LP (Item 39435) Elektra, 1982 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Love the groove here – a very unique take on harmony soul, and one that's steeped in jazzy roots, but carried off with a classy 80s groove! Credit really goes to group member Augie Johnson, who also produced the whole thing – getting this great mix of soul and funky fusion put together perfectly – all with these complicated elements that really push the vocal parts past any obvious territory – a wicked sound that really sets Side Effect apart from the rest. Miki Howard's leads are bold and proud, but the male harmonies are a key component of the record too – and the whole thing's got just the right blend of polish and soul to keep Side Effect a favorite of ours for many years. Titles include "Take Me As I Am", "My Way", "Attitudes", "You Can Do It", "Music Is My Way Of Life", "Forever My Love", and "I Want To". (White label promo.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Straight From The Heart
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+
A huge album for Patrice Rushen – thanks largely to the track "Forget Me Nots", which is a perfect blend of jazz and soul, in that warm sweet style she was forging after her early days as more of a fusion artist. The rest of the album's every bit as great – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Starbooty
Elektra, 1978. Very Good
A killer side project from Roy Ayers – recorded right around the same time as the Ramp album, but with a different feel over all – proof that the Ayers empire was really exploding at the end of the 70s! The vibe here is quite similar to some of Roy's own albums over at Polydor – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Songs include "Be Free", "No More", "Go On Without You", "Danger Zone", "Teaser", and "The One I Need". LP, Vinyl record album
Mighty Fire
Elektra, 1982. Very Good
Smooth stepping soul from Mighty Fire – a group who burn with a great mellow version of their name, which really helps to focus their energy throughout! There's a cool, classy vibe to the set – one that draws on the professional strengths of some of the group members, who also find a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funkadelic
Westbound, 1970. Very Good
One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Detroit soul scene! As you might guess from the title, the album is Funkadelic's first – and it's a swirling mass of psychedelic guitars, echoey drums, and bass-heavy riffing, all topped off by the band's harmony vocals, which sound like a ... LP, Vinyl record album
It's All Yours
Elektra, 1984. Near Mint-
Massive work from Starpoint – one of the few groups from the 80s groove generation who could tighten up their act, yet still keep all the best elements of their music firmly in place! The album's got a feel that's a bit more polished than their first few records – but not much more, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spice Of Life
Mercury, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Perhaps the greatest record Jerry Butler made in the 70s, and a very tight bit of baroque Chicago soul with arrangements and production by Samuel F. Brown III. The tracks are a good mix of originals and covers, and they all show Jerry going way past his Gamble & Huff/Mercury years – into ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heartache
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint-
From the look of the cover, and Leslie's silly expression on the front, this album should be a bad one – but it ends up being a surprisingly great batch of well-produced modern soul tunes. The record's one of a few great ones that Elektra snuck onto the market during the early 80s – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1975. Good+ Gatefold
Killer stuff from this legendary Philly soul instrumental combo – with funky soul horns, unstoppable dancefloor ready rhythms and those soul-stirring strings – and right up there with their best ever! Bobby Martin arranged almost every track – and the record's a great example of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1976. Very Good+
Features some soulful arrangements from Arif Mardin in parts – and tracks include "Groovin", "100% Absent", "Lost In The Wilderness", "Mr Fantasy", and "You Send Me". LP, Vinyl record album
Chameleon
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint-
A group that you may not know by name – but which features some top-shelf production at the helm – work by both Fred Wesley and Azar Lawrance, plus supervision from one of the Mizell brothers! With all that talent on board, the record's way more than just another obscure one-off funk ... LP, Vinyl record album
