Best Of Little Anthony & The Imperials

LP (Item 24104) United Artists/Veep, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled all the arrangments and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. Titles include "Hurt So Bad", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Our Song", "Get Out Of My Life", and "Going Out Of My Head".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original stereo pressing.)

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.

Lea Roberts

Lady Lea
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
A mixture of smooth LA soul with some deeper tendencies – Lea's second album for United Artists, and very much in the spirit of the first. Titles include "She Will Break Your Heart", "Lost In Your Love", "Chained To This Memory", "You're Gonna Need A ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1971. Very Good+
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own!

Ike & Tina Turner

Gospel According To Ike & Tina
United Artists, 1974. Sealed
Ike and Tina Turner take on a host of gospel classics – but really rework them with their own sort of early 70s energy! Ike re-arranged all the tunes here – and in a way, the album's one of the most inventive from the pair during this time – almost as if the familiar tunes were ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1976. Near Mint-
The title track to this one – "Right Back Where We Started From – was a real 70s monster, hitting big on AM radio and the dancefloors, and still kind of a guilty pleasure for us these days. The rest of the record's a bit spotty – but there's a few nice moments, like Maxine's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

Understanding
United Artists, 1972. Near Mint-
Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

Safety Zone
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
Sweet funky soul from the great Bobby Womack – a record that mixes Bobby's roots with some of the more righteous modes he picked up on Across 110th Street – blended here in a style that's completely sublime! The record was one of Womack's first to be entirely recorded on the west coast ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

Communication
United Artists, 1971. Very Good+
One of the all-time great ones from Bobby Womack – and a set that definitely helped push the singer into the mainstream of soul in the 70s!

Garnet Mimms & The Enchanters

Cry Baby & 11 Other Hits (2LP test pressing)
United Artists, 1965. Near Mint- 2LP
An excellent early Garnet Mimms LP on United Artists – one of the few albums he recorded (period!), and cut featuring vocal backings by his group The Enchanters. We looooove Garnet's vocals to death, rank them up there with the best of the 60s underground – singers like Darrell Banks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Terry Callier

Turn You To Love
Elektra, 1979. Very Good
Our favorite Elektra album by Terry – different than his earlier work for Cadet, with a smoother jazz-based style of backing. The change works surprisingly well for Terry, pushing him into a new sound that still preserves his honest soulful vocals. The album includes nice remakes of "Or ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impressions

One By One
ABC, 1965. Very Good
Classic 60s Impressions material, with the legendary lineup firmly in place, and the great Johnny Pate handling all arrangements – really giving them that sense of righteous power that pushed their music past a lot of the previous group soul sounds of the Chicago scene – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tower Of Power

Tower Of Power
Warner, 1973. Very Good+
One of the harder funk albums by Tower Of Power – done with a hard-driving horn-heavy groove, slathered up in East Bay Grease! The group's got a bit of the stoner funk sound that shows their Bay Area roots, but they're also a lot tighter than most of their California contemporaries, and feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
