Good Feelin'

LP (Item 7972) Warner, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

An overlooked chapter in the mainstream rise of New Orleans soul in the 70s – and a great little set arranged and produced by Allen Toussaint during his years on Warner Brothers! The album's got a similar feel to Toussaint's own albums for Warner, although perhaps a bit mellower and more personal overall – with a style that shifts between some sweet midtempo funky numbers and even better ballads and love songs – all sung by Smith with a sweetly crackling voice that we really like, and served up in that "New Orleans via LA" style of Toussaint's later 70s productions. Smith plays piano and sings, and the band includes Toussaint, James Booker, and Leo Nocentelli. Titles include "I'll Be Rolling (With The Punches)", "Take Your Pick", "We Flew Away", "Fooled Ya", and "What Am I To Do".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo pressing. Cover has a promo sticker in one corner.)

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.

One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all!

One In A Million You
Warner, 1980. Near Mint-
Larry Graham hits the slow jam generation – stepping aside from his funkier groove for this classic album – a record that gave the world a huge crossover cut in the title track!

Sherrick

Sherrick
Warner, 1987. Near Mint-
Percolating 80s soul from Sherrick – set to some catchy arrangements of keyboards, bass pedals, and synth drums! The approach here is surprisingly strong for the time, with a groove that's a bit more in the initial 80s groove style of the earlier part of the decade, and quite unusual for ...

Zapp

Zapp II
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
Seminal work from Roger Troutman and Zapp – a killer batch of cuts that forever changed the sound of funk! The group's "wheeeeeeet/whomp!" sound is very firmly in place by the time of this release – and the sound here is even more electric than their debut – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
The Meters take their Crescent City groove in a slightly different direction – giving things a warmer, sunnier feel than their previous records – and bringing in a fair bit more vocals, too – yet still keeping all the right funky elements at the bottom! The move is a bit like ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1984. Very Good+
Classic! The third LP from the Time, and last before Morris Day went off and started his solo career – though by this point Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis had departed the group. Nonetheless, the sound is still tight modern funk, with Jesse Johnson and crew keeping things in the great post-Prince ... LP, Vinyl record album

More Stuff
Warner, 1977. Very Good+
The second album by this band of very successful studio players – and quite a big hit for the group!

Morris Day

Daydreaming
Warner, 1987. Very Good+
Morris Day at the height of his 80s fame – working away from The Time, but in a groove that's still got plenty of Minneapolis funk!

Sly & The Family Stone

Back On The Right Track
Warner, 1979. Sealed
Sly Stone's definitely back on the right track here – returning to the heights of his earlier powers in this late 70s comeback album for Warner Brothers! The record's got a lot of touches of the old Sly funky sound, but it's done in a slightly tighter style too – a bit more polish than ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Faze-O

Good Thang
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+
A definite good thang from Faze-O – easily the masters of snakey funk at the end of the 70s! The set's got loads of great elements that echo the group's Riding High debut – a groove that never goes too far over the top, and which kicks back at a pace that so many others would copy a ...
