Man Who Invented Soul

LP (Item 417951) RCA, 1968 — Condition: Very Good

A posthumous collection of material that Sam recorded for RCA before his untimely death – not really a greatest hits collection, but a lot better than the usual "house cleaning" type of record that gets issued in this sort of situation. 11 tracks in all, including "Blowin' In The Wind", "(Somebody) Ease My Troublin' Mind", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out", "Danny Boy", "The Great Pretender", "Send Me Some Lovin'", "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More", "Falling In Love", "Tain't Nobody's Business If I Do", "Willow Weep For Me" and "Try A Little Love".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a cut corner and light wear.)

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.

Jose Feliciano

Just Wanna Rock N Roll
RCA, 1975. Sealed
A bit of the rock n roll you might expect from the title, but an album that's still also very firmly in the best spirit of Jose Feliciano's early 70s classics for RCA! The title element seems to come through in stronger use of electric guitar than before – which makes for less of Jose's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maurice Starr

Flaming Starr
RCA, 1980. Near Mint-
A killer debut set from Maurice Starr – probably best known for his later efforts as a talent scout and producer, but a surprisingly great soul artist on his own! As you might guess from the spacey jumpsuit on the cover, there's a nice dose of early 80s funk in the set – further ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
An overlooked funky classic from Chocolate Milk – and a set that still preserves the tight grooves of the group's earliest work! Allan Toussaint is still on hand this time around to help with both production and songwriting – and his touches can definitely be felt on the record – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zulema

RSVP
RCA, 1975. Near Mint-
Sweet 70s soul from Zulema – a mixture of sweet ballads and more full-on soul numbers that have an uptempo pop groove. Carl L Maults-By arranged and produced the album – and tracks include "What Kind Of Person Are You", "Coins In A Bottle", "You're So ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diana Ross

Swept Away
RCA, 1984. Near Mint- Gatefold
A surprising hit for Diana Ross – a record that really helped the singer shine brightly in the 80s, but with a vibe that's quite different than her years at Motown! The album's got plenty of star power on board – production work from Arthur Baker, Richard Perry, Daryl Hall, Lionel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson Pickett

Miz Lena's Boy
RCA, 1973. Near Mint-
Surprisingly nice work from Wilson Pickett – hard and a bit funky, with a sound that's almost stronger than his late work for Atlantic! The album was co-arranged with Brad Shapiro – who was one of the best southern soul talents of the time, and really brings out the best in Wilson's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Village People

Renaissance
RCA, 1981. Near Mint-

Grey & Hanks

You Fooled Me
RCA, 1978. Very Good
A great little debut album from the team of Len Ron Hanks and Zane Grey – songwriters who'd scored earlier in the 70s with tracks for Jerry Butler and LTD, but who also strike up a pretty strong groove on their own! The pair are from Chicago, but are recording in LA – and their sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zulema

Zulema (RCA)
RCA, 1975. Very Good+
The first RCA album from Zulema – one of the more unusual 70s female soul artists! Zulema plays keyboards, and arranged all the cuts – in a small combo with Jerome Owens on guitar, Kevin Jordan on bass, Howard Wyeth on drums, and Anderson Waldon on percussion. Titles include "Stan ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1970. Very Good+
A sweet solo set from Sonny Til – recording here a long way from The Orioles, but really sounding great on his own! The album's got a much deeper soul feel than before – great lead vocals from Sonny, over backings from Bert DeCoteaux and Joe James – produced beautifully by Stroud ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chic

C'est Chic
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
A massive set from the legendary Chic – and a set that has the dancefloor combo coming down perfectly throughout! Riffing Nile Rodgers guitars really make the tunes cook – as does the superb production – and although the record played plenty in discos and radios of the mainstream ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Let's Get It On
Motown, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
An amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his ...
