Greatest Hits

LP (Item 73232) SOUL, 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-
Although Gladys Knight & The Pips didn't cut their first recordings or their biggest recordings for Soul/Motown, they did still do a pretty nice job at the label – as you'll hear on this nice collection that brings together a nice batch of their best tracks. 12 tracks in all, including "Every Beat Of My Heart","Letter Full Of Tears", "Everybody Needs Love", "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", "The End Of Our Road", "I Wish It Would Rain", "You Need Love Like I Do (Don't You)" and "It Should Have Been Me".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Cover has some edge wear and a cutout notch.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Nitty Gritty

One of our favorite albums by Gladys Knight – a set that seems to have a lot more edge than some of her later work, thanks to some rumbling production from the legendary Norman Whitfield!

SOUL, 1970. Very Good+
Great group vocals by one of Motown's biggest groups to never really make it.

The best example of this is the cut "We Can Make It Baby", but other nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
