Tell Me What'Cha Gonna Do (When You Want To Be Loved) (mono, stereo)

7-inch (Item 183304) Wand, 1974 — Condition: Very Good
"Tell Me What'cha Gonna Do" is one of the General's best sweet soul cuts – a slow-building number with falsetto soul at the start, and a deeper approach as the track builds and builds in a style that reminds us a bit of the Soul Children.  © 1996-2024, 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.

Wand, 1973. Very Good+
Later work by General Crook – very different than his funkier sides of the 60s, but still pretty darn great! "Best Years Of My Life" is a wonderful ballad cut – strings gently gliding as Crook's rich vocals come into deliver a sweet and sad lyric. "Testification" ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Down To Earth, 1971. Very Good+
A funky classic from this lost Chicago soul artist! "Get Over" has nice tight backing, with a raw James Brown-esque sound, courtesy of Burgess Gardner. A nice one from the old days, and the flip's pretty keen, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Enterprise, 1971. Very Good+
Common, yes, but it's still a classic, and an original 45 with two great cuts from the soundtrack! "Shaft" is that track that you've heard a million times – but which is still an undeniable funky pleasure year after year. "Cafe Reggios" is a smooth guitar-based ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Pye, 1975. Very Good+
2 nice mellow cuts by 9th Creation – very different than their funk work, but still pretty great! "Sexy Girl" is our favorite here – as the tune's got a warm harmony sound, a nice jaunty groove, and a hook that keeps on going long over the cut's gone. A great east coast-y ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
