I Got Love

LP (Item 422829) MCA, 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-

Peggie's definitely got love on this sparkling debut – but even better than that, she's got Jerry Ragovoy helping out on production, arrangement, and composition for most of the tunes – a top-shelf professional approach that makes the whole album sound a lot richer and more unified than most of Blue's contemporaries! Peggie's got one of those voices that could really get into trouble if it wasn't held in check – plenty of soul, but sometimes a tendency to really want to go over the top – so Ragovoy's production really helps give the record a lot of focus, and makes the whole thing sound a lot better than just a small name soul singer being whisked in and out of the studio. Titles include "When You Got A Good Groove Goin", "I Got Love", "I Can't Afford To Pay The Price", "Can't Hold It Back", "It's The End", and "Hold You".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a promo stamp and a bit of pen.)

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.

I Appreciate
MCA, 1984. Sealed

Phyllis Hyman

Living All Alone
Philadelphia International, 1986. Very Good+
Sparkling modern soul from the lovely Phyllis Hyman – and an album that has the singer picking up the wonderfully smooth groove that had become the Philly International sound of the mid 80s.

Later Dennis Coffey, but still with some groovy tracks, even though the production's a bit smoother and a little faster than his early stuff. With "Funk Connection", "Back Home", and "Wings of Fire". The guitar's still out front, and the whole thing's written and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Innervisions
Tamla, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold

The tunes have a ... LP, Vinyl record album
