One of the undisputed funky monsters of all time! You've heard it for years, but you can't beat the sheer raw power of this 45 – especially on the lesser-known part 2! The cut's a non-stop groover, with some of the most righteous funky playing you'll ever hear!  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A very early Scepter single by Dionne Warwick – so early that the label put "This Empty Place" on the a-side, even though "Wishin & Hopin" went onto be the hit! "Empty Place" has a fuller sound than the usual Warwick mode – still in a Bacharach & ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Payback (parts 1 & 2)
Polydor, 1973. Very Good
One of James Brown's greatest cuts ever – a stone funky monster that never gets old! The tune's got a snapping slow funk beat that's simply incredible, and it builds and builds with a sound that has an intensity that can't be beat! Plus, this 2-part single is actually pretty tough to find ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1975. Very Good+
Lots of "Sex Machine" here! The cut's a mid 70s remake of the classic James Brown tune – offered up here with 2 parts, and stretching out for a groove that's over 10 minutes long! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sister James/Clair De Lune (In Jazz)
A&M, 1973. Near Mint-
"Sister James" is a nice 70s crime jazz instrumental, with a good tenor solo by Nino, and production that's better than any of his other records from the time. "Clair De Lune" is a jazzy take on Debussy's famous composition. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great later work from The Ideals – cut a few years after their "Gorilla" fame, with some great backings by Monk Higgins! "You Lost" has a romping groove with plenty of Higgins touches – and although the vocals are a bit old-styled, they have plenty of great twists ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
I Got The Number (voc, inst)
Number Nine (Germany), 2007. Near Mint-
A great bit of old school hip hop – served up with plenty of funky 45 touches! Fresh Mark have a relation to some of the recent work coming out from Tramp Records – and although the style here is hip hop, circa 1982, the overall presentation has plenty of deep funk spirit! Drums are ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
MoSoul, Late 60s. Very Good
A thunderous funky instrumental – moving at half speed with a dark sinister sound, and kind of a wall of sound piano/guitar groove that's cut through with some very slick tenor work! Tasty stuff, with a stoned LA 60s funk sound to it! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Calla, 1975. Near Mint-
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1972. Very Good
An oft-forgotten funky classic from James! The track's a monster – with this wah-wah beat that's flanged all over the place, yet is still as tight as a pair of pants with a 26 inch waist! The groove is prime JBs early 70s – and James is shoutin and callin the groove over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good
"Groove Into It" is kind of a wild uptempo soul cut penned by Lalo Schifrin, and is listed on the label as being from the film "Pussycat, Pussycat I Love You", which we've never heard of. "Let It Be" is a soulful version of the Beatles big hit. Both sides are from ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Good
"Give It Up Or Turnit Loose" is far and away one of the best James Brown singles of all times! The bassline on the intro is amazing – one of those moments where you sit up and go "DANG! That sound is incredible!" – good reason why the cut's been sampled countless ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
