Rush Hour

LP (Item 33299) Philadelphia International, 1979 — Condition: Very Good

A very obscure album on Philly International – and a rare Gamble-Huff blues session, cut by the legendary Bobby Rush. Chicago blues singer Bobby had been knocking around indie labels for the better part of the 70s, then strangely got the chance to work for Philly at the end of the decade – and the result is a compelling batch of tracks that mix blues and modern soul production, in a style that would soon become Bobby's big calling card in the underground of modern blues in which he still works heavily. Tracks include "No Axe Ta Grind", "I Can't Find My Keys", "Let's Do It Together", "Evil Is", "Intermission", and "Hey Western Union Man".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Jimmy Witherspoon

Handbags & Gladrags
ABC, 1970. Very Good
An interesting 70s session from Jimmy – rougher and rootsier than most of his jazz-inflected 60s recordings, in a style that was clearly trying to cross him over to the college kids who were buying so much blues at the time! The set's still got a lot of jazz players on it – including ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wonderful early work from Eddie Cleanhead Vinson and Jimmy Witherspoon – both singers who had a strong connection to jazz over the years, but who work here in a nicely raw mode that befits the album's King Records placement! Vinson's a genius – a really overlooked singer who can ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kapp, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Great work by one of the most sublime soul groups of the 60s! Ruby and the gang had a perfect harmony sound, which they sung to great fame on a few big chart hits – as well as some other more obscure material. Includes their massive hit "Our Day Will Come", plus other great tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
