It Looks Like Snow

LP (Item 560333) Columbia, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-
There's nobody at all like Phoebe Snow – and on a 70s album like this, she more than earns her place in pop music history! The set's a great criss-crossing of so many styles – the jazzy inflections of Snow's vocals, the warm production of mid-70s Columbia Records, and the nice undercurrent of soul that comes from the good choices of studio musicians – not to mention the familiar acoustic guitar that Phoebe knows how to use in just the right ways – always free from any folksy cliches of the previous generation. Titles include "Autobiography", "Don't Let Me Down", "Shakey Ground", "Teach Me Tonight", "Mercy On Those", and "Stand Up On The Rock".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed sleeve, which is wrinkled a bit. Cover has some ring and edge wear.)

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.

Phoebe Snow

Against The Grain
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint-
Phoebe Snow's definitely against the grain here – laying out some surprisingly thoughtful, personal lyrics – but all in the space of more familiar 70s pop music! There's a bit more polish here than at Phoebe's roots, but things are never overdone – and the album's balanced ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Take A Look
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good+
One of the most deeply soulful of Aretha's Columbia albums – and a record that really has her opening up in a hard-hitting style! Some tracks still have a bit of a jazzy flourish, almost in a Gloria Lynne or Esther Phillips approach, but overall the whole album's got a style that prefaces ... LP, Vinyl record album

Manhattans

Manhattans
Columbia, 1976. Very Good
A Philly soul classic from The Manhattans – one of their best 70s albums, and a record that showed that they were firmly out of the indie ghetto, and totally on top of their game! The record features arrangements and production by Bobby Martin and Bert DeCoteaux – bubbling along in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cheryl Lynn

In The Night
Columbia, 1981. Very Good+
One of Cheryl Lynn's early killers for Columbia – an album of tight, bouncy, joyous soul all the way through – free from any of the too-commercial touches that sometimes slowed Cheryl's later work! Ray Parker Jr produced the set – and he as well is free from the slicker sounds of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marlena Shaw

Sweet Beginnings
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+
A real classic from Marlena Shaw – a key 70s album that has the singer moving back to soul after some years in the jazz side of the spectrum – but with an approach that still holds onto all the sophistication she picked up along the way! The record's got some wonderful arrangements and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Late 70s. Very Good+
A great little album of tracks by one of the 70s greatest soul groups – featuring material from mostly their late 70s years at Columbia, plus a few other ringers thrown into mix it up a bit. Features the slow jam classic "After The Love Is Gone", the disco groover "Boogie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gladys Knight & The Pips

Touch
Columbia, 1981. Near Mint-
Gladys Knight & The Pips sounding fresh and revitalized for the 80s on Touch from '81 – a batch of tunes both produced and penned by Ashford & Simpson! It's a pretty sweet mix of clean grooving, smoothed out soul gems and others with some strings and kind of bigger arrangements that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Willis

My Story
Columbia, 1950s. Near Mint-
Take it way, way back to the old, old school with this collection of Chuck Willis' classic R&B, with 14 tracks in all, including "Don't Deceive Me","I Feel So Bad", "My Story", "Two Spoons Of Tears", "Caldonia", "You're Still My Baby", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love Deluxe

Here Comes That Sound
Warner, 1979. Near Mint-
Nice disco stuff from Alan Hawkshaw! Hawkshaw arranged and produced the whole record – and it's got lots of sexy keyboard and production work. Most cuts have vocals, but the real strength is Hawkshaw's instrumental work – honed to perfection after years of working with Serge ... LP, Vinyl record album

Skyy

Skyy
Salsoul, 1979. Near Mint-
Sure, at the time the group's silly costumes and slap-bass funk sound were a bit too much to take – but from the perspective of a few decades later, they actually had a pretty darn nice 80s groove kind of sound, and this first album's not a bad one for the dancefloor. Titles include "Thi ... LP, Vinyl record album
