Isley Brothers Greatest Hits (UK pressing)

LP (Item 949730) Motown/EMI (UK), Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

A beautiful UK collection of the mid-60s music the Isley Brothers recorded for Motown – mostly tracks written by the Holland Dozier Holland team, with titles that include "Nowhere To Run", "This Old Heart Of Mine", "That's The Way Love Is", "I Hear A Symphony", "Take Some Time Out For Love", "I Guess I'll Always Love You", "Little Miss Sweetness", "Behind A Painted Smile", and "Put Yourself In My Place".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Vintage Starline pressing, with a nice flipback cover!)

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.

A funky album – but one that we love best for the mellow tracks!

Keep It Comin'
Motown, 1972/1977. Very Good+
Later work from Valerie – still produced in conjunction with Nick Ashford, and sporting the strident soulful bounce of the classic Ashford & Simpson sound – but also done with a more sophisticated soul sound that shows that Val could have entered Marlena Shaw territory, had she been ...

Jackson 5

Third Album
Motown, 1970. Very Good
The Jacksons' third album for Motown – and definitely one that has the quintet moving full steam ahead!

Dazz Band

Keep It Live
Motown, 1982. Very Good
Dazz Band keep it plenty live on this early 80s gem – a killer set from the group's hit run for Motown! The set's got a bouncy groove that's very much in the best Motown funk style at the time – lots of bass at the bottom, and plenty tight on production – but never as smooth or ...

Motown, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
A fantastic early demonstration of the solo powers of Diana Ross – a live date from Vegas, and one that has her commanding the stage not just as a singer of soul music, but as a female star ready to rival the talents of any of her contemporaries in the mainstream!

Jerry Butler

Love's On The Menu
Motown, 1976. Very Good+
An overlooked sleeper from Jerry Butler – the kind of record that follows nicely off of his best strengths for Mercury in the early 70s – and which has him furthering the level of mature soul that was his greatest contribution to music in the decade! As before, the best tunes here are ... LP, Vinyl record album
