Best Of Dee Clark

LP (Item 434358) Vee Jay, Early 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Classic Chicago soul from the great Dee Clark – one of the most versatile vocalists ever to work for Vee Jay Records, as you'll hear on this set! Dee could be sweet one minute, rocking the next – and had a great vocal range that was always used well on the range of material he sung. Titles include a fair number of originals by Clark – including "Raindrops", "Nobody But You", "If It Wasn't For Love", and "When I'll Call On You" – plus the tracks "Hey Little Girl", "Your Friends", "You're Lookin Good", and "How About That". (Suite Beat pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

Flying Start
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Not the band's first album – as you might think from the "start" in the title – but a classic batch of jazzy, funky, and soulful grooves from The Blackbyrds – one of those combos that few groups could match back in the 70s! The set's got a beautifully put-together feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1974. Very Good
A really bold step forward for Norman Connors – a set that's still got all the spiritual jazz elements of his roots, but which also adds in some more soul and funk elements too!

Volt, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Fantastic early work from The Dramatics – an amazing blend of sweet soul harmony vocals, Memphis soul production, and some other-worldly songwriting that far surpasses later work of the group.

United Artists, 1972. Very Good-
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time!

Parkway, 1963. Good+
Some of the greatest harmonies on the Philly scene of the early 60s – sung by a group who really helped soul music find a new sort of sophistication at the time!
