LP, Vinyl record album

❔

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".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear, a promo stamp, and a trace of a price sticker.)

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.

Ahh, the dancefloor soul perfection of the beautiful Donna Summer – and classic late 70s production by Giorgio Morodor and Pete Bellotte – songs that are played often, even to this day, but will never be played out!

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!

Casablanca, 1976. Very Good
An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics! The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Tops

Tonight
Casablanca, 1981. Very Good+
A surprisingly great set from The Four Tops – hardly the throwaway effort you might expect from some of the other Casablanca projects of the time – and instead a really solid effort that follows strongly from the sound of the group's best moments during their ABC Records years!

Have You Heard
Casablanca, 1980. Near Mint-
A polished bit of LA soul, with lots of jazz players (Fred Jackson, Dorothy Ashby, Bobby Bryant) in the arrangements, and a number of smooth uptempo tracks that don't really make it as well as they might in the hands of another artist. Tracks include "Time", "I Choose You", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Village People

Go West
Casablanca, 1979. Very Good+
The only "west" these guys have gone is the West Village – the home of their aesthetic, and a post-Stonewall playground that was getting very firmly noticed by the mainstream by this point! The album's their last big one for Casablanca – and features arrangements from Horace ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, 1966. Near Mint-
This was the follow-up LP to Billy Stewart's huge single of Gershwin's "Summertime", and it's got a similar approach of "funky soul takes on American pop music standards". "Summertime" isn't on the album, but all the tracks have a sound that falls in the same mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philadelphia International, 1982. Near Mint-
A beautiful LP of modern soul by this classic group!
