Naked Truth

LP (Item 567598) CBS, 1988 — Condition: Very Good+

A sweet late 80s soul set from Leata Galloway – a great singer with a strong musical theater background! Leata's voice is naturally deep, but her range is incredible – which allows her to bring both heavy strength and fragile delicacy, plus these incredible little vocal embellishments without ever laying it on too thickly. To put it succinctly, she's an impeccable singer and knows how to utilize her gifts – which sure makes us wish that she made more records! The production by Nick Martinelli and Preston Glass is nicely smooth and built to last, with some telling period touches, but those don't weigh it down one bit! Titles include "With Every Beat Of My Heart", "Fascination", "Shades Of Blue", "Cry Me A River", "I'm Scared Of You", "The Naked Truth", "One Of These Nights" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes inner sleeve. Cover has a hype sticker.)

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.

Malaco/CBS (UK), 1976. Near Mint-
A pivotal moment in the development of southern soul – as the album was one of the first really big hits to come out of the growing Malaco scene in Jackson, Mississippi.

Love Unlimited

Love Is Back
CBS, 1979. Near Mint-
Very nice comeback album by Love Unlimited, and one that still features Barry White at the helm. The music's a nice mix of midtempo modern soul groovers, with a lot of tracks that have an excellent steppers groove to them. With the cuts "I'm So Glad That I'm A Woman", "High Steppin ...

T Neck/CBS, 1976. Very Good
A very cool record – one done as part of a promo-only series from Columbia/Epic – with cover art that replicated the then-popular book titled Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask! 8 numbers from their mid 70s prime: "That Lady", "What It ... LP, Vinyl record album

Darrell Banks

Here To Stay
Volt, 1969. Near Mint-
Incredible work from the great Darrell Banks – one of the few albums this genius Detroit soul singer cut before his untimely early death!

James Brown

Soul Syndrome
TK, 1980. Near Mint-
A rare TK Records effort from James Brown – very much in the best uptempo funk mode of the later Polydor years! The groove here is quite similar to those better-known efforts – grooves that are a bit quicker than a few years before, but still played in a core JB funky style – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces

Searching For My Love
Checker, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A wonderful album of southern soul – and the only full-length LP cut by Bobby Moore and his long-lived Rhythm Aces combo!

Sylvester

Sylvester
Fantasy, 1977. Near Mint-
Sylvester's first album for Fantasy – a reworking of his older groove into one that we love more than any other that he ever used – a smooth modern soul style, not really disco, but with a driving approach that would certainly have worked well in the clubs! You gotta give Syl credit ... LP, Vinyl record album

JR Monterose

JR Monterose
Blue Note, 1956. Near Mint-
The only Blue Note album ever recorded by JR Monterose – one of the more enigmatic figures of the 50s scene! Montrose was a brilliant player, with a tone and a solo conception that were very unique – but he lapsed in relative obscurity, due to the fact that he had a penchant for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Doug Carn

Revelation
Black Jazz, 1973. Near Mint-
The Black Jazz recordings of Doug Carn are always a revelation – some of the most powerful, progressive work on the American underground of the early 70s – music that got Carn into way more record collections than you might expect! The sound here is a perfect summation of Doug's early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Desmond

From The Hot Afternoon
A&M/CTI, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
Incredible stuff – and a record that grows more and more important to us over the years! Desmond's best known as the icy alto behind Dave Brubeck's big records of the 50s, but by this point in his career, he'd developed a keen interest in Brazilian music – and was working at a level ...
