Black Superman/Bang The Drum

7-inch (Item 12041) Pye, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

One of our favorite songs when we were kids. This cool "Black Superman" tribute to Muhammad Ali should have been the centerpiece of When We Were Kings. It's got a 70's pop reggae groove, and very goofy lyrics about Mr. Ali.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Inclues a jukebox tab.)

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.

Pye, 1975. Very Good+

Spring, Early 70s. Very Good+
A nice little funky single! The a-side is a simple theme to the band, with kind of stupid lyrics – but "Sumpin Heavy" is a monster instrumental! The cut's got a flanged-out groove, with a slow heavy funk sound, basslines that pile up on each other, and descending horn riffs that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Chess, Mid 60s. Very Good+
One of the greatest voices to ever sing for Chess Records – and that's saying a lot! "Ain't That Love" is a really righteous number – almost gospel in inspiration, but overall very soulfullly styled! "Come Back Baby" is slow and bluesy – another Ray Charles ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
ABC, Early 60s. Very Good+
Two rockin instrumentals with heavy sax and organ work! "Late Date" has a nice creeping feel that's in keeping with the name – a bit R&B-ish, with a good kind of jazz club groove! "Get It" has a lighter touch on the keys, but is still quite nice – with a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

R-Stash (Rasputin Stash)

Booty March (mono, stereo)
Curtom, 1978. Very Good+
A slow and bass-heavy funk number from Rasputin Stash – moving along at a pace that's prefaces much of the early 80s LA bass funk, and done with a sound that's heavier and much more in a Chicago soul vein. There's a solid ensemble approach here – with lots of P-Funk touches, as you ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
