Salsa

LP (Item 986970) RCA (Philippines), 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Cover has hype stickers and a 4 inch split in the bottom seam.)

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.

DJ Rogers

Love, Music & Life
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
Like all of DJ's RCA LPs, this one's a very nice batch of smooth mellow soul, with tight arrangments that have DJ on electric piano and other keyboards, and singing in his beautiful rich voice. Titles include "Love Is All I Need", "Saved By Love", "Love Is On The Way" ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1981. Very Good+
A great 80s groove from Thelma Houston – a set with arrangements that are leaner and meaner than before, still topped with those amazing soul diva vocals! Arrangements on the set are handled by George Tobin & Mike Piccirillo – who really give the album a nice sort of focus – ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1968. Very Good
A posthumous collection of material that Sam recorded for RCA before his untimely death – not really a greatest hits collection, but a lot better than the usual "house cleaning" type of record that gets issued in this sort of situation. 11 tracks in all, including "Blowin' In ...

RCA (UK), Early 80s. Near Mint-

Try A Little Love
RCA, 1965. Very Good-
Released shortly after Sam's death, this is a beautiful batch of ballad tracks to remember how sweet his voice was. The production's a bit pop, but Sam's singing is as heavenly as ever. Titles include "When A Boy Falls In Love", "Try A Little Love", "Bridge Of Tears" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Griffith

Together, Togetherness
RCA, 1974. Sealed
Very very very groovy mix of soulful instrumentation and cool RCA production. Johnny Griffith lays down some cool piano lines set amidst a wave of groovy strings and rhythm, and grooves come crashing in and echo away as the next one falls into line. The monster cut is "Love is Just a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jesse Belvin

Just Jesse Belvin
RCA, 1959. Near Mint-
Sublime work by a singer who should have dominated the 60s – had he not left this planet in an auto accident early in his short career! Jesse is wonderful here – getting even more coolness and class on RCA than he did in an indie setting – with help from the groups of Shorty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pointer Sisters

Black & White
RCA, 1981. Near Mint-
A great step into the 80s for The Pointer Sisters – a record that has them bringing in themes that are a bit more soulful than some of their previous efforts! The album's still got all the big crossover potential of their other hits – but the groove's got a solidly soulful vibe overall ... LP, Vinyl record album

Counts

Love Sign
Aware, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
Quite possibly the most righteous work ever from The Counts – a move away from the heavier funk of their Westbound years, and a shift into some great jazz-based material! The vibe here draws heavily on the electric keyboard scene of the early 70s – with echoes of Lonnie Liston Smith's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Withers

Still Bill
Sussex, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Bill Withers' second album – even more wonderful than the first! The record's a perfect summation of all that made Bill so great – warm raspy vocals, sweet soulful production, mature songwriting, and just the right use of acoustic guitar to accent all the best elements in the music! ...

Gene Chandler

'80
Chi Sound/20th Century, 1980. Sealed
A nice record of modern soul that got a bit overlooked at the time because of the poor fate of the Chi-Sound label. The record's filled with Chicago soul talent like Tom Tom 84, Sonny Sanders, and Carl Davis, and it's a good updating of Gene's Chicago soul sound towards a style that's more modern ...
