On The Road Again

LP (Item 5549) RCA, 1976 — Condition: Sealed

Classic work from the great DJ Rogers – with a soaring, sweeping, righteous soul feel that reminds us of Rance Allen at his best, or of some of the smooth work of Lamont Dozier from the same time. DJ wrote, arranged, and produced all the tracks on this album, and the cuts have a slight nod towards spiritual gospel, with excellent jazzy touches that keep things in a modern vein. Titles include "Let My Life Shine", "Secret Lady", "Girl I Love You", "Say You Love Me, One More Time", and "Holding On To Love".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing, still sealed! Cover has a cutout notch.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

DJ Rogers

Love, Music & Life
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
Like all of DJ's RCA LPs, this one's a very nice batch of smooth mellow soul, with tight arrangments that have DJ on electric piano and other keyboards, and singing in his beautiful rich voice. Titles include "Love Is All I Need", "Saved By Love", "Love Is On The Way" ... LP, Vinyl record album

DJ Rogers

Trust Me
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+
Great stuff – and one of DJ Rogers' most perfectly realized albums! DJ's righteous approach from earlier records is firmly intact – but it's given a bit of a boost, in that perfect Columbia smooth modern mode of the late 70s, with a clear indication that Maurice White and the Kalimba ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1965. Very Good+
A stripped down, bluesy folk soul set of Dylan tunes by Odetta – returning some kudos to a kid who was hugely inspired by her earlier material in the late 50s – a really beautiful record and possibly one of the best ever Dylan covers albums! Odetta Sings Dylan is actually one of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1973. Near Mint-
One of the nicest early albums by this great 70s soul collective – featuring a strong mix of funk and mellow soul tracks, with backing by the Nite Liters on some tracks, and production by the great Harvey Fuqua throughout! Titles include "Wild Flower", "It's Been A Long ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pointer Sisters

Contact
RCA, 1985. Sealed
The Pointer Sisters in their slick, sultry pop soul mode of the mid 80s – at this point doing the synthesizer soul sound as well as ever – with big hooks and more subtle stylistic flourishes in the production! The Pointers were on one heck of a commercial win streak at this point, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Birth

Reincarnation
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
A mix of previously released tracks from the group's harder to find early albums, like "Unborn Child", "Don't Blame the Young Folks", and "You've Got to Be the One for Me", plus some other unissued tracks like "Sunshine Song", "What You Can Do", and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jose Feliciano

Feliciano!
RCA, Late 60s. Sealed
An amazing record! By all rights, this shouldn't be so good – but it's an incredible album of haunting tracks that really has us coming back again and again over the years. The formula is simple: Jose plays late 60s pop tunes on acoustic guitar, and sings them in his spacey soulful voice. ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1974. Sealed
Kind of a mixed bag of sorts from Jose Feliciano, but a nice one too – recorded in the same year as his sublime And The Feelin's Right album, but not as concise as that one – and more of a collection of different modes explored on Feliciano albums over the few previous years. Steve ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carolyn Franklin

I'd Rather Be Lonely
RCA, 1973. Very Good+
Classic soul from Aretha Franklin's hip sister – and quite possibly the most unified of all the Carolyn Franklin albums for RCA! This set's got some great arrangements from Wade Marcus – who blends together strings and soul in that solid way that Arif Mardin was using with Aretha at ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1979. Near Mint-
Featuring Evelyn Champagne King, Brothers, New York Community Choir, Vicki Sue Robinson, and Revelation. LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1972. Very Good
Excellent album that Harvey Fuqua put together with his old band during the time that he had emerged as a successful soul producer at RCA working with bands like The Nite Liters and The New Birth. The album features the group reprising some of their classic doo wop tracks, and giving them a 70's ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1962. Very Good
An album of twisting tunes, designed to cash in on the big craze of the early 60s – but also one of Sam Cooke's best full albums for RCA! True, most of the tracks have "twist" in the title – but that also means that they're nice groovers too – usually with the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album
