Vamp/Let Me Love You

7-inch (Item 1341) Daran, Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

Excellent trippy instrumentals from Chicago! "The Vamp" has some great chromatic guitar – a bit like Cal Green, with touches of Wes Montgomery – over a hard rolling organ on the beat groove. Tasty stuff – the kind of single that would blow the speakers off your jukebox, if you let it! "Let Me Love You" has more of that great guitar and organ – a bit dreamier, but still pretty damn nice!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Money, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Don't know much about Delilah, but this is a great little single with a really sweet feel! "Wrapped Up" is a lightly lilting number, but Delilah sings it with a deep touch of soul on her vocals – breaking at just the right points to make us believe all the sweetness of the lyrics. ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Perception, 1973. Very Good+
One of their all time funky classics, with that great hard choppy funk groove that was virutally the patented trademark of this great group before they hit their weaker disco years. "Soul Man" is a funky cover of the Sam & Dave hit. 7-inch, Vinyl record

James Brown

I Cried/World Part 2
King, Late 60s. Very Good+
Obscure late 60s work by James. "I Cried" is a beautiful tear-jerker that has James' soulful vocals backed by a chorus of lovelies, and some arrangements by Dave Matthews. The flip is the part 2 to "World", a nice track with a positive progressive message – and a very ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
MGM, 1973. Very Good
Amazing vocal soul from one of the greatest groups of the south! This record captures the Ovations in their Sam Cooke-sounding phase – when they were producing excellent sweet soul with a righteous airy sound, almost like the maestro himself. The style manifests itself a bit too obviously ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby Powell

Thank You/CC Rider
Excello, 1973. Very Good+
"Thank You" is a jaunty southern number by Bobby, with a midtempo groove and kind of a catchy hook. "CC Rider" is done in a great style, without the cliches that you hear on most other versions. 7-inch, Vinyl record
MGM, 1975. Very Good
One of the best solos singles by Johnny Bristol! "Love Takes Tears" is an excellent mellow soul number – built around a groove that's almost like "Love's Theme" by Barry White, but graced with warm vocals by Johnny that give the tune a very catchy hook! "Go On & ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Harlem River Drive

Need You/Overtime
Arista, 1975. Very Good+
Hmmm....we're not sure if this is the same Harlem River Drive that recorded with Eddie Palmieri, but we've got to assume that they are, as we can't imagine 2 bands using the same name at the same time, and both apparently from New York. "Need You" has also got a sound that's kind of a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
