Donny Hathaway

LP (Item 7813) Atco, 1971 — Condition: Good

One of the best albums ever by this legendary Chicago soul star! The album's masterful blend of spiritual soul tracks that plumb the depths of Donny's dark soul – done with a level of sophistication that you won't hear in other soul albums from the time! Classic cuts include "A Song For You", "She is My Lady", "Giving Up", and "Take a Love Song" – plus versions of "Put Your Hand In The Hand" and "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother". The record also includes the great funky cut "Magnificent Sanctuary Band", which has some nice haaaard drums at the beginning, and which has been sampled who knows how many times!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow label stereo pressing with PR etch. Cover has a light stain on back at the top right corner.)

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.

Otis Redding

Love Man
Atco, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
A key posthumous release from Otis Redding – material recorded in 1967 before his untimely early death, released in 1969 to a very eager audience for work from the late soul singer!

Dee Dee Warwick

Turning Around
Atco, 1970. Near Mint-
One of the greatest moments ever from Dee Dee Warwick – and a set that definitely shows her to be one of the more soulful members of her famous family!

Arthur Conley

Shake, Rattle, & Roll
Atco, 1967. Very Good
The second Arthur Conley album for Atlantic – and like the first, a record that really cooks with some great Otis Redding production!

Jimmy James & The Vagabonds

Come To Me Softly
Atco, 1968. Very Good+

John Davis & The Monster Orchestra

Night & Day
SAM, 1976. Very Good
Early work from John Davis and his Monster Orchestra – easily one of the coolest larger groups working on the US disco scene of the 70s – definitely a cut above some of their more mainstream contemporaries! The Davis difference is hard to define, but John definitely gets it right on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jon Lucien

Song For My Lady
Columbia, 1975. Very Good-
Excellent jazzy soul stuff by one of our favorite singers of all time!

LP, Vinyl record album

Bohannon

Insides Out
Dakar, 1974. Very Good-
A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual! Although most of Bohannon's work from the time is up-tempo and funky, side two of this album has some amazing slow spacey cuts – done with a drum sound that's still quite hard, but just slower than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Anglo Saxon Brown

Songs For Evolution
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good
Tremendous work from Anglo Saxon Brown – a Philly group who started out their recording career as Ujima on Epic, where they issued a handful of well-remembered singles – then changed their name and cut this one and only full length set for Atlantic! The album's a stunner all the way ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level!

Mandrill

Mandrill
Polydor, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
A masterpiece of freeform funk from Mandrill – New York group at the start of the 70s, but one who work here with the best longform jamming styles of the Bay Area scene! The combo draw equal influence from jazz, funk, soul, and Latin – using all elements in a unique hybrid that's all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good-
A key set of early work from Betty Everett – and a great document of the strength of her early soul on Vee Jay! Although the title hit is quite familiar (and possibly a bit overplayed), Betty was a great vocalist with a wide command of material even at this early point in her career – ...
