East Bay Grease

LP (Item 13392) San Francisco/Atlantic, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the first albums from Tower Of Power – and one of the funkiest, too – a set that really has the group working in a loose, spontaneous mode that's totally great – steeped in all the best elements of southern soul, but forged with a new sort of energy in the Bay Area scene at the start of the 70s! The tracks are nice and long, but never overly jamming – and the album's the start of a great run of classics from the group, and is still one of our favorites from them over the years. Titles include "Back On The Streets Again", "Sparkling In The Sand", "The Skunk, The Goose, & The Fly", and "Social Lubrication".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Ray Charles

Genius Of Ray Charles
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good-
Later Atlantic Records material from the legendary Ray Charles – a set that definitely lives up to the genius of the title, in that it shows a real sense of development in Ray's music!

Bernard Edwards

Glad To Be Here
Atlantic, 1983. Very Good+
Post-Chic work from Bernard Edwards – and a pretty groovy set overall! The album's got a very different style than Edwards' music with Chic – even though Nile Rodgers plays a fair bit of guitar on the record – and it's wonderful to hear Bernard's different style of music, let ...

Funkadelic

Cosmic Slop
Westbound, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision ...

Warner, 1985. Very Good+
Zapp at the height of their powers – a bit more focused than before, but every bit as funky!
