War Live!

LP (Item 40436) United Artists, 1973 — Condition: Very Good
2LP Gatefold

War live, a perfect step forward – especially given that the group had already been so jamming on all their previous work in the studio! This classic double-length set may well be one of the best soul live albums of the 70s – right up there with similar 2LP packages from Curtis Mayfield and Bill Withers – and like both of those, maybe an even greater flowering of the core essence than any short studio record! The album features a killer two part reading of "Slippin Into Darkness", a side-long take on "Get Down", and long versions of "Cisco Kid", "Sun Oh Son", "All Day Music", "Lonely Feelin", and "Ballero".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeves. Cover has unglued seams and light surface wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Early Detroit soul – by the great Marv Johnson, one of the first talents to be supervised by a young Berry Gordy!

Original Musiquarium I
Tamla, 1970s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A classic testament to the genius of Stevie Wonder – a collection that brings together some of his most important work of the 70s, plus a few new tracks too – all graced with a back cover note that proudly states "written, arranged, and produced by Stevie Wonder"! That note ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint-
Way more than just a greatest hits collection – as the record is one of the few albums from Solomon's years that you can ever find on vinyl, and it's a stellar collection of hard and deep soul tracks that no collection should be without!

Sly & The Family Stone

Small Talk
Epic, 1974. Very Good
Sly's still doing pretty nice for himself in 1974 – with a sound that's perhaps a bit warmer than on the early records, but still nice and soulful – and peppered with a good dose of funk! The groove is really great on the set – bubbling with a more "deep down" feel than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sugar Hill, 1982. Very Good
Although Sylvia Robinson made her big money during the 70s recording soul for the All-Platinum group of labels – and then went over big to hip hop with her Sugar Hill label – she still managed to cut a few soul sides during the 80s, and the work of Harry Ray is some of her strongest ...

Plenty of Manpower from Miquel Brown– the Canadian club singer who scored big with the classic "So Many Man So Little Time" club cut in the early 80s – then followed it up with this full album of late disco grooves! Brown's vocal approach is in the higher side of the spectrum ... LP, Vinyl record album
TSR, 1986. Very Good+
A bit less clubby than other Lime work, but still with a nice sense of groove throughout! There's almost a bit of crossover energy going on in the set – trying for the sort of hit that might have grabbed them fame back in the early 80s, but which sounds a bit out of place by the time of this ...

Philip Bailey

Chinese Wall
Columbia, 1984. Very Good+
A big breakthrough for Philip Bailey – and a record that was kind of a second-level explosion for the Earth Wind & Fire sound in the 80s! There's a definite crossover feel to the record – a style that takes Bailey's soulful vocals, and mixes them with lots of catchy hooks – ... LP, Vinyl record album
