Corinne Bailey Rae

LP (Item 100300) Capitol, 2006 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

(180 gram anniversary pressing.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Maze

Maze
Capitol, 1977. Very Good+
An amazing debut album from Frankie Beverly and Maze – as perfect as the group would ever sound, with an impeccable approach to both funk and ballads that put them at the top of the stack immediately! Of course, Frankie had been knocking around in indie soul obscurity for a number of years ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Minnie
Capitol, 1979. Very Good-
Minnie's last LP – or at least the last LP released while she was alive – and a wonderful batch of jazzy modern soul cuts that gives a good indication of the direction that Minnie might have gone in the 80s. The album's got plenty of great guest players – including Minnie's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Natalie Cole

Unpredictable
Capitol, 1977. Near Mint-
An album that reunites Natalie Cole with the smooth soul team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancey – the team who did such a great job with Natalie's Capitol debut, and who really continue the groove here too! The album's got a rock-solid approach through and through – a quality that has ... LP, Vinyl record album

Taste Of Honey

Twice As Sweet
Capitol, 1980. Very Good+
Twice as sweet, and mighty neat – a killer set from Taste Of Honey, and one that has the girls moving away from Mizell Brothers help in the studio, and getting some great grooves from George Duke! Duke brings in all his best jazzy soul to the duo – lots of keyboards stepping around the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Rawls

Nobody But Lou
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
Great early stuff by Lou! No, the record doesn't have funky David Axelrod arrangements – but it does have some great jazzy backing by Benny Carter, which gives Lou's sweet soulful voice a great platform to riff off of. The record's one of Lou's jazziest, and it's mostly tight and swinging ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Redding

Blood Brother
Capitol/Haven, 1974. Very Good+
A strange little soul album – produced and written by the team of Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, with arrangements by Michael Omartian, and an overall sound that's kind of a mixture of soul and more baroque type backings. The whole thing's not bad overall – but it does lack the punch ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Perfect Angel
Epic, 1974. Very Good+
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest female soul stars! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
Invictus, 1972. Very Good
Heavy soul from the house of Holland-Dozier-Holland – some of the best bits from their Invictus powerhouse label of the early 70s – definitely a scene-setting imprint at the time! Invictus had some of the deepest grooves ever recorded by the trio – heavy, rumbling bottom sounds ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Ecstasy
Westbound, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Fuzzy funk from some of the all-time greats – one of the key Westbound Records classics from the mighty Ohio Players! This album's got the Players working at their all-time best – a bit jazzy, with a more sophisticated undercurrent than some of their contemporaries – a righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album
