Why Can't We Be Friends?

LP (Item 12552) United Artists, 1975 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

One of the biggest albums in War's career! The record includes the classic cut "Low Rider" – a hard-rolling Chicano funk number that's probably been their biggest legacy to day – plus the mellow reggae-tinged title cut, a huge AM radio hit back in the day. Other tracks include "Lotus Blossom", "Smile Happy", "So", and the extended "Leroy's Latin Lament". Also includes the funky cut "Heartbeat"! (Cover has a cutout hole, light wear, and remnants of a sticker.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Galaxy
MCA, 1977. Very Good+
A nice later effort from War – one that really has them grooving in a great way! If you never got past the first two tracks on side one – "Galaxy" and "Baby Face" – you might imagine this album's just a middle of the road attempt to move in on the disco sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

War
United Artists, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
War's first LP without Eric Burdon – and although not the mega-hit that following LPs would be, still a pretty great blend of styles that firmly shows the group's unique vision. War are hitting hard with that soulful LA funk sound – a blend of funky jazz, Latin, and other elements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Good To See You
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Sealed
Sophisticated soul from the great Walter Jackson – one of the best voices ever to come out of the Chicago soul scene, and a wonderful interpreter of just about any material! The record's got some wonderful arrangements by Riley Hampton – who worked with Jackson on his earlier sessions ... LP, Vinyl record album

Anticipation
United Artists, 1976. Very Good
Mid 70's album of funky soul tracks cut by ex-Gator Willie Tee, with a number of other members of the Gators, for United Artists. Don't go thinking that it's raw New Orleans soul, though, because the sound is a lot more polished, with more of a 70's modern groove to it. Willie's still got some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shades In Creation
Turbo, 1977. Near Mint-
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1965. Very Good-
Here's where things really started getting interesting for James Brown! The album was issued right around the same time as James' single "Out Of Sight" on Smash – and like that track, "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" was one of the first to use that "instruments on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
