Garden Of Love Light

LP (Item 79471) Atlantic, 1976 — Condition: Very Good

Narada Michael Walden's first album – and a surprisingly complex approach to spiritual soul, handled with some great guest guitar work by Jeff Beck and Carlos Santana! The approach is somewhere between 70s rock fusion and smooth soul – done with a tight, professional style that persisted on most of Walden's albums from the time. Titles include "You Got The Soul", "Delightful", "First Love", "Meditation", "White Night", and "You Are Love".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Roberta Flack

Quiet Fire
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+
Great small combo work by Roberta Flack, recorded early in her career, when she was still one of the hippest things around – and it's among her best records! Roberta's really come into her own as vocalist at this point and solidifying here personal style – with that clear tone and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Esther Phillips

And I Love Him (pink cover)
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good-
The classic Atlantic LP that turned Esther from a rough-hewn, junkie, juvenile R&B singer into a sensitive interpreter of ballads, standards, and pop tracks. Her version of the Beatles title track is amazing, and she sings it with a fragility and sensitivity that Lennon and McCartney could ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara Lewis

Best Of Barbara Lewis
Atlantic, Mid 60s/1971. Near Mint-
Some of the best non-Motown soul to ever come out of Detroit, and a brilliant example of the uptown soul sound of the 60's! Nearly every track's a winner, and this comp of Barbara's best 60's stuff includes lots of classics like "Baby, I'm Yours", "Hello Stranger", "Stop ... LP, Vinyl record album

Average White Band

Average White Band
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
AWB's first for Atlantic – and a nice slice of funk that proves that they can mix it up with the best groups of the 70s! The record's got plenty of sweet electric keyboards over smooth funky basslines – and as the years go by, the band's white boy vocals don't sound nearly as bad as we ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
An amazing record from the team of Flack & Hathaway – one of the hippest duos in soul! Individually, each had taken the music to new heights and new audiences, through the use of jazzy phrasing and sophisticated lyrics, while never selling out in the way that earlier pop soul acts had ...

Jimmie & Vella Cameron

Jimmie & Vella
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
Obscure bit of soul from this duo who also recorded an earlier record on Imperial. The vibe is sort of a straight 70s groove, and Vella's vocals are a bit more upfront than Jimmie's. The cuts are all originals, and titles include "Rain", "Chica Boom", "Door Is Open", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Aretha's Gold
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
It's hard to believe that after just a few short years of recording for Atlantic records, Aretha Franklin could come up with enough gold records to warrant a full album of hits for the label – but that's definitely the case with this classic collection from 1969! The fantastic evolution of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Charles

Great Ray Charles
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good-
More of a jazz album than the early vocal singles of Ray Charles – but a set that definitely is as great as promised by the title! Ray's in the lead on piano – taking some strong solos, and showing us what a sensitive phraseologist he can be when needed – really showcasing that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis Coffey

Goin' For Myself
Sussex, 1972. Very Good-
Classic funky groovers from Dennis Coffey – with his hard guitar sound gettin' all fuzzy over some loud drums and funky Sussex production! This one's still very much on the "Scorpio" vibe, when the label was keeping things nice and hard – and before Dennis got a bit hooked ... LP, Vinyl record album

Voices Of East Harlem

Right On Be Free
Elektra, Early 70s. Good+ Gatefold
The landmark first album by this legendary 70s soul group – and one with a feel that's much different than their later work! The style here is much more strongly righteous than their sweeter soul of the mid 70s – with a pronounced gospel influence that focuses most strongly on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray Moore

Eat Out More Often
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good-
Classic stuff – Rudy's first album, and a fitting launch to his famous career of party records and live club performances! The cover's got Rudy in front of a nude black model, laying back on the couch, and encouraging him to do the thing that's implied by the title – but the record ... LP, Vinyl record album
