Strange Behavior

LP (Item 957717) Polygram, 1986 — Condition: Sealed

(Still sealed with hype sticker. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Hall & Oates

Private Eyes
RCA, 1981. Very Good+
What can we say? We winced at this one back when it came out, but over the years, it's got a real "Free Soul" appeal to us – with vocals that are surprisingly soulful in parts, some nice 80s mellow soul instrumentation, and even a few hooks that are real guilty pleasures. Includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1976. Near Mint-

ZZ Top

Fandango
London, 1975. Very Good+
Texas boogie badassery from the great ZZ Top – the follow-up to the absolutely killer Tres Hombres! One side features the trio doing what it does best – slaying a live audience, this one at The Warehouse in New Orleans – and the other side features a handful of hard grooving ...

Ten Years After

Stonedhenge
Deram, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
The title and cover are a great illustration of the direction that Ten Years After is taking here – a really wonderful blend of trippier influences with the sharp-edged, blues-influenced sound at their core! Even a look at the surface of the record will show you that something different is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brother To Brother

Let Your Mind Be Free
Turbo, 1976. Very Good+
The second album by this lost East Coast funk act – and although not as totally excellent as their first, still a very nice record that's filled with choppy up-tempo grooves, and some nice dancefloor soul. There's plenty of funky keyboards in the mix – moog, clavinet, and Arp – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brunswick, 1960s. Very Good+
A tasty set of Jackie's more famous singles for Brunswick – and a lot more hard hitting than some of his other full LPs for the label at the time! Titles include "Lonely Teardrops", "Baby Workout", "Higher & Higher", "Whispers (Gettin' Louder)", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Millie Jackson

Caught Up
Spring, 1974. Very Good+
Seminal 70s southern soul from Millie Jackson – a record that's head and shoulders above most of what she recorded in later years! Before she got all naughty and raunchy, Millie Jackson was one of the best female soul singers to come out of the south – and this album's a work of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson Pickett

I'm In Love
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
Classic heavy soul from Wilson – with some great production from Tommy Cogbill, and a nice raw southern sound. The record features 3 strong early Bobby Womack tracks – "I'm In Love", "Jealous Love", and "I've Come A Long Way" – plus Pickett's own ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gladys Knight & The Pips

If I Were Your Woman
Motown, 1971. Very Good+
A new level of sophistication for Gladys Knight – and a record that opened the door to the mellower style that would break big for her in the 70s! The title cut is almost worth the price of the record alone – a slow-stepping, blue-tinged number that perfectly blends Knight's lead ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry Ross Symposium

Jerry Ross Symposium Vol 2
Motown, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sweet and easy grooving from The Jerry Ross Symposium!
