Aladdin

LP (Item 5748) Cadet, 1974 — Condition: Very Good-
Gatefold

Heavenly mystical soul from Rotary Connection! If you know the group, you know the deal already: Minnie Riperton sings vocals on a number of cuts, and the great Charles Stepney's producing and arranging, with a super-baroque style that's still light years ahead of most producers in pop! The record's got a dark mix of soul, rock, and easy sounds – and titles include "Life Could", "Teach Me How To Fly", "I Took A Ride", "I Feel Sorry", and "Magical World".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Curtis/Live!
Curtom, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold

Garnet Mimms

Roll With The Punches
Charly (UK), Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A killer collection of work by Garnet Mimms – one of our favorite soul singers of the 60s, and a talent that we'd rank in the highest of the high in our soul book! The set is a well-done batch of tunes with a focus on groovers by Garnet – and includes some sock-hard numbers from his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bell, 1967. Very Good+
Great raw vocal group material by the Van Dykes – a southern male vocal trio with a style that covered a number of different areas, from hard post-doo wop harmony, to sweeter Impressions-like soul. We'd only heard a couple of the group's singles for the Mala label, and we're really pleased ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dramatics

10 1/2
MCA, 1980. Very Good+
The Dramatics hit an 80s groove mood here – and as on their clubbier sides from the end of the 70s, the vocals are still wonderful – and more than anything, the set's a strong soul-based set that still has the group at the top of their game! Ballads actually sparkle the best here ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Fleming Trio

Stand By
Argo, 1962. Very Good+
Incredible work from Chicago pianist King Fleming – a lost talent that had a key influence on more famous players in the scene, but who rarely got his due because he hardly left the Windy City! The set's got a really incredible feel – partly in the gentle groove of Ahmad Jamal, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A brilliant record by Sun Ra & The Arkestra – and an album that forever gave them a slogan to live by! The record's different than some of the other Arkestra work from the time – in that it's a bit tighter and more spiritual, more in keeping with the style of the Blue Thumb label, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Larkin & The Delegates

Pigmy
Aura, Early 60s. Very Good+
Killer stuff! This is one of Billy's earliest albums, and it's a monster batch of funky organ tunes with a much harder groove than on later works! The group is Billy's early Delegates trio – with Hank Swarn on guitar and Mel Brown on drums – and bad, bad grooves abound: including the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Nippon Soul
Riverside, 1963. Very Good+
A swingin' Japanese concert by one of Cannonball's best groups from the 60's. Joe Zawinul's on piano, brother Nat's on cornet, Sam Jones is on bass, and Louis Hayes is on drums. But the real treat here is Yusef Lateef, who does some excellent reed work on tenor, flute, and oboe – and who's ... LP, Vinyl record album
