Where Soul Lives

LP (Item 22041) Imperial, 1967 — Condition: Near Mint-

Obscure bluesy soul, recorded for Imperial, but sounding more like something that should have been on their Minit subsidiary. Oddly, there's no picture of Baby Ray on the cover, leaving us to find him even more mysterious than before – especially since we've never seen any other records by him. Possibly, he's another artist recording under this name, but we're not sure. Titles include "There's Something On Your Mind" (which was a minor hit in 1966), "Sadie (The Avon Lady)", "House On Soul Hill", and "The Wild Side Of Life".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Imperial, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Hard soul from Jimmy – about as raw as can be, with a mixture of New Orleans R&B and James Brown shouting informing most of the cuts on the record.
