Understanding

LP (Item 33175) United Artists, 1972 — Condition: Very Good-

Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! Bobby strikes a perfect balance here – keeping things hip, but also tightening things up too – yet never by getting too smooth or too commercial. The result is a great batch of tracks that includes classics like "I Can Understand It", "Woman's Gotta Have it", and "Harry Hippy" – as well as a nice version of "Sweet Caroline", and Jimmy Lewis' great "Got To Get You Back".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Bobby Womack

Poet II
Beverly Glen, 1984. Very Good+
One of Bobby's biggest albums of the 80s – and a smooth soulful set that features some nice guest work from the likes of George Benson, Patti Labelle, and Wilton Felder. We're a bit more partial to Bobby's earlier work, but his voice is always a treasure, with a raspy soulful edge that never ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

My Prescription
Minit, Late 60s. Very Good+
Completely wonderful work from Bobby Womack – one of those records that shows why Bobby's so different from other singers, right from the start! Womack's guitar lines are beautiful – and echo a lot of country styles alongside his raspy vocals – but hardly at a level that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Call it what you want, but to us, this is not so much an "oldies" set, as it is a great compilation of soul tunes that were issued on United Artists and some of its subsidiaries. 10 numbers in all, including the excellent Latin groover "Do You Dig It" by Ray Barretto, plus ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Like the first volume, this isn't so much a collection of "oldies" so much as it is a tasty set of hard to find numbers from the United Artists label – including some killer soul and jazz numbers that are pretty darn hard to track down on LP. The record features two great ones from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Solid
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
A tasty set from Mandrill – one of their first records away from the Polydor label, but every bit as great as later efforts for that company, especially Mandrilland. The overall sound is a bit smoother than some of their full-out funky albums – but in a way that really helps blend ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lady Lea
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
A mixture of smooth LA soul with some deeper tendencies – Lea's second album for United Artists, and very much in the spirit of the first. Titles include "She Will Break Your Heart", "Lost In Your Love", "Chained To This Memory", "You're Gonna Need A ... LP, Vinyl record album

ZZ
United Artists, 1974. Near Mint-
Standout work from ZZ Hill – one of a few albums he cut for United Artists records in the early 70s, all of them great! The set's got a really tight tight feel – recorded at Fame Studios with a warm and lean style that pushes ZZ past the blusier roots of earlier sides, into a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Family Vibes

Strange Fruit
United Artists, 1972. Sealed Gatefold
Post-Tina, Ike Turner changed the name of his band to The Family Vibes, and put out a few nice records of mostly instrumental funk. Given that most of the band members were guys, he probably didn't push them around that much (and there were a lot of them, so they could probably gang up on him ... LP, Vinyl record album
