Exuma

LP (Item 501689) Mercury, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

A landmark first album from Exuma – one of a handful of early 70s classics that really worked hard to break down musical genres! At some level, the set's got a Caribbean feel, but at others it's quite funky – a great mix of Exuma's Bahamian roots and some of the headier sounds that Mercury Records was serving up at the time – all hinted at strongly by the rootsy psychedelia of the cover! And given Exuma's appeal to wider audiences, it's almost tempting to think of him as sort of a tripped-out Richie Havens – with similar acoustic elements, yet a lot more percussion and groove in the end. Titles include "Seance In The Sixth Fret", "You Don't Know What's Going On", "The Vision", "Mamma Loi Papa Loi", and "Dambala".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Delegation
Mercury, 1980. Very Good+
A sweet bouncy groover – one of the rare albums of modern soul cut by the group Delegation! The group in this incarnation are a trio – Ray Patterson, Ricky Bailey, and Bruce Dunbar on vocals – stripped-down harmonically, a perfect fit for the album's groove-heavy arrangements. ...

Ohio Players

Ohio Players Gold
Mercury, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
A well-titled set – as it's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold! Their move to Mercury Records from the smaller indie Westbound was a real winning move – as it gave them a smoother soul feel that only expanded their groove, not restricted it! ...

Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
Beautiful beautiful work from The Chi-Lites – and a record that we might even say tops the best of their late Brunswick book! Despite the move from that label to Mercury, the group have a sound here that's still wonderfully fragile and harmony-focused – especially on the mellower cuts, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Bristol

Feeling The Magic
MGM, 1975. Very Good
Great stuff from one of the unsung heroes of 70s soul! The record's a bit rawer than some of Johnny's earlier work – and it's got a sexy cover that puts him more in the camp of Roy Ayers or Leroy Hutson, at least from a visual perspective! The whole album was written and produced by Johnny ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1970. Very Good+
The beginning of an amazing run on RCA for vocalist Jon Lucien – working here in a sublime blend of styles that's way beyond simple soul or standard jazz!
