Natalie Live!

LP (Item 520531) Capitol, 1978 — Condition: Very Good
2LP Gatefold

Natalie Cole gets some great Chicago soul help here from Richard Evans and Gene Barge – who did the original arrangements – which are adapted by Don Hannah for performance, then conducted by Linda Williams! That's a mouthful, but under the guidance of Charles Jackson and Marvin Yancey on production, everything comes out mighty nice!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Natalie Cole

Don't Look Back
Capitol, 1980. Sealed
An overlooked gem from Natalie Cole – a set that still has her working strongly with songwriter Marvin Yancy, who really helped her find her sound and style during the early years of her career! Natalie actually helped with writing a fair bit on the record herself – sometimes with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Rawls with Les McCann Ltd

Stormy Monday (90s pressing)
Capitol, 1962. Sealed
One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album. Most of the numbers are bluesy ones, but as usual, Lou manages to give them his own hip twist ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eloise Laws

All In Time
Capitol, 1982. Near Mint-
Tremendous grooves from Eloise Laws – easily one of the hippest soul singers of her generation, and one with a great family legacy as well! The set features great jazzy production from Ronnie Laws – who warms things up with that perfect blend he brought to his own records too – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1966. Very Good
One of the greatest albums to ever sum up the genius of Lou Rawls in the 60s – a brilliant live set put together with the talents of David Axelrod! The record perfectly captures the easy-going soul of Rawls in the early years – a natural approach to his music that made him one of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1982. Near Mint-
One of the more new wave-oriented moments from Ava Cherry – a singer we know best from her solo work in soul, but who also has a pretty strong pedigree on the rock side of the spectrum as well! The instrumentation is heavy on keyboards – played by Mark Isham, in a way that sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Minnie
Capitol, 1979. Near Mint-
Minnie's last LP – or at least the last LP released while she was alive – and a wonderful batch of jazzy modern soul cuts that gives a good indication of the direction that Minnie might have gone in the 80s. The album's got plenty of great guest players – including Minnie's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1981. Very Good
A classic soulful fusion album on Capitol, recorded and released during the crucial years of the "Capitol Rare" sound! Gene Dunlap is a jazz drummer at heart – but he's got a flair for the modern soul song – and in the same style as Norman Connors or Harvey Mason before him, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tavares

In The City
Capitol, 1975. Very Good+
A mid 70s classic from Tavares – west coast group soul, sewn up tightly by the team of Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, who also wrote a good portion of tracks on the set! This is some seriously sublime stuff, working on a number of levels. The vocal arrangements are totally killer and on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ebonee Webb

Ebonee Webb
Capitol, 1981. Very Good
Bass-heavy funk from Ebonee Webb – one of the more all-out funk acts of the Capitol 80s groove scene – but a group who could also sound great on some of their mellower numbers! The group really put the bass and guitar work upfront in the tunes – and about half of the tracks on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1960s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album

Freda Payne

Stares & Whispers
Capitol, 1977. Near Mint-
Sweet club grooving from the legendary Freda Payne – a very different album than her initial hits for Holland-Dozier-Holland, and a set that has a mature mix of disco and modern soul! Production is by Tony Camillo and Frank Wilson – and the tracks are long and nicely stretched out ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown

Grits & Soul
Smash, 1964. Very Good+
One of the grooviest of the James Brown instrumental albums recorded for Smash. Unlike some of the other weaker albums on Smash, this one's got a great batch of material, most of which are originals, and not weak covers of pop tunes. Plus, the tracks are longer than usual, which gives the band a ... LP, Vinyl record album
