Love Fantasy (double a-side single)

12-inch (Item 27241) Polydor, 1980 — Condition: Very Good+
$3.99 ...

12-inch, Vinyl record

(€3.30 || £2.93 || ¥442) (approx.)

A great track from Roy Ayers – and one that's often overlooked! The cut's a smooth mellow stepper, with a nice jazzy vibe, and a wonderful monologue from Roy at the beginning (he's trying to pick up a girl). The cut got kind of buried on the Love Fantasy LP – so it's extra nice to have on this rare original promo single! (White label promo in a Polydor sleeve.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Uno Melodic, 1982. Very Good+
A nice jazzy groover from Roy – lifted off his Uno Melodic LP, and offered here in long and short versions! The track's kind of up there with some of Roy's nice dancefloor tracks from the late 70s on Polydor – and it's one of the few 12" singles you'll ever find by him! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Philadelphia International, 1979. Good+
"You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else" is one of the all-time great tracks by Philly International's best girl group – and it's served up here in a special disco mix, which runs for a full 8 minutes! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Chocolate City, 1975. Very Good
A rare promo single featuring "Rigor Mortis" – one of Cameo's best tracks ever! The cut's got a funk vamp on the intro that you'll recognize from sampling instantly – and the whole thing's a nicely compressed joint with a full-on sound that the band rarely ever duplicated! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Goldmine/Phiss Phizz
Philadelphia International, 1979. Near Mint-
Clubby work from Edwin Birdsong – with a funky groove that's a lot like Roy Ayers' work from the time! "Goldmine" is presented here in a nice long version – jazzily grooving over warm bassy-beats, picking up speed with some righteous party type lyrics sung by the group on the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, 1979. Very Good-
What can we say? This is a classic! The track has a monster roller skating groove that's been sampled more than a few times over the years – but which still sounds incredible on its own! Both parts are great – and even though the single's pretty darn long, you still never want it to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Festival, 1977. Near Mint-
"Mary Hartman" is a nice instrumental disco number – based on the theme to the odd little TV show from the 70s. "Pinada" is funkier – with some nice guitar at the beginning, which then steps into a punchy Latin-tinged number – still a bit clubby, but with more ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A&M, 1989. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Off the Rhythm Nation LP, remixed by Shep Pettibone. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Rhythmic (UK), 1985. Very Good- (pic cover)
A crossover electro-era groover in the best Kraftwerk mode – one of those European imports that somehow managed to crack the US dancefloors strongly in the Danceteria days. Vocals are a bit cold, but in a good way – one that works with all the electro beats and keys! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 1984. Very Good+
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Bad Boy, 1995. Near Mint-
Both the Puff Daddy & Ali Shaheed Muhamed mixes of this Faith Evans track hit hard, Puff Daddy's in the mid '90's hot radio style that blew him up so large and Muhamed's with that smooth Tribe vibe. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Emerald International, 1982. Near Mint-
A nice lost bit of late Philly soul – produced by Norman Harris! This solid mid tempo groover pops along nicely with a very 80s groove vibe, a tight little club soul cut you'll never tire of! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Emergency, 1984. Near Mint-
A catchy little groover from Shannon – with some nice electro touches, and the same approach to a hook that you'll recognize from "Let The Music Play"! 12-inch, Vinyl record
