Starpoint

LP (Item 34881) Casablanca/Chocolate City, 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Starpoint — Starpoint ... CD 11.99

What was the deal with slap-bass funk and spaceship themes right as the 80s approached? We're not going to even begin to answer that question, but Starpoint were one of the bigger examples of that subgenre, and this is their first album on Casablanca – a funky bit of soul with a mixture of male and female vocals, often sung together in ensemble style. Titles include "Gonna Lift You Up", "I Just Wanna Dance With You", "Get Ready, Get Down", "Girl I'm Up For Your Lovin", "Let Me Love You", and "Never Find A Better Love".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo. Cover has a promo stamp, some surface wear, and a thin peeled strip along the top seam in front.)

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.

Stephanie Mills

Merciless
Casablanca, 1983. Sealed
An early 80s cooker from Stephanie Mills – not exactly "without mercy", as you might guess from the title – but instead a great slow burner that really does a great job of opening up her voice! Mills moves here in a perfect space between the late disco years and commercial ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donna Summer

Live & More
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
An overstuffed double-length set from Donna Summer – one that features some of the live material promised in the title, plus some even better studio work as well! The first 3 sides of the album feature Donna recorded live – putting over tunes with a bit more personality and almost a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gil Scott-Heron

Reflections
Arista, 1981. Very Good+
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Jackson

Good To See You
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Sealed
Sophisticated soul from the great Walter Jackson – one of the best voices ever to come out of the Chicago soul scene, and a wonderful interpreter of just about any material! The record's got some wonderful arrangements by Riley Hampton – who worked with Jackson on his earlier sessions ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ted Taylor

Ted Taylor 1976
TK/Alarm, 1976. Sealed
An overlooked set from Ted Taylor – one of those singers who kept moving around to different labels, never quite finding his home – but always doing some great work in the process! Ted's quite different here than on his 60s work for Okeh – much more in the southern soul territory ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rose Royce/Norman Whitfield

Car Wash – Original Soundtrack
MCA, 1976. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
A solid bit of heavy funk – and one of the last strong-selling soundtracks of the blacksploitation era! Sure, you know the hit "Car Wash", but there's plenty of other great numbers that rank the 2LP set right up there with the best of its genre. There's a lot of nice instrumentals ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1979. Sealed
The O'Jays keep on going strong – hitting a smooth mellow Philly vibe that takes them away from the style of their mid 70s hits! The sound here is a bit more uptempo than on the previous album So Full Off Love – but the group are still also really using the time to explore their ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1975. Sealed
A great mid period sleeper from Barry White – and an album that's not as hit-heavy as his other work from the time, but still equally nice! The album's got a mellower groove than some of Barry's albums of the time – a laidback approach that's going more for an overall sound, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impressions & Jerry Butler

Vintage Years
Sire, Mid 60s/1976. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
Nifty 2LP set that brings together a motherlode of the Impressions' best material from their ABC years – plus some of Jerry Butler's nice solo material for Mercury from the same time, and a few Curtis cuts from the early 70s. Too much to mention here, but titles include "Keep On ... LP, Vinyl record album
