Just Too Good To Be True/Having A Party Medley

7-inch (Item 30234) MGM, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

Amazing vocal soul from one of the greatest groups of the south! This record captures the Ovations in their Sam Cooke-sounding phase – when they were producing excellent sweet soul with a righteous airy sound, almost like the maestro himself. The style manifests itself a bit too obviously on the b-side, a tribute to Sam – but it goes nice and deep on "Just Too Good To Be True", an excellent ballad with sparkling production!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In an MGM sleeve, with some light wear and bit of pen.)

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.

Killer stuff from Johnny Bristol! "You and I" is one of his best early tracks – and it begins with this tight hard drum sound that's right out of Barry White's best funky tracks, and which works perfectly for Johnny's sweet soul vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
MGM, 1973. Near Mint-
An excellent bit of funky soul! Thomas East has a super-dope style that reminds us a lot of the Detroit funk of Westbound – with a slow rolling rhythm track, hard clavinet solos, and a fuzzy funky soulful sound that can't be beat! A nice chugger – with a part 2 that's just as good as ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
