Nearly White Hot Stamper (quiet vinyl)

Astrud Gilberto
Windy

  (Item #: gilbewindy_1812_4_9_01) 

Our Price: $199.99
Sale Price: $149.99 (You save $50.00 / 25%)


  • A stunning sounding copy with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound throughout, just shy of our shootout winner - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Forget whatever Heavy Vinyl imposter is in print - this vintage Verve stereo pressing has the kind of High-Rez Tubey-Magical Midrange that will bring Astrud's soft samba music to life in your very own listening room
  • "... Windy nevertheless proves one of Astrud Gilberto's most consistent and sublime efforts, artfully straddling the division between Brazilian bossa nova and American sunshine pop."

Beach Samba

  (Item #: gilbebeach_1910) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding copy of Beach Samba, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER from top to bottom
  • The soundstage is huge, and the overall quality of the recording is big and bold like you will not believe
  • Creed Taylor (the CTI man) produced, Don Sebesky and Deodato did the arrangements, and Val Valentin engineered - what's not to like?
  • "This 1967 Verve LP has the breezy bossa novas and sambas Astrud was famed for, but also a Lovin' Spoonful duet with her young son and some seriously impressive scatting, too." - Amazon

Look To The Rainbow

  (Item #: gilbelookt_1909) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER from first note to last
  • This kind of spacious, warm, rich, Tubey Magical analog sound is gone forever - you have to go back to 1966 to find it

Super Stamper

Stan Getz
Getz Au Go Go

  (Item #: getz_getza_2001) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this pressing will show you just how good our favorite Stan Getz album can sound on vinyl
  • Musically and sonically, this is Must Own jazz, capturing a very special night in a small club
  • A tough album to find with the right sound and decent surfaces, which is the main reason we are rarely able to do this shootout
  • 4 stars: "Highly recommended for all dimensions of jazz enthusiasts." [We would of course give it the full 5 Stars]

Super Hot Stamper

Astrud Gilberto
The Astrud Gilberto Album

  (Item #: gilbeastru_1912ex) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides or close to them, this Van Gelder mastered copy was one of the best we played in our shootout (but the vinyl is iffy at best)
  • The sound here has real texture to the strings and breath to the vocals, key elements if this music is going to work
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The Astrud Gilberto Album was at least as good as Getz/Gilberto (despite what jazz fans say), for several reasons. Gilberto sounded beautiful on a range of material, from the sentimental "Dindi" to the playful "Agua de Beber," and as long as intelligent musicians were playing to her strengths (as they do here), the results were splendid."

Super Hot Stamper

Astrud Gilberto
The Shadow Of Your Smile

  (Item #: gilbeshado_1912) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this early stereo copy is guaranteed to blow the doors off any other pressing of the album you've heard
  • The best early Verve stereo pressings such as this one have the rich Tubey Magic to bring out the intimacy in Astrud's breathy vocal
  • Many of our favorite engineers worked on this album in 1964 & 1965: Bob Simpson, Rudy Van Gelder and Phil Ramone
  • Allmusic customers rate the album 4 Stars: "For her second Verve LP, Astrud Gilberto expanded her range from a raft of Gilberto/Jobim standards to embrace the large and obviously daunting catalogue of classic American pop."

Astrud Gilberto - Beach Samba

Our Shootout Winner from 2019

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The soundstage is huge, and the overall quality of the recording is big and bold like you will not believe. Creed Taylor (the CTI man) produced, Don Sebesky and Deodato did the arrangements, and Val Valentin engineered - what's not to like?

Astrud Gilberto - Gilberto With Turrentine

Reviewed in 2009

  (Item #: gilbegilberto_turrentine_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The music and sound on side two are OFF THE CHARTS! If you’re a fan of Sergio Mendes or Jobim you’re likely to really enjoy this music.

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: gilbelookt_2018) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Astrud Gilberto - The Astrud Gilberto Album

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: gilbeastru_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Minty looking Verve LP has DEMO DISC QUALITY SOUND. It’s airy, open and spacious with a big wide soundfield and excellent clarity. The sound is smooth and sweet with wonderfully textured strings and a killer top end. Sonically this copy is Right On The Money (ROTM) and I can’t imagine it sounding a whole lot better than it does here.

Astrud Gilberto - The Shadow Of Your Smile

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: gilbeshado_2017) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The space is HUGE and the sound so rich. The vocals have dramatically less hardness and the orchestra sounds right for once. Prodigious amounts of Tubey Magic as well, which is key to the best sounding copies. The sound needs weight, warmth and tubes or you might as well be playing a CD.

Astrud Gilberto / Walter Wanderley - A Certain Sadness...

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: gilbecerta_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

LOVELY SOUND AND EXCELLENT MUSIC on this unusually quiet, exceptionally good sounding Verve T-Label LP. We compiled enough of these to do a shootout and this was one of the better copies, earning A++ grades for both sides. It's full of energy with big time immediacy and wonderfully breathy female vocals. The organ sounds gorgeous!

Stan Getz - Getz Au Go Go

Critical Listening Exercise

  (Item #: getz_getza_test) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises.

This album is useful as a test disc. The third track on side 2, The Telephone Song, has a breathy vocal by Astrud, soon followed by Getz's saxophone solo. If those two elements in the recording are in balance, your system is working, tonally anyway.

Stan Getz - Getz Au Go Go

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: getz_getza_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This WHITE Hot Stamper Stan Getz record has the kind of LIVE JAZZ CLUB SOUND that audiophiles like us (you and me) dream of. More importantly, this ain’t no Jazz at Some Pawnshop -- this is THE REAL THING. Stan Getz, Gary Burton, Kenny Burrell and the lovely Astrud Gilberto, the living embodiment of Cool Jazz, are coming to a listening room near you (assuming you have two hundred and fifty bucks you're not doing anything else with).
