Money Won't Change You/Try Me

7-inch (Item 354399) Polydor, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

"Money Won't Change You"s a great little number – begins with runaway drums, then settles into a cold-vamping rap about the power of money, and what it won't do! The cut's a perfect blend of funk and message – from the pen of James and always-great Nat Brown. "Try Me" is mellower, but still has some decent work on the keys.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Gold label "Soul Classics" pressing with printed sleeve.)

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.

King, Late 60s. Near Mint-
An undisputed groover! The track's a killer uptempo one from James' later years on King – and it's got this amazing beat that snaps along at a full deep stride. Very nice stuff, and the kind of tight grooving that would show up later in his work with the JBs – done here earlier, with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Mid 60s. Very Good+
An interesting single from James – featuring his super-huge hit of the mid 60s, but issued on a late 60s King label! The tune's a stone winner as always – and the flip is "mostly instrumental", with a vamp that virtually invented the funky vamp! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1974. Near Mint-
Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. Even better is "My Thang", a nice hard funky track that's James' ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Beautiful soul from The Godfather, recorded in the period immediately after he discovered the choppy choppy guitar riff on the downbeat! Both parts swing hard hard hard, and the band is as tight as a pair of trousers after Thanksgiving! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1972. Very Good+
Great early work from Mandrill! "I Refuse To Smile" is a sweet little soul track, with some pretty strong harmonies and a nice mellow sound. "Kofijahm" is even better – and is a cooking instrumental with a Latin feel – which means lots of strong percussion, and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Goldwax, Late 60s. Good
Standout Memphis soul from the great Spencer Wiggins! "Old Friend" has a mixture of bluesy soul and Stax-like balladeering – a bit like Otis Redding, with the approach of labelmate James Carr. "Walking Out" is more uptempo and vamping – a catchy little number by ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
