Get In Touch

LP (Item 44767) RCA, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Harmony soul, retooled for the discos – as most of the tracks on this self-produced set feature strident grooves that must have been aimed at the clubs. The sound's pretty good overall, though, thanks to some great vocals. Luther Vandross is listed in the vocal credits – although we don't have any idea how much of the singing he actually participated in – and there's definitely a Luther-like approach to the best tracks. Titles include "Move On Up", "Take A Chance, Dance", "Get In Touch", "Celebrate", "Children Of The Discos", and "Just Because I'm Yours".  © 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.

Early early early work by The Isley Brothers – an album built around their huge rock and roll hit "Shout" – one of those numbers you've heard a million times, in a million versions, and which you've probably forgotten came from the first trio of Isleys way back before they ...

RCA, 1974. Very Good
Hard funky soul from The New Birth – still sounding pretty raw at this point, and with that funky group ensemble feel that you'll hear on their best early albums!

Phase Two
RCA, 1972. Very Good-
Probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record. The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Get On Your Mark
RCA, Early 80s. Near Mint-
A sweet bit of electro soul from the 80s – served up here by a trio who are heavy on keyboard sounds, but also get some warmer elements from an array of other musicians who help out on the set!

Cold, hard, and funky!

Includes the incredible "Afro Strut" – worth the ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
A sublime one from Jose! The record pushes past the easy Latin pop style of the late 60s, and features Jose working through hip rock tunes – both of his own creation, and by writers like Elton John and Cat Stevens. The real highlight of the album is an incredible reading of "Wild ... LP, Vinyl record album
Here 'Tis
RCA, 1972. Very Good+
A tremendous little record from Love Peace & Happiness – a great vocal trio from the early 70s, and one who really shine with this overlooked gem for RCA!
