Doing It To Death/Everybody Got Soul

7-inch (Item 2509) People, 1973 — Condition: 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 tight! Original People single, and you'll never find a louder version!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Red label 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.

People, 1972. Near Mint-
What more can we say? Beautiful funky classics, back to back, on an original People label single! "Hot Pants Road" is a killer cut, with a non-stop groove, and "Pass The Peas" was once in the running for the eighties most-sampled cut! 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1972. Very Good+
Little did the JBs know when they penned the lyrics "Givin Up Food For Funk" that they'd create an anthem for Dusty Groove customers! Still, who can resist skipping a meal for a track as delightfully funky as this! 7-inch, Vinyl record

E Parker McDougal

Bitter Lemon/Foxxy Minor
Grits, 1974. Very Good+
Two sides of straight soul bop by this Chicago tenor legend from the south side! This is the kind of jazz that still gets played in tiny lounges all over the city – not cutting edge, or totally funky, but with a nice deep bottom, and a lot of soul. A great peek at a lost tradition in ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Blue Note, 1975. Very Good
A classic from Donald Byrd – a wonderful number done in collaboration with Larry Mizell – and a mad mix of Latin and jazz funk grooving! Simply sublime – with a soulful feel that grabs you from the first note! 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Good+
Tight tight tight choppy choppy choppy and funky funky funky! An undisputed classic, with a riff so fast you'd think it was played by a machine! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alvin Cash & The Scott Bros Orchestra

Keep On Dancing (voc, inst)
Toddlin Town, Late 60s. Very Good-
One of Alvin's funkiest tracks ever, and a killer groove put together at the end of the 60's with the funky Scott Brothers Orchestra backing him up. The track's got a razor-sharp guitar that chops through the whole thing with amazing precision – and the instrumental side has some nice funky ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Golden Ear, 1973. Very Good-
Beautiful! "Fool Like Me" has everything you'd want in a sweet soul track from the 70's: a nice spoken intro, cool spacey production (by James VanLeer), and a very nice track about heartbreak and shame. Great stuff, and a track that should have been more of a classic! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tito Puente

Fat Mama/Work Song
Tico, Late 60s. Very Good+
Despite his proclaimed hatred of the Latin Soul genre, Tito Puente managed to score big with "Fat Mama", this tight little groover that has a totally catchy boogaloo riff. "Work Song" is a nice soulful Latin version of the Nat Adderley hit, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Karen, Late 60s. Very Good-
This is the reason you buy rare soul singles! "Almost" is one of the best 45-only soul tracks we've ever heard. It's got fantastic vocals, amazing production, and a hook that just won't quit. Jimmy's a really incredible singer, and Detroit genius Ollie McLaughlin produced the track ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good-
Two funky groovers from Johnny C! "Cool Broadway" takes up where "Funky Broadway" left off – dancing along at a similar beat, but slightly more restrained, or "cool", if you will. "Hitch It" vamps along in that Cliff Nobles "Horse" groove ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atco, Late 60s. Very Good-
A great little number from Arthur Conley! "Funky Street" isn't really funk, as you'd expect – but it is an excellent hard soul number that's one of Art's best cuts from the time. It's propelled by some very tasty drums, and has a strong party groove that really pushes his vocals! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
