LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Ahh . . . The 70s. It was a time when the record industry was booming so large that a guy like Wade – a minor TV actor who was a bit of a singer and entertainer – could get a crack at putting out a record because the record-making machine was working so fast you could sneak just about anyone in. Fortunately, the 70s were also a time when the best studio talents were geared up for this sort of action – so Don Kirshner got Gene Allan and Gary Knight to put together a pretty good batch of songs and arrangements for the record, and some of the Sigma Sound crew got a chance to sit in on some of the best cuts on the session, giving them a strong instrumental groove that fills in any holes that might have been left by Adam's vocal stylings. Titles include "Keeping Up With The Joneses", "Shine On Silver Moon", "This Time Around", "Two Became A Crowd", "Once More With Feeling", and "I Dedicate My Love To You".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Roy Ayers

Mystic Voyage
Polydor, 1975. Very Good
An archetypal album by Roy – and one that really shows him at the turning point of his sound! Gone are the trippier jazz funk moments of earlier albums – and in their place are some tight grooves and wonderfully spacey soul. Roy hits the dancefloor with one of his first up-tempo funk ...

Young-Holt Unlimited

Just A Melody
Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of a great run of grooves from the legendary team of bassist Eldee Young and drummer Redd Holt – a smoking batch of instrumentals done in the best Chicago soul style of the time! Young and Holt got their start in the early trio of Ramsey Lewis – but here, they've fully expanded to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cameo

Cameosis
Chocolate City, 1980. Very Good
Full-on frenetic funk from Cameo – one of the group's tightest albums, yet still without any of the too-slick sounds of later years! The sound here is amazing – and we always find ourselves wondering how a group of guys can hit such perfect grooves with just a bunch of basses, guitars, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara Lewis

Best Of Barbara Lewis
Atlantic, Mid 60s/1971. Near Mint-
Some of the best non-Motown soul to ever come out of Detroit, and a brilliant example of the uptown soul sound of the 60's! Nearly every track's a winner, and this comp of Barbara's best 60's stuff includes lots of classics like "Baby, I'm Yours", "Hello Stranger", "Stop ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maison De Soul, 1978. Very Good+
Later stuff from Irma – recorded for the rootsy Maison de Soul label, with a sound that's a lot more down and dirty than some of her classic Imperial sides from the 60s. Personally, we prefer Irma in bigger arrangements – but her vocals here are still pretty nice, and the album has a ... LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Charles

Great Ray Charles
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+
More of a jazz album than the early vocal singles of Ray Charles – but a set that definitely is as great as promised by the title! Ray's in the lead on piano – taking some strong solos, and showing us what a sensitive phraseologist he can be when needed – really showcasing that ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1962. Very Good
A classic! What seemed a silly idea at the time was true proof of Ray's genius, and the result was the most successful album of his career – and a bona-fide number one hit that rode the charts for years and years! Ray's voice works perfectly with the material, and thanks to soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Tops

Yesterday's Dreams
Motown, 1968. Very Good+
A mix of pop and soul – but in the hands of the Four Tops, just about any song takes on a new soulful life! The record features their minor hit "Yesterday's Dreams" – plus groovy versions of "Sunny", "Never My Love", "Daydream Believer", and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Super Hits
Tamla, 1960s. Very Good
Kind of an ultimate Marvin Gaye hits compilation – issued in 1970, with one of the most badass Motown covers of the time! The album's got a famous image of Gaye as a black Superman – flying high on the cover of a set that's filled with some of his best 60s work for Motown – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah Sanders

Jewels Of Thought
Impulse, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-H ... LP, Vinyl record album
