Eastbound Expressway

LP (Item 11782) AVI, 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-

Classic work from female disco trio Eastbound Expressway – an Ian Levine project done in a mode to rival the great female club trios from Philly – and one that comes off surprisingly well! The work was recorded in UK, but has a style that reminds us a bit of some of the Canadian disco of the time – with long instrumental passages leading into the tunes, nice acoustic percussion bits breaking out in the mix, and vocals that are sort of filtered into the tunes as they roll on – maybe not the best credit to the Eastbound sound vocally, but still a nice way to lay things out! Titles include "Turn Back The Tide", "Better Look Before You Leap", and "Never Let Go".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Lowrell

Lowrell
AVI, 1979. Very Good
Excellent solo work by Lowrell Simon – once a singer with Lost Generation, but opening up a whole new style of Chicago soul here on his own! The album's a tasty batch of smooth soul tracks with a midtempo club groove – not disco, but with the kind of large production and loping groove ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brunswick, 1970. Very Good+
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the ...

Don't Look Any Further
Gordy, 1984. Very Good
The Temptations' former lead singer's first solo record with a huge 80s groove album, especially considering the mighty title track – the duet with Siedah Garrett and it's sly reggae influenced bassline and crisp popping beat. This is one of those records we appreciate a lot more with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1979. Near Mint-
A unique Motown project from the end of the 70s – an album recorded in tribute to Berry Gordy, Sr – father of Motown owner Berry, Jr – and a key force in the development of the warm spirit and family-like climate at the label. The set's an all-star affair, with contributions from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1983. Very Good
The Gap Band are definitely Jammin on this sweet little set from the early 80s – hitting that fierce funk mode they do so well, with lots of snapping lines at the bottom of the rhythms! The style is trademark Gap all the way through – a percolated approach to funk that's tight, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Jarreau

Jarreau
Warner, 1983. Near Mint-
A massive set from Al Jarreau – a set that gave the singer one of his smoothest hits of all time, yet still kept him very firmly in the sort of sophisticated territory that set him apart from most of his contemporaries! The sound here is often a lot more understated than you'd expect – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ashford & Simpson

Solid
Capitol, 1984. Very Good
Darn solid work from Ashford & Simpson – one of the duo's biggest albums for Capitol Records, and a great set from their 80s run for the label! The groove here is a bit more heavy on keyboards and beats than before, but the pair still keep things plenty soulful with their positive, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good

Budd Johnson

French Cookin'
Argo, 1963. Near Mint-
A really great record from this deeply soulful tenorist – a player whose work was always part of larger groups in the postwar years, but who hardly ever got a chance to cut small sessions like this! The tunes include a number of French language classics, but taken in a 60s soul jazz style ... LP, Vinyl record album
