Now That I've Got Your Attention

LP (Item 7572) Headfirst, 1981 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A wicked album of dancefloor jazz funk – featuring the vocals and keyboards of Lesette Wilson, an excellent player who's worked on dozens of albums as a studio musician, but only ever got to cut a few sides under her own name! The album's got a warm soulful finish – right up there with the best funky fusion of the late 70s and early 80s, and made even better by Lesette's smooth yet honest vocal approach. The standout cut on here is "Caveman Boogie" – a monster groover with some funked-up Patrice Rushen-styled keyboards – but the whole album's equally great, a treasure trove of lost tunes that makes the album essential in any groove collection! The track list also includes a great cover of Herbie Hancock's "Ai No Corrida", plus the tracks "Saturday Night Groovin", "Elaine", and "Traveling Song". (Cover has a small sticker in one corner.)  © 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.

A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time!
