Ella Fitzgerald
Sings Cole Porter

  (Item #: fitzgsings_porter_1812) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Amazing sound from start to finish on this Shootout Winning TRIPLE TRIPLE (A+++) copy - this is a Top Ella Title in every way
  • It's nearly impossible to find the album with sound this good that's not beat to death (and even this copy has issues - they all do)
  • Full-bodied, musical, and smooth, with surprisingly spacious orchestral staging - this is just the right sound for the album
  • "The combination of Ella and Porter is irresistible and whether up-tempo or down-tempo, Ella’s three-octave range voice soars effortlessly as she makes each song come to life. It was all helped by the cream of L.A. session men and Buddy Bregman’s arrangement that oozes sophistication way beyond his twenty-four years. It is a perfect record." - Richard Havers

Reworking glam rock themes with avant-garde synth flourishes, and reversing the process as well, Bowie creates dense but accessible music throughout Scary Monsters."

  • 5 stars: "Reckoning runs through a set of ten jangle pop songs that are different not only in sound but in style from the debut. Where Murmur was enigmatic in its sound, Reckoning is clear, which doesn't necessarily mean that the songs themselves are straightforward. Michael Stipe continues to sing powerful melodies without enunciating, but the band has a propulsive kick that makes the music vital and alive... the songwriting is more direct and memorable than before..."

  • Punchy, full and smooth, with the kind of rhythmic energy that brings out the jazzy funk in the music
  • A Better Records Rock and Pop Top 100 album and a true Demo Disc on an exceptional pressing like this
  • 4 1/2 stars: "With Aja, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's obsession with sonic detail and fascination with composition reached new heights. A coolly textured and immaculately produced collection of sophisticated jazz-rock, Aja has none of the overt cynicism or self-consciously challenging music that distinguished previous Steely Dan records ... a shining example of jazz-rock at its finest.

The clear highlight, though, is the lead and title track, "Hobo Flats," which moves at a languid but wonderfully funky pace and establishes a groove as wide as the Mississippi River."

Stand Up

Our Price: $399.99

  • A stunning UK import LP with Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it on both sides and reasonably quiet vinyl
  • This is a True Tull Classic - my favorite by the band - and a VERY tough record to come by with this kind of sound
  • Both of these sides give you richness, Tubey Magic, clarity and resolution few copies can touch - these are the Hot Stampers, folks
  • "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."
