12-inch, Vinyl record

(€4.38 || £3.75 || ¥497) (approx.)

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.

You know the cut, the one that samples "I betcha think this song is about you". More remixes than you know what to do with, most of them pretty dope, too, for a commercial radio track. . . 12-inch, Vinyl record

Clean On Your Bean #1/Go Bang! #5
Sleeping Bag, 1982. Good+
A spacey disco classic! "Go Bang" is a wonderful tune – with a jaunty vocal refrain that's laid over some off-kilter keyboard rhythms infused with bass. "Clean On Your Bean" is almost as nice, and even more dubby. Arthur Russell produced, and Francois K mixed! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Casablanca, 1976. Very Good Gatefold (pic cover)
Fantastic! This is the kind of stuff that the 12" single was invented for – as Donna snakes and orgasms her way through 16 minutes of "Love To Love You Baby". The track has loads of changes and spare passages – and the cool electronic work by Giorgio Moroder sends us ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
