Feelin Good

LP (Item 23637) Motown, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

Heavenly heavenly soul from one of the best voices in the Motown stable – the mighty David Ruffin, heard here at the height of his early solo powers! David's raspy vocals sound great next to the album's sparkling arrangements – really top-shelf late 60s Motown magic from Wade Marcus, David Van Depitte, Paul Riser, and Willie Shorter – all to grace a batch of tracks that are way more personal and original than some of the other label material at the time! Ruffin's sense of power and pride comes through right away – on a great batch of tracks that include "Loving You (Is Hurting Me)", "I Pray Everyday That You Won't Regret Loving Me", "What You Gave Me", "One More Hurt", "I Let Love Slip Away", "The Forgotten Man", and "I'm So Glad I Fell For You".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

David Ruffin

So Soon We Change
Warner, 1979. Near Mint-
Warm and wonderful soul from David Ruffin – key proof that the singer could keep on going strong, long after his earlier fame at Motown! The record's got a new sense of sophistication that really breaks David into new territory – a style that's nicely different than the backings Ruffin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1974. Near Mint-
A strange title, but a great little record – and a real righteous step forward for David Ruffin! Given Ruffin's work for Motown – both as a solo act and in The Temptations – we're hardly likely to associate him with rock and roll – but we can say that the record has David ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1966. Very Good+
Symphonic soul from The Supremes – a set that still has the trio working with the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland team, but with a full set of orchestral backings that help them hit even more class and sophistication than before! The ballads have these really lush arrangements – never ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1967. Very Good+
Classier than usual for the girls – as they move over to Broadway for a set of tracks penned by the Rodgers & Hart team, done up in a smooth Motown style that was probably designed to crossover, but which did so less than some of their straighter soul work. Still, even though the idea's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye & Mary Wells

Together
Motown, 1964. Very Good+
A great start to the Marvin Gaye duet mode of the 60s – an early pairing with Mary Wells, done back when she was one of the leading female singers at Motown! The style here is a bit more old school than some of the later Gaye duo albums – but there's plenty of charm in the tunes, as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Tops

Soul Spin
Motown, 1969. Sealed
Beautiful baroque soul from the Four Tops – and proof that the group could take any material and make it sound great! This Frank Wilson-produced set features a few Motown numbers by the group, but the real gems are actually the more familiar 60s pop hits – remade by the Tops in a style ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mary Wilson

Mary Wilson
Motown, 1979. Sealed
A post-Supremes disco effort from Mary Wilson – but one that comes off relatively well, especially considering how a session like this could flop if done poorly! Mary's getting some top-shelf help on the album – Hal Davis on production, Art Wright on arrangements, and a set of original ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1990. Sealed

Temptations

To Be Continued
Motown, 1986. Near Mint-
The Temptations are looking a bit cheesy on the cover here, but they still sound great – and the album's great proof that the group were one of the few from their generation who could always keep things up over the years! The production and instrumentation are definitely on the modern side, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Temptations

Together Again
Motown, 1987. Sealed
Titles include "I Wonder Who She's Seeing Now", "10 x 10", "Little Things", "Every Time I Close My Eyes", "Do You wanna Go With Me", "I Got Your Number", and "Look What You Started". LP, Vinyl record album
