  • "Arguably the first consistently strong album Fleetwood Mac ever recorded [not true, Kiln House is] ... 1972's Bare Trees is also the album where the band finally defines its post-blues musical personality."

Elvis Presley
Moody Blue

  (Item #: preslmoody_1809_1904-) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With excellent Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides, this is a superb copy of Elvis's 1977 famous Moody Blue album
  • Considering the blue vinyl, this copy plays exceptionally well, Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • Presley's final studio album, released just a month before his death - not his best but there are a number of songs worth hearing here
  • "For all of its slapped-together feel, however, Moody Blue held up. The title song, authored by Mark James (who'd previously written "Suspicious Minds"), was just about as good a single as Elvis released in the 1970s, topping the country charts earlier in 1977; additionally, he did a superb reinterpretation of the George Jones hit "She Thinks I Still Care.""

The songs show a pop sensibility that Pink Floyd rarely was concerned with achieving. About Face is a well-honed rock album that is riveting from beginning to end."

  (Item #: allmaplayi_1904) 

Our Price: $119.99

John Barleycorn Must Die

  (Item #: traffjohnb_1904_1) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two seriously good sides each rating a Double Plus (A++) or BETTER, this copy was one of the better pressings we played in our shootout
  • Both sides have the vintage analog sound we love - rich and smooth, with plenty of Tubey Magic and studio space
  • Arguably their best album, certainly their most groundbreaking, original and involving - Low Spark would rank a close second
  • "...the band sounds utterly grounded. As the grooves percolate effortlessly along, it becomes clear that unity, not any technical skill, is what makes the music levitate."

Steely Dan
The Royal Scam

  (Item #: steelroyal_1904) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • 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."
