LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Sweet funky soul from the great Bobby Womack – a record that mixes Bobby's roots with some of the more righteous modes he picked up on Across 110th Street – blended here in a style that's completely sublime! The record was one of Womack's first to be entirely recorded on the west coast – and has these core grooves that come from the great Wah Wah Watson on guitar and Sonny Burke on keyboards – both players who bring in sharp edges, but can also lay back in a groove as well – helping Bobby perfectly balance funky impulses and mellower moments throughout. There's a sophistication here that really shows the continuing growth of Womack as a musical visionary – and titles include "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", "Daylight", "Love Ain't Something You Can Get For Free", "I Feel A Groove Coming On", and versions of "I Wish It Would Rain" and "Something You Got". (Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and unglued seams.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Like the first volume, this isn't so much a collection of "oldies" so much as it is a tasty set of hard to find numbers from the United Artists label – including some killer soul and jazz numbers that are pretty darn hard to track down on LP. The record features two great ones from ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1976. Very Good
The title track to this one – "Right Back Where We Started From – was a real 70s monster, hitting big on AM radio and the dancefloors, and still kind of a guilty pleasure for us these days. The rest of the record's a bit spotty – but there's a few nice moments, like Maxine's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feel It
United Artists, 1979. Very Good+
Great work from Noel Pointer – one of the leading lights in the United Artists soul spectrum at the end of the 70s! As with other Pointer sets from the time, there's a pretty strong fusion undercurrent here – a groove that's built up from Noel's own work on electric violin, plus some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Good To See You
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Near Mint-
Sophisticated soul from the great Walter Jackson – one of the best voices ever to come out of the Chicago soul scene, and a wonderful interpreter of just about any material!

Crown Prince Of Dance
Stax, 1973. Near Mint-
A crowning achievement for Rufus Thomas – a set that bubbles over with funky intensity, and one of the last great albums he ever recorded for Stax! The funky Rufus mode is still in full full swing here – with loads of tunes that have the word "funky" in the title – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Yellow Magic Orchestra
A&M, 1979. Very Good+
An electronic pop masterpiece! YMO's first US release, and their best LP of quirky techno pop, bubbling over with video game noise, synthesized beeps and a stew of futuristic noises all glued together with infectious rhythms. Includes "Computer Game (Theme From The Circus)", "Comput ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thinking of Home
Blue Note, 1970/1980. Very Good
One of Hank Mobley's last recordings for Blue Note, and a record that really shows him stretching it out – hitting territory hardly imagined on his earlier hardbop sides! The album's still somewhat inside, but the overall feel is much more spacious than before – a sound that has some ... LP, Vinyl record album
