Finger Poppin Time/I Love You, I Love You So-o-o

7-inch (Item 22349) King, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good

This is Hank's first version of the track, not the one produced by James Brown. That doesn't stop it from being nice and soulful, though – with a great rolling R&B groove that made it one of his best early moments! Killer vocals on both sides, too!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label King pressing.)

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.

King, Early 70s. Very Good+
2 great raw R&B numbers from Hank Ballard. "Which Way Should I Turn" is a blues drenched ballad, with a raspy King groove churning underneath, and "Funky Soul Train" is a raw blast of R&B shout that doesn't quite deliver the hardcore funk you'd expect from the title, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Very Good+
An incredible track! Hank plays it super-hip by shouting "How you gonna get respect if you ain't cut your process yet!" And while his comments on African-American hairstyles may not have the same power as some of James Brown's political messages – the track's hard raw storming ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Good+
An undisputed groover! The track's a killer uptempo one from James' later years on King – and it's got this amazing beat that snaps along at a full deep stride. Very nice stuff, and the kind of tight grooving that would show up later in his work with the JBs – done here earlier, with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hidehiko Matsumoto/Franco Ferrara

Il Ferroviere/Lullaby Of The Leaves
King (Japan), Mid 60s. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A really cool 7" single from Japan – with a stunning version of "Lullaby Of The Leaves" played by Sleepy Matsumoto on tenor with a small combo that includes organ! The other side features a straighter take on the theme of the film. 7-inch, Vinyl record

... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Event, 1973. Near Mint-
A great funky instrumental, with lots of moog in it – a little like "Popcorn", but funkier! "Pinch Of Salt" is pretty nice too – uptempo and instrumental, with a nice dose of organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Wes Wells & The Steelers

It Must Be Love/From The Top of My Heart
Torrid, Late 60s. Near Mint-
The Steelers were one of the best harmony groups to ever come out of Chicago, and although they never broke as big as some of their east coast counterparts, they cut some pretty darn nice singles in their day – including this one! The record's arranged by the great Floyd Morris, and the cut ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Newmiss, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Sublime stuff! "I Don't Know" is a great deep soul harmony cut – rolling into a midtempo groove from the intro like a rare Stax gem, with some great guitar and organ riffing along with the vocals, which are sung in a mode that's raspy and sweet at the same time! "Look What ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
