Runnin' Out Of Fools/Take It Like You Give It

LP (Item 400347) Columbia, 1964 — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

A 2-fer combining 2 of Aretha's better LP's for Columbia. Runnin' Out Of Fools isn't as deep as her later albums for Atlantic, but as an early session for Columbia it's a nice reminder of how good an interpreter of songs Aretha was – whatever the songs, and whatever the setting. She sings with some large arrangements by Belford Hendricks, and performs a mix of soul, pop, and jazz tracks that includes "Walk On By", "How Glad I Am", "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face", "Runnin' Out Of Fools", and "One Room Paradise". Aretha belts it out nicely on Take It Like You Give It– one of the few Columbia albums to really put a bit more soul in the arrangement, thanks to help from Clyde Otis and Belford Hendricks, who'd done some fine work over at Mercury, in a similar classy soul-drenched style. Titles include "A Little Bit Of Soul", "Only The One You Love", "Deeper", "Remember Me", "Land Of Dreams", "Lee Cross", "I May Never Get To Heaven", and "Take It Like You Give It". (360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has some wear and stains.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Roadshow/Columbia, 1977. Very Good
An overlooked gem from BT Express – the group's 5th album, but still very much in the tightly-crafted ensemble mode of earlier years!

Making Music
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+
Damn! Bill Withers can never do wrong in our book – and this album is definitely case in point! The set marks Bill's big move from Sussex Records to Columbia, and it's the start of an amazing run in the late 70s – completely sublime soul that wraps up all Withers' roots from the ...

In The Night
Columbia, 1981. Very Good
One of Cheryl Lynn's early killers for Columbia – an album of tight, bouncy, joyous soul all the way through – free from any of the too-commercial touches that sometimes slowed Cheryl's later work!

Columbia, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
A tremendously beautiful album – and a righteous anthem of power and growth that seems to open itself up to us more and more over the years!

Columbia, 1967. Very Good
One of the biggest albums ever from The Chambers Brothers – a set that helped them cross over big into the mainstream – shaking off their previous folksy roots with a rumbling approach to psychedelic soul!

Preppie
Columbia, 1983. Very Good+
Hard to believe that a preppie look could ever be associated with a soul singer, but by the time of this 1983, the preppie craze had spread so much that it actually provided Cheryl Lynn a nice way to update her style! There's nothing preppie about the music, though – and the record's a great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Open Sesame
De-Lite, 1976. Very Good Gatefold
A magic carpet ride of funky soul from Kool & The Gang – classic Open Sesame from '76 – one that took the group to a higher level! It's not as rawly funky as some of the group's earlier albums, but they do still bring it, just with a cooler spirtual vibe that we never expected ... LP, Vinyl record album

Valerie Simpson
Tamla, 1972. Near Mint-
Although Valerie Simpson's on her own as the singer here, Nick Ashford was in the studio for most of the set, helping Valerie produce and write most of the cuts on the album. The record's got kind of a hip soul sound that's more LA than Motown – and although we're not always sure it works ... LP, Vinyl record album
