LP (Item 20721) Philadelphia International, 1975 — Condition: Used
Gatefold

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

Killer stuff from this legendary Philly instrumental combo – and a lot harder to find in good shape than you might think from the number of copies that were sold in the 70s! Bobby Martin arranged almost every track – and the record's a great example of the kind of lean and mean Philly groove that he had going at the time, a groove that was hard to beat, and hard to copy without sounding silly and overblown. Includes classics like "K-Jee", "MFSB", "TLC", and "Let's Go Disco". (Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Wake Up Everybody
Philadelphia International, 1975. Very Good

Philadelphia International, 1979. Very Good+
The O'Jays keep on going strong – hitting a smooth mellow Philly vibe that takes them away from the style of their mid 70s hits! The sound here is a bit more uptempo than on the previous album So Full Off Love – but the group are still also really using the time to explore their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Night People
ABC, 1978. Sealed
A smoother set than usual for Lee Dorsey – recorded with frequent partner Allen Toussaint, but done in a sweeter, more modern soul style that's a refreshing change from earlier years! (C'mon, you didn't expect Lee to keep hitting the same old chunky grooves – did you?) The shift here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Here Where There Is Love
Scepter, 1967. Very Good
Dionne Warwick's missing from the cover of this album, but the record still managed to be one of her biggest of the 60s – thanks to a near-classic selection of tunes, and sublime arrangements from the mighty Burt Bacharach! There's a confident, mature approach to the record that's arguably ... LP, Vinyl record album
