New & Improved

LP (Item 21739) Atlantic, 1974 — Condition: Very Good

A great batch of sophisticated soul tracks, with sweet Philly arrangements by Thom Bell, and nice studio work by the usual suspects. Includes the massive track "Sadie", a longtime fave in Chicago, and recently redone by R. Kelly. Other titles include "Sitting On Top Of The World", "Then Came You", "There's No One Like You", "I've Got To Make It On My Own", and "Lazy Susan".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Quadraphonic pressing. Cover has a cutout notch, some edge wear, and a lightly bent corner.)

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.

Atlantic, 1976. Sealed
An album in the kind of "between the hits" years for The Spinners featuring lead vocalist Phillipe Wynne. The sound here isn't as right-on or soaringly confident as in earlier years – but there are some nice moments. Titles include "You're All I Need In Life", "Toni ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spinners

Labor Of Love
Atlantic, 1981. Sealed
A sweet little set that has the legendary Spinners teaming up with 70s disco maestro Michael Zager – in a set that has both artists offering up something nice and fresh in the process!

Aretha Now
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good
One of a handful of crucial early Aretha Franklin albums for Atlantic – and a key example of her genius pairing with arranger Arif Mardin!

Atlantic, 1976. Very Good
Quite possibly the best record ever by The Trammps – halfway between their roots in the early 70s east coast indie club scene, and the smoother approach of their later disco hits!

Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
A masterpiece of east coast harmony soul – and worth it for the title cut alone!

Atco/Atlantic, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
One of the coolest, funkiest records we've ever heard from Dr John – thanks to lots of guest help from The Meters! The vibe here is a bit tighter than some of Mac's previous records – not as trippy as his first few for Atco – but the sound is still nice and sharp, and Allen ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good
Given that Atlantic's big claim to fame with Aretha was that they took her from being a supper club jazz singer and made her a hard soul act, we've always been a bit surprised at the way they chose to hook her up with some Bacharach tunes after her first few sides – giving her a classier ...

Ten City

Foundation
Atlantic, 1989. Very Good

Atlantic, Late 60s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A sockin soul collection that features most of the best work that Wilson recorded for Atlantic Records in the 60s – much of it classic southern material, recorded in Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and a few other choice locations. The set's got a total of 24 tracks on 2LPs – and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
One of Aretha Franklin's greatest records – and a complicated batch of jazzy tunes that features arrangements and production by Quincy Jones!
