Fire
Used - LP - SRM-1-1013
1974 Gatefold Original Featuring The Iconic Fireman's Hose Cover Photo. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “After Greatly Increasing Their Visibility With Skin Tight, The Ohio Players Became Even More Visible With Fire -- An Unpredictable Masterpiece That Boasted Such Explosive Horn-Driven Funk Jewels As "Smoke" And The Wildly Addictive Title Song. The Players Were Always Best Known For Their Hard-Edged Funk, But In Fact, There Was Much More To Their Legacy. "I Want To Be Free," The Almost Innocent "Together," And The Remorseful "It's All Over" Demonstrate That Their Ballads And Slower Material Could Be First-Rate Soul Treasures. The Influence Of Gospel Imagery And The Black Church Experience Had Asserted Itself On Skin Tight's "Is Anybody Gonna Be Saved," And Does So Once Again On The Intense "What The Hell" And The Hit "Runnin' From The Devil." Without Question, Fire Was One Of The Ohio Players' Greatest Triumphs -- Both Commercially And Artistically.” Alex Henderson, All Music Guide. more

Honey
Used - LP - SRM-1-1038
1975 Gatefold Original. LP Appears Unplayed. Corner Cut Honey May Have Had The Most Controversial LP Cover Of 1975. Its Erotic Cover, Which Depicted A Nude Model Covered In Honey, Was Protested By Feminists When It Was Alleged That The Model Had Become Stuck To The Floor During The Photo Shoot. Some Retailers, In Fact, Refused To Carry It. The Album Includes Such Hard-Driving Funk As "Love Rollercoaster" (A Song That Was Sampled To Death By Rappers In The 1980s And '90s And Covered By The Red Hot Chili Peppers In 1996), "Fopp," And The Playfully Jazz-Influenced Hit "Sweet Sticky Thing." more

Pleasure
New - LP - W 220
Sealed Gatefold Second Catalog Number With Cut Corner. “A Lot Of Bands Were Providing Funk In 1972, But Not Many Of Them Used Jazz Progressions As Creatively As The Players Use Them On "Laid It," "Walked Away From You," And Pleasure's Title Song. Those Tracks Are Gems, And The Players Are Equally Captivating On The Sweet Soul Ballad "Varee Is Love." But The Best Known Tune On The Album Is The Goofy "Funky Worm," Which Employed The Players' Amusing Granny Character And Was, In 1972, Their Biggest Hit To Date. Long After The Band's Popularity Faded, "Funky Worm" Would Live On In The 1980s And 1990s Thanks To The Various Hip-Hoppers Who Sampled Its Irresistible Bassline. Like Pain In 1971, Pleasure Had A Kinky Cover That Generated Some Controversy -- The Same Bald Woman Who Brandished A Bullwhip And Wore Dominatrix Attire On The Front Cover Of Pain Was Chained Up On The Cover Of Pleasure. Some Folks Found The Players' Kinky LP Covers Intriguing, While Others Were Shocked And Offended. And The Players, Having Struggled In The 1960s, Were Happy To Be Noticed. But Ultimately, It Is The Quality Of The Music -- Not The Bondage-Minded Cover -- That Makes Pleasure A Funk Classic.” – Alex Henderson, AMG more

Skin Tight
Used - LP - SRM-1-705
1974 Gatefold Original. Vinyl Plays NM. Cover Has Minor Edge Creasing On Back, Small Mouth Fray. "Skin Tight Was A Major Turning Point For The Ohio Players, Who Had Enjoyed Several Hits On Black Radio (Including "Pain," "Funky Worm," "Varee Is Love," And "I Wanna Hear From You") But Hadn't Been Huge. Switching From Westbound To Mercury, The Dayton Funksters Became Exactly That -- Huge -- And Went From Enjoying A Cult Following To Being One Of The Most Celebrated Funk Bands Of The 1970s. With Skin Tight, The Band's Erotic Album Covers Went From Employing Bizarre S&m/bondage Imagery To Being More Playboy-ish, And Its Music Became Less Abstract (But Remained Quite Risk-taking And Unpredictable). The Title Song And "Jive Turkey" Are Down And Dirty Funk Classics, And The Jazz-influenced "Heaven Must Be Like This" Illustrates The Fact That The Players Could Also Be Captivatingly Romantic." -Alex Henderson, AMG more
