LP, Vinyl record album

(€6.71 || £5.96 || ¥888) (approx.)

A surprisingly nice reworking of the Gershwin score – and Ray and Cleo are a surprisingly nice match on vocals! (Includes booklet.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Phase Two
RCA, 1972. Very Good+
Probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record. The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Birth Day
RCA, 1972. Very Good
Great early stuff by the New Birth – with a sound that's a lot funkier than some of their other records! The sound of the album shows how the band had a great formula for taking original tracks and covers, and redoing them with their unique group sound that gave them a good party feel. This ...

RCA, 1983. Very Good
Excellent work by Glenn Jones – even if the record is only a 5 track EP! The set is one of those strange little records issued in the early 80s, when the music industry was trying to figure out a way to make money between the ever-escalating cost of the LP and the less-popular 12" ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1974. Very Good
Hard funky soul from The New Birth – still sounding pretty raw at this point, and with that funky group ensemble feel that you'll hear on their best early albums! The tracks have plenty of nice guitar and clavinet work, and a shifting lead vocal approach that's pretty great on most cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1964. Very Good
A classic live album – one of the first in soul music, and a beautiful set of smooth soul tunes from Sam Cooke! Sam's singing at the high-end nitespot The Copacabana – and like many live sets performed there, this one's tailored a bit to the classy crowd at the show – but that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rashida
RCA, 1973. Good+
Amazing work from the great Jon Lucien – and probably his best-ever record! The album has Jon hitting a totally unified vision of spacey soul – bringing in elements of Brazilian music and touches of his Carribean roots, fusing them together with a sweet jazzy style and one of the most ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mind's Eye
RCA, 1974. Very Good-
Music beyond description or definition – one of Jon Lucien's legendary albums for RCA – a true pinnacle in the generation of sophisticated 70s soul! The sound here is a unique blend that's never been heard before – and hardly ever since, even though many have tried – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1961. Very Good
A stodgy cover, but a great groover – raw instrumental dance soul from sax great King Curtis – recorded for RCA in 1961 – really great, energetic covers of big band numbers and more in a hard grooving R&B mode! Don Covay and others sing on the "Twist" tunes – ... LP, Vinyl record album
On The Line
RCA, 1983. Near Mint-
Sparkling early 80s soul groove from Michael Wycoff – working here with Webster Lewis on keys and in the production booth – in a pumped up mode that's different from Wycoff's earlier albums! Wycoff's getting a new sound here – the bass groove at the core is tight and thumping, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wisdom
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
A tough one to peg. The album's got a sort of heavily orchestrated sound (instrumentation includes guitars, brass, strings, ARP 2600, Fender Rhodes, congas, etc.), in the same vein as some other RCA soul albums from the same time (most notably those by Jon Lucien), and some lyrics that are a ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1975. Near Mint-
Nice collection of some of the earlier raw funk cut by this huge collective for RCA. Almost all of the numbers were arranged, if not produced by Harvey Fuqua, and there's no shortage of choppy guitar, quacking clavinet and rolling rhodes lines. Includes "I Can Understand It", "It's ... LP, Vinyl record album
