All Day Music

LP (Item 24098) United Artists, 1971 — Condition: Near Mint-

A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all served up with this ultra-hip East LA sort of vibe that's way more interested in finding the best sweet spot in the music, than it is trying to figure out any labels for its groove! This approach rings out famously in the classic "Slipping Into Darkness" – which gets a 7 minute workout here – but the whole thing is great, and other titles include the seminal "Baby Brother", plus "Nappy Head", "Get Down", and "There Must Be A Reason".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some surface wear, aging, and lightly bent corners.)

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.

War delivers the word, and a whole lot more as well – that amazing blend of styles that always made the group way more than just the sum of its parts!

Walter Jackson

Good To See You
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Very Good+
Sophisticated soul from the great Walter Jackson – one of the best voices ever to come out of the Chicago soul scene, and a wonderful interpreter of just about any material!

Mandrill

Solid
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
A tasty set from Mandrill – one of their first records away from the Polydor label, but every bit as great as later efforts for that company, especially Mandrilland. The overall sound is a bit smoother than some of their full-out funky albums – but in a way that really helps blend ... LP, Vinyl record album

Garnet Mimms

As Long As I Have You
United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A classic set by one of the greatest soul singers of the 60s – filled with strong original tunes taken completely over the top by Garnet's incredible vocals!

Southroad Connection

Ain't No Time To Sit Down
United Artists, 1979. Near Mint-
A heavy bit of boogie from Southroad Connection – a large ensemble funk outfit with a warm and clubby style! The tracks on the set burn along in a nice late disco mode – with plenty of real instrumentation and small band rhythms at the bottom, but a polished groove overall that nicely ...

Brand New Funk

Brand New Funk '78
Vibration, 1978. Very Good+
A totally excellent album of funky cuts – all played with a slick electric sound that was sort of a mix of LA g-funk riffs with smoother east coast studio grooving. The band includes Wood Brass & Steel/Sugarhill/Tackhead members Skip McDonald and Doug Wimbush, plus some nice reed work by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan

Chaka Khan
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
Great stuff – and one of the gems that Arif Mardin produced for Chaka during her immediate solo years after leaving Rufus. Mardin's sweet soulful arrangements are a perfect fit for Chaka's voice – not only on soul tracks like "Tearin' It Up", "Got To Be There", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parachute, 1978. Very Good+
A great mix of tight grooves and mellower tunes from 7th Wonder – a group who share some of the righteous roots of the Earth Wind & Fire generation (as you might guess from their imagery here), but who come across with a sound that's much more straightforward! The album was recorded in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Chandler & Jerry Butler

One & One
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
A classic collaboration between 2 of the godfathers of Chicago soul – recorded at a time when both of them had emerged as proven big-sales artists, and were given the freedom to experiment in different styles with side projects like this. Here, they're singing in almost a Curtis Mayfield-esqu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, Late 60s/Mid 70s. Very Good+ 3LP Gatefold
A great set of Stevie's best tracks for Motown! 3 LPs deep, with 40 tracks in all, mostly from the late 60s, with a handful of numbers from the early 70s, including a few goodies that are getting tougher to find on wax. Includes "Hey Love", "Angie Girl", "Yester-Me, ... LP, Vinyl record album
