LJT Sings Gospel Blues

LP (Item 839913) Jewel/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Not the gospel you'd guess from the title – but a nice set of soulful cuts from Little Johnnie Taylor – with titles that include "A Thousand Miles Away", "Everybody Knows About My Good Thing (parts 1 & 2)", "Open House At My House (parts 1 & 2)", "I Ask Myself A Question", "As Long As I Don't See You", and "Part Time Love". Japanese-only album, too!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes obi!)

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.

Gamble/Philadelphia International, 1968. Very Good+
An excellent early album from Billy Paul – done in a mode that's quite different than his bigger hits of the 70s! The record's almost more of a jazz outing, but with a definite soulful twist – done in this righteous mode that's not unlike some of the best Nina Simone material from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Staple Singers/Curtis Mayfield

Let's Do It Again
Curtom, 1975. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums ever from The Staple Singers – and that's really saying a lot, as they cut a huge amount of really great records! The album's an unusual collaboration between the group and Curtis Mayfield – one that forges the great vocal styles they were developing at Stax ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1972. Near Mint-
An overlooked moment of 70s genius from The Supremes – and from the great Jimmy Webb as well – given that the pop studio genius wrote, arranged, and produced the entire album! Jimmy had plenty of famous work under his belt by this point in time – including his famous ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1977. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
Sweet jazzy work from War – a record that has them stretching things out a bit from before, and finding new ways to groove for the second half of the 70s! All the core elements are still firmly in place – that sublime blend of jazz, soul, funk, and Latin elements – but there's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone Davis

Tyrone Davis
High Rise, 1982. Sealed
Later work by Tyrone, but an excellent album of smooth modern soul tunes that builds off his strong work for Columbia! The album features a sublime stepper called "Are You Serious" – a great track that easily ranks with Tyrone's best work from later years – and the rest of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Big Life (UK), 1989. Near Mint-
The first full length from Cold Cut, with their big hits "people Hold On" and "Doctorin' The House", plus their other cut and paste and house and hip hop crossover numbers, like "Fat (Party & Bullsh*t)", "theme From 'Reportage'", "Stop This Crazy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Commonwealth United, Early 70s. Very Good+
Quite obscure later work from Maxine – done in a style that's partly like her classic uptown soul work for Wand, but which also has some more down-home and rootsy moments – in an approach that was clearly intended to make her come across as more of a hard soul singer! Arrangements are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson

Touch The Sky
Tamla, 1982. Sealed
Smooth Smokey at the height of his powers – gliding along in the quiet storm groove that he helped to invent, and still sounding surprisingly down to earth – thanks to an intimate and relaxed feel to the set! Despite the date of the album, the instrumentation is nicely restrained, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Lush Life
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Genius work from Nancy Wilson – the kind of Capitol Records gem that was partly jazz, partly soul, and very much in that special territory that made Wilson one of the most mature, sophisticated singers of the 60s! The record's got Nancy working through some material with bluer currents, ... LP, Vinyl record album
