LP, Vinyl record album


A sprawling set of material Dionne recorded for Scepter before departing the label – a good number of which were made with Memphis producer Chips Moman during the sessions for the excellent Soulful album – and some diverse, equally great material that spans her years at the label! It includes a host of great Bacharach/David productions – with some nice medleys of hits and wide range of covers, including some classic Sly Stone and Curtis Mayfield on the edgier end, plus nice takes on the Beatles and others. It's got some great gospel-leaning numbers, too! A far-reaching set with more than 30 tracks – including "Grace", "People Get Ready", "Summertime", "Give A Damn", "Slaves"., "People Got TO Be Free""The Love Of My Man", "I've Been Loving You Too Long", a cool cover of The Band's "The Weight", "Someday We'll Be Together", "Games People Play" and "Everyday People". (Cover has unglued seams & a stained corner.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Promises Promises
Scepter, 1969. Very Good+
Sublime sounds from Dionne Warwick – a classic Scepter Records set produced by Burt Bacharach, who also wrote a good number of the tunes too! Arrangements are by a few different top-shelf studio talents – Don Sebesky, Peter Matz, and Bacharach himself – all in that breathy gentle ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stop/Scepter, Late 60s. Sealed
A strange one by Otis Williams – the former leader of The Charms, a relatively big vocal group on King during the 50s. Supposedly, Williams always wanted to sing country music – a natural choice at King, given that the label worked in both C&W and R&B during the 50s – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impact
Atco, 1976. Near Mint-
Plenty of Impact from this great Philly group – a soaring quartet who harmonize with some great Bobby Eli arrangements – at a level that shines as strongly as the best 70s work by Blue Magic or The Spinners! Impact never broke the big time as strongly, but they're a great group in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Scepter, 1975. Near Mint-
A lost bit of east coast vocal work – by a group who've got a slightly unique sound! At one level, Eon have a feel that's similar to some of the Philly groups recording at the Sigma scene – but at another, they've got a more neighborhoody quality – one that preserves a strong ...

Ask Rufus
ABC, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
One of our favorite albums ever from Rufus and Chaka Khan – a sublime 70s set in which the group's sound totally comes together, and finds a really special sound that's all its own! The blend of elements here is perfect – the group's funky jazz instrumentation, and Chaka Khan's warm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1986. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
One of two classic live albums that Maze cut during the 80s – even more proof that the Maze style of soul music was not only thriving, but succeeding strongly outside the studio, and regardless of airplay and album sales! The general groove is very similar to the band's classic work from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fly Me To The Moon
Minit, 1968. Very Good+
A completely sublime first album from the great Bobby Womack – and a set that already has him sounding quite different than any of his contemporaries! Bobby's got a southern soul vibe at the start, to be sure – but he also works things in this amazingly fresh way, too – a bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Keni Burke
Dark Horse, 1977. Near Mint-
The first great solo album from Five Stairstep Keni Burke – really recreating himself as a completely different sort of artist – one who's all grown up, and able to work in this jazzy approach to modern soul that's completely great all the way through! Keni produced the record himself ... LP, Vinyl record album
On Top
Hi Records, 1969. Very Good
Willie Mitchell's definitely on top with this smoking little set – a record that seems to allow even freer interplay between the members of his group – in ways that make the album one of Mitchell's jazziest efforts of the 60s! The players of the group are getting a bit of credit on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1972. Near Mint-
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1977. Very Good+
One of Kelly's last records of the 70s – a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still quite strong overall, with some excellent vocals on most tracks. Gene Page handled the arrangements and production – and he gives Kelly some nice backgrounds to work with, ones that have a ... LP, Vinyl record album
