Chicken Heads

LP (Item 34392) Ovation, 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

Funky blues from Chicago – and a lot better than Joe's other album on Ovation! This one's got a lot more instrumental moments, which means that the funky blues band can groove a bit harder – and that Joe's guitar can slide in where you might have otherwise had some snoozy vocals. Louis Satterfield is on bass, and the great Floyd Morris is on piano and organ. Titles include "Serve My Time", "Move On Higher", "Flower Pot", "Chicken Heads", and "Something On Your Mind".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. Cover has a cutout hole, some wear, and a mostly removed promo sticker.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Mighty Joe Young

Mighty Joe Young
Ovation, 1976. Very Good
Modern electric blues from Chicago, featuring Mighty Joe on guitar and vocals, plus backing by a tight rocking band. There's some electric keyboards in the group, which gives it less of a rootsy sound than you'd expect – but the album's still pretty spare. Titles include "Takes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Perfect Angel
Epic, 1974. Very Good+
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest female soul stars! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1972. Very Good-
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Natalie Cole

Unpredictable
Capitol, 1977. Very Good
An album that reunites Natalie Cole with the smooth soul team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancey – the team who did such a great job with Natalie's Capitol debut, and who really continue the groove here too! The album's got a rock-solid approach through and through – a quality that has ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Dorsey

Night People
ABC, 1978. Sealed
A smoother set than usual for Lee Dorsey – recorded with frequent partner Allen Toussaint, but done in a sweeter, more modern soul style that's a refreshing change from earlier years! (C'mon, you didn't expect Lee to keep hitting the same old chunky grooves – did you?) The shift here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bootsy's Rubber Band

Ahh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby!
Warner, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1971. Very Good+
Al Green's first major album, and a killer batch of Memphis soul tracks with a sound that's a bit rawer than later years. The formula for the hits is firmly in place – and Al's beautiful voice is swept up wonderfully in very sympathetic production by the great Willie Mitchell. Although ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sculpture, Mid 60s. Sealed
Early stuff by Sly – and pretty nice! The mix of styles is mostly hard soul, a bit jazz, and tiny roots of Sly's later funky style – and the record has a lot of cuts that may not be as great as Sly's Epic recordings, but which would sound pretty darn nice if they were on an obscure 45! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good-
A key moment for the Philly soul scene of the 70s – and the first album to feature the MFSB backing group as a solo act on their own! The ensemble were responsible for key sounds on countless soul singles of the time – yet also find a way to soar beautifully on their own – in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & Fire

Spirit
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
A big hit for the group – and a great album of smooth funky soul! Spirit is a perfect example of the way that Earth Wind & Fire could tighten things up, yet still keep them real – holding onto the deeply spiritual side that first made them great – but also focusing their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Simon

Sounds Of Simon
Spring, Early 70s. Sealed
Classic Joe Simon – smooth, soulful, and with slight bits of down-home country in the mix. John Richbourg produced the album, which was recorded at Music City in Nashville – a key example of the strength of that city's contribution to the ever-expanding sound of southern soul in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1961. Very Good
Legendary early live work from Miles Davis – one of the first examples on record of the way that Davis could really stretch out in a concert setting! The music's a bit more straight ahead than later live dates, but still pretty open and exploratory – and in addition to Davis' sparkling ... LP, Vinyl record album
