Keni Burke

LP (Item 7248) Dark Horse, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

The first great solo album from Five Stairstep Keni Burke – really recreating himself as a completely different sort of artist – one who's all grown up, and able to work in this jazzy approach to modern soul that's completely great all the way through! Keni produced the record himself – and he gives things a sound that's tight, but never commercial – kind of a precursor to his "Rising To The Top" groove at RCA, but a bit more personal – with a Cali soul vibe that's very different than Burke's Chicago roots, with a quality that's a bit more indie than you might expect from the major label status of the record. The whole thing's great – and titles include "You Are All Mine", "Give All You Can Give", "Day", "From Me To You", "Shuffle", "Tell Me That You Love Me", and "Keep On Singing". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some ring & edge wear, and some light staining.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Curtis
Curtom, 1970. Good+ Gatefold
Curtis Mayfield's first solo album after leaving the Impressions, and it's a firey album of political soul that shows just how much he was holding back when he was with the group. The tracks are longer, angrier, more experimental, and a lot more funky. Standout tracks include "If There's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ...

Mercury, 1978. Very Good
Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group! The album may well be the best the group ever recorded – and it features some stellar ballad work produced with a nice spacey tone, almost in a Rose Royce mellow mode – by Jerry Butler's Fountain Productions team and by Clarence ...
