Cat Stevens
Catch Bull At Four

(UK Island)

  (Item #: stevecatch_1902_1907_12) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides, this very specific UK pressing is absolutely amazing - the vinyl has issues though
  • Bigger, more dynamic, more lively, more present and just plain more EXCITING than anything we heard - that's why it won our shootout
  • This British pressing with the right stamper can show you the sweeter, tubier Midrange Magic that we is the hallmark of all the best Cat Stevens' recordings
  • "Though some of the lyrics retain Cat’s fanciful imagery... he shows a new emotional directness, especially on side two, the albums "down" side. This is reflected in Cat’s singing, which becomes more assured and more emotive with each album."

Our Price: $129.99

  • An outstanding Island pressing with Double Plus (A++) sound for King Crimson's jazzy followup to their groundbreaking debut - the genesis of Prog Rock in fact

Spandau Ballet
True

  (Item #: spandtrue_1912) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • Surprisingly rich and natural - dare we say Analog? - sound on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • These early British sides came out close to the very top in our shootout, with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) grades
  • Forget the dubby domestic pressings and whatever dead-as-a-doornail Heavy Vinyl record they're making these days - hear is the Tubey Magic, size and energy of this wonderful Brit Pop album
  • "... a set of tunes aimed squarely at the charts. The one that succeeded most spectacularly, of course, was the title cut, a glossily-updated Motown-style ballad that became one of the decade's biggest hits -- aided by a video that cast singer Tony Hadley as a young Frank Sinatra, crooning about the sound of his soul."

Neil Young
Hawks and Doves

Our Price: $149.99

  • An exceptional pressing with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound on the first side and a solid Double Plus (A++) side two - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • The trick on this album is to find rich, smooth, edge-free sound, and this copy delivers those qualities like nothing else we played all day
  • "Hawks and Doves has a homey feel. "Little Wing," bare and haltingly lyrical with its miked harp and unaccompanied acoustic, is simpler than anything on the folky Comes a Time, and the rest of the music is defined by Ben Keith's laconic dobro and steel and Rufus Thobodeaux's sawing fiddle."

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Long After Dark

  (Item #: pettylonga_1912) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides of this copy of the band's fifth studio album - reasonably quiet vinyl too
  • Rich and full-bodied with tight bass, and brimming with Petty's unique brand of straight ahead rock and roll, best exemplified by the radio smash You Got Lucky
  • Rolling Stone raves "Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers play a finely crafted brand of meat-and-potatoes rock. They shudder to a stop for the occasional ballad or showy guitar figure, but the next surging chorus is never far away. They've been honing that sound for five albums now, and Petty has gradually hoisted himself into the company of such masterful travelers of Route 66 as Seger and Springsteen. ...overall, Long after Dark is Petty's most accomplished record."

Centerfield

  (Item #: fogercente_1912) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • An excellent copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - exceptionally quiet vinyl too!
  • Here's the midrange magic that’s surely missing from whatever 180g reissue has been made from the tapes (or, to be clear, a modern digital master copied from who-knows-what-tapes)
  • "... a clutch of terrific songs: that giddy ode to his beloved game, the equally sunny rocker “Rock and Roll Girls,” the snappy Sun tribute “Big Train from Memphis,” the gently swaying “I Saw It on TV,” the rip-roaring “I Can’t Help Myself”... and, of course, “The Old Man Down the Road,” a callback to CCR’s spooky swamp rock so successful that Saul Zaentz, the then-president of Fantasy, sued John for plagiarizing himself... a cheerful, glorious comeback."

  • Arguably the best of the solo CSN albums - a founding member of our Top 100 Rock and Pop List and, with grades like these, a True Demo Disc
  • 4 1/2 stars: "From the soaring "I Used to Be a King" through the gossamer "Simple Man" to the wah-wah-laden "Military Madness," the record is filled with gorgeous melodies, flawless singing, and lyrical complexities that hold up decades later."

  • The Big Rock sound comes courtesy of Chris Thomas' production and Bob Clearmountain's mix
  • "Kick is an impeccably crafted pop tour de force, the band succeeding at everything they try. Every track has at least a subtly different feel from what came before it; INXS freely incorporates tense guitar riffs, rock & roll anthems, swing-tinged pop/rock, string-laden balladry, danceable pop-funk, horn-driven '60s soul, '80s R&B, and even a bit of the new wave-ish sound they'd started out with."

  • This one gets the heart of the music right - the lad's voices - and that's what makes The Beatles FUN to listen to
  • 5 stars: "All of the disparate influences on their first two albums had coalesced into a bright, joyous, original sound, filled with ringing guitars and irresistible melodies. A Hard Day's Night is where the Beatles became mythical, but this is the sound of Beatlemania in all of its giddy glory. Decades after its original release, its punchy blend of propulsive rhythms, jangly guitars, and infectious, singalong melodies is remarkably fresh."

  • 4 Stars: "...there are no bad songs and the best moments here -- two bona fide party anthems in "Dance the Night Away" and "Beautiful Girls," songs that embody everything the band was about -- are lighter, funnier than anything on the debut, showcases for both Diamond Dave's knowing shuck and jive and Eddie's phenomenal gift, so natural it seems to just flow out of him. At this point, it's hard not to marvel at these two frontmen, and hard not to be sucked into the vortex of some of the grandest hard rock ever made."

  • "As 'Domino' opens the album with a show of strength, 'Street Choir' closes it with a burst of both musical and poetic energy which is not only better than anything else on the album but may well be one of Van's two or three finest songs." Rolling Stone

Creedence Clearwater Revival
Pendulum

  (Item #: creedpendu_1910) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding pressing of Pendulum with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Big, lively, open and clear with Tubey Magical richness - just the right sound for CCR
  • 4 stars: "John Fogerty spent time polishing the production, bringing in keyboards, horns, even a vocal choir. 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."

Procol Harum
Broken Barricades

  (Item #: procobroke_1711_4_10) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Excellent sound throughout and the first copy to hit the site in many years, earning Double Plus (A++) sonic grades or BETTER on both sides
  • Looking for some proggy music that falls somewhere between Jethro Tull and Supertramp, with sonic credentials to match the recordings of those very well-recorded bands? Well, look no further
  • This early UK press is full of the Tubey Magic and studio space that makes the band's recordings the joy they are to play on a heavily-tweaked audiophile rig
  • "Simple Sister... is truly glorious, with Robin Trower's frightening lead guitar work juxtaposed nicely against a wonderful string arrangement."

Badfinger
Straight Up

  (Item #: badfistrai_1904_10) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A KILLER copy with Double Plus sound (A++) or BETTER on both sides - if you choose to own only one Badfinger album, make it this one
  • Clean, clear and dynamic with real studio space and transparency, this is the way to hear the band's masterpiece - reasonably quiet vinyl too
  • The sound here just JUMPS out of the speakers, which is exactly what the best copies of the album are supposed to (but rarely) do
  • 4 1/2 stars: "This fine songwriting, combined with sharp performances and exquisite studio craft, make Straight Up one of the cornerstones of power-pop, a record that proved that it was possible to make classic guitar-pop after its golden era had passed."

In The Right Place

  (Item #: drjohinthe_1904_6_10) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • You'll find outstanding Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound from first note to last on this superb pressing - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Clean and clear and open are nice qualities to have, but lively and full are harder to come by on this record - this pressing has it all
  • We don't know of any other Dr. John album with sound remotely as good, and the modern albums of his we've played were just awful
  • 4 1/2 Stars: "Dr. John finally struck paydirt here and was certainly In the Right Place. With the hit single "Right Place Wrong Time" bounding up the charts, this fine collection saw many unaware listeners being initiated into New Orleans-style rock."

Welcome to the Canteen

  (Item #: traffwelco_1910) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it on this UK copy of the band's first live album
  • Forget the dubby domestic pressings and whatever crappy Heavy Vinyl record they're making these days - these imports are the only way to fly
  • 4 stars: "... the playing was exemplary, and the set list was an excellent mixture of old Traffic songs and recent Mason favorites. "Dear Mr. Fantasy" got an extended workout, and the capper was a rearranged version of Steve Winwood's old Spencer Davis Group hit "Gimme Some Lovin'." ...Welcome to the Canteen's status as only a semi-legitimate offering was emphasized by the release of The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys. But that doesn't make it any less appealing as a summing up of the Winwood/Mason/Traffic musical world."

Renaissance

  (Item #: renairenai_1910) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A killer copy of the band's debut album, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound 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."

  • Huge, spacious and detailed, with the Tubey Magic of a fresh tape, this is the way to hear Sgt. Pepper in all its analog glory, not remixed and not remastered
  • Most pressings - especially the new ones - have nothing approaching the Tubey Magic, space and energy of this LP
  • A Better Records Top 100 - "It's possible to argue that there are better Beatles albums, yet no album is as historically important as this."

  • Produced by John Lennon, Nilsson's partner in crime, it's a really fun album, with an appealingly ragged and spontaneous vibe
  • "It may not be as wild as the lost weekend itself, but it couldn't have been recorded at any other time and remains a fascinating aural snapshot of the early days of 1974."
