LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

Another stone winner from Rick James' early 80s run for Motown – a set that follows strongly on territory opened up by previous records – especially that bass-heavy approach to funk! The record's maybe not as stone classic as others, but still is way tighter and more put-together than most of the James imitators of the time – and features some nice moments that include the very groovy title cut, the mellow "Ebony Eyes" duet with Smokey Robinson, and even a guest appearance from Grandmaster Flash. Titles include "Cold Blooded", "Ebony Eyes", "Pimp The Simp", "U Bring The Freak Out", "Doin' It", "Unity" and "123 (U Her & Me)".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

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.

Undisputed Truth

Undisputed Truth
Gordy, 1971. Very Good
The amazing debut of Undisputed Truth – one of the coolest new Motown groups of the 70s – and one of the few that really continued the experimental legacy of the label in the late 60s! As with the Temptations during their psychedelic years, Undisputed Truth are handled by superproducer ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gordy, 1966. Very Good+
The first volume of greatest hits that Motown compiled from the Temps classic 60s recordings – and a batch of pre-1966 numbers that shows the best early side of the group. There's less of the heavier soul sound of later years – but the group's harmonies are very sweet, and in fine form ... LP, Vinyl record album

Temptations

Psychedelic Shack
Gordy, 1970. Very Good+
A late 60s Motown classic – with a deep heavy soul sound that mixed psychedelic elements into a rolling righteous groove – with a style that was perfect for the political tenor of the times! The formula worked extremely well for The Temps, and shifted them from being just a regular ... LP, Vinyl record album

Temptations

Do The Temptations
Gordy, 1976. Very Good+
The Temptations doing The Temptations and doing it pretty darn well – further proof that the group just kept on going with greatness, even during the years of their lesser fame! The album's got a slight bit of mid 70s polish – a bit of a nod towards the dancefloor at times, but never ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ear Wax/Wonderland, Late 70s. Sealed
An obscure little funky group from Flint, Michigan, one with a tight ensemble sound that's very much in the Earth Wind & Fire mode – complete with a really great horn section, plenty of bass-heavy grooves a the bottom, and a relatively spiritual feel that comes through strongly on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Jackson

Thriller
Epic, 1982. Very Good Gatefold
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prince

Purple Rain
Warner, 1984. Very Good-
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Malaco, 1984. Sealed
Electro 80s grooving from southern funk act Freedom – a record that shows that even the Malaco scene could pick up on bass licks, synth drums, and other production techniques being used heavily up north at the time! However, given the strength of Freedom's overall sound, the album still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boz Scaggs

Silk Degrees
Columbia, 1976. Very Good-
Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis. Still, this is a solid album with the irresistible hit "Lowdown", still a favorite around ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ike & Tina Turner

Feel Good
United Artists, 1973. Sealed
Feel Good is a tight little set that shows Ike Turner sitting equally on the fence between funk and rock – sometimes kickin into the kind of tightly snapping rhythms heard on his best late 60s work, at other points strutting into more of a guitar-based groove that he was using for the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Trammps

Mixin It Up
Atlantic, 1980. Very Good
One of the most dancefloor-oriented efforts from the Trammps – and that's saying a lot, given the sound of their other records! This set brings the beats up a bit more than before – almost a boogie groove, or an 80s-styled sound at points – but still with strong roots in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

CL Blast

CL Blast
Park Place, 1984. Sealed
Produced by Frederick Knight – with titles that include "Lay Another Log On The Fire", "I Just Don't Know", "Boomerang Love", "50/50", "Never Let Me Go", and "I Need To Love You". LP, Vinyl record album
