This Love Is Real

LP (Item 22424) Brunswick, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Wonderful work from Jackie Wilson's years on the Chicago scene – a time when the singer was able to really find a way to put his excellent vocals to great new use – stretching out here with sublime production from Carl Davis, and backings from the great Willie Henderson! In his early years, Jackie's vocals were great, but the setting wasn't always perfect – yet by the time of his classic album, he's definitely corrected that lack – by working with some sublime studio talents, and a host of great songwriters too. The tunes have this hip style that really lets Wilson loose – not entirely in Curtom mode, but maybe with some of the more mature themes that were also showing up in the work of Gene Chandler or Jerry Butler at the time. Titles include the sublime hit "This Love Is Real (I Can Feel Those Vibrations)" – plus "Think About The Good Times", "Love Changed Her Face", "Say You Will", "Love Uprising", "Let This Be A Letter (To My Baby)", and "Don't Leave Me".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner and surface wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

One of the harder funk albums by Tower Of Power – done with a hard-driving horn-heavy groove, slathered up in East Bay Grease!
