Like A Quiet Storm

LP (Item 50396) Dinky, 1983 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 38

A great LP of smooth jazzy soul from Freddy cole – recorded for a small (should we say "dinky"?) indie label, but with a warm mellow sound that's all pro! There's some great keyboards behind Freddy's vocals – nice and mellow on the best tracks – and titles include "Dancing Eyes", "Like A Quiet Storm", "I Need Your Love So Much", "All We Need is A Place", "You & I", and "He Was The King".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Now! Hear!
Prestige, 1964. Very Good
Wow! This is one of the totally rare albums that Andy and the Bey Sisters recorded for Prestige in the mid 60's. It's an amazing blend of their three soulful voices, with jazzy scatting takes on tracks like "Besame Mucho", "Sister Sadie", "Swinging Preacher", "Sm ... LP, Vinyl record album

Silver Morning
Warner, 1974. Near Mint-
Kenny Rankin at the height of his powers – working in an amazing blend of styles that includes bits of folk, jazz, and bossa – all wrapped together with a really warm feel overall! The album's got a somewhat full feel – but like Kenny's best work on his debut, there's a really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Right On!
Roker, Early 70s. Very Good
We're not entirely sure when this set was recorded, but Stroud Productions put the whole thing together, and it's a hard live set that seems to be from the early 70's. Nina's voice is in fine form, and she drives the crowd with hard hitting renditions of tracks like "House Of The Rising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Touch Of Tabasco
RCA, 1960. Very Good+
A surprisingly great little Latin set from Rosemary Clooney – one that makes us want to forgive her for all her pop takes on the genre in the early 50s! Backings here are by Perez Prado, who really brings a nice degree of "zing" to the session – kicking things up with that ... LP, Vinyl record album

People In Me
Inner City, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great session that was recorded in Tokyo in 1973 – featuring Abbey backed by a small group that includes Dave Liebman on sax and flute, Al Foster on drums, and Hiromasa Suzuki on piano. The record's pretty darn hip – and it's a nice version of Abbey's haunting approach to vocal jazz, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nina Simone & Piano!
RCA, 1969. Very Good
A strong back to basics session for Nina, one that featured her piano and vocals only, a very spare approach that was markedly different from her work a few years previously for other labels. Nina's tone on the piano is incredible – and she's working with some striking modern jazz changes ... LP, Vinyl record album

I've Always Been Country
Paramount, 1974. Very Good+
Although Ivory Joe Hunter always recorded a lot of country songs in his career (hence the title), his sound on those recordings was always similar to the Ray Charles, Brook Benton, Solomon Burke country soul sound – and not really straight country, which is what this album is. Still, Joe ... LP, Vinyl record album

Slewfoot
Buddah, 1974. Very Good+
A really bold step forward for Norman Connors – a set that's still got all the spiritual jazz elements of his roots, but which also adds in some more soul and funk elements too! Jean Carn delivers some wonderful vocals on the record – at a level that's much more like her early Black ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quick Step
Virgin (UK), 1975. Very Good+
Weird bit of funkiness from Virgin, with the sort of funk/jazz/rock crossover sound on a few of their other records from this period. There's lots of nice moogy bits and cool electric piano stuff. Vocals sometimes mess this up, but there's enough instrumental moments to keep it groovin'. With ... LP, Vinyl record album
