Ambergris

LP (Item 83553) Paramount, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

A genre-busting batch of tunes from Ambergris – a group with styles that range from Memphis soul, to New York Latin, to some of the heavier sides of the underground rock scene of the time! The ensemble features Latin Soul maestro Larry Harlow on piano, organ, and percussion – working with a rock-based group that still has lots of jazzy touches on their instrumentation. Steve Cropper produced the set – but in New York, not Memphis – and the whole thing explodes with a rich range of musical influences, all bubbling together in one pot! Includes the funky rock tracks "Soul Food" and "Forget It I Got It", plus "Endless Night", "Sunday Lady", "Home Groan", "Chocolate Pudding", and "Gotta Find Her".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a small sticker, sticker spot, unglued top seam, and appears to have been signed by Larry Harlow and Billy Shay inside the gatefold.)

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.

Bubblegum glam badassery from Suzi Quatro – her namesake and possibly best album – leading off with the killer "48 Crash" and barely letting up from there! Punchy, arse kicking and catchy rock & roll from a real 70s pioneer! It's a ridiculous shame that on our shores, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Abandoned Luncheonette
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good
A wonderful step forward for the team of Hall & Oates – and a set that has them moving more into soul than ever before! The album's a tremendous collaboration with the legendary Arif Mardin, who takes the pair's well-crafted vocals into territory that's much more slinkily soulful than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
The crowning achievement of Spirit – and a record that you probably could have found in any college dorm room in the early 70s!

Harvey Mandel

Snake
Janus, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
Messed-up funky guitar from Harvey Mandel – with lots of freewheeling fuzzed-out tracks, in the manner of his best classic work! In a way, Harvey's later albums are even better than his first few, as he's getting a lot tighter on the strings – which means that he can pick up the groove ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1968. Very Good
A really unique little 60s Latin session from Verve – recorded with a surprisingly stripped-down feel that you wouldn't expect from the label, given that they mostly went for a groovier pop-Latin approach at the time!
