Lady

LP (Item 51011) MCA, 1984 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
One Way — Lady ... CD 13.99

An overlooked gem from the ever-strong years of One Way – that early 80s run when the group kept on putting out great records! The vibe's changed up a bit from before, but that's one of the things that makes One Way so great – that they were kind of an evolutionary act, always drawing the best from the members of the ensemble at the time – and keeping things dynamic so their sound kept growing along with their listeners! Kevin McCord's the main force here – writing, arranging, and producing most of the set – and giving things a groove that's tight, but never as commercial as other 80s soul acts were hitting at the time. Titles include "Don't Stop", "Mr Groove", "Dynomite", "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love", "Smile", and "If You Only Knew".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and a cutout notch.)

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.

One Way

Shine On Me
MCA, 1980. Very Good
A great batch of boogie from One Way – one of the few late 70s funky combos who were especially well suited to make the transition to 80s groove! The sound here is more electric and keyboard-heavy than previous One Way records – but the group's trademark soul-heavy approach to groove ... LP, Vinyl record album

One Way

Fancy Dancer
MCA, 1981. Very Good
A great little set from One Way – post disco Detroit dancefloor soul of the first order! There a crisp, tight bubbling sound that's pretty wonderful – and warm in the spots where so many records of the period and cold and mechanical. The tunes bounce along nicely with production from ...

Alfonzo Surrett

Comin Out
MCA, 1980. Very Good
A great bit of boogie from the Chicago scene of the early 80s – a set recorded with a nice jazzy bounce overall, and a strong ear for a catchy hook and tight groove – very much in the mode of Omni or Zoom from the same period! Alfonzo's got a warm vocal style that soars up to falsetto ... LP, Vinyl record album

MCA, 1973. Very Good-
They still ain't got no band, and they're still riding along at the height of their acapella success – one that was no doubt due to rising mainstream interest in older musical modes as part of the rock and roll revival of the post-Woodstock years – something that probably helped the ...

Stargard

Stargard
MCA, 1978. Very Good
The debut album from Stargard – a set that turned the trio into strong soul stars, after a brief and mistaken role in the film Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band! Given the failure of that cinematic endeavor, it's amazing that MCA signed the girls up – but it's also clear that the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Robert Brookins

In The Night
MCA, 1986. Near Mint-
The debut album from Robert Brookins – an artist who first made waves in the group Afterbach, and who also had close ties to the Earth Wind & Fire galaxy in the 80s! This set's got a tightness that definitely belies Robert's years working in the studio for other artists – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
