Give Me Your Love

LP (Item 7773) Buddah, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

The sensuous soul gem from Barbara Mason – a sweetly soulful groover all the way – and one of her strongest records! Give Me Your Love gets our love for a bunch of reasons, but especially for the title track – which is reworking of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love" – which is arranged by Curtis himself. Vince Montana does most of the other arrangements, and you can see traces of Barbara's move into clubland later in the decade – but this one's more about lush, deeply soulful sounds. Leon Huff is on piano and keys, the tunes have incredible backing vocals with Barbara Ingram, Bunny Sigler, Kenny Gamble and others in the chorus – but this is Barbara's show all the way – emoting soulful magic out front! Titles include "Let Me In Your Life", "Bed and Board", "Who Will You Hurt Next", and "You Can Be With the One You Don't Love".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Barbara Mason

Love's The Thing
Buddah, 1975. Near Mint-
A really great step forward for Barbara Mason – a record that's got her working in a more mature mode than before, and a deeper soul style as well! One of the bigger developments of Barbara Mason's career was her participation in the "answer song" cycle that circulated around ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willy Bridges

Bridges To Cross
Buddah, 1977. Near Mint-
A real lost classic from the New York club years of the mid 70s – sweetly soulful tracks recorded at Sigma Sound "North" up in Manhattan – but with the same sweeping, soaring sound as the best Philly work of the time. Willy's a saxophonist, blowing soulfully on a set of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stairsteps (aka Five Stairsteps)

Stairsteps (1970)
Buddah, 1970. Very Good
A really heady set from The Five Stairsteps – a record that shows the group looking older (and tougher!) on the cover, and one that also shows some maturity in their sound too! We're not sure what was in the water at the time, but these guys definitely seem to be drinking in a bit of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isis

Isis
Buddah, 1974. Near Mint-
A great all-girl group from the 70s – and an album that's almost as famous for its nude-painted-silver bodies on the front cover as it is for the grooves on the record! The style here is somewhat in the jazzy rock vein, but with a deeper sense of soul – vocals that could stand well on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cheryl Lynn

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

Songs In The Key Of Life
Tamla, 1976. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A sweet little double LP – one that had some folks saying that Stevie should have stayed away from the "2LP syndrome", but for us a real treasure with lots of hidden gems. Besides the hits "Isn't She Lovely" and "Sir Duke", which were more than enough to carry ... LP, Vinyl record album
Casablanca, Late 70s. Very Good 2LP
Ahh, the dancefloor soul perfection of the beautiful Donna Summer – and classic late 70s production by Giorgio Morodor and Pete Bellotte – songs that are played often, even to this day, but will never be played out! Was this the one that coined the phrase "shipped gold, returned ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prince

Controversy
Warner, 1981. Very Good-
Classic Prince – an album that signaled an end to the first part of Prince's storied career, leaning heavily on his fascination with new wave, mixed with the r&b grooves and 70s funk of his earliest LPs. Prince is definitely in a transitional mode here, the easy politics of the punk era ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1975. Near Mint-
A surprisingly great little album from Freda Payne – recorded after her years with Holland Dozier Holland – but done with a sweet smooth style that's almost southern/modern – and which really works for her voice! The album's got a really unified feel – never too over the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Living Black
Prestige, 1970. Very Good+
A stone cold live date from Charles Earland – recorded in Newark, at just the sort of club where he got his start! The tracks are quite long and openly grooving – even more so than Charles' killer studio sets from the time – and there's a bit of a harder edge here too, thanks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Blue Note 2-fer that brings together some of Gil Evans' great modernist jazz pieces for the World Pacific label. The material was all recorded in New York in 1958 and 1959, and the groups include crack jazz players like Steve Lacy, Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley, Johnn Coles, Elvin Jones, and ...
