  • With two excellent Double Plus (A++) sides, this was one of the better copies of B.B.'s 1968 Classic that we heard in our most recent shootout - mostly quiet vinyl too

  • Smoother, more musical, with more top end extension and more weight down below, this is the way to hear B.B. when he was still in his prime
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Featuring brassy arrangements by Johnny Pate (who also worked with many prominent Chicago soul acts during the '60s), it presents King's sound at its fullest without sacrificing any of his grit or sophisticated swing. No famous classics here, but the material is very strong throughout. "

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.""

  • Real resolution to the sound, not the opacity and blur you would expect from a greatest hits compilation
  • Exceptionally quiet vinyl throughout - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - they didn't press them any quieter
  • "This summarizes their first four albums perfectly, adding the singles "Hot Fun in the Summertime," "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)," and "Everybody Is a Star," possibly the loveliest thing they ever recorded... Greatest hits don't come better than this -- in fact, music rarely does."

Diana Ross and the Supremes
Let The Sunshine In

  (Item #: supreletth_1902) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • A stunning copy of this exceptionally well recorded album - it earned Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades or very close to them on both sides
  • We would love to do more Supremes records, but we've had a devilishly hard time finding copies of their earlier albums that sound as big, rich and smooth as this one does
  • Unusually quiet vinyl throughout - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus
  • "The album is still solid listening 40-plus years later, with three hit singles present to help drive sales. Ross is in excellent form throughout, and the arrangements reach for the lush side of soul, which would become her trademark as a solo artist."

  (Item #: rawlscarry_1803_1807) 

Our Price: $69.99

  • An excellent sounding copy with solid Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides
  • About as quiet as they come -- Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • "Rawls got a mild hit from this album with a fine rendition of "On Broadway," but otherwise, it was another example of everything clicking except nothing sold. The production and arrangements were perfectly tailored to his voice, the songs were good, and Rawls sounded confident, assertive, and soulful."
