Prince

LP (Item 61315) Warner, 1979 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Prince — Prince ... CD 4.99

An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second album, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you can really hear the seeds of his later efforts – a really remarkable, unique, and fascinating record that stands up with some of his best work, and bucks all late 70s trends and cliches in pop, soul and funk! In some ways this is one of our favorite Prince records, as it has a kind of intimacy that was lacking on later sets – or maybe because the hit "I Wanna Be Your Lover" has such a mad groove! "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad" has the sly sound that would run throughout the rest of Prince's better work for years to come – and Chaka Khan would later cover "I Feel for You", and hit large with it in the 80s. Also includes "Sexy Dancer", "With You" and "When We're Dancing Close & Slow".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Ashford & Simpson

Stay Free
Warner, 1979. Very Good+
Great stuff! From Motown songwriters to world-class superstars, the trip was a well-deserved one for Valerie Simpson and Nick Ashford – and this album's perhaps their crowning achievement in sophisticated club soul! The record's got a great groove that offers a more soulful version of disco ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
The second essential LP from the Time that would solidify Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis' position as a force to be dealt within commercial R&B for years to come, cut during the early 80s, when Minneapolis seemed like it was exploding at the seams with great music. With Morris Day's nice extended ... LP, Vinyl record album

Randy Crawford

Miss Randy Crawford
Warner, 1977. Very Good+
One of the hippest, tightest albums ever from Randy Crawford – a set that's got a great blend of jazz, funk, and soul – all with the kind of poise and polish she brought to her famous work with The Crusaders! Crawford's wonderful vocals are wrapped up perfectly in some cool combo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maria Muldaur

Maria Muldaur
Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark record from Maria Muldaur – quite different than the rougher folsky work she cut in the 60s – and done with a really warm studio sound that's pure 70s all the way through! Maria's working here with some older folksy contemporaries – like David Grisman, Ry Cooder, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1967. Very Good+
A weird little record from Bill Cosby – a set that's not as all-out funky as some of his other vocal albums, but still pretty nice overall! The style here is more bluesy than soul-based, but production is still by Fred Smith, of 103rd Street Rhythm Band fame – and the album has a sense ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lorraine Ellison

Stay With Me
Warner, 1969. Near Mint-
Deep deep soul from Lorraine Ellison – a record that already shows quite a bit of growth from her earlier Warner Brothers recordings – and a new sense of hipness as well! There's definitely an influence here of the sound of Stax and Atlantic Records at the end of the 60s – all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, Late 70s/Early 80s. Very Good+ 2LP
A funky trip through the classic Warner Brothers recordings of P-Funk maestro Bootsy Collins!

There's a total of 14 tracks, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funkadelic

Hardcore Jollies
Warner, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the sweetest Funkadelic albums from the middle period, and a good batch of tracks that often gets overlooked in the haze of similar Pedro Bell covers! Don't miss this one, though – because it is a very strong album – key in the shift from more guitar-based funk to more groove-ori ... LP, Vinyl record album

Madleen Kane

Rough Diamond
Warner, 1978. Near Mint-
Hard to believe that anyone would call Madleen Kane a rough diamond – especially with her polished look on the cover, and an equally polished set of grooves underneath! The album features arrangements from the team of Tony Lester and Thor Baldurson – and you can definitely hear ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint-
A great collection of tracks by one of the most-overlooked female singers of the late 60s! The set is great, and the overall sound is a mix of smooth production with Lorraine's raw gospelly vocals – and tracks include "Stay With Me", "A Good Love", "Many Rivers To ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jon Lucien

Rashida
RCA, 1973. Very Good+
Amazing work from the great Jon Lucien – and probably his best-ever record! The album has Jon hitting a totally unified vision of spacey soul – bringing in elements of Brazilian music and touches of his Carribean roots, fusing them together with a sweet jazzy style and one of the most ...
