Little Love

LP (Item 46949) Salsoul, 1982 — Condition: Used
(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

The image on the cover is a great summation of the Aurra magic – a sweet blend of male and female vocals with plenty of soul – woven together in ways that are quite different from more cliched duet modes of earlier years! The grooves are at the center of the record – set out strongly by producer/arranger Stephen Washington, with loads of great basslines at the core! Yet it's the vocals that really make the record sparkle – work by Starleana Young and Curt Jones – both very individual singers who have a way of coming together here with a very fresh feel! Studio magic allows both to provide backup as well as lead vocals – and the album's filled with great groovers that include "It's You", "Make Up Your Mind", "A Little Love", "In My Arms", "Still Free", and "Checking You Out". (Cover has some wear & a cutout notch.)  © 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.

Anikana-o
Salsoul, 1974/1978. Very Good+
Early work by Kongas – recorded in France in the mid 70's, but released by Salsoul in the US in 1978. The group have an Afro Funk approach, filtered through more of a disco groove – long tracks with percussion and tribal touches, very rhythmically grooving all the way through. The ...

Salsoul Orchestra (1st LP)
Salsoul, 1975. Very Good-
The soaring debut of one of the greatest groups of the disco era – and one that would go onto be the sound of Salsoul Records too! The large mostly-instrumental ensemble is headed up by Vince Montana – who brings plenty of Philly disco touches into play with the group's wonderful blend ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ten Percent
Salsoul, 1976. Near Mint-
A wonderful album – one of those underground classics that seems to show up in everyone's record collection, even though it was never a huge chart hit. Double Exposure are part of the "second wave" of East Coast vocal groups – and like their contemporaries, they mix the sweet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Salsoul, 1981. Very Good
That's quite a cover on the front – and the record more than lives up to the promise of the photo and the cover – thanks to some funky club grooves from the legendary Tommy Stewart! You might know Tommy for his own rare album – or for his underground work on the Atlanta scene of ... 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
Booker T Set
Stax, 1969. Very Good
Later work from Booker T and crew – an album that always gets lost in the shuffle, but which also includes lots of great moments, and a bit more funk than in earlier years! The rhythm section's loosening up a bit on the set – led by the mighty Al Jackson, and working past that tight ... LP, Vinyl record album
Think About It
Chimneyville/Atco, 1973. Very Good
An excellent album from King Floyd – possibly his best, and proof that the harder side of southern soul sound was still alive and well in the 70s! The record was one of the first few big ones to come out of the Malaco studios in Jackson – which would soon become one of the biggest hubs ... LP, Vinyl record album
Secret Omen
Chocolate City, 1979. Very Good
A sweet stunner from Cameo – a set that's got the group working with an even tighter, more on the money sound than before – yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial! These guys were one of the first to push the big ensemble funk sound into a leaner approach, and they really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Last Days And Time
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
Earth Wind & Fire's first album for Columbia Records – the start of a really legendary run during the 70s! The sound here is a bit tighter than their first two for Warner Brothers – a groove that has funk and soul taking a bit more precedence over the jazz of their roots – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
Goofy record featuring the saxophone skills of Jimmy Castor. Mr. C blows away on a number of covers of 70's soul hits like "Love Train", "Love's Theme" and "All In Love is Fair", plus a few pop hits like "Walk on the Wild Side". Also with two originals, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love Sign
Aware, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Quite possibly the most righteous work ever from The Counts – a move away from the heavier funk of their Westbound years, and a shift into some great jazz-based material! The vibe here draws heavily on the electric keyboard scene of the early 70s – with echoes of Lonnie Liston Smith's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nightchaser
Curtom, 1976. Very Good
The third album by The Natural Four – the heavenly soul group that was one of Chicago's best harmony acts of the 70s! Like a lot of Curtom material from this period, this album experiments a little with an uptempo sound – and it mixes that with some mellower tracks that are in the vein ...
