Nearly White Hot Stamper

Elvis Costello
Armed Forces

  (Item #: costearmed_1906_9) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two insanely good nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sides, this vintage UK pressing came in just shy of our Shootout Winner and will show you just how good Elvis's Best Recording can sound on vinyl
  • Some of the biggest, boldest rock sound ever recorded, a True Demo Disc, just amazing on a pressing like this
  • 5 Stars and a Better Records Top 100 album - every track is Elvis at this best
  • "In contrast to the stripped-down pop and rock of his first two albums, Armed Forces boasted a detailed and textured pop production... However, the more spacious arrangements -- complete with ringing pianos, echoing reverb, layered guitars, and harmonies -- accent Costello's melodies... It's a dense but accessible pop record and ranks as his third masterpiece in a row."

Elvis Costello - Armed Forces

Our Four Plus Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: costearmed_2009) 



This White Hot Stamper side one was HEAD AND SHOULDERS better than ANY side of ANY other copy we played. We are awarding it our very special "Four Plus" A++++ grade; the sound goes beyond anything we've heard before. It's also one of less than two dozen such records to ever hit the site.

At this point we've easily done more than a thousand Hot Stamper listings, so we are talking in the range of the top one or two percent for sound. Most audiophiles will go their whole lives without hearing a rock record sound this good, considering the tens of thousands of records we've had to buy, clean and play to find the handful of OFF THE CHARTS copies we've reviewed.

Elvis Costello Arrayed His Forces

and Produced His Single Best Sounding Record

  (Item #: costearmed_best) 



We consider Armed Forces to be one of the best sounding rock records ever made, and a top copy is proof enough to back up our claim. The best copies are extremely transparent and silky sounding, but with unbelievably punchy, rock solid bass and drums.

The sound of the rhythm section of this album ranks up there with the very best ever recorded. Beyond that, the musical chops of this band at this time rank with the very best in the history of rock. Steve, Bruce and Pete rarely get the credit they deserve for being one of the tightest, liveliest backing bands ever to walk into a studio or on to a stage.
