War

LP (Item 47746) United Artists, 1971 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

A wonderful first solo album from War – a set that has them breaking away from their early partnership with singer Eric Burdon – and finding an even better groove in the process! The vibe here is hipper, and even more righteous than before – some of those great jazz currents on flute, keyboards, and even harmonica – that sweet Lee Oskar mode that always made the group so great – set to very cool rhythms that blend together funk, Latin, and soul elements – all openly grooving here at a level that's free from some of the more hitbound modes of their biggest records. The whole thing's great, and still stunningly fresh after all these years – and titles include "Sun Oh Son", "Lonely Feelin", "Back Home", "War Drums", and "Vibeka".  © 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.

War

Galaxy
MCA, 1977. Very Good
A massive jammer from War – and a record that brought the group to a whole new generation of listeners – as well as a good number of later fans who discovered some of these jams in the club! The groove here isn't disco, but this tightening up of War's sweet jamming vibe – almost ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1975. Very Good
A huge moment for War – maybe the group's biggest album of the 70s, but a set that still has them holding onto everything that makes the great! Like Earth Wind & Fire at their best, War have this way of staying strong and righteous, while still able to hit a hook – jamming one ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1972. Very Good
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brass Construction

Brass Construction III
United Artists, 1977. Very Good-
Another killer from Brass Construction – served up in that fantastic Randy Muller groove! The group's a bit one, but they've got a tightness that's really incredible – horns, bass, keys, and drums all focused together perfectly – hitting a pulsating rhythmic line that's perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good
Bobby's so great, it's hard to fit all of his good stuff on one LP – but this set does a pretty darn good job, and includes 12 tracks from his legendary years on United Artists! Hearing this set, we're stunned to realize just how many great tracks Bobby turned out over the years – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dutch Robinson

Nothin's Got Me
United Artists, 1977. Very Good+
A nice bit of late 70s southern soul from singer Dutch Robinson – best known for his early work with the Ohio Players! The session gets a little boost from some strong Horace Ott arrangements – full and rich, but never too slick – and the album features 9 tracks in all, including ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose

Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+
A wonderful album from this enigmatic soul group! Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose were one of a handful of early 70s groups – like Chairmen Of The Board or 100 Proof Aged In Soul – who had a sound that was incredibly hard to peg. There were bits of southern rawness in the vocals, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Brawner & Raw Sugar

Kenny Brawner & Raw Sugar
United Artists, 1978. Near Mint-
Obscure batch of funky tracks, produced by Horace Ott, and released on the Pyramid subsidiary of United Artists. The tracks have sort of a late 70s well-produced funk feel, with lots of bass, and ensemble playing. Tracks include "Vibes", "Goin Home", "Stay Up", " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lea Roberts

Lady Lea
United Artists, 1975. Very Good+
A mixture of smooth LA soul with some deeper tendencies – Lea's second album for United Artists, and very much in the spirit of the first. Titles include "She Will Break Your Heart", "Lost In Your Love", "Chained To This Memory", "You're Gonna Need A ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Jackson

Good To See You
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Near Mint-
Sophisticated soul from the great Walter Jackson – one of the best voices ever to come out of the Chicago soul scene, and a wonderful interpreter of just about any material! The record's got some wonderful arrangements by Riley Hampton – who worked with Jackson on his earlier sessions ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ike Turner

Blues Roots
United Artists, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
album's not lying with the title – as it's a rootsy album of electric blues numbers. Searing guitar, raw drums, horns, bass and piano – played by Ike alone! . Titles include "The Things I Used To Do", "Right On", "Goin Home", "Think", "That ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone Davis

In The Mood
Columbia, 1979. Very Good
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... LP, Vinyl record album
