Find My Way Back

LP (Item 50482) Charly/Motorcity (UK), 1990 — Condition: Very Good+

A surprising reunion for Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers – part of the late 80s run of Motorcity titles that offered new recordings of famous Motown artists! The set's definitely different than Bobby's work from the group in the 60s, but still pretty great – and Taylor's lead has this raspy charm amidst the album's smoother modern soul arrangements – a quality that's especially nice on the mellower cuts. Oddly, the backing vocals often seem to be female chorus singers, not the harmonies you might expect from the old days – and titles include "All Strung Out", "Does Your Mama Know About Me", "Find My Way Back", "Window Of My Heart", "Down To Love Town", and "Do Unto Others".  © 1996-2019, 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.
