Soul Pride (parts 1 & 2)

7-inch (Item 15650) King, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good-
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

One of James' best instrumental tracks from the late 60s, and a groover that's been sampled more than once! Hard to find in any shape – and this original 45 plays nice and loud!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

King, Late 60s. Good+
An undisputed groover! The track's a killer uptempo one from James' later years on King – and it's got this amazing beat that snaps along at a full deep stride. Very nice stuff, and the kind of tight grooving that would show up later in his work with the JBs – done here earlier, with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1979. Good+
Uptempo funky James from the end of the 70s – aimed at the discos, but with that funky sound of earlier days still pretty much in place! In other words, there's plenty of funky instrumentation in the cuts – a bit faster than in earlier years, but still quite nice – plus ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Good
Both tracks are very nice, and the single is an excellent example of James at his strongest in the 60's. "If I Ruled The World" is a beautiful ballad soul cut, infused with the kind of subtle politics that James used before hitting his more radical days. "I Got The Feelin" has ... 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
King, Early 70s. Very Good+
2 great raw R&B numbers from Hank Ballard. "Which Way Should I Turn" is a blues drenched ballad, with a raspy King groove churning underneath, and "Funky Soul Train" is a raw blast of R&B shout that doesn't quite deliver the hardcore funk you'd expect from the title, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Very Good+
An incredible track! Hank plays it super-hip by shouting "How you gonna get respect if you ain't cut your process yet!" And while his comments on African-American hairstyles may not have the same power as some of James Brown's political messages – the track's hard raw storming ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Il Ferroviere/Lullaby Of The Leaves
King (Japan), Mid 60s. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A really cool 7" single from Japan – with a stunning version of "Lullaby Of The Leaves" played by Sleepy Matsumoto on tenor with a small combo that includes organ! The other side features a straighter take on the theme of the film. 7-inch, Vinyl record

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
