Storm At Sunup

LP (Item 468612) A&M, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+
Massive 70s magic from Gino Vannelli – a record that's far better than you'd think from Gino's cheesy look on the cover! During this stretch, Gino and brother Joe Vannelli found a wonderful place for themselves amidst a variety of contemporary modes – certainly pop, but also touched with some soulful overtones too – and usually done with some surprisingly clever touches on instrumentation and production that often gave their tunes a bit more electricity and flanged-out warmth than most of their contemporaries. We're not saying that Gino's as timeless as Steely Dan, but there's honestly a real appeal from that camp going on here – one that sounds better and better as time goes by! Titles include "Father & Son", "Where Am I Going", "Mama Coco", "Keep On Walking", "Storm At Sunup", and "Love Is A Night".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Gino Vannelli

Brother To Brother
A&M, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
A really standout bit of blue-eyed soul from Gino Vannelli – the kind of record that shouldn't be so great, but really holds up well over the years! The style is tight and studio-oriented – somewhere in the mode of Bobby Caldwell and some of Gino's other cross-over contemporaries ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gino Vannelli

Powerful People
A&M, 1974. Near Mint-
A real classic from the 70s AM soft rock/soul scene – and a record that's surprisingly rewarding this many years later! Gino's working here in territory that's a bit similar to contemporaries like Paul Williams or Nick DeCaro – material that's well-penned, softly sung, and produced ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert

Rise
A&M, 1979. Near Mint-
A whole new level of genius for Herb Alpert – a record that's light years away from his earlier work with the Tijuana Brass, and which has the trumpeter stepping strongly into the world of smooth jazzy fusion! The title track here went platinum the minute it was released – and became ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic Starr

Brilliance
A&M, 1982. Near Mint-
The title's certainly right on this one – because Atlantic Starr serve up a really brilliant blend of electro funk and mainstream soul – balanced with that near-perfect sound that made them one of the best groups of their generation! Despite the size of the combo, the sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic Starr

Straight To The Point
A&M, 1980. Very Good
Atlantic Starr definitely get straight to the point on this set – bursting out strongly with an upbeat groove from the very first note – all produced to perfection by maestro Bobby Eli, in the same manner as some of his other great late 70s work for other artists! The group's a big one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeffrey Osborne

Emotional
A&M, 1986. Near Mint-
Titles include "We Belong To Love", "Soweto", "You Should Be Mine", "Emotional", "A Second Chance", and "Love's Not Ready". LP, Vinyl record album

LTD

Shine On
A&M, 1980. Very Good+
Massively solid boogie work from Jeffrey Osborne and LTD – still grooving beautifully at the end of the 70s, and working here with top-shelf production from Bobby Martin! The set's got that buoyant LTD groove that was a perfect foil for Osborne's soaring vocals – a sound that never ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry White

Man Is Back!
A&M, 1989. Very Good+
The title's got it right – because the Man is definitely back, although in a completely different way than before! Barry White works here in a setting that's nice and lean – those soul changes that came about during them more electric 80s years, but also given that start-of-90s spin ... 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

Mother, Jugs, & Speed
A&M, 1976. Near Mint-
An all-star soundtrack to this comedy film from the 70s – starring Raquel Welch, Bill Cosby, and a very young Harvey Keitel! Most of the tracks on the set are from other A&M albums, but there's a few tunes that are original to the set – including the vocal track "No Love ... LP, Vinyl record album
