Sun, Moon, & Herbs

LP (Item 20724) Atco, 1971 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

Mac really steps out on this one – pushing past his usual hip studio take on New Orleans soul, to a more expansive style that includes performances by a host of surprise guests like Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, PP Arnold, Graham Bond, and Doris Troy. That loping, trippy groove of John's is still firmly in place, shifted slightly – kind of a New Orleans meets post 60s London style – and titles include "Craney Crow", "Black John The Conqueror", "Zu Zu Mamou", and "Pots On Fiyo".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow label pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some edge wear and splitting in the top seam.)

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.

Dr John

Gris Gris
Atco, 1968. Near Mint-
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! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Curtis

Everybody's Talkin'
Atco, 1972. Very Good+
King Curtis' last album of studio work for Atlantic – pulled from a number of sessions recorded in the year before his untimely early death! The sound here is tightened up a bit from King's grooves of the 60s – done with a style that still draws on the Atlantic soul sound that Curtis ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impact

Impact
Atco, 1976. Very Good+
Plenty of Impact from this great Philly group – a soaring quartet who harmonize with some great Bobby Eli arrangements – at a level that shines as strongly as the best 70s work by Blue Magic or The Spinners! Impact never broke the big time as strongly, but they're a great group in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michel'le

Michel'le
Ruthless/Atco, 1989. Very Good+
Dre's second, and more successful venture into R&B (counting World Class Wreckin' Crew, of course). With a number of very well received pop R&B numbers, including "No More Lies", "Nicety", "Something In My Heart" and 'Keep Watchin'". 11 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1966. Very Good+
A landmark set of grooves by this excellent Detroit group – a trio who recorded for the local indie Karen, but got a much bigger boost towards fame when their record was picked up by Atlantic! The set's one of the killer 60s Motor Town sets produced by Ollie McLaughlin – and like the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ebony Rhythm Funk Campaign

Watchin' You, Watchin' Me
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1976. Very Good+
A perfect example of the old adage that the funkier the band's name is, the less funky their music will be! Not that the group's really that bad or anything – they're just not the all-out party jam you'd expect from an ensemble with "ebony" and "funk" in their name. The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level! Trouble Man is a heck of a wonderful surprise from an artist that most folks really only knew as a singer – a fantastically funky blacksploitation soundtrack, conceived and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cleveland Eaton & The Garden Of Eaton

Keep Love Alive
Ovation, 1979. Very Good+
A mixture of funky jazz, soul, and disco – recorded with a host of studio players and a smooth jazzy finish. The record's trying to keep the groove going from Eaton's Instant Hip LP – which was quite a minor hit for him – and although we love the bassist as a jazz player, most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara Lewis

Best Of Barbara Lewis
Atlantic, Mid 60s/1971. Very Good+
Some of the best non-Motown soul to ever come out of Detroit, and a brilliant example of the uptown soul sound of the 60's! Nearly every track's a winner, and this comp of Barbara's best 60's stuff includes lots of classics like "Baby, I'm Yours", "Hello Stranger", "Stop ... LP, Vinyl record album

Main Ingredient

Spinning Around
RCA, 1970. Very Good+
For some reason, RCA had a real penchant for repackaging and retitling a number of the albums cut by their big stars in the early 70's. This album's a repackaged version of the hard to find Tasteful Soul album, and it was released only a year or two after that one. It's got a different title and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family Stone

Fresh
Epic, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sly's leaping into the air on the cover of this one – and for good reason too, given the overall groove of the set! The album's a bit more stripped-down and upbeat than the previous few – almost more of a return to the simple funky style of the first albums, but with a slightly more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Temptations

Puzzle People
Gordy, 1969. Very Good+
A classic set of psychedelic soul from this fantastic 60s group! The record is one of the groundbreaking albums the Temps cut with producer Norman Whitfield – and it's a landmark session that perfectly showcases what Whitfield's full-on, guitar-heavy, bassy-bottom style could do for the ...
