What My Baby Needs Now Is A Little More Lovin/This Guy –This Girl's In Love With You

7-inch (Item 16039) Polydor, 1972 — Condition: Very Good
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

2 of James Brown's best duets – on one original funky 45! "What My Baby Needs Now" is a sweet soul groove, with a nice swinging midtempo pace. "This Guy-Girl" is probably the most soulful version of the Bacharach track you'll ever hear! Both sides nice, and not on any album!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Polydor (Germany), Late 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)
"Goodbye My Love" is one of James' ballad soul tracks – not bad overall, sung in a deep soul style that we always like – but the reall killer is "Shades Of Brown", a very groovy organ instrumental that often gets overlooked, and which has a hard-wailing, nice vamping ... 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
Polydor, Mid 70s. Very Good
Funky! This oft-overlooked funky number features James shouting "pick up on this" a few times at the beginning – no instrumentation, just shouted vocals, in a great way that's excellent for dropping into a mix! The groove is in that bouncy style he was using in the 75/76 years, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

James Brown Soul Train

Honky Tonk (parts 1 & 2)
Polydor, 1972. Very Good
An old track – redone as a funky 70s killer from James Brown! The track starts out in a JBs party mode – with some dialogue before the band starts playing, then hitting a "Funky Good Time" groove. Over the top, you'll get some hard raw guitar soloing – very much in the ... 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
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
Janus, 1973. Very Good+
Heavy funk from one of the heaviest funk groups of all time! "Bra" is a stone winner from Cymande – slow sloppy bass on the intro, as horns slide into the groove and the track opens up with some weird flanged-out vocals! "Folk Song" is anything but – a strange ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Dot, Early 60s. Very Good+
His biggest hit, and a monster early southern soul track! The b-side's a classic too, and this single's a treat to have because Arthur's other vinyl is so hard to find! 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1972. Very Good+
What more can we say? Beautiful funky classics, back to back, on an original People label single! "Hot Pants Road" is a killer cut, with a non-stop groove, and "Pass The Peas" was once in the running for the eighties most-sampled cut! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+
A very strange one from Astrud! "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice" is total crap – with her singing along with a little girl – but the flipside is great! "A Banda" has a hard Brazilian percussive groove (you'll recognize the song very quickly), and Astrud sings ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Capitol, 1979. Very Good+
Always-great work from Minnie! "Lover & Friend" begins with a spare piano note, stops, moves again, then the whole band swings into the mix in a nice jazzy feel – Minnie stepping up to the plate with a warm vocal and a nice bounce to her sound. "Return To Forever" is ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
SOUL, 1970. Very Good+
2 beautiful tracks from one of Motown's least-remembered singers! The single's an early one by Yvonne, and we don't think it's on her only LP. The a-side's a nice mellow soul ballad, with this cool fast bongo sound in the background, and stellar vocals from Yvonne that put the whole thing over ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
