Ain't That A Groove: 1966-1969

LP (Item 3398) Polydor, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
An 80s collection of some of James' best King funk singles from the late 60's – with a monster set list that includes "I Can't Stand Myself When You Touch Me", "Don't Be A Drop Out", "Let Yourself Go", "Bring It Up", "Lickin Stick", "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose", "I Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothin", and "Get It Together". Good notes, too, with staff and details on most cuts!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a name in pen on both sides. Labels have a name in pen.)

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.

And Once Again
Polydor, 1980. Near Mint-
And once again, Isaac Hayes wows us with the brilliance of his later work at Polydor – really subtle soul that's a wonderful extension of modes first begun at Stax!

Hot Butterfly
Polydor, 1978. Near Mint-
A dancefloor classic! The album's the second by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie, and head and shoulders above the rest – a sublime blend of soul and club that's hardly been matched again!

Polydor, 1979. Very Good+
An oft-overlooked funky soul gem from the incredible Roy Ayers – taking turns with both uptempo material and more smoothed out soul sounds – all done with Roy's trademark jazzy approach to the dancefloor! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mandrill

Composite Truth
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the greatest records ever from Mandrill – a set that has the group tightening things up and getting even more funky than on their first few records, but with a vibe that's still nicely loose and spontaneous overall!

Alton McClain & Destiny
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
Nice album of modern soul that was sort of lost at the time it came out, but which has been rediscovered by rare groovers over the past 10 years. The tracks have a bit of a jazzy vibe, and sound similar to some of the Creative Source tracks from around the same period. Titles include "It ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Goodman & Brown

Ray, Goodman, & Brown
Polydor, 1979. Very Good+
Sweet silky harmony soul from the trio of Harry Ray, Billy Brown, and Al Goodman – the group's first album under a new name – after some previous indie work as The Moments!

Love Tracks

Chakachas

Jungle Fever
Polydor, 1970. Very Good
A mad mix of Latin and funky rhythms – a 70s classic from the Belgian group Chakachas! The album's best known for its title hit "Jungle Fever" – an insane cut that features heavy drums, choppy guitar, and a stop/start action that's peppered with sounds of female pleasure! ...

Gil Scott-Heron

Pieces Of A Man
Flying Dutchman, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold
Our favorite-ever album from Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that we'd easily rank as one of our favorite soul records of the 70s! The mix of modes is mindblowing right from the start – as Gil's poetry comes into play with his growing talents as a singer, and his warm sensibility for jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
