Jimmy Castor (The Everything Man) & The Jimmy Castor Bunch

LP (Item 3627) Atlantic, 1974 — Condition: Very Good

Goofy record featuring the saxophone skills of Jimmy Castor. Mr. C blows away on a number of covers of 70's soul hits like "Love Train", "Love's Theme" and "All In Love is Fair", plus a few pop hits like "Walk on the Wild Side". Also with two originals, "The Everything Man" and "Heaven Kissed".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeeve. Cover has light wear, a promo sticker, and a cutout notch.)

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.

Roberta Flack

First Take
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
What can we say? We've heard this one a million times, it sold over a million copies – but it's still incredible! The record is Roberta's first, and it features her in a mellow trio format, augmented by some occasional larger arrangements by William Fischer. At most points, though, the ...

LaVern Baker

Blues Ballads
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good
LaVern Baker serves up work in styles she does best – blues and ballads, all put together here with a high level of class that's really a cut above the usual 50s R&B! Given the lateness of this session, there's definitely an attempt by Atlantic to push Baker into some more sophisticated ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roberta Flack

Chapter Two
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint-
Mindblowing work from Roberta Flack – an album that should be in the collection of any fan of righteous soul music! Forget all the wimpier modes of Flack's later years – because here, the young Roberta is a vision of positive power and spiritual soul – a singer with roots in jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson Pickett

Exciting Wilson Pickett
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint-
Always exciting work from the Wicked Pickett – a set that's filled with sharp-edged soul tracks throughout – and which perfectly shows why Wilson was a key link between funk and soul back in the 60s! The album was recorded at the two great hubs of southern soul production in the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Trammps

Disco Inferno
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good
A landmark album from The Trammps – and a record that broke the group firmly out of the Philly ghetto, yet still carried all the best touches of the Sigma scene! Sure, the title track was a super-huge hit – thanks to a plug in Saturday Night Fever – but the record itself is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Evans

Dealing With Hard Times
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good
A sublime set of soul instrumentals – very funky work, and sort of a 70s follow-up to the Soulful Strings albums on Cadet Records from the 60s! Maestro Richard Evans is at the top of his game here – stepping out with that hip Chisoul mode he first forged at Chess, tuned here towards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Curtom, 1978. Very Good+
The standout classic from Curtom disco diva Linda Clifford – and an album that showed that Chicago could rival Philly in the clubby groove department! Linda has a proud presence that really matches that of her better-known sisters in the City Of Brotherly Love – and she's singing here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gil Scott-Heron

Secrets
Arista, 1978. Very Good+
A key crossover set from Gil Scott-Heron – still every bit as political as his earlier work, but with a stronger sense of soul as well! The great Brian Jackson is firmly in tow here – bringing warm keyboards and a nice little groove to most of the tracks – and the previous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rotary Connection

Rotary Connection
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+
One of the best Rotary Connection albums for Cadet – with an incredible baroque spacey soul sound that still feels very fresh today! The group's vocals are especially eerie – and float around these wild arrangements by Charles Stepney, peppered with strings, soul, fuzzy guitars, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
