LP, Vinyl record album

(€5.92 || £5.30 || ¥788) (approx.)

One of the best albums the Ohio Players cut during the years at Mercury! Most folks go for their big hit "Love Rollercoaster", but we've always been partial to the smooth, mellow funky track "Sweet Sticky Thing", served up here in the cool long version, which has a groove that builds and builds. With an excellent sexy cover, of course! Also includes "Honey", "Fopp", "Let's Love", "Ain't Givin' Up No Ground" and "Alone". (Cover has a cut corner, unglued seam, and a lightly bent corner.])  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Love We Have
Mercury, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Duets between Jerry Butler and Brenda Lee Eager – done as serious, adult oriented soul tracks, one side of the album in an optimistic "The Love We Have" setting, the other in a sadder "The Love We Had" setting – both of them handled in a mode that's far far different ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1972. Near Mint-
Great lost album of baroque soul tracks by Jerry Peters – and one that has a similar direction to some of the stuff that was coming out of Chicago at the time, particularly some of the heavier albums by Jerry Butler.

Mercury, 1978. Very Good+
One of the biggest and best albums ever for Hamilton Bohannon – filled with quirky rhythms and really unusual grooves! Bohannon was one of the key forces in setting the scene for disco invy 70s – and by the time the rest of the country was hitting the dancefloor in the middle part of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Phase II
Mercury, 1977. Sealed
A nice disco record from Hamilton Bohannon. The album mainly contains uptempo dance numbers but there are a few slower songs like "Daddy's Little Son" – a dedication to his son whose picture is on the cover of the album. The other tracks are "Andrea", "But What Is A ... LP, Vinyl record album

Honeydripper
Mercury, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Not the original version of Joe's big hit "The Honeydripper" – but a great album of R&B tracks! The set was recorded under the supervision of Bob Blackwell during the late 50s – and Bob takes Joe's influential hard R&B style, and applies it to some of the well-crafted ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet Sixteen
Mercury, 1974. Sealed
A lost little gem from Jerry – recorded towards the end of his years with Mercury. The record's got Jerry working in a much hipper style than before, drawing off the pool of younger Chicago soul talents that he'd begun to collect on some of his earlier albums for Mercury – and the ...

Lenox, 1962. Very Good+
A landmark album – not only for Esther Phillips, who's emerging here as a gifted young lady, very different from her R&B years, but also for the genre of country soul, which was emerging to be one of the most important strands in the new music during the 60s! Esther's not fooling around ... LP, Vinyl record album
Super Dude I
Mercury, 1973. Sealed
A fantastic early 70s set from Don Covay – probably best known for his 60s hits on Atlantic Records, but really winning us all over again with this smoking set for Mercury! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but isn't just southern soul – as a wealth of 70s influences filter into ... LP, Vinyl record album
All Things In Time
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good+
A killer – and one of our favorite Philly International albums ever! This is the album that broke Lou Rawls back into the mainstream for the smooth 70s – retuning his incredible voice with waves of soul and strings in the Gamble & Huff tradition – and giving him a whole new ...

Anacostia make the move to Tabu Records for this sweet second set – and they seem to have picked up more of a groove along the way!
