World Of Ike & Tina – Live!

LP (Item 543015) United Artists, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
A fiercely funky live set from Ike & Tina Turner – one that almost feels like some of the James Brown albums at The Apollo – given the expanded structure of the presentation, which also includes the whole Ike Turner universe! The show gets announced with this bold sense of pride – ala some of James' "showtime" announcements – and it begins with funky backings from The Family Vibe, who continue the groove throughout – then opens to the Ikettes singing on their own, before Tina takes the stage and makes the whole thing really come together! There's a great variety of material here – all of which gets a really sharp sound, thanks to the setting – and Ike and the crew really transform the tunes, and set them up perfectly for Tina's vocals to knock them out of the park. Tracks include "Let Me Touch Your Mind", "Shaft", "I Gotcha", "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window", "Dust My Broom", "I Wish It Would Rain", "Get Back", "Games People Play", "Annie Had A Baby", "Chopper", "River Deep Mountain High", and "Just One More Day".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some ringwear, edge wear, and half split seams on one side.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Ike & Tina Turner

Best Of Ike & Tina Turner
Blue Thumb, 1973. Near Mint-
A combination of the best cuts from 2 of the last albums that Ike & Tina cut together – both of them very hard, raw, and soulful, with a good rootsy feel that makes them stand out against Ike & Tina's other albums from the time! There is a great little funk number included – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brass Construction II
United Artists, 1976. Very Good+
The second album from Brass Construction – heavy horns, basslines, and stellar dancefloor grooves – a stone classic! The first one was totally great, but they cast a wider stylistic claim on II – their trademark funky sound is still very firmly in place, but they bring more to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Best Of Little Anthony & The Imperials
United Artists/Veep, Mid 60s. Very Good
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled all the arrangments and ... LP, Vinyl record album

JR's cut some records that have a rootsier feel – but this one features smooth modern arrangements and production by Phil Medley and Buddy Scott. The set begins with an uptempo clubby remake of "Taste of Honey", and also features a nicely grooving take on "Stella By ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sins Of Satan

Future Star
United Artists, 1978. Very Good+
Nice second album by this band who's better known for their proto disco LP on Buddah. This one's got less of a disco feel, but it still has a sound that's mostly uptempo funk, with some good choppy grooves, and a few mellower soul cuts. Tracks include "Earl & Pearl", "Realize ...

War

War Live!
United Artists, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
War live, a perfect step forward – especially given that the group had already been so jamming on all their previous work in the studio! This classic double-length set may well be one of the best soul live albums of the 70s – right up there with similar 2LP packages from Curtis ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1975. Very Good+
Post-Polygram, but still some nice funkiness from this classic 70s group. The record's got much of the feel of their early 70s work – with lots of tasty electric keyboards, soulful percussion, and an always-driving groove. Titles include "Disco Lypso", "Honey Butt", ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1971. Very Good
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dutch Robinson

Nothin's Got Me
United Artists, 1977. Very Good+
A nice bit of late 70s southern soul from singer Dutch Robinson – best known for his early work with the Ohio Players! The session gets a little boost from some strong Horace Ott arrangements – full and rich, but never too slick – and the album features 9 tracks in all, including ... LP, Vinyl record album
