Let Me Live In Your Life

LP (Item 533373) Atlantic, 1978 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

Ben E King in a few different modes – all of them great, and a great demonstration of the continuing strengths he brought to his work at Atlantic Records in the 70s! The album features the work of three different production forces – Lamont Dozier, who serves up some sweet warm grooves that further King's great move to modern soul at the time; the team of Jim Stewart and Bettye Crutcher, who add in some deeper Stax-styled roots; and underground club genius Patrick Adams, who really makes some magic on one number! King holds strong in all these settings, and really rises to the top throughout – on titles that include "Wonder Woman", "Let Me Live In Your Life", "I See The Light", "Fly Away", "Fifty Years", "Spoiled", "Sweet Rhapsody", and "Dark Storm On The Horizon". (Cover has a cutout notch & some wear.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
