Something To Love

LP (Item 34074) A&M, 1977 — Condition: Sealed
A great little groover from LTD – and a set that's got everything coming together perfectly in the mix! The set features arrangements from Philly Soul maestro Bobby Martin – who brings together this wonderful blend of styles – funk, smoother soul elements, and the kind of upbeat, clubby grooves that really worked well for the group – but at a level that also really set them apart from most of the disco generation. Jeffrey Osborne's vocals really shine on this one, too – and the record includes the cuts "Back In Love Again", "Stay With Me", "We Party Hearty", "Material Things", and "Age Of The Showdown".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Still sealed, with a cutout notch.)

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.

LTD

For You
Montage, 1983. Sealed
An 80s groover from LTD – one that has the group working strongly on both groovers and ballads, the latter of which may well be the strongest suit here! Jeffery Osborne's long gone from the group, but his warmly soulful legacy lives on in the vocal style of the love songs – kind of a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lani Hall

Sun Down Lady
A&M, 1972. Very Good-
The beautiful first solo album by Lani Hall – recorded after years of work with Sergio Mendes in the Brasil 66 group – and done in a style that certainly reflects her great vocals with that ensemble, yet which also expands her sound tremendously! The set was arranged and produced by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mobile Fidelity/A&M, 1979. Near Mint-
A whole new level of genius for Herb Alpert – a record that's light years away from his earlier work with the Tijuana Brass, and which has the trumpeter stepping strongly into the world of smooth jazzy fusion! The title track here went platinum the minute it was released – and became ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richie Havens

Quincy Jones

Dude
A&M, 1981. Very Good+
A super-huge album from Quincy Jones – a record that's almost like Quincy's trying to show the whole younger generation that an older master like himself can still deliver the goods! The set was delivered right after Quincy helped out Michael Jackson on Off The Wall – and while it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brothers Johnson

Look Out For #1
A&M, 1976. Near Mint-
An all-star soul affair produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring the talents of studio greats like Harvey Mason, Billy Cobham, Toots Thielmans, Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour, and many others – not to mention the Brothers themselves! We'll be honest, though, in saying that we really think it's the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ike & Tina Turner

River Deep – Mountain High
A&M, 1966. Very Good+
A legendary pairing of two key 60s pop talents – the soulful sounds of Ike & Tina Turner, and the soaring production styles of Phil Spector! The album's quite different than some of the grittier Turner projects of the time – lots of full orchestrations and strings, mixed with the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert

Beyond
A&M, 1980. Sealed
An incredible later record from Herb Alpert – working in a soulful funky fusion mode that really is well beyond the style that made him famous in the 60s! We love the easy breezy 60s sound of Herb & The Tijuana Brass too, but he really stepped up his game in exciting ways on records like ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gino Vannelli

Brother To Brother
A&M, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
A really standout bit of blue-eyed soul from Gino Vannelli – the kind of record that shouldn't be so great, but really holds up well over the years! The style is tight and studio-oriented – somewhere in the mode of Bobby Caldwell and some of Gino's other cross-over contemporaries ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love Deluxe

Here Comes That Sound
Warner, 1979. Near Mint-
Nice disco stuff from Alan Hawkshaw! Hawkshaw arranged and produced the whole record – and it's got lots of sexy keyboard and production work. Most cuts have vocals, but the real strength is Hawkshaw's instrumental work – honed to perfection after years of working with Serge ... LP, Vinyl record album

Skyy

Skyy
Salsoul, 1979. Near Mint-
Sure, at the time the group's silly costumes and slap-bass funk sound were a bit too much to take – but from the perspective of a few decades later, they actually had a pretty darn nice 80s groove kind of sound, and this first album's not a bad one for the dancefloor. Titles include "Thi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Time

Time
Warner, 1981. Near Mint-
One of the two 80s masterpieces by this amazing Minneapolis group, before Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis left to change the face of commercial R&B! This first album and it's follow-up remain as a couple of the more enduring moments of slick, stylish American pop soul, and represent just a huge ... LP, Vinyl record album
