When A Woman Loves A Man

LP (Item 25440) Tower, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Great work from this lovely vocalist from the 60s! The record features a core group of backing by the Ronnie Brown trio, plus some larger arrangements by Lincoln Mayorga – and the sound is nice and soulful, with a bit of a jazzy touch – in the manner of some of Nancy Wilson's work at Capitol. Includes a cover of Percy Sledge's big title hit, with the gender reversed as in the title, plus the tracks "It Hurts So Bad", "Nice & Easy", "Are You Ready For A Woman", and "Till The End Of Time".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Joy & Pain
Capitol, 1980. Very Good+
Classic modern soul from the legendary Frankie Beverly! The record's perhaps one of their best remembered – most likely for the killer cut "Joy & Pain", which has a great hook that's been sampled many times over the years. The record also features the wonderful "Southern ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monk Higgins

Heavyweight
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+
Quite possibly the best album ever from funky maestro Monk Higgins! The record's got some of his tighest work of the time – with plenty of tight breaks, nice keyboards, and soulful sax riffs – and Monk is going full-out on the arrangements, in the manner that he used for his best late ...

Freddie North

Friend
Mankind, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Excellent lost southern soul LP for the Mankind subsidiary of Nashboro/Excello. Freddie North sings in a sweet southern style, and he's backed by a nice set of professional arrangements by Jerry Williams. The record was recorded both in Muscle Shoals and Philly, for a mix of styles that was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blackbyrds

City Life
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
A fantastic album from this legendary jazz funk combo – a bit smoother than their first, but that's the great thing about it! The record has the band getting even tighter than before – coming up with an amazing jazz-inflected funk groove that still leaves us breathless after all these ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brook Benton

My Country
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
Forget Ray Charles or Solomon Burke! Even though we love them, we've always thought that Brook Benton was the absolute master of the country/soul crossover – and this album's one of his most overlooked gems! The album features Brook's rich soulful voice singing to tight Nashville ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stu Gardner & The Sanctified Sound

Stu Gardner & The Sanctified Sound
Volt, 1974. Near Mint-
Funky keyboard player Stu Gardner cut a few indie albums in LA during the late 60s, and most of those have gone onto be sought-after funky instrumental classics. This mid 70s album for Stax has a bit more of a soul sound to it, with fuller arrangements, and vocals on most of the tracks – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Emotions

Rejoice
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+
A huge hit for both The Emotions and Maurice White – whose Kalimba Productions handled this album in the same hit mode they'd been using for Earth Wind & Fire! There's a polished, soaring bounce her that definitely shows the Earth Wind & Fire touch – and which takes the girls ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70

Shakara
EMI (Nigeria), 1974. Good
The cover image here really demonstrates the charisma of Fela at his height – dozens of topless women, kneeling around the maestro and spelling out the number 70 – but to us, the music is what really shows the man's power – a bold, progressive statement of the new energy bubbling ...

Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great stuff from Leonard Nimoy – one of his best records, largely because he's upfront about the Spock side of his persona! As is well known, Nimoy really thought of himself as more of a serious singer than just a pointy-eared alien – so other records have a lot more of him singing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good
Wonderful stuff by Nat – truly one of his greatest Capitol vocal albums, and set to great arrangements by Nelson Riddle, very much in a classic mode. Tracks include heartbreakers like "Dinner For One, James" and "There Goes My Heart" – plus more lively standards ... LP, Vinyl record album
