Superstar Series

LP (Item 912860) Motown, 1970s — Condition: Sealed

(Still sealed, with a cutout notch.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Jermaine Jackson

Jermaine (1980)
Motown, 1980. Very Good+
Jermaine's out to show that he's clearly the more laidback, mellower Jackson of the family here – and steps out nicely on this mature album of mostly ballads and love songs, done with some slight jazzy inflections! The move's a good one for Jermaine at the time – setting some space ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jermaine Jackson

Frontiers
Motown, 1978. Very Good
Jermaine didn't really hit his stride making up tempo bass heavy funk until Let's Get Serious, which followed this album a few years later, but this set has a few moments that are stretching towards that high water mark in his career. Overall, it's a rather slick, highly produced affair, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supremes

Supremes A Go Go
Motown, 1966. Very Good
One of the biggest charting LPs by The Supremes – and one of the best, too! The girls are opening it up a bit here – getting in on some of The Miracles Go Go action of the period, and laying down tunes that have a bit more of a northern groove to them – relying a bit more on a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1985. Very Good+
A stone classic from that great early 80s run by DeBarge – that time when they were really reinventing the group soul sound for a new generation, finding a way to bring back older sweet soul modes, but with a very different twist! The record's as strong as its predecessors, although slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Tops

Nature Planned It
Motown, 1972. Very Good
Why did Motown ever let the Four Tops get away? This album was their last for the label – and it's an excellent one, filled with soul, sweetness, and some of the best arrangements the group had in their later years! The soul component is super-high – with tight group instrumentation ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Kendricks

For You
Motown, 1974. Sealed Gatefold
Solid 70s work from Eddie Kendricks – still super-strong in the vocal department, but perhaps a bit less spectacular on the arrangements, at least in comparison to some of his other work at the time. The cuts are less in the boogie mode than in a complicated lush soul style – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supremes

Touch
Motown, 1971. Very Good+
Post-Diana Ross work by The Supremes, but a really great little album – and one that possibly even draws more on a harmony style without the famous diva in the lead! The sound here is rich and full – arranged by Jerry Long and David Van DePitte – and produced by Frank Wilson with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Commodores
Motown, 1977. Very Good+
A classic self-titled set from The Commodores – not their debut album, but a record that really broke them out of the box and exposed the group to a huge new audience! The album hits perfectly on both sides of the group's strengths – the tight ensemble funk on which they were raised, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dazz Band

Hot Spot
Motown, 1985. Very Good
The Dazz Band are in a definite hot spot here – the group's final album for Motown, and a record that's filled with the kind of catchy crossover funk they did better than most! The set snaps into a groove right from the very first note – with that electro funk that Motown served up big ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1960s/1970s. Very Good 2LP
All-star roster on Motown through the years , including The Marvelettes, The Supremes, The Temptations, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Eddie Kendricks, Diana Ross, Thelma Houston, Commodores, and Rick James. LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Greatest Hits
Motown, 1978. Near Mint-
A well-timed Greatest Hits set for The Commodores – because it came out in 1978, and captures the group at their best early prime! This is the stuff that made the group great long before they lapsed into cliches and soft adult contemporary pap – and a number of tracks here have a fair ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1967. Near Mint-
Not just big hits, as there's some great overlooked cuts here – a list of 16 titles that includes "It's Been A Long Long Time" by The Elgins, "Your Unchanging Love" by Marvin Gaye, "In & Out Of Love" by Diana Ross & The Supremes, "Fading Away" ... LP, Vinyl record album
