Love Somebody Today

LP (Item 468102) Cotillion, 1980 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A crisp, but funky set from Sister Sledge – produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of Chic, who also lead the studio band – tight funky soul grooves all the way! After the dizzying heights of We Are Family, there might have been nowhere to go but down commercially, but Love Somebody Today sounds great to our ears. It's really all about an in the pocket groove this time out, without any pop disco cliches but with the same exuberant charms and killer group vocals – and loads of funky dancefloor soul. Sweet! Titles include "Got To Love Somebody", "You Looked Around", "I'm A Good Girl", "Easy Street", "Reach Your Peak", "Pretty Baby", "How To Love" and "Let's Go On Vacation". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Atco, 1983. Very Good
A late effort from Sister Sledge – a sparkling batch of pop funk and smoothed out grooves – produced by George Duke! Bet Cha Say That To All The Girls didn't get over in the mainstream in the way that their late 70s work got over, but it's got excellent harmonies and powerhouse lead ... LP, Vinyl record album
In The Purest Form
Cotillion, 1979. Very Good
Mass Production are definitely in their purest form here – stepping forward as one of the best soul acts in the Cotillion Records roster at the end of the 70s – and maybe one of the hippest modern funk ensembles of the time! These guys have a way of making things sound nice and lean, ... LP, Vinyl record album
New Era
Cotillion, 1971. Very Good
Smooth soulful instrumentals by a man who's most often hidden in the background credits as an arranger. He gets help on this one from funky 70's studio players, like Eric Gale, Richard Tee, Jimmy Johnson, and others. Tracks include "Magic Moments", "Thank You Falletin Me Be Mice ...

Home Style
Cotillion, 1970. Very Good+
Wonderful work from Brook Benton – and the kind of record that always gets overlooked in discussions of southern soul, but which is proof that Benton's always been a key force in the genre! Brook virtually invented the style with his earlier country soul recordings – and by the time of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cotillion, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
Cerrone's definitely got the Golden Touch here – grooving long and strong, with that mix of cosmic club and warmer disco that made his 70s music so great! The album's a masterpiece all the way through – driven by great percussion from the maestro, and swirled up into a heavenly mix at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Starting All Over
Cotillion, 1977. Very Good
A soaring solo effort from the great Philippe Wynne – a vocalist who's probably best known for his hit 70s work with The Spinners, but one who also turns out to be a hell of talent on his own! Wynne's sweet raspy vocals click into place right from the start – stretching out over a host ... LP, Vinyl record album
It's About Time
Cotillion, 1976. Near Mint-
The Impressions first album for Cotillion, cut after a great 70s run on Curtom – but one that's done with a sound that still carries on the groove nicely! The more righteous tones of the earlier work are shaken loose a bit, to be replaced by a fuller approach to the music built from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Woman In My Life
Cotillion, 1982. Near Mint-
Smooth grooving soul from Stevie Woods – the second of 3 albums he made with producer Jack White for Cotillion – all of them sweet, unfussy and very crafted records that should have laid the groundwork for a long career! Woman In My Life has a few more delicate, romantic jams than its ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1975. Very Good
A great mid period sleeper from Barry White – and an album that's not as hit-heavy as his other work from the time, but still equally nice! The album's got a mellower groove than some of Barry's albums of the time – a laidback approach that's going more for an overall sound, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album
LJ's Love Suite
AVI, 1979. Near Mint-
Sexy soul magic from LJ Johnson – not to be confused with ex-Dramatic LJ Reynolds, but a great singer in his own right! LJ's got a sweet vocal approach that's almost that you'd hear from earlier years, on east coast vocal group records – but here, he's working in a fuller, richer mode ... 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
Polydor (Japan), 1972. Near Mint-
A beautiful live set from 1972 – and a very unique album from Roy Ayers' Polydor years! The album originally was never issued in the US – clearly done for a hipper European market at the time – and it's got more of a jazz vibe than some of Roy's other work on Polydor, with sounds ...
