Ruby & The Romantics

LP (Item 6252) Kapp, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Great work by one of the most sublime soul groups of the 60s! Ruby and the gang had a perfect harmony sound, which they sung to great fame on a few big chart hits – as well as some other more obscure material. Includes their massive hit "Our Day Will Come", plus other great tracks like "My Summer Love", "We'll Meet Again", "Does He Really Care For Me", and "Hey There Lonely Boy".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hold and 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.

Kapp, Mid 60s. Very Good
The one and only album by The Unifics – and a beautiful precursor to the solid group sounds of the east coast early 70s.

DJ Rogers

On The Road Again
RCA, 1976. Sealed
Classic work from the great DJ Rogers – with a soaring, sweeping, righteous soul feel that reminds us of Rance Allen at his best, or of some of the smooth work of Lamont Dozier from the same time. DJ wrote, arranged, and produced all the tracks on this album, and the cuts have a slight nod ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impressions

Check Out Your Mind
Curtom, 1970. Very Good+
Righteous late 60s soul from The Impressions – the group's last album with Curtis Mayfield in the lineup! The sound here follows heavily from the Young Mods and This Is My Country years – a heavier take on the trio's soul stylings than their work over at ABC in the mid 60s – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Independents

Discs Of Gold
Wand, 1974. Sealed Gatefold
Some of the best work ever by this seminal Chicago 70s soul group! The quartet features one female vocalist, and three male – two of whom, Chuck Jackson (brother of Jessie!) and Marvin Yancey, went on to transform the sound of modern soul as producer/arrangers in the mid to late 70s. This ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cleveland Eaton & The Garden Of Eaton

Keep Love Alive
Ovation, 1979. Very Good+
A mixture of funky jazz, soul, and disco – recorded with a host of studio players and a smooth jazzy finish. The record's trying to keep the groove going from Eaton's Instant Hip LP – which was quite a minor hit for him – and although we love the bassist as a jazz player, most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rinder & Lewis

Warriors
AVI, 1979. Near Mint-
An excellent bit of spacey club grooves from the enigmatic Rinder & Lewis team! The record has a sweet jazzy vibe that's different than some of their other records – and which seems to share equal parts influence from Kraftwerk, Larry Mizell, and Tangerine Dream. Includes the great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Young, Gifted, & Black
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good-
A beautiful album that perfectly mixes both sides of Aretha Franklin's talents – the hard-edged soul singer who first flourished at Atlantic records in the late 60s, and the artist who was growing even more as a vocalist – really reaching out her wings to more sophisticated material! ...

Tito Puente

20th Anniversary
Tico, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great compilation of Tito's work for the Tico label – put together in celebration of his 20 years in show biz, and mostly featuring tunes recorded around the time of the release of the record. The set contains some great 60s groovers – and titles include "Loco De Amor", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania All-Stars

Delicate & Jumpy
Fania/Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
A stunner of a record from the Fania All Stars – a tremendous attempt to move into a 70s soul vein, complete with Satin Soul arrangements from Gene and Billy Page! The record bubbles over with the funky orchestrations you'd expect from the best Barry White work at the time – strings ... LP, Vinyl record album
