On The Riviera

LP (Item 496495) Mango, 1980 — Condition: Very Good+

(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.

Iceberg Slim

Reflections
ALA, 1976. Good+
A fantastic album of bad-rapping spoken material from Iceberg Slim – one of the hippest 70s sets of its type, and a great audio tribute to the man who wrote the books Pimp, Trick Baby, and Mama Black Widow! Slim reads his own work in a very laidback style, but one with a slinky, pimpish feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

This Old Heart Of Mine
Tamla, 1966. Good+
The Isley Brothers on Motown – a really key step forward for the group, who find a whole new level of soul with help from the Holland Dozier Holland team! There's a warmth here missing from previous Isleys material – that rough edge that was more part of their rocking years, softened a ... LP, Vinyl record album
London, 1976. Very Good-
Bloodstone moving into a whole new thing – a funkier groove than before, and one that really points the way towards the group's clubby direction at the end of the 70s! Although best known as a sweet harmony group, Bloodstone shine equally well in this upbeat mode – a territory that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philly Groove, 1968. Good+
A landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level!

Isaac Hayes

Shaft
Enterprise, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A landmark album that hardly needs any introduction – as it's one of the most famous soundtracks, if not soul records, of the 70s! Isaac Hayes had already surprised music fans with the sophistication of his first few solo albums, which had been issued before this one – but with Shaft, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Little Beaver

Joey
Cat, 1972. Good+
An excellent early album from the amazing Little Beaver – a set that's also probably one of his best ever – served up with some extra-dope guitar, and nice deep Miami soul production by Steve Alaimo! Beaver handled all the arrangements – which means that there's plenty of room ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Raw Blues
Stax, 1969. Good+
Classic Stax stuff from Johnnie, with great arrangements that mix blues and soul, and which offer a perfect backing to his soulful voice. Al Jackson produced the session, and the track list includes "Where There's Smoke There's Fire", "That Bone", "That's Where It's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gamble/Philadelphia International, 1968. Good+
An excellent early album from Billy Paul – done in a mode that's quite different than his bigger hits of the 70s! The record's almost more of a jazz outing, but with a definite soulful twist – done in this righteous mode that's not unlike some of the best Nina Simone material from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Winstons

Color Him Father
Metromedia, Late 60s. Good+
The one and only album ever cut by The Winstons – an obscure mixed-race soul combo who had roots in Otis Redding's touring band, and who hit big with a soul Grammy in 1969 for the title track to this one, "Color Him Father". The cut's an amazing document of its time, a sweet little ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Soul '69
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
'69 was certainly Aretha's year – as the success of her initial round of Atlantic recordings had pushed her fully into the limelight, making her one of the most exposed, most reported-on artists in soul music! This album was cut during the height of that time, with Arif Mardin handling all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Sermon!
Blue Note, Early 60s. Good+
One of the Jimmy Smith "jam session" Blue Notes, with a large group that includes Lee Morgan, Lou Donaldson, George Coleman, Tina Brooks, and Art Blakey – nearly all of whom take long solos and dig deep to compete with each other. 3 long tracks, "The Sermon", "JOS&quo ...
