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

[T]hey had succeeded as artists, using existing elements in an unusual combination to create something new that still managed to be oddly familiar. And that made Talking Heads: 77 a landmark album."

  • An excellent copy with Double Plus (A++) sound from the first note to the last - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Some of the best sound Dave Mason ever managed, so let's give credit where credit is due, to the amazing engineer Al Schmitt
  • If you're a Dave Mason fan this is one of the better albums he's put out and it deserves a place in your collection
  • "The spare, acoustic solo performance of "Can't Stop Worrying, Can't Stop Loving" heard here, for example, makes the undistinguished full-band studio version instantly obsolete. And the live version of "World In Changes" is one of the best pieces of early '70s rock, period."

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.""

David Gilmour
About Face

  (Item #: gilmoabout_1801_1904-) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • An outstanding copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • The sound here is richer and more Tubey Magical than just about any release from the '80s I can think of
  • Wonderful three-dimensional space courtesy of ace engineer James Guthrie (The Wall)
  • "David Gilmour released his second solo venture in 1984, following the apparent dissolution of Pink Floyd. He had released a record on his own in 1978, but About Face is much more accessible. 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."
