Walk Tall

LP (Item 450468) Jewel, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A great gospel group with a really strong deep soul sound – one that comes from some tremendously full harmonies by the male members of this hip quintet! The group may get their name from Brooklyn, but the sound here is much more in the southern soul mode of the Jewel label on which the album was issue – a rolling, rootsy groove that sounds like something coming out of Memphis in the 60s. The group pay tribute to their secular contemporaries with a remake of the Luther Ingram hit – done as "If Loving God Is Wrong (I Don't Want To Be Right)" – and other tunes include "God Specializes", "Trying To Get Home", "Once A Day", "Serving The Lord", "On The Battlefield", and "Soldier's Prayer".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner and some aging.)

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.

Hip Hug-Her
Stax, 1967. Very Good+
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, ... LP, Vinyl record album
