14 Golden Recordings From The Historic Vaults OF Duke/Peacock Records

LP (Item 612146) Duke/ABC, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Fantastic work from the legendary Houston labels Duke and Peacock – home to some groundbreaking R&B, blues, and early soul music! Features work by Bobby Bland, Johnny Ace, Junior Parker, OV Wright, Joe Hinton, The Casuals, The Rob Roys, The El Torros, and more!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole and half split top seam.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

ABC/Dunhill, 1972. Very Good+
Killer Four Tops material from the early 70s – and a record that proved that they didn't need to be on Motown to still keep churnin' out the hits! The sound is sophisticated, and pushes past the standard format of the group's good-selling records for Motown – hitting a classic AM Radio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Street Corner Symphony

Little Funk Machine
ABC, 1976. Very Good+
A very cool update of older vocal group modes – taken into sublime 70s territory with arrangements and production from Willie Hutch! Street Corner Symphony were part of the 70s doo wop revival movement – but unlike some of their acapella contemporaries, they were always happy to let in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impressions

One By One
ABC, 1965. Very Good+
Classic 60s Impressions material, with the legendary lineup firmly in place, and the great Johnny Pate handling all arrangements – really giving them that sense of righteous power that pushed their music past a lot of the previous group soul sounds of the Chicago scene – with a ...

Dixie Cups

Riding High
ABC, 1965. Sealed
Classic New Orleans soul by this great girl group – much rawer than some of their more easily available recordings, and with great arrangements and music by Joe Jones! Sort of the rolling funky soul sound that Lee Dorsey and others made more famous, with the cuts "What Goes Up, Must ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lamont Dozier

Black Bach
ABC, 1974. Very Good
One of Lamont Dozier's true 70s classics – an amazing album of baroque soul with an undeniable groove – kind of the best aspects of Detroit soul, wrapped up together! The arrangements here are fantastic – a mix of strings and soul that surpasses any of Lamont's previous albums, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Angelo Bond

Bondage
ABC, 1975. Very Good+
We've got to admit, we don't know much about Angelo Bond, but we've always had kind of a soft spot for this nice overlooked album of 70s soul tracks recorded for ABC. The arrangements are by McKinley Jackson and Paul Riser, and the tracks are a nice mix of 70s soul themes – with some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sheer Elegance

Sheer Elegance
ABC, 1976. Very Good+
A strange little soul group from the UK – one that has a mix of influences that include Jamaican soul, American pop, and even a bit of gospel. The overall sound is a bit strange, but kind of spiritually warm in the best parts, with a message-related approach to soul. Titles include "Pea ... LP, Vinyl record album

Solomon Burke

I Have A Dream
ABC, 1974. Very Good+
Surprisingly nice work! Like the rest of Solomon's post-Atlantic LPs, this one has a sound that's different than his classic work, but which also exposes a whole new side of his talent, and range of vocals that didn't always show up for Atlantic. Solomon arranged and produced here, and the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chocolate City, 1978. Very Good
One of our favorite Cameo albums of all time – a record that still has the group sounding plenty funky, but also maybe hitting a more sophisticated one – one that comes through perfectly on the message-oriented title track! There's a sense of compression going on here – ... LP, Vinyl record album
People, 1973. Very Good
An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ...
