Blind Baby

LP (Item 4995) Buddah, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

A classic album by this righteous soul collective – and one that shows them taking a strong step away from their work at RCA with Harvey Fuqua. This one has the group (ever-enormous as always!) absorbing some of the other elements of modern soul that were floating around at the time – and they make a nice mark for themselves on the album's mix of ballad tracks and uptempo numbers. Titles include "Blind Man", "Blind Baby", "Dream Merchant", "Forever", "I Remember Well", and "Granddaddy"  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cutout notch with some splitting in the top seams.)

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.

New Birth

Reincarnation
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
A mix of previously released tracks from the group's harder to find early albums, like "Unborn Child", "Don't Blame the Young Folks", and "You've Got to Be the One for Me", plus some other unissued tracks like "Sunshine Song", "What You Can Do", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1974. Sealed
Hard funky soul from The New Birth – still sounding pretty raw at this point, and with that funky group ensemble feel that you'll hear on their best early albums! The tracks have plenty of nice guitar and clavinet work, and a shifting lead vocal approach that's pretty great on most cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dorothy Morrison

Brand New Day
Buddah, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
Pop soul with a bit of a gospelly feel. Dorothy's backed by a nice little instrumental combo that keeps the sound pretty soulful, despite some weaker material in the song selection. Titles include "Black California", "Brand New Day", "The Border Song", "Can You ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara Mason

Give Me Your Love
Buddah, 1972. Very Good
The sensuous soul gem from Barbara Mason – a sweetly soulful groover all the way – and one of her strongest records! Give Me Your Love gets our love for a bunch of reasons, but especially for the title track – which is reworking of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love" ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1974. Very Good
Standout work from The Younghearts – one of the best harmony soul groups of the 70s to record away from the east coast. The group's vocals are the strongest thing about the record – but they get a great extra push from Vernon Bullock, who produced and conducted the record with a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara Acklin

Love Makes A Woman
Brunswick, 1968. Near Mint-
Barbara Acklin's first album – and a landmark of Chicago soul that firmly established Acklin as one of the city's best writers and new female singers! Acklin had a classy sound that was different than some of her raw soul sisters in the city – but although she was classy, she also didn' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

You
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good
A great little record from Aretha – and on that always seems to get overlooked! The album's arranged by Gene Page, and it's got a sweet slightly funky electric side that opens up a whole new side of Aretha's style. Includes the nice groover "Mr DJ (5 For The DJ)", plus the cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry White & Love Unlimited Orchestra

Together Brothers – Original Soundtrack (Japanese pressing)
20th Century (Japan), 1974. Near Mint-
A stunner of a soundtrack from the maestro Barry White – his only entry into the blacksploitation film genre of the 70s, and a complete doozy throughout! For the album, Barry's stripped down the bigger space of his own records, and his Love Unlimited productions – into some shorter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marlena Shaw

Out Of Different Bags
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+
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!
