Jan Jan/Girl From Kenya

7-inch (Item 12346) Moira, Early 70s — Condition: Good+

Monster funk – and one of the all-time great funky 45s! "Jan Jan" has this sinister mix of horns and organ that's never been duplicated again – one that pounds away for a very unique intro, before guitar twangs in and sets the whole thing rocking! "Girl From Kenya" is a great cut too – with a funky sound all the way through, and a lyric that sings "here she comes with the funky doo!"  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original yellow label pressing without Atlantic info. Plays with some noise and the occasional crackle.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Two of Horace's best late 60s groovers – both done with a hard-rolling soul jazz approach! "Psychedelic Sally" is particularly nice – with a strutting little hook that made the track one of the bigger Blue Notes of the time! 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
King, Early 60s. Very Good
This is Hank's first version of the track, not the one produced by James Brown. That doesn't stop it from being nice and soulful, though – with a great rolling R&B groove that made it one of his best early moments! Killer vocals on both sides, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The Count takes on some 60s soul numbers – and the results are great! "Green Onions" is done here with piano instead of organ – over a slow-stepping, very sly groove that's got a real Soul Cargo sort of feel! 7-inch, Vinyl record
