Modern Sounds Of The Orioles

LP (Item 45656) Charlie Parker, 1962 — Condition: Near Mint-

A later album by this famous 50s doo wop group, collecting some singles in a sort of hits package – with their sound updated into more of a 60s harmony groove! Mundell Lowe arranged the set and also plays guitar in the small backing combo – and Sonny Til and group do an excellent job on the harmonies with tracks like "I Miss You So", "Back To The Chapel Again", "Hey Little Woman", "The Wobble", "Write & Tell Me Why", and "Don't Mess Around With My Love".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono yellow label pressing.)

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.

Blue Magic

Welcome Back
Capitol, 1981. Near Mint-
A wonderful album – one of the group's best! The album was a "comeback" effort – but it's still got stone Philly production from Norman Harris, with a sound that's right up their with their best Atco sides from the mid 70s. In fact, the harmonies are even better than before, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Floaters

Floaters
ABC, 1977. Near Mint-
Their classic, with the great long version of "Float On", which is a monster soul cut that stands tall with steppers and rappers alike. It's probably the best track they ever did, and it's all here in a version that's nearly 12 minutes long – with loads of samples that you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Mayfield

Back To The World
Curtom, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover! The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Adventures In Paradise
Epic, 1975. Very Good
Maybe our favorite-ever album from Minnie Riperton during the 70s – a sweet, smooth jazzy gem that really makes some of the best use of her vocals! There's a sophistication here that's a great 70s counterpart to Minnie's earlier work with Charles Stepney – served up here in a very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donny Hathaway

Donny Hathaway Live
Atco, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fred Wesley & The Horny Horns

Blow For Me, A Toot To You
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good
After Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker came head to head with James Brown in the mid 70s, they broke off and formed the Horny Horns contingent – a tight funky backing section that's featured on a number of late 70s funk sessions, and which also recorded some extremely nice numbers on their own! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1974. Very Good
Easily our favorite album ever by Ann Peebles – not just for the beathead title track, but also because it seems to be the one record where she brings a bit something extra to the studio! The sound is certainly in the classic Hi Records mode here – thanks to production by Willie ... LP, Vinyl record album
People, 1974. Very Good-
Holy cow! This is the rare promo version of one of the JBs greatest albums! It's got a complete extra song – "Tribute to Disc Jockeys & Radio Stations" – that features James and crew rapping about their favorite black radio DJs around the country. As they list the names ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tom Tom Club

Tom Tom Club
Sire, 1981. Very Good-
The first album by The Tom Tom Club – a group that started out as a side project by Talking Heads members Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz – but which went onto have a surprising life of its own! Like the Talking Heads at the start of the 80s, Tom Tom Club were very open to pulling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ben Sidran

Don't Let Go
Blue Thumb, 1974. Near Mint-
Tight funky jazz from vocalist Ben Sidran – still very much in his best early mode, and playing with a really raw sound overall! Ben's vocals are in that down-home Mose Allison mode, but the real charm is the music – which features funky drums by Clyde Stubblefield, the man responsible ... LP, Vinyl record album

McCoy Tyner

Expansions
Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A really mindblowing session from McCoy Tyner – perfectly titled "Expansions" to showcase the change in his style at the time! The record is one of Tyner's first larger group efforts – and is a brilliant example of the expansion of his talents in the post-Coltrane years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good-
An excellent album recorded during the height of Benny Golson's powers as an arranger and tenor soloist! Benny leads two groups – a quintet and a nontet – both of which feature players that include Art Farmer, Wynton Kelly, Sahib Shihab, Gigi Gryce, and Paul Chambers – working ...
