Odetta Sings

LP (Item 2045) Polydor, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good

Quite different than the usual Odetta album – and a record that has the folk singer running through some hipper more modern numbers, often with a bit of a funky twist! Some tracks were recorded in Muscle Shoals with a small combo that includes Roger Hawkins, Eddie Hinton, and Jimmy Johnson – but the best tunes were recorded in LA, with Carole King on piano and some tight arrangements by Jimmie Haskell. The LP includes Odetta's original funky track "Hit Or Miss", which is a very nice groover – plus other tracks like "Give A Damn", "Mama Told Me Not To Come", "Bless The Children", and "Movin It On".  © 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.

Roy Ayers

Vibrations
Polydor, 1976. Very Good+
One of Roy Ayers' greatest albums of the 70s – a set that tightens up the groove from previous Polydor productions, yet still keeps all the soul intact! The record picks up the style begun with the Mystic Voyage album, and pushes it to some slightly tighter territory – a more focused ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

For The Sake Of Love
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
One of our favorite Isaac Hayes albums from the post-Stax years – a wonderful late 70s set that has the man returning strongly to the mellow roots of his early solo years! Ike sounded great on his disco tracks at the time – but we really love his mature, laidback way of laying down a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peaches & Herb

2 Hot!
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
A mega-hit from Peaches & Herb – best known for the crossover classic "Reunited", but equally great for a host of modern soul groovers! The duo first achieved fame at the end of the 60s – through a set of key pop soul tracks that had a warm and sweet finish. Here, though ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Ray

Garden Of Love
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
One of the coolest club projects of the 70s – a set of tracks based around the keyboards of Don Ray, but handled with lots of electronic disco touches from Cerrone! The pair are great arrangers on their own, but together they really make some magic – kind of a leaner take on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1979. Very Good
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

Ray Goodman & Brown

Ray, Goodman, & Brown II
Polydor, 1980. Very Good
Probably the best album Ray, Goodman, and Brown cut after they dissolved The Moments, and moved to Polydor. Despite some more modern soul production than their classic recordings, their harmonies are excellent, and their voices are in totally top form. The LP includes their classic "Happy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alton McClain & Destiny

Gonna Tell The World
Polydor, 1981. Very Good+
A sublime set from Alton McClain & Destiny – one of the hippest female soul trios ever – and a group who definitely work at a level that's far above most of their contemporaries! The group's got a jazzy flourish here that really deepens their sound – a strong influence from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, Early 70s. Very Good
A nice one from Irene – a bit heavier on the soul tip than some of her earlier work, with strong arrangements by Horace Ott that have a slightly southern feel to them. The cut "The World Needs What I Need" is a great one – and other tracks include "Words", "A ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

Tear To A Smile
Polydor, 1975. Near Mint-
One of the best early soul albums by Roy Ayers! Roy's working here with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Edwin Birdsong, William Allen, Harry Whitaker, and other hip players – a perfect crew to forge Roy's unique blend of jazz and soul. This is perhaps the first record to really have Roy stretching out ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cindy Valentine

Secret Rendez-vous
Polydor, 1987. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

Poet II
Beverly Glen, 1984. Very Good+
One of Bobby's biggest albums of the 80s – and a smooth soulful set that features some nice guest work from the likes of George Benson, Patti Labelle, and Wilton Felder. We're a bit more partial to Bobby's earlier work, but his voice is always a treasure, with a raspy soulful edge that never ... LP, Vinyl record album

Little Eva

Loco-Motion
Dimension, 1962. Near Mint-
Not just a key record from the lovely Little Eva, but also a key moment for the young Carole King – who co-wrote the record, conducted the group, and also did the arrangements with help from Claus Ogerman! If you know the title hit, you'll know the groove here – a great raw take on 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
