I, Too, Have Seen The Woods

LP (Item 414792) Sire, 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

A later effort from the Kid – still flailing away with a steady, modern calypso pop back beat – and very smooth, ultra-laidback vocal approach! The production is very of of the era, but manages to break free of the over-muffled syncopated drum sound of the time. It's not one of Kid's finest albums, but it certainly has it's charms – with the lightly grooving bass, punching horns and vocals! 11 tracks in all: "Buttermilk Channel", "Part Of My Design", "Agony. . .Ecstasy", "Dancin' At The Baisn Douches", "Cold Wave", "So Far, So Good", "Boxed Out", "Call It A Day" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Kid Creole & The Coconuts

In Praise Of Older Women & Other Crimes
Sire, 1985. Near Mint-
Later work by the one-and-only Kid Creole & The Coconuts – past his prime, but armed with the silly, and still very enjoyable hit "Endicott" – and other nice moments! The sound is cleaner and more streamlined by this point, namely the mid 80s – but the lively horns, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stang, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Quite possibly The Moments' last good album, and a record that has them mixing a bit of funkiness into their usual style of sweet group soul. There's a mix of modern soul with some of the group's older styles – and the harmonies are as great as ever, perhaps more so because the production ... LP, Vinyl record album

Staple Singers

Be What You Are
Stax, 1973. Very Good+
Warmly grooving 70s soul from The Staple Singers – recorded in a fuller Memphis mode that's miles from their gospel roots, but still plenty darn nice! The style here is very much in keeping with the hit Staples mode of the time – righteous, full, but still nice and earthy at the bottom ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good+
The move to Philly International did wonders for Lou's career – and there's no denying that the smooth soul sound of Gamble and Huff worked perfectly with his rich vocal style! The "classy" setting took Lou to a whole new level, while also providing a good force for his still-soulfu ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1977. Very Good+
A great little groover from LTD – and a set that's got everything coming together perfectly in the mix! The set features arrangements from Philly Soul maestro Bobby Martin – who brings together this wonderful blend of styles – funk, smoother soul elements, and the kind of upbeat, ...

Buddah/Vee Jay, Early 70s. Very Good+

Urban Exposure
K-Tel, 1986. Very Good+
A cheapo compilation, but one with some great 80s hip hop hits – all presented in full-length versions too! Tracks include "Get Busy" by Disco Four, "Bassline" by Mantronix, "PSK What Does It Mean" by Schoolly D, "Jam Master Jammin (rmx)" by Run DMC, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Georges Auric

Bonjour Tristesse
RCA, 1958. Very Good+
The great, bracing score to the fantastic Otto Preminger film, with music by Georges Auric, and nice dramatic saxophone passages. Juliette Greco sings the title song in a nice dramatic Frenchy fashion, and the whole thing does great justice to the steamy book by Francoise Sagan. LP, Vinyl record album

James Newton & Anthony Davis

Crystal Texts
Moers (Germany), 1978. Very Good+
Recorded in Amsterdam in 1978 – this record contains four original compositions by pianist Anthony Davis and one by flutist James Newton. Titles include "Pax", "Crystal Texts", "Wayang No. 1", and side two features the song "Someone Inside Her". The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yusef Lateef

Blue Yusef Lateef
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
One of our favorite Atlantic albums by the great Yusef Lateef – an incredible session that has him dipping back into his earlier exotic roots with those great reed styles of the early 60s – yet also hitting a mix of soul and funk like some of his other albums from the time! The sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1961. Very Good
One of the die-cut cover "Stereo Action" series, with a variety of film themes given a wild batchelor pad twist. Tracks include "Colonel Bogey", "Tara's Theme", "The High & The Mighty", and "Song Of The Barefoot Contessa". Not too way out, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
