Ain't No Bout-A-Doubt It

LP (Item 35915) Warner, 1975 — Condition: Very Good
Also available
Graham Central Station — Ain't No Bout-A-Doubt It ... CD 4.99

One of the high points of Larry Graham's career – a hard-jamming set of guitar-based funk that forever put Graham Central Station on the map! There's a virtuosity to the record that's really stunning – bass, guitar, and drums all dropping into place magically alongside one another – while still managing to come across with a relaxed soulful approach that definitely makes this one more heavy funk than later years. Titles include "The Jam", "It's Alright", "I Can't Stand The Rain", "It Ain't Nothin But A Warner Bros Party", and "Easy Rider".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Still in the shrink, with hype 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.

Graham Central Station

Mirror
Warner, 1976. Very Good+
Larry Graham and crew are definitely going for a fuller sound on this set – starting off the record with a funky marching band, in Tusk-like fashion – then rolling into some bass-heavy funk that tops even their previous records for tightness! The groove is a key element in the growth ... LP, Vinyl record album

Graham Central Station

Release Yourself
Warner, 1974. Very Good
The second album by Larry Graham and his Graham Central Station outfit – and as slick a bit of LA 70s funk as you'll ever find! Graham's bass is in the lead, giving the record the same deep punch he gave the work of Sly Stone back when he was in the Family Stone – but the whole group's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bootsy's Rubber Band

This Boot Is Made For Fonk-N
Warner, 1979. Very Good+
Bootsy's still keeping the P-Funk flag flying high at the end of the 70s – arguably stepping out here with a sound that's got more of the Parliafunkadelicment elements intact than some of George Clinton's other spinoff groups! The tracks are long, and plenty jamming – still with plenty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Jarreau

We Got By
Warner, 1975. Near Mint-
Al's first major label record – cut when he was an emerging soul jazz vocalist, but before he'd gone totally over the top in super-slick hit mode. The album's got a good 70s LA jazzy backing, with guests like Dave Grusin, Arthur Adams, and Larry Bunker keeping the music moving at a nice pace. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roger (Roger Troutman)

Many Facets Of Roger
Warner, 1981. Very Good
There's many facets of Roger – and they're all pretty darn funky! From this vantage point, all we can think of is that Roger Troutman must have had some sort of crystal ball to see into the hip hop sampling future – either that, or he was busy cooking up west coast gangster funk drones ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dionne Warwick

Dionne (Warner)
Warner, 1972. Sealed
A great post-Scepter album by Dionne Warwick – one that still has her working with Burt Bacharach, but at a level that's somehow more mature, more adult than even before! There's a gentle quality here that gets beyond the straighter pop of Warwick's 60s hits, and moves into the realm ... LP, Vinyl record album

LaBelle

LaBelle
Warner, 1971. Very Good
Labelle's first album of rockin soul for Warner, and a great batch of deep soul tracks that take the group far far beyond their 60s girl group recordings! The album's a stunner – complete with ripping vocals by Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash – and done in a hip style that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tower Of Power

Live & In Living Color
Warner, 1976. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony & The Camp

Suspense
Warner, 1988. Very Good

Undisputed Truth

Smokin'
Warner/Whitfield, 1979. Very Good+
The Undisputed Truth are still going very strong at the end of the 70s – working with original producer Norman Whitfield, in a groove that's every bit as wonderful as their early years! There's a killer mix of funk and deeper soul here that few other acts could handle this well – a way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sherrick

Sherrick
Warner, 1987. Very Good+
Percolating 80s soul from Sherrick – set to some catchy arrangements of keyboards, bass pedals, and synth drums! The approach here is surprisingly strong for the time, with a groove that's a bit more in the initial 80s groove style of the earlier part of the decade, and quite unusual for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Etta James

Deep In The Night
Warner, 1978. Very Good+
Titles include "Laying Beside You", "Only Women Bleed", "Lovesick Blues", "Piece Of My Heart", "Strange Man", and "Blind Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
