Loaded With Goodies

LP (Item 183519) BJM, 1985 — Condition: Very Good+
A great set of female soul from D.C.'s Four Jewels (aka the Jewels) – who recorded some great sides for Checker and other labels in the 60s – nearly as strong as any indie harmony soul of the era! If fate dealt a different hand, the Jewels could have had a career that rivaled bigger named female soul groups – but if they never went on to a Ronettes-like career high they at least left the world some great music!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s pressing. Cover has a small bit of tape on the back.)

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.

Minnie
Capitol, 1979. Very Good+
The last full album recorded by Minnie Riperton before she left our planet all too soon – and a killer batch of work that really has us wondering how great the world of soul music would have been, had Minnie stuck around to keep on growing into the 80s and 90s!

Bunky, 1967. Near Mint-
Classic Chicago soul recorded under the aegis of the great Bill Bunky Sheppard!

Dr John

Gris Gris
Atco, 1968. Very Good
The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches!

Them Changes
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark crossover album – featuring Buddy Miles' mixed Freedom Express group, and a heavy jazz-rock sound that would soon dominate the charts with other groups.

8th Day
Invictus, 1971. Near Mint-
The first album by 8th Day – a record with a bit of a complicated pedigree, but a massive amount of 70s Detroit soul as well!
