1999

  (Item #: princ1999_1909) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • A wonderful early vintage vinyl pressing with Hot Stamper sound or BETTER on all four sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • 5 stars: "Prince constructed an album dominated by computer funk, but he didn't simply rely on the extended instrumental grooves to carry the album -- he didn't have to when his songwriting was improving by leaps and bounds... Sure, Prince stretches out a bit too much over the course of 1999, but the result is a stunning display of raw talent, not wallowing indulgence."

Anita Baker
Rapture

  (Item #: bakerraptu_1907) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • This quiet-storm classic earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades for sound on both sides and plays on exceptionally quiet vinyl to boot
  • Rapture is one of the best sounding recordings from the era - with all due respect to Whitney Houston, if I could have only one album of '80s soulful female vocals, it would have to be this one
  • Key to the sound is richness and Tubey Magic, along with strong midrange presence, and on this Super Hot Stamper you get all three
  • 5 stars: "Rapture gave Baker one moving hit after another, including 'Sweet Love,' 'Caught up in the Rapture,' 'Same Ole Love,' and 'No One in This World.'"

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it from first note to last on this 1968 pressing, BB King's fourteenth studio album

  • 4 1/2 stars: "Featuring brassy arrangements by Johnny Pate, it presents King's sound at its fullest without sacrificing any of his grit or sophisticated swing ... the material is very strong throughout."

Our Price: $99.99

  • An outstanding early Atco pressing with Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER from start to finish - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Richness and plenty of tight bass are key to bringing the rhythmically challenging music of New Orleans to life, and here there is plenty of both
  • Forget whatever dead-as-a-doornail Heavy Vinyl they're making - for Tubey Magic and energy, this is the only way to go
  • "As in In the Right Place, Mac has taken advantage of the specialized production talents of Allen Toussaint (at Toussaint's own Sea-Saint Studios in New Orleans), and has again used the fabled New Orleans band The Meters as his studio group. Each of the 12 cuts on the LP has been well-conceived, clearly thought-out, and reveals a new level of musical depth for the doctor."

  • An excellent copy, with strong Double Plus (A++) grades throughout, on vinyl that's exceptionally QUIET for this notoriously noisy album
  • There's Tubey Magic, sweetness and spaciousness all over this recording - when it all comes together on Where Is The Love, you won't believe how good it sounds
  • One of our favorite duet albums, Flack and the woefully underrated Soul Man Donny Hathaway are in top form here
  • Allmusic raves: "A duet classic, and perhaps the most popular album Roberta Flack made. 'Where Is the Love' dominated urban contemporary radio for almost the entire year, while 'You've Got a Friend' was just as influential..."

  • It's incredibly difficult to find big, bold, lively sound like this for any Lou Rawls title, but here it is!

For new listeners trying to get a feel of what the blues is all about, I'm Ready and its bookends are the albums to start with. Once you experience a taste of Muddy Waters, you'll be ready for more."

  • Big, full and lively, with a solid bottom end and excellent clarity - this is the sound you want for Picture Book
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The band finds a steady R&B groove reminiscent of '60s Stax house band the MG's, and, as with the MG's, it's all in the service of a big-voiced soul singer, in this case a British redhead."

  (Item #: wondefulfi_1807_1906) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • This pressing of the classic 1974 album from Stevie Wonder boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides
  • Finding the right balance between Tubey Magical Richness and Transparency is the trick, and we think this copy strikes that balance well
  • Boogie On Reggae Woman and You Haven't Done Nothing were the big hits but the other tracks on the album are where the real Stevie Wonder MAGIC can be found
  • 4 1/2 stars [but we give it 5]: "The songs and arrangements are the warmest since Talking Book, and Stevie positively caresses his vocals on this set, encompassing the vagaries of love, from dreaming of it ("Creepin'") to being bashful of it ("Too Shy to Say") to knowing when it's over ("It Ain't No Use")."

  • The stereo sound here is Tubey Magical, lively and clear, with three-dimensionality that will fill your listening room from wall to wall
  • "The high level of creativity in play here isn't obvious on a cursory listen, since a lot of the tracks favor the same sort of midtempo blues shuffle, but a closer listen reveals a stunning guitarist who plays the blues with a jazzman's soul.. when he cuts loose a little on guitar, the sparks fly with elegant tension."
