Greatest Hits

LP (Item 25144) United Artists, Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

A monster set of Chicano funky grooves from LA – most of which forever transformed the sound of funk! The album includes most of the band's best cuts – like "Slippin Into Darkness", "Cisco Kid", "World Is A Ghetto", "All Day Music", "Me & Baby Brother", "Why Can't We Be Friends", and "Low Rider". Some tracks are in shorter 45 edits, but that only means you'll get more music in the long run!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole and some light stains.)

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.

Gerri Granger

Add A Little Love
United Artists, 1972. Very Good
Righteous soul from Geri Granger – an album recorded with kind of a rootsy, churchy feel – probably more aimed at the college kids than the mainstream soul audience of the early 70s. The whole thing's fine overall – just maybe a bit too righteously rocking for its own good. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack

Safety Zone
United Artists, 1975. Very Good+

Jon Lucien

Song For My Lady
Columbia, 1975. Very Good-
Excellent jazzy soul stuff by one of our favorite singers of all time! Jon's in wonderful form here – working in arrangements that are a bit smoother and more modern soul oriented than his earlier work for RCA, but handled in such a way that they only bring out more richness in his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bohannon

Insides Out
Dakar, 1974. Very Good-
A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual! Although most of Bohannon's work from the time is up-tempo and funky, side two of this album has some amazing slow spacey cuts – done with a drum sound that's still quite hard, but just slower than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Anglo Saxon Brown

Songs For Evolution
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good
Tremendous work from Anglo Saxon Brown – a Philly group who started out their recording career as Ujima on Epic, where they issued a handful of well-remembered singles – then changed their name and cut this one and only full length set for Atlantic! The album's a stunner all the way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mandrill
Polydor, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
A masterpiece of freeform funk from Mandrill – New York group at the start of the 70s, but one who work here with the best longform jamming styles of the Bay Area scene! The combo draw equal influence from jazz, funk, soul, and Latin – using all elements in a unique hybrid that's all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good-
A key set of early work from Betty Everett – and a great document of the strength of her early soul on Vee Jay!

Feelin Good
Motown, Late 60s. Very Good
Heavenly heavenly soul from one of the best voices in the Motown stable – the mighty David Ruffin, heard here at the height of his early solo powers!
