Super Hot Stamper

Jefferson Airplane
Crown of Creation

  (Item #: jeffecrown_2003) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • With a nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) side one and a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side two, this copy will be very hard to beat - reasonably quiet vinyl too
  • This may actually be their most well recorded album from the '60s - it's rich, smooth, sweet, open, natural, and very analog sounding
  • We guarantee there is dramatically more presence and energy on this copy than others you've heard, and that's especially true if you made the mistake of buying some Heavy Vinyl LP
  • "The album captured the group's rapidly evolving, very heavy live sound within the confines of some fairly traditional song structures, and left ample room for Slick and Marty Balin to express themselves vocally, with Balin turning in one of his most heartfelt and moving performances..."

White Hot Stamper

Hot Tuna
Hot Tuna

  (Item #: hottuhottu_2005ex) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • With a Triple Plus (A+++) Shootout Winning side two and a side one that's not far behind it, this copy is the best sounding Hot Tuna LP we have ever listed
  • If you like the kind of music Brits such as John Renbourn, Stefan Grossman, Bert Jansch and others were making back in the '60s, this should be right up your alley
  • Live, all acoustic, this is about as far from the Jefferson Airplane as you can get
  • 4 Stars: "Kaukonen remained the accomplished fingerpicking stylist he had been before joining the Airplane, while Casady dispensed with the usual timekeeping duties of the bass in favor of extensive contrapuntal soloing, creating a musical conversation that was unique. The result was less an indulgence than a new direction."

White Hot Stamper

Starship
Knee Deep in the Hoopla

  (Item #: jeffekneed_2003) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • The debut for the band Starship finally arrives on the site with two Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sides and quiet vinyl
  • We guarantee you've never heard this Top Ten hit album from 1985 sound remotely as good as it does here
  • If you want to hear the Tubey Magic, size and energy of the album, a vintage pressing like this one is the only way to do it in our experience
  • Not a hit with the critics, but it does contain two of this band's biggest singles, both of which rocketed all the way to Number One: "We Built This City" and "Sara"

Super Hot Stamper

Jefferson Airplane
After Bathing at Baxter's

  (Item #: jeffeafter_1912) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This original Black Label RCA pressing boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it from first note to last
  • "After Bathing at Baxter's was among the purest of rock's psychedelic albums, offering few concessions to popular taste and none to the needs of AM radio, which made it nowhere remotely as successful as its predecessor, but it was also a lot more daring... indisputably among the more alluring musical experimentation of the period"

Super Hot Stamper

Jefferson Airplane
Surrealistic Pillow

  (Item #: jeffesurre_1912_6) 

Our Price: $129.99

  • This outstanding stereo copy of the band's sophomore release boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it from first note to last
  • It's the rare copy of this '60s Psych Classic that has this kind of freedom from distortion, as well as clarity, openness, and spaciousness
  • An incredibly difficult album to find with audiophile sound, but this copy has the goods and will beat whatever you throw at it
  • 5 stars: "Every song is a perfectly cut diamond ... a groundbreaking piece of folk-rock-based psychedelia that hit — literally — like a shot heard round the world..."

Super Hot Stamper

Paul Kantner/Jefferson Starship
Blows Against The...

  (Item #: kantnblows_1910_4ex) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Paul Kantner's debut solo album finally arrives on the site with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER throughout
  • Forget whatever dead-as-a-doornail Heavy Vinyl record they're making these days - if you want to hear the Tubey Magic, size and energy of this album from 1970, this is the way to go
  • "...the first use of the 'Starship' billing, predating the formation of the group with that name by four years."
  • 4 stars: "Kantner employed often dense instrumentation and complex arrangements, but there were enough hooks and harmonies to keep things interesting. Blows eventually went gold, and it was even nominated for a science fiction award usually reserved for novels."

Super Hot Stamper

Jefferson Airplane
2400 Fulton Street

  (Item #: jeffe2400f_1912) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • These pressings boast Hot Stamper sound on all four sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • If you're looking for good sound, quiet vinyl, and practically all the band's best material, this is the double album for you
  • We, of course, can't say these pressings are competitive with Hot Stampers of the original albums, but the best of them can sound quite good
  • 4 stars: "...all of the essentials are here -- most of Surrealistic Pillow, along with highlights from the surrounding albums up through the end of the group's history and a few odd singles and B-sides that otherwise usually get overlooked."

Super Hot Stamper

Jefferson Starship
Red Octopus

  (Item #: jefferedoc_1907) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • A superb sounding copy with both sides earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades or close to them
  • Big and full-bodied with wonderfully breathy vocals, tons of energy and virtually none of the smear that plagues so many copies
  • 4 1/2 stars: "... there can be little doubt that it was Balin's irresistible ballad "Miracles," the biggest hit single in the Jefferson Whatever catalog, that propelled Red Octopus to the top of the charts, the only Jefferson album to chart that high and the best-selling album in their collective lives."

Jefferson Airplane - 2400 Fulton Street

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: jeffe2400f_2017) 



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

The big selling point of this compilation is that practically all of Surrealistic Pillow is on it it. Any Hot Stamper pressing of that album we offer will clearly sound better. It will surely be priced at many hundreds of dollars. It's a single disc. And there is no question it is going to be noisier.

Jefferson Airplane - After Bathing At Baxter's

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: jeffeafter_2012) 



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

This RCA pressing was a BIG step up from most copies we played. Most copies we've played are too lean down low, which takes a lot of the power out of this crazy psychedelic music. This one gives you more weight down low and good energy, which helps these songs sound the way The Airplane must have intended.

I'm not familiar with the Sundazed pressing, but I would be shocked if it was even in the ballpark with a Super Hot Stamper copy like this one. Is anyone seriously buying their records for sound quality these days?

Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow (Mono)

Sundazed Reviewed

  (Item #: jeffesurre_debunk_sundazed) 



Sonic Grade: C-

Back around 2000 I spent a fair amount of time comparing this pressing with both an RCA 1S Black Label original, two different RCA Orange Label reissues, and the DCC 180 gram pressing. To make a long story short, if you're willing to buy this record for the songs that really sound amazing on it, like "Today", then you should try one.

Do the Choruses of She Has Funny Cars Hold Up?

  (Item #: jeffesurre_depth) 



Presenting another entry in our extensive Listening in Depth series.

Before we get into the sound of Surrealistic Pillow, I'd like to point out that Hot Stampers for this title -- and the shootouts that allow us to find them -- are becoming increasingly rare. I'd be surprised if we can even find enough clean copies to play once a year nowadays. As unfortunate as it may be it is nevertheless a reality. With clean Led Zeppelin RL pressings frequently commanding $1000 and up on ebay, you can be pretty sure we won't have many of those to sell you in the months and years to come either.

Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: jeffesurre_2009) 



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

An OFF THE CHARTS side one with more tubey magic than you probably ever imagined! We always have fun playing a great copy of the psychedelic ’60s masterpiece, because the sound gives you so many of the qualities we love about good ol’ analog. No one’s recording albums any more with this kind of richness, sweetness, and warmth, that’s for sure! Drop the needle on My Best Friend or Today to hear that trippy Sixties San Francisco sound at its best.

We Found a Good Sounding Orange Label Pressing

  (Item #: jeffesurre_2010) 



This QUIET orange label (!) pressing has surprisingly good sound, some of the best sound we have ever heard for that more-often-than-not dismal second label in fact. It actually beat a few of our black label originals, with more tubey magic and less distortion and harshness than we expect from these later pressings.

We always have fun playing this psychedelic ’60s masterpiece. The sound -- problematical as it may be -- gives you so many of the qualities we love about good ol’ analog. No one’s recording albums these days with this kind of richness, sweetness, and warmth, that’s for sure. Drop the needle on My Best Friend or Today to hear that trippy Sixties San Francisco sound at its best.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: jeffesurre_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what you should be listening for when critically evaluating your copy (or ours) of the album.

The best copies of Surrealistic Pillow have three things in common.

1) Low Distortion, 2) Driving Rock and Roll Energy and 3) Plenty of Tubey Magic.

It's the exceedingly rare copy that has all three. The more of each of these qualities any given pressing has, the higher the sonic grades we will award it.

DCC Debunked

  (Item #: jeffesurre_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: D

Sour and opaque, a major disappointment. You can do worse -- hence the D -- but why would you? Just keep buying clean early stereo pressings until you find a good one. The DCC is not worth the vinyl it's pressed on.

A Hall of Shame pressing and another DCC LP debunked.

Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: jeffevolun_2018) 



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

This original RCA Orange Label pressing boasts dramatically better sound than most pressings - this is a very good way to hear this notoriously problematical album. Featuring a host of stellar guest musicians, including Jerry Garcia, David Crosby, and Stephen Stills.
