There It Goes Again/What's The Use

7-inch (Item 17002) Arden, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record


An underground classic from Chicago! Barbara & The Uniques were one of the city's great under-recorded groups – and they had a sound that's very much in keeping with bigger work on labels like Brunswick. No surprise, though – because Eugene Record wrote "There It Goes", and the cut's got just the right mix of hard soul and uptown swing as some of his work with Barbara Acklin from the time!

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good+
Great stuff! "Wear It On Our Face" is one of their wildest cuts, and starts out with this crazy prepared piano introduction that sounds like it was just lifted from a John Cage record! 7-inch, Vinyl record
St Lawrence, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Classic Chicago soul from Mamie Galore! "It Ain't Necessary" has a rolling party groove that fits Mamie's husky vocal style really well. Monk Higgins is leading the arrangements, and the tracks' got a soaring northern groove that's very nice! "Don't Think" shows off Mamie's ... 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
Barry, Late 60s. Very Good-
Beautiful stuff from Irene Reid – a fantasty raspy voiced soul singer with a style that evokes Dakota Staton and Esther Phillips, arranged here by the great Bert Decoteaux. The a-side is a mellow ballad cut bound to shed a tear or two, and the flip is the Sinatra standard, taken at a nice ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mister Luckee/Ain't That Hateful
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic single from Monk Higgins! "Mister Luckee" is a spare slow hard-grooving single – an organ/sax groover with a slow dance beat that's a bit like "Madison Time" (complete with calls), but pushed over the top by some wild instrumental soloing on organ, and by this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Triple T, 1987. Near Mint-

Savern, Late 60s. Very Good
A sock-soul cut with a really fierce sound! Frankie's vocals are great, but the tune's even better on the flip – where a mad cowbell starts things out in a monster break! That break's worth the record alone – but the whole thing's a mighty mighty burner! 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1973. Very Good
One of the best breakbeat tracks you'll ever find from the JBs! This original single includes parts 1, 2, & 3 of this monster cut from the "Damn Right I Am Somebody" LP – which are more than were on the album version! A classic, and still one of the best cuts ever by the JBs! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Kapp, Late 60s. Very Good
One of those great 60s tunes – with more power than you'd guess from the surface! "Impossible Dream" was a familiar hit from a show, but in the hands of the group, it's transformed into a magical anthem of power and pride – stepping out with a righteous style that's almost ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Lamarr, Late 60s. Very Good
Brilliant non-LP work by the Esquires! Unlike their uptempo hits, this single has a nice slow groove feel, with a sly sexy sound, sort of like the Isley Brothers tracks on early T-neck albums. Excellent Chicago harmony soul, with stellar production by Bill "Bunky" Sheppard. Trust us ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Volt, 1970. Very Good
Double a-side promo of this funky track from the early 70's. Tight Memphis groove by the 2nd incarnation of the Bar-Kays. 7-inch, Vinyl record
