Pink Floyd
Animals

  (Item #: pinkfanima_1907_11) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • An outstanding vintage UK copy with Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it from first note to last - exceptionally quiet vinyl too (for the most part)
  • Forget the dead-as-a-doornail Heavy Vinyl - only these Brits have the Tubey Magical Midrange that lets Pink Floyd come alive
  • "Of all of the classic-era Pink Floyd albums, Animals is the strangest and darkest, a record that's hard to initially embrace yet winds up yielding as many rewards as its equally nihilistic successor, The Wall. Animals is all extended pieces, yet it never drifts -- it slowly, ominously works its way toward its destination. For an album that so clearly is Waters', David Gilmour's guitar dominates thoroughly ...it surges with bold blues-rock guitar lines and hypnotic space rock textures."

The Moody Blues
A Question of Balance

  (Item #: moodyquest_1910_1) 

Our Price: $79.99

  • A Hot Stamper UK pressing of A Question Of Balance with exceptionally quiet vinyl
  • Includes the big hit "Question," one of the all time greats by the band, which sounds fantastic here of course
  • "And the Tide Rushes In'' is one of the prettiest psychedelic songs ever written, a sweetly languid piece with some gorgeous shimmering instrumental effects. The surprisingly jagged opening track, 'Question,' became a popular concert number as well as a number two single. Graeme Edge's 'Don't You Feel Small' and Justin Hayward's 'It's Up to You' both had a great beat, but the real highlight here is John Lodge's 'Tortoise and the Hare,' a fast-paced number that the band used to rip through in concert with some searing guitar solos by Hayward."

He provided a lush, comfy finish to the album that made it particularly suited for living-room listening and the FM airwaves... Every track on this album has been carefully thought, arranged, and performed to perfection..."

Yes
Close To The Edge

  (Item #: yes__close_1906) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Two killer earning seriously good Double Plus (A++) grades - these early pressings make sense of this challenging music
  • An incredibly complex recording, with huge organs, light-speed changes and an abundance of multi-tracked parts
  • A recording that will push even the highest quality, most heavily tweaked stereo to its limits - if you can play this record good and loud, you can play anything
  • 5 stars: "Close to the Edge represented the musical, lyrical, and sonic culmination of all that Yes had worked toward over the past five years. In 1972, Close to the Edge was a flawless masterpiece."

Styx
Pieces Of Eight

  (Item #: styx_piece_1905) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • An outstanding copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish
  • Here is the kind of sound we want on our ELP, Yes and Queen-like multi-layered Proggy Pop Rock - big, full-bodied and lively
  • 4 stars: "Styx's feisty, straightforward brand of album rock is represented best by 'Blue Collar Man,' an invigorating keyboard and guitar rush... reaching number 21, with the frolicking romp of 'Renegade' edging in at number 16 only six months later... the rest of the album includes tracks that rekindle some of Styx's early progressive rock sound, only cleaner. Tracks like 'Sing for the Day,' 'Lords of the Ring,' and 'Aku-Aku' all contain slightly more complex instrumental foundations..."

  • Emerson admitted that Tarkus was one of his favorite albums, "not least because the title track has taken on a life of its own."
  • "Tarkus is a thoroughly written, focused piece of music. It remains among the Top Ten classic tracks in progressive rock history..."
