Naked To The World

LP (Item 493650) Epic, 1988 — Condition: Very Good
Nothing too naked here – at least not in the over-exposed way you'd think from the word – as Teena Marie puts it all upfront, lets it all hang out, but always in a bold way that keeps her firmly on top! The album follows strongly from Marie's previous Epic albums – a strong undercurrent of the funk learned during the Rick James/Motown years, but percolated in leaner 80s soul arrangements – some nice bass bits on the bottom, a few catchy crossover riffs, and the kind of badass vocals that always made Teena an empowering artist back in the day! Titles include "Trick Bag", "Ooo La La La", "Crocodile Tears", "Surrealistic Pillow", "Work It", and "The Once & Future Dream".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Tasty
Epic, 1978. Very Good+
A real classic from the great Patti Labelle – one of the lady's first few albums as a solo act, and a set that definitely marks her step forward into a whole new sort of sophisticated soul!

Stand!
Epic, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
Hard to find a stronger early album by Sly – as this one has him still funking hard, but also getting his soul bag together a bit more, hitting some really righteous vibes that mix together politics and partying in an incredibly seductive way. The album's filled with anthemic numbers like ... LP, Vinyl record album

Her Name Is Erma

Early early work from Aretha's foxy sister – recorded in a mode that's similar to some of Aretha's Columbia work from the same period!

Love Childs Afro Cuban Blues Band

Out Among 'Em
Roulette, 1975. Very Good
A sweet set of 70s Latin Disco – less Afro-Cuban than you might expect, but a great illustration of the way that older Latin modes had filtered down to more mainstream dancefloors at the time! There's definitely still some Latin elements in the mix – but the set's also got Michael ... LP, Vinyl record album
