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, 1965. Very Good
Great early work by Lou Rawls – no, the album doesn't have funky David Axelrod arrangements – but it does feature Lou with some great jazzy backing by Benny Carter – who really knows how to put the right degree of punch in the arrangements to bring out the best in Lou's voice. ... 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

Nobody But Lou
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Great early stuff by Lou! No, the record doesn't have funky David Axelrod arrangements – but it does have some great jazzy backing by Benny Carter, which gives Lou's sweet soulful voice a great platform to riff off of. The record's one of Lou's jazziest, and it's mostly tight and swinging ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1979. Very Good+
Not as hit-heavy as some of Lou's other albums for Philly International, but a nice batch of mellow jazzy soul tracks – with arrangements by Thom Bell, Bunny Sigler, Dexter Wansel, and others. Some of the tunes get nicely uptempo – hitting the warmer clubby modes that always worked ... 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.

Rene & Angela

Rise
Capitol, 1983. Very Good
Hard to go wrong with Rene & Angela at this point in their career – as they're super tight, always upbeat, and plenty darn soulful – no matter what the groove! The album's a perfect example of 80s groove at its best – a reworking of mainstream soul modes with a slight modern ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1986. Very Good
Skyy is still shining brightly in the mid 80s – delivering nicely thumping, dancefloor ready soul on From The Left Side! After a number of sweet sets for Salsoul, the group moved on up to Capitol Records for this one set – embracing the era's synth soul production sheen more than ever, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1985. Near Mint-
While little of Clinton's work under his own name in the 80s compares favorably with the best of the Parliament-Funkadelic years, it's still fairly solid compared to a lot of the other commercial R&B dreck that was being peddled at the time. With the sort of fat bass, loads of synthesized ... LP, Vinyl record album
