Our Price: $129.99

  • With a solid Double Plus (A++) side one and a side two that's right up there with it, this outstanding UK pressing of Russell's debut release has much to recommend it

  • 4 1/2 stars: "Leon Russell never quite hit all the right notes the way he did on his eponymous debut. He never again seemed as convincing in his grasp of Americana music and themes, never again seemed as individual, and never again did his limited, slurred bluesy voice seem as ingratiating."

  • "With their ear-shatteringly loud guitars and sweet melodies, Cheap Trick unwittingly paved the way for much of the hard rock of the next decade, as well as a surprising amount of alternative rock of the 1990s, and it was At Budokan that captured the band in all of its power."

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding sounding copy of the band's first A&M release, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Big, balanced, lively and musical, these two sides had better sound than much of what we heard in our most recent shootout
  • ""Equinox" would prove to be the last album from the original lineup of Styx. This would also be the band's first album for major label A&M and probably the album where the band really developed their signature sound, a mix of progressive rock, straight ahead pop, and arena style rock. "Equinox" is a must own album for Styx fans and remains one of the band's best works." Amazon Reviewer

  • "Three hit singles spun off the record, and most of the other tracks could have followed suit; it says much for Sheet Music's staying power that, no matter how many times the album is reissued, it has never lost its power to delight, excite, and set alight a lousy day."

"Born to Be Wild," their signature tune, has aged amazingly well. Aside from the song's power and performance, its engineering and production is stellar. This goes for most of Steppenwolf's catalog as well."

Renaissance

  (Item #: renairenai_1705_1903) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A killer copy and the first to hit the site in three years - Double Plus (A++) or better on both sides
  • This is an outstanding recording. And why shouldn't it be? It's engineered by Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin II and many more)
  • "The original group's debut album was a then-groundbreaking meld of progressive rock with classical and jazz influences... [it's] far druggier than the later group in its ambience (cofounders Keith Relf and Jim McCarty were the heavily psychedelic half of the final lineup of the Yardbirds, which made them anathema to Jimmy Page), but vocalist Jane Relf had a striking individual style, and the classical influence was unique for its time."

  • "It wasn’t remotely a sequel to Purple Rain. On first listen, it was instantly clear that the album was a dramatic left-turn, with none of the flashy guitar and few of the pop hooks. The sound was bright and sweet, as opposed to low-end raunch. If Prince had streamlined and rocked up his approach for global domination, now he was creating something more intimate, cerebral, and challenging... a brave and deeply personal project, exploring sounds and ideas that were almost shocking coming from a pop icon at his peak."

His songs became self-consciously serious and tighter, working with the aesthetic of the rock underground — Pendulum was constructed as a proper album, contrasting dramatically with CCR's previous records, all throwbacks to joyous early rock records where covers sat nicely next to hits and overlooked gems tucked away at the end of the second side."

  • Tull's best album? It gets my vote, and this copy will make the case if you turn it up good and loud
  • "Stand Up! has great textural interest, due, in part, to a more sophisticated recording technique, in part to the organ, mandolin, balalaika, etc., which Anderson plays to enrich each song. The band is able to work with different musical styles, but without a trace of the facile, glib manipulation which strains for attention."

Songs From the Big Chair is one of the finest statements of the decade."

  • This early pressing earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) sonic grades - this is a Royal Scam with energy and drive
  • This copy of The Dan's hard-rockin' classic from 1976 has the right sound for this music - rich and meaty, with powerful rhythmic energy
  • "Drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie lashes out the rolling grooves on most of the nine tracks, establishing the album's anxious feel, and Larry Carlton's jaw-dropping guitar work provides a running commentary to Fagen's strangulated vocals... These are not the sort of Steely Dan songs favored by smooth-jazz stations."

Originally released in 1982, the album chronicles the growth of the band, both stylistically and personnel-wise... The excitement of this material is palpable, and the muscular band rips into these tunes with more power than the originals in most cases... arguably one of their finest releases."
