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.

Rufus Thomas

Do The Funky Chicken
Stax, 1970. Very Good+
One of the best Rufus Thomas albums from the 70s – a key record from his comeback years, and one that has him trading in his older R&B mode for a harder, funkier Memphis groove! Rufus was 52 at the time, but thanks to a never-dying fire, and some great youthful arrangements, the set ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rance Allen Group

Brothers
Truth/Stax, 1973. Very Good
A lesser-known gem from Rance Allen and group – recorded during their incredible early run at Stax! The sound here seems even more powerful than on the group's first album – a wicked blend of gospel and soul, served up with relatively spare instrumentation that features keyboards and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Super Taylor
Stax, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Sweet, smooth, and bluesy – perhaps not as hard as some of Johnnie's earlier Stax work, but with an increasing sophistication that really shows his development as a soul singer. The record's a good bridge into Johnnie's modern soul work at Columbia – and it's got arrangements by Wade ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stax (Mexico), 1972. Very Good+

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

Various

Stax Story
Stax/Pye (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great UK collection of work from the second chapter of Stax Records – and one that features on some of the unusual material the label was cutting in the early 70s, with a few nice funky nuggets in the mix! Features tracks by Inez Fozz, Soul Children, Sons Of Slum, Big Ben, Shack, Veda ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGs

Melting Pot
Stax, 1971. Very Good-
One of the greatest albums ever from Booker T & The MGs – and very different than their early work! The record has Book & Co taking off with a stretched-out jazzy sound – carving expanded grooves that are filled with sweet organ solos, choppy guitar riffs, and some incredibly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

One Step Beyond
Stax, 1970. Very Good-
One of the coolest covers of Johnnie Taylor's early years on Stax Records – and some pretty great music to match! The album's got a wicked funky blues groove – with production by Don Davis that hangs nicely on both the hard edges and mellower moments – really showing Taylor's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1971. Sealed Gatefold
One of the most fantastic soundtracks of the 70s – and maybe even of all time – thanks to a non-stop blast of insane styles and grooves – all quite different than other blacksploitation records of the time! For this, his masterpiece film, Melvin Van Peebles composed a non-stop ... LP, Vinyl record album

Young-Holt Unlimited

Oh Girl
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
Wicked electric funk from Young Holt Unlimited – and a real departure from the sound of their 60s albums, and a step into a groove that's very 70s-styled overall! The album's heavy on Fender Rhodes – played not just by group member Ken Chaney, but also by a young Bobby Lyle – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1966. Very Good+
A landmark set of grooves by this excellent Detroit group – a trio who recorded for the local indie Karen, but got a much bigger boost towards fame when their record was picked up by Atlantic! The set's one of the killer 60s Motor Town sets produced by Ollie McLaughlin – and like the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shawn Phillips

Spaced
A&M, 1977. Very Good
Wonderful! Shawn Phillips started his career as a shaggy folk rocker with a bit of a jazzy twinge – but this album collects odd bits and pieces that were left off of earlier albums, and works perfectly as a record that shows a whole new side of his genius! The album shows Phillips as a ... LP, Vinyl record album
