Public Enemy #1 (part one)/My Thang

7-inch (Item 28093) Polydor, 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. Even better is "My Thang", a nice hard funky track that's James' answer to "It's My Thing". It's great how angry he gets when someone else has a big funk hit, and it always seemed like he had to write his own version!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a Polydor sleeve.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

King, Late 60s. Near Mint-
An undisputed groover! The track's a killer uptempo one from James' later years on King – and it's got this amazing beat that snaps along at a full deep stride. Very nice stuff, and the kind of tight grooving that would show up later in his work with the JBs – done here earlier, with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Beautiful soul from The Godfather, recorded in the period immediately after he discovered the choppy choppy guitar riff on the downbeat! Both parts swing hard hard hard, and the band is as tight as a pair of trousers after Thanksgiving! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Duo, Early 70s. Fair
2 rare sides by Jo Ann Garrett – recorded after her album on Chess, with production by Andre Williams! "One Woman" is a sweet, sad ballad – pretty nice, but the real treat here is "Now Girl"! That tune's got a snapping little groove – just a touch of funk ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great little cut that really lives up to its title – a jazzy mambo taken at a nice fast tempo – complete with some excellent percussion, fast-scatting vocals, and this great flute line that comes along in the middle and makes the whole thing really sparkle! The flipside is great too ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sam Dees & Bettye Swann

Storybook Children/Just As Sure
Big Tree, 1975. Very Good
Excellent stuff! We're not sure if this one ever made it to an LP, but it's a fantastic bit of soul by the great Sam Dees, recorded with Bettye Swann as a duet, and with arrangements by Tom Tom 84. Both sides are great, and have the heavenly 70's soul sound that made Sam's one and only Atlantic ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
