Lovesexy

LP (Item 358329) Paisley Park, 1988 — Condition: Very Good+

It's the late 80s and after the decision to keep the Black album in the can, Prince gives us Lovesexy. Not his finest moment, but far from his weakest, with more than a couple nice numbers like "Alphabet Street", "Lovesexy", "When 2 R In Love" and "Anna Stesia".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Prince
Warner, 1979. Very Good+
An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second album, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you can really hear the seeds of his later efforts – a really remarkable, unique, and fascinating ...

Prince

Purple Rain
Warner, 1984. Very Good+
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prince

Parade
Paisley Park, 1986. Very Good+ Gatefold
Prince in a grand groove – really hitting a new level of funk with a razor-sharp edge – and even blowing away some of his work on previous records! The record's a soundtrack for a film – Under The Cherry Moon – and although that movie never had the success of Purple Rain, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ronn, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A landmark bit of southern soul from the great Toussaint McCall – a wonderfully talented singer, songwriter, and organist – every bit as great as Otis Redding, James Carr, and other southern soul great of the 60s! This album is Toussaint's strongest legacy – known best for its ... LP, Vinyl record album

Garnet Mimms & The Enchanters

Cry Baby & 11 Other Hits
United Artists, 1965. Near Mint-
An excellent early Garnet Mimms LP on United Artists – one of the few albums he recorded (period!), and cut featuring vocal backings by his group The Enchanters. We looooove Garnet's vocals to death, rank them up there with the best of the 60s underground – singers like Darrell Banks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Jackson

Through All Times
ABC, 1973. Near Mint-
Lost bit of soul by Chuck Jackson, recorded in LA in the early 70s, between his Wand hit years, and his later stuff on All Platinum. The sound is sort of a rootsy studio soul sound, if that makes any sense – but some of the tracks are also a bit funky. There's a great sample on the cut ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Dees

Show Must Go On
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint-
The only full album ever recorded by the legendary Sam Dees – an artist who's probably best known for his songwriting skills on other records, but who really shines here as a lead star on his own! Dees' approach is wonderful – a bit rootsy, with some slight southern soul elements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Brown

Woman To Woman
Truth, 1974. Near Mint-
Easily one of the top 5 female southern soul albums of the 70s – a landmark record that Shirley Brown never matched again! The record's got an open, honest quality that's far deeper than even other work from the time on Stax Records – a style that's partly Memphis, but which also has ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, Late 50s. Near Mint-
One of the first full albums by the legendary Drifters – all early material cut for Atlantic Records in the immediate years after Clyde McPhatter left the group, and the quintet opened up into a wonderful second chapter of their career!

RCA, 1972. Near Mint-
A wicked lost album of righteous funk and poetic knowledge from the great Gary Byrd! Gary began his life as a soul DJ in New York, but by the early 70s, he was using his rich voice to create recordings designed to educate as much as entertain. That said, the album is as funky as it is strident, ... LP, Vinyl record album
