Insides Out

LP (Item 4806) Dakar, 1974 — Condition: Very Good-
Also available
Bohannon — Insides Out ... CD 13.99

A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual! Although most of Bohannon's work from the time is up-tempo and funky, side two of this album has some amazing slow spacey cuts – done with a drum sound that's still quite hard, but just slower than usual, in a style that creates some nice stepping grooves that are augmented by some wild off-beat, out-of-tune piano work! Sounds like it shouldn't work, but it does – and the ultimate moment on the album is the amazing "Thoughts And Wishes", a cool instrumental that's been a major steppers track in Chicago for years. Side one is more in the usual Bohannon funk mode – and tracks on the album include "Disco Stomp", "Foot Stompin Music", "Love Is Fading", and "Happy Feeling".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Tyrone Davis

Without You In My Life
Dakar, 1972. Sealed
Warm and tender work from the mighty Tyrone Davis – really singing here at the height of his early powers, in that wonderful blend of the rough and smooth that made him so unique! Davis has a gritty touch in his singing style, but the backings have that perfect Brunswick Chicago soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown

Grits & Soul
Smash, 1964. Very Good+
One of the grooviest of the James Brown instrumental albums recorded for Smash. Unlike some of the other weaker albums on Smash, this one's got a great batch of material, most of which are originals, and not weak covers of pop tunes. Plus, the tracks are longer than usual, which gives the band a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fred Parris & The Satins

Fred Parris & The Satins
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+
The Five Satins were always one of the classiest groups of the doo wop era – and they really continue that legacy here in a wonderful set of modern soul tracks from the early 80s – a record that's got all the careful poise and polish of other excellent Elektra soul albums from the same ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Mayfield

Sweet Exorcist
Curtom, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A wonderfully wicked album from Curtis Mayfield – one that's not nearly as famous as his Superfly set, but which is every bit as great! The groove here is lean, mean, and totally righteous – a bit more stripped-down than some of the rumbling funk of other Curtom efforts, and served up ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Train, 1976. Very Good+
Fantastic Norman Harris production makes this one of the best-ever efforts from The Whispers at this time! Norman put together the incredible "Living Together (In Sin)", and plays some excellent guitar on the track – and he takes the sweet west coast harmonies of The Whispers into ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vanity 6

Vanity 6
Warner, 1982. Near Mint-
The only record from this group that would sort of morph into Apollonia 6, one of many Prince vehicles during the 80s. As you'd hope from a Prince side project, the tracks here bubble with his new wave/pop/funk crossover, though really the hit "Nasty Girl" is pretty much the only ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family Stone

Small Talk
Epic, 1974. Very Good+
Sly's still doing pretty nice for himself in 1974 – with a sound that's perhaps a bit warmer than on the early records, but still nice and soulful – and peppered with a good dose of funk! The groove is really great on the set – bubbling with a more "deep down" feel than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay, 1965. Very Good+
One of few albums ever by one of the first big Chicago female soul stars – and a nice set of tracks that goes past her huge "Shoop Shoop" hit to include a few of her great duets with Jerry Butler. Titles include "Let It Be Me" and "Smile", both with Jerry, plus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Switch

Switch
Gordy, 1978. Very Good+
A seminal bit of seventies soul from Switch, and a record that really helped set the tone for countless others to come in the 80s – no surprise, given that the group's got members from both the DeBarge and Ingram families! There's a warmth here that few others can match – an earnest, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Three Degrees

Three Degrees
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Smooth female soul from one of Philly's hottest female trios – Gamble & Huff's big answer to First Choice, and an equally important force in 70s female soul! The album's got a nice mixture of Philly groove and tighter crossover arrangements from the likes of Norman Harris, Bobby Martin, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Slick

Go For It
Fantasy, 1980. Very Good+
More of a cohesive effort than the group's first album – one that features more vocals, by the trio of Doris James, Dahlia Smythe, and Marguerite Pinder. The Ingram Family have less to do with this one, and arrangements are by Bill Neale, Pete DeAngelis, and Larry James. Titles include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leo Wright

Blues Shout
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+
A beautiful record, and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by alto player Leo Wright! At the time of the set, Wright was really making some excellent records with Lalo Schifrin and in Dizzy Gillespie's group (where they both were working at the time) – and this set is a perfect ...
