Starship – The De-Lite Superstars

LP (Item 9034) De-Lite, Mid 70s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Nice compilation featuring some of the strongest singles recorded for the De-Lite label, like "Jungle Jazz", "Summer Madness", and "More Funky Stuff" by Kool and the Gang, "Zone" by the Rhythm Makers, and "Get Down" and "You've Got to Keep On Bumpin" by the Kay-Gees. Sure, there's some weak stuff, but over two LPs worth of material, you've got more than your share of great funky 45s, but on album-length tracks.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing. Vinyl is in great shape, but cover has some edge wear, heavy wear at the spine, some red marker in front, and small sticker in back. Labels on sides A & C have some red marker.)

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.

Kool & The Gang

Best Of Kool & The Gang
De-Lite, Early 70s. Very Good+
This one's called a "best of", but it's really one of the group's first albums, and it pulls together a host of great early tracks, some of which were only ever on singles! The record's got a shiny gold cover, and it's rare as hen's teeth! Titles include "The Penguin", "Le ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kool & The Gang

Ladies' Night
De-Lite, 1979. Very Good
A shameless dancefloor cash-in move – but a record that's still pretty darn great as well! You all know the big title cut "Ladies Night", so we won't bother to describe it – but we can say that the group wisely hooked up with Deodato, who produced, mixed, and even played ... LP, Vinyl record album
De-Lite, 1979. Near Mint-
Were there ever two words that improved the qualities of each other than "roller" and "disco"? We think not – and this album's more than proof of that! Most of this set is more straight disco than the "roller" version implied by the title – but a few of ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1974. Sealed
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Al Green Is Love
Hi Records, 1975. Sealed
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this! Al Green's at the height of his powers here – working in that wonderfully smooth, wonderfully warm style that made his early 70s material so wonderful! This album's maybe slightly less iconic than some of Green's other titles for Hi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet Inspirations

Sweet Sweet Soul
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint-
The Sweet Sweet Sweet Inspirations get the Gamble Huff treatment – and as it worked with Archie Bell, so it works with these guys – really well! The Philly sound gives the girls the right push that they need to keep from being just another snoozy Atlantic stable band, and it pushes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Marvin Marvin Marvin – just when we thought you couldn't impress us any more, you took it to the next level! Trouble Man is a heck of a wonderful surprise from an artist that most folks really only knew as a singer – a fantastically funky blacksploitation soundtrack, conceived and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Imperial, 1965. Very Good
Imperial LP built around Mel Carter's big 60's pop soul hit "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me", with some arrangements by Nick De Caro, and a good LA 60's studio soul sound. Gene Page and HB Barnum did the arrangements on the other cuts, so you can guess how the groove's going to sound. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Mann & The Brothers

Shaft
Pickwick, Early 70s. Very Good
Groovy version of the Shaft soundtrack, played by the obscure studio group Soul Mann & The Brothers (who are actually led by Sy Mann). The set includes the best cuts from the score, like "Walk From Regio's", "Cafe Regio's", "Theme From Shaft", and "Bumpy's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Dorsey

Night People
ABC, 1978. Sealed
A nicely evolved groove from Lee Dorsey – still working with tremendous production from Allen Toussaint, the man who brought him into stardom in the 60s – but with a warmer sound that's more 70s modern overall! The shift here is almost like that of Lamont Dozier's in the 70s – as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Irene Reid

Room For One More
Verve, 1965. Very Good
Although Irene Reid later went on to make some recordings that had her in a more rootsy setting, this nice set from the mid 60's features her deep soul voice amidst classy jazz-based arrangements by Oliver Nelson. The record's got the feel of one of Nancy Wilson's classics for Capitol, with a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rene & Angela

Wall To Wall
Capitol, 1981. Very Good
Wall To Wall grooves from the team of Angela Winbush and Bobby Watson – easily one of the duo's best records ever, and a masterpiece of jazzy 80s groove! The sound here is clean, lean, and very bouncy on the bottom – that best blend of keyboard riffs and jazzier basslines that Capitol ... LP, Vinyl record album
