7-inch, Vinyl record

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

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?".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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 60s. Very Good
An early one from James – with a raw R&B groove on both tracks, and shouted vocals that strike right at the core of the songs! "Crazy" has kind of a "Night Train" beat to it – and "Lost Someone" is slower, with a bluesy slow vamp kind of approach that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, Late 60s. Very Good
Killer funky stuff from JB, and just about everything you'd want from him: hard grooves, heavy politics, and lots of nice funky playing by the band! Also the inspiration for the great Talkin' Loud label! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Popcorn/The Chicken
King, Late 60s. Very Good-
Stone funky! "Popcorn" is a massive instrumental classic that we hardly need to tell you about – and it's backed here by the great instrumental "Chicken", which features some nicely snapping drums, punctuated by tight horn parts, and a nice jangly guitar! 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, Late 60s. Very Good
A great single, and one that's often overlooked! "It's A New Day" is a killer funk number, and it's delivered here with some nice choppy guitar, and a good vocal by James that's an answer to Women's Lib! And the flipside features James doing Ray Charles' old standard - but get this: ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, Early 70s. Very Good+
Killer funky! "Hot Pants" is one of James' pivotal tracks from the early 70s – and as you'll hear on this 3-part version, he'd totally perfected his masterful recording style of endless non-stop party grooves. The band keeps on playing for a very long time, and each part stands as ... 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
Polydor, 1976. Near Mint-
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1974. Near Mint-
Excellent little single! "Message To The Ghetto" has a deep bass-heavy groove, with the kind of political message you'd expect from the title. 7-inch, Vinyl record
N 1 (7 inch EP)
Polydor (France), 1956. Very Good-
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Rib Tips (parts 1 & 2)
Avin, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great little funky number by Andre Williams – one of those tracks that he originally cut back in the 50s, but redone here in a funkier 60s version! The cut's a nice one, with a jaunty raw groove that points the way towards his later funk stuff – but which also has the best elements ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Horse/Love Is All Right
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good-
A classic! "The Horse" is a great 60s instrumental groover that virtually set the tone for the next 10 years of brass instrumentation in soul music! The cut's got a raw TSU Tornadoes or Bar-Kays kind of feel, with a horn line right up front, in a catchy rolling groove that never quits! 7-inch, Vinyl record
