Feelin' Good At The Cadillac Club (second pressing)

LP (Item 11545) Gamble/Philadelphia International, 1968 — Condition: Very Good+

An excellent early album from Billy Paul – done in a mode that's quite different than his bigger hits of the 70s! The record's almost more of a jazz outing, but with a definite soulful twist – done in this righteous mode that's not unlike some of the best Nina Simone material from the same time – in a way that really shows some of the deeper strains in Billy's style. Billy's singing with a small piano trio, and his voice is rich and soulful in a way that you don't always get on his later recordings – quite powerful even with limited backings, at a level that really blows us away. The set's nearly all covers, but Billy's interpretations are fantastic, and he turns the tracks into something completely different than you're used to – in the same way that Nina Simone and Isaac Hayes were doing at the time with contemporary hits. Tracks include "Bluesette", "That's Life", "Feelin' Good", "Just In Time", and the Kenny Gamble original, "Missing You".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(2nd pressing on Philly Int'l – in nice shape!)

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.

Unmistakably Lou
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good+
One of the greatest records ever by Lou Rawls – if only for one cut!

Karen Pree
MCA, 1977. Near Mint-
We only know Karen from this one album, but she's got a heck of a nice voice – one with a full range and jazzy richness that should have made her a much bigger star. There's traces here of the jazzy 70s pop of Joni Mitchell or Maria Muldaur – although the album itself is produced with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chambers Brothers

Unbonded
Avco, 1973. Near Mint-
A sweet 70s session from The Chambers Brothers – one that's more electric and less rootsy than before, and which gets some nice pop soul arrangements from Tony Camillo! Camillo brings in a compressed groove that could almost get the group on the radio – losing the folksy and rock-ish ... LP, Vinyl record album
TK, Late 70s. Sealed
Sweetly soaring disco from the legendary Celi Bee – easily one of our favorite disco divas of the late 70s! This album's got a slightly lighter feel than some of Celi's other work – a bit less drama at times, but still plenty of full-on clubby rhythms – thanks to arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album
