Memphis Slim USA (Pearl)

LP (Item 879050) United/Pearl, Mid 50s — Condition: Near Mint-
Not the Candid album with a similar title, but a great set of 50s material that Memphis Slim cut for the United Records label in Chicago – many previously unissued – in a small group with Matt Murphy on guitar! Titles include "Slim Was Just Kiddin", "She's Allright", "Backbone Boogie", "Little Peace Of Mind", "Blue & Lonesome", and "Banana Oil".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s pressing – first issue of this material! Cover has a small trace of a price sticker.)

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.

Ladies Man
Alive, 2010. Sealed
A strong, rightly raw set from T-Model Ford – doing his thing on record as well as he has for years, but that's especially remarkable given that he was creeping up on 90-years-old when he made it! It's all acoustic, single take recorded numbers with spare backing on harmonica, guitar and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Bland

Try Me I'm Real
MCA, 1981. Near Mint-
A record with a title that certainly fits the bill – as the amazing voice of Bobby Bland is as real here as it ever was, and blended with superbly soulful backings that take the singer's sound forward for a whole new generation! Some of Bobby's contemporaries were content to just stick in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Duke, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of the fantastic Duke LPs by Bobby Bland from the early 60's, with a rootsy southern soul sound that prefaces later sounds to come out of Stax and Muscle Shoals. Includes the great cut "You're The One (That I Adore)", plus "You're Worth It All", "Your Friends", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dreamer
ABC, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Sure it's not his Duke recordings, and sure, the sound's a bit 70s-ish – but Bobby's voice is always fantastic, and he still sounds great in this smooth batch of tracks recorded in LA. Backings were arranged and conducted by Michael Omartian – but it's Bobby's vocals that really make ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ted Taylor

Ted Taylor 1976
TK/Alarm, 1976. Sealed
An overlooked set from Ted Taylor – one of those singers who kept moving around to different labels, never quite finding his home – but always doing some great work in the process! Ted's quite different here than on his 60s work for Okeh – much more in the southern soul territory ... LP, Vinyl record album

There's A Riot Goin' On
Epic, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold
A wonderful album from Sly and crew – moving way past the straight funk approach of earlier records, into a complicated crossover soul style that's filled with warmth and righteousness. Despite the political tone implied by the "riot" in the title and the co-option of the American ... LP, Vinyl record album
