Titles include "Back Street City Lights", "Do You Have Any", "Take The Load Off Me", and "I Wanna Make Music With You". (White label promo. Cover has large letters in marker on both sides & some light wear. Labels have some pen.)  © 1996-2018, 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.

Sweet Magic
AVI, 1978. Near Mint-
Moogy keyboards, disco grooves, and sweet female vocals make this a classic session from the Rinder & Lewis team – and the album's a lot better than you might think from the silly name of the group or the throwaway disco cover on the front! The keyboards really drive the album, hitting ... LP, Vinyl record album
Return Of Captain Sky
AVI, 1981. Near Mint-
Captain Sky returns for some more fairly long and jammy P-funk inspired grooves. The Captain has a core four piece of Chicago sidekicks on drums, bass, guitar, and keyboard on a couple of tracks, but the others are accented by a funky blend of strings, horns, and percussion arranged by Daryl ... LP, Vinyl record album
El Coco
AVI, 1982. Very Good+
A bit of a change for El Coco, but a great little set nonetheless – one that has the Rinder & Lewis team moving into more of a boogie mode than before, bringing up lots of bass from the bottom! There's almost a deeper sense of soul here than before – a modern soul vibe that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
K-Tel, 1973. Very Good+
The second volume of this series was even better than the first, and contains more hard funky stuff, like "Jungle Fever" by Chakachas, "Doin' It to Death" by the JB's, "Theme from Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Fencewalk" by Mandrill, and 16 other funky cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album
It's All In The Game
Dakar, 1974. Very Good+
Tyrone Davis takes on the legacy of Tommy Edwards with the title of this classic set – a record that seemed to unlock a whole new chapter in Tyrone's career! Davis had always been great from the start – singing in a sharp west side blend of blues and soul, often with all the best ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love's The Thing
Buddah, 1975. Very Good+
A really great step forward for Barbara Mason – a record that's got her working in a more mature mode than before, and a deeper soul style as well! One of the bigger developments of Barbara Mason's career was her participation in the "answer song" cycle that circulated around ... LP, Vinyl record album
So Good
Solar, 1984. Very Good+
Soaring uptempo soul from The Whispers – still going strong with the Solar sound well into the 80s – and stepping out here in a real hit-making style! The vocals are great, the grooves are solid – and there's a snapping, rhythmic feel to the first side – which is billed as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, Mid 70s/1985. Very Good+
Nice 80s comp of some of James' best funky tracks from the mid 70s with a lot of post-Payback gems that often get lost in the shuffle. Tracks include "Future Shock Of The World", "Funky President", "Bodyheat", "Your Love", "Get Up Offa That Thing", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Teddy Pendergrass
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good+
Teddy Pendergrass – we love you! This is one of Mr. P's greatest albums of smooth mellow soul – recorded after he left Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and began working in a wonderfully warm solo style that had a huge influence on male vocal soul for years to come! The sound here ... LP, Vinyl record album
Casablanca, 1982. Very Good+
An obscure album of uptempo funk – with a pretty straight dancefloor groove, and lots of bass pedal and keyboard work. The record's not as p-funky as the group's first, but it's not without some nice moments – as the record's got work by some good funky jazz players like Paul Jackson, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1979. Very Good+
An early 80s groover from Motown – produced by Anna Gordon Gaye, with a title that's quite possibly a reference to her divorce settlement from Marvin! The style of the work has touches of some of the rock that was creeping into Motown at the time – some heavier guitar, a bit of fuzz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Songs I Love To Sing
Mercury, 1959. Very Good+
Overlooked genius from Brook Benton – moving past his simple hit style here to work with arranger Belford Hendricks in a set of tunes that's a bit more "singerly". The tracks are mostly ballads and slower, sadder numbers – sung by Brook in a style that's slightly emotive, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
