Sunny

LP (Item 5905) Philips, 1966 — Condition: Very Good

Sublime pop soul genius from Bobby Hebb – a standout record that really made his career, and a dusty nugget we never tire of hearing! Bobby was really unique at the time – singing a mixture of soul and pop that kept things real while still crossing over big – earning him an equal audience on both sides of the charts. Part of the credit for the album goes to producer Jerry Ross and arranger Joe Renzetti – who work here in a careful, almost gentle approach to pop – one that's never overblown, and which really lets Bobby's vocals step out front on the title hit "Sunny", plus other tunes that include "Crazy Baby", "I Am Your Man", "Where Are You", "Yes Or No Or Maybe Not", and "Love Love Love".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove and MR etch. Cover has some surface wear, light aging and some pen.)

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.

Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
Tight funky work from Dr John – a second collaboration with producer Allen Toussaint, and a set that follows strongly on their Right Place record of the year before!

Jose Feliciano

Alive Alive O!
RCA, 1969. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
A beautiful little live album from Jose Feliciano – recorded in London at the end of the 60s, with a sound that's often more stripped down than his studio work of the time! Jose's on vocals and guitar, backed by only a bit of bass and percussion – so the record's almost got the ... LP, Vinyl record album
MCA, 1978. Near Mint-
An excellent album of smooth soul tracks, and maybe Van's best record of the 70s! The record shows Van sitting at the piano in an intimate setting – ala Barry White – and it's got a similar Love Unlimited Orchestra approach, with much large backing behind Van's voice, and a very full ...

ADC Band

Long Stroke
Cotillion, 1978. Very Good+
ADC Band take a long stroke on the funky bass – borrowing all the best P-Funk elements from their Detroit counterparts – but also helping the music find a tighter, more focused groove too! ADC were a key part of that post-Parliament/Funkadelic generation who used George Clinton's best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Angel Of The Night
Arista/GRP, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold
Sweet jazzy soul from Angie Bofill – recorded in 1979 with Dave Grusin, who gives the album a smooth edge that really works perfectly with her vocals!

ABC, 1978. Very Good+
Although not as instantly captivating as their work for Stax, this set for ABC is still a pretty darn great group soul album! The group haven't lost their touch vocally – and Ron Banks and LJ Reynolds are still incredible singers that push smooth soul to a whole new level. The album ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

Roberta Flack Featuring Donny Hathaway
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+
Beautiful duo soul from the all-time great Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway – released right around the time of Donny's tragic passing! The set was co-produced by Eric Mercury and Flack – and it has a lot of great vocals from Roberta, with as masterfully paired with Donny as always ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ralph MacDonald

Path
Marlin, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of percussionist Ralph MacDonald's best albums of the late 70s – and one of the few on his own, given how many other records he played on! The set's a complicated mix of jazz, soul, and a variety of rootsier elements – and MacDonald shows a lot of sides of his personality here ... LP, Vinyl record album

SOS Band

Too
Tabu, 1981. Very Good+
The SOS Band's second album – and a masterpiece of 80s groove! The album's wonderfully tight, and wonderfully right on the money – held together like a pile of money dipped in honey – keyboards, bass, percussion, and vocals all sweetly grooving with that post-70s funky feel that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mirage/Atco, 1985. Very Good+
A set of tinny, poppy dancefloor grooves from Shannon – very much in the spirit of her earlier hits for Mirage, and handled with a strange sort of charm that we're hard pressed to define ourselves! There's certainly plenty of cheesy elements going on – from overwrought guitars to ... LP, Vinyl record album
