It's Time You Took Another Listen

LP (Item 17449) Mercury, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

It's clearly long after his Stax years at this point, but the album's still got some nice enough soul moments, and was still all recorded in the south. Tracks include "Yesterday I Lied, Today I Cried", "Morning Glory", "Your Love Keeps Me Going", "Let it Shine", and "Satin Sheets".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner and a bent corner.)

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.

Aura

Aura
Mercury, Mid 70s. Very Good Gatefold
Is this the same group that went onto become Aurra and record disco records for Salsoul? We don't think so, but folks tell it that it is. Whatever the case, though, the record's a great batch of funky rock tracks, with some really hard groovers that crossover to a funky soul market – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+
Brilliant 70s work by The Dells – and an album that has the group reinventing themselves wonderfully, by moving over to Philly and recording with Norman Harris! As he did with so many other artists at the time, Harris took the group firmly into the clubs with a soaring Sigma sort of groove ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1979. Very Good+
A sweet groover from Esther Phillips – done in a style that's much more club-oriented than before, but which we find ourselves liking quite a lot! Given that Esther had explored other modes quite thoroughly on other 60s and 70s sessions, the change here is actually a nice one – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bar-Kays

Too Hot To Stop
Mercury, 1976. Near Mint-
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold
A super tripped-out blend of rock, funk, and soul – easily one of Buddy Miles' most mindblowing albums – and a classic that never lets up at all! Buddy's leading the whole group on drums – really kicking things large from behind the kit – while the rest of the group jams in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Central Line

Choice
Mercury, 1984. Very Good+
Bass-heavy soul from Central Line – very much in the Kleeer mode, although perhaps with more funk and less harmony vocals. The bass pedals and keyboards are in full effect here – and the vocals get dramatic at times just to keep up with them. Titles include "Man At The Top", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Exuma

Exuma
Mercury, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark first album from Exuma – one of a handful of early 70s classics that really worked hard to break down musical genres! At some level, the set's got a Caribbean feel, but at others it's quite funky – a great mix of Exuma's Bahamian roots and some of the headier sounds that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heaven & Earth

Fantasy
Mercury, 1979. Very Good
A crowning moment from the Chicago scene of the late 70s – the second Mercury album from Heaven & Earth, and a stunner all the way through! The set's an undisputed groover right from the start – thanks to the massive arrangements from the great Floyd Morris – an artist who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ready For The World

Ready For The World
MCA, 1985. Very Good+
Classic post-Prince commercial 80s soul! Even though Prince, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and even Andre Cymone are nowhere in sight, this classic 80s LP could just as well have come out of Minneapolis as Flint, Michigan, and we mean that in the best possible way. "Oh Sheila" has ... LP, Vinyl record album
