Saturday Night Fever

LP (Item 547406) RSO, 1977 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold
Also available
Bee Gees, Tavares, Yvonne Elliman, & Others — Saturday Night Fever ... CD 6.99

Yes, it was a mega-hit – and yes, it was one of those records that everyone who lived through the 70s seemed to own at one time – but after all these decades, you can't deny the power of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack – especially for the way that it mixed club soul classics with new original material! Obviously, the Bee Gees cover placement make them big stars of the record – but the set's also got some great early disco gems – like "Open Sesame" by Kool & The Gang, "Disco Inferno" by The Trammps, "KJEE" by MFSB, "Calypso Breakdown" by Ralph MacDonald, "Fifth Of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy, "If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman, "Boogie Shoes" by KC & The Sunshine Band, and "More Than A Woman" by Tavares. The Bee Gees reinvent themselves from the early days – and sing "Stayin Alive", "How Deep Is Your Love", "More Than A Woman", "Jive Talkin", "You Should Be Dancin", and "Night Fever" – and the set also features a few instrumentals by David Shire – "Manhattan Skyline", "Night On Disco Mountain" and "Salsation".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has 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.

Linda Clifford

Let Me Be Your Woman
Curtom/RSO, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Linda Clifford goes a bit over the top with this one – a lavish double-length set, of the sort that ended up bankrupting the Curtom label during the late 70s! Linda's very much in full-disco mode, singing to long clubby arrangements by Gil Askey that have more strings than before – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Skipworth & Turner

Skipworth & Turner
Warner, 1986. Near Mint-
A really great later Patrick Adams production – done for the always catchy duo of Rodney Skipworth & Phil Turner, a real bright spot in mainstream mid 80s soul! The pair really have a way with a tune here – building things as the tracks go along, but never in a way that's too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Teresa

Class Reunion
Dream, 1979. Near Mint-
An unusual retro-styled soul set done for Salsoul's short-lived Dream subsidiary – sung by Teresa in a set of modes that sometimes recall older music of years past, in keeping with her little schoolgirl look on the cover! The approach much be said to echo the influence of the 50s in the 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blackbyrds

Flying Start
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good
Not the band's first album – as you might think from the "start" in the title – but a classic batch of jazzy, funky, and soulful grooves from The Blackbyrds – one of those combos that few groups could match back in the 70s! The set's got a beautifully put-together feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
An excellent compilation that features wonderful material from the second genesis of the Brunswick empire – tunes from the time when they were hitting hard on the Chicago scene, working with Carl Davis to craft some of the best soul to ever come out of the Windy City! With "Love Makes A ... LP, Vinyl record album

Temptations

Reunion
Gordy, 1982. Very Good
An all-star effort from The Temptations – and a well-titled set that has the group brimming over with classic vocal talent! The group's expanded to a seven-piece outfit for the album – with Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin back in the fold, singing alongside Dennis Edwards, Otis ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Heroes
Motown, 1980. Very Good Gatefold
The Commodores tenth album – as you might guess from the big X on the cover – and a set that features some of the last great moments of Lionel Richie with the group! The album's a bit overlooked, but has a really great groove – kind of a middle ground between The Commodores' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

Mystic Voyage
Polydor, 1975. Very Good
An archetypal album by Roy – and one that really shows him at the turning point of his sound! Gone are the trippier jazz funk moments of earlier albums – and in their place are some tight grooves and wonderfully spacey soul. Roy hits the dancefloor with one of his first up-tempo funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Young-Holt Unlimited

Just A Melody
Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of a great run of grooves from the legendary team of bassist Eldee Young and drummer Redd Holt – a smoking batch of instrumentals done in the best Chicago soul style of the time! Young and Holt got their start in the early trio of Ramsey Lewis – but here, they've fully expanded to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Groove Holmes

Misty
Prestige, 1966. Near Mint-
One of the biggest hits of the 60s for Richard Groove Holmes – and for good reason too, given the title single of the record! After the success of Groove's version of "Misty" – originally issued in long form on the Soul Message album, but presented here as a shorter single ... LP, Vinyl record album
