Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding copy with all four sides earning Double Plus (A++) grades and playing about as quietly as these good, clean originals ever do

  • 4 1/2 stars: "Unlike a lot of other "coffee table"-type rock releases of the era, such as Woodstock and The Concert for Bangladesh, people actually listened to Mad Dogs & Englishmen -- most of its content was exciting, and its sound, a veritable definition of big-band rock with three dozen players working behind the singer, was unique."

  • "Live Wire/Blues Power is one of Albert King's definitive albums. Recorded live at the Fillmore Auditorium in 1968, the guitarist is at the top of his form throughout the record — his solos are intense and piercing... he makes Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" dirty and funky and wrings out all the emotion from "Blues at Sunrise.""

E.C. Was Here

  (Item #: claptecwas_1910_1) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This outstanding Dutch import pressing boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last
  • Forget the dubby domestic pressings - here is the energy, the dynamic power, the low end whomp, and the Clapton-live-in-your-listening-room presence you've never experienced on the album before, guaranteed
  • "E.C. Was Here makes it clear that Clapton was and always would be a blues man. The opening cut, "Have You Ever Loved a Woman," clearly illustrates this, and underlines the fact that Clapton had a firm grasp on his blues guitar ability, with some sterling, emotionally charged and sustained lines and riffs... [the album] remains an excellent document of the period."

  • "... if it doesn't capture a historically significant tour, as Hard Rain did with the Rolling Thunder Revue, this is a better record all the same, capturing a working band -- a working band featuring ex-Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, no less -- on a pretty good night. ...it's a good, solid live album, his best live album since Before the Flood..."

  • 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."

  • Rich, smooth, and above all Tubey Magical, here is the ideal sound for this very special live date
  • 4 1/2 stars: Davis himself has never played with more intensity and muscularity on record than he does here. He is absolutely fierce ... an underappreciated group because of its relatively short life, but as evidenced here, the bandmembers swung fast and hard and never looked back. Miles fans will need both [Friday and Saturday Night] to fully appreciate how special this engagement with this particular band was."

  • "Cut from the same cloth as Wells’ classic Hoodoo Man Blues LP from the same period, It’s My Life, Baby! captured the Junior Wells-Buddy Guy team in great form, both in the studio and live at Pepper’s Lounge on 43rd Street. This album tends a bit more towards slow blues, including a rare example of Wells’ chromatic harmonica playing on ‘Slow, Slow,’ but there are fine uptempo pieces..."
