Mary Wells Greatest Hits

LP (Item 48090) Motown, 1964 — Condition: Very Good+
It's only 1964, early in Motown's history, but Mary's managed to rack up a considerable batch of hits – no surprise since she was one of the label's best female singers of the early years! This set features 12 classics by Mary – including "You Beat Me To The Punch", "My Guy", "Your Old Stand By", "Two Lovers", "The One Who Really Loves You", and "What Love Has Joined Together".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has some edge wear.)

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.

Willie Hutch

Concert In Blues
Motown, 1976. Very Good+
No blues at all – just some great funky soul from the mighty Willie Hutch – served up here on one of his classic full length sets for Motown in the 70s! The vibe's kind of an extension of Willie's great blacksploitation soundtrack material from a few years before – lots of bad-str ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Ruffin

Who I Am
Motown, 1975. Very Good
David Ruffin at the height of his solo powers – working in that mature mix of soul and strings that made him one of the more sophisticated Motown talents of the time!

Motown, 1974. Near Mint-
A strange title, but a great little record – and a real righteous step forward for David Ruffin!

Stevie Wonder

I Was Made To Love Her
Motown, 1967. Very Good
Excellent work from Stevie Wonder – and a record that really has him emerging strongly as an adult soul singer!

Al Green

Tokyo Live
Motown, 1981. Very Good+ 2LP
A tasty double-live set from Al Green – one that has him working through longer versions of tunes than you'd hear on his studio albums, and really doing great in front of an appreciative Japanese crowd! The overall approach here is a bit more modern than on some of his older Hi albums – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mandre

M3000
Motown, 1979. Very Good+
3rd album of futuristic soul from Mandre, with a bit less of the Dexter Wansel influenced sound we love so much about the first album, and more of the bass heavy sound that would predominate in the 80s, as well as a good bit of synthesized sounds and slick production flourishes, even a bit of ...
