How To Be A Zillionaire!

LP (Item 702474) Mercury, 1985 — Condition: Very Good+

(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

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.

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

Jerry Butler & Brenda Lee Eager

Love We Have
Mercury, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Duets between Jerry Butler and Brenda Lee Eager – done as serious, adult oriented soul tracks, one side of the album in an optimistic "The Love We Have" setting, the other in a sadder "The Love We Had" setting – both of them handled in a mode that's far far different ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio Players

Fire
Mercury, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
One of the biggest albums ever for Ohio Players – a set that took their earlier funk sound and targeted firmly at the mainstream with a lean, mean groove that a million other groups copied at the time! There's still plenty of the soul of the early years in the group's approach here – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Central Line

Central Line
Mercury, 1981. Very Good+
The sweetly grooving first album from Central Line – one of the few British soul groups to really kick it in the early 80s scene – with a catchy dancefloor sound that both encapsulates the era and lays down a killer groove for the ages! The album is a blend of bass riffing, keyboards, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Mercury

Eric Mercury
Mercury, 1975. Very Good+
We can never really figure this guy out – and from the sound of the record, he's in the same place we are! The album's sort of a mix of smooth soul and down-home stylings – but it's never enough in either camp to have any sort of cohesiveness. Mercury's got a voice that could be great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Berry & The Steve Miller Band

Live At The Fillmore Auditorium
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good
The cover's a bit trippy, but the sound is anything but – and instead stands as a strong tribute to the way the early work of Chuck Berry continued to influence a generation of rockers well through the 60s! Berry's the frontman, and gets plenty of chance to sing and sear on guitar – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dee Dee Warwick

Foolish Fool
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good
Excellent work from Dee Dee Warwick – Dionne's more soulful sister, and a heck of a singer! The record's got a mix of uptown soul production and deeper soul styles, with a sophisticated style that reminds us of Chicago work by singers like Joann Garrett, Marlena Shaw, or Ruby Andrews – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Louis Jordan

Man, We're Wailin
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of the heaviest of Louis' mid 50s recordings – recorded live, or so we're supposed to think by the subtitle – which reads "Louis Jordan & His Brilliant Tympany 5 In A Typical Late, Late, Late Night Club Performance"! Louis' voice and sax are better than we remember ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGs

Booker T Set
Stax, 1969. Very Good
Later work from Booker T and crew – an album that always gets lost in the shuffle, but which also includes lots of great moments, and a bit more funk than in earlier years! The rhythm section's loosening up a bit on the set – led by the mighty Al Jackson, and working past that tight ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stylistics

Rockin' Roll Baby
Avco, 1973. Very Good
The third album by The Stylistics – and a set that's still very much in the high-harmony territory of their first two classics! Thom Bell's still very firmly on deck this time around – arranging, producing, and writing a good deal of the material too – and the Sigma Sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
