HMS Donovan

LP (Item 526236) Dawn (UK), 1971 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

Beautiful work from Donovan – a long double-length set done for the hip Dawn label, with production by the man himself – very different than some of his 60s work with Mickie Most! Some of the songs are from poetic sources, and woven together with a special magic that only Donovan could provide – often spare instrumentation, which really lets his amazing voice take center stage – bringing a core of sinister to some of the simpler moments.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Purple label UK pressing, with poster! Poser has some light aging, and cover has some very light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

A collection of funky tracks recorded by The Players when the were with Westbound, but released later, when they hit Mercury.

Sonny Rollins

East Broadway Run Down
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most free-wheeling Sonny Rollins albums of the 60s – an album that features some very long, extended tracks that really break out from some of the straighter moments of Sonny's mid-60s recordings! The title track is an incredible 20 minute workout – one that almost feels ... LP, Vinyl record album

Power & Light
Cadet, Early 70s. Sealed
One of the deeper soul albums recorded for Cadet – an obscure record with an ensemble vocal feel – clearly inspired by gospel, but done for the hipper soul audiences of the time.

Keni Burke
Dark Horse, 1977. Near Mint-
The first great solo album from Five Stairstep Keni Burke – really recreating himself as a completely different sort of artist – one who's all grown up, and able to work in this jazzy approach to modern soul that's completely great all the way through! Keni produced the record himself ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1979. Near Mint-
One of the many 70s "children" of Earth Wind & Fire – and an obscure righteous soul combo from the east coast! The group's led by Osiris Marsh – who wrote all the tracks, and sings vocals over the group's bass-heavy keyboard-driven grooves. The record's not as great as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria Jones

Share My Love
Motown, 1973. Near Mint-
A heavy heavy set from Gloria Jones – a record that features some killer Paul Riser arrangements that are right up there with the deepest Motown work of the early 70s! Jones' groove is always a bit different than most of her contemporaries – not the usual Motown bag, and really far-reac ... LP, Vinyl record album
