Renee Geyer (1977)

LP (Item 517058) Polydor, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.70 11

An obscure American album cut by Australian soul singer Renee Geyer – one of the country's greatest talents during the 70s, and an artist who was trying to crack the US market at the end of the decade. This one takes off from Renee's classic Ready To Deal album, with a smooth jazzy soul style that's part Chaka Khan, part crossover rock/funk, with a bit of LA studio jazz. The record features a remake of Geyer's huge hit "Heading In The Right Direction", plus a great modern soul track called "Be There In The Morning" (not the Brian Wilson song!) Other tracks include "Quicker Than The Eye", "Touch", and "Moving Along". (White label promo.)  © 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.

Rare funky live album by one of Australia's greatest soul acts ever! Renee Geyer's in great form, and her band is nice and tight in this slammin' live set that includes a few exclusive cuts, and a few tasty remakes of tracks that were on earlier albums.

Polydor, 1971. Very Good+
James Brown really opens up on this early 70s classic – really showing the world the amazing groove he was crafting with his band – who were let loose to jam in the studio, spinning out some really long grooves – which were then cut down to make this sweet little record!

Polydor, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor/Because (France), 1978. Sealed (reissue)
One of the coolest club projects of the 70s – a set of tracks based around the keyboards of Don Ray, but handled with lots of electronic disco touches from Cerrone! The pair are great arrangers on their own, but together they really make some magic – kind of a leaner take on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cherry Red, Mid 70s. Very Good+
Mid 70's live album by Rudy Ray Moore, and one of the few records of his that we've seen that isn't on Kent. There's a band backing him up, but they're sort of in the background, and you can't hear them that well because Rudy's thundering voice is booming out over tracks like "Hell Of A Blow ...

Playing Hard To Get
Spector, 1982. Very Good+
Not as sublime as some of Vernon's earlier work, mostly because the sound of the record's got a bit of that 80s flatness – but there's more than a few nice songs on here, still put together with that flair for a hook that Burch brought to most of his projects during the 70s. Titles include ... LP, Vinyl record album
