CD (Item 498782) ALA/Infinite Zero, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


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 too – kind of a relaxed version of the Lightning Rod mode, with similar themes delivered in rhyming prose – maybe the west coast take on territory explored by The Last Poets, or maybe the audio equivalent of the blackspolitation album The Mack – in comparison to more righteous narratives of the time. Backings are by the Rod Holloway Quartet – who hit some great bluesy modes on the set – vamping behind Slim's cool vocals, which themselves are recorded with a nicely pointed quality. Titles include "Mama Debt", "Durealla", "The Fall", and "Broadway Sam". Right up there with Watts Prophets, Last Poets, and Lightning Rod for sheer 70s hipness!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(1995 Infinite Zero pressing with white background. Artwork has some age spots.)

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.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Al Jarreau is grooving in a pure modern pop soul mode on this mid 80s set – and it works really, really well – a not-so-surprising creative win even if it's not the jazzy Jarreau record longtime fans may have preferred at the time – one of our favorite mid-decade Nile Rodgers ... CD
