Dude

LP (Item 25554) A&M, 1981 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Quincy Jones — Dude ... LP 22.99

A super-huge album from Quincy Jones – a record that's almost like Quincy's trying to show the whole younger generation that an older master like himself can still deliver the goods! The set was delivered right after Quincy helped out Michael Jackson on Off The Wall – and while it's got a few of the soulful touches of that set, it's also marked more deeply by the kind of work that Jones was turning out in the 70s – nicely focused with soulful vocals on most cuts, including some especially nice work from Patti Austin – a singer whose sophisticated style works perfectly for Quincy's groove. Titles include the killer "Ai No Corrida", plus "Razzamatazz", "Just Once", "Something Special", "Turn On The Action", "The Dude", "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me", "Velas", and "One Hundred Ways".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Vinyl has a small mark that clicks during "Razzamatazz" but plays fine otherwise.)

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.

Herb Alpert

Rise
A&M, 1979. Near Mint-
A whole new level of genius for Herb Alpert – a record that's light years away from his earlier work with the Tijuana Brass, and which has the trumpeter stepping strongly into the world of smooth jazzy fusion! The title track here went platinum the minute it was released – and became ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1979. Near Mint-
Arthur Adams is sure making sure his lady gets her due on this one! But apart from an unweildy title, the album's a great set of smooth mellow soul numbers – very much in the vein you'd expect from having "love" repeated so many times in the title. Backing is tighter than on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeffrey Osborne

Don't Stop
A&M, 1984. Sealed
... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1979. Near Mint-
The Merm's completely over the top here – belting out old-style lyrics over 70s disco backings – updating her already camp sound with an even campier one for the Studio 54 scene! Arrangements are by Peter Matz, who lets the rhythms take the lead – and titles include "There's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Douglas, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
The first album by the second group to call themselves the Last Poets – and as fierce a document of their rich talents as you'll ever find – bursting forth with anger and righteousness at a level as tight as Gil Scott-Heron's first album! The group here is the key second lineup of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry White & Love Unlimited Orchestra

Together Brothers – Original Soundtrack
20th Century, 1974. Very Good-
A stunner of a soundtrack from the maestro Barry White – his only entry into the blacksploitation film genre of the 70s, and a complete doozy throughout! For the album, Barry's stripped down the bigger space of his own records, and his Love Unlimited productions – into some shorter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Cooke

Try A Little Love
RCA, 1965. Very Good-
Released shortly after Sam's death, this is a beautiful batch of ballad tracks to remember how sweet his voice was. The production's a bit pop, but Sam's singing is as heavenly as ever. Titles include "When A Boy Falls In Love", "Try A Little Love", "Bridge Of Tears" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Undisputed Truth

Method To The Madness
Whitfield, 1976. Very Good-
A killer classic from the second chapter of the Undisputed Truth – that time when the group stepped away from their Motown home, and followed producer/creator Norman Whitfield to his own label in California! The shift of record companies also marks a cool shift in styles too – an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Urbie Green

Fox
CTI, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Smooth and silky jazz funk from trombonist Urbie Green – a record that's much more in a mainstream R&B fusion mode than his earlier work – yet also arranged by David Matthews in a soulful style that still keeps things pretty real on the best cuts! The group's a good one for the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Lloyd

Dream Weaver
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint-
A classic set from reedman Charles Lloyd – a set that really pushes forward all the experiments he'd begun in the Chico Hamilton group – and shows a bold move forward for rhythms in 60s jazz! The tracks are long, and spiral out wonderfully – but in ways that are different than ... LP, Vinyl record album
