Exotic Worlds & Masterful Treasures

LP (Item 899759) Stones Throw, 2018 — Condition: Near Mint-

Bass-heavy funk with a definite 80s influence – but served up here with a contemporary crispness that's the best calling card of Stimulator Jones! In a world where so many others find it easy to completely cop the sounds of the post-disco years, these guys take all the best elements and weave them into something that's completely their own – unabashedly bright and bubbly in their choice of melody, and crafting tunes that are way more than just a blend of beats, bass, and keyboards – even though the keyboards here are pretty darn great overall! Titles include "Need Your Body", "Water Slide", "Give My All", "Feel Your Arms Around Me", "Together", "Trippin On You", and "Suite Luv".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Stones Throw, 2018. Very Good+
The hype sticker on this one might say it all – "First album in 34 years, still sounds like '84" – and that's definitely the spirit here, as overlooked soul artist Prophet serves up a host of sweet 80s keyboards and grooves! He's not alone, though – as Mndsgn is on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Unisex (UK), 2004. Very Good+ 2LP
A great collection that really captures the best side of the New York scene in recent years – the rich tapestry of underground soul music that's been bubbling out from beneath the hip hop and house music scenes!

Monday Michiru

Mermaid
Polygram (Japan), 1998. Near Mint-
An EP release – but one that offers up a great standout moment in the career of Monday Michiru – and a record that has the power to knock away most other contemporary soul of the time! Monday's picking up a bit more of a clubby vibe than her earlier years – getting great help ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leave It All Behind
Foreign Exchange, 2008. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
The second album from Foreign Exchange – the formerly bi-continental project of North Carolina MC and soul singer Phonte of Little Brother, and transplanted Dutch producer Nicolay – who take an even deeper turn into spacey soul on Leave It All Behind! Given that Phonte is singing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deva Mahal

Run Deep
Motema, 2018. Sealed
The first full album from Deva Mahal – a relatively young singer, but one who comes across with a power that makes us think that she's been recording for years! Deva's definitely got a contemporary soul approach, but works with a rasp in her vocals that's a bit blues-influenced too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Macy Gray

Id
Epic, 2001. Very Good
Macy Gray's steps to a higher level on The Id – this is no "sophomore slump" to our ears – actually a helluva lot better than her big selling debut! As on her first set, Macy's vocals are wonderful – totally unique, with that warm raspy soulful style that makes her one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia Nights

In All Things
Record Breakin, 2016. Sealed
We waited years for the full length debut of Columbia Nights, and not only was it worth the wait, it's a stunner – a beautiful batch of timeless spacey soul! Essentially the multi-instrumentalist trio of John E Daise, Jason "Brotherspanky" Edwards and Hayling Price, they have really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cal Tjader

Cal Tjader Plugs In
Skye, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold
A beautifully plugged-in, turned-on session from Cal Tjader – one that features the funky vibist alongside some sweet Fender Rhodes! The session was recorded live, but it's got a flowing, modal quality that rivals Tjader's best work in the studio for Verve and Fantasy at the end of the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone Davis

In The Mood
Columbia, 1979. Very Good
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Limelight, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
A fitting title for a great album – Eric Dolphy's last live recording, performed on June 2, 1964, with a trio of youngsters that included two of the greatest names in European avant garde jazz – Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink! The sound is jagged and a bit free – showing the ... LP, Vinyl record album
