Waiting For Little Milton

LP (Item 78245) Stax, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-
No waiting here – as Little Milton's guitar is plenty sweet throughout – making the album a key cooker from his classic years on Stax! The album's an essential effort in the shift between grittier urban blues and some of the tighter, more warmed up sounds that played big in the 70s – hardly a commercial move at all, but a nice step up to a new maturity in the genre, which King definitely helped to forge. Tracks include the uptempo funked up numbers "It's Amazing" and "Woman You Don't Have To Be So Cold" – and Milton does a sort of take off on Isaac Hayes with the longer "That's How Strong Love Is" on side 2 which opens with a lengthy monologue and is filled it out by more lush string laden production and backing vocals from the Soul Children. Other tracks include "What It Is", "Little Blue Bird", and "The Thrill Is Gone".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

A great title for this second set from Taj Mahal – because the sound here is even more stripped-down and natural than on his first LP!

Motion
Warner, 1978. Near Mint-
A bit of a change for Allen Toussaint – the kind of an album that makes good use of all the connections he was making during the early 70s, when he was becoming the darling of the Warner Brothers scene in LA.
