Running Away (long, short)

12-inch (Item 11769) Polydor, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

✈
Doobie-doo doobie-doo! One of the catchiest Roy Ayers dancefloor tracks ever – a bassy bumping thumper that wonderfully skirts the line between clubby and funky! The track's got female vocals singing along with the hook – all in a mode that's quite similar to the most uptempo work by Ramp – and the tune may well be best known for it's famous sample use by Tribe Called Quest on their classic "Description Of A Fool"!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Stupid title, but a great little groover from Roy! The track's got a smooth 80s groove sound – stepping along with a good midtempo pace, with enough room for Roy's vibes, and even a bit of a monologue at the beginning that's done with Roy's usual warmth and good nature! 12-inch, Vinyl record

20th Century, 1981. Very Good+
The two best tracks off Carl Carlton's first, self-titled LP, both produced by Leon Haywood, the a-side an unstoppable 80s groove jam, and the flip a nicely popping smooth stepper. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Capitol, 1986. Very Good+
Not quite up to par with "Atomic Dog" or any of his 70s output, this is still a respectable mid 80s commercial funk effort, with George kind of taking off on Cameo's take on his own sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jack Ashford handled this obscure little record of Christmas disco tracks – and the sound is similar to some of his own work on the Magic Disc label, although with the requisite Christmas touches! 12-inch, Vinyl record
