There are no dull moments on World, one of the strongest albums of the 1970s and EWF's crowning achievement."

  • "As in In the Right Place, Mac has taken advantage of the specialized production talents of Allen Toussaint (at Toussaint's own Sea-Saint Studios in New Orleans), and has again used the fabled New Orleans band The Meters as his studio group. Each of the twelve cuts on the LP has been well-conceived, clearly thought-out, and reveals a new level of musical depth for the doctor."

  • Mint Minus Minus throughtout - about as quiet as we can find these vintage Stax pressings
  • 4 stars: "...the combination of King, members of the legendary Bar-Kays, the Isaac Hayes Movement, and the sparkling Memphis Horns was hardly a risky endeavor... The result was a trim, funk-infused blues sound that provided ample space for King's oft-imitated guitar playing."

Sale Price: $99.00 (You save $50.99 / 34%)


  • Outstanding sound for the followup to Innervisions, with both sides rating a strong Double Plus (A++) and playing reasonably quietly
  • Finding the right balance between Tubey Magical Richness and Transparency is the trick, and we think this copy strikes that balance well
  • Boogie On Reggae Woman and You Haven't Done Nothing were the big hits but the other tracks on the album are where the real Stevie Wonder MAGIC can be found
  • 4 1/2 stars [but we give it 5]: "The songs and arrangements are the warmest since Talking Book, and Stevie positively caresses his vocals on this set, encompassing the vagaries of love, from dreaming of it ("Creepin'") to being bashful of it ("Too Shy to Say") to knowing when it's over ("It Ain't No Use")."

  • Thanks to the brilliant engineering of Chris Huston, the sound is War at its best: big, rich, smooth and clear, with the kind of low end whomp that few rock records from the era can claim
  • 4 Stars: "A smooth blend of the band's more progressive jazz-rock fusion, the LP shot to the top of the R&B charts, their second of four number one records in a row. 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."

Our Price: $99.99

  • A superb sounding copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - this copy is guaranteed to beat anything you've heard or your money back
  • We would love to do more Supremes records, but we've had a devilishly hard time finding copies of their earlier albums that sound as big, rich and smooth as this one does
  • "The album is still solid listening 40-plus years later, with three hit singles present to help drive sales. Ross is in excellent form throughout, and the arrangements reach for the lush side of soul, which would become her trademark as a solo artist."

Sly and the Family Stone
Greatest Hits

  (Item #: slyangreat_1902_1) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • An outstanding pressing of this nearly perfect Sly record with two sides that both earned Double Plus (A++) grades or BETTER for their sound
  • Real resolution to the sound, not the opacity and blur you would expect from a greatest hits compilation
  • Exceptionally quiet vinyl throughout - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - they didn't press them any quieter
  • "This summarizes their first four albums perfectly, adding the singles "Hot Fun in the Summertime," "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)," and "Everybody Is a Star," possibly the loveliest thing they ever recorded... Greatest hits don't come better than this -- in fact, music rarely does."

War
Deliver The Word

  (Item #: war__deliv_1901_1) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side one and a side two that's right up there with it, this copy was one of the best we played in our recent shootout it
  • Thanks to the brilliant engineering of Chris Huston, the sound is War at its best: big, rich, smooth and clear, with the kind of low end whomp that few rock records from the era can claim
  • 4 Stars: "A smooth blend of the band's more progressive jazz-rock fusion, the LP shot to the top of the R&B charts, their second of four number one records in a row. 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."

  (Item #: flackrober_1711_1901) 

Our Price: $149.99
Sale Price: $129.00 (You save $20.99 / 14%)


  • An excellent copy, with strong Double Plus (A++) grades throughout, on vinyl that's exceptionally QUIET for this notoriously noisy album
  • There's Tubey Magic, sweetness and spaciousness all over this recording - when it all comes together on Where Is The Love, you won't believe how good it sounds
  • One of our favorite duet albums, Flack and the woefully underrated Soul Man Donny Hathaway are in top form here
  • Allmusic raves: "A duet classic, and perhaps the most popular album Roberta Flack made. 'Where Is the Love' dominated urban contemporary radio for almost the entire year, while 'You've Got a Friend' was just as influential..."

Rapture

  (Item #: bakerraptu_1901_1) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This quiet-storm classic earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades or BETTER for sound on both sides and plays on exceptionally quiet vinyl to boot
  • Rapture is one of the best sounding recordings from the era - with all due respect to Whitney Houston, if I could only have one album of '80s female vocals, it would have to be this one
  • Key to the sound is richness and Tubey Magic, along with strong midrange presence, and on this Super Hot Stamper you get all three
  • 5 stars: "Rapture gave Baker one moving hit after another, including "Sweet Love," "Caught up in the Rapture," "Same Ole Love," and "No One in This World."

  (Item #: king_mrblu_1812) 

Our Price: $89.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this copy was one of the best we played in our recent shootout
  • This is the right sound for an Electric Blues Guitar album from 1963 by the master of the form, Mr. B.B. King
  • And it plays about as quietly as any copy we can find for a real '60s pressing of the album
  • "... half of Mr. Blues is derived from the superior Davis-led recordings, highlighted by the Ahmet Ertegun-penned "Chains of Love." Equally enjoyable are the ebullient "I'm Gonna Sit in 'Til You Give In" and "My Baby's Comin' Home," as they bear the distinct presence of King's nimble guitar craft."
