Nobody But Lou

LP (Item 26826) Capitol, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

Great early stuff by Lou! No, the record doesn't have funky David Axelrod arrangements – but it does have some great jazzy backing by Benny Carter, which gives Lou's sweet soulful voice a great platform to riff off of. The record's one of Lou's jazziest, and it's mostly tight and swinging – without some of the cliches on other work of this sort. Titles include "Nobody But Me", "If I Had My Life To Live Over", "Power Of Love", "It's Monday Every Day", and "Two Tickets West".  © 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.

... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1986. Near Mint-
The voice of Lou Rawls is wonderful in so many different settings – in early gospel work with the Pilgrim Travelers, in 60s soul with HB Barnum and David Axelrod, and even hitting a Philly groove in the late 70s! Here, Lou takes on a whole new sound – working with more of an 80s soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Rawls

Shades Of Blue
Philadelphia International, 1980. Near Mint-
One of Lou Rawls' last albums for Philly International, and a really nice departure from the style of Lou's earlier hits for the label. It's got a sophisticated jazzy mode that has Rawls often singing with sparer piano backings than the fuller strings of the late 70s – in a way that's sort ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1979. Very Good+
One of Lou's classics for Philly International – a warm mix of smooth soul and adult vocals, handled with some great arrangements by Dexter Wansel and Thom Bell. There's less standout singles on this set than previous Philly records, but Lou's class and quality makes nearly every track come ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1966. Very Good
One of the greatest albums to ever sum up the genius of Lou Rawls in the 60s – a brilliant live set put together with the talents of David Axelrod! The record perfectly captures the easy-going soul of Rawls in the early years – a natural approach to his music that made him one of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rock Me Tonight
Capitol, 1985. Very Good
Freddie Jackson was certainly one of the biggest new soul stars of the 80s – and this debut LP is still a treasure!

Tavares

Future Bound
Capitol, 1978. Very Good
Tavares are at the height of their early career here – stepping out in a set of smooth soul tunes arranged by hitmeister Freddie Perren – the standout of which is the group's major disco classic "More Than A Woman"! That tune actually manages to outshine most of the other ... LP, Vinyl record album

All Of You
Capitol, 1984. Near Mint-
Lillo Thomas has a mighty nice vocal style here – one that's a bit high in the spectrum, and which works perfectly with the sweet keyboards in the grooves! Thomas takes the lyrics right up to the top of the mix – and floats them way high above the basslines, but still in a way that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1983. Near Mint-
A Capitol Rare killer from Chew – lost funky soul from the early 80s, put together with plenty of emphasis on the basslines! The group are smaller than the usual funk ensemble of the time, and mighty tight – playing here with the kind of well-crafted funky lines you'd hear from some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
