Leon Haywood Story – Then & Now

LP (Item 408516) Eve Jim, 1970s/1980s — Condition: Sealed

A nice little batch of work by Leon Haywood, featuring four older tracks he produced or performed, and four then new numbers from his 80s period. Includes "She's A Bad Mama Jama", "Tenderoni", "Don't Push, Don't Force It", "I Want To Do Something Freaky To You", "Keep It In The Family" and "It's Got To Be Mellow".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Shrinkwrap is a bit aged.)

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.

Quincy Jones

Dollar ($)
Reprise, 1972. Very Good+
One of Quincy Jones' best soundtracks of the 70s – filled with some great slick electric funky crime tracks, perfectly played by LA jazzers that include Clare Fischer, Paul Humphrey, Arthur Adams, David T Walker, Milt Holland, and Jerome Richardson. A few cuts feature vocals by Little ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
Pretty straight club tracks – recorded with a style that reminds us of some of the European groups coming out of Germany and France at the time, and with some electronic touches that show a vague hint of Giorgio Moroder. Tracks are long, and titles include "Let The Music Play", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Rawls

Soulin'
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
One of the best albums that Lou Rawls cut with the team of HB Barnum and David Axelrod – that incredible duo who made some of his 60s Capitol albums so great! The style here is wonderful – upbeat grooves from Barnum – who brings more soul into Lou's music than before – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prince

Purple Rain
Warner, 1984. Near Mint-
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly ... LP, Vinyl record album
De-Lite, 1978. Very Good+
A collection of disco or disco-ish groovers from the legendary De-Lite label – including "Dancin", "Dreaming A Dream", "Foxy Lady", and "Every Beat Of My Heart", all by Crown Heights Affair, plus "Open Sesame" by Kool & The Gang and "M ... LP, Vinyl record album
T Neck, Late 70s. Very Good+
Here's the side of 70s Isleys that we like the best – the mellow side! This tasty little collection features some hits by the group, but the best part about it is that it's got a focus on some of the more soulful ballads and laidback material, with less of the harder funky stuff. Tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1955. Very Good+
One of the best Kenton LPs ever, and one that really shows the band's beautiful blend of avant garde playing with a swinging jazz sensibility. A 12" LP release of two 10" albums – one showcasing the arranging style of Bill Russo, the other of Bill Holman. Both sides are excellent, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

Gula Matari
A&M, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
A real step forward for Quincy Jones – a record that really shows the jazzman moving into sophisticated new territory – a sound that's just right for the CTI generation! The album's got a vibe that's a bit similar to Quincy's Walking In Space album, but it's a lot deeper too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Andre Previn

Fortune Cookiese
United Artists, 1966. Very Good+
A pretty nice Andre Previn soundtrack for this late Billy Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone

Red Tent
Paramount, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Kind of a mellow Morricone soundtrack – written for this weird balloon film that starred Sean Connery! Bruno Nicolai conducted, and the whole thing's fairly orchestral – with strings and voices coming in and out – but overall, there's still a wonderfully Morricone-esque quality ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Zawinul

Zawinul
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+
A beautiful fusion of Joe Zawinul's roots in the groups of Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley – a set with some of the far-reaching jazz ideas of the former, and much of the soulful subtleties of the latter! The album features Joe on electric piano throughout, playing alongside Herbie ... LP, Vinyl record album
