Lawrence Hilton Jacobs

LP (Item 5186) ABC, 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 9.99
Although he's always best remembered as Freddy "Boom Boom" Washington from Welcome Back Kotter, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs was pretty darn ubiquitous during the mid-70s! He was in more than a few movies (Youngblood, Cooley High, etc), and he even recorded a few soul albums – like this one, which features some nice production work by Lamont Dozier that more than makes up for Freddie's lack of conviction as a soul singer. At the best moments, the record reminds us of some of Lamont's strident grooving soul work for ABC – and titles include "Time Machine", "Larry's Theme", "Mister DJ", "Holdin On", and "Fly Away".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a promo stamp and is bent a bit at the top right corner.)

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.

Lee Dorsey

Night People
ABC, 1978. Near Mint-
A nicely evolved groove from Lee Dorsey – still working with tremendous production from Allen Toussaint, the man who brought him into stardom in the 60s – but with a warmer sound that's more 70s modern overall!

Reaching For The World
ABC, 1976. Near Mint-
A really great post-Philly International album from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – the group's first after the departure of Teddy Pendergrass, and a set that shows them hardly missing a beat! The group are still recording at Sigma Sound, with Melvin at the production helm – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

The second installment of one of Ray's greatest albums – and a landmark in the genre of country soul!

Main Street People
Dunhill/ABC, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Really nice work from The Four Tops – proof that they were still going quite quite strong after Motown!

LP, Vinyl record album

Denise LaSalle

Bitch Is Bad
ABC, 1977. Near Mint-
From the title of this one, you can tell that Denise is going for a bit of late 70s Mille Jackson action – mixing the rougher styles of her roots with some more sophisticated backings – all in a proto-feminist mode that always comes out with the lady on the top! Production is by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Nash

Studio Time
ABC, 1961. Very Good+
Very early work from Johnny Nash – singing here in a mix of vocal jazz and some of the soul styles that he would head towards in the years to come! Arrangements are by Sid Feller, who also produced. LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, 1964. Near Mint-
A classic live set from Ray Charles – one that equally showcases all the best sides of his sound in the mid 60s! The group's got a nice dose of jazz – which it shows right at the start – almost a mix of Basie swing and R&B, of the sort that Ray was sporting heavily in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Mayfield

Got To Find A Way
Curtom, 1974. Very Good
A great album that's often overlooked amidst the flurry of early 70's releases on Curtom, but which stands as one of Mayfield's greatest from the 70s! In fact, we'd say that the album's one that we enjoy putting on more than most – because the songs are less familiar, and not nearly as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Otis Redding

Tell The Truth
Atco, 1970. Near Mint-
In the years after his death, when Otis Redding had approached near-deity status, Atlantic was digging through their vaults (recently swiped from Stax!) to find whatever they could to put together a record. Fortunately, most of the material they came up with was great – as you'll hear on ... LP, Vinyl record album
