Supremes – Produced & Arranged by Jimmy Webb

LP (Item 28513) Motown, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

An overlooked moment of 70s genius from The Supremes – and from the great Jimmy Webb as well – given that the pop studio genius wrote, arranged, and produced the entire album! Jimmy had plenty of famous work under his belt by this point in time – including his famous collaborations with 5th Dimension – but the sound here is something completely different entirely, and very different than Webb's own records, as he was starting to find a voice of his own. Instead, the man is more than happy to let the vocals of the Supremes flow forth in this really heavenly way – with Jean Terrell now in the group instead of Diana, but never missing a beat in the lead – as she soars out in this sophisticated mix of strings and soul that's completely sublime! The songs are very fresh territory for the group, and the use of mostly Webb material on the record makes for a very unified set – almost the Supremes' answer to Minnie Riperton's fantastic first album with Charles Stepney, Come To My Garden. Titles include "Once In The Morning", "Cheap Lovin", "When Can Brown Begin", "Beyond Myself", "I Guess I'll Miss The Man", "All I Want", "I Keep It Hid", and "5:30 Plane".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

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.

Smooth mellow grooves, in the style that Eddie pioneered, and which he still did better than most.

Diana
Motown, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold
A record so big they dropped the "Ross" from Diana's name – just to show how large the lady was living at the end of the 70s!

Diana Ross & The Supremes

Funny Girl
Motown, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great little album from Diana Ross – maybe one of her lesser-known efforts with The Supremes, and a set that really points the way towards the solo years to come! One of the reasons for that is that the set really just features Diana out in the lead, with different backing singers behind ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
A great early album by the Jacksons – with a monster batch of cuts arranged by Gene Page and The Corporation, all put together with a soulful groove that the group definitely lost on later albums!

Michael's on lead vocals here – in a set of tracks that's all from the early 70s, when he was starting to break away from The Jackson Five, but was still mostly recording with them. 10 tracks in all: "Ben", "Got To Be There", "One Day In Your Life", "I ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1975. Near Mint-
A compilation of Motown tunes with a strong focus on the dancefloor – still mostly soul cuts, but also with a groove that's bound to move a few feet.

Warner, 1977. Very Good
The Meters take their Crescent City groove in a slightly different direction – giving things a warmer, sunnier feel than their previous records – and bringing in a fair bit more vocals, too – yet still keeping all the right funky elements at the bottom! The move is a bit like ... LP, Vinyl record album
