal lyrics...the detail and the ornate arrangements immediately peg Imperial Bedroom as Costello's most ambitious album."

Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited

  (Item #: dylanhighw_1811_1) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • This 360 Label stereo copy boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER 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

It's no coincidence that it's their best album since then, showcasing each at the peak of his power, as John crafts supple, elastic, versatile pop and Taupin's inscrutable wordplay is evocative, even moving."

  • An underrated album that sounds much better than most audiophiles think it does - better music too

Our Price: $69.99

  • Hot Stamper sound on both sides - guaranteed to beat any Heavy Vinyl or Half-Speed Mastered pressing you may have
  • Looking for the best sound? Try Till There Was You on side one and You Really Got A Hold On Me on the flipside
  • So many great songs: All My Loving, Roll over Beethoven, Money (That's What I Want), Devil In Her Heart...
  • "A sequel of the highest order - one that betters the original by developing its own tone and adding depth. While it may share several similarities with its predecessor - there is an equal ratio of covers-to-originals, a familiar blend of girl group, Motown, R&B, pop, and rock... With the Beatles is a better record that not only rocks harder, it's considerably more sophisticated...
