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 - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Nice single featuring two later tracks from this master of the funky instrumental. More clubby than most of his 45's, and a bit longer too, with a nice stretched out groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
