LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

An incredible album from The Miracles – truly the Renaissance that's promised in the title, and proof that they could do amazing things away from Smokey! Of course, they've got a heck of a lot of great help on this set – from some of Motown's best, like Willie Hutch, Fonce Mizell, Freddie Perren, and even Marvin Gaye, who wrote and produced the album's incredible track "I Love You Secretly", a stone treasure that's as good as any of Marvin's recordings from the time! The whole album's great, though, filled with wonderful songs that never got their due – and which will make this one stand for years as a treasure to fans of harmony soul! Titles include "I Didn't Realize The Show Was Over", "I Love You Secretly", "I Don't Need No Reason", "Don't Let It End", and "What Is A Heart Good For". (Cover has a cutout notch & light wear.)  © 1996-2016, 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.

Hello Broadway
Tamla, 1964. Very Good
Nothing too Broadway here – as the album's a warmly soulful set that shows a mellower side of Marvin Gaye for the 60s – the deeper, more jazz-inclined side of his vocals, which makes for a nice contrast to his bigger hits of the time! Gene Page handled most of the arrangements, so you ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Masterpiece
Gordy, 1973. Very Good+
One of the later Norman Whitfield efforts for The Temptations – a masterpiece of baroque harmony soul, touched with bits of the righteous sound that Whitfield brought to the group a few years before.

On The Swinging Side
Sounds Of Swing, Late 40s. Very Good+
Goofy swingin' stuff from the great bandleader who also managed to arrange music for cartoons, invent his own instruments, and come up with wild studio techniques. This LPs got 16 tracks of hard to find 78 rpm material. The groups are pretty small, and feature some great unknown players. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzland, 1961. Good+
One of Johnny Lytle's monster vibes 'n organ LPs from the early 60's. Released on the Jazzland subsidiary of Riverside, and a tough one to find! The album comes complete with the great original track "Lela", a jazz dance classic if there ever was one, and other nice tracks like "Hap ... LP, Vinyl record album
