(Sealed!)

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.

Aretha Franklin

Aretha's Greatest Hits
Atlantic, Late 60s. Very Good
A well-done showcase of Aretha's best early work for Atlantic Records – a collection that really gets at the deepest soul side of her style, and focuses on the transformation of sound that occurred when Franklin moved over to the label from Columbia. The set's overflowing with greatness ... LP, Vinyl record album

Street Fare

Street Fare
Atlantic, 1987. Very Good+
Maybe not as "street" as you might think from the group's name – or from the fake graffiti on the cover – but a pretty nice little mainstream soul album, and one that's almost a precursor to later New Jack sounds to come! The group's a trio – Sandi Alexander, Paul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Vera & Judy Clay

Storybook Children
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
One of the only few albums to ever feature the vocals of Judy Clay – a wonderful deep soul singer who also cut a handful of excellent singles for Stax in the late 60s! Like some of that work – specifically her Stax duets with William Bell – this set really showcases Judy's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dee Dee Bridgewater

Dee Dee Bridgewater (1976)
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Dee Dee Bridgewater's first album as a soul singer – recorded a few years after she first broke on the scene as a righteous jazz vocalist on hip early 70s classics! The sound here is different than the material Bridgewater started with, but still plenty great from a soul perspective – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donal Leace

Donal Leace
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint-
Donal Leace was one of a few hip soul acts that Roberta Flack brought to Atlantic during her strongest period with the label – and he's a soulful folk singer whose work reminds us of certain folksy moments on Flack's first few albums. There's less of a Terry Callier sound than a Tim Hardin ... LP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1960s. Sealed

James Brown

Bodyheat
Polydor, 1976. Very Good
An enduring classic from James Brown – quite possibly the strongest of his late 70s albums, and a record that nicely balances the harder funk of the early part of the decade with a more sophisticated style that almost gets slightly jazzy at times! The vocals are planted strongly at the top ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impressions

Ridin' High
ABC, 1966. Very Good
The title and cover say it all – because The Impressions here are at the top of their game – riding high on a tremendous wave of soul, and soaring forth with a sense of pride and power few other groups could match! Maestro Johnny Pate is on board to handle the arrangements and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impact

Impact
Atco, 1976. Very Good+
Plenty of Impact from this great Philly group – a soaring quartet who harmonize with some great Bobby Eli arrangements – at a level that shines as strongly as the best 70s work by Blue Magic or The Spinners! Impact never broke the big time as strongly, but they're a great group in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
