On The Riviera

LP (Item 496495) Mango, 1980 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

(In original shrinkwrap with hype sticker.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Warner, 1967. Near Mint-
A weird little record from Bill Cosby – a set that's not as all-out funky as some of his other vocal albums, but still pretty nice overall! The style here is more bluesy than soul-based, but production is still by Fred Smith, of 103rd Street Rhythm Band fame – and the album has a sense ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Pleasure
Westbound, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
A true pleasure indeed – easily one of the greatest records ever by the Ohio Players, and a perfect summation of all things great in their groove! The album's a landmark effort – even for the heady days of the early 70s – as the Players manage to bring together a fair bit of jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boppers (aka LA Boppers)

Boppers
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+
Classic jazzy vocal funk, produced by the At-Home productions team, and with the kind of scatting jazz harmonies that At-Home also worked with on the Side Effect albums. The group later went onto become the LA Boppers, and record for Mercury, but this album has more of a straight jazz funk feel, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Wycoff

Come To My World
RCA, 1980. Very Good+
A perfect example of the kind of sophisticated groove he had right from the start of his legendary run on RCA – the kind of vibe that maybe kept Wycoff off the charts at the time, but which has made him a favorite on the underground scene for years! Keyboards play a big part in the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & Fire

That's The Way Of The World
CBS, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
Amazing! Earth Wind & Fire's ultimate moment of the 70s – and a perfect blending of all their influences that stands as a lasting tribute to their super-huge effect on soul music! The record features all aspects of the band coming into perfect cohesion – bassy funk, mellow soul, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

Tears Of A Clown
Motown, 1967. Near Mint-
About as classic as you can get for late 60s Miracles! Smokey's vocals are in perfect form, and the group still has that 60s falsetto harmony sound, with lots of fragile bits and strong group backing. Includes the huge hit "Tears Of A Clown", plus a motherlode of great originals that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Otis Redding

Dock Of The Bay
Volt, 1968. Near Mint-
A very important crossover soul album – a huge hit for Otis Redding that was released after his tragic death in December 1967 – but it's also hard to say if it would have had the impact it did had Redding not passed while the LP was still in production. In a way, the record sort of set ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam & Dave

Best Of Sam & Dave
Atlantic, 1960s. Near Mint-
Great work from one of the tightest acts of 60s soul – the always-energetic Sam & Dave, working here with an excellent batch of tracks by Isaac Hayes & David Porter! Titles include "Hold On, I'm Comin", "May I Baby", "Soul Man", "I Thank You", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grover Washington Jr

Feels So Good
Kudu, 1975. Very Good+
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Infant Eyes
Muse, 1979. Very Good+
An overlooked Hammond slammer from Charles Earland – cut at a time when he was working on more electric keyboards for other labels. The set's a killer all the way through – very much in the best early 70s Prestige Records mode – with long tracks that really jam, and a lineup that ... LP, Vinyl record album
