Sylvia

LP (Item 6105) Vibration, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP


An excellent album of smooth modern soul, with Sylvia's sexy vocals in the front, and some nice mellow grooves behind her! The LP includes the great cut "Sweet Stuff", a sample cut, with a very slow funky groove – plus a very raunchy cover of "You Sure Love To Ball", one that would make Marvin Gaye blush! Other tracks include "Taxi", "He Don't Ever Loose His Groove", and "LA Sunshine". (Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has some wear & a cut corner.)  © 1996-2016, 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.

Vibration, 1975. Sealed
The political overtones of Shirley's hit "Shame Shame Shame" are made clear on the album's cover – a drawing that shows her wagging a finger at Nixon. Other tracks include "Cry Cry Cry", "Jim Doc Kay", "Love Is", "Disco Shirley", "Keep ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hitch It Up
Imperial, Late 60s. Good+
An album of tight funky instrumentals with a nice southern feel to them. Hard piano, organ, and guitar, and a very Booker T & the MGs sound. We're not sure if this is the same group as Packey Axton's combo – but there's a definite Memphis instrumental feel. Includes the cuts "Soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Perfect Angel
Epic, 1974. Very Good-
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest soul divas!

Feel It
Buddah, 1975. Very Good
Sweet mellow soul meets the burgeoning east coast club soul sound – and the results are incredible!

Roy Ayers Ubiquity
Polydor, 1971. Good+
One of the greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – and one of the rarest! The record is right in the same vein as Roy's groundbreaking He's Coming LP – a righteous mix of soul jazz, subtle funk, and some of the cosmic wisdom that Roy was spreading among the jazz funk underground – ...

Phyllis Hyman
Buddah, 1977. Very Good
Far and away our favorite album by Phyllis Hyman – her first, and with lots of the same smooth jazzy soul touches you'd find in her work with Norman Connors! Phyllis is still as sophisticated as she is on later albums, but there's a bit freer style to the record – and Phyllis breaks a ... LP, Vinyl record album

C'est Chic
Atantic, 1978. Very Good
A massive set from the legendary Chic – and a set that has the dancefloor combo coming down perfectly throughout!

Have A Good Time
A&M/Bridge, 1984. Sealed
Excellent work from The Valentine Brothers – and a pretty big album for the group on A&M. The best tracks have a smooth modern soul sound – stepping along nicely at a catchy groove, with the Brothers' sweet harmonies interacting wonderfully, kind of in a late O'Jays mode, with a ...

Uncle Jam Wants You
Warner, 1979. Good+ Gatefold
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with ...

Tough Guys
Enterprise, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Isaac Hayes' richest soundtracks – deeper and more complicated than the groove of Shaft and Truck Turner, and filled with some great tunes that glow with color, life, and imagination – showing an Isaac Hayes that almost seems to be moving beyond the usual blackploitation groove! ...
