Feelin Bluesy

LP (Item 53765) SOUL, 1968 — Condition: Very Good-

An amazing blend of raspy vocals, rumbling backings, and hip late 60s Motown soul – proof that Gladys Knight's move to the label was one of the smartest of her career! Thanks to top-shelf production here from Norman Whitfield, Gladys gets a newer sound that's ultra-hip – a bit deeper soul at times, but also with some of the more righteous overtones that Whitfield was bringing to other Motown acts at the time – a more pronounced sense of rhythm that really lets the lady and her backing group do their thing! Titles include "The End Of Our Road", "That's The Way Love Is", "I Know Better", "Don't Let Her Take Your Love From Me", "It Should Have Been Me", "Your Old Standby", and "What Good Am I Without You".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear, aging, and a split spine held with clear tape.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

All I Need Is Time
SOUL, 1973. Very Good+
A nice set that follows the soft southern mode that Knight virtually invented in the early 70s – a style that almost takes the earlier achievements of Aretha Franklin, and redirects them to a hipper, more adult audience for the new decade – and sometimes a crossover one at that!

SOUL, 1972. Very Good+
What a great record! This one seems to be nothing fancy at the outset – mostly covers of soul and pop tunes, done by The Originals in an early 70s harmony soul mode – but the overall quality of the record is incredible, with a mixture of rough and sweet vocals that sends just about ...
