Tyrone Davis

LP (Item 46592) High Rise, 1982 — Condition: Sealed

Later work by Tyrone, but an excellent album of smooth modern soul tunes that builds off his strong work for Columbia! The album features a sublime stepper called "Are You Serious" – a great track that easily ranks with Tyrone's best work from later years – and the rest of the album's filled with other smoothly soulful tracks that show Tyrone at his best. Titles include "Overdue", "A Little Bit Of Lovin", "Let Me Be The One", "Where Did We Lose", and "You've Got To Save Me".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed, with hype sticker.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Can't You Tell It's Me
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+
Fantastic mellow soul from Tyrone Davis – a great reminder that his vocals were still some of the burningest in 70s soul – sounding especially great in a record like this! Side one of the album's especially great – an all-mellow side that almost acts like some mini-suite of love ... LP, Vinyl record album
King, 1967. Good
Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level! Trouble Man is a heck of a wonderful surprise from an artist that most folks really only knew as a singer – a fantastically funky blacksploitation soundtrack, conceived and ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1978. Very Good
Jeffrey Osborne's really emerging strongly here in the mellow soul mode – especially on the album's two great ballad cuts, "Concentrate On You" and "We Both Deserve Each Other", both of which are smooth mellow steppers with a modern soul approach that's slightly less ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mary Jane Girls

Only Four You
Motown, 1985. Very Good
A lasting classic from the funky female foursome who were one of the biggest acts on Motown in the mid-80s – working here with super tight production and arrangements from Rick James – who also wrote all the songs on the record too! The girls' look is a bit dated, but their sound has ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family Stone

Sly & The Family Stone Greatest Hits
Epic, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
Almost a "greatest hits" of greatest hits albums – one of those collections that almost sold more copies than all the full albums by the artist – forever earning Sly & The Family Stone a place in record collections around the globe! All the hits are here, laid out back to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Let's Get It On
Motown, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
An amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Karen Pree

Karen Pree
MCA, 1977. Near Mint-
We only know Karen from this one album, but she's got a heck of a nice voice – one with a full range and jazzy richness that should have made her a much bigger star. There's traces here of the jazzy 70s pop of Joni Mitchell or Maria Muldaur – although the album itself is produced with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chambers Brothers

Unbonded
Avco, 1973. Near Mint-
A sweet 70s session from The Chambers Brothers – one that's more electric and less rootsy than before, and which gets some nice pop soul arrangements from Tony Camillo! Camillo brings in a compressed groove that could almost get the group on the radio – losing the folksy and rock-ish ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers

George Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good
Some of jazz's most sensitive artists get together in a lyrical set of light-handed ditties. Shearing's piano is a surprisingly nice complement to the vibes/bass/guitar sound of The Montgomery Brothers – and the group is augmented by some nice Latin percussion. Tracks are short, and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella At Duke's Place
Verve, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
A beautiful classic from mid 60s Verve – and the kind of a session that we wouldn't have expected to come off so well! In a style they were using with older artists at the time, Verve brought Ella and Duke into the studio together – with Duke's band and compositions providing the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Westminster, 1956. Very Good+
Mindblowing work from the duo of Ferrante & Teicher – a set that's filled with odd experiments, prepared piano techniques, and a lot more weird sounds than their straighter pop albums of the 60s! This one's really got a feel that lives up to the space age cover – an otherworldly ... LP, Vinyl record album
