Concerto In B Goode

LP (Item 640157) Mercury, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Chuck Berry — Concerto In B Goode (180 gram pressing) ... LP 23.99

If you think that Chuck Berry only hit his heights at Chess Records, then get ready to change your mind – as this late 60s record for Mercury is quite a cooker! Side one has Berry working in a cool hybrid of blues and soul, but with some very weird production – handled by Chuck himself, with almost a nod towards the way that the younger generation was messing up electric blues a bit with their rock experiments. Chuck uses a bit of unusual echo here and there, but still nicely avoids any cliched attempts to cash in with a rock blues mode – and then on side two, he really gets crazy – by offering up a side-long song that runs for over 18 minutes in length – the mighty "Concerto In B Goode", which is one hell of a guitar-heavy jam! Other shorter titles include "Good Looking Woman", "It's Too Dark In There", "Put Her Down", and "My Woman".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a punch-hole 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.

More Chuck Berry
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good
The title's certainly straightforward and to the point – but then again, there's not a lot to say about this one except that it's pure Chuck Berry all the way through! The album may well be one of Chuck's most -hit filled, as it's overflowing with classics like "Rock & Roll ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Miles

Them Changes
Mercury, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark crossover album – featuring Buddy Miles' mixed Freedom Express group, and a heavy jazz-rock sound that would soon dominate the charts with other groups. Buddy's drums are super-heavy, even if his vocals always get us the wrong way. Includes the original recording of "Them ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bar-Kays

Propositions
Mercury, 1982. Very Good-
Tightly grooving work from The Bar-Kays – a set that's light years away from the sound of their Memphis roots, but still plenty darn funky overall! The album's got a tight bass-heavy approach to the music – the well-forged ensemble sound that graced the later years of the Bar-Kays' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1983. Sealed
One of the last great pop records from Donna Summer – thanks to super huge radio and video play for the title cut – and to a huge amount of tuneful tracks put together by producer/arranger Michael Omartin! By this point, Summer isn't trying to fool anyone that she's a deeper soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Fire
Mercury, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the biggest albums ever for Ohio Players – a set that took their earlier funk sound and targeted firmly at the mainstream with a lean, mean groove that a million other groups copied at the time! There's still plenty of the soul of the early years in the group's approach here – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Angel
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold
Maybe the last great album in the Ohio Players run for Mercury in the mid 70s – a set that's every bit as smooth, sexy, and funky as their other major label efforts from the time – and one that continued to refine the grittier funk of their roots! While the Players might be remembered ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Honey
Mercury, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
A legendary album from The Ohio Players – a set that's famous not just for its sexy cover, but for the way the group managed to set a whole new standard for mainstream funk at the time!

Esther Phillips

Good Black Is Hard To Crack
Mercury, 1981. Near Mint-
Esther's swan song for Mercury, featuring tunes in a number of modes. Material ranges from a laid back early 80s soul reading of "Crazy", to more stripped down clubby soul on par with the previous album, to more stripped down modern groovers. Produced by Benny Golson. Other titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Tchoupitoulas

Wild Tchoupitoulas
Island, 1976. Near Mint-
A great slice of New Orleans soul from the 70s – a record that replicates the "Indian" culture in the Mardi Gras scene – and which is most notable for featuring work by The Meters as well! The groove here is kind of Meters-styled funk, mixed with some fuller New Orleans mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul City, 1968. Near Mint-
A wonderful early album from soul singer Al Wilson – a well-crafted mix of modes that really stands out in late 60s pop – and which showed that Al was quite different than most of his contemporaries! The album's got some very hip production by Johnny Rivers – who was really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Ok, so you might be sick of hearing "Stand By Me" over and over on oldies stations, but Ben's one of the greatest soul singers of the 60s, and checking out this greatest hits set, you'll be surprised at how many great songs he sung that you might not know! Nice ones include "That's ... LP, Vinyl record album
