All Ride

LP (Item 105347) Top, 1989 — Condition: Sealed
(Still sealed, with business card stapled to the corner!)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Johnny Bristol

Strangers
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
Excellent smooth soul from Johnny Bristol – working here in territory that's a lot more sophisticated than his earlier work, in the same vein as smooth modern soul singers like Leroy Hutson, Leon Ware, or Prince Phillip Mitchell! The album's got a sweet warm feel – and the richness of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1975. Very Good
Sublime work from Blue Magic – a record that still has them singing in the sweet harmony sound of earlier records, but which also picks up a fuller sound and a bit of a groove – thanks to stone Philly arrangements by Norman Harris and Ron "Have Mercy" Kersey! A number of ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1965. Very Good
Far more than a regular greatest hits – this is a full-fledged album, and one that includes a number of cuts that were singles for the group, but which don't really show up on other albums. The set is all-original, all-Curtis Mayfield penned, and all Johnny Pate arranged material – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry Butler

Folk Songs
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great lost album from Jerry – and a key link in the hip Chicago scene that produced Terry Callier and Oscar Brown Jr! Sure, you might think of the album as a silly "cash in on the folk craze" effort – but Jerry keeps it soulful throughout, and thanks to some wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

Down To Earth
Motown, 1966. Good
Sweet early soul from Stevie Wonder – an album that features his young and developing voice on a mixture of Motown soul tunes and pop covers done in a mellow sort of style. The record's still got Stevie's vocals swimming in larger backings and strings – but it does have these amazing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & Fire

Spirit
Columbia, 1976. Very Good
A big hit for the group – and a great album of smooth funky soul! Spirit is a perfect example of the way that Earth Wind & Fire could tighten things up, yet still keep them real – holding onto the deeply spiritual side that first made them great – but also focusing their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Volt, 1965. Near Mint-
Otis Redding Sings Soul – plenty of truth in that – but on this sweet little set, he somehow does it even better than before! The album's got a tightness that's totally great – but it's light years from the smoother soul of Motown, and still has plenty of the gritty Memphis edges ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dese Days, 1984. Near Mint-
Includes selections by Robert Parker, Lee Dorsey, Johnny Adams, Jean Knight, King Floyd, Dixie Cups, Earl King, Frankie Ford, Ernie K Doe, Bobby Marchan, Bobby Mitchell, and Van & Grace. LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Mayfield

Back To The World
Curtom, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover! The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Larkin & The Delegates

Hold On!
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Good
Classic small combo organ grooves from Billy Larkin and his mighty Delegates! This LP has Billy moving into a bag in which he's covering more 60's soul hits (as he did in his later career for World Pacific), but the groove is still pretty solid, and the album's still got few good original tracks. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Louis Bellson

Thunderbird
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Duke Ellington's drummer from the 50's leads a thunderous octet that includes Harry Edison on trumpet, Sam Most on alto, and Jim Cook on tenor. Bellson's drums are out front, and he kicks the group nice and hard through tracks like "Thunderbird", "Nails", "No More ... LP, Vinyl record album
