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.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

One of the best solos singles by Johnny Bristol! "Love Takes Tears" is an excellent mellow soul number – built around a groove that's almost like "Love's Theme" by Barry White, but graced with warm vocals by Johnny that give the tune a very catchy hook! "Go On & ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

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

2 nice ones from the Hell Up In Harlem soundtrack! "Ain't It Hell Up In Harlem" is a killer vocal number – right on a par with the best of the blacksploitation themes, like "Are You Man Enough?" or "Across 110th Street" – sung superbly by Edwin, with tight ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
