LP (Item 507184) Motown, 1990 — Condition: Very Good

...

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Gerald Alston

Gerald Alston
Motown, 1988. Near Mint-
Brilliant solo work from Gerald Alston – the first album issued under his own name, after a strong legacy of work with The Manhattans! Alston's vocals are wonderful here – beautifully crafted, with a sense of maturity and feeling that most of his younger soul contemporaries couldn't ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry Butler

Love's On The Menu
Motown, 1976. Very Good+
An overlooked sleeper from Jerry Butler – the kind of record that follows nicely off of his best strengths for Mercury in the early 70s – and which has him furthering the level of mature soul that was his greatest contribution to music in the decade! As before, the best tunes here are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ozone

Send It
Motown, 1981. Very Good+
Killer grooves from Ozone – an overlooked early 80s group on Motown, and easily one of the label's strongest suits of the time! The group have the tighter sound of most of the Motown work of the time – but they also manage a looser, more organic sort of approach to their groove – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Lovesmith

Rhymes Of Passion
Motown, 1985. Very Good+
Michael Lovesmith's got a look that places him strongly in the style of mid 80s Motown – but his sound on the record is definitely a cut above! Lovesmith wrote and arranged most of the material here himself – and he's definitely got the punch and power you'd expect from such a one man ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1965. Very Good
A strange twist for the girls – not really because the material's country, but because the tunes selected are the kind of country tunes that would often be done in kind of a deep soul mode. There's still a sparkling quality on the album – and the girls' approach to the tunes is less ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1977. Near Mint-
Proof that Jerry Butler could always be great, no matter what the setting – and that even an overlooked album like this can still be pretty darn great! The album's got less of a focus than Jerry's earlier Mercury work or later sides for Philly – but it's also got a subtle and sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
This one was kind of Motown's answer to the Wattstax albums – a double live set, recorded in Chicago during the Push Expo, headed by Jesse Jackson. The tracks here are more of a mixed bag than some of those on the deeper soul Wattstax albums, but there are some nice moments overall, buried ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1975. Near Mint-
Second UK volume in this series of Motown compilations aimed at the dancefloor – and in spite of the tile, the material here is more soul than disco, but definitely more in the dance vein than the get your groove on side of things. Not exactly disco, but solid all the way through, with 12 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moments

Sharp
Stang, 1978. Near Mint-
The Moments' last album for Sylvia Robinson, and kind of a mish-mash of styles and approaches – but also a record with some really nice moments! The group's harmony style is as smooth as ever – heading towards the more polished approach the trio would take as Ray Goodman & Brown ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stang, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Quite possibly The Moments' last good album, and a record that has them mixing a bit of funkiness into their usual style of sweet group soul. There's a mix of modern soul with some of the group's older styles – and the harmonies are as great as ever, perhaps more so because the production ... LP, Vinyl record album
