Drop The Bomb

LP (Item 26490) Sugar Hill, 1982 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Probably the best album ever cut by this DC funk group that defined the Go Go sound of the early 80s! The record features tracks that are a bit tighter than usual, with some nice heavy moments, and the occasional nice drumbreak. Titles include "Pump Me Up", "Drop The Bomb", "Get On Up", and "Hey Fellas". (Side 2 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has light wear, some aging, and a small rip at the opening.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

Trouble Over There
Island, 1987. Very Good+
The one group most synonymous with Go Go in a major label effort, from just past their peak in the mid 80s. Like many of the mainstream efforts by Go Go groups, this LP's a bit cleaned up, and features songs in a much shorter format than what makes them work on the indy releases, but the producers ...

In The Mood
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spirit Of The Boogie
De-Lite, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Way more than just a "boogie" album – as you might think from the title – and much more a hard-hitting batch of funky tunes, mixed with some even cooler laidback numbers! The album follows heavily off the style of Wild & Peaceful – mixing together the group's older ... LP, Vinyl record album

Westbound, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold
A blistering little set from Funkadelic – one that features the return of Eddie Hazel's guitar, finely honed to the leaner, more soul-based sound of the group in the mid 70s! The title is prophetic, as the group are really "standing on the verge" here – working hard to ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's A Shame
Pickwick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Not a Motown pressing, but still a good Pickwick issue that contains most of their best cuts from the pre-Atlantic days. Worth it alone for "It's A Shame", but there's also loads of other nice ones, including "Ooh Child", "(She's Gonna Love Me) At Sundown", "Bad, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arch, 1975. Near Mint-
A trio of spiritual out players that features Glenn Howell on bass, voice, and percussion; Roland Young on reeds and percussion; and Aisha Kahil on vocals. A bit spiritual, but also free at times – in a way that strikes a really great balance in the trio! The sound is very spare and wide ... LP, Vinyl record album
