LP, Vinyl record album


A great little album from Teena Marie – one that's dedicated to the late Minnie Riperton (who'd passed during the previous year), and which is produced by Riperton's husband/collaborator Richard Rudolph. Teena's got more than a few of Minnie's tricks up her sleeve on the best cuts, singing in a smooth sweet soulful style that makes for some of her best vocals on record at the time. Lovely, soulful work from Teena – one of her best! Titles include "Behind The Groove", "Aladdin's Lamp", "Now That I Have You", "Can It Be Love", "Too Many Colors", and "Young Girl In Love". (Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Wild & Peaceful
Motown, 1979. Very Good+
One of the greatest female soul albums of the end of the 70s – and the bold-voiced debut of the lovely Teena Marie! Even on this first album, Teena's got a depth that goes way beyond most of her contemporaries – a brashness that hits hard on the funkier cuts on the record, but also a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Power
Gordy, 1980. Very Good
Titles include "Power", "Struck By Lightning", "How Can I Resist Your Love", "I'm Coming Home", "Can't You See Sweet Thing", and "Go For It". LP, Vinyl record album
Cold Blooded
Gordy, 1983. Very Good+ Gatefold
Another stone winner from Rick James' early 80s run for Motown – a set that follows strongly on territory opened up by previous records – especially that bass-heavy approach to funk! The record's maybe not as stone classic as others, but still is way tighter and more put-together than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Solid Rock
Gordy, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
A masterful album of righteous trippy soul – recorded during the height of the Temptations' strong association with Norman Whitfield! The record has more than a few political/social conscience songs – like "Take A Look Around", "Stop The War Now", and "Superstar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers
Gordy, 1968. Very Good
One of the best records Motown ever put out, and a killer soul record that's far better than any of Bobby Taylor's other LPs. The record has a classic northern soul groove played by The Vancouvers, Bobby's tight little integrated soul band – and the record just drips with soul and emotion! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Undisputed Truth
Gordy, 1971. Very Good+
A perfect example groove that got The Undisputed Truth big hit fame in the early 70s – sort of a rumbling funk, full-on approach, using male/female vocals in kind of a "wall of soul" approach. Includes the huge hit "Smiling Faces Sometimes", plus lots of covers of cool ... LP, Vinyl record album
Curtis
Curtom, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
Curtis Mayfield's first solo album after leaving the Impressions, and it's a firey album of political soul that shows just how much he was holding back when he was with the group. The tracks are longer, angrier, more experimental, and a lot more funky. Standout tracks include "If There's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Imaginations
20th Century, Mid 70s. Very Good
An excellent group soul from Chicago – and no wonder, since The Imaginations were previously Brighter Side Of Darknes, a sublime falsetto harmony group who had a huge hit in 1972 with "Love Jones". This record's very much in the vein of that song – but also features a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Taylor Made Soul
Gordy, 1969. Very Good+
Although Bobby Taylor's best remembered for his raw soul sides recorded with The Vancouvers, this solo album, recorded after his one with that group, is still a pretty nice batch of tracks, with a sound that's a lot deeper than some of the other Motown albums of the time. The set's got a very nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1974. Sealed
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ninety Day Cycle People
ABC, 1974. Very Good+
Wild work by Charles Wright – recorded in the post-103rd Street Rhythm Band years, with a really trippy sound! The album's got a few really messed up numbers – ones that have Charles ranting and grooving with incredible energy, especially on the cuts "90 Day Cycle People" and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gene Chandler Situation
Mercury, 1970. Sealed
Killer stuff from Gene! After recording a few sadly overlooked albums for Brunwsick, Gene hit big big big with this killer record on Mercury! The record virtually defines the Chicago soul sound of the late 60s – with arrangements by Tom Tom, production by Gene, and a great loping soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
