I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing

LP (Item 27857) Buddah, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+

Classic pop gospel from Edwin Hawkins and his very successful group! The title cut's a pretty decent version of a song that we heard way too much back in the 70s – and the album's got a number of pop tracks and covers, and titles include "Ooh Child", "Give Me A Star", "Shine", "Wake Up To What's Happening", and "When We Love".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Grove Of Eucalyptus". Cover has light wear and a Canadian distro sticker in back.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

I Want To Know What Love Is
Prelude, 1985. Very Good+
Strange to see a gospel album on the mostly-disco Prelude label – but the album's a good one, with a strong modern soul approach, similar to crossover work from the time by The Clark Sisters. The closest to the usual Prelude groove is the cut "Shine A Light", which has a righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bustin' Loose
Source, 1979. Near Mint-
Chuck Brown and his Soul Searchers group are past the arch jazzy funk of their days on Sussex Records – and they're heading more towards that ensemble sound that would drive the DC Go Go scene in the early 80s. The formula is heard to best effect on the big hit "Bustin Loose", an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Not really the "blues" promised in the title – but a great little collection of New Orleans soul, featuring loads of great tracks from the earliest years of the genre! The sound here is often somewhat stripped-down and rootsy – not that "fake" New Orleans sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album

An obscure bit of jazzy funk – recorded in Belgium by Roland Kluger, who you might know from other groovy work of the time – with work from Doug Lucas and The Sugar Sisters too! There's lots of tight grooves with good guitars, nice drums, and not too many vocals – a bit disco, ... LP, Vinyl record album
