LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Amazing work from the great Jon Lucien – and probably his best-ever record! The album has Jon hitting a totally unified vision of spacey soul – bringing in elements of Brazilian music and touches of his Carribean roots, fusing them together with a sweet jazzy style and one of the most compelling voices we've ever heard in soul music. It takes courage to be this gentle and sincere, and although the record was never a hit when it was released, it's been a perpetual favorite of groovers for many many years – thanks to the depth of Lucien's lyrics, and the unique range of rhythms in the set! Includes the funky "Would You Believe in Me", the space "Lady Love", and the tracks "Kuenda", "Satan", "Love Everlasting", and soooo many more. Essential soul from one of the 70's most righteous artists – and probably the best place to start sampling his rich career!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tan label pressing. Cover has light wear and a spot of white paint on front.)

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.

Jon Lucien

Romantico
Zemajo/Precision, 1982. Near Mint-
A warmly crafted set that Jon Lucien recorded on his own after bigger fame at Columbia and RCA – and a nice little record that shows that the Lucien magic was still very much in place! The set's got a gentler groove than some of his earlier records – less ambitiously jazzy, and almost ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
A posthumous collection of material that Sam recorded for RCA before his untimely death – not really a greatest hits collection, but a lot better than the usual "house cleaning" type of record that gets issued in this sort of situation! Arrangements are by Stan Applebaum, Jimmie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Reflections
RCA, 1977. Near Mint-
An obscure chapter in Johnnie Taylor's career – recorded between work at Stax and Columbia, with production and arrangements by Don Davis, who was a seminal force in guiding Johnnie's career. The album's a really strong one – with material that's a bit rootsier than the Columbia years, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Evelyn Champagne King

Face To Face
RCA, 1983. Very Good+
Evelyn Champagne King will always be most popularly remembered for her massive disco pop crossover hits of the late 70s, but she progressed really nicely throughout the 80s, keeping up with the evolving dancefloor soul sounds of the times – and Face To Face is a lean, clubby electro soul and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jose Feliciano

Just Wanna Rock N Roll
RCA, 1975. Near Mint-
A bit of the rock n roll you might expect from the title, but an album that's still also very firmly in the best spirit of Jose Feliciano's early 70s classics for RCA! The title element seems to come through in stronger use of electric guitar than before – which makes for less of Jose's ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1981. Near Mint-
A great 80s groove from Thelma Houston – a set with arrangements that are leaner and meaner than before, still topped with those amazing soul diva vocals! Arrangements on the set are handled by George Tobin & Mike Piccirillo – who really give the album a nice sort of focus – ... LP, Vinyl record album

DJ Rogers

Love, Music & Life
RCA, 1977. Near Mint-
Like all of DJ's RCA LPs, this one's a very nice batch of smooth mellow soul, with tight arrangments that have DJ on electric piano and other keyboards, and singing in his beautiful rich voice. Titles include "Love Is All I Need", "Saved By Love", "Love Is On The Way" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Evelyn Champagne King

So Romantic
RCA, 1984. Near Mint-
Evelyn King's still gliding high here – working with that upbeat, catchy style that really helped her hit big during the early 80s – a perfect fit for the hook-heavy sound of her vocals! The mode's a bit like Denise Williams at the time, although maybe a bit less commercial – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Delores Hall

Hall-Mark
RCA, 1973. Near Mint-
A great bit of 70s soul from Delores Hall – a singer we only know from this one album on RCA! The set's got a really great full-on sound – production by Billy Jackson, and some fully soulful arrangements by Wade Marcus – with a dope mix of strings and tight rhythms that make even ...

NYCC (New York Community Choir)

Make Every Day Count
Sunbar/RCA, 1978. Near Mint-
A really beautiful little album from NYCC – the name-shortened version of the New York Community Choir, stepping out here with a sound that's even better than their RCA debut! NYCC draw on a strong secular/spiritual tradition of work by The Art Reynolds Singers or Voices Of East Harlem ... LP, Vinyl record album
Govinda, 1978. Near Mint-
A legendary album of spacey funk – originally conceived as a tribute to the deity Krishna, but a record with a much longer life of its own – thanks to years of support from global crate diggers! There's a really spiritual approach to soul music throughout – a style that might ... LP, Vinyl record album
