Maxayn

LP (Item 1429) Capricorn, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
Also available
Maxayn — Maxayn ... LP 26.99

The debut album from Maxayn – a funky female talent who deserves to be mentioned in the same territory as Betty Davis and Yvonne Fair! Like both of those artists, Maxayn isn't afraid to use an electric guitar when she wants – which puts her music somewhere in the territory of groups like The Bar-Kays and Black Nasty, and the way they could blend rock influences with funk and soul! No surprise, Maxayn's bandmates here include two members of Buddy Miles' group – who really help keep things deep – providing a massive foundation for the lady's incredible vocals. Titles include covers of the Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and "Gimme Shelter" – plus the original tunes "Trying For Days", "Jam For Jack", "Song", and "Doing Nothing Nothing Doing".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Capricorn, 1974. Near Mint-
Post-Atlantic work from Percy Sledge, but a set that's still pretty darn great – produced with a newly sophisticated edge in Muscle Shoals by the legendary Quin Ivy, who really seems bent on helping Sledge break out of earlier styles in his music! That undeniably great Sledge vocal approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1966. Good
A great Memphis sound from the second greatest instrumental group on Stax next to Booker T & The MGs – heard here on a massive record that really pushes The Mar-Keys to the next level! On previous records, the combo always had a sound that was a bit brighter than Booker and his group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dionne Warwick

Just Being Myself
Warner, 1973. Near Mint-
While the title may claim that Dionne Warwick is "Just Being Myself", the sound of the set is something completely different – a surprisingly great album that has the lady working with the post-Motown production team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! There's a quality here that resonates ... LP, Vinyl record album
Specialty, Late 50s. Good
Hard-searing work from the legendary Little Richard – the real deal, the original stuff, the kind of work that blew everyone away when it was first released, years before Richard became some sort of cliche! The raw power in this music is undeniable – as Richard screams his way through ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists/Chi Sound, 1976. Very Good+
A trio of vocal talents from Indianapolis – a mixed group with a bit of a funky sound, and kind of a rocking soul feel overall. The album includes the funky track "Uncle Funk", plus "Use Them All", "Blinded By Love", "Yes I Do", "Hollywood ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mind's Eye
RCA, 1974. Very Good+
Music beyond description or definition – one of Jon Lucien's legendary albums for RCA – a true pinnacle in the generation of sophisticated 70s soul! The sound here is a unique blend that's never been heard before – and hardly ever since, even though many have tried – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Mayfield

Curtis In Chicago
Curtom, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Curtis Mayfield, and a heck of a lot of greatness from the Chicago scene of the early 70s – music that comes from a rare TV special that also features guest appearances from Leroy Hutson, Jerry Butler, and Gene Chandler! Don't confuse this one with the 2LP Curtis Live set issued around the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Various

Soul Direction
CBS/Direction (UK), 1968. Very Good+
Very cool compilation from CBS UK, and one that features a whole bunch of funky soul tracks that we almost never see in any other form! With the monster cut "Funky Donkey" by Pretty Purdie, plus "The Camel" by Cliff Nobles, "Give Me My Freedom" by The Glories, "St ... LP, Vinyl record album

Change

Glow Of Love
Warner, 1980. Very Good+
The classic debut from Change – and the start of an amazing run of groovers in the early 80s! The set's got a tight, jazzy feel throughout – a stripped-down approach to disco modes, with the same focus on the basslines that you'd find in work by Chic – but a style that's almost ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ashford & Simpson

I Wanna Be Selfish
Warner, 1974. Very Good+
Stone classic early work from Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson – really moving past the Motown sound – stepping wonderfully into a hip style of soul that would have a huge effect on the direction of R&B in the 70s! I Wanna Be Selfish is actually a very giving effort from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shadow Vignettes

Birth Of A Notion
Sessom, 1985. Near Mint-
Chicago reed player Ed Wilkerson (also known as the leader of 8 Bold Souls, and a member of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble) formed this group in the 80's as sort of a mixed large band of Chicago avant garde players, but with more of a focus on tighter swingin' sounds. This, their only LP, includes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ken McIntyre

Hindsight
Steeplechase, 1976. Near Mint-
Surprisingly wonderful work from multi-reed player Ken McIntyre – one of his overlooked 70s sides for the Steeplechase label, nearly all of which are a bit more open and more together than some of his 60s modern work. By this point in his career, McIntyre's fused his earlier Dolphy-inspired ... LP, Vinyl record album
