Too Much!

LP (Item 47285) Capitol, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

One of the great ones – produced by David Axelrod, with HB Barnum arrangements, and sublime vocals by Lou, who's really at his best in this sort of setting! The album features 2 hip monologues – "Righteous Woman" and "Dead End Street" – plus the famous sung version of the latter, and the tracks "You're Takin My Bag", "I'll Take Time", "Why", and "Yes, It Hurts (Doesn't It?)".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Lou Rawls

Shades Of Blue
Philadelphia International, 1980. Near Mint-
One of Lou Rawls' last albums for Philly International, and a really nice departure from the style of Lou's earlier hits for the label. It's got a sophisticated jazzy mode that has Rawls often singing with sparer piano backings than the fuller strings of the late 70s – in a way that's sort ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1966. Very Good
One of the greatest albums to ever sum up the genius of Lou Rawls in the 60s – a brilliant live set put together with the talents of David Axelrod! The record perfectly captures the easy-going soul of Rawls in the early years – a natural approach to his music that made him one of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Rawls

Carryin' On!
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
One of Lou's excellent Capitol sessions produced by David Axelrod! The record's not an outwardly funky one, but Axe gives the set a nice loping groove on the best tracks – the sound that he brought to his best work with Rawls, and which really put him over the top back in the 60s. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good-
The move to Philly International did wonders for Lou's career – and there's no denying that the smooth soul sound of Gamble and Huff worked perfectly with his rich vocal style! The "classy" setting took Lou to a whole new level, while also providing a good force for his still-soulfu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sheree Brown

Music
Capitol, 1982. Very Good+
One of the two beautifully sweet albums of soul that the lovely Sheree Brown cut for Capitol in the early 80s. This one has less of a smooth jazzy sound than her first one, but it compensates by adding some tracks in a nice 80s groove mode – pushing the sound a bit further than before. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ashford & Simpson

Solid
Capitol, 1984. Near Mint-
Darn solid work from Ashford & Simpson – one of the duo's biggest albums for Capitol Records, and a great set from their 80s run for the label! The groove here is a bit more heavy on keyboards and beats than before, but the pair still keep things plenty soulful with their positive, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reflections

Love On Delivery
Capitol, 1975. Very Good
A modern soul classic – and a darn hard record to find! The Reflections were an obscure male quartet with a sound that mixed deep soul vocals and smooth modern production, and as far as we know, they only ever cut this one LP for Capitol. Melba Moore gave the group their start, and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Natalie Cole

Inseparable
Capitol, 1975. Very Good
Natalie Cole's stunning debut for Capitol Records in the mid 70s – a real surprise, and a set that should have had the singer blossoming even more than she did at the time! As with some of the other Capitol soul sessions of the time, the album's done very firmly under the guidance of Charles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sylvers

Showcase
Capitol, 1976. Very Good
Great groovers from The Sylvers – a set cut when the group were firmly in their disco years – a great setting for their playful family-style vocals! In fact, moving to disco may well have been one of the greatest things the group could have done – because it really set them apart ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maze

We Are One
Capitol, 1983. Very Good
Completely killer work from Frankie Beverly & Maze – captured here at the height of their power, with that amazing blend of Frankie's lead vocals and the group's tight instrumentation – all at a level that so many others tried to copy, but never got this right! The sense of unity ... LP, Vinyl record album
