Fiddle Sticks/Happy Week End

7-inch (Item 1509) Chess, Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Stompin organ work from the great Baby Cortez! "Fiddle Sticks" is a lot harder than Dave's earlier hits – with some really searing Hammond, and a tone that almost sets your platter on fire! There's lots of raspy guitar backing him up – kind of chugging in an R&Bish mode! "Happy Weekend" is a romping groover too – rolling almost in a Bo Diddley mode, with Dave burning the organ over the top!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow & red label pressing. Label on "Fiddle Sticks" is clipped at the bottom.)

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.

Andre Williams

Stroke/Cadillac Jack
Chess/Blue Chip, Late 60s/1970s. Near Mint-
Funky late 60s work from the great Andre Williams – reissued here on a Chess Blue Chip pressing from the 70s! "The Stroke" is one of Andre's greatest numbers – a slapping funky groover with twangy guitar over bass over drums, all supporting a groove that's got Andre talking ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Chess, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
2 fantastic tracks from Etta James – both of them raw and bluesy, but also sophisticatedly soulful! "At Last" is one of her all-time greats, a sweetly done number that always breaks our heart, set to impeccable arrangements that show that Etta can move from the rough R&B crowd ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Chess, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Wonderful Chicago soul from The Dells! "There Is" is a strident Charles Stepney track, with insane production, and a hook that just won't quit! "O-O, I Love You" is much more in their older harmony style, and has a very classic group sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

South Shore Commission

Free Man (orig, disco mix)
Wand, 1975. Near Mint-
A bona-fide club classic – and the standout classic of the South Shore Commission! The tune's got a stepping soulful approach that's early Philly club at its best – the early days of disco, when there was still plenty of soul in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Roxbury, 1974. Near Mint-
A classic if there ever was one – a seminal 70s soul track, covered by many, and featuring the classic "diamond in the back" line! Sad thing is, everyone always thinks it's Curtis Mayfield – but it's William, and even better than Curtis! Part 2 is a nice instrumental ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
