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!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(With jukebox strip.)

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.

Stax, 1969. Near Mint-
A funky classic! "Funky Chicken" needs no introduction – as it's chirping guitar grooves and heavy soul vocals are well known to any fan of funk. "Turn Your Damper Down" is a nice little funk tune too – not as hard and heavy, but still pretty nice. 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
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good+
Nice funk from Rufus! Even though he was a bit old by this point, he could still put together a track nicely – and this one's got nicely compressed horns, and a good hook that's shouted by Rufus! 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
Stax, Early 70s. Good
Sublime soul from The Soul Children! "Tighten Up My Thang" is a great Isaac Hayes/David Porter number – done here with a descending horn intro that really cooks the track nicely, and before the vocals even come in! "Take Up The Slack" is another Hayes/Porter killer ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Stax, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Of all the "tramp" songs of the 60s, this funky duet by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas is certainly the best! It sounds great on this nice original 45, and it's backed by another duet that you'll certain recognize. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Booker T & The MGs

Soul Limbo/Heads Or Tails
Stax, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Nice original single that features the MG's hit "Soul Limbo" on one side, and the groovy instrumental "Heads Or Tails" on the other. "Soul Limbo" is a slightly Caribbean track from Booker T and the combo – one that snaps along with a brightly pulsating groove ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
