Duck

LP (Item 2710) Mirwood, 1967 — Condition: Very Good
A northern soul classic! Jackie's the same guy as Earl from Bob & Earl, and combined with his excellent work in that duo, he's one heck of a big force in underground 60s soul! His hard groover "The Duck" has always been a favorite on soul dancefloors around the world, and it's offered up here in 2 parts – along with some other nice groovers, like "Do The Temptation Walk", "The Neighborhood", "The Bounce", "Everybody Jerk", and "Do You Love Me". The arrangements are by James Carmichael, and they've got a wall of sound mix of guitar, piano, bass, drums, and even a bit of vibes – all rolled into a tight northern groove that's still fresh nearly 40 years later!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing – and cover is great!)

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.

Cheryl Lynn

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album

One Way

Love Is
MCA, 1981. Very Good
A totally massive set from One Way – a record that has them sounding even better than ever – drawing on all the strengths of the previous few records, and really knocking it out of the park! Although the group's got a great way with a groove, the mellow cuts here are equally nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, 1981. Near Mint-
Classic 80s funk from Xavier – a group led by bassist Ernest Smith, who'd already had plenty of practice working with Isaac Hayes, The Midnight Movers, and The Coasters during their funky late 60s years! The groove here is similar to some of the other tight funk groups on Liberty at the time ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, Mid 60s/Early 70s. Very Good
10 of Chuck's best soul cuts, originally recorded for the Wand label. This stuff virtually defines the male side of the NY uptown soul sound, as you'll hear in tracks like "Any Day Now", "I Don't Want To Cry", "I Wake Up Crying", "Tell Him I'm Not Home", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Koko, 1972. Near Mint-
Wonderful mellow soul from Luther Ingram – and a record that gave the south one of its greatest soul anthems of the 70s! "If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don't Want To Be Right" is one of those genre-defining tunes – a slow-burning track that shows a new level of maturity for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

In Square Circle
Tamla, 1985. Near Mint- Gatefold
Titles include "Part-Time Lover", "Overjoyed", "I Love You Too Much", "Stranger On The Shore Of Love", "Spiritual Walkers", "Land Of La La", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

SOS Band

SOS
Tabu, 1980. Very Good+
The seminal first album from the SOS Band – a record that really showcases the new sound of soul for the 80s, yet still holds onto all the best elements of the previous decade too! These guys have a great ear for groovers – well-demonstrated by the play they got on the dancefloor ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1971. Near Mint-
A sweet set of late 60s groovers – some of Stevie's best work for Motown, and proof that even at a young age, his talents were rich enough to warrant a second volume of greatest hits! Titles hardly need introduction – as the album includes classics like "Heaven Help Us All", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1964. Very Good+
It's only 1964, early in Motown's history, but Mary's managed to rack up a considerable batch of hits – no surprise since she was one of the label's best female singers of the early years! This set features 12 classics by Mary – including "You Beat Me To The Punch", "My ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rick James

Come Get It
Gordy, 1978. Very Good+
Rick James' first LP for Motown subsidiary Gordy, that was to provide the blueprint for his later success. James' trademark pop bass funk style is fully formed on this one already, and though we may once have thought little of the slick production and style, looking back this stuff has a good bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie Smith

Afro-desia
Groove Merchant, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Excellent work by Lonnie Smith – a free-flowing album of long jazzy grooves that's kind of an extension of his Blue Note albums, touched with more of the electricity of his 70s playing! There's some killer rhythms on the album – courtesy of drummers Jamey Hudad and Ben Riley, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1974. Very Good+
One of the last Gary Bartz albums for Prestige – and a really unique session with a different feel than some of his earlier work! Gary's still got plenty of angular funk in his sound here – thanks to some edgey keyboards from Hubert Eaves – but he's also tightened things up a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
