Golden Time Of Day

LP (Item 9018) Capitol, 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Excellent work from Frankie Beverly and Maze! The record is one of the group's best, and has a wonderful mellow groove that's totally on the money on nearly every cut – a mature, sophisticated approach to soul that really made Maze a standout act at the end of the 70s! There's a slight jazzy vibe running through most of the record, supported with warmly flowing grooves, impeccable songwriting, and great vocals from Frankie all the way through. Titles include the excellent track "Golden Time Of Day", one of those slinky modern soul midtempo numbers that were one of the best things about the late 70s soul years – plus the tunes "I Need You", "I Wish You Well", and "Travelin Man".  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Natalie
Capitol, 1976. Very Good
A record that really has Natalie Cole finding her groove – not needing any help from her famous familial legacy, thank you – and instead stepping out with a tight, proud mode that really helped refine the sound of female soul in the 70s!

One of THE 80s groove classics – an excellent album that never gets old!

Stang, 1977. Very Good
A great little album by guitarist Eddie Fisher – the same Eddie Fisher who cut two different albums for Cadet at the end of the 60s, but stepping out here in a slightly different mode!

A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time!
