Love & Happiness/Take Me To The River

12-inch (Item 68866) London, 1976 — Condition: Very Good
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

✈
One of the most sublime tracks ever recorded by Al Green – and quite possibly THE Al Green tune to most of the world! It's hard to mess with the genius of "Love & Happiness" – from the slow-burning intro, to the punctuated rhythms of the tune, to Al's wonderfully flowing vocal style – and if there ever was a perfectly-done 70s soul tune, this may well be it! "Take Me To The River" is another classic too – beautifully blending the secular and soulful in a wonderful way!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Peoples Potential funk from the height of the 80s cosmic groove era!
