Thelma Houston (1983)

LP (Item 596130) MCA, 1983 — Condition: Very Good+

(Cover has a cutout notch.)

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.

Thelma Houston

Devil In Me
Motown, 1977. Near Mint-
Thelma's one of those singers who must have been waiting years for disco to come around and help her find a reason to sing! Her career was slightly ill-timed in the beginning, coming along with a baroque soul beginning that was great, yet somewhat out of place in the early 70s. But enter a record ... LP, Vinyl record album
MCA, 1982. Very Good+
A sweet sweet groover from Klique – with a sound that more than makes us forgive them for their silly costumes on the cover! The tunes on the set have a wonderfully simple approach to the groove – one that you might not expect from the group's glossy image, but which is served up here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alfonzo Surrett

Comin Out
MCA, 1980. Very Good
A great bit of boogie from the Chicago scene of the early 80s – a set recorded with a nice jazzy bounce overall, and a strong ear for a catchy hook and tight groove – very much in the mode of Omni or Zoom from the same period! Alfonzo's got a warm vocal style that soars up to falsetto ... LP, Vinyl record album
MCA, Mid 70s. Very Good
A great collection of work from their years at ABC – post-Motown, but still really great – with tracks that include "Are You Man Enough", "We All Gotta Stick Together", "Keeper Of The Castle", "Catfish", "Seven Lonely Nights", "Ain't ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie Jordan

Different Moods Of Me
MCA, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
A pretty sweet little solo album by Lonnie Jordan – a key War member during the group's biggest fame. The album lives up to its title, and serves up a number of different musical styles, all with Lonnie on keyboards and vocals – but the best work is the stuff that's still in the War-typ ...

One Way

Love Is
MCA, 1981. Very Good+
A totally massive set from One Way – a record that has them sounding even better than ever – drawing on all the strengths of the previous few records, and really knocking it out of the park! Although the group's got a great way with a groove, the mellow cuts here are equally nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Summers & Summer's Heat

London Style
MCA, 1983. Near Mint-
Bill Summers' London Style here is one that's definitely influenced by the changes on the dancefloor coming from the UK in the early 80s – and the groove is a slightly more electrified take on the rhythms that Bill was laying down on previous albums for MCA! Overall, though, the sound's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lenny Williams

Love Current
MCA, 1979. Near Mint-
Lenny's working here with Frank E Wilson – a great producer who really understood his style of singing, and who classed up his act considerably after the early days in Tower of Power. The album's got a good mix of smooth soul and uptempo numbers – and tracks include "Sweet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Denise LaSalle

Unwrapped
MCA, 1979. Very Good+
Titles include "Think About It", "Too Little In Common To Be Lovers", "Trapped By A Thing Called Love", "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy", and "Keep On Dancin Rock". Arranged by David Van DePitte. LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1972. Very Good+
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the ... LP, Vinyl record album
