It's All Yours

LP (Item 472597) Elektra, 1984 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.60 11

Massive work from Starpoint – one of the few groups from the 80s groove generation who could tighten up their act, yet still keep all the best elements of their music firmly in place! The album's got a feel that's a bit more polished than their first few records – but not much more, and usually in a way that helps the group shake free from some of the cliches that were holding back some of the more groove-centric acts in their generation. The lead vocals from Renee Diggs are wonderful throughout – soaring with enough energy to match the rhythms on the upbeat numbers, and sounding even sweeter on the album's few mellow cuts. Titles include "Am I Still The One", "Satisfy Me Lover", "Breakout", "This Is So Right", "It's All Yours", "Always On My Mind", and a cover of Bill Withers' "Use Me". (Cover has a promo stamp and a sticker on front.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the one lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California ...

The second album by this legendary 70s funk combo – best known as Herbie Hancock's backing band, but sounding great here on their own.

The third album by this Leon Ware side project – and possibly the best! The album's got a tight, funky sound right from the get-go – kind of a perfect 80s groove that never showed up on the group's previous records, but which really seemed to be the sound they were waiting for!
