If I Were Your Woman

LP (Item 29732) Motown, 1971 — Condition: Near Mint-

A new level of sophistication for Gladys Knight – and a record that opened the door to the mellower style that would break big for her in the 70s! The title cut is almost worth the price of the record alone – a slow-stepping, blue-tinged number that perfectly blends Knight's lead vocals and the warmer sounds of The Pips – but other tunes follow suit with an equally great sound – one that glows, grows, and flows beautifully as the album rolls on, and really sets the tone for a new sort of crossover vibe in the group. Titles include "If I Were Your Woman", plus "One Less Bell To Answer", "Here I Am Again", "Is There A Place (In His Heart For Me)", "Everybody Is A Star", "Your Love's Been Good To Me", "Signed Gladys", "One Step Away", and "I Don't Want To Do Wrong".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Canadian reissue pressing.)

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.

Jermaine Jackson

Feel The Fire
Motown, 1977. Near Mint-
Jermaine's going the way of most of Motown at this point – popping the bass pretty heavily, and grooving in a smooth funky mode. The cuts that go too over the top with the funky stuff definitely lose us – but there's a few decent mellow soul tracks that redeem the album, and which keep ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supremes

Love Child
Motown, 1968. Very Good+
The album's got a slightly grittier image than most of the other 60s records by The Supremes – perfect for the title track, and its slight message of social commentary! The trio weren't heading into the same sort of territory as The Temptations or some of the other Norman Whitfield projects ... LP, Vinyl record album
