LP, Vinyl record album

(€15.04 || £13.07 || ¥1888) (approx.)

An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics! The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at the time – still with all the fuzzy haired elements of earlier years, but presented with a bit more focus – and a powerhouse swing that really drives the tracks home with a funky groove on the bottom! There's a flowing sort of energy here that almost makes you think that the whole thing just emerged naturally from the brain of George Clinton – but all ensemble players have a strong hand in the action, and really get some great moments in on the set. Cuts include "Gamin' On Ya", "Do That Stuff", "Children Of Production", and "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)". (Recent "Respect The Classics" reissue in a standard cover. Cover has marker through the barcode.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Invictus/Sequel (UK), 1971. Near Mint- (reissue)
An insane bit of fuzzed-out funk! This is Parliament's rare first album – a trippy batch of tunes that come off of Clinton's experimentation in the Detroit soul scene, infused by the rock-heavy energy of the city at the time, and probably a heck of a lot of cannabis, too!

One For The Road
Casablanca, Mid 70s. Near Mint-
An excellent album of obscure mellow soul – very much in the same mode as Leroy Hutson or Ronnie McNeir's best work from the 70s! Like those singers, Greg was an artist who'd spent a lot of time writing and arranging for other artists – but on his own, on an album like this, he really ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Remember Yesterday
Casablanca, 1977. Very Good+
Sweet grooves from Donna Summer – who was still a rising star at this point in the 70s! The title is an honest one – for an album with songs that look back at 60s and earlier 70s soul songcraft – and even earlier than that – mostly via the groovy backup vocals. So, Ms. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Welcome To My Room
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good
A mellow soul masterpiece from Randy Brown – a crucially-overlooked talent from the late 70s, working here with a totally put-together vibe!

Cruisin
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good
A real breakout album for The Village People – thanks largely to the hit "YMCA", which had surprising play at the time – and has gone onto become one of those ballpark hits that everyone seems to sing completely un-self-consciously! The group are still working here in a New ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stylistics
Avco, 1971. Very Good
A masterpiece of harmony soul – one of THE all-time greats of the genre, and a lasting treasure from The Stylistics!

Live & More
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
