Johnny Reason

LP (Item 6923) Fantasy, 1977 — Condition: Very Good+

A lost bit of jazzy soul from the late 70s – produced by Wayne Henderson with the same great style as his other Fantasy Records sets at the time! There's some uptempo numbers, but our favorite cuts are the mellower ones – and the great Bobby Lyle plays some nice keyboard lines on the set as well. Tracks include "Love Is Such a Lovely Sound", "For You to Lose Your Love", and "For You".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some wear and a promo stamp.)

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.

Side Effect

Rainbow Visions
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+
More great jazzy stepping grooves from this Fantasy band. Wayne Henderson's still at the helm on production, and there's some nice cuts, including "I'm A Winner", and the mellow "She's A Lady", plus "Peace Of Mind", "Falling In Love Again" and the title ... LP, Vinyl record album

City Life
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold
A fantastic album from this legendary jazz funk combo – a bit smoother than their first, but that's the great thing about it!

Blackbyrds

Better Days
Fantasy, 1980. Very Good-
Sweet warm grooves from the mighty Blackbyrds – a set that has George Duke working with the group, giving them some of the electric vibe of his own great work! The sound is less sharply funky than the early days of the group, but still mighty nice – and titles include "Do It ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Magnolias
Polydor, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Classic New Orleans funk featuring backing from the "New Orleans Project" that includes the Gaturs' Willie Tee, Earl Turbinton, and other Crescent City session stalwarts like Larry Panna and Julius Farmer. Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80's, including ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1974. Very Good-
An insanely wonderful album! Shuggie Otis is the son of Johnny Otis – the LA R&B maestro who was moving heavily into funk at the end of the 60s – and he has this tripped out, super-dope guitar style that he played to strong effect on Johnny's albums of the late 60s and early 70s, ...

Sylvers

Sylvers
Pride, 1972. Very Good
The first album by The Sylvers – a soulful band made up of youngsters from the Los Angeles scene, but who had a lot more going on than some of the other kiddie-soul bands of the early 70s! The group's a sextet at this point, with four male voices and two female ones – coming across as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good
A killer live set by Rufus Thomas – recorded right at the height of his funky comeback, before a very right-on crowd at PJ's Nightclub in LA! Rufus was always a great entertainer, and he really opens up in this live setting – doing some nice versions of "Do The Funky Chicken" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kool & The Gang

Best Of Kool & The Gang
De-Lite, Early 70s. Very Good
This one's called a "best of", but it's really one of the group's first albums, and it pulls together a host of great early tracks, some of which were only ever on singles! The record's got a shiny gold cover, and it's rare as hen's teeth! Titles include "The Penguin", "Le ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Young, Gifted & Black
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good
A beautiful album that perfectly mixes both sides of Aretha – the earlier hard-hitting soulster, and the developing vocalist with a rich talent for more sophisticated material. The album features the anthemic title cut in Aretha's famous version – plus the sample favorite "Rock ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1974. Very Good+
One of the best things to ever happen to The Persuaders – a wonderfully rich album that has the group still sparkling strongly, long after their early hits! The harmonies are wonderful – very much on par with the bigger names at Philly International at the time – and recorded ... LP, Vinyl record album
SOUL, 1969. Very Good+
Seminal sounds from this great Detroit group – and a key look at their less-remembered music of the 60s! Although Fantastic Four are probably best remembered for their later disco work – including the Alvin Stone album on Westbound – back in their early days, they were a great ...
