Man Can Give It – But He Can't Take It

LP (Item 575300) LaJam, 1988 — Condition: Very Good

(Cover has some ring & edge wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

A set of revival blues by Sunnyland Slim – cut for the late 60s crowd with a host of different players that include Luther Allison, George Smith, Curtis Tillman, Shankey Jake, and even Big Mama Thornton, who plays drums on one track!

Howlin Wolf

London Sessions
Chess, 1970. Very Good+
A famous date that showcases the Chess Records influence on the sound of the Brit rock scene – one that has a number of key players "giving back" to the label, and working on a special date with Howlin Wolf! Wolf's rough vocals are in the lead on all tracks, and he also plays a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bluesway/ABC, 1973. Very Good+
Earlier recordings by Jimmy Reed, most likely done at the end of the 60s – but issued here for the first time in this 1973 package by Bluesway. Jimmy's working here in a mode that's almost rootsier than his more famous work for Vee Jay – singing with a really rough edge, and playing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chicago Blue Stars

Coming Home
Blue Thumb, 1969. Near Mint-
A very cool group – with Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica, Fred Roulette on electric steel guitar, Louis Myers on electric guitar, Skip Rose on piano, Jack Myers on bass, and Fred Below on drums – working with Chicago roots, but recording in late 60s LA! Vocals are by Rose and Louis ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
BB King hips up his groove a bit here – picking up some of the crossover soul and rock touches used by contemporaries over at Chess/Cadet, and expanding his sound with a range of guests that include Leon Russell, Joe Walsh, and Carole King! Despite the presence of these bigger names, the set' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Witherspoon

Hunh!
Bluesway/ABC, 1969. Very Good
An unusual little album for Jimmy Witherspoon – much more down-home than most of his earlier recordings, in a style that's got a rootsy feel that's quite unusual, especially given that Jimmy was always equal parts blues and jazz singer on other sets. The move seems to be a clear attempt to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Olympic, 1967. Near Mint-
Some groovy backing here – a trio with Jimmy Bond on bass, Earl Palmer on drums, and John Ewing on trombone! LP, Vinyl record album

Imaginations

Imaginations
20th Century, Mid 70s. Very Good+
An excellent group soul from Chicago – and no wonder, since The Imaginations were previously Brighter Side Of Darknes, a sublime falsetto harmony group who had a huge hit in 1972 with "Love Jones". This record's very much in the vein of that song – but also features a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

Fever
Polydor, 1979. Very Good+
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1974. Very Good+
Standout work from The Younghearts – one of the best harmony soul groups of the 70s to record away from the east coast. The group's vocals are the strongest thing about the record – but they get a great extra push from Vernon Bullock, who produced and conducted the record with a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1966. Very Good+
A rare Atlantic LP from the 60s – one that showcases two different sides of singer Mary Wells, in a mode that's different than her work for other labels! The "two sides" in the title are Mary's soul side and her more sophisticated one – the former served up in a batch of ... LP, Vinyl record album
