Mr Big Stuff

LP (Item 22587) Stax, 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-

Jean Knight's classic – and a monumental album of funky female soul that was one of the best albums in the "second generation" Stax era! You probably know the title cut, as it was her biggest hit, and the inspiration for loads of "answer" songs (some of which came from the James Brown camp!) – but the whole album's great, and filled with raw female soul material produced by Wardell Quezquerque with an edge that's a bit harder than the usual Stax set of the time! Titles include "Mr Big Stuff", "Take Him", "Think It Over", "Your Six Bit Change", and "You City Slicker".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original UK pressing, in a heavy US cover.)

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.

Staple Singers

Be What You Are
Stax, 1973. Very Good+
Warmly grooving 70s soul from The Staple Singers – recorded in a fuller Memphis mode that's miles from their gospel roots, but still plenty darn nice!

Sam & Dave

Double Dynamite
Stax, 1966. Very Good
Sublime early Stax work from Sam & Dave – the kind of record that forever changed the way the male voice was used in group soul music!

Jammed Together
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good
Cropper meets up with the deep soul of Pops Staples and the southern blues of Albert King – for a heavy-duty session that's clearly aimed at the crossover scene.

Mar-Keys

Damifiknow
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good-
A great bit of Memphis funk from the 70s! The 60s version of The Mar-Keys was more of a rocking instrumental group – but the 70s version has a much harder sound, and a lot more of a tendency to funk things up. This album features them running through instrumental versions of a number of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Life (black cover)
Epic, 1968. Very Good
Killer work from Sly & The Family Stone – hard-grooving, fast-funking, and really setting the scene for countless groups to come!
