Slewfoot

LP (Item 4685) Buddah, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

A really bold step forward for Norman Connors – a set that's still got all the spiritual jazz elements of his roots, but which also adds in some more soul and funk elements too! Jean Carn delivers some wonderful vocals on the record – at a level that's much more like her early Black Jazz recordings with Doug Carn, than her later Philly soul sides – and Connors heads up a killer instrumental group that features reeds from Hubert Laws, Carlos Garnett, and Gary Bartz – plus wicked keyboards from Reggie Lucas and percussion from Dom Um Romao too! The fusion players are all super-sharp – and really make the whole album crackle wonderfully throughout – on a mix of instrumental and vocal tracks that include "Mother Of The Future", "Slew Foot", "Dreams", "Chuka", "Back On The Street", and "Jump Street".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a super small promo notch and bottom center seam splitting, and indentation on the cover from pen writing.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Gladys Knight & The Pips

2nd Anniversary
Buddah, 1975. Very Good
The second anniversary of Gladys Knight & The Pips on Buddah Records – and an album that really shows the new level of depth the group were able to hit at the label! A key factor on the album is work by Eugene McDaniels – who produced the record, and wrote a good number of tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Osibisa

Superfly TNT
Buddah, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Some nice heavy Afro-funk grooves, courtesy of Osibisa, for this follow-up score to the original Superfly! The sound of the music is quite different than Curtis Mayfield's famous soundtrack – and there's lots of heavy bass and percussion, plus some additional arrangements by Michael Gibbs. ...

Buddah, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great stuff from this legendary Chicago soul group! Although the band was trying to break out of their sweeter image as a young group (the cover has them looking pretty dope and wearing these wild pimpin' outfits), they're still pretty darn sweet and soulful here, with only a hint of the later ...

Michael Henderson

In The Night Time
Buddah/Arista, 1978. Sealed
Smooth mellow soul by Michael Henderson – taking up where he left off with his work with Norman Connors, and proving that he was an even better vocalist than bassist. The overall sound of this one's perhaps a bit slicker than his first 2 albums on Buddah – but there's still some strong ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chocolate City, 1975. Very Good
Early Cameo at their best – tight, funky, and totally out of sight! The groove here is very different than their 80s work – and the group have this amazing way of focusing all their energy down on the rhythm together, and snapping things along with a really unique approach to funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bohannon

Insides Out
Dakar, 1974. Very Good
A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual! Although most of Bohannon's work from the time is up-tempo and funky, side two of this album has some amazing slow spacey cuts – done with a drum sound that's still quite hard, but just slower than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Curtom, 1978. Very Good
The standout classic from Curtom disco diva Linda Clifford – and an album that showed that Chicago could rival Philly in the clubby groove department! Linda has a proud presence that really matches that of her better-known sisters in the City Of Brotherly Love – and she's singing here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Mayfield

Got To Find A Way
Curtom, 1974. Very Good
A great album that's often overlooked amidst the flurry of early 70's releases on Curtom, but which stands as one of Mayfield's greatest from the 70s! In fact, we'd say that the album's one that we enjoy putting on more than most – because the songs are less familiar, and not nearly as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1978. Very Good
Excellent work from Frankie Beverly and Maze! The record is one of the group's best, and has a wonderful mellow groove that's totally on the money on nearly every cut – a mature, sophisticated approach to soul that really made Maze a standout act at the end of the 70s! There's a slight ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gap Band

Gap Band IV
Total Experience, 1982. Very Good Gatefold
Perhaps the ultimate album for The Gap Band – and sure, it was a hit, but the record still sounds great today, and the constant sampling of some of the record has kept it fresh in the crates for years and years! The band have lost the heavier funk sound of earlier years, and working in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Delfonics

Delfonics
Philly Groove, 1970. Very Good
The third album in an amazing early run from The Delfonics – the kind of work that set a whole new standard for group soul in the 70s! A number of the tracks here had already risen to fame before the album's release as singles – and these are mixed with some additional tracks that are ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1957. Very Good
Candido's firey conga is backed by a tight jazz group conducted by Ernie Wilkins. The players include Art Farmer, Jimmy Cleveland, Hank Jones, and Ernie Royal, and although they don't get to solo much, they play nice and hard, and give Candido great support in the background. Tracks include " ... LP, Vinyl record album
