Tell Me What'Cha Gonna Do (When You Want To Be Loved)/Reality

7-inch (Item 2569) Wand, 1974 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

"Tell Me What'cha Gonna Do" is one of the General's best sweet soul cuts – a slow-building number with falsetto soul at the start, and a deeper approach as the track builds and builds in a style that reminds us a bit of the Soul Children. "Reality" is funkier – kind of a righteous message cut with some nice electric piano, guitar, and bass – grooving hard until Crook comes in on vocals.  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Wand, Late 60s. Very Good
An excellent soul single! "Send My Baby Back" is a real killer – with a great hook, excellent vocals, and tight production by Lonnie Hewitt, known also to the world as one of Cal Tjader's funkier piano players! "Where's My Baby" is pretty darn great, too – and is ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

I Got The Number (voc, inst)
Number Nine (Germany), 2007. Near Mint-
A great bit of old school hip hop – served up with plenty of funky 45 touches! Fresh Mark have a relation to some of the recent work coming out from Tramp Records – and although the style here is hip hop, circa 1982, the overall presentation has plenty of deep funk spirit! Drums are ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Wand, Mid 60s. Very Good
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
One Der Ful, Late 60s. Very Good+
Two rock-solid tracks from the great Otis Clay! "I'm Satisfied" is a mellow ballad – done in a great Otis Redding kind of style. "I Testify" is even better – a midtempo groover with a sock hard sound, some bluesy riffing, and even a bit of vibes in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sister James/Clair De Lune (In Jazz)
A&M, 1973. Near Mint-
"Sister James" is a nice 70s crime jazz instrumental, with a good tenor solo by Nino, and production that's better than any of his other records from the time. "Clair De Lune" is a jazzy take on Debussy's famous composition. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Something You Got/Baby Take Me
Wand, 1965. Very Good
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A very early Scepter single by Dionne Warwick – so early that the label put "This Empty Place" on the a-side, even though "Wishin & Hopin" went onto be the hit! "Empty Place" has a fuller sound than the usual Warwick mode – still in a Bacharach & ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mister Luckee/Ain't That Hateful
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic single from Monk Higgins! "Mister Luckee" is a spare slow hard-grooving single – an organ/sax groover with a slow dance beat that's a bit like "Madison Time" (complete with calls), but pushed over the top by some wild instrumental soloing on organ, and by this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great later work from The Ideals – cut a few years after their "Gorilla" fame, with some great backings by Monk Higgins! "You Lost" has a romping groove with plenty of Higgins touches – and although the vocals are a bit old-styled, they have plenty of great twists ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
MoSoul, Late 60s. Very Good
A thunderous funky instrumental – moving at half speed with a dark sinister sound, and kind of a wall of sound piano/guitar groove that's cut through with some very slick tenor work! Tasty stuff, with a stoned LA 60s funk sound to it! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1975. Very Good+
Lots of "Sex Machine" here! The cut's a mid 70s remake of the classic James Brown tune – offered up here with 2 parts, and stretching out for a groove that's over 10 minutes long! 7-inch, Vinyl record
