Dirty Dozens Vol 1 – House Party Album

LP (Item 12102) Cherry Red, Mid 70s — Condition: Very Good+

Mid 70s live album by Rudy Ray Moore – and one of the few records of his that we've seen that isn't on Kent. There's a band backing him up, but they're sort of in the background, and you can't hear them that well because Rudy's thundering voice is booming out over tracks like "Hell Of A Blow Job", "Crack Me Some Nuts", "Grow By The Minute", and "Fast Black".  © 1996-2021, 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.

Rudy Ray Moore

Streaker
Kent, Mid 70s. Very Good+
Given that Rudy was appearing nude on album covers for years before streaking became anything big in the US, it was a natural shift for him to focus on the trend! There's not that much music on this one, but the routines are nice and nasty – with Lady Reed joining in on "The Philosophy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Shaft
Enterprise, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A landmark album that hardly needs any introduction – as it's one of the most famous soundtracks, if not soul records, of the 70s! Isaac Hayes had already surprised music fans with the sophistication of his first few solo albums, which had been issued before this one – but with Shaft, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Withers

Justments
Sussex, 1974. Very Good
A massive 70s album from the great Bill Withers – one that's sometimes overlooked next to his huge crossover records that preceded it – but which is every bit as wonderful! Withers is still on Sussex Records, and still has that completely unique approach that made him a soul genre unto ... LP, Vinyl record album
King, 1967. Very Good-
Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Independents

First Time We Met
Wand, 1972. Sealed
Probably the biggest album by this Chicago soul group, and the one that yielded up their big hit "The First Time We Met". The set's got some excellent Chicago arrangements by Tom Tom, and a good bunch of tracks that includes all original material, like "Here I Am", "Just ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Chandler & Jerry Butler

One & One
Mercury, 1970. Sealed Gatefold
A classic collaboration between 2 of the godfathers of Chicago soul – recorded at a time when both of them had emerged as proven big-sales artists, and were given the freedom to experiment in different styles with side projects like this. Here, they're singing in almost a Curtis Mayfield-esqu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freeez

IOU
Streetwise, 1983. Near Mint-
Nice one! The album's a classic batch of early 80s electro – featuring 8 NYC breakin' cuts produced by Arthur Baker, and featuring John Rocca on lead vocals. A bit poppy, sure – and we'll be the first to admit that we kind of wrinkled our nose at this one back in the day. But after ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
This one was kind of Motown's answer to the Wattstax albums – a double live set, recorded in Chicago during the Push Expo, headed by Jesse Jackson. The tracks here are more of a mixed bag than some of those on the deeper soul Wattstax albums, but there are some nice moments overall, buried ... LP, Vinyl record album

Collage

Shine The Light
Constellation, 1985. Sealed
Fantastic funky soul from the prime years of the jheri curl scene on the west coast – served up by a group who are maybe a more electro-styled combo than their labelmates The Whispers and Lakeside! Collage are even heavier on the basslines and keyboards than on the previous record – ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1974. Near Mint-
Killer 70s work by the Four Tops – one of the group's best post-Motown albums, and a really hard-hitting batch of live tunes! There's a sound here that's grittier than just about any other Four Tops album – and that includes the classics for Motown – a style that brings together ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1983. Very Good+
The first rumblings of the pop genius in Yello's music – a record that still has all the best quirky electronics of their first two sets, but which also focuses that energy into a sound that's often more direct and oddly hook-oriented on the best numbers! There's a really percussive vibe ... LP, Vinyl record album
