Avco Mobile Discotheque Vol 1

LP (Item 942513) Avco (UK), Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-
A UK-only set, and a great mix of east coast soul and early club grooves from Avco Records – including three rare singles by LJ Reynolds & The Chocolat Syrup, a few by Maxine Brown, Donald Height, and Donnie Elbert – and more from the Young Hearts, Limmie & Family Cookin, and Broad Street Gang!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some light wear, bu tthis is a nice copy overall.)

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.

Van McCoy & The Soul City Symphony

Love Is The Answer
Avco, 1974. Very Good+
Sweet stepping Van – an excellent album of instrumental grooves recorded right before his "Hustle" fame, but with a very similar feel! The sound is almost that of Sigma Philly – but things are a bit more polished, and there's more of a focus on the strings and woodwinds than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Van McCoy

Disco Kid
Avco, 1975. Very Good+
A clear follow-up to "The Hustle" (not on this album), with a number of tracks that come close to the genius of that track, but never quite manage it altogether. Van's on lead vocals, and the record's got some good keyboard work by Paul Griffin, Richard Tee, and Leon Pendarvis. Includes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stylistics

Round 2 (no fists)
Avco, 1972. Very Good
Landmark harmony soul from The Stylistics – a set that's every bit as wonderful as their debut, with the kind of sweet, soulful sound that got played over and over and over and over again back in the day! The album's got a subtle sort of power, though – one that lies not only in its ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam & Dave

Back At Cha
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
A rare late LP Sam & Dave cut for United Artists in the mid 70s – with raw & gritty soul vocals and rough hewn, yet soulfully resonant production by Steve Cropper, and backing by a slew of Memphis sessions specialists! Back At Cha is a coulda-shoulda-woulda been great comeback effort ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus Thomas

That Woman Is Poison
Alligator, 1988. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Midnight Love
Columbia, 1982. Near Mint-
Marvin Gaye's last album ever – and a sensuous batch of grooves that almost return him to the sound of Let's Get It On! The style here is a bit more modern, but the sound is still great – a smoother approach to soul than most of Gaye's contemporaries at the time, recorded in a way that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & Fire

All 'N All
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint- 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

Randy Crawford

Everything Must Change
Warner, 1976. Near Mint-
The sublime first album from Randy Crawford – a set that's got a very strong jazzy vibe throughout – and which really shows the great place from which Randy started! There's a careful and classy mix of jazz, soul, and modern R&B throughout – never overdone, but often filled ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rick James

Glow
Gordy, 1985. Near Mint-
Rick James hits a smoother sort of style here – one that's almost a compressed take on the mainstream version of funk first crafted on his earlier records, fused into a more radio-friendly approach for the Prince generation! The sound's actually not that bad – and the record has an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Professor Longhair

Crawfish Fiesta
Alligator, 1980. Near Mint-
Titles include "Red Beans", "Willie Fugal's Blues", "Crawfish Fiesta", "It's My Fault Darling", and "Her Mind Is Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Rick James

Flag
Gordy, 1986. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1979. Sealed Gatefold
Smooth jazzy work from Deodato – a record that takes off from his electric keyboard work of the early 70s, and shows his growing interest in modern soul and R&B a the time! Deodato's still a few years way from some of his famous soul production work, but he's already got a great ear for ... LP, Vinyl record album
