It's In His Kiss (Shoop-Shoop)

LP (Item 20555) Vee Jay, 1964 — Condition: Very Good-

A key set of early work from Betty Everett – and a great document of the strength of her early soul on Vee Jay! Although the title hit is quite familiar (and possibly a bit overplayed), Betty was a great vocalist with a wide command of material even at this early point in her career – and the album has her running through numbers that easily step between jazzy, bluesy, and soulful modes that beautifully bridge the worlds of soul and R&B! You might want to skip past the title hit, lest it color your judgment of the record, because there are loads of nice tracks on here, like "It Hurts To Be In Love", "Until You Were Gone", "The Prince of Players", and "I Need You So".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono rainbow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has black electrical tape holding the seams and spine and some surface wear.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Best Of Dee Clark
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Sealed
Classic Chicago soul from the great Dee Clark – one of the most versatile vocalists ever to work for Vee Jay Records, as you'll hear on this set!

Vee Jay, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A rare album of classic doo wop – from one of Chicago's greatest harmony groups!

Blue Magic

Blue Magic
Atco, 1974. Very Good-
The start of a tremendous run from Blue Magic – easily one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s, a quintet we'd place in a rare class with heavy hitters like The Stylistics or The Moments! The album's smooth and sweet, but never slick – perfectly arranged by the great Norman ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
About as classic as you can get with the Staple Singers!

All the best elements for Lou's Capitol work are in place – arrangements by HB Barnum, production by David Axelrod, and a hip batch of pop tracks that really push Lou into a whole new dimension!

Warner, 1982. Very Good- 2LP
The record that forever put Prince on the map – a legendary set that took him from being an under-appreciated soul singer to a lasting pop music legend!

Weird World, 1978. Very Good-
Blowfly's second trip into the Zodiac – a free-wheeling, head-tripping party that's even rawer than the first set! Tracks, as usual, are based on grooves from popular soul songs of the time – hidden enough in the lyrics, and at times just spare funky vamping, which provides a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

Poet
Beverly Glen, 1982. Very Good
The first of Bobby's highly successful Poet albums from the early 80s – wonderfully done albums that showed the world that he was still very much on top of his game at the time! The sound here is great – still with that older Womack rasp and warmth, but also done in a slightly smoother ... LP, Vinyl record album
