Rose Brothers

LP (Item 41754) Muscle Shoals Sound, 1985 — Condition: Very Good
Also available
Rose Brothers — Rose Brothers ... CD 13.99

Modern Muscle Shoals material from The Rose Brothers – a male quartet with one foot in an older harmony soul mode, and the other firmly set into the bigger modes of the 80s! Mellower moments mix with electro elements on this debut album – with a vibe that's almost more east coast than Alabama, but which still retains a bit of a deeper soul vibe on the laidback numbers and ballads. Jimmy Lewis and Rich Cason produced – and Cason handled arrangements – on titles that include "I Get Off On You", "The Edge Of Goodbye", "Burglar", "One More Time", "War Zone", and "Freeky Lover" – and the Rick James-styled groover "Wall To Wall Freaks".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Larks

Jerk
Money, Early 60s. Very Good+
Don Julian's early band lays down a tight set of hard uptempo soul cuts, nearly all of them with a "jerk" groove to them. "The Jerk" was the big hit off of here, but we're huge fans of "Slauson Shuffle (pts 1 & 2)", a very groovy track about a very groovy street ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers

Bustin' Loose
Source, 1979. Very Good
Chuck Brown and his Soul Searchers group are past the arch jazzy funk of their days on Sussex Records – and they're heading more towards that ensemble sound that would drive the DC Go Go scene in the early 80s. The formula is heard to best effect on the big hit "Bustin Loose", an ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown

People
Polydor, 1980. Very Good
Late 70s James, and a little bit more up-tempo and clubby funky, but still some decent stuff from The Godfather. Includes "Don't Stop the Funk", "Let the Funk Flow", "Stone Cold Drag", and "Are We Really Dancing". LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & Fire

Last Days & Time
Columbia, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Earth Wind & Fire's first album for Columbia Records – the start of a really legendary run during the 70s! The sound here is a bit tighter than their first two for Warner Brothers – a groove that has funk and soul taking a bit more precedence over the jazz of their roots – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Younghearts

All About Love
ABC, 1977. Very Good
The last record that we've ever found by this excellent sweet soul group – and one that continues the strong tradition of modern group soul begun on their 20th Century albums. The sound is nice and smooth, and the vocals come together nicely on nearly every track. Cuts include "Sho'nuff ... LP, Vinyl record album

Breakwater

Breakwater
Arista, 1978. Very Good
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! This initial offering from Breakwater is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest ... LP, Vinyl record album
De-Lite, 1975. Very Good
Nice compilation of some of Kool & The Gang's best early funk tracks for De-Lite. The record's got lots of nice groovers, including "Soul Vibrations", "Music is the Message", "Rated X", "Jungle Boogie", "Hollywood Swinging", "Funky ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Jarreau

We Got By
Warner, 1975. Very Good
Al's first major label record – cut when he was an emerging soul jazz vocalist, but before he'd gone totally over the top in super-slick hit mode. The album's got a good 70s LA jazzy backing, with guests like Dave Grusin, Arthur Adams, and Larry Bunker keeping the music moving at a nice pace. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lorez Alexandria

Didn't We
Pzazz, Late 60s. Very Good+
Obscure album by Lorez, with a mix of jazz and pop stuff, and arrangements (mostly) by pianist Ronell Bright. Bright plays in the group backing Lorez, as does the great tenor player Teddy Edwards. The legendary Paul Gayten produced, and the track list includes "Play Me The Blues", " ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1993. Sealed
Titles include "No Song III", "Between Me & You Kid", "Six Two One", "Underide", "Deception Pass", "Make It Now Again", and "In The Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Any Number Can Win
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sessions like this are proof that Jimmy was one of the most fantastic organ players ever – as his work with large arrangements (supplied here by Claus Ogerman) always seems to groove better than his work with small combos. His sound is impeccable, and he soars ahead of the rest of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
