Tribute To Al Jackson

LP (Item 949733) Stax/Pye (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

A great UK tribute to the mighty Al Jackson – the man whose drums were an important part of Stax Records at the start, and who then rose to much more creative force within the label! The set features tracks with Al on drums, and Al in the production chair – work by Little Milton, Soul Children, Booker & The MGs, Johnny Taylor, Staple Singers, Shirley Brown, and William Bell!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Relating
Stax, 1973. Very Good+

Booker T & The MGs

Hip Hug-Her
Stax, 1967. Very Good+
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years!

Rose Royce/Norman Whitfield

Car Wash – Original Soundtrack
MCA, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A solid bit of heavy funk – and one of the last strong-selling soundtracks of the blacksploitation era!

Mid-period Stylistics, recorded after their association with Thom Bell and Linda Creed, and during the time that the group was handled by Hugo & Luigi.

Matter Of Fact
Kayvette, 1978. Near Mint-
A killer album of southern soul harmony from The Facts Of Life – a trio with one female singer, two guys, and a great sound overall!

Freddie Jackson was certainly one of the biggest new soul stars of the 80s – and this debut LP is still a treasure!
