Mighty Joe Young

LP (Item 24872) Ovation, 1976 — Condition: Very Good

Modern electric blues from Chicago, featuring Mighty Joe on guitar and vocals, plus backing by a tight rocking band. There's some electric keyboards in the group, which gives it less of a rootsy sound than you'd expect – but the album's still pretty spare. Titles include "Takes Money", "Mean Hitchhiker", "I Give", "Love Bone", and "Take My Advice (She Likes The Blues & BBQ)".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Jermaine Jackson

Feel The Fire
Motown, 1977. Near Mint-
Jermaine's going the way of most of Motown at this point – popping the bass pretty heavily, and grooving in a smooth funky mode. The cuts that go too over the top with the funky stuff definitely lose us – but there's a few decent mellow soul tracks that redeem the album, and which keep ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linda Clifford

Let Me Be Your Woman
Curtom, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Linda Clifford goes a bit over the top with this one – a lavish double-length set, of the sort that ended up bankrupting the Curtom label during the late 70s! Linda's very much in full-disco mode, singing to long clubby arrangements by Gil Askey that have more strings than before – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marlena Shaw

Love Is In Flight
Verve/Polydor, 1988. Sealed
An overlooked bit of 80s soul from Marlena Shaw – and a mostly R&B-based album, despite it's appearance on Verve! Although the date is late, Marlena's still keeping the same vibe going that she used in her late 70s work for Columbia – a sophisticated mix of soul and jazz, handled ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linda Clifford

I'm Yours
Curtom/RSO, 1980. Near Mint-
A great collaboration between Linda Clifford and Isaac Hayes – done at a time when Hayes was really hitting his dancefloor stride! Ike's sound here is actually pretty great – arguably warmer and more deeply soulful than on some of Linda's other records from the time, and without too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nona Hendryx

Heat
RCA, 1985. Near Mint-
Nona's last album for RCA – and it's an edgy mid 80s dancefloor soul stormer that really helps solidify just how fearlessly creative Nona was in her solo years – as if we needed to be reminded! Nona's powerful, not-to-be-messed with vocals have the greatest presence of any element ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Berry

London Sessions
Chess, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Chuck Berry makes the same London move as some of his other Chess Records contemporaries – and the result is one of Chuck's best albums from the later years! The set's not as star-studded as other efforts of this nature – but that's fine with us because Chuck really shines as the lead ... LP, Vinyl record album
Collectables, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great collection that appears to take the best of her hits for the Loma label, as well as the stuff she recorded for All Platinum. Hard southern soul sound, by a lady who's always been overlooked. 20 tracks in all, including "Hypnotized", "I Can't Stop Lovin' My Baby", "Gi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Allen Toussaint

Southern Nights
Reprise, 1975. Near Mint-
Damn great work from Allen Toussaint – a record that was cut at a time when he'd really made his way into the mainstream of American music, yet could still come across with a hard New Orleans groove! The title cut, "Southern Nights", is a perfect illustration of this fact – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 60s/1974. Near Mint- 3LP Box
3 LP set from the 70's that brought together the live set that Dolphy recorded with Booker Little at the 5 Spot, which was floating around on separate discs before this. This set's got a handsome box around the discs, and brings the whole classic performance into focus – a task that's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1930s. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set
An excellent collection of Billie's 30s work for Columbia Records – featuring 3LPs worth of material, represented with much better sound than the original 78 rpm release of the songs. Billie's in the company of a host of great jazzmen – including Count Basie, Lester Young, Teddy Wilson ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, Late 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Some of the most heavenly pop ever recorded – and a wonderful 2LP collection of work from the later years of The Zombies! A big chunk of the set features work from the group's landmark Odyssey & Oracle – a tremendous album that we'd rank right up there with Pet Sounds for sheer 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shandar (France), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A classic late Ayler recording – a record that's probably better known to people as one of the "Nuits De La Fondation Maeght" concerts issued under one title or another. The set's a stellar live performance, and one of his few hard jazz recordings from this time. Ayler's on tenor ... LP, Vinyl record album
