I Wanna Get Funky

LP (Item 1428) Stax, 1973 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Albert King hardly has to make the statement in the title – as the record's plenty funky throughout, and has that great mix of blues with hipper 70s styles that you'd find in his best material for Stax Records! King's at the core, both on vocals and guitar – but the set also features some nice larger arrangements, and work by The Bar-Kays, Movement, and Memphis Horns – who help give the record a sweet Stax Records vibe, and a great setting for Albert to work in. Even Hot Buttered Soul provide a bit of backing vocals at points – and titles include "Cross Cut Saw", "Flat Tire", "I Wanna Get Funky", "Playing On Me", "Til My Back Ain't Go No Bone", and "Travelin Man". (80s pressing. Cover has marker on both sides & a promo stamp. Labels have some marker.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Born Under A Bad Sign
Stax, 1967. Near Mint-
One of THE electric blues records of the 60s – a seminal set by Albert King that was probably blasted out of more college dorm rooms than southside juke joints, but which still more than deserves its due!

Stax, 1973. Very Good+
No waiting here – as Little Milton's guitar is plenty sweet throughout – making the album a key cooker from his classic years on Stax!

A great Japanese collection of 60s southern blues from The Carter Brothers!
