Willie Pass The Water/Get Off

7-inch (Item 16702) GRC, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+

Two of the more obscure numbers that Ripple cut at the time of their first album – but both nice! "Willie" is a fast chugging funk number, with the title as the catchy vocal refrain on the chorus. "Get Off" is even better – with fast vamping wah wah guitar, organ rolling in, and lots of horns over the top, in a Wood Brass & Steel kind of mode!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow label "Git Owf" pressing.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Windy C, 1967. Near Mint-
Original Windy C single of this Chicago soul classic, with stellar production by Curtis Mayfield on both sides, and the kind of sound that made the Burke family a legend while the Jackson 5 were still in diapers!

Capitol, 1975. Near Mint-
2 tracks from this sublime 70s harmony group! "Day After Day" has a nice rolling group soul sound, with east coast arrangements by Bert DeCoteaux, and a very catchy hook that grooves more than most of the group's work. "Are You Ready" is even better – a sweeping sweet ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
