This is the rare art-rock album that excels at both the art and the rock, and it's a pinnacle of the genre because of it."

J.J. Cale
Naturally

  (Item #: cale_natur_1901) 

Our Price: $119.99

  • Excellent sound throughout with both sides earning solid Double Plus (A++) sonic grades or close to them
  • "Cale included a new version of "After Midnight" on the album, but the true meat of the record lay in songs like "Crazy Mama," which became a hit single, and "Call Me the Breeze," which Lynyrd Skynyrd later covered. On these songs and many others on Naturally, Cale effortlessly captured a lazy, rolling boogie that contradicted all the commercial styles of boogie, blues, and country-rock at the time."

Simply Red
Picture Book

  (Item #: simplpictu_1901) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • With a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side one and a side two that's right up there with it, this UK pressing has a lot going for it - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • "Holding Back the Years" may be the best track the band ever recorded, and it probably sounds better here than you ever imagined it could
  • Big, full and lively, with a solid bottom end and excellent clarity - this is the sound you want for Picture Book
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The band finds a steady R&B groove reminiscent of '60s Stax house band the MG's, and, as with the MG's, it's all in the service of a big-voiced soul singer, in this case a British redhead."

Fleetwood Mac
Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac

  (Item #: fleetpeter_1901) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this UK pressing was one of the best we played in our recent shootout
  • Forget whatever Heavy Vinyl imposter is in print - this vintage UK pressing has the kind of Tubey Magical Midrange that those modern LPs barely BEGIN to reproduce
  • The surfaces are as quiet as any we can find on both sides - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • 4 1/2 star: "Fleetwood Mac's debut LP was a highlight of the late-'60s British blues boom. Green's always inspired playing, the capable (if erratic) songwriting, and the general panache of the band as a whole placed them leagues above the overcrowded field..."

  • "Certainly a quantum leap from the organic R&B impressionism of the band's early LPs and the gripping short stories of Making Movies, Love Over Gold is an ambitious, sometimes difficult record that is exhilarating in its successes and, at the very least, fascinating in its indulgences." - Rolling Stone
