Friends Forever

LP (Item 624836) Mike Williamson, 1979 — Condition: Sealed
Gatefold

...

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Moments

Sharp
Stang, 1978. Near Mint-
The Moments' last album for Sylvia Robinson, and kind of a mish-mash of styles and approaches – but also a record with some really nice moments! The group's harmony style is as smooth as ever – heading towards the more polished approach the trio would take as Ray Goodman & Brown ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stang, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Quite possibly The Moments' last good album, and a record that has them mixing a bit of funkiness into their usual style of sweet group soul. There's a mix of modern soul with some of the group's older styles – and the harmonies are as great as ever, perhaps more so because the production ... LP, Vinyl record album

Staple Singers

Be What You Are
Stax, 1973. Very Good+
Warmly grooving 70s soul from The Staple Singers – recorded in a fuller Memphis mode that's miles from their gospel roots, but still plenty darn nice! The style here is very much in keeping with the hit Staples mode of the time – righteous, full, but still nice and earthy at the bottom ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great sense of righteousness and groove – the key mix that made the O'Jays so great back in the day – and which really helped put the Philly International enterprise on the map! The album's miles from the group's simple harmony soul roots – even though those were pretty darn ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good+
The move to Philly International did wonders for Lou's career – and there's no denying that the smooth soul sound of Gamble and Huff worked perfectly with his rich vocal style! The "classy" setting took Lou to a whole new level, while also providing a good force for his still-soulfu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rafael Cameron

Cameron All The Way
Salsoul, 1982. Near Mint-
Funky club stuff, with a bit of an 80s groove – thanks to lots of bass pedals and electric keyboards. Rafael's voice is a bit too weird for us, but the groove's ok. Titles include "Desires", "Can't Get Enough Of You", "Shake It Down", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

Grover Washington Jr

Feels So Good
Kudu, 1975. Very Good
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mark Murphy

Bridging A Gap
Muse, 1972. Very Good
One of Mark Murphy's earliest records for Muse, and an essential release in his developing style in the 70's. Sweet warm and swinging jazz vocals, with accompaniment by a tight group that includes the Brecker Brothers, Ron Carter, and Pat Rebillot. The set features two Murphy originals, "Saus ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good
Wonderful stuff by Nat – truly one of his greatest Capitol vocal albums, and set to great arrangements by Nelson Riddle, very much in a classic mode. Tracks include heartbreakers like "Dinner For One, James" and "There Goes My Heart" – plus more lively standards ... LP, Vinyl record album
