Fire & Rain

LP (Item 683185) Mercury, 1972 — Condition: Sealed

(Cover has a cut corner. Shrinkwrap is open on the spine.)

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.

Bohannon

Cut Loose
Mercury, 1979. Very Good
A great set of clubby tunes from Bohannon – a bit discoey, to be sure, but still with plenty of the odd rhythms and odd touches of his earlier work! The tracks here are all long and chunky – made up of strutting drum bits that are far from conventional, often topped by oddly riffing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1983. Very Good
The Gap Band are definitely Jammin on this sweet little set from the early 80s – hitting that fierce funk mode they do so well, with lots of snapping lines at the bottom of the rhythms! The style is trademark Gap all the way through – a percolated approach to funk that's tight, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brook Benton

Songs I Love To Sing
Mercury, 1959. Very Good+
Overlooked genius from Brook Benton – moving past his simple hit style here to work with arranger Belford Hendricks in a set of tunes that's a bit more "singerly". The tracks are mostly ballads and slower, sadder numbers – sung by Brook in a style that's slightly emotive, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cheryl Lynn

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ruby & The Romantics

Ruby & The Romantics
Kapp, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Great work by one of the most sublime soul groups of the 60s! Ruby and the gang had a perfect harmony sound, which they sung to great fame on a few big chart hits – as well as some other more obscure material. Includes their massive hit "Our Day Will Come", plus other great tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Free Life

Free Life
CBS, 1978. Very Good
One of the great late 70s Columbia sets from the Earth Wind & Fire side of the universe – the one and only album by this obscure west coast group, who get some strong help in the studio from Phillip Bailey! Bailey co-produced, and wrote some great songs for the record – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Adams

Heart & Soul
SSS, 1969. Very Good
A lost southern soul classic – recorded by Johnny Adams in Nashville, and done in a great blend of country and soul styles! Johnny's career initially began in New Orleans, where he recorded a number of indie singles – but this was the record that really pushed his career into the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan

Chaka
Warner, 1978. Very Good
The classic late 70s solo debut by Chaka Khan – one that made Chaka a major star, and deservedly so! This beautiful album showed that she could stand very well on her own two feet without the help of Rufus, thank you. Of course, she's got some fantastic help from Arif Mardin, who works as ...

Jon Lucien

Mind's Eye
RCA, 1974. Very Good+
Music beyond description or definition – one of Jon Lucien's legendary albums for RCA – a true pinnacle in the generation of sophisticated 70s soul! The sound here is a unique blend that's never been heard before – and hardly ever since, even though many have tried – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
