Wright Back At You

LP (Item 436278) Epic, 1983 — Condition: Very Good+

Betty Wright looks a lot different on the cover than during her early Alston Records years – and she sounds a lot different here, too – but in a way that really has the soul singer stretching out her wings! Most of the record was handled by Marlon Jackson – of Jacksons fame – and the sound is a mix of smooth modern soul groovers and a few more upbeat numbers that really push Wright's vocals in a great way! A few numbers here are definitely hitting that crossover mode that CBS was using with Denise Williams, Cheryl Lynn, and a few of its other soul singers at the time – but the best numbers are deeper, more mellow, and have a warmly sophisticated mode that really gets Betty past the rougher moments of her youth, and takes her into a more adult territory that we really like. These tracks include "Special Love", "I Promise You", "Show Me", and "She's Older Now" – alongside other numbers that include "Burning Desire", "Be Your Friend", and "Live Love Rejoice".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Epic, 1979. Near Mint- 3LPs
An odd little album in which Sly's classic funky tunes are remixed and extended by John Luongo – ostensibly for play on the dancefloors of the late 70s.

Epic, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
Hard to find a stronger early album by Sly – as this one has him still funking hard, but also getting his soul bag together a bit more, hitting some really righteous vibes that mix together politics and partying in an incredibly seductive way.

Ju-Par, 1976. Near Mint-
A nice little album from the enigmatic Sly Slick & Wicked – a soul trio who recorded for James Brown on the People label, but who are probably best known for this one-off album on Ju-Par!
