Chuck Berry Twist

LP (Item 48710) Chess, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good-

A collection of Chuck's hit tunes for the kids – packaged together to cash in on the twistin' crowd, but really more of a greatest hits LP. Titles include "Roll Over Beethoven", "Maybellene", "Sweet Little Sixteen", "School Days", "Johnny B Goode", and "Back In The USA".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some discoloration from age and some surface wear.)

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.

London Sessions
Chess, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
Chuck Berry makes the same London move as some of his other Chess Records contemporaries – and the result is one of Chuck's best albums from the later years!

Chuck Berry

Fresh Berrys
Chess, 1965. Very Good+

Chess/P-Vine (Japan), Early 50s. Near Mint-
One of the only full sets we've ever seen to document the great run of singles cut by Jackie Brenston in the early 50s – work initially done in Memphis, as a real precursor to that city's soul scene – and later cut also in Chicago, with a really hard-wailing approach! The set's titled ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bama – The Village Poet

Ghettos Of The Mind
Chess, 1974. Very Good-
A lost classic in the funky poetry mode of the 70s – and right up there with the best work from the time by the Last Poets, Jim Ingram, or Gil Scott Heron! Bama's got a rough-edged voice that works very well with the funkier backings of the set – handled by a team that includes Bernard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lucifer

Lucifer
Invictus, 1971. Very Good+
Wonderfully weird sounds from Lucifer – a record cut during the powerhouse 70s soul years of the Invictus/Hot Wax label, but done with a sound that's much more bluesy and rootsy than any other work for the company! Vocals are by Eugene Smith, who has a cool sort of Bay Area vibe – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Wanted One Soul Singer
Stax, 1967. Very Good+
Johnnie Taylor's first album for Stax – and a tremendous little set that easily stands as one of his greatest records ever! Sure, we love Johnnie in all his incarnations – but there's a special sort of something here – a rawness and earnestness – that makes the whole thing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+
One of the nice moments from the days when David Axelrod was producing Lou Rawls! The record's a great mix of soul and tight LA production, and features the breakbeat cut "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)". Other nice ones include "Season Of The Witch", "It's You", "I ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam & Dave

Double Dynamite
Stax, 1966. Very Good+
Sublime early Stax work from Sam & Dave – the kind of record that forever changed the way the male voice was used in group soul music! The rhythms on the tunes are totally raw – bass, drums, and guitar that are kind of fused into a dirty funky bottom that proves a perfect foil for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rare Earth

Dreams/Answers
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+
The funky blue-eyed debut of Rare Earth – an early Detroit combination of soul, rock, and funk! The group really sprang to fame on Motown right after this early album for Verve – but this set may be even harder and heavier than any of their later records – produced by Dennis ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leata Galloway

Naked Truth
CBS, 1988. Very Good+
A sweet late 80s soul set from Leata Galloway – a great singer with a strong musical theater background! Leata's voice is naturally deep, but her range is incredible – which allows her to bring both heavy strength and fragile delicacy, plus these incredible little vocal embellishments ...
