Soul Of Ike & Tina (United)

LP (Item 162670) Kent/United, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Hard-hitting early work from Ike & Tina Turner – raw, unbridled, and surprisingly tight – yet without any of the cliches or overdone righteousness that marred their later years! Tina's still singing here often as part of the backing group, stepping out for a soulful lead at times, but also very much in touch with her supporting sisters – and there's a number of tunes that have a really nice focus on Ike's raw and raspy guitar work, which we always like a lot! All tunes are Ike Turner originals – freshly voiced tracks, and none of the crossover covers that the pair later included in their work – and titles include "Hard Times", "I Don't Need", "Chicken Shack", "Gonna Have Fun", "It's Crazy Baby", "Am I A Fool In Love", "Don't You Blame It On Me", and "Hurt Is All You Gave Me".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

The early genius of Ike & Tina Turner in all it's glory – free from cliches, hokey lyrics, and all the other BS that later bogged them down!

Ike & Tina Turner

Ike & Tina Turner Show Vol 2
Loma, Mid 60s. Very Good
A strange little record that's seen life in more than a few releases over the years – this one on Warner's Loma subsidiary!

Soul Of A Man
Kent (UK), Late 1960s. Very Good+
A great early Kent/Ace compilation – vinyl only, and with work from The Gentlemen Four, Tony Drake, Tommy Hunt, Cicero Blake, Benny Gordon, The Masqueraders, Johnny Copeland, Msarvin Preyer, and others – lots of rare soul! LP, Vinyl record album
Kent, Late 60s. Very Good+
An obscure late 60s session that has R&B genius Roy Milton fronting a small group led by Johnny Otis, and featuring a young Shuggie Otis on guitar! The set's packaged in a "roots of rock" sleeve to cash in on the kids, but it's a pretty nice little set with a stoner R&B sound. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray Moore

Sensuous Black Man
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good+
Rudy Ray Moore cut some mighty raunchy records in his time – but this one may well the be the raunchiest, and maybe the funkiest too! The album's an instruction of "the proper way to make love to a lady" – but done in true Rudy Ray style, with very down-to-earth language that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray Moore

Dolemite For President
Kent, 1972. Near Mint-
Rudy Ray Moore takes the White House – or at least tries to – in this cool 1972 album that must have been a great antidote to the campaigns of Richard Nixon and George McGovern! The set starts with Rudy running his way through a whole bunch of campaign issues – including "Fre ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kent, 1972. Very Good+
One of two albums produced by Rudy Ray Moore – the other being The Sensuous Black Man – which define the art of making love from a gender-based perspective. Like Rudy's Sensuous Black Man, The Madam's version features one side of "instructional" dialogue – very XXX-rated ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Charles & Cleo Laine

Porgy & Bess (200 gram remaster)
RCA/Classic, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A surprisingly nice reworking of the Gershwin score – and Ray and Cleo are a surprisingly nice match on vocals! LP, Vinyl record album

A surprisingly nice reworking of the Gershwin score – and Ray and Cleo are a surprisingly nice match on vocals! LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1979. Near Mint-
An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned ... LP, Vinyl record album
