One Fine Morning

LP (Item 11037) Evolution, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good+
$4.99 ...

LP

(€4.42 || £3.84 || ¥501) (approx.)

We're never really sure what to call Lighthouse. Are they "folk rock"? "Rock"? Or just plain groovy? Whatever the case, though, this is the album that includes their great cut "One Fine Morning". In case you don't know it, it's got a great funky riff that starts out the groove, then drums kick in with a nice hard fast junglist sound, and then brass and vocals come in at a triple tempo, for a strident jazzy dancefloor groove that lasts about 6 and a half minutes. It's a great cut, and tougher to find than you'd expect! Other tracks include "Love Of A Woman", "Old Man", "1849", "Hat's Off", "Sweet Lullabye", "Show Me The Way", "Sing, Sing, Sing", and "Step Out On The Sea". (Cover has a promo sticker with some marker.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Bodyheat
Polydor, 1976. Very Good
An enduring classic from James Brown – quite possibly the strongest of his late 70s albums, and a record that nicely balances the harder funk of the early part of the decade with a more sophisticated style that almost gets slightly jazzy at times!

Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover!

Cerrone's definitely got the Golden Touch here – grooving long and strong, with that mix of cosmic club and warmer disco that made his 70s music so great!

Casablanca, 1980. Very Good+
Groovy female club tracks – with George Clinton producing, and funky horn arrangements by Fred Wesley and the usual crew. A bit more uptempo than regular P-Funk material, but with some nice moments, nonetheless. Tracks include "Wolf Tickets", "I'm Mo Be Hittin' It", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Janus, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
The fantastic first album by one of the most unique funk groups of all time!

Atlantic, 1967. Very Good-
The wonderful debut album by the Sweet Inspirations for Atlantic – with the same sweet sound that they had backing Aretha Franklin on her classic recordings!

Donny Hathaway Live
Atco, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Just Sunshine, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Killer work from Betty Davis – one of the most impressive female funk talents ever!

Return Of Dolemite
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good+
Dolemite returns, every bit as raw as on his debut – making for another funky feather in the cap of Rudy Ray Moore during the 70s!
