LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

One of the few full albums ever cut by The Masqueraders – a stellar vocal group who recorded some excellent singles in the 60s, and were fortunate enough to be pulled into the big time by Isaac Hayes for his Hot Buttered Soul imprint on ABC! The band mixes their smooth Memphis style with some tighter arrangements by Ike and Lester Snell – and the result is a nice batch of modern soul tracks that keeps up the groove of the Hot Buttered sound nicely! Tracks include "Be For Real", "Runaway Slave", "It's A Terrible Thing To Waste Your Love", and "Love Between A Woman And A Man".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and a promo stamp.)

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.

Masqueraders
Bang, 1980. Near Mint-
One of the south's best 70s vocal groups, recorded here in their debut for CBS, produced by James Stroud with a surprisingly sweet mellow modern soul sound. Includes the nice stepper "Starry Love", plus "I Love You, I Want You, I Need You", "Into Your Soul", and " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Tops

Main Street People
ABC, 1973. Sealed Gatefold
Really nice work from The Four Tops – proof that they were still going quite quite strong after Motown!

Brass Fever

Brass Fever
ABC, 1975. Very Good+
Nice record by Brass Fever, and a one that was recorded before their more disco-y Time Is Running Out LP.

Moulin Rouge

Moulin Rouge
ABC, 1979. Very Good+

Pickwick/ABC, 1960s. Very Good-
A nice 70s collection of classic 60s ABC work by the early Impressions – not necessarily the group's biggest hits, but a nice batch of work nonetheless! The work is all seminal Chicago soul – recorded mostly with arrangements by Johnny Pate, sung with that sweet crackling harmony style ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Pate/Four Tops

Shaft In Africa
ABC, 1973. Very Good+
One of the greatest blacksploitation soundtracks ever – a massively beautiful record that goes beyond any cliches of the genre, and serves up a fantastically unique batch of tracks! Chisoul arranger Johnny Pate did the music for the film – and (dare we say it?) it's even greater that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impressions

Versatile Impressions
ABC, 1969. Near Mint-
Less Curtis Mayfield tunes than usual – but the record still sounds great! The arrangements are by Johnny Pate, who handled the group's best work of the 60s – and he gives all the material a great sound that perfectly matches the smooth raspy harmonies of the trio. Curtis contributed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sting

Pleasure
ABC, 1978. Very Good+
Not to be confused with the group Pleasure, or the ex-Police leadman Sting – this group are a pretty darn sweet disco trio with a really nice groove! The sound's a bit different than other disco references we might use – not really New York, European, or Canadian – and done with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Denise LaSalle

Bitch Is Bad
ABC, 1977. Near Mint-
From the title of this one, you can tell that Denise is going for a bit of late 70s Mille Jackson action – mixing the rougher styles of her roots with some more sophisticated backings – all in a proto-feminist mode that always comes out with the lady on the top! Production is by ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1975. Near Mint-
A surprisingly great little album from Freda Payne – recorded after her years with Holland Dozier Holland – but done with a sweet smooth style that's almost southern/modern – and which really works for her voice! The album's got a really unified feel – never too over the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

Go All The Way
T Neck, 1980. Sealed Gatefold
It's the end of the 70s, and the Isleys are still going strong – keeping it real by dropping some of the fake funk of a few years before, and going for a smooth soul sound that would be one of their biggest strengths during the early 80s. This sound can be heard to perfection on the tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
