Feel The Spirit

LP (Item 4869) Curtom, 1976 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Leroy Hutson — Feel The Spirit ... LP 14.99

Pure genius from the great Leroy Hutson – a set that's maybe got a funkier feel than some of his previous albums – and all of the completely charming vocals that we've always loved from Leroy over the years! There's plenty of messages in the grooves – and in a way, at this point in his career, Hutson may be doing more to carry the Curtom Records sound forward than the leader of the label himself – given that Curtis Mayfield was maybe starting to stumble slightly in the second half of the 70s. The funky numbers are all filled with complicated jazzy elements – showing a further development of Hutson's songwriting, with help on arrangements from Richard Evans – and titles include the fantastic "You Never Know What You Can Do", plus "Lover's Holiday", "Butterfat", ""Don't Let It Get Next To You", "Feel The Spirit", and "It's The Music".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and light 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.

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!

Bittersweet Stories
Curtom, 1974. Sealed
A very strange release on Curtom – and we're not sure if we should call it a rock album or a soul album!
