1982

LP (Item 4056) Philadelphia International, 1982 — Condition: Near Mint-

A beautiful LP of modern soul by this classic group! Production's handled by a number of stars from the Philly Sound stable, like Kenny Gamble and Dexter Wansel, and the result's a nice LP of smooth modern soul, with an excellent update of "United", plus "Lighten Up", "We Should Be Lovers", "Call On You", and "Don't Come Telling Me Lies".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

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.

Philadelphia International, 1979. Near Mint-
A great album follows up the sound of the Jerry's first for Philly International – a smooth mellow style that grooves in an all-adult mode that's a perfect setting for the aging Iceman's vocals!

Three Degrees
Philadelphia International, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Smooth female soul from one of Philly's hottest female trios – Gamble & Huff's big answer to First Choice, and an equally important force in 70s female soul!

Philadelphia International, 1979. Near Mint-
Not as hit-heavy as some of Lou's other albums for Philly International, but a nice batch of mellow jazzy soul tracks – with arrangements by Thom Bell, Bunny Sigler, Dexter Wansel, and others.

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes

Black & Blue
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Classic Philly soul from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – a killer batch of studio tracks, despite the live image of the group on the cover!

Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good
A key moment for the Philly soul scene of the 70s – and the first album to feature the MFSB backing group as a solo act on their own!

Ebony Woman

An amazing early album from Billy Paul – the start of a rich career of sophisticated soul, and a record that really put Paul on the map right away – making him one of the most soulful interpreters of song in the 70s! There's a mix of modes going on here that's a bit similar to the ... 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!

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.
