Pick Of The Litter

LP (Item 31395) Atlantic, 1975 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold
$1.99 ...

LP

(€1.76 || £1.52 || ¥201) (approx.)

Classic Philly Spinners – with Philippe Wynne on lead vocals, and Thom Bell arranging and producing with that hit sound he gave the group during the 70s! The record may not of given the band as many hits as some of the others, but it's got an excellent Philly sound – with backing by MFSB, and work by Bobby Eli on guitar. Tracks include "Honest I Do", "Just As Long As We Have Love", "Sweet Love Of Mine", "Love Or Leave", and "I Don't Want To Lose You". (In the gatefold cover with fully intact die-cuts. Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2016, 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.

Spinners Live
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A fascinating little record by The Spinners – and a real contrast to some of their other Atlantic albums!

You can't get anymore classic 70s soul than this!

Miracles
Atlantic, 1981. Very Good+
A brilliant second set from Change – working here without Luther Vandross on lead vocals, but hardly missing a beat at all! As before, the basslines are at the core of the set – a sweet stripped-down approach that brings even more focus onto the bottom of the groove for early 80s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Young, Gifted & Black
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
A beautiful album that perfectly mixes both sides of Aretha – the earlier hard-hitting soulster, and the developing vocalist with a rich talent for more sophisticated material.

Quiet Fire
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good
Great small combo work by Roberta Flack, recorded early in her career, when she was still one of the hippest things around – and it's among her best records!

Wicked Pickett
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good
A breakout record that forever put Wilson Pickett at the top of the heap for mainstream 60s soul – thanks to the oft-covered, endlessly played "Mustang Sally" single that leads off the set!

What's An Uggams?
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good
Star of stage and screen Leslie Uggams lends her vocal talents to this late 60s easy effort – with arrangements by Jack Cortner, Peter Matz, and Pat Williams. Williams, of course, manages to keep things groovy – and even though Leslie's not much of a singer in our bag, she's still ok ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, Late 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A sockin soul collection that features most of the best work that Wilson recorded for Atlantic Records in the 60s – much of it classic southern material, recorded in Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and a few other choice locations.

Live & Lively
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
A tasty live set, with a smoking raw groove that you don't always get on Joe's studio albums! The crowd really goes wild for Joe – and with only some small group backing behind him, he's got nothing left to do but go over the top with his vocals! As proof of that, the record includes the ...

Best Of Booker T & The MGs
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
What can we say? Booker T and crew are always tops in our book – and this album's as strong a batch of their classic singles as you'll ever find! Book's organ is the sound of a generation, and Steve Cropper's sinister vamping on guitar gives even the poppier tracks a hard edge that still ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of Aretha's undisputed classics – a seminal session that furthered her deep soul agenda with key backings from Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd!
