An unusual little album for Jimmy – much more down-home than most of his earlier recordings, in a style that's got a rootsy feel that's quite unusual, especially given that Jimmy was always equal parts blues and jazz singer on other sets. The move seems to be a clear attempt to "authenticate" Jimmy's sound for the college crowd at the time – and is fine, but it's not really the Jimmy we know. However, the album does have one really MASSIVE funky track – the standout "Thoughts Of Home", co-written and produced by Bill Cosby – who also says "smokin" on the choruses of the tune! The track's got a rolling, rattling funky sound that's amazing – and these mad horn parts that are as great as the heavy organ and guitar in the grooves! The rest of the set was produced by Ed Michel, with that down-homey feel – and titles include "Pillar To Post", "You Can't Do A Thing When You're Drunk", "Parcel Post Blues", "Bags Under My Eyes", and "Bug To Put N Yo Year".

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.

ABC, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A killer bit of crossover pop from the mid 60s – and the kind of groover that brought the Carolina beach sound to the top 40 charts! Includes the group's classic hit "Girl Watcher", a groover that we always enjoy hearing, plus other nice ones like "The Soul Clap", "Lo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible work – a record that should be in every household! Smokey breaks free of the group sound of the Miracles albums – hitting a whole new mode, and inventing the "Quiet Storm" radio format along the way! The title cut – "Quiet Storm" – is a ... LP, Vinyl record album

There Is
Cadet, 1968. Very Good
Fantastic bit of Chicago soul, featuring the Dells at their most mature, banked in amazing arrangements by the great Charles Stepney. There's a long version of "Stay In My Corner", plus the great title cut, and two fantastic tracks that have some great John Cage-esque prepared piano on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Records, 1972. Very Good
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time!

Impulse, 1960. Good+ Gatefold
A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s! We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you ... LP, Vinyl record album

Run-DMC
Profile, 1984. Good+
The classic self-titled LP that changed hip hop (and much of modern pop) forever! There's little we can add to the canon for this record. Run DMC ushered in a new era in contemporary urban culture, a harder hitting style of rap the bust out of the inner cities and into consciousness of an entire ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flute 'N Oboe
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Good+
Goofy cover, but like Shank's various reed projects, it works pretty well. Bob Cooper conducts a small string section, and joins Shank – who's playing flute– on Oboe. Howard Roberts' guitar jazzes the thing up a bit, as the band bounces through 9 tracks, including "Gypsy In My ... LP, Vinyl record album
