Booker T & Priscilla

LP (Item 13394) A&M, 1971 — Condition: Very Good
2LP Gatefold

Memphis goes to California – with surprising results! The album's one of a few that Booker T cut after splitting with the MGs – of legendary Stax Records fame – and it's completely different than his earlier sides, and not in a bad way! Book recorded the set in California with wife Priscilla Jones, and it's done in a mixture of soul, rock, and folk styles – one that's as much in keeping with the Laurel Canyon or San Francisco scenes than Book's earlier work was with the Memphis ones. Booker and Priscilla both sing – sometimes together, sometimes apart – and the double-length set is pretty warm, fuzzy, and a bit trippy. Titles include "Delta Song" and "Wedding Song", both of which are standout tracks – and other titles include "She", "Funny Honey", "Medley From The Jones Ranch", and "The Sun Don't Shine".  © 1996-2019, 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.

A&M, 1974. Very Good+
A great little record from the Persuasions – and a bit different than their earlier work, too! Unlike a lot of the group's other records from the early 70s – most of which are all-acapella – this one features the group's rich harmony vocals backed by some heavier funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T Jones

Best Of You
A&M, 1980. Very Good
Wonderful solo work from Booker T – proof that he was just as great as a soul singer on his own, as he was back in the famous lineup of the MGs! Although Book plays keyboards on the record, he also sings a fair bit too – in this raspy, honest style that's really great – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's My Pleasure
A&M, 1975. Near Mint-
Billy Preston's getting some really wonderful help on this mid 70s set – assistance from a cool array of talents that includes Syreeta, Stevie Wonder, Shuggie Otis, and Keni Burke! Most of these guests artists only appear on a song or two each, but they really help Preston expand his sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brenda Russell

Get Here
A&M, 1988. Very Good+
A seminal bit of late 80s soul – and one of Brenda's biggest albums ever! This 1988 set features some really sweet tunes by Brenda – a bit more off-beat pop than some of her contemporaries, recorded in a style that has some nice jazzy touches. David Sanborn guests on the track "Le ... LP, Vinyl record album

A&M/Horizon, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
Karma was a group made up of some of the better west coast studio jazz players of the 70s – including Oscar Brashear, Ernie Watts, and George Bohanon – but despite the strength of their individual members, the group never really put things together all that strongly. They're not bad, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Janet Jackson

Control
A&M, 1986. Very Good+
A breakout album for Janet, with prime New Jack, or should we say New Jill, Swing production from the then unstoppable Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis Flyte Tyme production team. Includes "Control", "Nasty", "What Have You Done For Me Lately", "The Pleasure ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1974. Very Good
The first record by LTD – and an excellent bit of 70s soul that has the group working at their tightest! The tracks are shorter and a lot more focused than on later albums, and in a way, they sort of remind us of the ensemble funky soul sound that you'd hear on some of the early New Birth ...

Booker T & Priscilla Jones

Chronicles
A&M, 1973. Very Good-
Booker T's definitely into a great new groove here – one that really extrapolates his Memphis roots through the haze of early 70s California – coming up with some wonderful sounds along the way! There's a definite A&M vibe to the record – that mix of rootsy modes and hipster ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dakar, 1970. Very Good-
The second album from Chicago soul legend Tyrone Davis – and every bit as wonderful as his first!

Aquarian Dream

Chance To Dance
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+
Aquarian Dream step out on their own – working here for the first time without Norman Connors at the helm, but in a groove that's still plenty nice! The clubby aspects of the group's sound are played up by arranger/producer Jeff Lane – who'd worked often with BT Express and Brass ... LP, Vinyl record album
