LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Excellent work from Stevie Wonder – and a record that really has him emerging strongly as an adult soul singer! The set's got a joyous power that's undeniable – a sense of pride and place that really points the way at the Stevie of the 70s, and which has Wonder stretching out wonderfully on his vocals. Titles include the stellar "I Was Made To Love Her" – a cut with a choppy groove that made it one of the more unique crossover tunes of the late 60s, and with a complicated mix of vocal and musical bits that still always blows us away. Other tracks include "Baby Don't You Do It", "A Fool For You", "I'd Cry", "Send Me Some Lovin", and the ill-titled "Every Time I See You I Go Wild".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tamla stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a cutout hole and some wear along the bottom)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

An amazing early record from Stevie Wonder – the kind of set that shows what raw power and starmanship he had even at a wee wee age!

Stevie Wonder

Eivets Rednow – Alfie
Motown, 1968. Very Good+
A late 60s all-instrumental set from Stevie Wonder – and a record that shows a real change from his style in the earlier part of the decade – a much more mature move forward, and one that hints at the power of his arrangements in the 70s! As you might guess from the "Alfie" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diana Ross/Michael Masser

Mahogany
Motown, 1975. Very Good+
One of Diana's big cinematic moments of the 70s – and a record that's better than we remember! The theme of the film – "Mahogany" – was covered so many times during the 70s that it's easy to forget how great it is – a sad, slow tune with a meandering vocal that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diana Ross

Boss
Motown, 1979. Very Good+
Diana Ross gets some great assistance on this set – the club classic team of Ashford & Simpson, who help give Diana a groove that's very much like their own great work of the time!

Billy Preston & Syreeta

Billy Preston & Syreeta
Motown, 1981. Very Good+
A nice little follow-up to Billy Preston & Syreeta's work on the Fast Break soundtrack – and a record that's one of the few key sides to carry the older Motown duet soul mode firmly into the 80s! There's a great sense of balance here – one that uses Syreeta's sweeter vocal approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mary Jane Girls

Mary Jane Girls
Motown, 1983. Very Good
The great first album from The Mary Jane Girls – easily their best, and an 80s pop soul delight all the way through! Rick James is firmly at the helm of the quartet for this release – and although the sound has elements of James' own crossover funk of the time, there's also an approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Commodores
Motown, 1977. Very Good
A classic self-titled set from The Commodores – not their debut album, but a record that really broke them out of the box and exposed the group to a huge new audience!
