Good Times

LP (Item 8683) De-Lite, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

Often overlooked amidst the bigger early albums by Kool & The Gang – but a totally solid record of funky stuff that's right up there with their best work! The band is super-tight at this point, grooving along in a hard drum, heavy bass, wah wah guitar frenzy – and even the vocals are great by this point, with that good mix of funky soul and humor that made the band so much more entertaining than some of their contemporaries. Tracks include the spacey "Wild Is Love", the super-dope "Rated X" and "North East South West", the mellow jazz number "I Remember John W Coltrane", and the cuts "Good Times", "Country Times", and "Making Merry Music". (Cover has a cutout notch and some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

United Artists, Late 60s. Very Good
A goofy mix of groovy instrumental tracks with a weird "Apache"-esque instrumentation made up of some nicely processed guitars.

Do You Have The Time
20th Century, 1972. Very Good
Once a raw harmony group, the Younghearts moved into a sweeter, smoother soul vein for their 20th Century recordings, and the result is an excellent batch of modern soul tracks with a nice groove to them. This album includes their great groover "Do You Have The Time (parts 1 & 2)", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hell Up In Harlem
Motown, 1974. Very Good
Despite what you think of Edwin Starr otherwise, he did a great job on this soundtrack, which is every bit as funky as any of Willie Hutch's work for other Motown scores! Larry Mizell and Dennis Coffey help out on the instrumentation – so you know the album's as funky as can be – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
