Without You In My Life

LP (Item 4919) Dakar, 1972 — Condition: 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 approach – a blend that's laid out perfectly in the album's arrangements from Monk Higgins, Willie Henderson, and Tom Tom Washington! Tyrone's a singer who's really a cut above – especially on his early work like this – able to charm and convince us with just about any sort of lyric. Titles include "Wrapped Up In Your Warm & Tender Love", "I'm Just Your Man", "There It Is", "I Had It All the Time", and "True Love Is Hard to Find".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed original pressing! Cover has a cutout hole.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Mercury, 1970. Very Good+
Killer stuff from Gene! After recording a few sadly overlooked albums for Brunwsick, Gene hit big big big with this killer record on Mercury!

Edwin Starr

Hell Up In Harlem
Motown, 1974. Very Good+
Despite what you think of Edwin Starr otherwise, he did a great job on this soundtrack, which is every bit as funky as any of Willie Hutch's work for other Motown scores!

Thing With Two Heads
Pride, 1972. Near Mint-
We're not sure how much of this music was actually used in the crazy movie about a man with two heads from two races (white and black, natch – and starring Rosie Grier and Ray Miland), but it was produced by Michael Viner (then head of the hip Pride/MGM soul imprint), and includes two great ...

Gloria Jones

Share My Love
Motown, 1973. Very Good+
A heavy heavy set from Gloria Jones – a record that features some killer Paul Riser arrangements that are right up there with the deepest Motown work of the early 70s!

Salsoul, 1979. Near Mint-
That's Ron Baker, Norman Harris, and Earl Young – one of the greatest rhythm sections in Philly soul of the 70s – stepping out here on an amazing album of their own!

77 Records/Sound Stage 7, Early 70s. Near Mint-
One of the few rare full LPs on the Sound Stage Seven label – and a collection of excellent late 60s singles by Sir Lattimore Brown (not to be confused with the Latimore from Miami!) The tracks have a bluesy Tennessee soul groove to them – with some great mellow numbers, and a few ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Hudson & the Soul Partners

Especially For You
ABC, 1977. Near Mint-
Fantastic early work from Al Hudson – a record that's kind of a first chapter to all the excellent work by One Way to come – even though Al's not using that group name at this time! The record's got this cool, classy vibe – an update of an earlier Detroit soul mode, and one that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Lytle

Done It Again
Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Very very very groovy stuff by this masterful jazz vibist, recorded with a sort of late 60s swingin' feel – but still very much in the pocket and warm as a summer breeze! Lytle has a pretty remarkable way of playing the vibes with speed and energy, yet the overall feel still has kind of a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Silent Tongues
Arista Freedom, 1974. Near Mint-
Beautiful free-flowing work by Cecil Taylor – and a key album to document his solo piano genius in the 70s!

Cruising With Ruben & The Jets
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
Frank Zappa's amazing tribute to the sounds of LA that inspired him in his youth – not just the early rock and roll of the late 50s, but the way the music was picked up and given a home by the scene in East LA! There's a surprising amount of nascent soul elements in the music here – ... LP, Vinyl record album
