Tell It Like It Is/Why Worry?

7-inch (Item 30233) Par Lo, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good-

Classic! Way before he was reduced to a million bad stereotypes of New Orleans music, Aaron was a supremely excellent soul singer – and this amazing single will always be one of his greatest legacies! Sure, you've heard "Tell It Like It Is" a million times on the radio – but blast it out of this raw 45, and the song will pop your head off!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

People, 1972. Very Good+
An excellent hard-to-find track by Lyn Collins! "Me & My Baby" has a wonderful gospelly intro, similar to "Message to the Soul Sisters", which then leaps into a great groove with a nice hard soul hook! The flip has sort of a nice Muscle Shoals-ish sound, with some good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Brighter Side Of Darkness

Love Jones/I'm The Guy
20th Century, 1972. Very Good
A killer bit of harmony soul – one of the greatest of the genre from the 70s! Brighter Side Of Darkness are barely remembered these days – but "Love Jones" is one of those cuts that will go on forever – a sweetly tripped out number with incredibly baroque production, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Curtom, 1972. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Here's a classic – Curtis' theme to Superfly, and a tune that never seems to get old. The track's got a stop-start chugging groove that's instantly infectious, laid out by basslines and conga, plus some nice wah wah guitar mixed with Curtis' vocals! Backed here with "Love To Keep You ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Curtom, Early 70s. Very Good+
Two classics from Curtis' first solo album! "Hell Below" is here in a shorter single version – leaving off the intro, and beginning smack in the middle of the tight wah wah groove. "Makings Of You" is a mellow track with a floating and baroque quality – strings and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Spring, 1974. Near Mint-
Garland Green's great remake of this classic! He sings it with a nice deep Chicago soul style, augmented by some of the slightly modern/southern style production of the Spring label. "You & I Go Good" is even better, though – a sweetly stepping number that follows in the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jay Walking, Early 70s. Very Good+
One of the most overlooked groups of the east coast scene of the early 70s – but a great one! "The Way I Love You" has some stellar stellar harmonies, and a rolling conga-driven groove that's sort of in the pre-club vein! The flip's even better, though – and is a wonderful ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
