Givin' It Straight To You

LP (Item 691503) A&M, 1986 — Condition: Very Good+

(Cover has a cutout notch and light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Straight To The Point
A&M, 1980. Very Good+
Atlantic Starr definitely get straight to the point on this set – bursting out strongly with an upbeat groove from the very first note – all produced to perfection by maestro Bobby Eli, in the same manner as some of his other great late 70s work for other artists! The group's a big one ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's My Pleasure
A&M, 1975. Near Mint-
Billy Preston's getting some really wonderful help on this mid 70s set – assistance from a cool array of talents that includes Syreeta, Stevie Wonder, Shuggie Otis, and Keni Burke! Most of these guests artists only appear on a song or two each, but they really help Preston expand his sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M/Horizon, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
Karma was a group made up of some of the better west coast studio jazz players of the 70s – including Oscar Brashear, Ernie Watts, and George Bohanon – but despite the strength of their individual members, the group never really put things together all that strongly. They're not bad, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1974. Very Good
The first record by LTD – and an excellent bit of 70s soul that has the group working at their tightest! The tracks are shorter and a lot more focused than on later albums, and in a way, they sort of remind us of the ensemble funky soul sound that you'd hear on some of the early New Birth ...

Booker T & Priscilla

Booker T & Priscilla
A&M, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Memphis goes to California – with surprising results! The album's one of a few that Booker T cut after splitting with the MGs – of legendary Stax Records fame – and it's completely different than his earlier sides, and not in a bad way! Book recorded the set in California with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & Priscilla Jones

Chronicles
A&M, 1973. Very Good-
Booker T's definitely into a great new groove here – one that really extrapolates his Memphis roots through the haze of early 70s California – coming up with some wonderful sounds along the way! There's a definite A&M vibe to the record – that mix of rootsy modes and hipster ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1974. Very Good+
The second album from LTD – very much a funky soul record, with lots of heavy bass and strong boogie touches on the groove! The tracks are all pretty darn catchy, and mostly in a midtempo romping sort of mode – with great lead vocals from Jeffrey Osborne, sounding (nicely) rougher than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

You Send Me
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

This Old Heart Of Mine
Tamla, 1966. Near Mint-
The Isley Brothers on Motown – a really key step forward for the group, who find a whole new level of soul with help from the Holland Dozier Holland team! There's a warmth here missing from previous Isleys material – that rough edge that was more part of their rocking years, softened a ... LP, Vinyl record album
