Good To See You

LP (Item 4069) Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978 — Condition: Sealed

Sophisticated soul from the great Walter Jackson – one of the best voices ever to come out of the Chicago soul scene, and a wonderful interpreter of just about any material! The record's got some wonderful arrangements by Riley Hampton – who worked with Jackson on his earlier sessions for Okeh – and the record recasts Walter as a smooth modern singer with an adult approach, kind of in the same style as Teddy Pendergrass in the late 70s. Includes "Good To See You", "We Could Fly", "Open Up Your Heart", "If I Had My Way", "I Won't Ever Remember Losing You", and "Time". Not nearly as sublime as his work for Okeh, but still not a bad batch of tracks!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Still sealed, with a cut corner and lightly bent corners.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful! Did we say that enough? We hope so, because we love Walter Jackson to death, and we can think of no finer treat than listening to this great batch of soul cuts that he cut for the Okeh label during the mid and late 60s in Chicago.

Walter Jackson

Tell Me Where It Hurts
Columbia, 1981. Very Good+
Sweet smooth soul from Walter Jackson – recording here in his later years, with a style that's a lot more modern than his classic 60s recordings for Okeh, but still surprisingly nice, and a great evolution of his "Iceman" soul sound!

Understanding
United Artists, 1972. Near Mint-
Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! ...

Bobby Womack

Safety Zone
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
Sweet funky soul from the great Bobby Womack – a record that mixes Bobby's roots with some of the more righteous modes he picked up on Across 110th Street – blended here in a style that's completely sublime! The record was one of Womack's first to be entirely recorded on the west coast ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Chandler

Here's To Love
Chi Sound/20th Century, 1981. Near Mint-
One of Gene Chandler's later albums recorded for Carl Davis' Chi-Sound label. The poor fate of the Chi-Sound label helped this nice little modern soul gem fall into sidebar like oscurity, but the pulls from heavy Chicago soul talent like Tom Tom 84, Sonny Sanders, and Carl Davis, and it does a ...

Brass Construction

Brass Construction II
United Artists, 1976. Near Mint-
The second album from Brass Construction – heavy horns, basslines, and stellar dancefloor grooves – a stone classic! The first one was totally great, but they cast a wider stylistic claim on II – their trademark funky sound is still very firmly in place, but they bring more to ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+
Bobby's so great, it's hard to fit all of his good stuff on one LP – but this set does a pretty darn good job, and includes 12 tracks from his legendary years on United Artists! Hearing this set, we're stunned to realize just how many great tracks Bobby turned out over the years – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

Communication
United Artists, 1971. Very Good+
One of the all-time great ones from Bobby Womack – and a set that definitely helped push the singer into the mainstream of soul in the 70s! Bobby says thanks to Sly Stone on the back of this album – and it's clear that he's gotten a good dose of Sly's funky soul to kick things up a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1974. Sealed
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... LP, Vinyl record album

Little Anthony & The Imperials

Best Of Little Anthony & The Imperials
United Artists/Veep, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled all the arrangments and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Garnet Mimms & The Enchanters

Cry Baby & 11 Other Hits (2LP test pressing)
United Artists, 1965. Near Mint- 2LP
An excellent early Garnet Mimms LP on United Artists – one of the few albums he recorded (period!), and cut featuring vocal backings by his group The Enchanters. We looooove Garnet's vocals to death, rank them up there with the best of the 60s underground – singers like Darrell Banks ... 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 ...
