Super Natural

LP (Item 50360) Polydor, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+

A fantastic record – one of Birdsong's rare early ones, with a messed-up approach to funk that he rarely matched again! The album was cut at the time Birdsong was working with Roy Ayers – but it was produced by Birdsong himself, and he also handled all the keyboards on the set. The group's a stripped-down combo, without the slicker sound of some of his later work – and there's a fuzzy funk approach to most of the best tracks, with lots of guitar and bass. Titles include "If I Ever", "Any Color", "Rising Sign (Funky)", "Flow Through My Heart", "Turn Around Hate (Communicate)", "I Love You Michelle", "Tune From Callicoon", and "Last Exit Before The Toll".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Cover has a cut corner, surface wear, a split bottom seam with some staining, and some splitting on the top seam.)

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.

James Brown

People
Polydor, 1980. Very Good
Late 70s James, and a little bit more up-tempo and clubby funky, but still some decent stuff from The Godfather. Includes "Don't Stop the Funk", "Let the Funk Flow", "Stone Cold Drag", and "Are We Really Dancing". LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Lifetime Thing
Polydor, 1981. Very Good
Sure, it's not the Stax years – but Ike's still doing ok on some of this stuff! The record comes during his Polydor years, when Ike was trying for styles that were both club-oriented and pitched more towards the smooth soul scene – and although the club stuff on this record doesn't ...

Isaac Hayes

Don't Let Go
Polydor, 1979. Very Good
Wonderful later work from Isaac Hayes – a gem from his Polydor years that has a good mix of mellow cuts and more upbeat numbers! The record has 3 long "quiet storm" tracks that take off on Ike's earlier expanded ballad style (forged on tracks like "Walk On By") – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

You Send Me
Polydor, 1978. Near Mint-
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bionic Boogie

Bionic Boogie
Polydor, 1977. Near Mint-
The first album by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie group – and a cooker of a set that follows strongly from Gregg's previous Hot Butterfly gem! Luther Vandross isn't on board this time around, but the overall groove is still totally great – upbeat, soaring, and put together with a jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown

Get On The Good Foot
Polydor, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A really great double-length set from James Brown – maybe slightly less iconic than some of his other classics from the early 70s, but a record that really shows the man stretching out and finding his groove! The whole thing is a great example of the new freedoms that Brown was experiencing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peaches & Herb

Twice The Fire

Intruders

Energy Of Love
Philadelphia International, 1974. Very Good+
A fantastic album from The Intruders – their last full record as a group, and a set that really shows all the growth they'd experienced as a harmony group in just a few short years! We love their early singles, and even their previous album for Philly International – but there's also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arista, 1979. Very Good
Not just disco nights, but some great mellow moments too – a wonderfully well-rounded classic from this great quartet – as tight and groovy as it is cool and classy! By the time of this debut, the group had already had plenty of 70s soul experience as The Rhythm Makers – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Edmund Sylvers

Have You Heard
Casablanca, 1980. Very Good+
A polished bit of LA soul, with lots of jazz players (Fred Jackson, Dorothy Ashby, Bobby Bryant) in the arrangements, and a number of smooth uptempo tracks that don't really make it as well as they might in the hands of another artist. Tracks include "Time", "I Choose You", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Vera & Judy Clay

Storybook Children
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
One of the only few albums to ever feature the vocals of Judy Clay – a wonderful deep soul singer who also cut a handful of excellent singles for Stax in the late 60s! Like some of that work – specifically her Stax duets with William Bell – this set really showcases Judy's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gordy, 1983. Very Good+
One of the crown jewels of the Rick James empire – back when he had an empire! Stone City Band were a slap-bass modern soul combo, with a definite 80s groove sound that had strong ties to James' own funky style. Their best moments on here, though, are actually the mellower ones – as ... LP, Vinyl record album
