Ella & Basie - Ella and Basie!

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: fitzgella_and_basie_2018) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Take it from an Ella fan, you can't go wrong with this one. On the best pressings, the sound is rich and full-bodied in the best tradition of a classic vintage jazz vocal album with big band backup. You could easily demonstrate your stereo with a good copy, but what you would really be demonstrating is music that the listener probably isn't familiar with, and that's the best reason to put on an old record.

Our Price: $169.99

  • 4 1/2 Stars: "Surprisingly enough this 1963 LP was the first time (other than a couple songs) that Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie recorded together. The match-up was so logical that it would be repeated many times over the next 20 years."

  • "Hawks and Doves has a homey feel. "Little Wing," bare and haltingly lyrical with its miked harp and unaccompanied acoustic, is simpler than anything on the folky Comes a Time, and the rest of the music is defined by Ben Keith's laconic dobro and steel and Rufus Thobodeaux's sawing fiddle."

Our Price: $299.99

  • This 360 Label stereo copy boasts outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - and it's QUIET
  • Clean stereo pressings of this album are ridiculously hard to come by these days, not to mention that few copies will sound as good as this one does
  • In the same way that Sgt. Pepper changed music a mere two years later, Highway 61 Revisited left all of Dylan's contemporaries behind, scrambling to keep up with the standard it set
  • "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." - 5 Stars

Imperial Bedroom

  (Item #: costeimper_1710_1807) 

Our Price: $129.99
Sale Price: $99.00 (You save $30.99 / 24%)


  • This early UK pressing earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades for sound - forget the painfully bad domestics, these imports are the only way to go
  • Geoff Emerick engineered, creating a unique sound, a sound which only seems to work if you have the right pressing
  • This dense, darkly serious album contains some of the best songs EC ever wrote - the last of his True Classics
  • Allmusic 5 Stars: "Essentially, the songs on Imperial Bedroom are an extension of Costello's jazz and pop infatuations on Trust. Costello's music is complex and intricate, yet it flows so smoothly, it's easy to miss the bitter, brutal lyrics."
