What Happened

LP (Item 22575) Brunswick, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

A stunning early set from The Artistics – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were one of the best Chicago soul groups at the end of the 60s! The harmonies are wonderful – smooth, but with a rough undercurrent too – balanced at a level that few groups could touch at the time, save maybe The Four Tops! Yet the style's way different than Motown, too – very much in that loping Brunswick soul style of the time, which means there's all these great grooves that really keep things going – even at mellower moments. Eugene Record produced and wrote most of the tracks – and titles include "What Happened", "Walking Tall", "With These Hands", "Why Did She Have To Leave Me", "When I'm Not Around", "Yesterday's Girl", and "Price Of Love".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some discoloration from age, light wear, and splitting in the spine.)

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.

Jackie Wilson

Woman, A Lover, A Friend
Brunswick, Early 60s. Very Good-
Dreamy work from Jackie – who's singing here over arrangements by Dick Jacobs that have a sweetly swaying romantic feel to them.

Warner, 1967. Near Mint-
A weird little record from Bill Cosby – a set that's not as all-out funky as some of his other vocal albums, but still pretty nice overall! The style here is more bluesy than soul-based, but production is still by Fred Smith, of 103rd Street Rhythm Band fame – and the album has a sense ... LP, Vinyl record album

A true pleasure indeed – easily one of the greatest records ever by the Ohio Players, and a perfect summation of all things great in their groove!

Isaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boppers (aka LA Boppers)

Boppers
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+
Classic jazzy vocal funk, produced by the At-Home productions team, and with the kind of scatting jazz harmonies that At-Home also worked with on the Side Effect albums. The group later went onto become the LA Boppers, and record for Mercury, but this album has more of a straight jazz funk feel, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Wycoff

Come To My World
RCA, 1980. Very Good+
A perfect example of the kind of sophisticated groove he had right from the start of his legendary run on RCA – the kind of vibe that maybe kept Wycoff off the charts at the time, but which has made him a favorite on the underground scene for years! Keyboards play a big part in the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
