  • Rich, spacious and lively, with an open, extended top end - this is the sound you want from Tears for Fears
  • More great songs than practically anything from the '80s - Shout, Everybody Wants To Rule The World and Head Over Heels, just to name a few
  • "It is not only a commercial triumph, it is an artistic tour de force. And in the loping, percolating "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," Tears for Fears perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the mid-'80s while impossibly managing to also create a dreamy, timeless pop classic. Songs From the Big Chair is one of the finest statements of the decade."

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."

Our Price: $69.99

  • You'll find very good Hot Stamper sound and relatively quiet vinyl on both sides of this 10cc masterpiece
  • We regard this as the most well written and produced 10cc album and the best record they ever made
  • Bassist Graham Gouldman calls it "the definitive 10cc album" and he's probably right about that (although we love The Original Soundtrack that came out a year later)
  • "Three hit singles spun off the record, and most of the other tracks could have followed suit; it says much for Sheet Music's staying power that, no matter how many times the album is reissued, it has never lost its power to delight, excite, and set alight a lousy day."

  • A Better Records Top 100 Album and a real sonic blockbuster if you have the system for it

Super Hot Stamper

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."

10cc
10cc

  (Item #: tencctencc_1801_1812) 

Our Price: $69.99

  • With a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side one and a side two that's close to it, this copy was great fun to play
  • The sound is big, lively, clear and present, probably pretty close to what the band was going for
  • 4 stars: "Displaying a command of pop styles and satire, 10cc showed that they are a force to be reckoned with on their first album. Hooks abound, harmonies shine, and instrumentation is dazzling without being overdone. Whether doing loving parodies of the music they grew up with or satirizing contemporary issues, 10cc show themselves to be top-level purveyors of pop on their debut recording."
