Martha Velez — Matinee Weepers ... CD 3.99

Possibly the best album ever from vocalist Martha Velez – a female singer from the 70s, and one with an approach that was equal parts rock and soul! There's a nice punch to most of these tracks – a feel that's balanced well between familiar modes, and often supported with some great rhythms too – strong keyboards and drum parts that give the tunes a bit more kick than you might expect, and which almost push the record into the territory of Aussie soul singer Renee Geyer. The cut "Jive Elephant" begins with a great break on the intro – and other tracks include "Superficial Lover", "Last Battle On Earth", "Aggravation", "Revelation", and a version of "Mocking Bird". (Cover has some wear, a light crease, and sticker spot.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

United Artists, 1976. Very Good+
Soaring grooves and mellow moments – a perfect blend of 70s soul styles, summed up here beautifully by Enchantment!

Arista, 1977. Very Good
The second album by this legendary 70s funk combo – best known as Herbie Hancock's backing band, but sounding great here on their own. The album's much more of a solid soul effort than the first one – which was great, but felt more like Herbie had stepped out of the studio for a minute ... LP, Vinyl record album

People, 1973. Good
An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ...
