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.
