Lover & Friend/Return To Forever

7-inch (Item 60048) Capitol, 1979 — Condition: Very Good+

Always-great work from Minnie! "Lover & Friend" begins with a spare piano note, stops, moves again, then the whole band swings into the mix in a nice jazzy feel – Minnie stepping up to the plate with a warm vocal and a nice bounce to her sound. "Return To Forever" is quite spare – bubbling up out of nowhere, mostly just Minnie's vocals, with a restrained backing that really has an edge!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Fantastic work by Lou Rawls – recorded live and produced by David Axelrod! "Southside Blues" is mostly a monologue by Lou – really great stuff about our home, the southside of Chicago – and oddly, the single cuts out before the song actually begins! "Shadow Of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Post-Brunswick work by Barbara Acklin – and pretty darn nice! "Raindrops" has a great little groove – very similar to the loping Chi-soul approach that Barb virtually invented at Brunswick in the late 60s, and a perfect fit for her righteous and bubbling vocals. "Here ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Something Cool (2x7")
Capitol, 1953. Very Good 2x7" Gatefold (pic cover)
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Pete Rugolo conducted these lush orchestrations for this classic June Christy record. This EP contains the tracks "Day Dream", "Sing Something Simple", "The Wind", and "This Year's Kisses". Christy's presentation is beautifully poignant. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Amy, Mid/Late 60s. Near Mint-
The original version of one of the classic breakbeat soul cuts – Allen Toussaint's classic "Get Out Of My Life Woman", a track that was recorded more times than we can count, and nearly every time with a breakbeat! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Gamble, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Killer single from one of the best Philly soul groups ever! "Sad Girl" is a perfect harmony cut, with fantastic vibes that make the vocals ring out in this spooky spooky way. But the real treat's the cheery flipside, which starts with a very nice breakbeat, backed by tightly arching ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
