Armed & Extremely Dangerous

LP (Item 5535) Philly Groove, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+

A landmark LP by this famous Philly trio who forever went onto change the face of club music! The record is pre-disco, but has a great strident soul sound, augmented by tight Norman Harris arrangements. Features the famous title hit – "Armed & Extremely Dangerous" – a great one in the "crime" soul subgenre, plus "Smarty Pants", "Newsy Neighbors", and lots more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(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.

Delfonics

Delfonics
Philly Groove, 1970. Very Good+
The third album in an amazing early run from The Delfonics – the kind of work that set a whole new standard for group soul in the 70s!

Johnny Reason

Johnny Reason
Fantasy, 1977. Very Good+
A lost bit of jazzy soul from the late 70s – produced by Wayne Henderson with the same great style as his other Fantasy Records sets at the time! There's some uptempo numbers, but our favorite cuts are the mellower ones – and the great Bobby Lyle plays some nice keyboard lines on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nite-Liters

Nite-Liters
RCA, 1970. Very Good+
The Nite Liters' classic first album, and a monster batch of funky instrumentals that we'd put up there with the great Meters records on Josie, or the classic JBs LPs on People. There's lots of hard drums, choppy guitars, and good funky grooves. The tracks are short and hard, with the kind of raw ... LP, Vinyl record album

More Marv Johnson
United Artists, 1960. Good+
Early Detroit soul – the second LP by the great Marv Johnson, one of the first talents to be supervised by a young Berry Gordy!

Rare Earth

Get Ready
Rare Earth, 1969. Very Good+
The first really major album from Rare Earth – issued on their own self-named subsidiary of Motown! The set's a perfect blend of the rich undercurrents of the heady Detroit scene of the late 60s – at one level a tripped-out rock record with styles that almost hint at MC5, at another ...

Cannibal & The Headhunters

Land Of 1000 Dances (Rampart pressing)
Rampart, 1965. Very Good+
One of the all-time Chicano Rock classics from LA – a soulful batch of party numbers from legendary east side group Cannibal & The Headhunters! The group scored big with their hit version of "Land Of 1000 Dances" – a thumping, bumping take on the tune that was a runaway ... LP, Vinyl record album

Festival

Evita
RSO, 1979. Very Good+
A loving take on this hit 70s musical – one that serves up all the best tracks in a sweet disco mode – and moves the sound from Broadway to the main floor of Studio 54! Festival present the material, but the key force here is disco maestro Boris Midney – who really helps craft ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ike & Tina Turner

Come Together
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Ike and Tina Turner crossed over big by this point in their career – grabbing a lot of ears that were mostly listening to rock music, but who finally got that many of their heroes were influenced by the pair – who were then throwing things back towards all their copycats with a record ...

West Madison Street, 1988. Good
A compelling collection of work from the Chicago scene of the late 80s – and a set that not only features some lesser-known house, but also a proto-hop hop track from The Village Crew! Other artists include "Two Of A Kind", "Kool Rock Steady", "Tyree Cooper", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Ace

Memorial Album
Duke, Early 50s. Good
The only full album from Johnny Ace – a key figure in the Memphis scene of the 50s, and one of the first great casualties of rock and roll! Johnny was one of the first singers to record for the legendary Duke label, and worked in a mode that helped transform the smoother style of the west ... LP, Vinyl record album

Interpreters

Knack
Cadet, 1965. Good+
Fantastic bit of lost Chicago jazz, featuring an incredibly tight and soulful combo made up of a bunch of obscure players who never really made it otherwise. The group features George Patterson on alto and soprano, Charles Kinnard (not Kynard) on tenor, Cleo Griffin on trumpet, and Tom Washington ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+
A strange one – but a relatively famous album of wine instruction – and one that's got a great presenation of the material!
