Spotlight On Hank Ballard

LP (Item 31069) King, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Killer work by one of King's best singers! This set features classic Hank Ballard singles from the 50s – compiled into one LP with an image of Hank on the front, stretching out under a spotlight. Titles include some hits – like "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go" – plus more obscure rockin material, including a great version of "Mona Lisa", done as a garage harmony number, and the tracks "When I Need You", "I Must Be Crazy", "Just One More Chance", and "The Hoochi Coochi Coo".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small piece of clear tape on the top seam and some marker on back.)

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.

Hank Ballard definitely falls into the "one and only" category – especially with work as great as his sounds on this classic album for King Records! Hank sings in a style that's as badass as his look on the cover – as raw in these cuts as James Brown was during the same ... LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1968. Very Good+
James' moving tribute to the late Little Willie John – a big influence, and a fellow label mate at King. There are some great deep soul tracks on here, and lots of groovy instrumentals.

Kay Robinson

We Need Time
King, Late 60s. Very Good-
Obscure bit of soulful gospel produced by James Brown for King. Kay Robinson's got a great voice, and the arrangements are similar to some of James' hard soul albums from the time. There's no breakbeat cuts here, but the music is quite strong, and given the strength of the arrangements, you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album

Breakin' Up The House
King/Charly (UK), Early 50s. Near Mint-
Nice stuff from one of our favorite R&B bandleaders of the 50s! These excellent tracks pop along with a tight rolling groove and a lively sense of rhythm that was often unmatched by some of the other sleepier groups of the time – and Bradshaw did a good job of recruiting some of the ...

King, 1970. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
James Brown cooking it live – recorded (as the cover says) "at home in Augusta, Georgia with his bad self"! The groove here is a nice extension of earlier Apollo modes – one that shows the increasing funkiness of the James Brown Band, captured with a raw power that few other ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Bach
ABC, 1974. Near Mint-
One of Lamont Dozier's true 70s classics – an amazing album of baroque soul with an undeniable groove – kind of the best aspects of Detroit soul, wrapped up together! The arrangements here are fantastic – a mix of strings and soul that surpasses any of Lamont's previous albums, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leroy Hutson

Feel The Spirit
Curtom, 1976. Very Good+
Pure genius from the great Leroy Hutson – a set that's maybe got a funkier feel than some of his previous albums – and all of the completely charming vocals that we've always loved from Leroy over the years! There's plenty of messages in the grooves – and in a way, at this point ... LP, Vinyl record album
