Taste Of The Younghearts

LP (Item 3057) 20th Century, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

Standout work from The Younghearts – one of the best harmony soul groups of the 70s to record away from the east coast. The group's vocals are the strongest thing about the record – but they get a great extra push from Vernon Bullock, who produced and conducted the record with a nice smooth finish. HB Barnum arranged the strings and horns, and he gives the record a bit of a lilt, which moves the tracks along at a good clip, avoiding cliches that can sometimes plague albums of this sort. Includes "We've Got Love", "What Does It Take to Win Your Love", "For The Rest of My Life", and "You're Not Here With Me" – plus the nice instrumental, "A Taste Of".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Ritchie Family

Brazil
20th Century, 1975. Very Good
A standout set of tropical disco tunes – one that takes its groove in 2 different ways! The whole thing was put together by producer Jacques Morali – and part of the album's got a style that nicely updates older Latin themes with a funky 70s disco groove – one that uses larger ...

Love Unlimited Orchestra

Super Movie Themes
20th Century, 1979. Very Good+
An album of theirs that you don't see that often – with Barry White's takes on popular movie hits. Some of this veers a little to close to the cheesy side of things, but it's worth it for the "Theme From King Kong" alone, an uptempo funk number that has a great almost afro-funk ...

Imaginations

Imaginations
20th Century, Mid 70s. Very Good+
An excellent group soul from Chicago – and no wonder, since The Imaginations were previously Brighter Side Of Darknes, a sublime falsetto harmony group who had a huge hit in 1972 with "Love Jones". This record's very much in the vein of that song – but also features a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sound Experience

Boogie Woogie
Buddah, 1975. Near Mint-
A 70s ensemble funk classic from Sound Experience – one of the tightest large groups of the time! The group have a really full sound that's part Kool & The Gang and part horn-heavy BT Express – one that uses some really great work on sax, trumpet, and trombone – laid out over ...

Ebony Rhythm Funk Campaign

Watchin' You, Watchin' Me
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1976. Sealed
A perfect example of the old adage that the funkier the band's name is, the less funky their music will be! Not that the group's really that bad or anything – they're just not the all-out party jam you'd expect from an ensemble with "ebony" and "funk" in their name. The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brunswick, Mid 60s. Very Good
An obscure session for Big Maybelle, but a great one too – a record that has her moving past the melancholy blues of her earlier work, into a lively gospel-based mode that's surprisingly great for her voice! The sound is quite upbeat and joyous – in a style that really has Maybelle's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Graham Central Station

Mirror
Warner, 1976. Near Mint-
Larry Graham and crew are definitely going for a fuller sound on this set – starting off the record with a funky marching band, in Tusk-like fashion – then rolling into some bass-heavy funk that tops even their previous records for tightness! The groove is a key element in the growth ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1987. Sealed
It's the late 80s, and Barry White has left behind his string-laden arrangements of the 70s – but the Man himself is still totally great, and finds a way to bring a strong sense of depth to the world of beats, basslines, and keyboards! Instrumentally, the set's pure 80s all the way through ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilbert Harrison

Lovin Operator
Fire/Charly (UK), Early 60s. Near Mint-
Hard-wailing soul from Wilbert Harrison – 16 tracks in all, most cut for the Fire/Fury Records label! LP, Vinyl record album
King/Orfeon (Mexico), 1967. Very Good+
Not as well-known as James Brown's live albums from the Apollo, but a really cooking set from the 60s that keeps up a plenty hard groove all the way through! As with most of James' live dates, the tracks here move at a clip that's often even faster than the studio work – played to perfection ... LP, Vinyl record album
Double Shot/Gamma (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good
A classic by Brenton Wood – one that crossed over big, and which was a real bright spot on the indie soul scene of the late 60s! Brenton's sound is kind of a swinging LA one – a bit pop in parts, but all-soul on the vocals, which are a bit sweet, but with a raspy edge that's always ... LP, Vinyl record album
