LP, Vinyl record album

(€1.67 || £1.46 || ¥222) (approx.)

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".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Love Fantasy
Polydor, 1980. Very Good+
One of our favorite Roy Ayers albums of all time – and an overlooked gem from Roy's late 70s years at Polydor! This set's a bit more laidback and less clubby than some other Ayers work of the period – which means it's got this wonderful jazzy groove throughout – a sweet mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album
There's A Riot Goin' On
Epic, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
A wonderful album from Sly and crew – moving way past the straight funk approach of earlier records, into a complicated crossover soul style that's filled with warmth and righteousness.

Hell
Polydor, 1974. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
JB's wildest album, with a crazy cover that shows him running away from the devil, and great gatefold inner photo with him standing amidst a bunch of declarations of "Hell". The record is a double album filled with lots of different styles from James' funky bag. Nicer bits include " ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1980. Very Good
One of the most compelling later albums on Philly International – a killer mix of jazzy numbers that have a very different style than most of the other Philly work at the time! Even though Leon Huff had been banging around in soul music for about 15 years – most famously as half of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
You Send Me
Polydor, 1978. Very Good-
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spiritual Concept
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good
One of the most righteous albums ever issued on the Philadelphia International label – a heavy batch of ensemble funk work, done with the same sort of righteous edge as early albums by Earth Wind & Fire, coupled with the guitar driven energy of the Bar-Kays, and some of the Latinized ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Dutchman, 1974. Near Mint-
A set that wasn't initially conceived as a full album by Gil Scott-Heron – but one that's come to be an essential part of his catalog, thanks to the always-relevant title theme! The album's actually a classic collection of work from the early years of Gil Scott-Heron at the Flying Dutchman ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kenny Nolan
20th Century, 1977. Very Good
Not necessarily a soul LP, but a nice bit of 70's pop by the man who wrote a number of big soul hits. Kenny produced and sings, and the LP includes "Wakin Up To Love", "Love's Grown Deep", and "I Like Dreamin". LP, Vinyl record album
Gratitude
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Great stuff! Although a live album, Gratitude is one of Earth Wind & Fire's greatest from the mid 70s – a very tight batch of grooves that proves that Maurice White & Co. could play just as well on stage as they could in the studio – and the noise of the crowd going wild is ...

Feeling The Magic
MGM, 1975. Very Good
Great stuff from one of the unsung heroes of 70s soul! The record's a bit rawer than some of Johnny's earlier work – and it's got a sexy cover that puts him more in the camp of Roy Ayers or Leroy Hutson, at least from a visual perspective! The whole album was written and produced by Johnny ... LP, Vinyl record album
Phyllis Hyman
Buddah, 1977. Very Good-
Far and away our favorite album by Phyllis Hyman – her first, and with lots of the same smooth jazzy soul touches you'd find in her work with Norman Connors! Phyllis is still as sophisticated as she is on later albums, but there's a bit freer style to the record – and Phyllis breaks a ... LP, Vinyl record album
