Legendary Sam Cooke

LP (Item 590046) RCA, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+
3LP
(Cover has light wear and some notes in pen.)

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.

Tease

Tease (RCA)
RCA, 1983. Very Good
A mix of bassy funk and mainstream electro grooving from Tease – the RCA album from the group, and a record that seems to share a lot with the Minneapolis groove of Prince and The Time! In fact, there's a partyful snapping quality to most of the tracks here that's very much in the Morris Day ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Reflections
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
An obscure chapter in Johnnie Taylor's career – recorded between work at Stax and Columbia, with production and arrangements by Don Davis, who was a seminal force in guiding Johnnie's career.

RCA, 1981. Near Mint-
A great 80s groove from Thelma Houston – a set with arrangements that are leaner and meaner than before, still topped with those amazing soul diva vocals!

Main Ingredient

Ready For Love
RCA, 1980. Very Good+
A killer set from a group that never lets us down – stepping out here in a sound that's more modern, more mature than their hit work of the 70s – yet still filled with all the sublime harmony soul we'd expect from the trio of Tony Silvester, Cuba Gooding, and Luther Simmons! Wade ... LP, Vinyl record album

Samba Soul

Do It
RCA, 1978. Very Good+
The second album from Samba Soul – and like the first, a nice combination of 70s disco with some strong influences from Brazilian music! Most tracks are covers – "Sometimes When We Touch", "I'm In You", or "Eyes On The Sparrow", which is probably the best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band

One of the most creative club acts of the 70s – the mighty Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band! Before starting his Kid Creole & the Coconuts combo, August Darnell worked to great fame with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band – kind of a campy, jazzy ensemble – one that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brook Benton

That Old Feeling
RCA, 1966. Sealed
A mid 60s gem from Brook Benton, produced by Clyde Otis, done in wonderful, more stripped down style than some of his other efforts of the time. Titles include "My Darling My Darling", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Moon River", "The Second Time Around", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1978. Very Good+
A Hollywood Party, recorded in New Jersey – with a groove that's every bit as tight as any of Odyssey's best records, but with a slightly jazzier vibe as well! The set's a great example of the way the trio pushed the 70s soul game further – taking the early 70s RCA AM radio style, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chic

C'est Chic
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
A massive set from the legendary Chic – and a set that has the dancefloor combo coming down perfectly throughout!
