Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Smooth mellow grooves, in the style that Eddie pioneered, and which he still did better than most. The album's a great batch of tracks with production by Leonard Caston, who also produced some of Eddie's earlier works, and the set's pretty darn great all the way through. With the cuts "Something Shady", "You Got It", "Intimate Friends", "Diamond Girl", and "California Woman". (Back cover has peeling due to moisture along the bottom 3 inches.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Eddie Kendricks
Tamla, 1973. Very Good+
A legendary album from the great Eddie Kendricks – a set that not only has the singer soaring on the kind of sublime old school vocal numbers he always did so well – but one that also has Eddie stepping out into some great dancefloor modes that would have a huge impact for years to come! ...

Motown, 1970. Very Good
One of the last albums the Four Tops ever issued on Motown – but also one of the best, and a set that really has the group taking off in a strong new direction for the 70s! Frank Wilson's at the production helm, and the set has all these cool little twists and turns that work perfectly with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla, 1964. Very Good+
Early work by Marvin Gaye – with many gems from the early and mid 60s that were big or minor hits for Marvin during his early days at Motown. The set includes "It Hurt Me Too", "I'm Yours, You're Mine", "One Of These Days", "Taking My Time", "Can ... LP, Vinyl record album
DeBarges
Motown, 1981. Very Good+
The wonderful first album from DeBarges – a surprisingly great batch of harmony soul that really updates the "family" sound of 70s groups like The Sylvers and Five Stairsteps – and helps it find a whole new place in the 80s! The arrangements are wonderfully old school – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mandre
Motown, 1977. Very Good
A classic set of spacey club from Mandre – aka Andre Lewis – an artist we'd place right up there with some of the best cosmic sounds from Dexter Wansel at the time, and maybe even some of the more space-bound club artists of the European scene as well! The album's got some wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tribute To Uncle Ray
Motown, 1963. Near Mint-
Early vocal work from Stevie Wonder – a tribute to Ray Charles, who's not really Stevie's uncle – but a decidedly good match as a sightless soul contemporary! Wonder's vocals are still quite youthful at this point, and bring a really different interpretation to Ray's classics than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1960s/1970s. Very Good+
Unreleased gems from Marvin Gaye's Motown years – issued after his death in something of a cash-in effort, but a pretty great little record overall! There's a bit of overdubbing here that tries to "modernize" some of the tracks – which we remember not liking that much at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Concert In Blues
Motown, 1976. Very Good-
No blues at all – just some great funky soul from the mighty Willie Hutch – served up here on one of his classic full length sets for Motown in the 70s! The vibe's kind of an extension of Willie's great blacksploitation soundtrack material from a few years before – lots of bad-str ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1983. Very Good
One of the strangest acts to come from Motown in the early 80s – and almost more of a new wave record than a soul one! The standout hit here is the title track "Somebody's Watching Me" – an odd electro tune that has Rockwell speaking/singing these paranoid lyrics with a vague ... LP, Vinyl record album
