I Want You

LP (Item 3818) Tamla, 1976 — Condition: Very Good+
An incredible record – quite possibly our favorite ever by Marvin Gaye! The album is quite unique – written by Leon Ware, and recorded in collaboration with him – done as a "suite" of tracks based on themes of passion, joy, and new love – all of which were very much on the mind of Marvin during his troubled years of the mid 70s. The whole thing's beautifully put together – superbly orchestrated with just the right funky touches, and even a sweet bit of electronics to give the set a nice edge. An amazing album – one of those soul records that goes deeper and deeper than you ever thought pop music could go – filled with great tracks that include "I Want You", "After the Dance", "Come Live With Me", and "Since I Had You". Genius – pure genius!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Late 70s repress. Cover has minimal wear.)

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.

Marvin Gaye

Moods Of Marvin Gaye
Tamla, 1966. Very Good+
The moods of Marvin Gaye are many, even at this early point in his career – as the set has the young Marvin really taking off strongly – hitting hard on classic Motown groovers, but also showing a sensitive side at times too! The album kicks off with some killer rhythms on cuts like ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson

Love Breeze
Tamla, 1978. Near Mint-
Love Breeze finds Smokey effortlessly cutting back and forth from a funky 70s dancefloor soul mode to more delicate, classic soul steeped numbers and slow jams. He does it all very well on a set we overlooked for too many years! Titles include "Why You Wanna See My Bad Side", "Feeli ... LP, Vinyl record album

Valerie Simpson

Valerie Simpson
Tamla, 1972. Near Mint-
Valerie Simpson really shines in the spotlight here, on an early solo outing for Motown – not yet paired with Nick Ashford at a vocal level, but still getting plenty of help from her future musical partner on both production and songwriting! The approach here is sometimes a bit more personal ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

Songs In The Key Of Life
Tamla, 1976. Near Mint- 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

Stevie Wonder

Hotter Than July
Tamla, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold
A bit smoother than early days, but still very nice and soulful – and did we expect any less from Stevie? The record's got a nicely flanged-out soul groove – with a style that kind of expands on the vocal and keyboard production of the early 70s, taking the groove towards a sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelma Houston

Any Way You Like It
Tamla, 1976. Very Good+
Smoking Motown work from Thelma Houston – a great 70s set that catches the singer at the top of her groove! The album's polished, but never in a too-commercial way – and the grooves acknowledge the growing role of the dancefloor in mainstream soul, yet also mostly stay away from some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1967. Near Mint-
Lots of great ones – from that period when Smokey was making the group an all-male one, with a harmony sound that was a bit harder than earlier days. Titles include "Going To A Go Go", "Tracks Of My Tears", "Ooo Baby Baby", "I Second That Emotion", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

Greatest Hits – From The Beginning
Tamla, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Like the sticker on the cover says – 2 record album, 22 hit songs! This one's got just about all you'd need from the early days of Smokey & The Miracles – perfect falsetto harmony soul that shaped a generation of singers, and which was some of Motown's greatest work in the early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gladys Knight & The Pips

Claudine – Original Soundtrack
Buddah, 1974. Sealed
A wonderful mid 70s set from Gladys Knight & The Pips – a soundtrack date written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, who really helps bring a lot of depth to their music! Curtis really helps Knight and the group get out of some of their hit cliches of the 70s, and find some hipper space ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Simon

Love Vibrations
Spring, 1978. Sealed
By this point in his career, Joe's a long way from the country soul of "The Chokin' Kind" – and is working here with Norman Harris in a set of strident club-oriented tracks designed to keep him fresh for the 70s. This approach doesn't always work with Joe, largely because of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Charles & Cleo Laine

Porgy & Bess (200 gram remaster)
RCA/Classic, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A surprisingly nice reworking of the Gershwin score – and Ray and Cleo are a surprisingly nice match on vocals! LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1979. Near Mint-
An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned ... LP, Vinyl record album
