Best Of The Mighty Clouds Of Joy

LP (Item 608339) Peacock, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 45

Tremendous early work from this great gospel group – very different than some of their more soul-based sides of the 70s! (Black label Peacock pressing! Cover has a very light mark from an old sticker, but is nice overall.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Prelude, 1985. Very Good+
Strange to see a gospel album on the mostly-disco Prelude label – but the album's a good one, with a strong modern soul approach, similar to crossover work from the time by The Clark Sisters.

I'm So Grateful
Checker, 1966. Very Good+
One of the most soulful gospel albums ever issued by Chess – the debut of singer Martha Bass, and a set that can almost stand up to other 60s label classics by artists like Mitty Collier or Fontella Bass! Gene Barge handles the arrangements, and things are nice and lean – just a bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tommie, Lonnie, & Me
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good
Amazing gospel harmony – recorded in 1970, but with a rootsy feel that's like the best mid 50s groups! The quartet are insanely wonderful – crafting harmonies that blow away most other soul groups of the time – and the backing on the set is mostly just guitar, tripping along in a ...
