Amos Lee

LP (Item 908569) Blue Note, 2005 — Condition: Near Mint-

A pretty sweet batch of soulful, coffee house folk pop from Blue Note upstart Amos Lee – who's clearly being positioned by the label as a potential male Norah Jones – but don't hold it too much against him! Lee's got a husky, strong voice, and he emotes in a natural style with roots in late 60s soul and AM soft rock. The arrangements are very natural and easy, laid out mostly in stripped-down settings of guitar, bass, drums and wurlitzer. If he hones his songwriting chops a little bit he could be something! Tracks include "Keep It Loose, Keep It Tight", "Seen It All Before", "Arms Of A Woman", "Give It Up", "Dreamin'", "Soul Suckers", "Colors", "Bottom Of The Barrell", "Love In The Lies", All My Friends" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(EU pressing on 180 gram vinyl.)

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.

Free Nationals

Free Nationals
Obe, 2020. Near Mint- 2LP
These guys are known by some as the backing band of Anderson.Paak, but they're a hell of a group on their own – rock-solid right at the core, and able to effortlessly craft a sweet blend of funk and soul – yet also leave room for plenty of guests along the way! The musicianship here is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tank & The Bangas

Green Balloon
Verve, 2018. Sealed 2LP
Tank and the Bangas roll in with a mighty heavy groove – their own special spin on contemporary soul, which seems equally informed by elements of hip hop and underground funk! The group hail from New Orleans, but have a sound that's way more 21st Century than most of that city's musical ... LP, Vinyl record album

War & Eric Burdon

Black Man's Burdon
Far Out/MGM, 1971. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A surprisingly great pairing of talents – the post-Animals Eric Burdon on vocals, and early grooves from Cali funk legends War – coming together here in a blend that still holds up beautifully after all these years! Burdon was already getting pretty soulful on the last few Animals ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1968. Very Good-
Phil Ochs really opens up his sound on this one – working with larger arrangements that make the album sound quite different than the stark, angry folk of his Elektra albums – in a way that creates an even more complicated approach to Ochs' themes cynicism and bitterness. Arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Annette Peacock

I'm The One
RCA, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the better albums by this offbeat jazz singer – and one that doesn't get as campy as some of her later records, although it's still got some pretty camp moments! There's some pretty darn cool electronics used to both process Annette's voice, and which were created by the voice. At ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan

Gaucho
MCA, 1980. Very Good-
The last album in the classic run of Steely Dan – the final taste we'd have of the group until their surprising revival in the 90s! Gaucho picks up beautifully where Aja left off – warmly produced with a deep undercurrent of jazz, but perhaps a bit more down to earth feel at times too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zombies

Zombies
Parrot, 1965. Very Good-
The first US album by The Zombies – a brilliant little record that shows the group as way more than just a Brit Invasion combo! The songs are short, rocking, and nearly all very catchy – but they've got an airy quality that elevates them past simple pop, into the god-like territory ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roxy Music

Country Life
EG, 1974. Very Good-
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly the best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Titles include "Cinnamon Girl", "Round & Round", "Down By The River", "Running Dry", and "Cowgirl In The Sand". LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones

Sticky Fingers
Rolling Stones, 1971. Very Good
Landmark work from The Rolling Stones – and a set that may well stand alongside Exile On Main Street for capturing the group at their height! The record's got the Stones very much in their own space – years from just putting a UK spin on American blues – and instead, finding a ... LP, Vinyl record album
