Night People

LP (Item 13601) Westbound, 1976 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
One of their uptempo groovers from the mid 70's, with a mix of classic Detroit group soul and tighter disco sounds that were creeping into the Westbound label at the time. Paul Riser and David Van Depitte did the arranging, and the tracks include "If I Lose My Job", "Hideaway", "Don't Risk Your Happiness On Foolishness", and the long medley of "Night People" and "Lies Divided by Jive".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner, some ring and edge wear, and a center split in the bottom seam.)

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.

Denise LaSalle

On The Loose
Westbound, 1973. Near Mint-
A pretty sweet follow-up to Denise LaSalle's debut for Westbound – and like that set, another album recorded down in Memphis – with a razor-sharp sound that's far better than the treatment she got in later years! Arrangements are by Bowlegs Miller, who helped on the first – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Westbound, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
The Westbound debut of Denise LaSalle – and a killer bit of southern soul recorded down in Memphis with Willie Mitchell, despite the Detroit address of the label! The set is a real burner throughout – one that features mostly original material by Denise, recorded with a spare and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Ecstasy
Westbound, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Fuzzy funk from some of the all-time greats – one of the key Westbound Records classics from the mighty Ohio Players! This album's got the Players working at their all-time best – a bit jazzy, with a more sophisticated undercurrent than some of their contemporaries – a righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spanky Wilson

Specialty Of The House
Westbound, 1975. Very Good+
Spanky's last album before her recent revival, a jazzy soulful effort cut for Westbound, with arrangements by Johnny Allen, and a nice moody mellow sound. The overall approach is quite different than most of her work with HB Barnum, but Spanky's voice is still in great shape, and Detroit soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis Coffey

Sweet Taste Of Sin
Westbound, 1978. Very Good
By the time of this one, Dennis had been producing a fair bit of club tracks for Westbound – and it certainly shows in the record, which has a smoother sound than before, and a more spacious soulful groove. However, there's actually still a fair bit of funk in the mix – and Dennis' own ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bohannon

Insides Out
Dakar, 1974. Very Good+
A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual! Although most of Bohannon's work from the time is up-tempo and funky, side two of this album has some amazing slow spacey cuts – done with a drum sound that's still quite hard, but just slower than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gil Scott-Heron

Real Eyes
Arista, 1980. Near Mint-
One of Gil Scott-Heron's best albums from later years! The record's got some wonderful mellow cuts – the kind that send chills up our spine, and which remind us of Gil's stripped-down jazzy work on the album Winter In America. And in fact, Gil does an excellent remake of the classic track ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Castor Bunch

It's Just Begun
RCA, 1972. Near Mint-
Wickedly fuzzy funk! Jimmy Castor recorded in a lot of different styles during the 70s – but the one he used on this album is still his best – and the album may well be his lasting testament of funky genius! The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Odyssey

Odyssey (RCA)
RCA, 1977. Near Mint-
A crossover classic from the late 70s – a record that was born in the clubs, but bred in the mainstream – and the start of a very good relationship between Odyssey and RCA! The album will forever be known for its classic cut "Native New Yorker" – a seminal groover that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brute Force

Brute Force
Embryo, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
The one and only album by this righteous funky combo from Ohio! Although Brute Force were an American group of the late 60s, they've got a sound that brings in traces of the African rhythms that were bubbling under at the time – similar to some of the best London groups of the post-colonial ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray Moore

Eat Out More Often
Kent, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Classic stuff – Rudy's first album, and a fitting launch to his famous career of party records and live club performances! The cover's got Rudy in front of a nude black model, laying back on the couch, and encouraging him to do the thing that's implied by the title – but the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roberta Flack

First Take
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
What can we say? We've heard this one a million times, it sold over a million copies – but it's still incredible! The record is Roberta's first, and it features her in a mellow trio format, augmented by some occasional larger arrangements by William Fischer. At most points, though, the ...
