Pray On

LP (Item 541033) Epic, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good
Originally: 19.99
Rootsy material recorded for Epic in the 60s, before the group went over to Stax and started cutting secular soul! These sides are much more in a traditional gospel quartet mode – but the group's powerful vocals and strongly soulful approach makes the tracks rock with the strength of some of their secular material. Titles include "It's Been A Change", "Waiting For My Child", "Pray On", "John brown", "The Tramp On The Street", and "How Great Thou Art".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original yellow label pressing – nice and clean. Cover has two light pieces of tape, but is nice overall.)

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.

Destiny
Epic, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
A heavy groove and a heady title that points the way towards Michael Jackson's soon-to-be legendary solo career – all served up in a batch of tracks that resonate nicely with the Off The Wall groove! The sound here really isn't disco or club, but it's a nicely upbeat groove that shows The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1971. Near Mint-

On The Town
Epic, 1976. Very Good+
Classic club from Webster Lewis – and much more of an all-out disco affair than some of his later work!

Ohio Players

Climax
Westbound, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Funky madness from the early version of the Ohio Players!

Insides Out
Dakar, 1974. Near Mint-
A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual!
