Leonard Cohen
New Skin For the Old Ceremony

  (Item #: cohennewsk_2006) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With two nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sides, this copy is close to the BEST we have ever heard, right up there with our Shootout Winner
  • If you're trying recreate a solid, palpable Leonard Cohen singing live in your listening room - sounding just as his did in the studio back in 1974 - these Hot Stamper sides will let you do just that
  • "New Skin for the Old Ceremony may be Leonard Cohen's most musical album, as he is accompanied by violas, mandolins, banjos, and percussion that give his music more texture than usual. The fact that Cohen does more real singing on this album can be seen as both a blessing and a curse -- while his voice sounds more strained, the songs are delivered with more passion than usual."

Our Price: $399.99

  • Superb sound throughout with all six sides of this epic live collection earning nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) grades or close to them - just shy of our Shootout Winner
  • "No record album can replace a live appearance by the Dead — but those who can’t get enough of this exceptional band will be kept busy for a good little while with this one." - Rolling Stone
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The band mixes a bevy of new material with revisitations of back-catalog favorites. Sadly, this European jaunt would be the last of its kind to include the formidable talents and soul of founding member Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, who was in increasingly fragile health. Although few in number, his contributions to Europe '72 are among the most commanding not only of this release, but of his career."

  • Most greatest hits collections are dubby and compressed, but the music here was transferred with care to insure the best fidelity possible
  • "... long-lived as a Grateful Dead primer... [it] remains a good introduction to the band's early -- and arguably best -- work... Skeletons -- for longtime fans -- will always be a great disc for a lazy Sunday afternoon."

  • This record lives or dies by the quality of its Tubey Magical Midrange, a sound modern records rarely begin to reproduce

Our Price: $199.99

  • With outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound on three sides and exceptionally quiet vinyl, this copy of Blonde On Blonde did well in our most recent shootout

  • 5 stars: "Blonde on Blonde is an album of enormous depth, providing endless lyrical and musical revelations on each play... It's the culmination of Dylan's electric rock & roll period — he would never release a studio record that rocked this hard, or had such bizarre imagery, ever again."

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this was one of the better sounding copies we played in our recent shootout
  • We guarantee there is dramatically more richness, fullness and presence on this copy than others you've heard, and that's especially true for whatever godawful Heavy Vinyl pressing is currently being foisted on a much too credulous record buying public
  • "Hideaway is the sixth original studio album by American folk rock trio America, released in 1976. The album was produced by legendary Beatles producer George Martin. The album was a hit in the US, peaking at number 11 on the Billboard album chart and being certified GOLD by the RIAA." - Wikipedia

  • The best material from Pentangle's amazing first six albums, with sound that's full of British Analog Tubey Magic
  • "Pentangling is filled to the brim with some of the finest recordings the British folk movement had to offer..."

Our Price: $149.99

  • Outstanding sound for CSN&Y's classic live double album, with all four sides boasting solid Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it AND exceptionally quiet vinyl
  • The "naked" sound of the real thing - the real voices and the real guitars and the real everything else, in a way that would never happen again
  • Bill Halverson worked his magic, but only the best pressings let his genius shine the way it does here
  • Rolling Stone raves that "Crosby, Stills. Nash, and Young are all performers of unquestionable talent, and mostly because they stay out of each others' way, 4 Way Street must surely be their best album to date."

(UK Island)

  (Item #: stevecatch_1902_1907_12) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides, this very specific UK pressing is absolutely amazing - the vinyl has issues though
  • Bigger, more dynamic, more lively, more present and just plain more EXCITING than anything we heard - that's why it won our shootout
  • This British pressing with the right stamper can show you the sweeter, tubier Midrange Magic that we is the hallmark of all the best Cat Stevens' recordings
  • "Though some of the lyrics retain Cat’s fanciful imagery... he shows a new emotional directness, especially on side two, the albums "down" side. This is reflected in Cat’s singing, which becomes more assured and more emotive with each album."
