  • This Columbia 360 label pressing has KILLER Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it on both sides
  • Both sides here are big, full-bodied and present with a solid bottom end and plenty of energy 
  • “Many of these songs have become American classics–“I Walk the Line,” “Get Rhythm,” and “Folsom Prison Blues” being three instantly recognizable numbers… This is another in the numerous sets which serve as helpful introductions into Cash’s voluminous output…” – All Music

This vintage Columbia 360 label pressing has the kind of Tubey Magical Midrange that modern records can barely BEGIN to reproduce. Folks, that sound is gone and it sure isn’t showing signs of coming back. If you love hearing INTO a recording, actually being able to “see” the performers, and feeling as if you are sitting in the studio with the band, this is the record for you. It’s what vintage all analog recordings are known for — this sound. (more…)

  • A great sounding vintage 360 pressing of a legendary live album – this copy earned Double Plus (A++) grades or better on both sides
  • Full, rich, lively and clean – Johnny Cash gets the sonic treatment he deserves here – exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • So many great songs: Wanted Man, I Walk the Line, San Quentin, A Boy Named Sue, Folsom Prison Blues and more
  • 5 stars: “…listen to “A Boy Named Sue,” … rescued by the wild-eyed, committed performance by Cash, where it sounds like he really was set on murdering that son of a bitch who named him Sue. He sounds that way throughout the record… “

We had a blast listening to this album. Cash’s banter between the songs is practically as good as the music itself! (more…)

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

This very nice looking original Columbia Stereo 360 Label LP has that authentic early Johnny Cash sound. We put this through our cleaning process and took a listen. The EQ on his vocals is a little bit brighter than we like but overall the album has LOTS OF TUBEY MAGIC!

“This is an outstanding album of covers of old country songs, from the familiar (Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, George Jones) to lesser-known gems. ” AMG

  • An outstanding copy of this Dylan classic with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last
  • Rich, yet clean, clear and open, with good space around the instruments and tight, note-like bass
  • “Lay Lady Lay,” “To Be Alone With You,” “I Threw It All Away,” “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You,” and the duet with Johnny Cash on “Girl From the North Country” have become country-rock standards
  • 5 stars: “It’s a warm, friendly album, particularly since Bob Dylan is singing in a previously unheard gentle croon — the sound of his voice is so different it may be disarming upon first listen, but it suits the songs.”

This pressing has the kind of Tubey Magical Midrange that modern pressings cannot BEGIN to reproduce. Folks, that sound is gone and it sure isn’t showing any sign of coming back. (more…)
