An unusual group – but a nice little record! New York City Band are less of a group on their own, than a combo pulled together for this album – an ersatz soundtrack to the film Sunnyside, a disco-era production starring John Travolta's younger brother Joey! The group's mostly directed and organized by keyboardist Harold Wheeler, who gives their work a smooth groove that's pretty nice on the best cuts – a bit disco-fied, but also with some jazz funk touches – and still pretty strong thanks to vocal contributions from Luther Vandross, Lani Groves, and others. Titles include "Loving You", "Got To Have Your Body", "Ride That Wave", "New York City Band", "Sometimes", and "Sunnyside". (Cover has a promo stamp, some wear and creasing, and a small sticker on front.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Eddie Kendricks
Tamla, 1973. Sealed
