LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Great stuff! Although a live album, Gratitude is one of Earth Wind & Fire's greatest from the mid 70s – a very tight batch of grooves that proves that Maurice White & Co. could play just as well on stage as they could in the studio – and the noise of the crowd going wild is enough to confirm that! And although a live set, the record's actually a bit half and half – with a few added studio tunes to keep the hits coming. Includes their classic version of Skip Scarborough's "Can't Hide Love", plus the mellow jams "Yearnin' Learnin'" and "Reasons", the funky "Shining Star", and a great cover of "Sun Goddess", which was also done by Ramsey Lewis with the group.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeves. Cover has surface wear and light staining.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Premonition
Columbia, 1976. Very Good
A beautiful album from Jon Lucien – one that's been far too neglected over the years!

2nd Wave
Columbia, 1988. Near Mint-
Great waves of sound here from Surface – a set that has the trio sounding even tighter and more fluid than ever – perfectly blending midtempo rhythms with their warm and sweet harmony vocals!

Rebbie Jackson

Reaction
Columbia, 1986. Very Good+
A smoking second album from Rebbie Jackson – a set that has Rebbie working with strong production help from two of the bigger aspects of the Columbia Records soul family in the 80s – Tito Jackson and Reggie Lucas, who each handle a handful of songs along with David Conley and Howie Rice. ...

Mission EP
Columbia, 1986. Near Mint-
The first ep by The Mission – a US harmony soul group whose name forced the British rock group The Mission to become Mission UK on these shores!

Wendy & Lisa

Fruit At The Bottom
Columbia, 1989. Near Mint-
The second album from the team of Wendy & Lisa – and a record that nicely gets past some of the more mainstream sounds of the first!

Philips, 1966. Near Mint-
Sublime pop soul genius from Bobby Hebb – a standout record that really made his career, and a dusty nugget we never tire of hearing!
