Doing It For Us/Another Day

7-inch (Item 2752) Bandit, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good

Two sides of early seventies sweet soul, by this lost group from Chicago! "Doing It For Us" has a male vocal lead banking over strings – grooving with a nice midtempo punch and a bit of a Curtom production style. "Another Day" has a mellower approach – but still great, with a righteous harmony approach that should have made the group bigger than they were!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Blue Note, 1975. Very Good
A classic from Donald Byrd – a wonderful number done in collaboration with Larry Mizell – and a mad mix of Latin and jazz funk grooving! Simply sublime – with a soulful feel that grabs you from the first note! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Paula, Early 70s. Very Good+
We love the Montclairs! They were one of the best harmony groups of the early 70s, and they had a nice super-dope style that made their material sound a bit heavier than some of their contemporaries. Both tracks on this one are nice, and feature arrangements by Phil Perry. 7-inch, Vinyl record

E Parker McDougal

Bitter Lemon/Foxxy Minor
Grits, 1974. Very Good+
Two sides of straight soul bop by this Chicago tenor legend from the south side! This is the kind of jazz that still gets played in tiny lounges all over the city – not cutting edge, or totally funky, but with a nice deep bottom, and a lot of soul. A great peek at a lost tradition in ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Good+
Tight tight tight choppy choppy choppy and funky funky funky! An undisputed classic, with a riff so fast you'd think it was played by a machine! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Dot, Early 60s. Very Good+
His biggest hit, and a monster early southern soul track! The b-side's a classic too, and this single's a treat to have because Arthur's other vinyl is so hard to find! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good-
Great stuff from this hip Chicago girl singer! "Mama Didn't Lie" is a sweet little number that's gone onto live forever – a sweet late nite cut with a mellow sound that's a perfect fit for Jan's honest vocals. "Lovers" is not bad, too – with a rolling bongo groove ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alvin Cash & The Scott Bros Orchestra

Keep On Dancing (voc, inst)
Toddlin Town, Late 60s. Very Good-
One of Alvin's funkiest tracks ever, and a killer groove put together at the end of the 60's with the funky Scott Brothers Orchestra backing him up. The track's got a razor-sharp guitar that chops through the whole thing with amazing precision – and the instrumental side has some nice funky ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Golden Ear, 1973. Very Good-
Beautiful! "Fool Like Me" has everything you'd want in a sweet soul track from the 70's: a nice spoken intro, cool spacey production (by James VanLeer), and a very nice track about heartbreak and shame. Great stuff, and a track that should have been more of a classic! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tito Puente

Fat Mama/Work Song
Tico, Late 60s. Very Good+
Despite his proclaimed hatred of the Latin Soul genre, Tito Puente managed to score big with "Fat Mama", this tight little groover that has a totally catchy boogaloo riff. "Work Song" is a nice soulful Latin version of the Nat Adderley hit, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Enjoy, Early 60s. Good
2 sides of hard wailing sax instrumentals, played by King Curtis before he softened it up a bit for Atlantic. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Akim & The Teddy Van Production Comp

Santa Claus Is A Black Man/A Natural Santa
Simtone, 1973. Near Mint-
A wild one from the Chicago scene of the early 70s! The track features little kid vocals, over production music quality backing tracks from the Teddy Vann Production Company – with a holiday Black Consciousness sort of message. Maybe not the funkiest Christmas record you'll come across, but ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Reprise, 1976. Very Good+ (pic cover)
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
