Eccentric Soul – Capitol City Soul
LP (Item 754484) Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-
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.
A set that's got one of the more obtuse presentations we've ever seen from Numero – and that's saying a lot, given some of their releases in recent years – but a record that actually takes them back to the kind of rare funk and soul that made us fall in love with the label in the first ...

A great UK-only collection of rare jazz and funk – with titles that include "First Light Of The Morning" by Dexter Wansel, "Coming To You Live" by Charles Earland, "I Ain't Jivin I'm Jammin" by Leon Huff, "Zaius" by Eddie Russ, "Hill Street ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rare funk from one of the greatest labels in the business! King Records is known to many for its classic work with singers like James Brown, Hank Ballard, and Wynonie Harris – but during the later years of the label, they also pressed up a great amount of excellent funky 45s, including many ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great UK-only collection of rare jazz and funk – worth it alone for "Odyssey (part 1)" by Johnny Harris! Other cuts include "Palos" by Willie Bobo, "To Prove My Love" by Ned Doheny, "In The Center" by Rodney Franklin, "You Are The Reason" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Don't let the Euro-looking guys on the cover put you off, because this is one massively soulful set – filled with jazzy grooves that are mostly from the good ol' US of A! Most of the work here is from the super-deep Fantasy Records catalog – and much of it is from the 70s too – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cuts include "Love & Happiness" by Monty Alexander, "Rubber Band Jam" by Ruber Band, "Drum Set" by J.B.L. Speaker Test (or from a "speaker test" album), "Victory Strut" by J. Hines, "Our Generation" by Ernie Hines, and lots more – ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great solo moment from Eugene Record – the singer who'd rose to fame with The Chi-Lites, and who still sounds pretty darn great here on his own! The album follows strongly from the best late styles of Record's previous group – and the tunes are a mix of ballads that Eugene could ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wicked little album that has John Lee Hooker recording in San Francisco with a bunch of the other funky talents gracing the ABC/Impulse label at the time! Like other Bay Area work of the time, there's a nicely messed-up feel to the whole session – and plenty of funky moments bubble up from ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Doug Clark's bawdy frat rock-soul party LPs on the Gross label – with his trademark "blue" material for adult listeners, backed up by raunchy R&B riffing! The general style's a bit dated, but it's also the kind of album that paved the way for Rudy Ray Moore in the 70s. ... LP, Vinyl record album
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... LP, Vinyl record album
Early work by Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, working here with the young Chicago group Manchild – a funky soul outfit that was one of the city's last big new acts of the 70s. The band never really broke the charts that strongly – and on their funky cuts, they sound a bit too much ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic 60s Impressions material, with the legendary lineup firmly in place, and the great Johnny Pate handling all arrangements – really giving them that sense of righteous power that pushed their music past a lot of the previous group soul sounds of the Chicago scene – with a ...
