Twice As Sweet

LP (Item 71883) Capitol, 1980 — Condition: Very Good

Twice as sweet, and mighty neat – a killer set from Taste Of Honey, and one that has the girls moving away from Mizell Brothers help in the studio, and getting some great grooves from George Duke! Duke brings in all his best jazzy soul to the duo – lots of keyboards stepping around the tight vocals, and a way of laying together the rhythms so that they're nicely focused, yet never too commercial – that same great balance that George had in his own music at the time! Titles include the single "Sukiyaki", plus "Ain't Nothin' But A Party", "Rescue Me", "I'm Talkin Bout You", "She's A Dancer", and "Don't Lead Me On".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Jimmy G & The Tackheads

Federation Of The Tackheads
Capitol, 1985. Very Good+
An obscure early 80s electro effort from George Clinton – all the more surprising, given how much he pretended to hate hip hop! At some level, Jimmy G & The Tackheads are mostly an 80s groove outfit – using lots of bass and keys to pop and lock the groove, while throwing in plenty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Angela Bofill

Intuition
Capitol, 1988. Very Good
A great late 80s comeback for Angela Bofill – and the kind of record that shows that she was still head and shoulders above most of her contemporaries! There's a richness here that most of Angie's contemporaries couldn't muster at the time – a style that stretches back to her deeper ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of two classic live albums that Maze cut during the 80s – even more proof that the Maze style of soul music was not only thriving, but succeeding strongly outside the studio, and regardless of airplay and album sales! The general groove is very similar to the band's classic work from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Rawls

Carryin' On!
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of Lou's excellent Capitol sessions produced by David Axelrod! The record's not an outwardly funky one, but Axe gives the set a nice loping groove on the best tracks – the sound that he brought to his best work with Rawls, and which really put him over the top back in the 60s.

Lou Rawls with Les McCann Ltd

Stormy Monday
Capitol, 1962. Very Good
One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album. Most of the numbers are bluesy ones, but as usual, Lou manages to give them his own hip twist ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
All the best elements for Lou's Capitol work are in place – arrangements by HB Barnum, production by David Axelrod, and a hip batch of pop tracks that really push Lou into a whole new dimension! Axelrod really knows how to bring up the bass in the arrangements, and create just the right ... LP, Vinyl record album
United, Late 50s. Very Good+
Raw and raunchy R&B by Etta James – cut for Kent in the years before she recorded for Chess, and with a much harder-hitting approach than her later more famous work! The set's a 60s LP that compiles tunes from the late 50s – and tracks include "I'm A Fool", "Tough ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good+
Some of our favorite tunes ever by Jerry Butler – a great collection that brings together some of his hits and some of his lesser known work for Vee Jay. The Iceman style is very firmly in place here – and next to hits like "I Stand Accused" and "Need To Belong", ... LP, Vinyl record album
