12-inch (Item 32124) Brunswick, 1982 — Condition: Very Good+
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

✈

A great little groover on Brunswick – with that kind of choppy club funk feel that you'll also find on some of the label's other obscure 12" singles, like the classic "You Are The One", by AMFM. The track's got a very nice groove – and the hook's enough to keep the track grooving nicely throughout!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo with a plain white label and a few red ink stamps.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Red Greg, 1976. Good
Excellent! The cut's a dancefloor classic – and it's got this wonderful little moogy instrumentation that's a perfect example of the genius of Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael, who put the whole thing together, and who give the cut a real P&P funky flavor. A real killer, and one that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

A great single that features two sweet jazzy groovers by Lonnie! "Space Princess" has a full-on disco arrangement from Bert De Coteaux – strings soaring in the front of the track, with some slight female chorus vocals – but still very much in the post-"Expansions" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
