vinyl and cover in good used condition VG cover has some shelf & ring wear

Very Good (VG) - A Record that displays some degree of visible signs of handling and playing such as loss of vinyl luster, light surface scratches, groove wear and spindle trails. A VG record may look like it will have some audible surface noise when it is played, although any noise will not overwhelm the music or ruin the listening experience. Excellent "listeners" copy.


All songs composed by The Ohio Players.

"Pleasure" (5:28) "Laid It" (3:00) " Pride and Vanity " (4:22) "Walt's First Trip" (3:08) "Varee is Love" (2:43) "Walked Away From You" (2:29) "Paint Me" (2:02) " Funky Worm " (2:35) "Our Love Has Died" (4:50)

Pleasure is the 4th album by The Ohio Players and the second released through the Westbound label. The group continue with vocal harmonies more reminiscent of their earlier work than what they would do when they moved to Mercury two years later, and would often show jazz tendencies with some of their musical arrangements. The songs are a mixture of radio-friendly material with songs that come off as late night studio jam sessions, such as "Walter's First Trip".

The song " Funky Worm " was released as a single and went to #1 on the Billboard R&B charts, their biggest hit during their time with Westbound. The song, about a unique worm that enjoyed going in mysterious places, would later be sampled by a number of producers in hip-hop and R&B during the late 80's and early 90's.

The single and album mixes of "Funky Worm" are slightly different, most notably the opening drum break and the synthesizer solo that represents the sound of the worm. Upon listening to hip-hop and R&B songs that have sampled it, one can detect if they used the single or album version.

The album was produced by the band, and engineered by Arlen Smith. The cover photo was taken by Joel Brodsky
