Shirelles Swing The Most

LP (Item 27400) Pricewise, 1964 — Condition: Very Good

Beautiful stuff from one of the most soulful 60s pop girl groups – and proof that The Shirelles were always a cut above! The record's a great batch of hard to find songs by the group – including some great Goffin/King numbers – recorded with some surprisingly raw vocals that definitely keep The Shirelles more on the soul side of the spectrum than the pop one – set to some soaring uptown soul arrangements that are totally great! Titles include the classic hit "Oh No, Not My Baby", plus "Get Rid Of Him", "His Lips Get In The Way", "A Girl Is Not A Girl", "Please Go Away", "Lonesome Native Girl", "What Does A Girl Do", and "What A Sweet Thing That Was".  © 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.

Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good
A nice collection of tracks from this classic girl group, and one that has some nice lesser-known cuts mixed in with the chart busters. 15 tracks in all, including "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "Stop The Music", "Dedicated To The One I Love", "Everybody Loves A ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirelles

Happy & In Love
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
A great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album
Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good
By Golden Oldies, the girls mean tracks from a few years back, that were recorded for other labels and by other artists. Most of the work's still in the classic Shirelles mode, though – and titles include "My Prayer", "I Met Him On A Sunday", "Walkin Along", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clyde
Atlantic, Late 50s. Poor
We'll be the first to admit that for years, we never forgave Clyde McPhatter for leaving The Drifters – but as time has gone on, hearing records like this really have made us appreciate his greatness on his own! The record's a non-stop testament to McPhatter's vocal talents – a perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supremes

Bit Of Liverpool
Motown, 1964. Very Good+
It's always interesting to note the way that Berry Gordy tried to move Motown out of the ghetto of US soul indies, by attempting various moves to realign the music with other spheres bigger than the scope of Detroit soul. Sometimes these moves were clear "loss leaders" that wouldn't ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diana Ross

I'm Still Waiting
Motown, 1971. Near Mint-
Early solo work by Diana – mostly in a mode that steps off nicely from her late work with the Supremes, thanks to some expansive production by the Ashford & Simpson team (who also wrote most of the cuts), and arrangements by Paul Riser that mix strings and soul into the sophisticated pre-d ...

Cherrelle

Fragile
Tabu, 1984. Very Good+
Nothing Fragile here – as Cherrelle comes across with plenty of power on this debut LP – thanks to sharp production from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on some of the best cuts, and an overall groove that's right on the best side of early 80s soul! The Jam/Lewis tracks are heavy on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Bluesmith
Verve, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the hippest Jimmy Smith albums of the early 70s – a lean and mean, down and dirty, back to basics session for Verve – one that's got plenty of grit in the grooves! L:ike the Root Down album, this set is recorded live with a very stretched out feel – tracks that take Jimmy ... LP, Vinyl record album
