LP (Item 13401) Capitol, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


An album that reunites Natalie Cole with the smooth soul team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancey – the team who did such a great job with Natalie's Capitol debut, and who really continue the groove here too! The album's got a rock-solid approach through and through – a quality that has Natalie really standing out on her own as a positive young artist in soul – without any need to nod towards her father, as in later years. And Jackson and Yancey bring a nice dose of Chicago soul class to the affair – which turns out to be a perfect match for Natalie's vocals! Titles include "Be Mine Tonight", "Party Lights", "This Heart", "I've Got Love On My Mind", and "Still In Love". (Still in the shrink, with hype sticker.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Street Called Desire
Capitol, 1985. Very Good
A bit late in the game for Rene & Angela, though they're still pumping out some classic 80s groove numbers, with Angela Winbush's flair for great songs. There's a few numbers here that are moving a bit too far into the commercial radio slow jam territory for our tastes, but there's a couple of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mystic Merlin
Capitol, 1980. Near Mint-
A great record by east coast funky soul group Mystic Merlin – and a diverse one, with some jazzy uptempo club tracks, and others on the funkier edge of that style – excellent work from this oft-overlooked band on Capitol! There's a bit of that nice, smoothed out group soul sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maze
Capitol, 1977. Very Good-
An amazing debut album from Frankie Beverly and Maze – as perfect as the group would ever sound, with an impeccable approach to both funk and ballads that put them at the top of the stack immediately! Of course, Frankie had been knocking around in indie soul obscurity for a number of years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
All the best elements for Lou's Capitol work are in place – arrangements by HB Barnum, production by David Axelrod, and a hip batch of pop tracks that really push Lou into a whole new dimension! Axelrod really knows how to bring up the bass in the arrangements, and create just the right ... LP, Vinyl record album
Solid
Capitol, 1984. Very Good
Darn solid work from Ashford & Simpson – one of the duo's biggest albums for Capitol Records, and a great set from their 80s run for the label! The groove here is a bit more heavy on keyboards and beats than before, but the pair still keep things plenty soulful with their positive, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Your Good Thing
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
Another one of the really good Lou Rawls albums from the late 60's. David Axelrod produced, and the drums are nice and hard, especially on "I Can't Make It Alone", which he arranged. Other tracks include "Give Me Your Love" (not the Curtis Mayfield song), "When She ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1979. Very Good+
Massive work from Sun – a large ensemble funk group who somehow managed to groove with the grace of a small combo! The album's got a sweetly compressed sound that's really setting the stage for 80s groove – lots of sweet keyboard and bass licks dancing around each other in a style that' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1984. Very Good+
A rare gem from Detroit soul legend Ronnie McNeir – featuring 4 tracks done for Capitol in the early 80s! Ronnie certainly bumped around over the years – from RCA, to Motown, Prodigal, and a few other labels – and it's a little known fact that he recorded for Capitol briefly ... LP, Vinyl record album

One Taste Of Honey
Capitol, 1984. Near Mint-
Titles include "Baby Sister", "Givin It Up", "Catch 22", "I'll Be There", "Who's It Gonna Be", and "Last Chance Romeo". LP, Vinyl record album
Do Me Baby
Capitol, 1986. Very Good+
A Capitol classic from Meli'sa Morgan – filled with sweet 80s grooves, and delivered with a style that's nicely lighter than some of her contemporaries! Morgan can still manage a nice hook when she wants, but the album's also got her working as a richer soul artist overall – eschewing ... LP, Vinyl record album
