Easy Ridin

LP (Item 36095) Mercury, 1970 — Condition: Good+

Pretty decent soul/rock material from the early 70s. The liner notes say that these guys started their career working with Buddy Miles, Electric Flag, and Sam & Dave – but the record's got a lot more of a soul vibe than you might expect, and it reminds us of some of the more rock-sounding soul acts on Stax from the same time. Titles include "7 1/2", "Don't Bogart Me", "The Pusher", "Who Can We Depend On?", and "You Never Get Too Big".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. Cover has ring & edge wear, clear tape on the seams, and some stains.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.



You might be interested


Mercury, 1977. Very Good
A great step forward for The Bar-Kays – an album that actually has them taking on a few mellower moments, amidst the heavy funk you might expect – yet all without softening their groove at all! The album's very much in the best spirit of the group's Mercury debut – still recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album

Con Funk Shun

Secrets
Mercury, 1977. Very Good
A great early album from Con Funk Shun – a mix of funkier tunes and some excellent smooth modern ones in step with the mellower work by Cameo or Maze – done with more soaringly emotional sounds that moves beyond their peers! A love for earlier 70s styles might be what pushes Secrets ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Miles

Them Changes
Mercury, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark crossover album – featuring Buddy Miles' mixed Freedom Express group, and a heavy jazz-rock sound that would soon dominate the charts with other groups. Buddy's drums are super-heavy, even if his vocals always get us the wrong way. Includes the original recording of "Them ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bohannon

Cut Loose
Mercury, 1979. Very Good+
A great set of clubby tunes from Bohannon – a bit discoey, to be sure, but still with plenty of the odd rhythms and odd touches of his earlier work! The tracks here are all long and chunky – made up of strutting drum bits that are far from conventional, often topped by oddly riffing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dee Dee Warwick

Foolish Fool
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good
Excellent work from Dee Dee Warwick – Dionne's more soulful sister, and a heck of a singer! The record's got a mix of uptown soul production and deeper soul styles, with a sophisticated style that reminds us of Chicago work by singers like Joann Garrett, Marlena Shaw, or Ruby Andrews – ...

Louis Jordan

Man, We're Wailin
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of the heaviest of Louis' mid 50s recordings – recorded live, or so we're supposed to think by the subtitle – which reads "Louis Jordan & His Brilliant Tympany 5 In A Typical Late, Late, Late Night Club Performance"! Louis' voice and sax are better than we remember ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wing/Mercury, 1956. Near Mint-
Somebody up there digs Louis Jordan – and we do too – thanks to the searing sound of these Mercury Records sides from the 50s! The approach here is a bit more rocking and R&B-influenced than Jordan's initial material – and Louis goes back to some classics, reworks their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Miles

Message To The People
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold
A classic bit of tripped-out soul from Buddy Miles – put together with a lot of nice psychedelic production, and an overall sound that stays nice and deep on the bottom end of things – and lets Buddy rock out heavily on rootsy vocals. There's no real standout funky numbers, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alicia Myers

Alicia
MCA, 1981. Very Good
Massive work from Alicia Myers – a set that's right up there with her One Way recordings, but with some deeper, more personal touches as well! Production is by Kevin McCord and Al Perkins from the One Way camp – and they bring in a nice mix of the funkier numbers that group was known ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

Songs In The Key Of Life
Tamla, 1976. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A sweet little double LP – one that had some folks saying that Stevie should have stayed away from the "2LP syndrome", but for us a real treasure with lots of hidden gems. Besides the hits "Isn't She Lovely" and "Sir Duke", which were more than enough to carry ... LP, Vinyl record album
