Mr Big Stuff/Why I Keep Living These Memories

7-inch (Item 16687) Stax, Early 70s — Condition: 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!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a Stax sleeve, with some pen, including jukebox strips.)

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.

A later Stax single that offers up a side apiece by each of these obscure 70s groups on the label! Both sides are nice – possibly the best cuts by the groups – with a funky style that's kind of in the mode of The Emotions from the early 70s. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Atco, Late 60s. Very Good
"Memphis Soul Stew" is one of King Curtis' best-ever tracks, with a deep bassy groove, cool spoken bits, and a tight funky drum sound all the way through. Great stuff – and the kind of funky "hit" that we still dig year after year! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Zodiac, Early 70s. Very Good
A very deep, very hard soul single! Big strings grace the dope groove of the intro, and give the whole thing sort of a Blacksploitation feel, then Chuck Bernard kicks in with soulful vocals, on a nice Chicago thing that's got sort of an early Leroy Hutson feel. 7-inch, Vinyl record
