Item Description

LP: Messengers Incorporated: Soulful Proclamation Original LP SMI-5001 out of Oklahoma City
Grade: Cover: Vg + light wear to back cover see pics. In a photo it looks like the spine was taped but that is in fact the artwork design. There is no taping, no splits, it is clean. Vinyl: Vg+ A side has a few light marks which do not affect play for the most part: I did hear a couple of very very light clicks hiding under the music of He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother but they are hardly audible. B side looks cleaner though there is ultra small mark a couple of mm long that cause clicking at the beginning of the intro to Eleanor Rigsby. Listen to the soundclip.
Comment: Holy grail private press rare groove LP. Title cut is a classic funk tune that's right up there with Cult, or Carl “Sherlock” Holmes. Same goes for Frequency Response, which is even better to my ears. There are some lovely soul cuts on this one as well. (This is the same band that did the “L.A. Will Make You Pay LP”). High quality musicianship throughout. Note that even though this is a private label that put out very few copies it was pressed very well... the fidelity is superb.
