Luther's Blues

Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

One of the only blues records you'll ever find on Motown – and a mostly straight blues affair with a hard electric sound to it. The album's mostly in the early Alligator Records camp – but there's a few nice funky cuts, like "Now You Got It" and "Into My Life", which both have strong rhythm backing, and a smoother groove that kind of cuts the blues quotient a bit. That's a good thing for us, in case you couldn't tell!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has two cutout notches, some surface wear, and is lightly stained at the bottom 4 inches.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Muddy Waters

Electric Mud
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
The funk-tinged, pyschedelic soul album from Muddy Waters – one that irritated many a blues purist in its day – but it's finally reaching its earned status as a leftfield gem!

In The Mood
Columbia, 1979. Near Mint-
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too!

Candido

Beautiful
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good
A beautiful bit of Latin funk – and one of the rarest albums ever from the mighty Candido!
