A great re-working of Lamont Dozier's "Going Back To My Roots" – taken at a really different pace, and one that gives the tune a bit of an Afro Funk sort of groove! The original version of the track is great enough – but here, Odyssey work in some tribal beats on the intro – then sparkle the tune with some jazzier 80s flourishes – then expand it on the even more Afro-tinged "Roots Suite" on the flipside!

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.

Doobie-doo doobie-doo! One of the catchiest Roy Ayers dancefloor tracks ever – a bassy bumping thumper that wonderfully skirts the line between clubby and funky!

Totally cool UK 12" reissue single that includes this excellent, much-sampled, and very sought-after track by Sylvia Striplin. Even if you don't know it, you'll recognize the sample in the intro, and believe us, the rest of the track more than lives up to the first 10 seconds! It's got sweet ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Le Joint, 1979. Very Good+
Nice lost club track featuring this gutsy disco diva (wasn't she actually someone else under another name?) The vocal version has a good hard groove, and the flip's got a nice instrumental version with some cool electric piano solos. 12-inch, Vinyl record
