South Side Madness

LP (Item 921956) Dance Mania, 1995 — Condition: Good+
2LP

(NOTE: This copy has white labels, with some titles in pen, and designs in marker. Comes in a plain white sleeve.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

Cameo

Cameosis
Chocolate City, 1980. Very Good
Full-on frenetic funk from Cameo – one of the group's tightest albums, yet still without any of the too-slick sounds of later years! The sound here is amazing – and we always find ourselves wondering how a group of guys can hit such perfect grooves with just a bunch of basses, guitars, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Upchurch

Feeling Blue
Milestone, 1967. Sealed
Probably the best jazz album that Phil Upchurch ever cut! Phil plays in two settings here – one with a funky large group, arranged and conducted by Ed Bland (who did a lot of the work for Perception records in the early 70s) – the other with a quintet that includes Wynton Kelly, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Undisputed Truth

Law Of The Land
Gordy, 1973. Very Good+
An unstoppable groove from The Undisputed Truth – a group who worked with Norman Whitfield in the same psychedelic soul territory as The Temptations – and who arguably got the sound across even better than them! This set's not as much of a bit hit as the group's other records from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Solomon Burke

Soul Alive!
Rounder, 1981. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album

Naked Eyes

Fuel For Fire
EMI, 1984. Near Mint-
Sweet electro pop from Naked Eyes – a record issued late in their early 80s run, but one that actually brings together lots of bits from earlier years! There's some alternate versions and remixes on the set – and the whole thing is actually more beat and bassline-heavy than most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ben E King

Beginning Of It All
Mandala, 1972. Very Good
A strange little record by Ben – recorded after leaving Atlantic, originally issued by the small Mandala label in the early 70s, a short-live subsidiary of King Records in its last years. The sound here is hard to describe – rougher than Ben's uptown soul from the 60s, but still with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mass Production

Three Miles High
Cotillion, 1978. Very Good
Uptempo ensemble funk from Mass Production, very much in a post-EWF vein. The group does a good job of layering guitars, keys, horns and percussion together in a tight, bass heavy mode, we'd say our only wish is that they were a touch stronger in the vocal performances, which though nice enough, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Weather Report

Mysterious Traveller
Columbia, 1974. Very Good
A new sense of focus in the Weather Report sound – that building, soaring groove that would become the group's trademark in the mid 70s – offered up here in one of it's first and finest examples! The approach is one to describe accurately on paper – but which is instantly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Sketches Of Spain
Columbia, 1960. Very Good-
A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cat Stevens

Izitso
A&M, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
Cat Stevens' most soulful moment! Long before he changed his name – and started setting his sights on Salman Rushdie – Cat Stevens decided to atone for the wrongdoings of previous A&M albums with this album! The record still contains a number of Cat's soporific folksy numbers ... LP, Vinyl record album
MGM, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
The mostly orchestral music used for the Kubrick film, with alternating spooky and grand passages Strauss, Ligetti and others. Inlcudes "Also Sprach Zarathustra", "Requiem For Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Mixed Choirs & Orchestra", "Luz Aeterna", "The Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grover Washington Jr

Inner City Blues
Kudu, 1972. Very Good+
Sweet funky jazz from Grover Washington – an early standout session from his classic years on Kudu Records, put together with hip arrangements from the mighty Bob James! The record's got the same spacious sense of grooving as James' first few for CTI – a style that's funky fusion, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
