Live At The Sahara Tahoe

LP (Item 27444) Enterprise, 1973 — Condition: Very Good
2LP Gatefold

A stunning live example of Ike's amazing baroque soul for Stax! Despite the schmaltz that you might expect from a live set recorded at Lake Tahoe, the album's a beautiful batch of long tracks with a very similar feel to Ike's other Stax work at the time – and it really gives you an excellent chance to hear how he could create these tiny little masterpieces even in a live setting, without any sort of studio trickery. Titles include "Do Your Thing", "Theme From The Men", "Look Of Love", "Theme From Shaft", "Ike's Rap V", "Windows Of The World", "Ain't No Sunshine", and "Type Thang". 2 LPs – in a cool die-cut cover!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In the original die-cut cover, including the heavy inner sleeves. Cover has light wear, with a bit of creasing on the die-cut doors.)

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.

Isaac Hayes

Funky Junky
Pointblank, 1995. Near Mint-
Promo only vinyl sampler of tracks from this Ike Hayes' 90s "comeback" album! The tracks are all nice and funky, done in the manner of the grooves on his best 70s work – and although we'll admit that we stuck up our noses at the album when it came out, it actually sounds pretty ...

Enterprise, 1974. Near Mint-
Extremely compelling stuff – and you've really got to give Billy credit for reinventing himself like this! The album features Billy's deep deep voice amidst arrangements by Artie Butler, Jimmy Jones, Mike Melvoin, and Billy Byers – sort of a blend of Grady Tate sophisti-jazz, and Scott ...

Tabu, 1978. Very Good
A tremendous little album from Brainstorm – funky and clubby at the same time – yet delivered with this righteous energy that few of their contemporaries could ever hope to match! There's a perfect melding of modes going on here that may well rival Earth Wind & Fire at their best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sami Kamara & His Black Diamonds

Songs & Rhythms From Sierra Leone
Afro Request, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A very rootsy album of stripped down tracks by Sami Kamara and his Black Diamonds group. Sami plays guitar, sings, and handles the occasional kazoo solo – and the rest of the group play percussion and vocalize behind him. The sound's kind of like a rootsy version of highlife – with ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown

Pure Dynamite!
King, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
Raw live energy from the great James Brown – and a record that comes hot on the heels of Live At The Apollo! Like that one, this set was supposedly "recorded on the spot" – and it's even harder, faster, and noisier than that classic – with a loud-bursting sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funkadelic

Cosmic Slop
Westbound, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good
Nice compilation of tracks that features some fine (and famous) moments from one of our favorite Chicago soul singers, recorded for the Vee Jay label, when they were one of the leading lights on music row. Most of these songs are pretty had to get a hold of on vinyl any more, and though the ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Clinton

Best Of George Clinton
Capitol, Early 80s. Very Good+
A selection of tracks pulled from Clinton's early 80s records for Capitol – post Parliament/Funkadelic offerings that were actually surprisingly successful at the time, and which have a Zapp-like approach to funk that's kept them bubbling with the old school crowd. Titles include "Atomic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Groove Holmes

American Pie
Groove Merchant, Early 70s. Very Good+
Tasty small group work from Groove – with Mr Holmes himself on organ, and the great Larry Willis on electric piano – coming up with a twin electric organ/piano sound that's similar to the one that Groove used on his Comin On Home LP for Blue Note. The difference here is that things ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Ole
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good-
A magnificent record from John Coltrane – one of his earliest expressions of unbridled spirituality, and a session that we've treasured for years! As you might guess from the title, there's a slight Latin focus to the record – but not one that has congas and bongos creating choppy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cecil Taylor

Looking Ahead!
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+
Cecil Taylor's definitely Looking Ahead here – pushing jazz piano very strongly into the 60s with his modernist tones – yet still working with a bit more restraint than in the next decade! The style here is quite unusual – and almost more fresh than the Taylor sound of later ... LP, Vinyl record album
