Hell Up In Harlem

LP (Item 9526) Motown, 1974 — Condition: Very Good
Also available
Edwin Starr — Hell Up In Harlem ... LP 9.99

Despite what you think of Edwin Starr otherwise, he did a great job on this soundtrack, which is every bit as funky as any of Willie Hutch's work for other Motown scores! Larry Mizell and Dennis Coffey help out on the instrumentation – so you know the album's as funky as can be – and the tracks are a nice mix of vocals and instrumentals. Titles include "Don't It Feel Good To Be Free", "Ain't It Hell Up In Harlem", "Airport Chase", and the massive "Easin' In".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Edwin Starr

Clean
20th Century, 1978. Sealed
A solid entry from Edwin Starr's late 70s comeback into the clubs – a set that's miles from his harder soul for Motown, but which still has some pretty great vocals overall! Edwin's working here with Lamont Dozier, who helps bring his Detroit groove into smoother California territory – ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century, 1980. Near Mint-
One of Edwin Starr's LPs from the end of the 70's, when he was doing a lot of uptempo funky tracks with a dancefloor feel. This LP's got a fair number of those, plus the occasional slower cut. Tracks include "Boop Boop Song", "Get Up – Whirlpool", "Bigger & ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jermaine Jackson

Feel The Fire
Motown, 1977. Near Mint-
Jermaine's going the way of most of Motown at this point – popping the bass pretty heavily, and grooving in a smooth funky mode. The cuts that go too over the top with the funky stuff definitely lose us – but there's a few decent mellow soul tracks that redeem the album, and which keep ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supremes

Love Child
Motown, 1968. Very Good+
The album's got a slightly grittier image than most of the other 60s records by The Supremes – perfect for the title track, and its slight message of social commentary! The trio weren't heading into the same sort of territory as The Temptations or some of the other Norman Whitfield projects ... LP, Vinyl record album
