It would be nice if someone who can read Japanese, or knows what's on this, could update the videos on here. Its impossible to figure out what is on this soundtrack vs. the other two for the movie. I can't seem to find an accurate representation ... See full review
posted a comment on Midori Takada - Through The Looking Glass. 1 day ago
I suspect this has went back to press a number of times recently, and getting a bad pressing is less likely, though some older ones may be floating around, due to this fact: Through The Looking Glass became the No. 2-selling album at the online retailer ... See full review

I find this press sounds very thin and tinny on the high end compared to my US world pacific, which has much greater bottom end and fullness to it. It does something to his lower tone voice I don't like. There is also some reverb added that is annoying.

These other brown cover versions did not exist in the cogs when I added this to my collection only this one. Thanks all.

The closest album to this (after the other two of Doheny's early albums which are also awesome) is another blue eyed soul brother Bobby Caldwell. His first record is probably as equally unknown by most as this album (and almost equally celebrated by ... See full review

What is this BS release? Somebody selling on amazon makes a CD from a digitized record? That is not a release worthy of being listed here on the cogs.

How about the sound quality on these? I'd like to know if they are worth picking up. they seem so questionable.
posted a review of Duran Duran - Seven And The Ragged Tiger. 19 days ago
I think this is a great album that perfectly captures the times. The 80's started getting really weird and artsy from '82 to '86, and lots of bands just got really experimental with the mash-up of influences going on. Blue Moon on Monday to me is their ... See full review

There is no point in buying Doxy, DOL, Waxtime records. They are subject to the EU free copyright. After 50 years copyright expires in Europe so anyone can take and make a record. They just get the best source they can, an old record or cd if its been ... See full review

This album is a relatively unknown gem. A fave in my multi-genre collection. Gives Elvis a run for his money, who he actually wrote songs for. Some just jamming rockabilly tunes and other pearls of good songwriting/singing. Great early stuff before he ... See full review

Any word on how this press sounds? The newer repress doesn't seem legit since Bamboo label hasn't existed for a long time. I'm not sure how well done Luv 'n hate represses are. Well mastered for vinyl Lp, or levels sound like it was meant to be on CD?

I bought two copies of this on the budget status label. The vinyl was extremely worn on both, yet looked like it had very little scratches and were well cared for. I think the vinyl formula using recycled vinyl for these Status pressings may have just ... See full review

I don't understand why this isn't rated higher. Like others have said the production on this is insanely good. The beats on this are just some of the best interesting beats captured on record working in pop funk songs. Beats, including Prince's signature ... See full review

From a number of sources I'm quite certain Turn Table records was Jackie's own label and he released this himself on his own label for the US while in New York. It was still printed with the others in Canada though. Perhaps an attempt to distribute his ... See full review

I agree with the other review. This record is great. In that vein of well orchestrated soul funk jazz Lps like David Axelrod's Song of Innocence. It's the only Quincy I deemed a must have, and you need at least one Quincy. Cheap too.

I just found this in $1 bin looking really bad. VG- to G. It even has a dent in it that I thought would ruin the last songs on both sides. It plays VG+ all the way through. It says on the back this record contains miracle surface 317X. I would usually ... See full review

This is one of the best Bob Marleys to grab. This is basically an analogue press of the sought after Soul Rebel album remastered with the addition of my favorite, and one of Bob Marley's best songs- the gothy 'Mr. Brown'! This is the only LP with that ... See full review

I second that about Gimac123's misguided comment. I think the brother more than did his time and was not at all following McGriff. That comment is just very off, and not informed. The albums mentioned by McGriff are great, but more simplistic harder funk ... See full review

I have a signed copy of this version. I'm guessing they were a small sample batch/ promo like press, that the artist and others received some before they were pressed en masse. This album is titled well because it just defines Lee as this singular unique ... See full review

Loving this first press from France. Grab it while you can. Its a nice thick 150-160 vinyl and sounds perfect, but the cover is thin and flimsy. I personally think the Nosferatu acid drawing on this cover is cooler than the other album art with goofy ... See full review

I definitely disagree with the long negative review. James B. was at the top of his game and sound. This album does have some funny stuff on it with the little conceptual adventure it took in spots, but its pretty negligible and it mostly jams like both ... See full review

This is a killer record. Must just be relatively unknown in its rarity. Some pretty diverse tracks, but all solid in themselves. In my top five of blacksploitation soundtracks. Pick it up if you get a chance.

I agree with demonfuzz and you can see it by the players that they aren't 70's peeps. Definitely a farce and just some modern dirty funk. Too bad there aren't more porn soundtracks that got released on vinyl in the 70's. Check out Patrick Cowley's Muscle ... See full review

Has this on the back and they make sure to clear copyright:

This is very nice thick 150-160? gram press that sounds great. Unless you have a big thing for first presses, I'd say you might as well save some bucks and grab one of these second red big "E" label editions.

Most likely a 1980 press. That is when Elektra US used the same style label. They didn't issue many Lps between 1980 - '84 (even of the most popular artist) when they changed the label style to the half black/red. I don't care what others say, I like ... See full review
