LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Seminal 80s groove from 70s Miami soul star Gwen McCrae – reinventing herself here for the new decade with a totally different sound! The album's best known for the amazing club track "Funky Sensation" – one of those tracks that crossed over big, and had a huge influence in countless scenes – as the tune burned big on all fronts, including the worlds of disco, hip hop, and even roller skating! Other tunes follow in a similar format – with lots of nice snapping rhythms, thanks to arranger/composer/producer Kenton Nix – who really manages to break Gwen out of the standard Miami soul groove! The whole thing's great, and other titles include "Poyson", "All My Love", "No Deposit/No Return", "Movement", and "Have A Good Time".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some ring and edge wear, a cutout notch, an index label on front, and some light stains, a small sticker, and bit of pen on back.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Broadway

Magic Man
Hilltak/Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint-
A classy disco project arranged and produced by Willie Henderson – done in a mode that's got less of the jazz funk touches of some of his other late 70s work, and with an approach that's got a fairly straightforward clubby sound. Lead vocals on the set are by Patti Williams – a singer ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Amazing Grace
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A legendary album – one that has Aretha Franklin returning to her roots in gospel music – but working with all the strength and power that Atlantic Records had to offer!

Montana

I Love Music
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+
The great Vince Montana was one of the strongest forces in the Philly soul scene of the 70s – and he was not only an excellent vibist whose instrumentation can be heard on countless soul sessions, but also one heck of an arranger, with a real talent for a soulful groove – as you'll hear ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+
A collection of Ray's incredible work for Atlantic during the late 50s – a mixture of hard grooving R&B tunes and more jazz-based mellower numbers, all done in that stripped-down raw style he was using at the time, one that was a lot harder than his later work for ABC. Titles include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Esther Phillips

And I Love Him
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+
Pivotal work from Esther Phillips – and maybe for 60s female soul as well – as the set has the once-raw singer really taking a hip, sophisticated twist – using some jazzy backings to really up her game, and find a whole new level of expression! Her version of the Beatles title ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson Pickett

Hey Jude
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good
Wilson Pickett at Fame Studios – an unbeatable mix that yields up one of his greatest albums ever!

Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good

Young Rascals

Groovin'
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
Possibly the biggest album ever by The Rascals – a wonderfully tight batch of tunes that has the group hitting perfectly on all their best fronts!

Rotary Connection

Peace
Cadet, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the coolest Christmas albums ever – a tripped-out classic from Chicago's legendary Rotary Connection! The album's every bit as wonderful as any of the group's non-Holiday sets for Cadet Records – and maybe even has more to offer, given that the euphoria of the season is thrown ...

Millie Jackson

I Got To Try It One Time
Spring, 1974. Near Mint-
One of Millie's great early Spring LPs, with a deep hard soul sound that she never matched on later releases. Despite claim of the big hit on here "I Got To Try It One Time", Millie sounds like she's tried it a lot more than that, and you can hear the proof on tracks like "My Love ...
