Tellin' It

LP (Item 24859) Hi Records, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

It's the mid 70s, but Ann's still very much in classic form – with thanks to arrangements and production by Willie Mitchell and backing by Andrew Love, Wayne Jackson, and James Mitchell – and sultry, soulful vocals from Ann! There's a bit more of a groove-oriented production style here than before – but it comes off very nicely, and works wonders with Ann's deeply burning vocal approach. This album stands up stronger next to it's predecessor, the great I Can't Stand The Rain album, better than we remembered – we're glad to tell that! Titles include "Come To Mama", "I Don't Lend My Man", "Love Played A Game", "Beware", "It Was Jealosy", "Doctor Love Power", and "Put Yourself In My Place" and more.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has ring & edge wear and a cutout hole.)

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.

Hi Records, 1971. Very Good+
Ann Peebles sings straight from the heart on this classic early set for Hi Records – a record that's to female vocals what Al Green's work of the time meant to male soul! As with Green's Hi Records of the time, Willie Mitchell is firmly in charge of production and backings – working ... LP, Vinyl record album

If This Is Heaven
Hi Records, 1977. Sealed
Classic Hi material from Ann Peebles! If This Is Heaven is a few years later than the much loved early 70s material, but she's still working in a killer groove – and with sweet. warm arrangements from Willie Mitchell.

Al Green

Belle Album
Hi Records, 1977. Very Good-
Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar – stepping out from under the protective wing of Willie Mitchell, and doing a surprisingly great job overall! Al does get a bit of help in the studio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Green Is Blues
Hi Records, 1972. Very Good+
Well, we don't know if we'd say that Al Green is blues – because he's still singing in his wonderfully sweet Memphis soul style – but this album definitely has a sound that gives a nod to the classic bluesy soul that inspired Al's work in the years before he put things together with his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Otis Clay

I Can't Take It
Hi Records, 1977. Near Mint-
A great mix of modes – and a set that represents a real turning point in the career of Otis Clay! The rougher edges of Clay's Chicago soul are warmed up here substantially by producer Willie Mitchell – bubbling up some Memphis soul for Otis, in a style that's similar to some of his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1977. Very Good-
A stone killer from OV Wright – a record that's got all the raw, deeply soulful vocals we love in his early work – mixed with some wicked 70s Hi Records production from Willie Mitchell! Imagine an Al Green record, but with rawer vocals, and you've got a good idea of the feel of this ... LP, Vinyl record album

OV Wright

Live In Japan
Hi Records/Victor (Japan), 1979. Very Good+
OV Wright at the end of the 70s – working live in front of a very enthusiastic Japanese crowd, and in a groove that's right up their with his best work from earlier in the decade! In fact, there's a rawness here that you won't always find on Wright's other records – great live backing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Mitchell

Willie Mitchell Live
Hi Records, 1977. Near Mint-
What a strange one! The title says "Willie Mitchell Live", but then the back says "All tracks previously released on Hi Records." Clearly, the Memphis bunch are knob-twiddling here, and adding fake applause to some of Willie's better instrumental moments from the old days. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Full Of Fire
Hi Records, 1976. Near Mint-
Hi Records perfection from the mighty Al Green – slightly later than some of his key early hits, but a record that shows Green still taking fire on all burners! Production is by the team of Al and Willie Mitchell – in a mode that's slightly fuller and more updated than before, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Have A Good Time
Hi Records, 1976. Near Mint-
Although the date of this one might make you think that Al's softening it up a bit, that's definitely not the case! If anything, the record's a bit rougher than some of his earlier albums on Hi – with Willie Mitchell still working on production and arrangements, but perhaps not crossing all ...
