Good Stuff

LP (Item 1608) 20th Century, 1974 — Condition: Very Good

A great bit of Chicago soul from the 70s – by a short-lived group who were sort of an offshoot of Brighter Side Of Darkness, who had scored earlier in the decade with the falsetto hit "Love Jones". This one was produced by Clarence Johnson/Star Vue Productions, and licensed to 20th Century, like the earlier work – and the record features a remake called "Love Jones 75". There's loads of other great stuff on the record, though – and the groove runs through the funk of "Tipsy Mood" and "Kung Fu You", to the mellower soul sounds of "I Found My Dancing Girl", and wonderfully sweet little number!  © 1996-2020, 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.

20th Century, 1974. Near Mint-
Standout work from The Younghearts – one of the best harmony soul groups of the 70s to record away from the east coast. The group's vocals are the strongest thing about the record – but they get a great extra push from Vernon Bullock, who produced and conducted the record with a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rita Jean Bodine

Sitting On Top Of My World
20th Century, 1974. Near Mint-
Put Rita Jean Bodine in the same category as Ruth Copeland – a white female singer who's mostly a rocker, but who manages to put some nice touches of funk into the mix! The album's got a very soulful undercurrent – even on the rock tracks – and there's 2 pretty nice tracks that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kinsman Dazz

Kinsman Dazz
20th Century, 1978. Sealed
A killer debut from the Dazz Band – issued way back when they were named Kinsman Dazz, and when "dazz" was a reference to the fact that the group could play both dance music and jazz! That jazzy element is definitely in place here – as the set's got lots of hip instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackson 5

Third Album
Motown, 1970. Very Good-
The Jacksons' third album for Motown – and definitely one that has the quintet moving full steam ahead! There's a sense of perfection here right from the get-go – that really put-together quality the boys hit with their second album, thanks to great studio help from The Corporation and ...

Stevie Wonder

Songs In The Key Of Life
Tamla, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A sweet little double LP – one that had some folks saying that Stevie should have stayed away from the "2LP syndrome", but for us a real treasure with lots of hidden gems. Besides the hits "Isn't She Lovely" and "Sir Duke", which were more than enough to carry ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
Classic Philly Spinners – with Philippe Wynne on lead vocals, and Thom Bell arranging and producing with that hit sound he gave the group during the 70s! The record may not of given the band as many hits as some of the others, but it's got an excellent Philly sound – with backing by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla, 1970s/Early 80s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A classic testament to the genius of Stevie Wonder – a collection that brings together some of his most important work of the 70s, plus a few new tracks too – all graced with a back cover note that proudly states "written, arranged, and produced by Stevie Wonder"! That note ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1974. Sealed
Syreeta's second album for Motown – and a set that really expands the groove from the first! (Then) husband Stevie Wonder is all over the album – and in a way, the shift between this album and the first is similar to the shift between Stevie's Music Of My Mind and later efforts like ...

Prince

Purple Rain
Warner, 1984. Very Good-
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ahmad Jamal

Macanudo
Argo, 1963. Near Mint-
One of Ahmad's best albums ever – a Latin-ized set of tracks done with arrangements by Richard Evans, who really knows how to make the set groove! Ahmad's flowing piano lines come into play with lots of tight percussion and big band backing – in a way that never dampens his spirit, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
