I picked up a copy for £3 from Reddingtons rare records in Birmingham years ago. I gave it to our kid for a birthday pressy. i should have just got him a bottle of Blue Stratos aftershave instead.

Was just discussing the ideal, that A)some people dismiss lp's as part of the dj scene and B) That lp's should be worth as much as 45's . For me Lp's are like works of art compared to 45' ,they

And what a drum sound! Brilliant cracking snare and shuffling beats. Superb.

I'm sure you want comments on the tracks rather than a track list. But as I don't have it, I'll start things off with this taken from Popsike: 

 
 From 1971, out of New Jersey, comes Gloria Barnes with her LP Uptown on Maple M6006. Ultra rare ORIGINAL PRESS of this extremely rare soul/funk LP! Contains the song I'll Call You Back Later, parts of which have been sampled on various records. Eight songs on this LP, including Old Before My Time, I'll Call You Back Later, I Found Myself, Gotta Get Away, You Don't Mean It, Home, She Wants A Stand-In, and I'll Go All The Way. This ultra rare LP features Lee Moses and The Deciples on several of the songs as back-up. The Ohio Players may have been involved in several other songs.

Actually, my post gave all the tracks on the album, but maybe not quite as easy to tell.

I thought you were after comments about the album, what the tracks were like etc, a track list is easy to find on a search engine like google.

 

No matter though, price wise I'd guess somewhere in the £200 to £300 range, going on the prices on Popsike & Collectors Frenzy etc.

Quick personal review;

 

Track 1 - "Old before my time". Old fashioned plodding ballad, with sparse arrangement, does little for me. 2/10

2 "I'll call you back later". Fast funky tinged dancer, with great bassline 6/10

3. "I found myself" Excellent deep soul ballad, great vocal performance 7/10

4. "Gotta get away" Nice Northern sounding dancer 6/10

5. "You don't mean it" Probably the best known tune on the album. frantic floor filler, with killer vocals 8/10

6. "Home"  Midtempo swayer, not the greatest song but well sung 5/10

7  "She wants a stand in" My personal favourite, crossover head nodding magic 9/10

8. "I'll go all the way" Unremarkable ballad 5/10

 

Overall a solid album, with 2 outstanding tracks.

Great album and one of those albums that will appeal in different way depending on what one's preference is in soul music ie head nodding dancers or deep soul ballads. It's the deeper tracks with their raw unpolished vocals that do it for me personally. Saying that I do like all the tracks.

 

Colin Dilnot's breakdown of the album although he misses one track out

Might as well put some tracks up then each to their own can decide what's what for them. Won't bother with You Don't Mean It" as everybody knows it

 

The more danceable

 

I'll Call You Back Later

 

 

Gotta Get Away

 

 

She Wants A Stand In

The deeper tracks which are more my preference. "Home" I think could be played out at certain venues.

 

Home

 

 

I Found Myself

 

 

I'll Go All The Way

 

 

Old Before My Time

It has already been reviewed excellently. It's a a great album overall, but what makes it special to me is that unique raw soulful sound that it has.

Was just discussing the ideal, that A)some people dismiss lp's as part of the dj scene and B) That lp's should be worth as much as 45's .

For me Lp's are like works of art compared to 45' ,they hold far more information ,have so many hidden tracks that are too good to overlook and the pics are art in themselves !

 

 So glad i have this in my collection and although i would dearly love to have a 45 of "i'll call you back later " ,for those times when i would rather not lug a box of lp's with me ,but the other tracks featured above ,plus the original take of " you don't mean it " are some of the most soulful songs you'll ever hear !

One of thee finest lp's ever and worth every $$$$ imho  :hatsoff2:

..some people have defenitely too much money...Top Lp but 900 quid is stupid :lol:

Seen a newsounds on turbo hit $1000 last yr and thought that was high too,but i guess it comes down to how much spare money the buyer has at his disposal.

Is there a real price or value on old vinyl,other than guide price v a personal worth?

Ouch, My no 1 want has now moved to my no 34 will never get.

I take it this was FunkYou? He rivals Sebastian for getting great prices, which I congratulate them on, except when its something I don;t have, and need more than a baby needs milk, Which to be fair there is not many left like that, but this is one of them, I really can't die without owning it can I!

And if Dave Rippoles is not reading this, and he gets a ridiculously high offer completely unrefuseable offer £400, lets keep the latest sale between us, just for now.........

Yes...one of your better birthday presents Jordi  (mind you, £3.00! you tight get!...Blue stratos probably cost more than that, that's why you didnt buy it....)

........I'll swap it back for the 45 of 'call you back later' if you like though...

Wow, never heard the LP version of "Gotta Get Away", blows the Ohio Players "16 Greatest Hits" LP version out of the water. But seeing as how I have the latter, I'll keep spinning that until I can get my hands on one of these beasts.

I have the album and "You don't mean it" is also a different recording to the A&M single. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it is Gloria Barnes singing on the Ohio Players album and "Love slipped through my fingers" is also her. The pressing on Jo-Mar has her credited as Towanda Barnes on both "Slipped" and "Gotta get away". I don't have the Ohio Players album, does it refer to her as vocalist? The Ohio Players are the featured band on her Uptown version.

Only six copies have gone through Popsike in the last few years , the copy that went for £ 127.00 was a top bargain !

So considering it's a true rarity, let's have a show of hands who's got a copy of this magnificent album ,

Who's first up ? .....

okay soul fans , here are the photos of the TWO COPIES of SUSAN PHILLIPS SOFT SEXY SOUL ALL PLATINUM  AP- -3006 , the first photo's  are of  my SEALED COPY , and after that is the vg+ copy . a quick note about myself , i'm a 61 year old Chicago ( south side born )  black male who collects  soul , rock , psych , jazz , experimental ,  collector.  i purchased the sealed copy from usa record dealer CRAIG MOORER IN JULY 2003 for $150.00  set sale  ( if you go to MUSIC STACK'S price guide and type in SUSAN PHILLIPS and in the title box underneath type in SOFT SEXY SOUL , you can see the sale date , and that the copy was SS, )   the OTHER COPY I got for $10.00  a few months after buying the sealed copy , from a dealer in Indiana who found it after I sent him a soul lp wantlist .   so I hope these photo's will help  everyone.
