Stone Gon'

LP (Item 13063) 20th Century, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
One of The Maestro's true materpieces! Fragile, sexy, sinful soul, held together by interwoven strings and keyboard lines, with Barry's voice over the top like rich cream on a sweet piece of cake. Includes the long versions of "Honey Please, Can't Ya See" and "Never, Never Gonna Give You Up", plus "Hard To Believe That I Found You".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In the original quad-fold cover, with the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

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.

20th Century, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
Kind of a "greatest hit" of greatest hits compilations – a set that's probably sold more copies than any of Barry White's full length albums – thanks to a monstrous run of hits in the 70s! The package is overflowing with greatness – amazing tunes that balance funky ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ellen McIlwaine

Ellen McIlwaine
20th Century, 1978. Near Mint-
Although Ellen McIlwaine's always best-remembered for her folksy work on Polydor, she's also pretty darn nice on this kind of record – a sophisticated soulful outing that shows that she sould still really thrive as an artist in a more commercial environment. The best cuts are the mellower ... LP, Vinyl record album

Edwin Starr

Clean
20th Century, 1978. Very Good+
A solid entry from Edwin Starr's late 70s comeback into the clubs – a set that's miles from his harder soul for Motown, but which still has some pretty great vocals overall! Edwin's working here with Lamont Dozier, who helps bring his Detroit groove into smoother California territory – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Edwin Starr

Edwin Starr
20th Century, 1977. Near Mint-
Edwin Starr is maybe best known for his work on Motown – but the singer really kept on going strongly during the 70s – at a level that's got him really moving nicely past the sound of his roots in Detroit! This set has Edwin working with arranger Pip Williams on a really ambitious set ... LP, Vinyl record album

Younghearts

Do You Have The Time
20th Century, 1972. Near Mint-
Once a raw harmony group, the Younghearts moved into a sweeter, smoother soul vein for their 20th Century recordings, and the result is an excellent batch of modern soul tracks with a nice groove to them. This album includes their great groover "Do You Have The Time (parts 1 & 2)", ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1965. Very Good+
Sure, Esther Phillips and a few other 60s soul singers were recording Beatles tracks – but Mary Wells was the real deal, as she even had the support of the group itself, who made it known that she was one of their favorite American soul artists. This nice album on 20th Century features an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1979. Near Mint-
An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1979. Near Mint-
Funky dancefloor soul divas Stargard move to Warner for the irresistible Changing Of The Gard – with a change of the guard in the production booth, too – working here with Verdine White of Earth Wind & Fire, co-producing with Robert Wright! The change pays off musically for sure, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cheryl Lynn

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan

Chaka Khan
Warner, 1982. Near Mint-
Great stuff – and one of the gems that Arif Mardin produced for Chaka during her immediate solo years after leaving Rufus. Mardin's sweet soulful arrangements are a perfect fit for Chaka's voice – not only on soul tracks like "Tearin' It Up", "Got To Be There", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Dorsey

Night People
ABC, 1978. Near Mint-
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

Bar-Kays

Too Hot To Stop
Mercury, 1976. Good
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players ... LP, Vinyl record album
