Live At The London Palladium

LP (Item 10945) Motown, 1977 — Condition: Very Good
2LP Gatefold
This is the second of two live albums that Marvin Gaye cut during the 70s – and in many ways, it's the better one! The record features three sides of work recorded live at the London Palladium – mostly in these swirling medleys that are introduced by Marvin in a very soulful mode, then swing into well-arranged combinations of classic tunes with some excellent instrumentation. The album features a few straight cuts like "Since I Had You", "Let's Get It On", "Trouble Man", and "Come Get To This" – but the medleys are great, too, especially the one on side 2, which features kind of a mini version of the album What's Going On! But then, even after all that, side 4 opens up in a slamming studio track – the extended funky groover "Got To Give It Up", which has some great keyboards by Marvin and cool rhythm work by Jack Ashford. All very funky, and Marvin's big bid at a club cut – one that worked pretty darn well!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Dynamic Superiors

Give & Take
Motown, 1977. Near Mint-
Sweet group soul from The Dynamic Superiors – one of the few late 70s comers who still held onto that great falsetto lead that was big in the earlier part of the decade! The album does a great job of mixing funky numbers with sweeter, mellower cuts – in ways that also kind of bridge ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Hutch

Color Her Sunshine
Motown, 1976. Near Mint-
Solid soul from Willie Hutch – a self-produced, self-arranged, self-composed masterpiece that proves that he was one of the greatest things Motown had going in the mid 70s! The album's got a bit less of the wicked edges of Willie's blacksploitation work, but in its place is a really well-deve ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gladys Knight & The Pips

Anthology
Motown, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Although Gladys Knight & The Pips didn't cut their first recordings or their biggest recordings for Motown, they did still do a pretty nice job at the label – as you'll hear on this nice 2LP set that brings together a nice batch of their best tracks. Includes their original version of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Preston & Syreeta/David Shire

Fast Break
Motown, 1979. Very Good+
Billy Preston & Syreeta handled the music for this slightly-lame, kind of strange Gabe Kaplan vehicle from the late 70s. The music is relatively fine, although the album lacks any totally funky moments. Instrumentals include "Books & Basketball", "Half Time", "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson

Pure Smokey
Motown, 1974. Very Good+
Excellent mid 70s work from Smokey, recorded right before his landmark Quiet Storm album, and in a smooth sophisticated style that showed that he was definitely on the right track after splitting from the Miracles! The sound here is totally great – a new level of sophistication for Robinson, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Junior Walker

Hot Shot
Motown, 1976. Very Good+
A mid-70s stormer from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that glides along on a fuller set of backdrops than before, with Holland-Dozier-Holland production from Brian Holland returning to Motown – but in a hip 70s style that has strings and funk dancing along in a great way beneath ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1975. Very Good+
Released in the same year as City Of Angels, this set was also produced by Freddie Perren, and shares the same polished feel to the groove that he provided on that outing, but without the big chart hits. Overall, it's still a fine effort, with Billy Grifffin admirably filling in for the departed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supremes

Supremes A Go Go
Motown, 1966. Very Good
One of the biggest charting LPs by The Supremes – and one of the best, too! The girls are opening it up a bit here – getting in on some of The Miracles Go Go action of the period, and laying down tunes that have a bit more of a northern groove to them – relying a bit more on a ...

Trussel

Love Injection
Elektra, 1980. Near Mint-
Trussel may have cut this one and only album at the end of the 70s – but they've got a strength that's kept them going for years – despite a lack of success at the time! The record's a sweet modern soul stunner – a record that picks up a sweet jazzy groove that's augmented with ... LP, Vinyl record album
