Shake A Hand

LP (Item 27652) Brunswick, 1963 — Condition: Very Good
Originally: 8.99
Jackie's teamed with a young Linda Hopkins here on this album of soul-oriented gospel tracks, recorded in that all-over-the map sort of way that describes his early years at Brunswick. The tracks feature arrangements by Alan Lorber and Dick Jacobs – and titles include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands", "Do Lord", "Dry Bones", "Down By The Riverside", and "Shake A Hand".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Vinyl has a click on the 2nd track on side 2. Cover has some staining around the edges, surface & edge wear, clear tape on top seam, promo sticker on the back, small split on spine.)

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.

Manufacturers Of Soul
Brunswick, 1968. Very Good+
A really wonderful collaboration between two very unlikely partners – and a great album that really stands out as some of the best work from both artists in the 60s!

You certainly ain't heard nothin, not until you hear this very strangely conceived set of Jackie doing a tribute to Al Jolson! We could condemn this, but we actually find it pretty fascinating, as it confirms the strange black following that Jolson had, even though you would've expected him to ... LP, Vinyl record album

The sensuous soul gem from Barbara Mason – a sweetly soulful groover all the way – and one of her strongest records! Give Me Your Love gets our love for a bunch of reasons, but especially for the title track – which is reworking of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Hudson & The Soul Partners

Spreading Love
ABC, 1978. Very Good+
Excellent early work from Al Hudson – a soulful talent who stood his own in the late 70s, forging an up-tempo funk sound that lived long past disco, and which was sort of a platform for groups of the 80s to build a new dancefloor sound. Hudson relied heavily on bass-y funk to hit his groove, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Strange record, but surprisingly nice. Ghanian percussionist Oscar Sulley performs here with members of the Illinois-based Air Force Band Of Mid America – and the 2 record set features one disc of hard spare percussion tracks, and one of jazzy highlife tracks. The highlife stuff is strange, ... LP, Vinyl record album
