  (Item #: dylanblood_1902) 

Our Price: $399.99

  • A shootout winning copy of the only Dylan record to make our Top 100 list - this one earned Triple Plus (A+++) grades or close to them on both sides
  • 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 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."

Tom Waits
Closing Time

  (Item #: waitsclosi_1901) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With side one coming in at Double Plus (A++) and a side two that's right there with it, this copy has superb sound from first note to last
  • With exceptional space and clarity to complement the richness of the vintage analog sound, this pressing was on of the better we heard in our recent shootout
  • 'Ol' 55 is the highpoint of the album for us - check out The Eagles version from On The Border to hear their more polished (less-boozy) take on it
  • 4 1/2 Stars: "Tom Waits' debut album is a minor-key masterpiece filled with songs of late-night loneliness. Within the apparently narrow range of the cocktail bar pianistics and muttered vocals, Waits and producer Jerry Yester manage a surprisingly broad collection of styles..."
