LP (Item 9408) Reprise, 1972 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP


One of Quincy Jones' best soundtracks of the 70s – filled with some great slick electric funky crime tracks, perfectly played by LA jazzers that include Clare Fischer, Paul Humphrey, Arthur Adams, David T Walker, Milt Holland, and Jerome Richardson. A few cuts feature vocals by Little Richard – but the best tracks are the instrumental ones – like the classic sample cut "Snow Creatures", which has an amazing intro and a very dark mood. Other tracks include "Passin The Buck", "Rubber Ducky", "Money Is", "Do It Do It", and "Money Runner". (Cover has a light stain with some flaking at the bottom.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Fathoms Deep
Reprise, 1973. Very Good
A wonderful album from Linda Lewis – certainly one of her best from the early days, and a completely captivating mixture of soul, jazz, and rock that sparkles like Minnie Riperton's best work from the time! The album's got a sweet LA sound – with Linda's great vocals up front in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lark
Reprise, 1973. Very Good
One of the best-ever albums by this lovely soulful singer! Linda Lewis had an amazing style that was somewhere in between Minnie Riperton, Joni Mitchell, and Ellen McIlwaine – meaning that she mixes soul, folk, and a bit of jazz into her own unique vibe. This album's a gem, and is filled ... LP, Vinyl record album

Twinight, Early 70s. Very Good+
One of the best-ever soul albums to come out of Chicago – and it may well be one of the best soul albums ever! The set's the deepest that Syl Johnson ever recorded – and it takes all the hard, raw soul he forged on previous funky 45s – and spins it out in longer album format ... LP, Vinyl record album

Musicor, 1971. Very Good+
Quite possibly the best album ever from this fantastic funky combo! The band grooves hard and funky – with incredible drum work from Paul Stubblefield, tasty guitar from Walter Winston, and some famous funky flute and sax work from Gus Hawkins. Tracks on the album are rough and raw – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spirit Of The Boogie
De-Lite, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
Way more than just a "boogie" album – as you might think from the title – and much more a hard-hitting batch of funky tunes, mixed with some even cooler laidback numbers! The album follows heavily off the style of Wild & Peaceful – mixing together the group's older ... LP, Vinyl record album

Euphrates Rivers
RCA, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Although the Main Ingredient were best known for their early 70's singles, this album from '74 is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula. Bert DeCoteaux was still arranging, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hotbed
Stax, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
We used to pass this one up, because it was later, and hence not as good as the other Stax stuff. But then we discovered the nice extended version of "Feel Like Makin' Love", which is a nice solid groover. Also includes the tracks "Use Me", "I'm Gonna Have to Tell ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild & Peaceful
De-Lite, 1973. Very Good+
After this one, there was no turning back for Kool & The Gang! The record has them bringing their underground funk sound to the masses – with a choppy riffy groove that stands out almost as a public challenge to all the other pretenders that had been cropping up on major labels during ...

Red Hot
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+
Fusiony R&B tracks for Mercury, with production and arrangements by bassist John Lee, who also plays on the record. The Lp's filled with well-known jazzy guests, like Roy Ayers, Randy Brecker, and Charles Earland, and the cuts include "Daring Me Closer", "Body Heat", "F ... LP, Vinyl record album

Salsoul, 1977. Very Good+
A lost groover on Salsoul, with 3 long cuts that all have a solid dancefloor sound! Tracks include the Latin-tinged "El Caravanero", which has a nice organ sound in it; "Orfeu Negro", a disco version of "Black Orpheus"; and the title cut, which runs for 15 minutes on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Glow Of Love
Warner, 1980. Very Good+
The classic debut from Change – and the start of an amazing run of groovers in the early 80s! The set's got a tight, jazzy feel throughout – a stripped-down approach to disco modes, with the same focus on the basslines that you'd find in work by Chic – but a style that's almost ...
