That's Lou – The Moving & Exciting Songs Of Mr Lou Rawls

LP (Item 64408) Capitol, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Great work from Lou Rawls on Capitol – one of his fine fine albums produced by David Axelrod, with that snapping tight groove that works amazingly well with his vocals! The arrangements are super-tight – jazzy backings that have Lou shifting between that monologue style that he virtually patented at the time, and straighter swinging tunes that have a heck of a lot of soul. Titles include "Problems", "When Love Goes Wrong", "Ear Bender Monologue", "What Are You Doing About Today", "The Love That I Give",a nd "Hard To Get Thing Called Love".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has light wear & aging.)

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.

Philadelphia International, 1978. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
Just in case you were fearing that Lou's late 70s talents were only part of the studio magic of Gamble & Huff, this set proves that Mr Rawls could really sparkle in a spontaneous live setting – working here with a totally top-shelf set of arrangements that display a really wide range of ...

Lou Rawls

Too Much!
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the great ones – produced by David Axelrod, with HB Barnum arrangements, and sublime vocals by Lou, who's really at his best in this sort of setting! The album features 2 hip monologues – "Righteous Woman" and "Dead End Street" – plus the famous sung ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keith Barrow

Just As I Am
Capitol, 1980. Very Good+
One of the most obscure releases by this already-obscure singer – a smooth bit of modern soul tracks with an 80s groove on the more uptempo numbers. As usual, Keith is better on the sweeter tunes and the ballads – where his church-inspired vocals really have more room to roam. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ashford & Simpson

Street Opera
Capitol, 1982. Near Mint-
Dang, these guys could never miss! Even in later years, Ashford and Simpson were still going strong – working here in a wonderfully mellow style that's as soulful for the moment as their mid 70s groovers were for that time. The album's got a sweet modern style that's pretty much in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freda Payne

Stares & Whispers
Capitol, 1977. Very Good+
Sweet club grooving from the legendary Freda Payne – a very different album than her initial hits for Holland-Dozier-Holland, and a set that has a mature mix of disco and modern soul! Production is by Tony Camillo and Frank Wilson – and the tracks are long and nicely stretched out ... LP, Vinyl record album

Taste Of Honey

Taste Of Honey
Capitol, 1978. Very Good+
Probably the most successful album the Mizell Brothers ever produced, and a fine set of uptempo groovers from this female soul duet! There's some nice jazzy moments underneath the catchy lyrics, and in a way, the album's style is sort of a blueprint for the sound that would emerge over the next ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sun

Sun Power
Capitol, 1977. Very Good+
A solid smoker from Sun – the kind of tight funk set that made the group one of the greatest soul acts on Capitol Records during the late 70s! There's a wicked Ohio vibe going on throughout – everything focused together, and right on the money – even despite the large size of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donna Washington

Going For The Glow
Capitol, 1981. Very Good+
A tremendous sophomore set from Donna Washington – working perfectly here in the hands of Capitol soul maestro Chuck Jackson! Jackson's touch is wonderful here – just the right blend of cool and class, groove and grace that he brought to some of the label's best at the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Jackson

Just Like The First Time
Capitol, 1986. Very Good+
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.) LP, Vinyl record album

Donna Washington

For The Sake Of Love
Capitol, 1980. Sealed
Nice batch of modern soul tracks by this obscure vocalist from the late 70s. The album's a mix of uptempo and mellower titles, but Donna's voice is nice and soulful, and the record sports some good arrangements by Benjamin Wright and Tom Tom 84. Titles include I'll Let Nothing Separate Us", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Natalie Cole

Unpredictable
Capitol, 1977. Near Mint-
An album that reunites Natalie Cole with the smooth soul team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancey – the team who did such a great job with Natalie's Capitol debut, and who really continue the groove here too! The album's got a rock-solid approach through and through – a quality that has ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kitty & The Haywoods

Love Shock
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+
Nice lost bit of Chicago female soul, produced by the Ohio Players, and with a sound that sounds a lot like their Mercury albums of the time – that is, with some hard slap-bass funk on most cuts, and some slower spacier sounds on others. Includes one of our fave tracks these days, the spacey ... LP, Vinyl record album
