New World Generation

LP (Item 678452) Now Again, Late 70s/Early 80s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Genius work from a little-known group – but a great one too! New World Generation were an early 80s combo from the Boston scene – but they've got a groove that's very much in keeping with some of the most righteous funk acts of the late 70s – particularly those that brought a nice degree of spiritualism to their music, like James Mason or RAMP! This sweet little set carries some great echoes of that generation – a warmer, jazzier style that most other early 80s soul music you'd hear from elsewhere – and a richly-conceived vision that has New World Generation sounding way different than your usual funk, club, or boogie act of the time. Now Again have really outdone themselves with the package – bringing together rare tracks from almost-gone tape sources, and putting together a set of notes that really helps illuminate this amazing batch of music! Titles include "Sunshine", "Curious Soul", "Dreamland", "One Of A Kind", "I'm Feelin' Fine", "Mystical Planet", "New World Generation" and more. 2LP version has 11 tracks in all: including the bonus "Sunshine (Alternate Mix)" and "Curious Soul (Alternate Mix)". Also comes with a 16-page booklet with rare photosand extensive liner notes.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a bumped corner.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Odetta

Odetta Sings
Polydor, Early 70s. Very Good
Quite different than the usual Odetta album – and a record that has the folk singer running through some hipper more modern numbers, often with a bit of a funky twist! Some tracks were recorded in Muscle Shoals with a small combo that includes Roger Hawkins, Eddie Hinton, and Jimmy Johnson ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elgins

Darling Baby
VIP, 1966. Very Good
The Elgins were a great little group on Motown's VIP label during the 60s – and they had a sweet falsetto soul style that reminds us a lot of the best work by The Miracles during the same time. Lead singer Saundra Edwards has a style that's similar to Smokey Robinson's high vocals – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mandrill

Composite Truth
Polydor, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the greatest records ever from Mandrill – a set that has the group tightening things up and getting even more funky than on their first few records, but with a vibe that's still nicely loose and spontaneous overall! The set's got Mandrill perfectly balanced between jazz-tinged funk ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1972. Near Mint-
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heaven & Earth

Fantasy
Mercury, 1979. Very Good
A crowning moment from the Chicago scene of the late 70s – the second Mercury album from Heaven & Earth, and a stunner all the way through! The set's an undisputed groover right from the start – thanks to the massive arrangements from the great Floyd Morris – an artist who ... 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

Kool & The Gang

Good Times
De-Lite, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Often overlooked amidst the bigger early albums by Kool & The Gang – but a totally solid record of funky stuff that's right up there with their best work! The band is super-tight at this point, grooving along in a hard drum, heavy bass, wah wah guitar frenzy – and even the vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
Solar, 1979. Very Good
This mighty group does way more here than just Whisper in your ear – as they're completely on top of their game, ending the 70s with a wickedly sharp sound that would help them stand strong for years to come! The group started in fragile harmony soul modes, grew with confidence in the 70s, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Norman Connors

You Are My Starship
Buddah, 1976. Very Good
A masterpiece of mellow soul and jazzy grooves from the groundbreaking Norman Connors – an album that sails to the stars on a sweet blend of mellow moments and more upbeat tracks too! The record features some crucial vocal talents from Michael Henderson and Phyllis Hyman – both ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funkadelic

Hardcore Jollies
Warner, 1976. Very Good Gatefold
One of the sweetest Funkadelic albums from the middle period, and a good batch of tracks that often gets overlooked in the haze of similar Pedro Bell covers! Don't miss this one, though – because it is a very strong album – key in the shift from more guitar-based funk to more groove-ori ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Sermon!
Blue Note, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of the Jimmy Smith "jam session" Blue Notes, with a large group that includes Lee Morgan, Lou Donaldson, George Coleman, Tina Brooks, and Art Blakey – nearly all of whom take long solos and dig deep to compete with each other. 3 long tracks, "The Sermon", "JOS&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boogie Down Productions

By All Means Necessary
Jive, 1988. Very Good
Seminal late 80s righteous hip hop from KRS and Boogie Down Productions! By All Means Necessary shows remarkable change in lyrical style from Criminal Minded, delivering a eavy dose of knowledge at a time when so much hip hop was all about rocking the party. KRS's lyrics here mark a serious turn ... LP, Vinyl record album
