Nubian Nut/Free Alterations

12-inch (Item 35461) Capitol, 1983 — Condition: Very Good

12-inch, Vinyl record

✈

"Nubian Nut" is more of the Atomic Dog formula – kind of a popping bass groove that was the inherited legacy of P-funk that every other band was ripping off at the time, and rap-like vocals that George would probably never claim were rap! "Free Alterations" is the real charmer here – a sweet mellow soul track with a midtempo stepping groove, great harmony vocals, and a sound that's very different than any other Clinton tune we can think of!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Capitol, 1986. Very Good
Not quite up to par with "Atomic Dog" or any of his 70s output, this is still a respectable mid 80s commercial funk effort, with George kind of taking off on Cameo's take on his own sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Capitol (UK), 1982. Very Good (pic cover)
P-funk reigning strong again – as "Atomic Dog" was the song that proved that George Clinton could still funk it up for the 80s! This British 12" single features the 10 minute long version –with plenty of nice instrumental solos to keep up the groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Quite possibly one of the greatest southern soul singles of all time! Sure, you know Loleatta best for her disco work – but "Cry To Me" is a wonderful weepy ballad, done with these haunting strings that literally "cry" with the song, and written by Sam Dees with that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
