Zoot! (aka All Happening Zoot Money's Big Roll Band At Klook's Kleek)

LP (Item 35250) EMI (UK), 1966 — Condition: Sealed

Excellent "a go-go" soul from Brit beat group phenom Zoot Money – recorded in a style that was very faithful to his roots in US soul and R&B, but with the usual UK touches. The record was recorded live at the Klook's Kleek nightclub in London – and it's got some of the best work we've heard in this mode from the time. Side two features a tasty "James Brown Medley" with some of James' best funky numbers from the time – plus a funky instrumental reading of "Mashed Potato USA". Other tracks include "Florence Of Arabia", "Chauffer", and "Barefootin".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Kwick
EMI, 1980. Very Good+
Sweet 80s groove from Kwick – a quartet who were once known as The Newcomers, and recorded some Memphis singles for Stax – but who here reemerge more than fully-formed – leaping into the new decade with an amazingly rich sound!

Don Thompson

Fanny Brown
Brunswick, 1977. Near Mint-
The one and only album from drummer Don Thompson – a funky Brunswick classic from the 70s, and one of the most unique records we've ever heard from the label at the time! Don's got this style of singing that has a bit of a southern twang at times, but he works with grooves that are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rotary Connection

Peace
Cadet, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the coolest Christmas albums ever – a tripped-out classic from Chicago's legendary Rotary Connection!

Touch

Energizer
Brunswick, 1975. Very Good+
Wonderfully tight grooves from Touch – a group who step out here with their debut album, but who had been playing for years on a variety of other studio work! The core combo is wonderful – lots of choppy guitar over the tight bass and drums – and vocals that often have more than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Bell & The Drells

Dance Your Troubles Away
TSOP, 1975. Near Mint-
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer!

Lovelock
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
Gene Page at the height of his 70s powers – using all the talents he forged as a background artist for other soul talents, and all the majesty he added to his soundtrack work – all focused nicely into a sweet set of warmly soulful grooves! The style's a bit clubby, but also has some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Vera & Judy Clay

Storybook Children
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
One of the only few albums to ever feature the vocals of Judy Clay – a wonderful deep soul singer who also cut a handful of excellent singles for Stax in the late 60s! Like some of that work – specifically her Stax duets with William Bell – this set really showcases Judy's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dee Dee Bridgewater (1976)
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Dee Dee Bridgewater's first album as a soul singer – recorded a few years after she first broke on the scene as a righteous jazz vocalist on hip early 70s classics! The sound here is different than the material Bridgewater started with, but still plenty great from a soul perspective – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gold Mind, 1979. Near Mint-
The title's a bit strange – given that Bunny Sigler started out as a soul singer in the late 60s, and continued to record well into the 70s too – yet it's also a reminder that by the time of this set, Sigler had become a real powerhouse on the Philly club scene – working as a ...

Philadelphia International, 1977. Near Mint-
