Doin Alright

LP (Item 66961) Capitol, 1981 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.60 11

Smooth and sophisticated 80s soul from O'Bryan – most of it co-produced with Don Cornelius, of Soul Train fame, who helped O'Bryan get his start. The album's got a few tracks that go a bit over the top, but the better tunes are kicked back and nice and mellow – grooving in a modern Capitol Rare mode, with some slight pop soul touches added in on the vocals. Tracks include "It's Over", "Love Has Found A Way", "Doin Alright", "Can't Live Without Your Love", and "Still Water (Love)". (Cover has some light wear.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Capitol/EMI, 1983. Near Mint-
A lesser-remembered gem from Brass Construction – and a tight bit of 80s groove that builds nicely on the group's ensemble funk work of the 70s! The group's still quite large, with a brassy finish that befits their name – but there's also a nice undercurrent of funky guitar, bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Rock
Volt, 1971. Very Good
An album that's every bit as great as the title might imply – heavy guitar-based funk from the second version of The Bar-Kays – one that uses the new instrumental focus to push a groove that's much more black rock than before! There's still a bit of trumpet from the past, but the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Scepter, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
The monumental debut of BT Express – and an excellent funk album that often gets overlooked by fans of the music because of the band's bigger fame as a disco group! This first record has the combo grooving hard and instrumentally – in the mode of a tight blacksploitation soundtrack, ... LP, Vinyl record album
