Let The Good Times Roll (Aladdin)

LP (Item 644537) Aladdin, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good-

The start of a legend – an early album by the New Orleans soul duo who are famous for the title cut – and who serve up a whole host of other great tracks here!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rare original pressing! Vinyl is clean, and has light marks, but plays well overall. Cvoer has yellowing tape on the seams.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Buddah, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great stuff from this legendary Chicago soul group! Although the band was trying to break out of their sweeter image as a young group (the cover has them looking pretty dope and wearing these wild pimpin' outfits), they're still pretty darn sweet and soulful here, with only a hint of the later ...

Rotary Connection

Aladdin
Cadet, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Heavenly mystical soul from Rotary Connection! If you know the group, you know the deal already: Minnie Riperton sings vocals on a number of cuts, and the great Charles Stepney's producing and arranging, with a super-baroque style that's still light years ahead of most producers in pop! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cliff Nobles & Co

Horse
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good+
A funky instrumental classic – with a groove that was copied by a huge amount of other groups! Cliff and crew take the funky 45 sound into the mainstream – vamping and comping in tight choppy grooves that were perfect for dances like The Horse, The Jerk, and some of the other harder ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan

Chaka Khan
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
Great stuff – and one of the gems that Arif Mardin produced for Chaka during her immediate solo years after leaving Rufus. Mardin's sweet soulful arrangements are a perfect fit for Chaka's voice – not only on soul tracks like "Tearin' It Up", "Got To Be There", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Withers

Still Bill
Sussex, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Bill Withers' second album – even more wonderful than the first! The record's a perfect summation of all that made Bill so great – warm raspy vocals, sweet soulful production, mature songwriting, and just the right use of acoustic guitar to accent all the best elements in the music! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Faze-O

Riding High
SHE, 1977. Very Good+
A spacey soul classic – with a sound that never gets old! Faze-O will be forever remembered for their massive cut "Riding High", the leadoff on this album – a stretched out slow funk jam that has amazing keyboards, floating guitars, and a super-dope groove that's stayed fresh ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family Stone

There's A Riot Goin' On
Epic, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
A wonderful album from Sly and crew – moving way past the straight funk approach of earlier records, into a complicated crossover soul style that's filled with warmth and righteousness. Despite the political tone implied by the "riot" in the title and the co-option of the American ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry Harris

Preminado
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+
An album that's as evocative as its title – one that features a young Barry Harris stepping out with the kind of sound that first got him noticed right away! There's a bit of a bop influence in the way he hits the keys on the set, but the overall approach is often more lyrically soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & Mel Lewis Orchestra

Monday Night
Solid State, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Genius work from the Jones & Lewis group – easily one of their best albums! If you've ever wondered why these guys got the chance to make so many records, check out this excellent early set and hear them at their finest. The group's a kick-ass one – with a host of all-star players ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Ensemble Of Chicago

Fanfare For The Warriors
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
A beautiful little record from the Art Ensemble of Chicago – and although performed for a bigger label than some of their previous indie outings, the set may be one of the most dynamic the group ever recorded! Atlantic Records is clearly giving the group a lot of space here – as they're ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steady B

What's My Name
Jive, 1987. Good
Steady B's second major label album, but still in the mid 80s Pop Art style, proving you don't need much more than two turntables, a drum machine and a mic to make good hip hop. Okay, maybe some fly Cazals and Fila track suit. 12 tracks in all, including "The Hilltop", "Don't ... LP, Vinyl record album
