Hot Pants (parts 1, 2, & 3)

7-inch (Item 16114) People, Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

Killer funky! "Hot Pants" is one of James' pivotal tracks from the early 70s – and as you'll hear on this 3-part version, he'd totally perfected his masterful recording style of endless non-stop party grooves. The band keeps on playing for a very long time, and each part stands as sort of a "snippet" of the full live studio experience!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a Starday-King sleeve.)

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.

King, Late 60s. Very Good-
This is the kind of killer hard soul material that made James' late 60s years so incredible! "There Was a Time" is one of our favorite-ever tracks by him, and it's got a massive kind of soulful energy that's sometimes missing from other tracks at the time. "I Can't Stand ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, Early 70s. Very Good+
A killer early funky track by James and The JBs – and one that has that perfect improvised funk groove that the band was honing at the time. The band vamps in the background with a nice choppy riff – while James raps over the top, goading them on, and driving them onto new funky ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1974. Near Mint-
Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. Even better is "My Thang", a nice hard funky track that's James' ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1973. Good+
2 killers by the JBs! "Doing It To Death" is one of their best tracks from the early days – with a funky riffing sound you'll know immediately. "Everybody Got Soul" is an excellent party track with a great Maceo solo – lots of grooves, and the band is tight tight ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the Young-Holt group's greatest tracks! "Wack Wack" is a stunning little jazzy groover – heavy left hand on the piano, with acoustic bass bouncing along on the groove, all very catchy, and with shouted vocals over the top! Great stuff – and proof that the guys were on ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A classic! "Mr Big Stuff" is Jean's enduring classic – a tight little groover with a hip feminist message, sampled by Schoolly D and others over the years, but equally wonderful on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Some of the more obscure material from Jackie's Chicago years, recorded with Sonny Sanders arrangements, and production by Carl Davis. "I Don't Want To Lose" is a nice loping groover, of the sort that Gene Chandler could handle quite nicely at the same time. The flipside's a bit more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, 1971. Near Mint-
Old school break party in action! From the first note of "The Breakdown", you know you've picked yourself a winner – the kind of funky Rufus Thomas tune that set so many beatheads going back in the mid 80s, and which has none of the hokey sound of some of his weaker work. The ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+
The Count takes on some 60s soul numbers – and the results are great! "Green Onions" is done here with piano instead of organ – over a slow-stepping, very sly groove that's got a real Soul Cargo sort of feel! "Hang On Sloopy" has almost a Ramsey Lewis groove at ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
