Flamingo Favorites

LP (Item 5925) End, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+
One of the great End LPs by The Flamingos, who at this point were at their peak, and were recording with these amazing studio arrangements by Sammy Lowe. Lots of cool stuff in the same vein as "I Only Have Eyes For You", like "Besame Mucho", "You Belong To My Heart", "Tell Me How Long", and the stellar "Mio Amore".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(60s "Division Of Roulette" pressing. Cover has some surface wear & aging.)

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.

Funk Factory

Funk Factory
Atco, 1975. Near Mint-
A massive bit of funky fusion from the 70s – an album that was crucially overlooked at the time, but which has gone onto become a crate-diggers classic over the years! The group's fronted by Polish jazz legends Michal Urbaniak and Urszula Dudziak – but it also features a fair bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

This Old Heart Of Mine
Tamla, 1966. Near Mint-
The Isley Brothers on Motown – a really key step forward for the group, who find a whole new level of soul with help from the Holland Dozier Holland team! There's a warmth here missing from previous Isleys material – that rough edge that was more part of their rocking years, softened a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Norman Connors

Romantic Journey
Buddah, 1976. Very Good+
A warmly romantic journey from the stellar Norman Connors – but a set that's also got a fair bit of spiritual jazz undercurrents too! Norman's at that perfect Starship point in his career – giving equal space to the vocals and instrumental passages on the record – at a level that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funkadelic

Funkadelic
Westbound, 1970. Near Mint-
One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Detroit soul scene! As you might guess from the title, the album is Funkadelic's first – and it's a swirling mass of psychedelic guitars, echoey drums, and bass-heavy riffing, all topped off by the band's harmony vocals, which sound like a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry White

Stone Gon'
20th Century, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of The Maestro's true materpieces! Fragile, sexy, sinful soul, held together by interwoven strings and keyboard lines, with Barry's voice over the top like rich cream on a sweet piece of cake. Includes the long versions of "Honey Please, Can't Ya See" and "Never, Never Gonna ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dells

No Way Back
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
Fantastic work from The Dells – a group who never seemed to stop turning out greatness – even as they made a shift between different labels in the 70s! This set's got The Dells moving from Chess Records to Mercury – but there's still a strong indie vibe to the set – thanks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nature's Divine

In The Beginning
Infinity, 1979. Very Good+
A large-ish group that more or less takes off from the model of popular soul groups like the Ohio Players or Earth Wind & Fire with either disco-influenced uptempo numbers or polished ballads. Nothing extraoridinary here, just a batch of tightly played late 70s commercial soul jams, like " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Enoch Light

Spaced Out
Project 3, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Quite possibly the grooviest album ever from Enoch Light – a trippy blend of many 60s styles, all put together with sublime Project 3 Sound! The album's billed as featuring "exploratory trips through the music of Bach, Bacharach, the Beatles – Integrating the Moog, the Guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis & Sonny Stitt

Live in Stockholm 1960
Dragon (Sweden), 1960/1986. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Incredible stuff – and a rare meeting of two giant jazz talents you'd never thought would appear on the same stage! The album features a 1960 concert in Sweden – Miles and Sonny upfront, with backing by the trio of Wyton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb. Tracks are long, fiery, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann

Windows Opened
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
Herbie Mann's opening plenty of windows with this one – and plenty of doors too – really letting some new influences come to his music, thanks to the presence of Sonny Sharrock on guitar and Roy Ayers on vibes! The album's one of Herbie's wildest from the 60s – and the mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Stardust Session
Prestige, 1958/1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An excellent double-length album that brings together a full session of material by John Coltrane – titles that were initially scattered over a number of different albums, but finally brought back together for this package! The album features Coltrane blowing in a quintet with trumpeter ... LP, Vinyl record album
