Motion

LP (Item 400131) Warner, 1984 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A tasty LP from Deodato's later years where he was leaning a little more heavily on commercial R&B and soul for inspiration than his jazzier approach of earlier years. Motion has Deodato moving into the realm of 80s soul – using a bit more of an electro feel overall – one that often includes work on Prophet, Linn drums, and DMX next to the more traditional instrumentation of the set. There's some great vocals from the Juicy team of Jerry and Katreese Barnes – singing in a style that's deeply soulful, and which really balances out the electronics with a good deal of vocal warmth. Camille also sings on a few tracks on the set, and titles include "SOS Fire In The Sky", "Never Knew Love", "Bus Stop", "Motion", "Are You For Real", and "Make You Feel Good". (Cover has a cutout notch, edge wear, and an old price sticker.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

A live set from Deodato – but one that's very much in the mode of his best CTI studio sessions – with soaring, over the top keyboard work that's totally great – backed by some tightly compressed guitar, bass, and drums, with just enough funk in the mix to keep things interesting! ...

There's a wizard on the cover, but the set's way more fusion than fantasy – tightly jamming work from Matrix, a combo who shone brightly at the end of the 70s!

A nice collaboration between Miles and Marcus Miller from the latter part of Miles career. As much of the recording here is overdubbed, with many multiple instruments played by Miller, it doesn't have the improvised vibe of Miles' classic performances, but the songwriting and arrangements are head ...

Soaring, sweeping piano work from Paul Smith – a fluid player who was already known for his "liquid sounds" of the 50s, and who gets a great showcase here in a batch of bossa-inflected material! The style here is less straight bossa than you might think – and Smith really ... LP, Vinyl record album
