Gatefold

A landmark album – not only for Bob James, but for CTI and the Fender Rhodes as well! This is the album where all the magic starts – the first of many extremely successful albums that Bob recorded during the 70s under his own name, and almost the birthplace of the modern hip hop keyboard sample line! The album's stuffed with great numbers – including a sublime reading of "Feel Like Making Love", and the classic "Nautilus" – a slow, dark, funky tune that's worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include "Valley Of The Shadows", "Night On Bald Mountain", and "Soulero".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow label pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Includes the CTI inner sleeve. NOTE – Cover appears to have been replaced with a reissue.)

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.

Foxie
Tappan Zee, 1983. Near Mint- Gatefold
A schmaltzy cover, but still some pretty nice work from Bob James – playing here in a smaller combo mode that hangs onto the format of his earlier classics on CTI! The keyboards definitely have some sounds that mark the early 80s date of the record – but they're still warmer and more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob James

Sign Of The Times
Tappan Zee/Columbia, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold
Soulful 80s work from Bob James – a record that features him working a bit with Rod Temperton of Heatwave, in a style that's got a few more soul-based modes than before! Temperton wrote half of the tracks on the record – the tighter, catchier ones that often use a bit of backing vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A live set by Bob – packaged in a cover that has a picture of him in a Taxi, certainly designed to cash in on his fame doing the theme for that TV show! The record's actually quite nice, and is a good blend of the mellow Bob from later years and the darker Bob from earlier ones – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob James

Three
CTI, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Dark genius from keyboardist Bob James – one of his seminal 70s classics for CTI! The album follows strongly in the spirit of the records One and Two – using James' spacious approach to Fender Rhodes alongside some backings that are electric, yet have an earthily funky quality that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob James

Heads
Tappan Zee, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
Heads or tails, it's a winner every time – as the record's one of the last clear moments of genius from keyboardist Bob James in the 70s! The sound here is stepping out a bit more from Bob's earlier sides on CTI, but there's still plenty of great keyboard work to make the album worth seeking ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato

Deodato 2
CTI, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yusef Lateef

In A Temple Garden
CTI, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold
An obscure one for Yusef Lateef – and proof that the reedman was always open to new ideas at every single point in his career! Lateef had already recorded for the CTI label on a few great previous albums – but this album is quite late in his run for the label, and has a slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato

Prelude
CTI, Early 70s. Very Good- Gatefold
A legendary album from the 70s funk scene – and one of the crowning achievements of keyboard maestro Eumir Deodato! Deodato got his start during the bossa years of the 60s – where his sophisticated charts were already enough to make his career a landmark – but in the following ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

Tell It Like It Is
A&M/CTI, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
An early George Benson groover from the A&M years of CTI – a set that's quite different than his famous 70s sets, with a really unique sound overall! The arrangements here are by Latin Soul maestro Marty Sheller – who brings some of the vibe to the set that he brought to his 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine

Salt Song
CTI, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
An amazing album from Stanley Turrentine – quite different than most of his other sessions for CTI, but in a really great way! Stan's playing here with arrangements from Deodato – in a swirling, Brazilian jazz influenced mode that's similar to their work together with Astrud Gilberto ... LP, Vinyl record album
