Primitive Love

LP (Item 751454) Epic, 1985 — Condition: Very Good+

...

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.

Mtume

Juicy Fruit
Epic, 1983. Sealed
Sweet funky work from Mtume – a set that's nicely heavy on the keyboards, and which really set a new standard in 80s groove at the time! The keyboards are great, and the basslines are too – and Mtume's jazz roots are still nicely in place here – bringing a bit more sophistication ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family Stone

Small Talk
Epic, 1974. Very Good+
Sly's still doing pretty nice for himself in 1974 – with a sound that's perhaps a bit warmer than on the early records, but still nice and soulful – and peppered with a good dose of funk! The groove is really great on the set – bubbling with a more "deep down" feel than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1993. Very Good+
Titles include "Lady Lady", "Never Keeping Secrets", "Rock Bottom", "Saturday", "And Our Feelings", "When Can I See You", and "Well Alright". LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone Davis

Greatest Hits (Epic)
Epic, Late 60s/Mid 70s. Near Mint-
Tyrone! Certainly one of the undisputed masters of the Chicago soul scene, with a voice that was instantly recognizable, and a style that matched raw roots with classy production. This early 80's set brings together 12 of Tyrone's classic sides for the Dakar/Brunswick label. Titles included are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Teena Marie

Emerald City
Epic, 1986. Sealed
Heavy funk from Teena Marie – a self-produced killer for mid 80s Epic Records – done with some even bolder grooves than before, in ways that definitely show the hallmarks of the Prince generation! The 80s was a hell of a good time to be a female funk artist on her own – and Teena ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Jackson

Off The Wall
Epic, 1979. Very Good- Gatefold
This 1979 solo album by Michael is a killer batch of soul grooves – one of his best moments ever, and a crowning cap to a stellar 70s run – both as a younger solo act, and with the whole Jackson family! Quincy Jones produced, and the album's got a funky undercurrent that's really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family Stone

Dance To The Music (original cover)
Epic, 1968. Very Good
Classic funkiness from Sly & The Family Stone – an album that really pushed them to the top of their game, and exploded on the late 60s scene like a righteous funky bomb! The title cut's a mega-hit that you'll recognize right away – but the whole album's great, and is filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joneses

Joneses
Epic, 1977. Very Good+
A killer for the Joneses – probably their strongest album all the way through, thanks to some great production and arrangements by Bobby Eli! The album's got the group taking the fragile harmony style of their earlier records, and filtering it through the Philly powerhouse groove to create a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Jackson

Thriller
Epic, 1982. Near Mint- Gatefold
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peddlers

Three In A Cell
Epic, 1968. Very Good+
A heck of a cool group – with a really wonderful sound! The Peddlers were a late 60s British trio, with a sound that's part soul, part jazz, part supper-club vocals – all done with a clean, clear, hard-grooving approach – and strong instrumentation that often includes a heavy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blackbyrds

Action
Fantasy, 1977. Good Gatefold
A great little sleeper from the Blackbyrds – a record that never gets as much due as their earlier records that have a hard funky feel, but offer instead a tasty batch of smoother jazz funk numbers that show the group still continuing to grow. Donald Byrd's still at the production helm ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1978. Very Good-
Jeffrey Osborne's really emerging strongly here in the mellow soul mode – especially on the album's two great ballad cuts, "Concentrate On You" and "We Both Deserve Each Other", both of which are smooth mellow steppers with a modern soul approach that's slightly less ... LP, Vinyl record album
