Diana Ross Live At Caesars Palace

LP (Item 517104) Motown, 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

A fantastic early demonstration of the solo powers of Diana Ross – a live date from Vegas, and one that has her commanding the stage not just as a singer of soul music, but as a female star ready to rival the talents of any of her contemporaries in the mainstream! Ross shines here with a brilliant brightness right from the start – working with a large ensemble that echoes all her best Motown roots, but which also pushes things out in fuller, more vibrant modes too – as Diana runs through tracks that include old soul favorites, jazz standards, and even some surprising choices from the charts – at a level that's filled with poise, class, and soul throughout. Titles include a great "Supremes Medley", plus "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Corner Of The Sky", "I Love You Porgy", "My Man", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", and a "Lady Sings The Blues Medley" with titles from the Billie Holiday songbook.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing in the die-cut cover, with light wear and a cutout notch.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Diana Ross

Swept Away
RCA, 1984. Very Good+ Gatefold
A surprising hit for Diana Ross – a record that really helped the singer shine brightly in the 80s, but with a vibe that's quite different than her years at Motown! The album's got plenty of star power on board – production work from Arthur Baker, Richard Perry, Daryl Hall, Lionel ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1970. Sealed
A great early solo set from Diana Ross – a record that still has some great echoes of her work with The Supremes, but an even bolder frontline approach on vocals! Most tracks here still have other female voices backing Ross up – some un-credited Supremes-esque vocals that really help ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

Eivets Rednow – Alfie
Motown, 1968. Sealed
A late 60s all-instrumental set from Stevie Wonder – and a record that shows a real change from his style in the earlier part of the decade – a much more mature move forward, and one that hints at the power of his arrangements in the 70s! As you might guess from the "Alfie" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1969. Very Good
Overlooked greatness from the late 60s years of The Supremes! Cream Of The Crop may not have been a huge hit for The Supremes, but the record has the group handling a variety of interesting work – mostly done in modes that bring the best Motown styles of the 60s into closer contact with the ...

Eddie Kendricks

Slick
Tamla/Motown, 1977. Very Good+
Smooth mellow grooves, in the style that Eddie pioneered, and which he still did better than most. The album's a great batch of tracks with production by Leonard Caston, who also produced some of Eddie's earlier works, and the set's pretty darn great all the way through. With the cuts "Someth ...

Temptations

Anthology
Motown, Mid 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ 3LP Gatefold
Features 3LPs worth of Temptations classics, with tracks recorded between 1964 and 1972. The album follows the group right up to their move to ABC, and includes classics like "Cloud Nine", "Just My Imagination", "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", "Ain't Too Proud To ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diana Ross & The Supremes

Funny Girl
Motown, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great little album from Diana Ross – maybe one of her lesser-known efforts with The Supremes, and a set that really points the way towards the solo years to come! One of the reasons for that is that the set really just features Diana out in the lead, with different backing singers behind ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackson 5

Maybe Tomorrow
Motown, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
A great early album by the Jacksons – with a monster batch of cuts arranged by Gene Page and The Corporation, all put together with a soulful groove that the group definitely lost on later albums! The highlight is the funky "It's Great To Be Here" – an excellent lesser-known ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jr Walker & The All Stars

Jr Walker & The All Stars Greatest Hits
SOUL/Motown, 1968. Near Mint-
Jr. Walker's deep soulful tenor graced many a Motown hit back in the 60s – including the dozen featured on this tasty "best of" compilation, put together back in 1968, from singles that were issued earlier in the decade. Includes the huge hit "Shotgun", plus "Home ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Jackson

Best Of Michael Jackson
Motown, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Michael's on lead vocals here – in a set of tracks that's all from the early 70s, when he was starting to break away from The Jackson Five, but was still mostly recording with them. 10 tracks in all: "Ben", "Got To Be There", "One Day In Your Life", "I ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1966. Very Good+
Symphonic soul from The Supremes – a set that still has the trio working with the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland team, but with a full set of orchestral backings that help them hit even more class and sophistication than before! The ballads have these really lush arrangements – never ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eloise Laws

Eloise
ABC, 1977. Near Mint-
The warm, sweetly grooving Eloise album from Eloise Laws – a nice bit of smoothly produced LA soul, with arrangements by Gene Page, and production by Linda Creed and Jerry Goldstein. Eloise's vocals are really wonderful here, exuding warmth something of relaxed approach to her singing that ... LP, Vinyl record album
