7-inch, Vinyl record

(€4.23 || £3.78 || ¥563) (approx.)

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! (White label promo.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Atco, Late 60s. Very Good
King's in fairly standard territory here – blowing lean, mean, and soulfully on 2 late 60s soul covers. There's some nice electric piano on the version of Aretha's "Never Loved A Man", but it's Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her" that's really handled at a pace that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Date, Late 60s. Very Good
The Steelers were one of the best Chicago soul groups of the late 60s – but they never really cut an album, and issued only a handful of great singles for different labels. This one's one of their best – and it features nice production by Al Smith and Calvin Carter of Vee Jay fame. ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atco, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great little number from Arthur Conley! "Funky Street" isn't really funk, as you'd expect – but it is an excellent hard soul number that's one of Art's best cuts from the time. It's propelled by some very tasty drums, and has a strong party groove that really pushes his vocals! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mocambo (Germany), 2013. Near Mint-
A sinister, snakey groove from the Brothers Nylon – one that mixes some slight exotic phrasing with an old school funky mode – in a way that only gets more confident as the groove goes on! The flipside is even cooler – a variation of this approach that has some really offbeat ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Love Talk (long, short)
Roxbury, 1976. Near Mint-
Lots of strings and grooves – not disco, but more of the baroque soul of Isaac Hayes or Barry White, arranged by Gene Page. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Two good mellow soul cuts from one of his great Atlantic albums. "Groovin" is a bit uptempo, but "You Turned Me On" is a great soul cut. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Vik (Mexico), Early 60s. Very Good+
Titles include "No Me Molesto", "Senor Juarez", "Los Bomberos", and "El Bodeguero". 7-inch, Vinyl record
Record Breakin, 2014. Sealed (pic cover)
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mars, Early 50s. Very Good- 2 x 7"
Great 50s work from Woody Herman – one of his lively sets for the Mars label! Features trumpet from Stu Williamson, trombone from Carl Fontana, and piano from Nat Pierce – and even a few great vocal leads from Woody himself! Great cover too. 7-inch, Vinyl record
