LaBelle

LP (Item 6124) Warner, 1971 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 11

Labelle's first album of rockin soul for Warner, and a great batch of deep soul tracks that take the group far far beyond their 60s girl group recordings! The album's a stunner – complete with ripping vocals by Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash – and done in a hip style that's every bit the best of bad-rapping female soul in the 70s. It's like a bomb went off or something between this one and the group's previous Atlantic album – changing the sound of Patti and the girls tremendously, and turning them towards a style that would keep them in the record racks for years! With the cuts "Too Many Days", "Running Out Of Fools", "When The Sun Comes Shining Through", "Heart Be Still", and a nice version of "Time & Love". (Cover has some wear and a bit of pencil on back.)  © 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.

Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group!
