Betty Everett & The Impressions

LP (Item 781115) United, 1969 — Condition: Sealed

(Shrinkwrap has some tears and sticker spots.)

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.

Raw and raunchy R&B by Etta James – cut for Kent in the years before she recorded for Chess, and with a much harder-hitting approach than her later more famous work! The set's a 60s LP that compiles tunes from the late 50s – and tracks include "I'm A Fool", "Tough ... LP, Vinyl record album

Free Yourself
Black Fire, 1977. Near Mint-
An early record by Experience Unlimited – better known to most of the world as EU, the DC funk outfit that went onto become pretty big in the GoGo scene, and who scored big with the 80s party cut "Da Butt". This one's nothing like that stuff – and instead catches the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Westbound (UK), Early 70s/2017. Sealed 3LP Gatefold
The classic sound of Funkadelic, reworked by a key selection of contemporary talents from the Detroit scene – but never in a way that wrecks the originals at all!

United Artists, 1974. Very Good+
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all!

Isaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Your Man Is Home Tonight
TMain, 1982. Very Good+
Classic bit of independent soul from the south, with a sweet bluesy feel, and surprisingly modern production that brings out the best in Tony's great voice.

General Caine

Girls
Tabu, 1982. Very Good+
General Caine's got plenty of girls on the cover, and plenty of funk in his groove – that bass-heavy style that made Caine one of the better mainstream funk acts of the time!

Marlena Shaw

Take A Bite
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+
A nice little album that continues Marlena's 70s experiments in updating her jazzy vocal style to a sweet modern soul groove. As always, Marlena shows that she can handle a wide range of styles – from uptempo dancefloor material to more tender ballads, sparkling in a way that few other ... LP, Vinyl record album
ESP, 1965. Near Mint-
A seminal set from Sun Ra – even if it's one of his few 60s albums not on the Saturn label! The set was done for ESP during the glory days of that avant powerhouse – a perfect match, given the Arkestra's relocation to New York, and the label's ability to reach out to big new audiences ...
