Live In New Orleans

LP (Item 35428) Capitol, 1981 — Condition: Very Good
2LP Gatefold
Also available
Maze — Live In New Orleans ... LP 23.99

A live album from the mighty Frankie Beverly and Maze – and a set that's every bit as important as their studio classics for Capitol Records! It's always a sign of how huge Frankie Beverly was during the 80s that Capitol let him cut not one, but two double live albums during the early part of the decade – and this one, his first, has the band grooving wonderfully before a crowd going mad in the Crescent City – while the group keep all the perfection, sharp grooves, and sophisticated soul that they had on record! The songs retain all the charm of the studio renditions – and are stretched out a bit more in the live setting, with some really nice interplay with the crowd – who are clearly going nuts in the presence of the group. Titles include the famous live version of "Joy & Pain" – sampled heavily back in the day – plus other classics that include live takes on "Happy Feelins", "Southern Girl", "Look At California", "Before I Let Go", "We Need Love To Love", "The Look In Your Eyes", "Running Away", "Reason", "Feel That You're Fallin", "You", and "Changing Times".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original purple label pressing. Cover has some ring and edge wear, a sticker spot, and a stuck gatefold.)

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.

Freddie Jackson

Rock Me Tonight
Capitol, 1985. Very Good+
Freddie Jackson was certainly one of the biggest new soul stars of the 80s – and this debut LP is still a treasure! Freddie's got a skill that transcends his age – with an approach that's decidedly 80s, but classic enough to last for years and years. The songs on the record are all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Redding

Blood Brother
Capitol/Haven, 1974. Very Good+
A strange little soul album – produced and written by the team of Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, with arrangements by Michael Omartian, and an overall sound that's kind of a mixture of soul and more baroque type backings. The whole thing's not bad overall – but it does lack the punch ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atco, 1966. Very Good
A rare Atlantic LP from the 60s – one that showcases two different sides of singer Mary Wells, in a mode that's different than her work for other labels! The "two sides" in the title are Mary's soul side and her more sophisticated one – the former served up in a batch of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Scepter, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
The monumental debut of BT Express – and an excellent funk album that often gets overlooked by fans of the music because of the band's bigger fame as a disco group! This first record has the combo grooving hard and instrumentally – in the mode of a tight blacksploitation soundtrack, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Bristol

Feeling The Magic
MGM, 1975. Near Mint-
Great stuff from one of the unsung heroes of 70s soul! The record's a bit rawer than some of Johnny's earlier work – and it's got a sexy cover that puts him more in the camp of Roy Ayers or Leroy Hutson, at least from a visual perspective! The whole album was written and produced by Johnny ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1967. Very Good+
A weird little record from Bill Cosby – a set that's not as all-out funky as some of his other vocal albums, but still pretty nice overall! The style here is more bluesy than soul-based, but production is still by Fred Smith, of 103rd Street Rhythm Band fame – and the album has a sense ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eloise Laws

Eloise Laws
Liberty, 1980. Near Mint-
Another soulful member of the great Laws family – sweet modern soul from the great Eloise! The album's a bit in the mode of the Debra Laws album from the same period – warmly done, with rich production touches, but also a bit of a crackling undercurrent. Eloise isn't as modern ...

Vee Jay, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A rare album of classic doo wop – from one of Chicago's greatest harmony groups! In contrast to labelmates The El Dorados, The Spaniels were a bit smoother, and added more of a sweet harmony sound to their style – as you'll know from tracks like "Goodnite Sweetheart Goodnite" ...

H&L, 1977. Near Mint-
Bassist Wilbur Bascomb was one of the 70s best studio musicians on the instrument, and this is one of his few albums as a leader. The record features a lively electric group playing in a bass-heavy funk style. The album's not totally right on, but it does have a kind of P-Funk sound to it. ... LP, Vinyl record album
