Nothing But A Man – Original Soundtrack

LP (Item 25226) Motown, 1965 — Condition: Very Good

An unusual soundtrack to a great little film – a powerful narrative from the 60s, but one that's served up here with a set of Detroit soul! The music on the album isn't new for the film – but it is a tasty batch of Motown tracks, put together by the producers of the record because the music "had its original public acceptance as the popular recorded music of the period and climate surrounding the scene of the action [of the film]." Titles include "Mickey's Monkey", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "I'll Try Something New", and "That's The Way I Feel" by The Miracles; "Fingertips Part 2" by Stevie Wonder; "Way Over There" by The Marvelettes; "Bye Bye Baby" by Mary Wells, "Come On Home" by Holland & Dozier; and "Love Is Like A Heat Wave" by Martha & The Vandellas.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing – a great copy!)

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.

Miracles

Do It Baby
Motown, 1974. Sealed
It's the mid 70s, and The Miracles have been deserted by Smokey – but fortunately the group was extremely well trained in the harmony department, and this album's just about as good as anything they did with him on Motown! The record's got an excellent smooth harmony soul style – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

In The Pocket
Motown, 1981. Very Good+
An album that definitely lives up to the title promised by The Commodores – a record that takes all their raw funky energy of the early years, and fuses it into a new groove that would catapult the sextet to superstardom! The sound is commercial, but still has a pretty fresh sort of feel too ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1973. Very Good
Way more than just a "best of" – as the record is more like a full Spinners album for Motown – issued as a way of bringing together some of the best singles the group recorded for the label! The work's not really hits – at least not at the level of the group's later ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Here, My Dear
Motown, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Wonderful stuff – and one of our favorite-ever Marvin Gaye albums! This is the legendary two-record set that Marvin wrote and recorded as an alimony payment to his ex-wife Anna Gordy (the story's pretty long, and we won't get into it here – suffice it to say that when stars get a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1960s/1970s. Near Mint-
In our humble opinion, just about every track that Marvin recorded for Motown is "great" – but since this set's focused on the hits, we're happy to accept their track selection, and admit they do a pretty good job of covering most of the big bases – early solo gems, duet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jermaine Jackson

Frontiers
Motown, 1978. Very Good
Jermaine didn't really hit his stride making up tempo bass heavy funk until Let's Get Serious, which followed this album a few years later, but this set has a few moments that are stretching towards that high water mark in his career. Overall, it's a rather slick, highly produced affair, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1965. Very Good+
The Four Tops' second album – and quite possibly the most hitbound of all their early Motown work! The album's overflowing with classic numbers – and features the perennial favorites "I Can't Help Myself" and "It's The Same Old Song" – as well as a totally ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martha & The Vandellas

Greatest Hits
Motown, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Titles include "Come & Get These Memories", "Love Is Like A Heat Wave", "Dancing In The Street", "Love Makes Me Do Foolish Things", "Nowhere To Run", and "A Love Like Yours". LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Commodores
Motown, 1977. Very Good-
A classic self-titled set from The Commodores – not their debut album, but a record that really broke them out of the box and exposed the group to a huge new audience! The album hits perfectly on both sides of the group's strengths – the tight ensemble funk on which they were raised, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Let's Get It On
Motown, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
An amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Covay

Super Dude I
Mercury, 1973. Near Mint-
A fantastic early 70s set from Don Covay – probably best known for his 60s hits on Atlantic Records, but really winning us all over again with this smoking set for Mercury! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but isn't just southern soul – as a wealth of 70s influences filter into ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wham!

Wham!
GRT, 1978. Sealed
Kind of a rock/soul album – recorded in Nashville, but with a sound that reminds us of some of the east coast mid 70s underground, particularly the funky groups on Buddah and Scepter that had a crossover sound. Some tracks are uptempo, with a club-heavy string section – and others are ... LP, Vinyl record album
