I Need You Baby/Home At Last

7-inch (Item 23686) Zea, Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

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 number.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. Label has a small sticker.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

20th Century, Late 60s. Very Good
Sublime soul from one of the most under-recognized singers of all time! "Bring My Baby Back" is a different tune than the hit of the same name – sung by Jesse in a light, yet soulful vocal style that's really tremendous. "Thank You Darlin" is even greater – coming ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Volt, 1969. Very Good
Two great tracks from the "Blind Alley" era! "So I Can Love You" has a fantastic sound – with these slow funky beats underneath a madly riffing organ, dipping and turning as the girls' vocals come in to sweeten up the whole thing! "Got To Be The Man" has a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Johnny Lytle

Loop/Hot Sauce
Tuba, 1966. Very Good
Two killer cuts from the great Johnny Lytle! Funky vibes and organ mix together in a nice groovy steppers sound that still rings out in clubs on the south side of Chicago! Killer stuff – and on the rare Tuba label! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Majestic Arrows

Doing It For Us/Another Day
Bandit, Early 70s. Very Good
Two sides of early seventies sweet soul, by this lost group from Chicago! "Doing It For Us" has a male vocal lead banking over strings – grooving with a nice midtempo punch and a bit of a Curtom production style. "Another Day" has a mellower approach – but still ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1973. Very Good
2 killers by the JBs! "Doing It To Death" is one of their best tracks from the early days – with a funky riffing sound you'll know immediately. "Everybody Got Soul" is an excellent party track with a great Maceo solo – lots of grooves, and the band is tight tight ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Althia, 1973. Very Good
Wonderful soul from this excellent east coast group! "Look Over Your Shoulder" is the group's version of the O'Jays' hit – and we like it better than the original, because it's a bit rawer, and almost a bit more honest. "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" is pretty darn nice, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Shama, Late 60s. Very Good+
An excellent 2-part Chicago instrumental, with a cool descending organ line, and a very tight feel throughout! Part 2 has some shouted vocals ("sock it to me") by The Sequins, and the whole thing was written by Syl Johnson and Jo Armstead. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1972. Very Good
2 of James Brown's best duets – on one original funky 45! "What My Baby Needs Now" is a sweet soul groove, with a nice swinging midtempo pace. "This Guy-Girl" is probably the most soulful version of the Bacharach track you'll ever hear! Both sides nice, and not on any ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Thomas, Early 70s. Very Good+
2 great funky cuts by this lost Chicago soul artist who's best known for these Thomas/Curtom recordings from the early 70s. "I Got A Problem" has a nice funky guitar line at the intro, and "Mighty Mighty" is a good cover of the Impressions hit, with a great hard soul sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Crajon, 1974. Very Good
Two very nice, very heavy soul cuts! "Give Me Some Sugar" is a sweet mellow ballad, with Duke singing high lead vocals, with backing by a group on the choruses. He's got a nice soul sound, and the cut's a simple one, but has a really great raw harmony sound. The flipside's even nuttier ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Parliaments

Time/Good Old Music
Revilot, Late 60s. Very Good-
Fantastic early work from George Clinton! "Time" is classic late 60s Parliaments – with a fuzzy Detroit soul sound that shows a lot of Clinton's psychedelic influences. "Good Old Music" is even better though – and is a monster funky number that begins with a stone ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
