New LPs/CDs/Cassettes/Audio Files You Recently Acquired

I picked up a great used copy of Marvin Gaye's "What;s Going On" today, as well as the Eagles' "Desperado" LP. Too bad Marvin Gaye's album is still as relevant today as when it came out all those years ago... What have y'all picked up recently for music that touches your soul?

I've been eyeing his greatest hits on Vinyl, but haven't bitten. Found these this month Thrift Store in B+ condition, so it was exciting to find two of his albums in great condition. First released in 67. Mine is the 76 release on another label Kory Records and different cover and sound quality is really good.😲🎀

Producer – Curtis Rodgers, Palmer James
Written-By – Al Green (tracks: A3), C. Rodgers* (tracks: A1, A6, B4), P. James* (tracks: A1-A2, A4, A6, B1, B5), R. Williams* (tracks: B3), T. Watkins* (tracks: A5, B2, B5)

Back Up Train is Al Green's debut album, released by Hot Line Records, a label formed by Palmer James and Curtis Rodgers, high school friends of Al Green's. This album was released prior to signing with Hi Records and still lists his name as "Greene" (the actual correct spelling of his name). The title track was originally released in January 1967 as a single under the band name "Al Greene and The Soul Mates".

😲The second one I got. B+ condition. Man these recordings are great. 🎀

The Belle Album is the 12th studio album by soul musician Al Green. It is his first album recorded without longtime producer Willie Mitchell, owner of Green's former label, Hi Records. With Mitchell and his label Green also abandoned the famed Hi Rhythm Section, which had previously played a large part in defining Green's distinctive musical style. This also marks the first instance in which Green plays lead guitar on his records.🎸🎸🎸

Hi PT Did you know there is a Detroit Mix? It's the version Marvin gave to the record company then they added more to the mix. It's on CD, LP and YouTube if you wanna hear it.
