Still Caught Up

LP (Item 49576) Spring, 1975 — Condition: Very Good

A great follow up to Mille Jackson's classic Caught Up album – but one that's also a key turning point too! The theme here is the same as the album before – with tunes that have a woman "caught up" in love and all of its tangles – but the sound is also bolder, more positive, and somehow more righteous than before – with Millie stepping from the weepy shadows very firmly into the mainstream – making a bold move forward for women in general in the process! Production is still by southern soul whiz Brad Shapiro – but he's also brightened things a bit too, in keeping with Millie's bolder spirit – shaking off some of the earthier tones of the music, and hipping things up slightly with some more modern instrumentation. Millie's vocals are completely wonderful throughout – rasping with that badass style that would later explode even more strongly – and there's lots of spoken bits that make the tunes sound even more personal – as if you're listening at the door, or tapping the phone while Millie's talking to her man! Titles include "Loving Arms", "Do What Makes You Satisfied", "Making The Best Of A Bad Situation", "The Memory Of A Wife", "Leftovers", and "Tell Her It's Over".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Millie Jackson

Lovingly Yours
Spring, 1976. Very Good+
A great point in Millie Jackson's career – recorded when she was picking up more confidence and class, but not going too far into that badass mode of later years! The sound here is still mostly southern soul, but Millie and co-producer Brad Shapiro have warmed it up a lot – bringing in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fatback Band

Night Fever
Spring, 1976. Sealed
A key turn in the groove for The Fatback Band – one that has the group getting a good dose of "night fever", and smoothing out their funk for the 70s disco crowd! Yet although clubby, the record's still plenty funky – a refinement of the groove first started on Yum Yum, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spring, 1972. Sealed
A big one for Joe – and a marked shift after his southern soul recordings of earlier years. For this one, Joe got on the Philly train early, and hired Gamble & Huff to put the whole thing together with a tight smooth soul groove. The group's got greats like Norman Harris, Vince Montana, ...

Fatback Band

NYCNYUSA
Spring, 1977. Near Mint-
A fantastic bit of funk from Fatback – and one of those records that still makes us scratch our heads, and say "Man, how can they make music this tight?" The sound is impeccable – bass and drums really right on the money, with a focus that's a huge influence on countless acts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Act One (Act 1)

Act One
Spring, 1974. Sealed
An obscure soul group, but a great one – equally at home with a fragile harmony tune as they were with more uptempo groovers for the dancefloor! This one and only album from Act One is a perfect illustration of the best two sides of the east coast indie soul scene of the early 70s – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Simon

Sounds Of Simon
Spring, Early 70s. Very Good
Classic Joe Simon – smooth, soulful, and with slight bits of down-home country in the mix.

LP, Vinyl record album

Ann Peebles

Tellin' It
Hi Records, 1975. Near Mint-
It's the mid 70s, but Ann's still very much in classic form – with thanks to arrangements and production by Willie Mitchell and backing by Andrew Love, Wayne Jackson, and James Mitchell – and sultry, soulful vocals from Ann! There's a bit more of a groove-oriented production style here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet Thunder

Above The Clouds
WMOT/Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the first, and best, albums by this Philly groove combo that sort of represents the "second generation" of the east coast uptempo sound! The tracks are short and tight, and have a sweeping Sigma Sound quality to them – with arrangements and production by Ron Kersey. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Encounter, 1973. Near Mint-
Righteous soul – and the only record ever cut by East Coast – a group led by Larry Blackmon, featuring early vocals by Gwen Guthrie! The style is very hip – a mixture of funk and progressive grooving, all held together with a sound that's young, proud, and which moves easily ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marlena Shaw

Out Of Different Bags
Cadet, 1967. Near Mint-
Marlena Shaw's first-ever album – and while not as all-out righteous as some of her later work, still a really unique record that quickly put Marlena head and shoulders above the rest of the pack! The record's a mix of jazzy vocal numbers and heavier soul tunes – arranged by Richard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blackbyrds

Blackbyrds
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
A funky jazz treasure – and the band's landmark first album! The Blackbyrds were a legendary 70s combo that were discovered by Donald Byrd while he was teaching at Howard University – and they had a tight style that mixed raw funk influences with smoother jazz playing, creating a sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good
A classic 70s soul soundtrack – and a dream of a combination! Curtis Mayfield wrote the soundtrack and produced the album – and the result is a killer batch of 70s soul tracks that matches Aretha's strong vocals with the hip Curtom sound of Chicago! Aretha was still doing pretty well ... LP, Vinyl record album
