Fast Break

LP (Item 26479) Motown, 1979 — Condition: Very Good+
Billy Preston & Syreeta handled the music for this slightly-lame, kind of strange Gabe Kaplan vehicle from the late 70s. The music is relatively fine, although the album lacks any totally funky moments. Instrumentals include "Books & Basketball", "Half Time", "The Big Game", and "Welcome To Cadwaller". Also includes regular and disco versions of "Go For It", the theme of the movie.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In the textured cover, includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp, light wear, and a name in pen. Labels have a name in pen.)

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.

Baby It's Me
Motown, 1977. Near Mint-
An overlooked gem from Diana Ross – a set that's got a great mix of smooth grooves and tight soul numbers – all handled by 70s superproducer Richard Perry – and set to arrangements from Gene Page! Ross has this confident way of serving up the vocals, but an approach that's not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

In The Pocket
Motown, 1981. Near Mint-
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!

Diana Ross

Diana Ross (1970)
Motown, 1970. Very Good
A landmark record for Diana – her first solo effort after leaving the Supremes, and a well-conceived batch of tracks produced by Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson!

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

Tears Of A Clown (aka Make It Happen)
Motown, 1967. Very Good
About as classic as you can get for late 60s Miracles! Smokey's vocals are in perfect form, and the group still has that 60s falsetto harmony sound, with lots of fragile bits and strong group backing. Includes the huge hit "Tears Of A Clown", plus a motherlode of great originals that ... LP, Vinyl record album

First Choice

Gold Mind, 1979. Very Good+
Rochelle and the girls are in full force on this late 70s Salsoul groover – with production by Norman Harris and Tom Moulton!

RB Greaves

RB Greaves (Atco)
Atco, 1969. Very Good+
The amazing debut of RB Greaves – a soul singer with a difference!

Aretha Franklin

Aretha Now
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
One of a handful of crucial early Aretha Franklin albums for Atlantic – and a key example of her genius pairing with arranger Arif Mardin!

Street Player
ABC, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
Stunning work from Rufus & Chaka Khan – still very much at the height of their powers on this late 70s release – and still doing things at a level that nobody else can touch! The blend of jazz and soul is completely sublime – given a bit of extra help on arrangements by Clare ... LP, Vinyl record album
