Insides Out

LP (Item 4806) Dakar, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

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 + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Dakar, 1976. Near Mint-
Easy to dance your ass off with music this great – a fast, firey form of funk that's very much in the best Bohannon mode – that unique groove that was unlike anything else to hit the American scene for years to come! The record's a locomotive right from the start – a completely ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone Davis

Turning Point!
Dakar, 1975. Very Good-
One of Tyrone Davis' last albums for Dakar – and a great one too – issued in 1976 before the demise of that label, and Tyrone's big move to Columbia Records! Tyrone's still working strongly here in that great Chicago mix of smooth and rough – a sound first forged on his early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

Talking Book
Tamla, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
One of the classics, and an album that's filled with a sense of majesty and power that will knock you dead – despite the kind of silly cover of Stevie sitting on a hill, playing in the dirt! By this point, Stevie knows he's on top of the world as well he should – and he's honing the ... LP, Vinyl record album

People's Choice

Boogie Down USA
TSOP, 1975. Very Good
One of the most successful albums cut by People's Choice during the 70s – and a record that shows them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. Yet despite the easily imagined disco that the title might indicate, the album's actually got ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Jackson

Bad
Epic, 1987. Very Good+ Gatefold
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cameo

Word Up!
Atlanta/Polygram, 1986. Near Mint-
A mid-80s classic from Cameo – one that showed the world that the group was still very much in the funky music game, even if their lineup had been reduced to a trio! Larry Blackmon's still at the head of the group – singing, drumming, and playing bass throughout – with plenty of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shalamar

Look
Solar, 1983. Very Good
Given the fashions on the cover, the "look" is pretty darn silly – but the music is plenty darn great! The album's one of the best from the point when Shalamar could still serve things up with the best – a lean, mean, pop-focused approach to 80s groove that's produced with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson Pickett

Funky Situation
Atlantic/Big Tree, 1978. Near Mint-
Fame production – by Rick Hall and Don Daily! Titles include "Lay Me Like You Hate Me", "Groovin", "Funky Situation", "Time To Let The Sun Shine On Me", "Who Turned You On", "Dance With Me", and "She's So Tight". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Arrington's Hall Of Fame

Positive Power
Atlantic, 1984. Very Good
... LP, Vinyl record album
Bell/Amos, Early 70s. Very Good+
Totally excellent – and probably the best of the Planet Of The Apes soundtracks! The record features lots of snippets of dialogue from the film – including Cornelius telling the creed of the fate of man, General Ursus addressing Ape City, and the chilling Mass Of The Holy Bomb. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry Mulligan

California Concerts
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good-
A classic live album by Gerry – featuring one set of tracks recorded in Stockton, CA in 1954, with Chico Hamilton, Red Mitchell, and Jon Eardley; and another recorded in San Diego the same year, with Zoot Sims, Bob Brookmeyer, Larry Bunker, Red Mitchell, and Eardley. Gerry even plays a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
