LP, Vinyl record album

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Killer funky stoner soul from LA! This album is one of the best by Charles Wright and his legendary funky group – and it features some straighter soul material, like the big hit "Loveland", or their mellow take on "Light My Fire" – plus some great heavy funk numbers, like "Till You Get Enough", "Everyday People", and "Must Be Your Thing". The record's a huge testament to the strength of the group – as they handle the soul material just as well as they do the funky stuff that they're more famous for – and we really dig this one for its tightness and straight ahead positive soul!

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Don't Burn Me
Warner, 1973. Near Mint-
One of the best records ever from deep soul singer Paul Kelly – a great talent from the Warner Brothers roster of the early 70s, and a vocalist who might have been more at home on late 60s Atlantic Records!

Zapp
Warner, 1980. Very Good+
The classic first album by this legendary funky combo – a group who not only went onto change the sound of funk in the 80s, but also went onto have a huge impact on generations of hip hop as well! The album burns from the very first note – the wicked snapping funk of "More Bounce ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hardcore Jollies
Warner, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the sweetest Funkadelic albums from the middle period, and a good batch of tracks that often gets overlooked in the haze of similar Pedro Bell covers!

Together
Warner, 1968. Very Good+
Mad mad funk, and the fantastic second LP by the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band – the group that proved to everyone that LA could be just as funky as any other city in the 60s! The record draws strongly from the group's indie roots in the funky 45 scene – and the album's filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Express Yourself
Warner, 1970. Very Good
A masterpiece of messed-up LA funk – and one of the crowning moments in the career of Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Charles and crew do an excellent job with all the tracks – most of which are more open ended than some of their earlier ones, and run on for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heart & Soul
Warner, 1966. Very Good+
A tremendous early album from Lorraine Ellison – one that mixes her deep soul roots with some sophisticated jazzy arrangements from Oliver Nelson – a blend that gives the record a wonderfully rich feel, right from the start! The style's somewhere in the territory of Nancy Wilson on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1974. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums ever from soul singer Paul Kelly – an overlooked talent who was given a great 70s run by Warner Brothers, but never fully got his due! Paul's got roots in southern soul, but works here in a slightly modern mode too – with production from Buddy Killen that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ultra Wave
Warner, 1980. Very Good+
Bootsy's tightening things up a bit from before, but still sounding plenty darn great – that classic Collins groove in all its P-Funk glory! All the best elements are certainly in place – production by George Clinton and Bootsy, horn arrangements by Fred Wesley, and the slinky soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maria Muldaur
Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark record from Maria Muldaur – quite different than the rougher folsky work she cut in the 60s – and done with a really warm studio sound that's pure 70s all the way through! Maria's working here with some older folksy contemporaries – like David Grisman, Ry Cooder, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Get Down Attack
Groove Time, 1980. Near Mint-
Uptempo funky stuff recorded for the obscure Groove Time label. There's a lot of funky keyboards on here (like mini moog, Clavinet, and Hammond B3), plus sax solos, and vocals on most cuts. Tracks include "Snake & The Worm", "Jungle Music", "LRJ Pop", "We ... LP, Vinyl record album
