Miracles

LP (Item 28645) Atlantic, 1981 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A brilliant second set from Change – working here without Luther Vandross on lead vocals, but hardly missing a beat at all! As before, the basslines are at the core of the set – a sweet stripped-down approach that brings even more focus onto the bottom of the groove for early 80s dancefloors – with loads of numbers that step along in a really groovy mode – one quite far from the cliches of disco, and inflected by loads of jazzy elements that keep things fresh over the years! Vocals are by James Robinson – previously with Lonnie Liston Smith – Diva Gray, and Jocelyn Shaw – and titles include "On Top", "Paradise", "Hold Tight", "Your Move", "Stop For Love", and "Heaven Of My Life".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Jealousy
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good
One of the best 70s mellow soul talents at Atlantic Records – sounding completely sublime here in a full set of Philly arrangements!

Soul Searching
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good
Sublime mid 70s work from The Average White Band – and a record that really has the group deepening their groove a bit – moving past the heavier funk of their roots, into some mellower grooves that are totally great! There's a great undercurrent of jazz in some of the playing here ... LP, Vinyl record album
Seeekret
Atlantic, 1985. Near Mint-
The triple "e" here is the key to the album's sound – as Kleeer are still very much at the top of their game, and opening up nicely with that string "wheeet" sound they get on their keyboards! The album's one of their key 80s partnerships with Deodato – who really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good
A sweet sweet set from The Spinners – and a record that's more "today" than "yesterday", given the tight 70s arrangements from Thom Bell! Bell's Philly approach is still perfect for the group – unlocking their harmonies in very different ways than back in their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eight Atlantic albums, and The Spinners are still going strong – sounding really wonderful here, thanks to Philly backings from the great Thom Bell! The album's not filled with hits, but that's a big part of its charm – as the group still sounds great, with smoother than smooth vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
Outlaw
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)
An incredible step forward for 60s soul singer Gene McDaniels – so much so, that most folks hearing this album can't believe he's the same guy who recorded for Liberty Records a few years before! The album's incredibly righteous right from the start – and has a genre-busting quality ... LP, Vinyl record album
New & Improved
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+
A great batch of sophisticated soul tracks, with sweet Philly arrangements by Thom Bell, and nice studio work by the usual suspects. Includes the massive track "Sadie", a longtime fave in Chicago, and recently redone by R. Kelly. Other titles include "Sitting On Top Of The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mixin It Up
Atlantic, 1980. Very Good
One of the most dancefloor-oriented efforts from the Trammps – and that's saying a lot, given the sound of their other records! This set brings the beats up a bit more than before – almost a boogie groove, or an 80s-styled sound at points – but still with strong roots in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roberta Flack
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
By the time Roberta released this self titled LP in '78, she'd already established herself as one of the most important voices in soul during the 70s, alongside Donny Hathaway, with whom she cut many classics. While this album is missing some of the wonderful dynamic they shared, it's still a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet Inspirations
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good-
The wonderful debut album by the Sweet Inspirations for Atlantic – with the same sweet sound that they had backing Aretha Franklin on her classic recordings! The group was a huge backing boon for everyone from Aretha to Elvis, but their own albums were really great, too – an amazing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Greatest Ray Charles
Atlantic, 1950s. Very Good
The title says it all – as the set features 9 of Ray's greatest cuts for Atlantic, a mixture of early soul and harder R&B numbers, wrapped up in a very classic cover! Titles include "Heartbreaker", "Tell Me How Do You Feel", "What'd I Say", "Talkin Bout ... LP, Vinyl record album
