Africanism

LP (Item 14035) Polydor, 1977 — Condition: Very Good+

Long heavy disco tracks with nice touches of African percussion. Cerrone produced, and the tracks include "Africanism", "Tatoo Woman", and "Dr. Doo Dah". European club disco, but not without some nice funky moments – largely due to the percussion!  © 1996-2022, 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.

Isaac Hayes

Don't Let Go
Polydor, 1979. Very Good+
Wonderful later work from Isaac Hayes – a gem from his Polydor years that has a good mix of mellow cuts and more upbeat numbers! The record has 3 long "quiet storm" tracks that take off on Ike's earlier expanded ballad style (forged on tracks like "Walk On By") – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

New Horizon
Polydor, 1977. Very Good+
Great later work by Isaac Hayes – working here in a post-Stax, post-ABC mode that has him forging a smooth soul sound that's really great! The album's not disco, but more of an extension of Ike's baroque approach to arranging – with subtle use of strings and keyboards, in a real Philly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Withers

Still Bill
Sussex, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Bill Withers' second album – even more wonderful than the first!

Philadelphia International/Legacy, 1970s. Sealed
A beautifully-done collection of work from The Intruders – a brilliant package that follows the group from early harmony days into some of their more sophisticated grooves for Philly International in the 70s!

New Birth

Blind Baby
Buddah, 1975. Sealed
A classic album by this righteous soul collective – and one that shows them taking a strong step away from their work at RCA with Harvey Fuqua. This one has the group (ever-enormous as always!) absorbing some of the other elements of modern soul that were floating around at the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

Go All The Way
T Neck, 1980. Near Mint- 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

Carolyn Franklin

I'd Rather Be Lonely
RCA, 1973. Sealed
Classic soul from Aretha Franklin's hip sister – and quite possibly the most unified of all the Carolyn Franklin albums for RCA!
