Fabulous Rhinestones

LP (Item 47424) Just Sunshine, 1972 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

A classic killer from The Fabulous Rhinestones – a group with a plenty soulful approach to their music, even if the group was probably more of a rock outfit than a funk-based one! There's some heavy rhythms on most of the tracks – kind of a gentle funky groove that's mixed in with great organ lines and sweet guitars – all to couch perfectly the lead vocals of Kal David, who sings with a raspy, earnest tune that really fits the grooves! The group are definitely lesser-known than some of the bigger funk rock acts of the time – but they're also one of the best, too. Titles include "Big Indian", "Positive Direction", "Nothing New", "Free", "Living On My Own Time", and "Easy As You Make It".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has surface wear and a cutout hole.)

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.

Joni Mitchell

Blue
Reprise, 1971. Good Gatefold
A peak album for Joni and genuinely one of the greatest singer-singwriter albums of the 70s, if not ever, all the greater for the intimacy of the songs and beauty of her voice! Perfect isn't a word you want to throw around too often, but Joni Mitchell's Blue might be one of the rare perfect albums. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Allman Brothers

Brothers & Sisters
Capricorn, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
The Allman Brothers at their best – and a key 70s set that may well have the group working at their peak! All their best southern roots are firmly tied together here – not just the country-touched approach to rock that was the group's calling card, but also their ties to some of the ...

Joe Jackson

Night & Day
A&M, 1982. Very Good+ Gatefold
A heck of a great record – and we don't mind saying it! After knocking around in territory that ran from new wave to neo ska, retro swing, and other assorted genres, Joe Jackson really emerged with a strong voice on this 1982 classic. The album's a loving tribute to New York – and is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirelles

Happy & In Love
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
A great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alec R Costandinos

Romeo & Juliet
Casablanca, 1977. Very Good+
Without a doubt, Alec R. Costandinos was one of the strangest disco arranger/producers of the 70s! He had a very baroque vision that took full advantage of the disco industry's heavy cash to turn out these mini disco symphonies filled with full orchestral strings, funky beats, and very high ...

Muddy Waters

Can't Get No Grindin
Chess, 1973. Sealed
Muddy Waters can't get no grinding – but that's hardly a problem, given the strength of this sweet early 70s set! The album marks Muddy's return to more basic Chicago blues after his funky electric period on Chess – but the set's still got some of the trippier touches of a few years ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ritchie Family

African Queens
Marlin, 1977. Very Good+
Possibly not as righteous as you might expect from the title or queen images on the cover – but a pretty nice little album nonetheless, and maybe the best so far from the Ritchie Family!

Dramatics

Dramatic Jackpot
ABC, 1975. Sealed Gatefold
One of the Dramatics' best albums, and a real masterpiece of 70's group soul! The style here is a bit different than the group's previous records for Stax – maybe a bit tighter, with sweet arrangements – but these fantastic vocals that cut through everything and grab you to your core ...
