LP (Item 9408) Reprise, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Quincy Jones — Dollar ($) (green vinyl pressing) ... LP 21.99

One of Quincy Jones' best soundtracks of the 70s – a massively funky record that's full of the kind of hip electric grooves you always look for on some of his other albums, but don't always find in such strong supply! The lineup here is great – wicked guitar lines from Arthur Adams and David T Walker, keyboards from Clare Fischer, and heavy drums from the great Paul Humphrey – and the whole thing follows nicely in a "Hicky Burr" sort of mode – with some especially nice Fender Rhodes moments in the mix! There's a few more complicated cuts that really round out the sound wonderfully – and the whole thing has had a heck of a lot more staying power than the film! Heck, even the appearance of Little Richard on vocals at a few points sounds surprisingly great – and titles include the classic sample cut "Snow Creatures", which has an amazing intro and a very dark mood – next to other cuts that include "Passin The Buck", "Rubber Ducky", "Money Is", "Do It Do It", and "Money Runner".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Quincy Jones

Dude
A&M, 1981. Very Good+
A super-huge album from Quincy Jones – a record that's almost like Quincy's trying to show the whole younger generation that an older master like himself can still deliver the goods! The set was delivered right after Quincy helped out Michael Jackson on Off The Wall – and while it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roger (Roger Troutman)

Unlimited!
Reprise, 1987. Near Mint-
Plenty of beats here from Roger Troutman – going for a sound that's maybe even more electro than some of his earlier solo work, at a level that really seems to be pushing the Zapp sound further for the 80s! The style is funky, but touched with lots of elements that have wended their way from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Curtom, 1975. Near Mint-
A great album by Curtis Mayfield – filled with some excellent lesser-known gems! There's No Place Like America was Curtis' scathing testament to the State Of The Union – and it's got a hip political tone that's right up there with the best of his early 70s songwriting – perhaps ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Birth

New Birth
RCA, 1970. Very Good
Way more than just another soul group – as The New Birth are almost big enough to be their own sort of soul music village – complete with different neighborhoods along the way! Vocals are handled by the combined groups of The Mint Juleps and Now Sound – gals and guys that soar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam & Dave

Double Dynamite
Stax, 1966. Very Good
Sublime early Stax work from Sam & Dave – the kind of record that forever changed the way the male voice was used in group soul music! The rhythms on the tunes are totally raw – bass, drums, and guitar that are kind of fused into a dirty funky bottom that proves a perfect foil for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Emotions

Rejoice
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint-
A huge hit for both The Emotions and Maurice White – whose Kalimba Productions handled this album in the same hit mode they'd been using for Earth Wind & Fire! There's a polished, soaring bounce her that definitely shows the Earth Wind & Fire touch – and which takes the girls ... LP, Vinyl record album
Enterprise, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A stunning live example of Ike's amazing baroque soul for Stax! Despite the schmaltz that you might expect from a live set recorded at Lake Tahoe, the album's a beautiful batch of long tracks with a very similar feel to Ike's other Stax work at the time – and it really gives you an excellent ... LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & Fire

All 'N All
Columbia, 1977. Very Good Gatefold
Genius, pure genius! It was hard for Earth, Wind & Fire to go wrong at this point – and the album's a stellar blend of jazz, funk, and soul, all done in that perfect style they'd hit by the mid 70s. And even though this one was a monster album, of the type that you see in everyone's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Paisley Park/Warner, 1987. Very Good+ 2LP
A fantastic record from Prince – a double-length set that came out at a time when the purple one was brimming over with energy and new ideas – and a step slightly in the direction of more socially conscious material! Everything that was great about Prince before the record is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Etta Jones

Ms Jones To You
Muse, 1976. Very Good
Nice 70s work from Etta Jones – done at a time when she was really opening up her sound, thanks in part to prdouction help from Houston Person! Houston's on the set on tenor, and other players include Walter Davis on piano, Buster Williams on bass, Jimmy Ponder on guitar, and Grady Tate on ... LP, Vinyl record album

London Philharmonic Orchestra

Star Wars & Stereo Space Odyssey
Stereo Gold Award, Late 70s. Near Mint-
A knockoff version of the Star Wars soundtrack, but one that's also played by the London Philharmonic, and with a very competent orchestral sound. Side one has some of the biggest themes from Star Wars, and side two's got other "Stereo Space Odyssey" tracks, including the "Theme ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo Schifrin

Enter The Dragon
Warner, 1973. Near Mint-
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that ... LP, Vinyl record album
