Turn The Music Up!/Ride The Groove/Everybody Dance

12-inch (Item 356106) Vanguard, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


Mindblowing work from Players Association – the kind of single that shows why they were head and shoulders above most of the competition! "Turn The Music Up" has a great riffing guitar on the intro – almost Blackbyrds in its sound and style, and followed by an equally jazzy groove on the tune! The vocals are subtle, and really folded nicely into the mix – and the whole thing feels like some great lost track from Fantasy Records. "Everybody Dance" is a bit more upbeat, but still pretty great – with complicated basslines that continue the jazzy feel of the first track!

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

E Flat Boogie (voc, inst)
Al & The Kidd, 1980. Very Good+
Early work from Trouble Funk – so early, they're listed as "Trouble" on the label! The track's still funky though – and it's one of their best from the early days, with a good hard straight funk groove that's free of a lot of the cliches of later Go-Go work. Plenty of great ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
RCA, 1982. Very Good+
A seminal bit of crossover from The Eurythmics – easily one of the biggest tracks of the early 80s British invasion, and a tune that almost makes us forgive all the later crimes of Annie Lennox! 12-inch, Vinyl record

20th Century, 1977. Very Good+
A funky funky thumper from Barry White – and one of his last truly genius tracks! "Ecstasy" is presented here in a long long version that lets the tune's initial bass and drum interplay stretch out magnificently – sliding and slinking along in a classic White-styled groove, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
I Wanna Know Your Name/This Feelin
Panorama, 1980. Near Mint-
Frank Hooker and his group take on Philly International with "I Wanna Know Your Name" – all in a homegrown style that's a bit less dramatically soulful than The Blue Notes, but which still has some nice harmony moments on the chorus. "This Feelin" is back to the group's ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1976. Near Mint-
What a tune – one of our favorite Salsoul tracks ever! "Spring Rain" is a magical blend of strings, beats, and this soaring piano – all coming together in a lush groove that never quits, peppered with some sweet female chorus vocals that never sound cheesy! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, 1982. Near Mint-

Chi Sound, Late 70s. Very Good+
Gene's hit his modern soul stride on this one – grooving nicely on "I'll Make The Living", done in a smooth voiced approach that shows yet another chapter in his rich career as a singer! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A club/boogie number lifted from Joe's Mestizo album – not really his greatest work, but with a decent enough dancefloor groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Liberty, 1982. Very Good
A wonderfully funky number from Brass Construction – one that's a lot more boogie than their earlier work, but still plenty nice! There's a snapping groove here that's almost P-Funk, but way way better – served up with some sharp-edged arrangements from Randy Muller that have these ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
