Soul Of Minit Records 1966 to 1969 – Struttin & Flirtin

LP (Item 31417) Minit/EMI, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Released in the mid 80s, but an excellent compilation of rare soul from the legendary Minit label – featuring some stellar soul cuts that are pretty darn hard to find in any format! Titles include "Get Right" by The Players, "60 Minutes Of Your Love" by Homer Banks, "My Heart Is In Danger" by Alder Ray, "I've Got Love For My Baby" by The Young Hearts, "I Know" by Gloria Jones, and "Hunk Of Funk" by Gene Dozier.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a spot of sticker residue.)

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.

Soul Cowboy
Minit, 1970. Very Good+
Quite an interesting record! The band is listed as Memphis Soul Band – but the arrangements are by Ingfried Hoffman, the great German organ player who appeared on some excellent jazz albums in the 60s.

Kwick

Kwick
EMI, 1980. Very Good+
Sweet 80s groove from Kwick – a quartet who were once known as The Newcomers, and recorded some Memphis singles for Stax – but who here reemerge more than fully-formed – leaping into the new decade with an amazingly rich sound! Given the group's previous work, the vocals here are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Little Bitty Pretty One
Aladdin/EMI, Late 50s. Near Mint-

EMI (UK), 1966. Sealed
Excellent "a go-go" soul from Brit beat group phenom Zoot Money – recorded in a style that was very faithful to his roots in US soul and R&B, but with the usual UK touches. The record was recorded live at the Klook's Kleek nightclub in London – and it's got some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Imperial/EMI, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Raw New Orleans soul from Overton "Smiley" Lewis – one of the city's big stars in the 50s R&B years, and a singer who arguably set the stage for later deep soul to come! A few years before, and Lewis might have been more of a blues singer – but here, he's working with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhino, 1968. Sealed
Great reissue of James' second set of tracks recorded live at the famous Apollo Theatre! This is a weird little Rhino reissue from the 80s – featuring 9 tracks from the original 2LP set. Titles include the duet version of "Think", plus "Thanks", "Let Yourself ... LP, Vinyl record album

Free Yourself
Black Fire, 1977. Near Mint-
An early record by Experience Unlimited – better known to most of the world as EU, the DC funk outfit that went onto become pretty big in the GoGo scene, and who scored big with the 80s party cut "Da Butt". This one's nothing like that stuff – and instead catches the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1974. Very Good+
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album
