New Soul Of Jimmy McCracklin

LP (Item 1414) Imperial, Mid 60s — Condition: Good

Raw hard soul by this great bluesy soul singer. Jimmy produced and arranged the whole thing, and he lays down a great batch of originals like "Come On Home", "Just Let Me Cry", "Self Experience", and "Thinking Back". Also with a cover of "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Vinyl plays with crackles. Cover has a small peeled spot at the opening, some wear and aging, small split in the top seam, and a small stain on back.)

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.

Mel Carter

My Heart Sings
Imperial, Mid 60s. Very Good
A great little album of dramatic pop tunes – notable not only for Mel Carter's richly vibratic vocals, but also for sublime early production work by Nick DeCaro! Nick handled the arrangements with Jimmie Haskell and Harold Battiste, and the set's a gem that's right up there in the Gene ... LP, Vinyl record album
Imperial, 1965. Very Good+
Imperial LP built around Mel Carter's big 60's pop soul hit "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me", with some arrangements by Nick De Caro, and a good LA 60's studio soul sound. Gene Page and HB Barnum did the arrangements on the other cuts, so you can guess how the groove's going to sound. ... LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1974. Sealed
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... LP, Vinyl record album
K-Tel, 1973. Sealed
The second volume of this series was even better than the first, and contains more hard funky stuff, like "Jungle Fever" by Chakachas, "Doin' It to Death" by the JB's, "Theme from Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Fencewalk" by Mandrill, and 16 other funky cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album

LJ Johnson

LJ's Love Suite
AVI, 1979. Sealed
Sexy soul magic from LJ Johnson – not to be confused with ex-Dramatic LJ Reynolds, but a great singer in his own right! LJ's got a sweet vocal approach that's almost that you'd hear from earlier years, on east coast vocal group records – but here, he's working in a fuller, richer mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

New York City

I'm Doin' Fine Now
Chelsea, 1972. Sealed
Man, that east coast harmony sound couldn't miss in the 70s – as proven by the huge AM radio success of New York City! The band wasn't the greatest harmony group in the world – although they did feature John Brown, who'd cut his teeth in the Five Satins – but when you teamed them ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cesana Strings

Sheer Ecstasy
Warner, 1960. Very Good+
The subtitle for this says "The Luxuriously Slow Moods of...", and it's right! Despite a racy nude on the cover, reclining on a cool chair and smelling a flower, this music is more sleepy than sexy. Still, it's got the rich Cesana sound to it, with banks of strings banking nicely around ... LP, Vinyl record album
