Across A Crowded Room
Used - LP - 825 421
1985 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. Vinyl & Jacket In Excellent Condition. “Richard Thompson's 1985 Album Across A Crowded Room (His First Album For A Major Label Since Sunnyvista In 1979) Stylistically Picked Up Where His Previous Set, Hand Of Kindness, Had Left Off, And While It Didn't Break Much In The Way Of New Ground, It Also Found Thompson Doing Plenty Of What He Does Best -- Writing Great Songs And Playing A Lot Of Electric Guitar. Across A Crowded Room Takes A Slightly More Subtle Approach Than Hand Of Kindness; The Arrangements Have Been Pared Back A Bit (There Are Fewer Horn Charts, And John Kirkpatrick's Accordion Is Sadly Absent), And Joe Boyd's Production Is Roomier And More Atmospheric, Making The Most Of The Album's Broader Soundscape. But For The Most Part Richard Thompson's Formula Remained The Same Here, And If That Makes It Sound Like He's Just Treading Water, That Might Be The Case For An Artist Less Consistently Remarkable. "When The Spell Is Broken" And "Ghosts In The Wind" Find Thompson Revisiting His Favorite Theme, Love Gone Awry (The Latter Boasting A Beautifully Delicate, Ethereal Arrangement), While "Fire In The Engine Room" And "Little Blue Number" Are Unusually Hard-Rocking Numbers With Thompson Laying Into The Songs Fast And Frantic. And "Love In A Faithless Country" Is A Striking Sketch Of Love Under Difficult Circumstances That Recalls Nothing So Much As George Orwell's 1984. There Aren't Many Musicians Who Could Make An Album As Strong As Across A Crowded Room And Have It Sound Like Business As Usual, But Given The Consistent Strength Of Richard Thompson's Body Of Work, This Set Sounds Fairly Typical ... And Typically Splendid.” AMG - Mark Deming ... more
Bob Dylan At Budokan
Used - LP - PC2 36067
1979 2LP Original In Gatefold With Inner Sleeves. Bob Dylan At Budokan is a live album by Bob Dylan, recorded during his 1978 tour of Japan. The album features Dylan's performances at the Nippon Budokan Hall in Tokyo on February 28 and March 1, 1978. The album features a mix of classic Dylan songs, including "Blowin' in the Wind," "Like a Rolling Stone," and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," as well as some of his lesser-known tracks. The performances on the album are characterized by a more theatrical and upbeat style, with Dylan backed by a large band, complete with backup singers and a brass section. This marked a departure from the folk and acoustic sound that Dylan was known for in the 1960s and 1970s. Bob Dylan At Budokan received mixed reviews upon its release, with some critics criticizing the commercialization of Dylan's sound and others praising the energy and excitement of the live performances. Despite the mixed reception, the album was a commercial success, reaching No. 13 on the US Billboard 200 chart and No. 4 in the UK. It has since become a fan favorite and a representation of the evolution of Dylan's sound and style over the years. ... more

Upstairs At Eric's
Audiophile - New - MOFI 1-020
Sealed, Latest Pressing Of The 2012 Remastered Reissue. "Vince Clarke Can Claim Involvement In Two Stunning Debuts In Only Two Years: Depeche Mode's Speak And Spell And Yaz's Upstairs At Eric's. While Speak And Spell Is, By Far, The More Consistent Record, Upstairs At Eric's Is Wholly More Satisfying, Beating The Depeche Record On Substance And Ambition, And Is Light Years Ahead In Emotion. "Don't Go" And "Situation" Are Absolutely Killer With Clarke's Bubbling Synth And Singer Alison Moyet's Bluesy And Powerful Delivery. They're Both Rightful Dance Floor Staples, And Have Since Undergone Numerous Remixes, Both Official And Bootleg. "Bring Your Love Down (Didn't I)" Is Just As Good A Thumper, Adding A Wonderful Mumbled Bridge That Shows How Much Clarke Enjoyed Messing With Pop Music. The Softer "Only You" Would Have Sounded Silly And Robotic If It Had Appeared On Speak And Spell, But Moyet's Vocals Makes It Bittersweet And Engaging. The Clumsier Experimental Tracks Make Most People Head For The Hits Collection, But To Do So Would Be To Miss The Album's Great Twist. The Loony Tape Loop Of "I Before E Except After C," The Skeletal "Winter Kills," And A Disruptive Phone Call In The Middle Of The Naïve "Bad Connection" Offer Up More Complex And Intimate Moments. Like Its Curious Cover, Upstairs At Eric's Presents A Fractured, Well-Lit, And Paranoid Urban Landscape." AMG Review By David Jefferies. ... more
A Night At The Opera
New Import - 00602547202697
Sealed 2019 EU Import, Half Speed Mastered. This Is A Repress Of The Remastered Reissue From 2015. Comes Housed In An Embossed Jacket. "Queen Were Straining At The Boundaries Of Hard Rock And Heavy Metal On Sheer Heart Attack, But They Broke Down All The Barricades On A Night At The Opera, A Self-Consciously Ridiculous And Overblown Hard Rock Masterpiece. Using The Multi-layered Guitars Of Its Predecessor As A Foundation, A Night At The Opera Encompasses Metal ("Death On Two Legs," "Sweet Lady"), Pop (The Lovely, Shimmering "You're My Best Friend"), Campy British Music Hall ("Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon," "Seaside Rendezvous"), And Mystical Prog Rock ("'39," "The Prophet's Song"), Eventually Bringing It All Together On The Pseudo-operatic "Bohemian Rhapsody." In Short, It's A Lot Like Queen's Own Version Of Led Zeppelin IV, But Where Zep Find Dark Menace In Bombast, Queen Celebrate Their Own Pomposity. No One In The Band Takes Anything Too Seriously, Otherwise The Arrangements Wouldn't Be As Ludicrously Exaggerated As They Are. But The Appeal -- And The Influence -- Of A Night At The Opera Is In Its Detailed, Meticulous Productions. It's Prog Rock With A Sense Of Humor As Well As Dynamics, And Queen Never Bettered Their Approach Anywhere Else." AMG Review By Stephen Thomas Erlewine. ... more

New - LP - 888697 30626 1
2018 Repress With Inner Sleeve. "Bluesy Like It's No One's Business Yet Voluptuously Funky In A Contemporary Way, Adele Rocks Out 19 With A Unique Voice And Gritty Sound That Dazzle Endlessly. Synthesizing Blues, Jazz, Folk, Soul, And Even Electric Pop, Adele Mystifies Through Her Mature Songwriting Skills And Jaw-Dropping Arrangements. As The Album Opens With "Daydreamer," Adele's Illusionary Instrument — Over Minimal Sounds — Engulfs The Listener With A Gorgeous Feeling Of Awe And Wonderment. On "Melt My Heart To Stone" And The Bona Fide Hit "Chasing Pavements," Adele Allows Herself To Soar Over The Strings And Power Her Way Through These Incredible Songs. The Upbeat "Right As Rain" Is Just Wonderful, With Clear Ashford & Simpson Influences Speckled All Over It In An Upbeat Set. Nearly All The Tracks Seem To Have Been Nurtured To Glory Over Months As Labors Of Love. What's Simply Awesome On 19 Is Its Capability To Capture The Listener Through Mere Teasing; Adele Doesn't Shout For Attention, And Doesn't Rely On Anyone But Herself To Prove She's Worth It.” AMG - Mathew Chisling. ... more
Round Room
Colored Vinyl - New - JEMP1107
Sealed 2024 2LP Limited edition, silver-foil numbered gatefold reissue. Pressed on "Round Room Maroon/Stone" coloured vinyl. "Phish reunited unexpectedly late in the summer of 2002. It was a bit of a shock, since their announced hiatus of 2000 seemed at least semi-permanent, yet this didn't have the vibe of a cash-in, even if their respective solo projects of the early 2000s didn't make many waves. The impromptu reunion felt spontaneous, as if the band simply felt like playing again. Certainly, the resulting album, Round Room, feels ramshackle, laid-back, and haphazard. Released mere months after its recording, it doesn't so much sound haphazard as it does unfinished, as if you're eavesdropping on a band rehearsal or even a writing session. Apart from the lovely, understated Farmhouse, Phish albums always meander, so it's nothing new that the focus is fuzzy on Round Room. What's weird is that there's very little shape to the songs. Often, only a bare sketch of a song is discernible, and even those are never played as if that sketch is final. Which all makes for kind of a murky listen and certainly not the cash-in crossover that a publicized reunion of a cult favorite could have been. Unfortunately, it's not particularly interesting, either, since it lacks the spirit of their live improvisations or, say, the layered ambitions of Trey Anastasio's excellent solo album of 2002. It is intermittently fascinating, particularly because this is as unvarnished as any album by a major artist, but instead of revealing a new side of Phish, it just sounds incomplete. Although this is kind of a disappointment, it's also kind of admirable because the band isn't afraid to work out the kinks in public, and it has enough intriguing ideas scattered throughout to suggest that now that this is out of their system, they have a better album ahead of them."
