  • Live-in-Your-Listening-Room sound throughout, guaranteed miles beyond any copy you've ever heard - and in stereo, because the best sounding copies always are

  • 5 stars: "Dylan had not only changed his sound, but his persona, trading the folk troubadour for a streetwise, cynical hipster ... it proved that rock & roll needn't be collegiate and tame in order to be literate, poetic, and complex."

  • If you want to hear the warmth, size and energy of the tape, this vintage LP is the way to go
  • "Gabor Szabo's quintet featuring Jimmy Stewart was one of the guitarist's very best units. Live performances like this, recorded at Boston's Jazz Workshop, document some of the excitement the group stirred in 1967-1968. The playing seems inspired, and the interplay within the group is something to behold..."

  • 5 stars: "[A] recording artist's demos of new songs often come off better than the more polished versions later worked up in a studio. But Bruce Springsteen was the first person to act on that theory, when he opted to release the demo versions of his latest songs, recorded with only acoustic or electric guitar, harmonica, and vocals, as his sixth album, Nebraska"

  • "Melting Pot could be the most well-realized of all the albums by Booker T. & the M.G.'s, a smooth and soulful, yet expansive 35 minutes of all originals..."

  • Richer and more Tubey Magical than just about any release from the '80s I can think of

  • 4 1/2 stars: "David Gilmour released his second solo venture in 1984, following the apparent dissolution of Pink Floyd. He had released a record on his own in 1978, but About Face is much more accessible. The songs show a pop sensibility that Pink Floyd rarely was concerned with achieving. About Face is a well-honed rock album that is riveting from beginning to end."

  • For musical, un-hyped acoustic guitars and vocals, the sound of this album is tough to beat in Dylan's catalog
  • The better copies are rich, warm, tubey and full-bodied - in other words, they are exactly what's good about vintage analog
  • 5 stars: "...it's an affecting, unbearably poignant record, not because it's a glimpse into his soul, but because the songs are remarkably clear-eyed and sentimental, lovely and melancholy at once. Dylan made albums more influential than this, but he never made one better."

  • Wall to wall, floor to ceiling, room-filling All Tube Radio Recorders Studio sound like nothing you have ever heard
  • One of Ellington's most enjoyable classic collaborations with Billy Strayhorn
  • "All in all, it's one of Ellington's most focussed large-scale efforts... It ends on a swinging Ray Nance solo (on violin, yet!), miles away from the politesse of Grapelli. I've heard only one other violinist (and not a jazz violinist, surprisingly) swing this hard."

  • These sides are wonderful, especially compared to most of what we played - they're clear and full-bodied, with strong energy and present, breathy vocals
  • 5 stars: "An astonishing advance even from the remarkable promise of Greetings; the unbanded three-song second side in particular was a flawless piece of music. Musically and lyrically, Springsteen had brought an unruly muse under control and used it to make a mature statement... He would later make different albums, but he never made a better one. The truth is, The Wild, The Innocent & the E Street Shuffle is one of the greatest albums in the history of rock & roll."

  • These sides are rich, Tubey Magical, balanced and natural - exceptionally quiet vinyl too, one of the quietest copies we played all day
  • The tonality of Sinatra's voice is right on the money, and the brass - so key to these big group sessions - is every bit as good
  • "Sinatra's Swingin' Session is a fast, driving album, the speediest and hardest swing collection Frank Sinatra ever recorded. Sinatra performed the songs twice as fast as was expected; consequently, it's one of his jazziest swing sets, with the musicians spitting out energetic, forceful solos and providing tough, gutsy support."

While the music lost most of the gritty edge of the original AC lineup, [it] remains Alice's best solo effort -- while some tracks stray from his expected hard rock direction, there's plenty of fist-pumping rock to go around."

  • "... the producers invited a small group of friends and well-wishers to another Chicago club, London House, for an after-hours session. Vaughan expanded her trio with a quartet of Count Basie titans, including trumpeter Thad Jones and tenor Frank Wess, and... decided to record a set that, in true after-hours fashion, was completely improvised."

  (Item #: harribluek_1909_03) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb sounding copy with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound throughout, making this one of the best copies to hit the site in years!
  • Both of these sides have the kind of rich, natural sound we found on far too few copies and none of the vocal edginess that many EH albums suffer from
  • Surprisingly full-bodied and not overly detailed for a recording from 1979 - they still knew what they were doing then
  • "In response to criticism that her records weren’t country enough, Harris recorded Blue Kentucky Girl, one of her most traditional outings. Relying on a more acoustic sound, the album largely forsakes contemporary pop songs in favor of standard country fare, including the Louvin Brothers' "Everytime You Leave" and Leon Payne's "They'll Never Take His Love from Me." - All Music

  • 4 1/2 stars: "Leon Russell never quite hit all the right notes the way he did on his eponymous debut. He never again seemed as convincing in his grasp of Americana music and themes, never again seemed as individual, and never again did his limited, slurred bluesy voice seem as ingratiating."

  • These early British sides came out close to the very top in our shootout, with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) grades
  • Forget the dubby domestic pressings and whatever dead-as-a-doornail Heavy Vinyl record they're making these days - hear is the Tubey Magic, size and energy of this wonderful Brit Pop album
  • "... a set of tunes aimed squarely at the charts. The one that succeeded most spectacularly, of course, was the title cut, a glossily-updated Motown-style ballad that became one of the decade's biggest hits -- aided by a video that cast singer Tony Hadley as a young Frank Sinatra, crooning about the sound of his soul."

  • 5 stars: "All of the disparate influences on their first two albums had coalesced into a bright, joyous, original sound, filled with ringing guitars and irresistible melodies. A Hard Day's Night is where the Beatles became mythical, but this is the sound of Beatlemania in all of its giddy glory. Decades after its original release, its punchy blend of propulsive rhythms, jangly guitars, and infectious, singalong melodies is remarkably fresh."

  • in 2014, Nick Mason named A Saucerful of Secrets as his favorite Pink Floyd studio album. “I think there are ideas contained there that we have continued to use all the way through our career,” he says. “I think [it] was a quite good way of marking Syd [Barrett]’s departure and Dave [Gilmour]’s arrival. It’s rather nice to have it on one record, where you get both things. It’s a cross-fade rather than a cut.”

  • Somehow the man managed to record and release six studio albums in 1962, with this compilation making a total of seven for the year. Even more remarkable, all seven of them made the Top Ten of the pop charts
  • The music is excellent, as one can see from the track listing. It's hard to go wrong with these later Capitol Sinatra records. They're almost always a fun listen

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..."
