Let It Be Me

LP (Item 844530) Capitol, 1987 — Condition: Sealed

Audrey Wheeler's debut album – a really top-shelf effort crafted after years of lending her vocals to other folks' records, and a classic early stint in the group Unlimited Touch! Preston Glass handled production, and the set's about as sharp as can be for a mainstream soul album of the time – still a bit heavy on the beats that had come into vogue a few years before, but put together with a richness that really fits Wheeler's deep vocals – and which shows some of the changes that soul music was making towards the end of the 80s. There's plenty of hooks in the mix, but things are also nicely free from commercial cliches too – and titles include "Love On The Inside", "Irresistible", "Forget About Her", "I Miss You Love ", "Don't Lose Your Touch", and "Let It Be Me".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Shrinkwrap is lightly shopworn, with hype sticker and Introductory Low Price sticker.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
The first of John Anderson's albums recorded under his alter ego of Kasandra – and quite possibly the best!

Underexposed
Capitol, 1989. Very Good+
The title's a great one for this late 80s set – as Paul Laurence was one of the most underexposed soul singers of his generation, even though his work was always pretty darn great!

Tamla, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the best Stevie Wonder albums ever! Stevie's moving into god-like territory here – handling a multitude of styles, all well, and crafting some of the most sophisticated soul of his generation.
