One of THE 80s groove classics – an excellent album that never gets old! The BB&Q Band had a tight outta site style that was the best small combo 80s version of 70s mainstream funk – sweetly jazzy, thanks to some really spacious production, and filled with lots of hard-stepping guitar, bass, and keyboard bits that propelled the tunes with snappingly catchy rhythms throughout. The group's classic cut "On The Beat" best sums up their appeal – as it's one of those post-disco tunes that gets back to basics, but still really moves the crowd out on the floor. It's got a very catchy hook, as do most of the cuts on the album – and titles include "Don't Say Goodbye", "Starlette", "Time For Love", and "I'll Cut You Loose"! (Cover has a light stain, some light surface peeling, and a crease along the opening.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Wildest Organ In Town!
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Well, Preston would hardly ever be called the "wildest" organ player – at least not in our town – but the record's one of his best, and it's got a pretty tight instrumental groove that's similar to some of Jimmy McGriff's work for the Sue and Veep labels.

Tom Tom Club
Sire, 1981. Very Good+
The first album by The Tom Tom Club – the strange little offshoot of the Talking Heads that featured Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz – and one of the most influential records of the early 80s in both the mainstream and the avant pop underground! Legendary status aside, the album a weird ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
One of the best Stevie Wonder albums ever! Stevie's moving into god-like territory here – handling a multitude of styles, all well, and crafting some of the most sophisticated soul of his generation.

I Had To Fall In Love
A&M, 1978. Near Mint-
A great little solo set from Jean Terrell – a singer who's probably best known for her work as the leader of The Supremes after Diana Ross left the group, but who sounds even better here on her own! The album's still got the strong-voiced sound that Jean brought to her Motown years – ... LP, Vinyl record album
