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 a cutout notch and some seam splitting. Labels have a bit of marker.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Warner, 1986. Sealed
A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact!

For You
Warner, 1978. Near Mint-
Compelling early work from Prince – with a host of influences present on the surface, showing more clearly from whence he developed his unique sound.

Soaring grooves and mellow moments – a perfect blend of 70s soul styles, summed up here beautifully by Enchantment!
