I Appreciate

LP (Item 32873) MCA, 1984 — Condition: Sealed
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

A stone classic from Alicia Myers – one of her classic sets recorded during the MCA years of the mighty One Way empire! By this point in the 80s, Myers was just about the only part of Al Hudson's One Way collective that was still running strong – and this album of smooth modern soul tracks shows that she still had plenty of steam – stepping out strongly as a lead act on her own, with a vibe that was equally great on mellow tracks and upbeat groovers! The record was produced by Kevin McCord, who also wrote a number of nice tracks – and Al Hudson checks in on writing credits on a few numbers, too. Titles include the sweetly smooth "Don't Do Me This Way", which has a nice jazzy tip – plus "Say That", "You Get The Best From Me", "Just Can't Stay Away", and "Appreciation".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Saturday Night
MCA, 1983. Very Good+
A stone club classic from the early 80s – one of the best mainstream groovers of the post-disco years! Cheatham's a percussionist by trade, but really comes off with something extra here – a smoothly soulful groove that's sublime from start to finish – no filler, no cliches, just ...

Patti Labelle

Winner In You
MCA, 1986. Near Mint-
A bit one for Patti Labelle in the 80s – a set that crossed over big at the time, but which still has the lady in very soulful territory! Patti seems to sparkle most here on the mellower cuts – the gentle groovers and laidback ballads that helped open her up to a whole new audience, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Brown

King Of Stage
MCA, 1986. Very Good+
Bobby Brown's out to put his New Edition past firmly behind him here – stepping out in a range of pop soul numbers that still have a sound that's as fresh as his late teen look on the cover! The Brown cliches haven't settled into full effect here yet – and there's a boyish charm on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Randy Brown

Intimately
Parachute/Casablanca, 1979. Very Good
Excellent work from Randy Brown – a great singer with a massive talent for being both smooth and deep at the same time, something we'd reserve for a rare few, like Frankie Beverly or Teddy Pendergrass during their best periods. This album featuers Randy singing tracks written by Homer Banks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Rawls

Your Good Thing
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
Another one of the really good Lou Rawls albums from the late 60's. David Axelrod produced, and the drums are nice and hard, especially on "I Can't Make It Alone", which he arranged. Other tracks include "Give Me Your Love" (not the Curtis Mayfield song), "When She ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Watson

I Cried For You
Cadet, Early 60s/Late 60s. Very Good+
Fantastic Johnny "Guitar" Watson album, and one that features him playing no guitar at all! Instead, he plays piano, and with a nice bluesy style that sounds great. He sings mostly standards, but in a fantastic way that twists them inside out, and that gives them all these great soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

Talking Book
Tamla, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
One of the classics, and an album that's filled with a sense of majesty and power that will knock you dead – despite the kind of silly cover of Stevie sitting on a hill, playing in the dirt! By this point, Stevie knows he's on top of the world as well he should – and he's honing the ... LP, Vinyl record album
