  • The best British pressings like this one are big and clear yet rich and smooth, the best of all possible worlds
  • This UK LP plays about as quietly as any we have heard - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • 5 Stars: "David Bowie returned to relatively conventional rock & roll with Scary Monsters, an album that effectively acts as an encapsulation of all his '70s experiments. Reworking glam rock themes with avant-garde synth flourishes, and reversing the process as well, Bowie creates dense but accessible music throughout Scary Monsters."

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
You're Gonna Get It!

  (Item #: pettyyoure_1810) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • A solidly hard rockin' copy that rated seriously good grades of Double Plus (A++) on both sides - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Rich and open with a killer bottom end, musically it's surely the best record Tom Petty ever made - a late '70s Rock Classic
  • Three of Petty's best songs are on this one - Restless, I Need To Know and Listen To Her Heart - and they sound amazing
  • "Overall, the current LP boasts an impressive stylistic cohesiveness with its predecessor, but what makes the album exciting are the fresh hints of openness and expansion just beneath the surface. The rhythms are a bit looser, and there's a new emphasis on Petty's rough, driving, rock & roll guitar in the mix." Rolling Stone

Famous Blue Raincoat

  (Item #: warnefamou_1810x) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • This pressing of Jennifer Warnes' Must Own Masterpiece boasts very good Hot Stamper sound on both sides
  • QUIET vinyl for this title - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - they don't come any cleaner than this
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Warnes wisely took a tougher, more contemporary approach to the arrangements than such past Cohen interpreters as Judy Collins used to. Where other singers tended to geld Cohen's often disturbingly revealing poetry, Warnes, working with the composer himself and introducing a couple of great new songs, matched his own versions..."

  (Item #: doorssoftp_1810_1) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With seriously good Hot Stamper sound on both sides and quiet vinyl, this copy is going to be hard to beat at this price
  • The only copies that ever qualify as Hot Stampers are the original rare Gold Labels and these on the early Big Red E Elektras
  • Full of great songs including Touch Me, Runnin' Blue, Wild Child and the amazingly trippy extended Soft Parade suite
  • "Much like a true “parade” of an English fugue, the song morphs from Morrison’s a capella sermon-like intro to a Baroque ballad to a show tune-like section to the long rock outro, the music masterfully following the flowing, stream of consciousness lyric." Hell yeah!

Our Price: $149.99

  • Outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides, making this one of the more enjoyable copies we've heard in quite a while
  • It's not easy to find copies that get both the quieter, acoustic material and the big, rockin' Crazy Horse stuff right, but this one did
  • With some fairly quiet passages of music, both sides play about as well as the record ever does - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • 5 stars: "His strongest collection since Tonight's the Night, its obvious antecedent was Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home, and, as Dylan did, Young divided his record into acoustic and electric sides while filling his songs with wildly imaginative imagery."
