LP (Item 80445) RCA, 1982 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

One that we heard way too much when it was out, but which we kind of love now! The album's part of H&O's great comeback years in the early 80s – a time when they were mixing their white boy soul with some nice 80s groove and electro touches, often going for a spare mix of groove and vocals that's really compelling. Includes the sublime "Maneater", everything that was right with pop in the 80s – plus "One On One", "Open All Night", "Crime Pays", "Go Solo", "Delayed Reaction", "At Tension", and "Italian Girls".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

RCA, 1976. Very Good+
One of the most creative club acts of the 70s – the mighty Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band! Before starting his Kid Creole & the Coconuts combo, August Darnell worked to great fame with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band – kind of a campy, jazzy ensemble – one that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rare funky live album by one of Australia's greatest soul acts ever! Renee Geyer's in great form, and her band is nice and tight in this slammin' live set that includes a few exclusive cuts, and a few tasty remakes of tracks that were on earlier albums.

Susie Heartbreaker
RCA, 1975. Very Good
A pretty strange little album from LTG Exchange – a blend of Latin, funk, and soul – wrapped up in a comic-stripped cover that pushes the album as sort of a "black rock operetta"! The feel here is different than the group's earlier work – a bit more disco oriented, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hitch It Up
Imperial, Late 60s. Very Good
An album of tight funky instrumentals with a nice southern feel to them. Hard piano, organ, and guitar, and a very Booker T & the MGs sound. We're not sure if this is the same group as Packey Axton's combo – but there's a definite Memphis instrumental feel. Includes the cuts "Soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1974. Very Good-
A seminal set from The Joneses – and a record that really set a whole new style for soul vocal groups in the 70s! The group soar into new heights with some of the growing sophistication of the east coast scene – bits of strings, tighter charts, and some cool pre-disco grooves – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joy
Enterprise, 1973. Very Good
One of the funkiest Isaac Hayes albums for Stax – thanks mostly to the extended title cut! The tune "Joy" is a monster – running for nearly 16 minutes long, and starting with a killer drum break on the intro – then full, proud, bad-stepping Isaac Hayes grooves ... LP, Vinyl record album
