Boppers

LP (Item 17023) Fantasy, 1978 — Condition: Very Good+

Classic jazzy vocal funk, produced by the At-Home productions team, and with the kind of scatting jazz harmonies that At-Home also worked with on the Side Effect albums. The group later went onto become the LA Boppers, and record for Mercury, but this album has more of a straight jazz funk feel, with less of the R&B production of the Mercury work. Titles include "Money's Funny", "Everybody Wants To Be A Star", "There She Goes Again", "I Believe In You", and "Somethin's Missing".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Esther Marrow

Sister Woman
Fantasy, 1972. Near Mint-
Very righteous work from Esther Marrow – a soul sister who sings with a hell of a lot of power! The set's an overlooked gem in the Fantasy catalog of the 70s, and it's one of only two secular soul albums cut by Marrow – and quite possibly the best of the bunch, too! Esther's got some ...

Fantasy, 1955. Very Good-
An early Odetta record where she duets with Larry Mohr for a nice selection of folk songs that have elements of the blues and country. Tracks include "John Henry", "Old Blue", "Water Boy", "Santy Ana", "The Car-Car Song", "Pay Day At Coal ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joyous
Fantasy, 1977. Very Good
Joyous grooves indeed – the second album by this legendary 70s jazzy soul outfit – and a landmark album in the Fantasy Records Bay Area funk mode! The record will forever be remembered for the cut "Joyous" – a monster groover with a killer hook, strong funky playing, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Softouch

Softouch
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+
The one and only release by this quartet of female singers – an album that's done in a weird style that's part disco, and part overly bass-heavy funk, an approach that doesn't really let the ladies hit their loveliest mode, and which has they rushing the lyrics a bit to keep up with the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Iceberg Slim

Reflections
ALA, 1976. Good+
A fantastic album of bad-rapping spoken material from Iceberg Slim – one of the hippest 70s sets of its type, and a great audio tribute to the man who wrote the books Pimp, Trick Baby, and Mama Black Widow! Slim reads his own work in a very laidback style, but one with a slinky, pimpish feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

This Old Heart Of Mine
Tamla, 1966. Good+
The Isley Brothers on Motown – a really key step forward for the group, who find a whole new level of soul with help from the Holland Dozier Holland team! There's a warmth here missing from previous Isleys material – that rough edge that was more part of their rocking years, softened a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philly Groove, 1968. Good+
A landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level!

Little Beaver

Joey
Cat, 1972. Good+
An excellent early album from the amazing Little Beaver – a set that's also probably one of his best ever – served up with some extra-dope guitar, and nice deep Miami soul production by Steve Alaimo! Beaver handled all the arrangements – which means that there's plenty of room ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Raw Blues
Stax, 1969. Good+
Classic Stax stuff from Johnnie, with great arrangements that mix blues and soul, and which offer a perfect backing to his soulful voice. Al Jackson produced the session, and the track list includes "Where There's Smoke There's Fire", "That Bone", "That's Where It's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gamble/Philadelphia International, 1968. Good+
An excellent early album from Billy Paul – done in a mode that's quite different than his bigger hits of the 70s! The record's almost more of a jazz outing, but with a definite soulful twist – done in this righteous mode that's not unlike some of the best Nina Simone material from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Winstons

Color Him Father
Metromedia, Late 60s. Good+
The one and only album ever cut by The Winstons – an obscure mixed-race soul combo who had roots in Otis Redding's touring band, and who hit big with a soul Grammy in 1969 for the title track to this one, "Color Him Father". The cut's an amazing document of its time, a sweet little ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peaches & Herb

For Your Love
Date, Late 60s. Good+
The sweethearts of soul sing sweet and mellow in this classic album of duets done way before they got reunited!
