It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next To Me/I Never Thought I'd Fall In Love With You

12-inch (Item 27396) 20th Century, 1977 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

12-inch


A funky funky thumper from Barry White – and one of his last truly genius tracks! "Ecstasy" is presented here in a long long version that lets the tune's initial bass and drum interplay stretch out magnificently – sliding and slinking along in a classic White-styled groove, as strings soar into the mix and build the whole thing up before Barry's vocals come in and send it on home!

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.

Theme From King Kong/Blues Concerto
20th Century, 1976. Very Good
A great one! "Theme From King Kong" is a killer cut – one of the last really funky numbers that Barry White cut in the 70s, with a bouncing rolling bassline that's just great, stepping and changing a lot before the rest of the groove comes in to take the single home! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Personal, 1983. Good+ (pic cover)
The great electro classic – and one that will make you pop so much your shoulders will get sore! The single features the long "Din Daa Daa remix" – with lots of nice parts that drop out, and have the chorus popping out with great isolated sound. Also features the dub mix, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1977. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Doobie-doo doobie-doo! One of the catchiest Roy Ayers dancefloor tracks ever – a bassy bumping thumper that wonderfully skirts the line between clubby and funky! The track's got female vocals singing along with the hook – all in a mode that's quite similar to the most uptempo work by ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kee Wee, 1984. Very Good
One of the rarest records ever cut by the Last Poets – and one that has them standing up to their claim of being the "inventors" of hip hop. The cut begins with lots of electro keyboards, then bounces along in an old school groove straight out of Sugarhill – as Jalal raps ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sire, 1982. Near Mint- (pic cover)
One of Kid Creole's greatest – a track that bounces along with a mad bassline, grooving in a campy 20's sort of way, but with this old school beat that really makes the cut kick. "Annie" and "Corrupt" are both great groovers too – more proof that August Darnell's a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

MIR, Early 80s. Near Mint-
These sides are from the obscure Chicago group Coffee – a club-oriented female trio, in the same vein as First Choice and other famous Philly groups. The tracks have a disco feel and the songs were produced by Clarence Johnson & Riccardo Williams and arranged by Floyd Morris. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sire, 1982. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A great pop groover from the post punk club days – lots of electro bubbling, and a catchy little melody that went onto become the "Popcorn" of the early 80s! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Strictly Rhythm, 1993. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Masters At Work by another name still means deep, soulful underground house tracks. If we remember right, Hardrive was more of a Louie Vega project, though he brings in Kenny Dope on these tracks too, as well as Maurice Joshua for one cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Street Fire, 1984. Good+
Early Chicago house, back in the days when you could really hear the Euro influence on the raw tracks! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atco, 1983. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Genius, pure genius – Trevor Horn's transformation of the overcluttered Yes groove down into a lean, mean bit of bass and funk for the 80s! The whole thing snaps, crackles, and vamps along magnificently – a blueprint for Art Of Noise, and countless other groups to come! The remix is ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MCA, 1979. Good+
A great later groove from Rufus & Chaka – produced with plenty of jazzy Quincy Jones touches, and a warmly skipping sound that has Chaka really taking off vocally! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Def Jam, 1992. Near Mint- (pic cover)
The first single from Pete Nice and Daddy Rich after 3rd Bass split. Production by the Beatnuts makes it worthwhile. 12-inch, Vinyl record
