I Cried For You

LP (Item 6202) Cadet, Early 60s/Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A fantastic Johnny "Guitar" Watson album, and one that features him playing no guitar at all! Instead, he plays piano, and with a nice bluesy style that sounds great. He sings mostly standards, but in a fantastic way that twists them inside out, and that gives them all these great soulful edges. Highlights include a slammin' fast bossa piano version of "I'll Remember April", plus excellent readings of "When Did You Leave Heaven" and "Polkadots & Moonbeams", and a seven minute version of "Misty". In a way, this is sort of like the stuff Isaac Hayes did on his early albums, when he took songs you knew, but he stretched and twisted them till they became his own property. A fantastic album all the way through.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono blue fade label pressing. Cover some light wear and a cutout hole – but this is a nice copy overall.)

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.

Marlena Shaw

Out Of Different Bags
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+
Marlena Shaw's first-ever album – and while not as all-out righteous as some of her later work, still a really unique record that quickly put Marlena head and shoulders above the rest of the pack! The record's a mix of jazzy vocal numbers and heavier soul tunes – arranged by Richard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Power & Light

Power & Light
Cadet, Early 70s. Sealed
One of the deeper soul albums recorded for Cadet – an obscure record with an ensemble vocal feel – clearly inspired by gospel, but done for the hipper soul audiences of the time. The whole thing's got a nice righteous feel, and also features a number of covers of popular tunes from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family Stone Greatest Hits
Epic, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
Almost a "greatest hits" of greatest hits albums – one of those collections that almost sold more copies than all the full albums by the artist – forever earning Sly & The Family Stone a place in record collections around the globe! All the hits are here, laid out back to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Let's Get It On
Motown, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
An amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his ...

Karen Pree

Karen Pree
MCA, 1977. Near Mint-
We only know Karen from this one album, but she's got a heck of a nice voice – one with a full range and jazzy richness that should have made her a much bigger star. There's traces here of the jazzy 70s pop of Joni Mitchell or Maria Muldaur – although the album itself is produced with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chambers Brothers

Unbonded
Avco, 1973. Near Mint-
A sweet 70s session from The Chambers Brothers – one that's more electric and less rootsy than before, and which gets some nice pop soul arrangements from Tony Camillo! Camillo brings in a compressed groove that could almost get the group on the radio – losing the folksy and rock-ish ... LP, Vinyl record album
TK, Late 70s. Sealed
Sweetly soaring disco from the legendary Celi Bee – easily one of our favorite disco divas of the late 70s! This album's got a slightly lighter feel than some of Celi's other work – a bit less drama at times, but still plenty of full-on clubby rhythms – thanks to arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Les McCann

Talk To The People
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
One of the best of Les McCann's 70s Atlantic recordings, and one that captures him with a lot of fire and funkiness – and none of the looser modes of other recordings from the time! Les sings on about half the cuts – but the focus is still quite strongly on his funky jazz, which makes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miriam Makeba

Magic Of Makeba
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
A bit of a mainstream effort from Makeba, as this set features more of an emphasis on pop material and standards than on some of her other records. Sid Bass conducted and arranged the orchestral backing on the folk and sixties pop classics, which doesn't leave as much room for her vocal stylings ... LP, Vinyl record album
