Girls With Soul – 16 Classics From The Vaults Of Stax Records

LP (Item 902303) Stax (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

A UK-only collection, with rare female soul from the later years of Stax Records – tracks by Veda Brown, Inez Foxx, The Emotions, Mavis Staples, Jeanne & The Darlings, Margie Alexander, Judy Clay, Shirley Brown, Sweet Inspirations, Hot Sauce, and Kim Weston!  © 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.

Stax, 1966. Very Good
A great Memphis sound from the second greatest instrumental group on Stax next to Booker T & The MGs – heard here on a massive record that really pushes The Mar-Keys to the next level! On previous records, the combo always had a sound that was a bit brighter than Booker and his group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGs

And Now – Booker T & The MGs
Stax, 1966. Very Good
A great little album from Booker T & The MGs – recorded in the post Green Onions years, at a time when the group was really coming together – with a tightness that perfectly illustrates their sublime Memphis instrumental groove! The album's heavy on guitar and organ, as you'd ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Children

Best Of Two Worlds
Stax, 1970. Very Good+
A beautiful album of Memphis soul, by one of the sweetest vocal groups ever to come out of the south! The record's a bit more complicated than some of their earlier ones, and features some nice tracks with a more extended style, and more sophisticated arrangements that work great with the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1967. Very Good-
A legendary live set from the 60s all-stars of Stax Records – a performance in London in the late 60s, as the label follows Motown's lead on taking its big names overseas! The lineup is legendary, and most of the tunes are familiar by the artists, but get nice fresh versions here – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus Thomas

Did You Heard Me?
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good+
One of the best funky LPs by Rufus Thomas – recorded in the early 70s with backing by The Movement and The Bar Kays, and with a good raw Stax sound on most cuts! Rufus is certainly in the "funky ___" mode here – doing a formulaic approach to funk that has him taking a theme ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Taylored In Silk
Stax, 1973. Near Mint-
Smoother Johnnie Taylor than in earlier years – gearing up for the shift to Columbia a few years later, with backings recorded in both Detroit and Muscle Shoals. Johnnie's vocals are still fantastic – and the album sports the great hit "Cheaper To Keep Her" – but that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1972. Very Good+
Ahhh, good ol' Mel & Tim – possibly our favorite soul duo ever, and a really dynamic pair that carve some great new territory away from the path set by Sam & Dave! The album's a bit of a comeback for the duo, as you'd guess from the title – even though it was only recorded a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A musical – but a pretty darn soulful one, as you might expect from the mighty Melvin Van Peebles! The soundtrack features tunes from Van Peebles early 70s stage production Don't Play Us Cheap – an attempt to bring the modes explored in his film work to the theater – and given ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1967. Very Good+
The Memphis sound, working hard overseas – in a smoking live set that has some Stax Records stars working in Paris! There's a tightness here that arguably goes past the studio work by the singers – possibly because everyone's working in the same space, with the same backing group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGs

Green Onions
Stax, 1962. Very Good
A legendary album of Memphis soul – and a full length set that helped redefine the sound of instrumental music in the 60s! The record's a monumental follow-up to Booker T & The MGs' huge hit single "Green Onions" – an extremely seductive organ-based instrumental that the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Otis Redding

Soul Album
Volt, 1966. Very Good
Classic stuff by Otis – and a very appropriately titled album! The record's from the prime mid 60s years of Redding's recorded output – before Atlantic started pumping out everything he ever recorded, and when the folks at Stax were using all their talent to put together a well-conceive ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara Mason

Give Me Your Love
Buddah, 1972. Very Good
The sensuous soul gem from Barbara Mason – a sweetly soulful groover all the way – and one of her strongest records! Give Me Your Love gets our love for a bunch of reasons, but especially for the title track – which is reworking of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love" ... LP, Vinyl record album
