Philip Bailey's looking hipper than usual on the cover – and he's sounding hipper than usual within – thanks to fantastic production help from Robert Glasper, Christian McBride, and Chick Corea – all artists who play on the record, and help give Bailey a really timeless sense of soul! The man himself needs no introduction – thanks to his long legacy in Earth Wind & Fire, and a range of great solo records too – but there's really something different, and something special taking place here – as Bailey pushes both his vocal range and sense of songform, working through music by Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Oscar Brown Jr, and even the Talking Heads – while also turning in some great songs of his own, co-penned with some of the album's collaborators. The instrumentation is served up by a dream group of jazz talents – Kamasi Washington on tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, Robert Glasper and Chick Corea on keyboards, Steve Wilson on saxes and flute, Lionel Loueke on guitar,and Christian McBride on bass – and although the record features guest vocals from Bilal and Casey Benjamin, it's Bailey's work that's the real main attraction. Titles include "We're A Winner", "Stairway To The Stars", "Just To Keep Your Satisfied", "Once In A Lifetime", "Billy Jack", "You're Everything", "Brooklyn Blues", "Sacred Sounds", and "Love Will Find A Way".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Irene Reid

It's Too Late
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Lovely vocal work from Irene Reid – deeply soulful, yet also quite classy – thanks to some well-done arrangements by Frank Foster and Mort Garson, both of whom bring a fuller, jazzier feel to the set. There's almost a Nancy Wilson sort of approach to the album, although the sound is a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Howard Tate

Get It While You Can
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good
Howard Tate is one of the most overlooked soul singers of the late 60's – and this is his only album from that decade! Part of the problem was probably that he recorded for Verve, a label that didn't really put its soul catalog that well (even though the label cut some excellent uptown sides ...

Chic

C'est Chic
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
A massive set from the legendary Chic – and a set that has the dancefloor combo coming down perfectly throughout! Riffing Nile Rodgers guitars really make the tunes cook – as does the superb production – and although the record played plenty in discos and radios of the mainstream ... LP, Vinyl record album

Winstons

Color Him Father
Metromedia, Late 60s. Fair
The one and only album ever cut by The Winstons – an obscure mixed-race soul combo who had roots in Otis Redding's touring band, and who hit big with a soul Grammy in 1969 for the title track to this one, "Color Him Father". The cut's an amazing document of its time, a sweet little ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
The cover and the title are a great illustration of the growth of Bobby Womack on this classic 70s set – a mode of presentation that's maybe a bit more badass than before, without the down-home image of Bobby holding his guitar! Some aspects of the record are plenty darn righteous – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Pedicin

Michael Pedicin Jr
Philadelphia International, 1979. Near Mint-
Pedicin was a studio player at Philly – with a sweeping saxophone sound that showed up in more than a few good licks on the label's big hits. This album's one of two that he cut as a headliner, and it's sort of a smooth jazz affair, with touches of instrumental Philly. The record's not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rivingtons

Doin The Bird
Liberty, Early 60s. Fair
A great batch of raw soul groovers – with a shouting R&B feel that's totally great! You probably know The Rivingtons for their classic "Papa Oom Mow Mow", one of the strangest vocal group cuts of all time – and one of those oldies we never tire of hearing! The album's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1970s. Near Mint-
Great cuts from the second decade of Marvin Gaye's career at Motown – really magic numbers pulled from that 70s period when he was really taking off with his music! There's a righteous undercurrent here that goes way beyond the simple soul of the 60s – and the set offers a great cross-s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Average White Band

Aftershock
Track, 1988. Near Mint-
Titles include "The Spirit Of Love", "Sticky Situation", "I'll Get Over You", "Later We'll Be Greater", "We're In Too Deep", "Let's Go All The Way", and "Love At First Sight". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1968. Near Mint-
Groundbreaking work from Laura Nyro – exactly the kind of record that sums up the unique genius in her music! The record's not folk, not pop, not soul, nor jazz vocals – but a new sort of style that draws a bit from all those genres, and comes up with a bold new approach that opened ...
