Running Away (long, short)

12-inch (Item 11769) Polydor, 1977 — Condition: Very Good
(pic cover)

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"!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

If you buy one funky record today, make sure it's this one! "She's The One", a lost track by James, is remixed using the famous "Funky Drummer" break in this 1988 version by Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim)! But even better than that, the flipside contains the original "Funky ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1979. Near Mint-
Funky club from Olympic Runners – a bit smoother here than earlier records, but also plenty darn soulful! "The Bitch" might be a bit off-putting as a title, but the groove is laid out by some tightly-driven basslines, and the overall vocals are a bit more soulful than some of the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Turbo/Sugar Hill, 1979. Good+
"We Got The Funk" is a tune that definitely earns its title – a classic bit of boogie – and one of the few really standout non-hip hop tracks from Sugar Hill back in the day! The tune's a killer all the way through – almost a hip hop groove at times, save for the vocals ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

A surprisingly great dancefloor track from Japanese fusion maestro Ryo Kawasaki! The single takes the original "Pleasure Garden" tune from one of Ryo's original albums, and gives it a nice late 80s sort of house spin. There's some warm acoustic piano next to the guitar and keys – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of our favorite tunes from the old school – a beautiful blend of vocoder vocals, sinister keyboards, and some cool splashy beats!
