Great Extreme

LP (Item 114372) Barry & The Fountains, 2020 — Condition: Sealed

Contemporary deep soul from Barry Jean Fontenot – a singer who should be destined to be huge, given the power and presence he has on this six track release! Barry knows how to soar like a classic soul singer, but also never hangs his music on cliches – as the sound here is very much his own, right down to backing by The Fountains, who have a nicely different vibe than more retro-sounding combos – especially when they throw in a few key tenor solos that really deepen the mood! The guitar is also nice and bright, in a way that's different from other recordings of this nature – bringing out new colors in Barry's vocals, on titles that include "By The Edge Of The Sea", "Second Line", "Desiree", "Come On Down", "The Flow", and "It Ain't So Easy".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Kelis

Kaleidoscope
Virgin, 1999. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
At the time of this album's original release, the Neptunes had yet to take over the world, so it barely saw the light of day. Combining Chad & Pharrel's tight beats and infectious ghettofied songcraft with Kelis' sweet vocals, we can't really tell what the folks at the label were thinking, as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Esperanza Spalding

Radio Music Society
Telarc, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Maybe the greatest record so far from the lovely Esperanza Spalding – a set that has her moving farther from jazz, into a wonderfully warm style of soul music overall! The mix of modes is exquisite – a blend of Spalding's jazz-trained vocals with some beautiful arrangements that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Red Star/Sony, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP
A collection of tracks put together by the folks at Heineken's Red Star Foundation – a program that's designed to support "urban influence music" (whatever that means!)

Movin' Up!
Muse, 1977. Very Good+
A nice little session from Don Patterson – proof that the organist was still going strong in the 70s! The album features a quartet with Richie Cole on alto, Billy James on drums, and Vic Juris on electric guitar – and the groove is laidback easy soul jazz, very much in the mode of ...

Mainstream, 1974. Very Good+
A fantastic 70s album from the great Sarah Vaughan – maybe one of her best small combo sessions of the decade – and a set that also makes room for some great instrumental contributions too! As you'd guess from the title, the group features the great Jimmy Rowles on piano – having ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+
A pivotal moment for Bob Dylan – and maybe one of THE albums of the 60s!
