Soul Of Paul Mauriat

LP (Item 52171) Philips, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Pre-funk for Paul Mauriat – but definitely showing a desire to break out of the easy French instrumental style that made him a hit in the 60s. Mauriat turns his slightly bouncy instrumental mode to some American soul hits – picking up some nice grooves as he works through tracks that include "Respect", "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me", "You Keep Me Hangin On", "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", and "Love Child".

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.

St. Giles Cripplegate
Warner, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
A very high-art moment for Jack Nitzsche – and a set that prefaces most of his famous soundtrack work to come! The album's completely different than Jack's earlier work in the 60s – and is more of a full-scale orchestral session, done with the London Symphony Orchestra, and featuring ...

Sounds Of Love
A/S, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
Breathy, sexy pop stuff from 101 Strings, featuring a nice remake of "Je T'Aime...Moi, Non Plus", with vocals by Bebe Bardon. Sexy gatefold package, too, and very different than their other records. More of a sexy easy pop sound than usual, with covers of "This Guy's In Love With ... LP, Vinyl record album

LOVE
Philips, Late 60s. Very Good
A set that's got a wonderfully warm sound – and lots of those cool Paul Mauriat keyboard lines – played both on acoustic piano and harpsichord, plus some hip organ as well! The tunes are familiar, but they're re-arranged with some nice French hipness – and amidst the strings, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Environments–Disc 7
Atlantic, 1976. Sealed
Two sets "Intonation" and "Summer Cornfield", can (the label claims) "Actually Help You Meditate...Even if You've Never Meditated Before!". As the notes say, play at any speed, for different psychological effects. LP, Vinyl record album
Exotica Vol 2
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
The second album in Denny's legendary Exotica trilogy – a set of records that provided the extreme definition of the small sub-genre that today has become the stuff of legend! Denny's still working here in his classic format – a small group with heavy piano lines, playful percussion, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Switched On Beatles
Mushroom, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Some very groovy and fairly ambitious moog takes of Beatles tracks, using moog, arp, and other cool electronic instrumentation. The lineup's mostly late Beatles stuff with a trippy feel, like "Your Mother Should Know", "Strawberry Fields", and "Penny Lane", and many ... LP, Vinyl record album
Taboo
Promenade, Late 50s. Very Good+
Percussive exotic material, with lots of drums and chanting, in the style of work by Chaino, or some of Sabu's less jazz-oriented stuff. The back cover has photos of the session, which give it a very savage party sort of look – but the overall effect is that of a tamer, almost ethnographic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hair Styles
Atco, 1969. Near Mint-
One of the grooviest of the "Hair" tribute LPs, and an excellent batch of funky tracks from Galt MacDermot's classic score. Terminal Barbershop is really just a group of funky studio musicians that includes Jimmy Owens, Joe Farrell, and Pat Rebillot, and they play with a nice tight pop ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cop Show Themes
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the funkiest albums ever from Henry Mancini – a brilliant reworking of hit 70s cop show themes, put together with a really jazzy groove!
