Party Freaks, Come On

LP (Item 7587) Sunshine Sound, 1978 — Condition: Very Good+

A nice late 70s album you might have passed over because of the terrible cover art. "Party Freaks, Come On" was Ron Louis Smith's big dancefloor hit from the late 70's, and it's got a nice uptempo Miami funk groove to it – sort of like the stuff by Jimmy Bo Horne, or other artists from the era. The rest of the set's mostly similar uptempo funk, but there's a couple of nice, crisply produced modern soul numbers in the vein of the Natural High compilations, like "Come On And Do It" and "Love Talk". Also includes "The Worm", "Make Me Know It", "We Like To Party" and "You're My Everything".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has clear tape on all seams and a cutout notch.)

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.

Curtis Mayfield

Back To The World
Curtom, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover!

Triple S Connection

Triple S Connection
20th Century, 1979. Near Mint-
A late group production effort by Bill Bunky Sheppard, the genius behind so many other Chicago groups of the 60's and 70's. The groove's a little disco sounding, but it's still got a great Chi-soul feel to it, and there's some nice vocal harmonies on the best tracks. Titles include "My ... LP, Vinyl record album

Justments
Sussex, 1974. Very Good
A massive 70s album from the great Bill Withers – one that's sometimes overlooked next to his huge crossover records that preceded it – but which is every bit as wonderful!

Two Tons O' Fun

Classic groovers with a solid 80s groove – cut by Martha Wash and Izora Armstead before they went on to become The Weather Girls, and before they got a bit too campy for our tastes! Harvey Fuqua's producing, and the tracks include "Do You Wanna Boogie, Huh?", "Just Us", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shaft
Pickwick, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Groovy version of the Shaft soundtrack, played by the obscure studio group Soul Mann & The Brothers (who are actually led by Sy Mann). The set includes the best cuts from the score, like "Walk From Regio's", "Cafe Regio's", "Theme From Shaft", and "Bumpy's ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1975. Near Mint-
A great mid period sleeper from Barry White – and an album that's not as hit-heavy as his other work from the time, but still equally nice! The album's got a mellower groove than some of Barry's albums of the time – a laidback approach that's going more for an overall sound, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Phenix
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Sweet funky 70s work from Cannonball Adderley – a record that has him revisiting older tunes from his early soul jazz years – but in ways that give them a whole new electric vibe overall!

Ramsey Lewis

Another Voyage
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+
Sweet, funky, and outtasite – one of Ramsey Lewis' greatest albums of the 60s – cut under the supervision of Chicago soul maestro Charles Stepney!

Treasure Chest
Warner, 1974. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold

United Notions
MGM/Metro, 1958. Very Good+
A unique early large group session from pianist Toshiko Akioshi – recorded with a hip group of international players!
