Do The Funky Penguin (Parts 1 & 2)

7-inch (Item 1698) Stax, 1971 — Condition: Very Good

Funky funky Rufus! This one's a monster – with great drums, rolling bass, and riffing guitar that scratches up the whole dark track to keep it nice and funky! Rufus' vocals hardly get in the way, and the cut's one of his funkiest ever!  © 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.

Booker T & The MGs

Hip Hug Her/Summertime
Stax, Mid 60s. Very Good-
Two tasty ones from Booker! "Hip Hug Her" is one of Book's funkiest classics – a heck of a number with a jagged groove, sampled often, familiar enough, but still freshly funky! "Summertime" is a great mellow version of the classic – played in a slow bubbling mode ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, Early 70s. Near Mint-
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
RCA, 1975. Near Mint-
Killer funk! "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" is a great lost 70's funk track, with a slow loping groove, and a tight choppy hook that just crawls along nicely! One of the best cuts ever by this New Orleans band – and always a treat! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Desmond Dekker & The Aces

Problems/It Mek
Uni, Late 60s. Near Mint-
2 nice ones from Desmond's late 60's LP for Uni. Very spare rocksteady groove, with spooky lilting vocals, sweet bubbling organ, and a choppy guitar rhythm throughout. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sylvia & The Moments

Sho Nuff Boogie (parts 1 & 2)
All Platinum, 1974. Near Mint-
A great little track from Sylvia and the biggest group on her label! The track has a wonderfully sexy vocal feel – and it chugs along in a good mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, in the same basic groove as Sylvia's "Sweet Stuff" single – which is a nice spare drum- ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Alithia, 1974. Near Mint-
Barbara Jean English was one of the more diverse singers on the east coast scene of the 70s – and this single is proof of her range. "Breakin Up" is an uptempo track with kind of a polished club feel – but we like "Guess Who?" a lot better, as it's a great sweet ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CTI/A&M, Late 60s. Very Good-
Fantastic funk from Nat! "Calling Out Loud" has these stepping bass and electric piano parts that are just great, with wailing flute that bursts out into a full trumpet solo from Nat – really tasty, and stretching for the funky clouds! "Biafra Haifa" is more moody and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Philips, Late 60s. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A fantastic solo single from Frankie Valli – with an excellent stomping midtempo groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Philips, Late 60s. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A stunningly groovy remake of "I've Got You Under My Skin" – and the flipside is pretty great too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
