12-inch, Vinyl record

(€4.12 || £3.67 || ¥553) (approx.)

One of Curtis Mayfield's attempts to crack the dancefloor during the late 70s. The song's got an uptempo groove, and moves along at a fast pace, with lots of strings and percussion in a warm clubby groove. Curtis' voice is still in nice shape, though – and there's some moments to the track that still let his soulfulness shine through. More of an oddity than an essential record, though. (Promo. Labels have some pen.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Chocolate City, 1975. Very Good
A rare promo single featuring "Rigor Mortis" – one of Cameo's best tracks ever! The cut's got a funk vamp on the intro that you'll recognize from sampling instantly – and the whole thing's a nicely compressed joint with a full-on sound that the band rarely ever duplicated! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Capitol, 1982. Very Good
One of George Clinton's biggest hits – and probably his last gasp on the charts in a major way. The cut's a logical extension of late 70s P-Funk – with more of the bass-popping 80s grooves and electro touches that Clinton had inspired in so many other funky groups at the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Columbia, Late 70s. Very Good (pic cover)
"Boogie Wonderland" was EWF's biiiiiig jammer with vocals by The Emotions – a huge hit for years, both on radio and the dancefloors! Nice here in an instrumental version too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rhythmic (UK), 1985. Very Good- (pic cover)
A crossover electro-era groover in the best Kraftwerk mode – one of those European imports that somehow managed to crack the US dancefloors strongly in the Danceteria days. Vocals are a bit cold, but in a good way – one that works with all the electro beats and keys! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Uno Melodic, 1980. Near Mint-
A classic club track by this Roy Ayers side project – presented here on an original Uno Melodic 12" single! Roy wrote the track with Edwin Birdsong, and it's got a lot of nice popping and quirky funk bits, similar to Edwin's "Rapper Dapper Snapper", of the same vintage. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 1986. Very Good+ (pic cover)
At the time this was issued, these tracks had not yet been released, though they've subsequently shown up on a number of the expanded CD reissues that have been put out since this release. Sadly, the totally burning funk of "The World Is Rated X" gets buried a bit in the bad 80s ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Virgin, 1988. Very Good
4 mixes of this classic bit of Detroit Techno – going over the top, into the mainstream, thanks to the lasting genius of Kevin Saunderson! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Festival, 1977. Near Mint-
"Mary Hartman" is a nice instrumental disco number – based on the theme to the odd little TV show from the 70s. "Pinada" is funkier – with some nice guitar at the beginning, which then steps into a punchy Latin-tinged number – still a bit clubby, but with more ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
