Kings Of Clubs (Salsoul)

LP (Item 12125) Salsoul, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

A lost groover on Salsoul, with 3 long cuts that all have a solid dancefloor sound! Tracks include the Latin-tinged "El Caravanero", which has a nice organ sound in it; "Orfeu Negro", a disco version of "Black Orpheus"; and the title cut, which runs for 15 minutes on side one.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light surface wear and a small tear in the opening. Labels have initials in marker.)

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.

Brillant work from the Salsoul Orchestra – some of their most sophisticated work ever, and right in line with a soulful orchestral style that runs back through the work of Barry White into the early experiments of the Soulful Strings!

Skyy

Skyyline
Salsoul, 1981. Very Good
A stone classic from Skyy – one of those groups who virtually helped invent 80s groove! Like the best of the genre – such as Slave, BB&Q Band, and others – Skyy have a soulful approach that goes way past the simple cliches that other groups were so content to only muddle ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Criss

Rio De Janeiro
Salsoul, 1978. Near Mint-
Disco tunes with a Brazilian spirit – recorded in Philly by Gary Criss, but with all the sunny finish of Copacabana! The tunes were all arranged by John Davis – and have this soaring style that's really great – a mighty vibe that grabs onto all the best Davis energy and moves the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Skyy

Skyy
Salsoul, 1979. Very Good+
Sure, at the time the group's silly costumes and slap-bass funk sound were a bit too much to take – but from the perspective of a few decades later, they actually had a pretty darn nice 80s groove kind of sound, and this first album's not a bad one for the dancefloor. Titles include "Thi ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1974. Sealed
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Al Green Is Love
Hi Records, 1975. Sealed
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this! Al Green's at the height of his powers here – working in that wonderfully smooth, wonderfully warm style that made his early 70s material so wonderful! This album's maybe slightly less iconic than some of Green's other titles for Hi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet Inspirations

Sweet Sweet Soul
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint-
The Sweet Sweet Sweet Inspirations get the Gamble Huff treatment – and as it worked with Archie Bell, so it works with these guys – really well! The Philly sound gives the girls the right push that they need to keep from being just another snoozy Atlantic stable band, and it pushes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level! Trouble Man is a heck of a wonderful surprise from an artist that most folks really only knew as a singer – a fantastically funky blacksploitation soundtrack, conceived and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Imperial, 1965. Very Good
Imperial LP built around Mel Carter's big 60's pop soul hit "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me", with some arrangements by Nick De Caro, and a good LA 60's studio soul sound. Gene Page and HB Barnum did the arrangements on the other cuts, so you can guess how the groove's going to sound. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Dorsey

Night People
ABC, 1978. Sealed
A nicely evolved groove from Lee Dorsey – still working with tremendous production from Allen Toussaint, the man who brought him into stardom in the 60s – but with a warmer sound that's more 70s modern overall! The shift here is almost like that of Lamont Dozier's in the 70s – as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Irene Reid

Room For One More
Verve, 1965. Very Good
Although Irene Reid later went on to make some recordings that had her in a more rootsy setting, this nice set from the mid 60's features her deep soul voice amidst classy jazz-based arrangements by Oliver Nelson. The record's got the feel of one of Nancy Wilson's classics for Capitol, with a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album

Greatest – Original Soundtrack (in store play ep)
Arista, 1977. Very Good+
Rare promo-only 4-track e.p. of cuts (the best ones!) from the soundtrack to The Greatest, a 70s film about Muhammad Ali. The best cut is Mandrill's clubby "Ali Bombaye", an Afro-Funk tinged track with a strong uptempo groove, and lots of wah wah guitar. George Benson's "I Always ... LP, Vinyl record album
