Get On Up & Get Away

LP (Item 7632) Bunky, 1967 — Condition: Sealed

Classic Chicago soul recorded under the aegis of the great Bill Bunky Sheppard! The group was one of the best that worked with Sheppard – and they really take advantage of his odd way of producing harmonies, in the style that he'd worked out earlier in the 60s with The Sheppards. Arrangements are by Tom Tom Washington – and the cuts bounce along in that loping groove that was clearly becoming the trademark of the Chicago scene. You probably already know the hit "Get On Up" and the follow-up "And Get Away" – but the album's great all the way through, and features many original cuts like "Listen to Me", "When I'm Ready", "No Doubt About It", and "My Sweet Baby".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed original pressing. Cover has a cutout hole, and a bumped corner.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.
