Love Takes Tears/Go On & Dream

7-inch (Item 59306) MGM, 1975 — Condition: Very Good

One of the best solos singles by Johnny Bristol! "Love Takes Tears" is an excellent mellow soul number – built around a groove that's almost like "Love's Theme" by Barry White, but graced with warm vocals by Johnny that give the tune a very catchy hook! "Go On & Dream" is mellower, a great example of the gentle side of Bristol!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Killer stuff from Johnny Bristol! "You and I" is one of his best early tracks – and it begins with this tight hard drum sound that's right out of Barry White's best funky tracks, and which works perfectly for Johnny's sweet soul vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

An excellent bit of funky soul! Thomas East has a super-dope style that reminds us a lot of the Detroit funk of Westbound – with a slow rolling rhythm track, hard clavinet solos, and a fuzzy funky soulful sound that can't be beat! A nice chugger – with a part 2 that's just as good as ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

A bit of a reggae groove in this one – clearly inspired by Bob Marley's "Jammin", and with a groove that's very similar! 7-inch, Vinyl record
