Searching For My Love

LP (Item 8741) Checker, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

A wonderful album of southern soul – and the only full-length LP cut by Bobby Moore and his long-lived Rhythm Aces combo! The group's the sort that slaved away endlessly in live shows all over the south – playing on their own, or providing extra backup for countless big stars touring through the area. Bobby's on tenor, and the group has some incredibly rich vocal talents – unnamed, but with a group harmony style that's equally at home with sweet ballads or hard stompin party numbers. The latter style is the band's strongest suit, though – with an approach that's somewhere between the hard soul of Sam & Dave and the party grooves of Doug Clark & The Hot Nuts – and like that group, Moore's style was probably forged out of years of playing at beach dances, frat parties, and bar gigs, the real proving ground for a tight combo like this! A great little LP, with a fresh sound throughout – and tracks include "The Hamburger Song", "Follow Me", "Searching For My Love", "Hey, Mr. DJ", "Searching For My Love", "Jenny, Jenny", "Come Back Baby", and "We've Got That". Recorded at Fame in 1966 with Rick Hall, too!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing. Cover has a cutout grommet.)

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.

Bar-Kays

Black Rock
Volt, 1971. Near Mint-
An album that's every bit as great as the title might imply – heavy guitar-based funk from the second version of The Bar-Kays – one that uses the new instrumental focus to push a groove that's much more black rock than before! There's still a bit of trumpet from the past, but the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Henderson

Solid
Buddah, 1976. Very Good
The very first album from Michael Henderson – but a set that already finds him very much at the top of his game – thanks to previous work with Miles Davis and Norman Connors! Both artists gave Henderson a chance to do different things with his music, and by the time of this record, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Irene Reid

Room For One More
Verve, 1965. Near Mint-
Although Irene Reid later went on to make some recordings that had her in a more rootsy setting, this nice set from the mid 60's features her deep soul voice amidst classy jazz-based arrangements by Oliver Nelson. The record's got the feel of one of Nancy Wilson's classics for Capitol, with a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
Edsel (UK), Mid 60s/1984. Near Mint-
An excellent compilation that brings together some of Ben's harder to find "uptown soul" singles from his middle period Atlantic recordings. This one's way better than any of the "best of" comps of Ben's work, and it really shows how great a soul singer he was apart from his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Goodman & Brown

Ray, Goodman, & Brown
Polydor, 1979. Near Mint-
Sweet silky harmony soul from the trio of Harry Ray, Billy Brown, and Al Goodman – the group's first album under a new name – after some previous indie work as The Moments! The album's got the group really stepping up with a rich new sound – drawing on all the best elements of ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Like the first volume, this isn't so much a collection of "oldies" so much as it is a tasty set of hard to find numbers from the United Artists label – including some killer soul and jazz numbers that are pretty darn hard to track down on LP. The record features two great ones from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Various

Dial A Hit
Bell, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A totally excellent compilation of tracks released as 45s on Bell. While the selection of tracks is great, the best part of the whole thing is the cool cover, with a mock up telephone dial on the front cover that you spin to look at the artists and tracks! 11 great numbers in all, including " ...

Gladys Knight & The Pips

I Feel A Song
Buddah, 1974. Near Mint-
Rock-solid Buddah work from Gladys Knight & The Pips – still pretty righteous on the vocal tip, but often a bit fuller and more polished than before! Knight shows a great talent for a mature ballad here – no big hits, but that's part of the charm of the set – as there's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jerome Richardson

Groove Merchant
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A great little album of jazzy tracks from multi-talented reedman Jerome Richardson! The album's got a sort of jazzy meets Now Sound sound – sort of like the Benny Golson or Cal Tjader albums on Verve from the time, and it's a great one if you dig that sort of thing. The tracks are mostly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alla Rakha

Tabla!
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good-
Get blunted! Hard to find original US LP of three smoking extended talas. Alla Rakha's on tabla and vocals, and is joined by more percussion and sitar. LP, Vinyl record album
