Sybil

LP (Item 32254) Next Plateau, 1989 — Condition: Very Good

A landmark soul album – and one of the first to break that acoustic-based Soul II Soul sound back into the American market. In a late 80s market of weak tinny soul albums, this one stood out as a deep rich wonderful gem, with a solid classic sound that's still pretty darn nice in any decade! Includes Sybil's great covers of "Walk On By" and "Don't Make Me Over", plus "In My Dreams", "Crazy For You", "Love's Calling", "I Wanna Be Where You Are", and Ced-Gee's "Bad Beats Suite", mixed out of the original Leon Ware version of "I Wanna Be Where You Are"!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has edge wear and bent corners.)

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.

RCA, 1971. Very Good
A great album filled with hard breaks, tight choppy guitars, and a deep funky sound. This is one of the best early albums by the Nite Liters, and it's filled with great grooves like "Funky-Doo", "Stinkin Charlie", and "K-Jee" – but just about every track is a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lucifer

Lucifer
Invictus, 1971. Very Good
Wonderfully weird sounds from Lucifer – a record cut during the powerhouse 70s soul years of the Invictus/Hot Wax label, but done with a sound that's much more bluesy and rootsy than any other work for the company! Vocals are by Eugene Smith, who has a cool sort of Bay Area vibe – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1972. Very Good+
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good+
Although Jerry Butler had the first hit with "Only The Strong Survive" – way back in the late 60s, when Gamble & Huff were using his career to first forge their new ideas of Philly soul, Billy Paul does a great job with the cut here, taking it into a smooth modern mode that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Hot On The Tracks
Motown, 1976. Very Good+
Early funk from the Commodores – back in the days when Lionel Richie could still get up and groove! We'll be the first to admit that we're sometimes put off by the group, given their later hits, but it's records like this that actually remind us how great they could be – a mixture of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rance Allen Group

Brothers
Truth/Stax, 1973. Very Good
A lesser-known gem from Rance Allen and group – recorded during their incredible early run at Stax! The sound here seems even more powerful than on the group's first album – a wicked blend of gospel and soul, served up with relatively spare instrumentation that features keyboards and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

You Send Me
Polydor, 1978. Very Good
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1978. Very Good
One of Jean's classic Philly albums, recorded after she left Doug Carn, and started to make records as a solo artist. The record's got stellar production by Gamble & Huff and Dexter Wansel, and features a nice mix of up-tempo cuts and mellow ones. With the monster "Don't Let it Go to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michele

Magic Love
West End, 1977. Very Good+
A classic set of disco grooves – initially recorded in Paris, then sweetened up strongly at the Sigma Studios in Philly! The core sounds are in the warmer side of the Euro disco spectrum – but it's clear that the Philly touches are what really make things cook – thanks to a new ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phyllis Hyman

Phyllis Hyman
Buddah, 1977. Very Good
Far and away our favorite album by Phyllis Hyman – her first, and with lots of the same smooth jazzy soul touches you'd find in her work with Norman Connors! Phyllis is still as sophisticated as she is on later albums, but there's a bit freer style to the record – and Phyllis breaks a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

Greatest Of Dizzy Gillespie
RCA, Late 40s/1961. Near Mint-
Great RCA comp of Dizzy's earlier bop sides for the label, many of which came out first only as singles. Tracks include all the classics like "Cubana Be", "Cubana Bop", "Manteca", "Night in Tunisia", and a whole bunch more that you've heard him reprise a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Goin' Down Slow
Prestige, 1972. Sealed
Sonny Stitt's going down slow here – hitting a groove that's a bit more laidback than some of his funkier albums for Prestige, but one that's still pretty darn great overall! The sound is almost in a Stanley Turrentine mode at CTI – with fuller arrangements behind his saxophone solos, ... LP, Vinyl record album
