Ray Charles
All Time Great Country and Western Hits

  (Item #: charlallti_2004_8) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • A stunning sounding copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on sides one, two and three and solid Double Plus (A++) sound on the fourth side
  • What was especially shocking about this shootout is that in some ways the best sounding copies of the reissue not just equal but best their original album counterparts
  • 22 classic songs on two LPs, including huge hits like I Can't Stop Loving You, You Don't Know Me, Oh Lonesome Me, Bye Bye Love, and much more - no wonder AMG gave both discs 5 stars
  • This is some big, bold, absolutely glorious Tubey Magical analog - the tape to disc transfer is Hard To Fault (HTF), making a mockery of the audiophile remasters to come

Our Price: $149.99

  • Insanely good sound on all four sides with each earning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades - exceptionally quiet vinyl for the most part too

  • "Hurt was remarkably consistent as a performer... the skill and delivery is always steady, professional, and charming. Among the highlights in this set is his intricate and atmospheric slide guitar work on "Talking Casey," one of the few times Hurt abandoned his trademark three-finger guitar picking style." - All Music

  • "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."

When appearing at The Fickle Pickle, Williams played an electric nine-string guitar through a small ramshackle amp with a pie plate nailed to it and a beer can dangling against that. The total effect of this incredible apparatus produced the most buzzing, sizzling, African-sounding music one would likely ever hear."

It was a perfect tonic to the mediocre MOR music rampaging its way through the early part of the decade...A magical ride with plenty of surprises to keep the listener on his or her toes, this set is a perfect example of the band at their genre-fusing best."

  • With a Triple Plus (A+++) Shootout Winning side one and a side two that's right up there with it, this copy is practically as good as it gets
  • This early pressing has killer Hot Stamper sound on both sides - here's the midrange magic that’s surely missing from whatever 180g reissue has been made from the tapes (or, to be clear, a modern digital master copied from who-knows-what-tapes)
  • Another of Ray's albums in the style of Modern Sounds In Country & Western Music - maybe not the equal of those classics, but not far from them either
  • All the Amazon User Reviews give the album a Five Star rating - hard to do better than that!

Our Price: $249.99

  • With two Triple Plus (A+++) Shootout Winning sides, this original pressing of Booker's very well recorded album from 1970 is clearly the BEST we have ever heard - exceptionally QUIET vinyl too, especially for a Stax original

  • "Melting Pot could be the most well-realized of all the albums by Booker T. & the M.G.'s, a smooth and soulful, yet expansive 35 minutes of all originals... Melting Pot managed to be a sort of back-to-the-roots effort, but was also a strikingly more expansive record, with Jones in particular playing with an almost demonic intensity and range..."

  • This copy will shame most Blues albums for sound and music - it's quite a bit better than any other Son Seals album we have played as well
  • 4 stars: "The Chicago mainstay's debut album was a rough, gruff, no-nonsense affair typified by the decidedly unsentimental track "Your Love Is like a Cancer." Seals wasn't all that far removed from his southern roots at this point, and his slashing guitar work sports a strikingly raw feel on his originals "Look Now, Baby," "Cotton Picking Blues," and "Hot Sauce" (the latter a blistering instrumental that sounds a bit like the theme from Batman played sideways)."
