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

Ann Peebles

Tellin' It
Hi Records, 1975. Near Mint-
It's the mid 70s, but Ann's still very much in classic form – with thanks to arrangements and production by Willie Mitchell and backing by Andrew Love, Wayne Jackson, and James Mitchell – and sultry, soulful vocals from Ann! There's a bit more of a groove-oriented production style here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet Thunder

Above The Clouds
WMOT/Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the first, and best, albums by this Philly groove combo that sort of represents the "second generation" of the east coast uptempo sound! The tracks are short and tight, and have a sweeping Sigma Sound quality to them – with arrangements and production by Ron Kersey. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Encounter, 1973. Near Mint-
Righteous soul – and the only record ever cut by East Coast – a group led by Larry Blackmon, featuring early vocals by Gwen Guthrie!

Marlena Shaw

Out Of Different Bags
Cadet, 1967. Near Mint-
Marlena Shaw's first-ever album – and while not as all-out righteous as some of her later work, still a really unique record that quickly put Marlena head and shoulders above the rest of the pack! The record's a mix of jazzy vocal numbers and heavier soul tunes – arranged by Richard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blackbyrds

Blackbyrds
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
A funky jazz treasure – and the band's landmark first album!

LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good
A classic 70s soul soundtrack – and a dream of a combination! Curtis Mayfield wrote the soundtrack and produced the album – and the result is a killer batch of 70s soul tracks that matches Aretha's strong vocals with the hip Curtom sound of Chicago! Aretha was still doing pretty well ... LP, Vinyl record album

Independents

First Time We Met
Wand, 1972. Sealed
Probably the biggest album by this Chicago soul group, and the one that yielded up their big hit "The First Time We Met". The set's got some excellent Chicago arrangements by Tom Tom, and a good bunch of tracks that includes all original material, like "Here I Am", "Just ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Love Lives Forever
Capitol, 1980. Very Good
The last album ever from the amazing Minnie Riperton – and one of her greatest records as well!

LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...

Blue Thumb, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Strange compilation focusing on a bunch of San Francisco rock and funk groups produced by Abe "Voco" Kesh.

Horace Silver

Blowin' The Blues Away
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good+
A killer session from Horace's famous quintet that included Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor, and Louis Hayes – one of the group's earliest recordings for Blue Note – and also one of their best!
