For Goodness Sakes, Take A Look At Those Cakes (parts 1 & 2)

7-inch (Item 29673) Polydor, 1978 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record


A very extended groover from one of James' more club-oriented albums of the late 70s. The track actually manages to retain a good funk sound, even if the groove's a bit more uptempo than on earlier records – and the title chorus is a nice goofy one that's right up there with "Do Fries Go With That Shake?".

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.

King, Early 70s. Very Good
A killer funky number from the late King years – hard, fast, and with an instrumental intensity that's hardly been matched since – and presented here in classic fashion – with 3 parts! 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Near Mint-
"Goodbye My Love" is one of James' ballad soul tracks – not bad overall, sung in a deep soul style that we always like – but the reall killer is "Shades Of Brown", a very groovy organ instrumental that often gets overlooked, and which has a hard-wailing, nice vamping ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Two nice ones! "Cry Cry Cry" is a beautiful tear-jerker – produced with strings and orchestral parts behind James, and stunning raw vocals right up front. The flip's an instrumental, with a very horn-driven groove, and a smoking organ solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Slinky/Floater
Polydor, 1970. Very Good+

Polydor, 1973. Very Good+
A nice groover from Mandrill! "Hang Loose" is a no-nonsense funk track – with some great comping rhythms, and a very tasty guitar breakdown in the middle! "Polk Street" is kind of weak – so just stick to the a-side! 7-inch, Vinyl record
N 1 (7 inch EP)
Polydor (France), 1956. Very Good-
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mister Luckee/Ain't That Hateful
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic single from Monk Higgins! "Mister Luckee" is a spare slow hard-grooving single – an organ/sax groover with a slow dance beat that's a bit like "Madison Time" (complete with calls), but pushed over the top by some wild instrumental soloing on organ, and by this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Paula, 1975. Very Good+
Another nice funky groover from Redd Holt! Holt's drums ring out nice and loud on both tracks - the groovy sing-song funk number "Gimme Some Mo", and the flipside, which is a great instrumental cover of the big hit! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Arista, 1975. Very Good
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Valley Of The Dolls/8th Wonder
Atco, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Forget the a-side, which is a dreamy instrumental, because the b-side's the real winner! "8th Wonder" is a nice groovy instrumental – with some hard drums at the beginning, and with King playing varitone in a nice mod fuzzed out style! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Soul World, 1974. Very Good+
