Wild Magnolias

LP (Item 4946) Polydor, 1974 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

Classic New Orleans funk featuring backing from the "New Orleans Project" that includes the Gaturs' Willie Tee, Earl Turbinton, and other Crescent City session stalwarts like Larry Panna and Julius Farmer. Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80's, including "Soul Soul Soul" and "Corey Died On The Battlefield". With nice sweet keyboards, and a good funky New Orleans sound that you won't find on many other records from the time.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(UK pressing on Barclay in a gatefold cover!)

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.

Jungle Fever
Polydor, 1972. Near Mint-
A mad mix of Latin and funky rhythms – a 70s classic from the Belgian group Chakachas!

James Brown

Payback
Polydor, 1973. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s!

Recorded during the same ... LP, Vinyl record album

Style Council

Our Favourite Shop
Polydor (UK), 1985. Near Mint- Gatefold
A blue-eyed soul classic from the UK scene of the 80s – probably the last truly great album from The Style Council, and a great blend of 60s influences with the post-Jam sound of Paul Weller. The album's got a bit more polish than before, but still none of the too-poppy modes that would mar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1978. Very Good
A popping funky disco album cut decades before the French would be responsible for reviving the sound of classic disco. It's easy to see where the late 90s disco house revival in Paris got their inspiration on slamming drawn out club tracks like the classic "Jungle DJ" with everything ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wayne Henderson

Living On A Dream
Polydor, 1978. Very Good
One of Wayne Henderson's best albums as an artist from the 70s – next to countless excellent work he handled as a producer! The set's got a gentle jazz funk groove overall – similar to Henderson's best At-Home productions for other groups, and performed with a host of great talents ... LP, Vinyl record album

Odetta

Odetta Sings
Polydor, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Quite different than the usual Odetta album – and a record that has the folk singer running through some hipper more modern numbers, often with a bit of a funky twist!

Willie Bobo & the Bo-Gents

Do What You Want To Do
Sussex, Early 70s. Very Good+
Incredible work by Willie Bobo – a slamming record of hard funky instrumentals, one that sounds different than any of his other albums! The record's a killer all the way through – a mixture of Latin and deep 70s funk, one of the few perfect fusions of the styles, held up beautifully ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Perfect Angel
Epic, 1974. Very Good
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest female soul stars! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara Acklin

Seven Days Of Night
Brunswick, 1969. Very Good
An excellent second album by Barbara Acklin – and a perfect demonstration of her really unique Chicago soul talents! Acklin's really at the cusp of two generations here – at one level still with some of the sweetness of the earlier style of 60s girl soul, but at another full of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
A masterpiece of east coast harmony soul – and worth it for the title cut alone!
