Misdemeanor/So Close

7-inch (Item 22329) Pride, 1972 — Condition: Very Good
Temporarily Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

❔

What can we say? This is one of the greats! Foster Sylver's "Misdemeanor" is one of the greatest-ever funky tunes from the 70s – made famous years back by a DOC sample, but loved way before that by anyone with a funky set of ears! The cut's got this incredibly strange groove – bass sneaking out a rhythm before the drums, both of them still close enough to make things very very funky – and Foster singing over the top in sweet falsetto soul!  © 1996-2019, 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.

A pretty weird little record from Swedish jazzman Jonas Kullhammar – as you might guess from the image!

"Don't Boom Boom" is a nice little fast funky number – grooving a lot like some of Vicki Anderson's work from the early 70s, tight bass and guitar dancing around some hard soul vocals that are very much in line with the beat! "Signs" is a pretty nice soul track, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Wonderful stuff from an obscure younger singer! Spoonbread was a bit like Jimmie Briscoe or Foster Sylvers – in that he was a kid singing soul with an adult-styled approach. The style really works well on "How Can You Mend" – done here as a gentle sweet-soul version, with a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nice single from Jesse that has him singing in two different soulful styles. We're partial to "I Need You Baby", which is a great harmony-style ballad, recorded with heavenly soul production that's just great. "Home At Last" is pretty good, too, but it's more of a bluesy ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
