It's a dense but accessible pop record and ranks as his third masterpiece in a row."

  (Item #: ronstdontc_1803_1904-) 

Our Price: $69.99
Sale Price: $49.00 (You save $20.99 / 30%)


  • With Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound on side two and a solid Double Plus (A++) side one, this was one of the better copies we played in our recent shootout
  • The transparency and vocal presence here are wonderful - the piano is solid and Linda's vocals are breathy and heartfelt
  • We love her emotionally powerful interpretations of Desperado, Sail Away and Neil Young's achingly sublime I Believe in You
  • She really belts it out on this album - it's what she does best - but only the best copies allow you to turn up the volume good and loud and let her do her thing
  • Rolling Stone raves it's "the Ronstadt album for which we've been waiting."

Van Morrison
A Sense Of Wonder

  (Item #: morriasens_1809_1904-) 

Our Price: $99.99
Sale Price: $79.00 (You save $20.99 / 21%)


  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides of this early pressing of Morrison's album from 1985
  • This is probably the last domestically pressed record he made that still has the kind of sound we look for in a Hot Stamper
  • "Over the years, Morrison has gathered around him a band that plays, like the best jazz ensembles, with effortless empathy. The group follows him through all his moods and meanderings, from the lilting cadences of "Tore Down à la Rimbaud" and "Ancient of Days" to the stately auguring of "Let the Slave" and the airy, triumphal shimmer of "A New Kind of Man." A Sense of Wonder is serenely uplifting. With astonishing commitment and profound belief, Van Morrison continues to push forward into the mystic."
