Sensational

LP (Item 497034) Elektra, 1987 — Condition: Sealed

Sensational sounds from Starpoint – an overlooked set from 80s, and one that has the group working with contemporary soul maestro Preston Glass! Glass brings in his own approach to beats and keyboards, and helps the group find a style that's got lots of lean bounce, and a style that maybe picks up a bit of the currents that were touching mainstream soul from the world of hip hop – almost a pre-New Jack Swing approach at times. Titles include "He Wants My Body", "DYBO", "Prove It Tonight", "Sensational", "Another Night", "Touch Of Your Love", and "Second Chance".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed, with hype sticker. Shrinkwrap has a hole from price sticker removal.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Teddy Pendergrass

Joy
Elektra, 1988. Very Good+
A definite joy from the legendary Teddy Pendergrass – a late 80s album, but one that manages to still stay in all the best territory of his classic early solo work! Like a rare few from his generation, Teddy never gets overwhelmed by some heavier R&B production – that more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Five Special

Special Edition
Elektra, 1980. Near Mint-
Classic funky soul from Five Special – tightly crafted throughout, and clearly with an eye on the charts – but also the kind of work that plays nicely on the dancefloor too!

Very Special
Elektra, 1981. Very Good+
Definitely a very special album from the lovely Debra Laws – member of the famous Laws family of groovers, getting a chance to really shine here in the spotlight!

Terry Callier

Fire On Ice
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+
One of the great albums from Terry Callier's "second chapter" on record – a time when he was working for Elektra Records, and doing work that was a bit straighter soul than before – and also slightly jazzy as well! The record's kind of a mix of jazzy grooves and smoother soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Twennynine With Lenny White

Best Of Friends
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+
Jazzy soul all the way through – and a great little album from Lenny White and the Twennynine combo – a group that features some especially great keyboards from the great Don Blackman! The style here's a bit like some of Blackman's own work – rooted in fusion, but focused towards ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aquarian Dream

Chance To Dance
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+
Aquarian Dream step out on their own – working here for the first time without Norman Connors at the helm, but in a groove that's still plenty nice! The clubby aspects of the group's sound are played up by arranger/producer Jeff Lane – who'd worked often with BT Express and Brass ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGs

Universal Language
Elektra, 1977. Sealed
A sweet sweet set of electric 70s funk – recorded by Booker T during a brief, but well-needed reunion with the MGs! The sound here is quite different than Stax-era MGs – as Booker plays a range of keyboards, not just organ – and the grooves have these great jazz funk touches at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Suzi Lane

Ooh La La
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+
The only full length record we've ever seen from singer Suzi Lane – and a catchy batch of late 70s disco produced by Giorgio Moroder, but also featuring arrangements by Harold Faltermeyer – in a tuneful, hook-styled mode that's as sweet as can be! Suzi's vocals are the seductive and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Five Special
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+
The debut album from Five Special – a wonderful group who push an older harmony soul style firmly into the 80s groove generation!

Flying Dutchman, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
Gil Scott-Heron's first album – and his angriest! Unlike some of Gil's other albums – which have a sweet jazzy vibe and a mix of mellow soul styles – this one's a lot rawer, and features Gil rapping loud over very heavy percussion backing. All the work is his own, and the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album
