Alley & The Soul Sneekers

LP (Item 35178) Capitol, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

A slick LA soul group – with vocals by Carl Hall and Alan ("Alley"?) Gordon. The album was produced and arranged by Jack Nitzsche, and it's got a nicely complicated approach that almost pushes it in a Steely Dan direction at times. Given the slickness, the vocals are surprisingly strong from a soul perspective – which really makes some of the songs stand out nicely. Titles include "Running Away Like A Child", "Love Breakdown", 'I'm Comin Down With A Thrill", "Understand Your Man", and "Caught In Another Way With Love". (Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a crease on one corner.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Capitol, 1976. Very Good
We don't know much about CM Lord, and this record's the only one we've ever seen from her, but she's got a nice deep soul voice, and the record's a great mix of southern-styled vocals and smoother LA backing.
