Gritty Soul

LP (Item 903253) Jewel/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

The closest to a full album you'll get from any of these overlooked southern soul singers – a Japanese-only release, with four tracks by each artist!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes obi, too.)

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.

Soul Dynamite – Deep Soul Classics Vol 7
SSS International/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint-
A great Japanese-only collection, filled with rare gems from the SSS International and Sansu labels – a few tracks each by Gloria Taylor, Samson & Delila, Johnny McKinnis & Laura Green, Mill Evans, Johnny Dynamite, and The Lost Soul – plus two duets between Hank Ballard and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess/P-Vine (Japan), Early 50s. Near Mint-
One of the only full sets we've ever seen to document the great run of singles cut by Jackie Brenston in the early 50s – work initially done in Memphis, as a real precursor to that city's soul scene – and later cut also in Chicago, with a really hard-wailing approach! The set's titled ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Casablanca, 1976. Very Good-
An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics! The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Side Effect

Rainbow Visions
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+
More great jazzy stepping grooves from this Fantasy band. Wayne Henderson's still at the helm on production, and there's some nice cuts, including "I'm A Winner", and the mellow "She's A Lady", plus "Peace Of Mind", "Falling In Love Again" and the title ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dial/Mercury, 1972. Very Good+
Nice early 70's record by Joe, with a mix of 70's funk tracks and tracks that have more of his classic southern soul sound from the 60's. Joe's raspy voice is as beautiful as always, and he's got some really sweet material on here like "Cat's Got Her Tongue", "All The Heaven A Man ... LP, Vinyl record album

Average White Band

Person To Person
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
Their classic double live set from the mid 70s, and as tight a batch of grooves as you'll find on their studio albums! In fact, this one might even be tighter, as it's got a good set of classic tracks performed live, with a sound that's a little bit more uptight and open than the studio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wah Wah Watson

Elementary
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint-
A funky fusion classic from guitarist Wah Wah Watson – his only album as a leader, despite countless appearances as a sideman on 70s soul, jazz, and pop sessions! The album's got a really wonderful sort of west coast groove – one that takes bits of spacey fusion, bassy funk, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Newman

Fathead Comes On
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+
Early work from David Fathead Newman – so early, the cover has him listed as "Dave" on the front! The album steps nicely off Newman's early work with Ray Charles – and does plenty to establish him as a leader on his own – putting Newman's bold, soulful tenor right ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint-
Important mid 60s work from Ornette – and one of the few recordings of this format to see larger release at the time! The set captures Ornette in a much freer style than heard on his Atlantic recordings from a few years before – paying alto, violin, and trumpet, in a trio with David ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vi Redd

Lady Soul
Atco, 1962/1963. Very Good
One of the few albums ever issued by female alto player Vi Redd – a really unique artist, and a greatly overlooked talent from the time! Vi's got a wonderfully warm approach – and she often sings in addition to playing alto sax – with this vocal style that's really great, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
