Flames Of Love

LP (Item 919202) Metronome (Germany), 1988 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Vinyl has just a light sleeve mark.)

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.

What Color Is Love
Cadet, 1973. Near Mint-
Possibly the greatest album ever by the legendary Chicago soul singer Terry Callier!

Meters

Trick Bag
Reprise, 1976. Near Mint-
A sweet Cali set from The Meters – one that loses a bit of their rougher roots, yet still holds onto plenty of funk at the same time! By the mid 70s, the New Orleans soul sound had broken out of the underground, was residing happily in mainstream LA. Allen Toussaint already produced a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Temprees 3
We Produce, 1974. Near Mint-
Brilliant work by one of the greatest harmony groups of the south – the mighty mighty Temprees, standing proud on this, their 3rd LP!

Garnet Mimms & Maurice Monk
Grand Prix, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
An unusal package – but one that features some nice work from the great Garnet Mimms! This is one of those budget LPs that features some tracks by a famous artist, whose name is listed in big type, and other tracks by a lesser-known artist, listed in smaller type. Although this type of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Charly (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint-

A&M, 1989. Near Mint-
A crowning moment in New Jack Swing – or New Jill Swing, as it were – a perfect step forward for Janet Jackson, as she continues to work with the duo of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, with a vibe that was setting the scene for the rest of mainstream soul at the time! The album's got a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara McNair

More Today Than Yesterday
Audio Fidelity, Late 60s. Sealed
Obscure pop/soul release recorded for Audio Fidelity, with arrangements by Coleridge Perkinson. Babs runs through a set of mostly pop stuff, like "Windows of the World" and "Didn't We", but there's also some originals like "I Can Tell" and "Something Happy". LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1964. Sealed
A major winner from The Impressions! Virtually all of their material for ABC was excellent – and this LP is no exception, as it's got loads of original Curtis Mayfield compositions, and plenty of great arrangements by Chicago soul legend Johnny Pate. The group is extremely soulful at this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phillip & Lloyd

Blues Busters
Scepter, 1975. Near Mint-
First US release by this Jamaican rocksteady duo, recorded in Jamaica with Byron Lee at the helm.

Les McCann

Music Lets Me Be
ABC, 1977. Sealed
Soulful keyboards from Les McCann – and a bit of vocals too – all set to some mighty sweet soul based backings! The overall sound is fairly well produced, with Les' piano floating on some lofty fusion arrangements – but the keyboard work is great, and the record remains very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bo Diddley

His Greatest Sides
Chess, Late 50s. Sealed
Raw, ragged, rough, and ready – killer early work by Bo Diddley, clearly in a class by itself! The Bo Diddley groove isn't blues, isn't soul, and isn't R&B – it's instead a mad blend of rhythm, scratchy guitar, and spontaneously playful vocals that few other singers could ever hope ...
