Giant Step/De Ole Folks At Home

LP (Item 559628) Columbia, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

(70s pressing. Cover has ring and edge 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.

Taj Mahal

Brothers
Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
One of the better records that Taj Mahal cut during in the later 70s – probably because it was a soundtrack, and pushed the groove into some interesting places – with Taj's gruff vocals working over some Caribbean rhythms and modern blues, and more smoothed out moments! The latter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Albert King

King Albert
Tomato, 1977. Sealed
A tight date from 1977, and one that follows nicely in the spirit of King's later Stax sides, but with a slightly smoother groove. There's a bit of the Detroit 70s mode going on in the set – that rough-and-smooth quality that you'd find on a Don Davis production, which proves to be a ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee Hooker

Mad Man Blues
Chess, 1950s/1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A massive collection of John Lee Hooker work for Chess Records – with titles that include "Ground Hog Blues", "Down At The Landing", "Louise", "Walkin The Boogie", "Worried Life Blues", "Hey Boogie", "You Know I Know", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Williams

Raw Unpolluted Soul
Supreme Blues/Rah-El, Early 70s. Good
Messed up funky blues from drummer Willie Williams – here leading a Chicago group that includes work by Pinetop Perkins, Eddie Taylor, Roy Lee Johnson, Carel Bell, and Little Mack. There's no all-out funk tracks on the record – but it does have a soulful edge overall, especially in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Bland

Spotlighting The Man
Duke, 1967. Very Good-
Fantastic stuff, like all of Bobby's early Duke albums, and a breathtaking mix of soul and R&B, with some nice jazzy touches in the arrangements. Tracks include "Wouldn't You Rather Have Me", "Ask Me Nothin' About The Blues", "Gotta Get To Know You", and "You ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Bland & BB King

Together Again – Live
MCA, 1976. Very Good- Gatefold
Titles include "Let The Good Times Roll", and lots of medley numbers of classic blues! LP, Vinyl record album
Parrall, Late 70s. Very Good+
Albert's playing live here – in case you can't guess from the title – at an unspecified "blues festival", in an odd little album that's issued without any real notes or details on the set – the only record we've seen on the Chicago-based Parrall label. Tracks are ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1975. Very Good
Brilliant later work by Bobby Blue Bland – done with backings that are much fuller than on his earlier albums – a mixture of strings and horns that really expand the sound! That doesn't keep things from being soulful, though – as Bobby's in incredible form vocally, really rising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Eargasm
Columbia, 1976. Sealed
A landmark album from Johnnie Taylor – a set that not only gave his career a giant boost, but which also helped shift southern soul into hip new territory in the late 70s! The music's a great change from Taylor's previous work at Stax – and the set features warm production from Don ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stratavarious

Stratavarious
Roulette, 1977. Very Good+
A great album of jazzy club tracks – put together by John Usry Jr, who'd done some work with other 70s club acts like Three Degrees, Love Committee, and First Choice. Most of the tracks on the record feature female backing vocals – in the style of work by those other groups – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan

Chaka
Warner, 1978. Near Mint-
The classic late 70s solo debut by Chaka Khan – one that made Chaka a major star, and deservedly so! This beautiful album showed that she could stand very well on her own two feet without the help of Rufus, thank you. Of course, she's got some fantastic help from Arif Mardin, who works as ...
