(Don't Worry) If There's A Hell Below We're All Gonna Go/Makings Of You

7-inch (Item 2367) Curtom, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good+
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record


Two classics from Curtis' first solo album! "Hell Below" is here in a shorter single version – leaving off the intro, and beginning smack in the middle of the tight wah wah groove. "Makings Of You" is a mellow track with a floating and baroque quality – strings and soul coming together, almost in a Charles Stepney mode, with wonderful wonderful vocals from Curtis!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Vinyl has a slight warp but plays fine. Label has a bit of pen.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Curtom, 1974. Near Mint-
Two excellent cuts from this great Chicago harmony group! "You Bring Out The Best" is a fantastic Leroy Hutson-esque cut – with a hook that won't quit, a sound that's sweet yet hip, and vocals that are completely sublime! "You Can't Keep Me Running" is more of the same ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

One Woman/I'm A Now Girl
Duo, Early 70s. Very Good
2 rare sides by Jo Ann Garrett – recorded after her album on Chess, with production by Andre Williams! "One Woman" is a sweet, sad ballad – pretty nice, but the real treat here is "Now Girl"! That tune's got a snapping little groove – just a touch of funk ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
ABC, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Oh for the days of the "drop out" single! We're not sure why don't they ever make these any more, but this cut's a great reminder of the genre at its best – done with a simple message that never gets too complicated – set to upbeat and bouncing arrangements from Johnny Pate, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Velvet Hammer

Party Hearty/Happy
Soozi, 1977. Very Good+
Very nice modern soul tracks by this obscure Chicago group. "Party Hearty" has an uptempo dancefloor groove, with nice harmony vocals, and "Happy" has a smooth mellow sound that's got a bit of a Leroy Hutson feel to it. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic, Mid 60s. Very Good
Beautiful uptown soul by Barbara Lewis, and a track we've heard a million times, but still love to death! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Lamarr, Late 60s. Very Good
Brilliant non-LP work by the Esquires! Unlike their uptempo hits, this single has a nice slow groove feel, with a sly sexy sound, sort of like the Isley Brothers tracks on early T-neck albums. Excellent Chicago harmony soul, with stellar production by Bill "Bunky" Sheppard. Trust us ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Jay Pee, Early 70s. Very Good
A nice little single from this kiddie soul group! "Will You Still Be Mine" is a pretty nice sweet soul ballad – in the mode of work by the Ponderosa Twins or Jimmie Briscoe – but the real groover is "Here's Some Dances", an uptempo number with some nice drums, and a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
