You're The Song I've Always Wanted To Sing

LP (Item 8438) Glades, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

A Miami soul masterpiece from start to finish – and a lesser-known record from drum machine hit maestro Timmy Thomas! The album's got the feel of Timmy's classic Why Can't We Live Together album – but the overall sound is a bit fuller and richer, with a soulfulness that grabs us right away – and holds on through the entire set! Most of the tracks have that warm percolating early drum machine undercurrent that Timmy virtually pioneered at the time – followed by some great guitar work from Willie "Little Beaver" Hale, and some vocals from Timmy that sometimes have a nice deep soul feel. The album's worth it alone for the title track "You're The Song I've Always Wanted To Sing" – but the whole thing's great, and tracks include "Deep In You", "Let Me Be Your Eyes", "I've Got To See You Tonight", "One Brief Moment", "Ebony Affair", and "Deep In You".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Gwen Guthrie

Portrait
Island, 1983. Near Mint-
Early work from Gwen Guthrie – produced by Sly & Robbie, but with a sweet modern soul sound that's got a lot less of their influence than you'd guess! The sound is much more New York than Jamaica – and that's probably due to some great instrumental backing on keyboards by the likes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Foxy

Get Off
Dash, 1978. Near Mint-
A pretty catchy bit of Miami club from the late 70s! The group's got a strong acoustic sound underpinning their grooves – with some excellent percussion underneath the best tracks, and some vocals that almost hit a scatting harmony range that reminds us of Side Effect or the LA Boppers. ...

A great slice of New Orleans soul from the 70s – a record that replicates the "Indian" culture in the Mardi Gras scene – and which is most notable for featuring work by The Meters as well! The groove here is kind of Meters-styled funk, mixed with some fuller New Orleans mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul City, 1968. Near Mint-
A wonderful early album from soul singer Al Wilson – a well-crafted mix of modes that really stands out in late 60s pop – and which showed that Al was quite different than most of his contemporaries!
