Since You Came Into My Life/I Know You Need A Friend

7-inch (Item 1199) Mocha, 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

Ben & the Cheers lay down two hard soul ballads with arrangements by James Mack.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a Mocha sleeve.)

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.

Gone!/Funny Changes
Sagport, Late 60s. Very Good
"Gone" is a sock-hard harmony soul number – nice and swinging, with a soaring Northern Soul groove that we really like – and "Funny Changes" is equally great, a slower ballad-type number, done with a nice use of vibes underneath the harmony vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1972. Very Good
Funky stuff! Side one features Lyn Collins' famous version of "Think", much harder and heavier than any previous versions of the tune! The flipside's nice, too – and features a very dope laidback version of "Ain't No Sunshine", with Lyn's voice in fine fine form! Both ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Josie, Late 60s. Good
Classic funky soul from The Meters! "Sophisticated Cissy" was a follow-up to "Cissy Strut", and it's got the same tight grooves as that one – and some great Meters guitar! "Sehorns Farms" is another Meters classic – and the single's the kind of double-head ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1973. Good+
2 killers by the JBs! "Doing It To Death" is one of their best tracks from the early days – with a funky riffing sound you'll know immediately. "Everybody Got Soul" is an excellent party track with a great Maceo solo – lots of grooves, and the band is tight tight ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, 1971. Very Good
Funky funky Rufus! This one's a monster – with great drums, rolling bass, and riffing guitar that scratches up the whole dark track to keep it nice and funky! Rufus' vocals hardly get in the way, and the cut's one of his funkiest ever! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Tamla, 1972. Very Good-
A super-dope song from Marvin Gaye – and one that wasn't originally issued on LP! The track is a very righteous, very political tune – sounding almost more like Curtis Mayfield than Marvin, and with a heavy funky approach to the groove that takes the cut way past its politics! Really ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Boo, Late 60s. Good+
Great bit of Chicago soul, with some writing and production by Cleveland Eaton, and really great harmony vocals that dip and twist, yet sound super dark and moody! "Lifetime" is a great cut, with a deep descending intro that has a spacey sound, flanging around in the dark, and really ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
