People's Choir Of Operation Push

LP (Item 40802) Truth/Stax, 1973 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A gospel album, to be sure, but also one with a pretty darn hip sound – as it's directed by Reverand Marvin Yancy (of The Independents, a group that featured Jesse Jackson's brother Chuck), and arrangements by Gene Barge, who did a lot of hip work for Chess/Cadet. Most tracks have a hip soul style that's not that different from other gospelly soul on Stax – like work by The Staple Singers or Rance Allen – and the album features a cover of "Love Train", plus the tracks "Pass Me Not", "I'm A Child Of The King", "The Push Is On", and "One More Day". (Cover has a half split top seam.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

What You Need
Fantasy, 1976. Very Good Gatefold
Quite possibly the greatest album ever from Side Effect – a wonderful set that mixes their soulful harmonies with some killer jazz funk from Wayne Henderson!

Dramatic Jackpot
ABC, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
One of their best, and a real masterpiece of 70's group soul. The arrangements are sweet, but the group is as hard as they ever were, but free to soar in their singing with the massive arrangements provided by the Detroit Groovesville crew. Ron Banks and LJ Reynolds are in perfect form, and this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peacock, 1959. Very Good-
A fantastic record – even if you're not into gospel! The Hummingbirds are an amazing vocal group – and their work on this first album ranks right up there with the best 50s doo-woppers, and the spare guitar backing reminds us of some of the best Atlantic work by The Clovers. And sure, ... LP, Vinyl record album
