Medley: Can Sing A Rainbow – Love Is Blue/Hallelujah Baby

7-inch (Item 27712) Cadet, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

2 great tracks from the Dells' best years! "I Can Sing A Rainbow" is a righteous semi-political cut that's mixed in a medley with "Love Is Blue", all set to stellar spacey Charles Stepney arrangements, and nice hard drums. "Hallelujah Baby" is a great one, too – with a strong Cadet soul sound that's nice and strident, and filled with none of the cliches you'd expect from the title!  © 1996-2020, 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.

Wonderful Chicago soul from The Dells! "There Is" is a strident Charles Stepney track, with insane production, and a hook that just won't quit! "O-O, I Love You" is much more in their older harmony style, and has a very classic group sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mustang Sally/I Wanna Testify
Minit, Late 60s. Very Good-
2 sweet organ instrumentals from Gene Dozier – a talent who went onto become a great soul arranger, but who was a mighty tight Hammond player in the early days! Both tracks are covers of pop soul tracks, and have a nice instrumental sound, with a good Minit soul groove! 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
Chess, Mid 60s. Very Good-
One of the most incredible pop tracks of the 60s! Billy Stewart's reading of "Summertime" sounds nothing like you've ever heard! The cut has these rolling popping vocals, and a triple-time groove that turns the cut into a dark stormer filled with raw energy. The flipside is very nice, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, 1972. Very Good
Not the classic version of this well-known tune, but a rare funky take from The Coasters – done during their brief late span at King Records! The groove is great – nice and romping, and graced with their excellent vocals – and the whole thing even includes a bit of a funky flute ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
