Takes Guys & Dolls Disco

LP (Item 40402) 20th Century, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

Al Capps arranged and conducted this disco record featuring songs from the soundtrack to Guys and Dolls. The notes on the back cover credit Capps for his "tasteful, happy, 'today' treatments of the much loved score". Songs include "A Bushel and a Peck", "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat", "Luck Be A Lady", "If I Were a Bell", and "The Oldest Established".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner.)

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.

20th Century, 1976. Very Good
Carl Douglas' classic pop soul track about "Kung Fu Fighting" is an enduring favorite, as we're reminded everytime our local UHF station cops it for a promo for a martial arts double feature they're running on Saturday afternoon! The rest of the tracks on here aren't as great, but there's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Chandler

Get Down
Chi Sound/20th Century, 1978. Very Good+
The legendary Gene Chandler gets down, and gets down good – in this classic late 70s set of clubby numbers and upbeat groovers! The set's one of the best moments on the Chi-Soul series from producer Carl Davis – and features a nicely evolved version of earlier Chicago soul modes from ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1973. Very Good+
Great stuff from the girls who first put Barry White on the map! The record is the group's second – and by this point, Barry had developed that tight snapping drum sound that made his orchestral albums work so well. You'll hear it to good effect on most songs on the LP, which have a great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kinsman Dazz

Dazz
20th Century, 1979. Very Good+
Kinsman Dazz are even funkier here than before – showing off their Ohio roots, and pointing the way towards the classic Dazz Band sound they'd forge in the 80s! Rhythms are very tight throughout – but still often touched with the jazzy elements that made the group so great in their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Edwin Starr

Clean
20th Century, 1978. Near Mint-
A solid entry from Edwin Starr's late 70s comeback into the clubs – a set that's miles from his harder soul for Motown, but which still has some pretty great vocals overall! Edwin's working here with Lamont Dozier, who helps bring his Detroit groove into smoother California territory – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Chandler

'80
Chi Sound/20th Century, 1980. Sealed
A nice record of modern soul that got a bit overlooked at the time because of the poor fate of the Chi-Sound label. The record's filled with Chicago soul talent like Tom Tom 84, Sonny Sanders, and Carl Davis, and it's a good updating of Gene's Chicago soul sound towards a style that's more modern ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trip, Early 60s/Mid 70s. Very Good+ 2LP
Not "Moonshadow" stuff, but a nice compilation of early material by Patti Labelle and her first group. Lots of early girl group soul stuff here, including "I Sold My Heart to the Junkman". LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
One of Pat Lundy's earliest recordings – done for Columbia with a mixture of uptown soul and jazz arrangements, the former handled by Bert DeCoteaux, the latter done by Ray Bryant! John Hammond put the set together, obviously searching for another female soul talent after failing with Aretha ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone Davis

Can I Change My Mind
Dakar, 1969. Near Mint-
The debut album from Tyrone Davis – a supreme achievement for the Chicago soul scene of the late 60s, and a record with a sound that would set the standard for years to come! Tyrone had been bumping around as a blusier singer before this set – but here, working with arrangements by Don ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martha Reeves & The Vandellas

Ridin' High
Gordy, 1968. Very Good+
After a few years a Motown's big crossover chart star, how could Martha not be Riding High? This album keeps the groove right on rolling, with a strident batch of girl soul tracks that includes a mixture of pop and Motown tunes – including "Forget Me Not", "Honey Chile", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Redd Holt Unlimited

Other Side Of The Moon
Paula, 1975. Very Good+
This was Redd's second album after the breakup of the Young-Holt team – and it's also the tightest. The best cuts have this hard funk sound that features tightly stepping drums by Redd, and a classic choppy groove that's best summed up in the cut "Do It Baby", a favorite with hip ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barrabas

Barrabas
Atco, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A mid-70s effort from Barrabas, and a set that still has the group burning along in a really great way – blending elements of soul and funk with a sharp instrumental jamming style that might have been prog in the hands of someone else, but which here keeps things grooving in a really nice way! ...
