Brazilian Love Song/My Sweet Summer Suite

12-inch (Item 360204) 20th Century, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


A brilliant single from Love Unlimited Orchestra – and a rare early 12" too! "Brazilian Love Song" is a nice uptempo groover off the My Sweet Summer Suite LP, with Barry's signature sweeping strings filling out the crisp groove. But even better is the massive "My Sweet Summer Suite" – served up here in a soaring disco version that runs for over 7 minutes long, and which gets the best out of the mad slow funk groove of the 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.

Theme From Shaft/Theme From Superman
20th Century, 1979. Very Good+
From the amazing Super Movie Themes LP, where Barry and crew take on popular movie hits. We know "Theme From King Kong" is the sought after cut, and just about everyone and their brother turned in a version of the Shaft theme at some point in the 70s, but that doesn't take away from the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
AVC Records, 1984. Very Good (pic cover)
Farrakhan with musical backing by a small combo that includes keyboards, guitar, and drums. Given that the man was a nightclub singer in his early days, he's actually got the background to handle a record of singing – and he's working here in a style that's definitely got traces of calypso, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1980. Very Good
A killer dancefloor stormer that never gets old, not even after it was illegally sampled by Black Box. The cut's a great one, and is the record that will forever be Loleatta Holloway's most remembered – and for good reason! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Theme From King Kong/Blues Concerto
20th Century, 1976. Very Good+
A great one! "Theme From King Kong" is a killer cut – one of the last really funky numbers that Barry White cut in the 70s, with a bouncing rolling bassline that's just great, stepping and changing a lot before the rest of the groove comes in to take the single home! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Personal, 1983. Sealed (pic cover)
The great electro classic – and one that will make you pop so much your shoulders will get sore! The single features the long "Din Daa Daa remix" – with lots of nice parts that drop out, and have the chorus popping out with great isolated sound. Also features the dub mix, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Ffun/ConFunkShunize Ya
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- (pic cover)
2 tracks off their Secrets album that really helped put them over, with a slick commercial funk sound filled with pop bass and cascading horn lines. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Welcome Aboard/Strange
Unlimited Gold, 1981. Very Good
The great Webster Lewis joins Love Unlimited Orchestra for this excellent later track from the group – the slowly funky "Welcome Aboard", a tight mellow track with an excellent stepping groove. Darn hard to find on LP – and even better on 12" single! 12-inch, Vinyl record
AVI, 1980. Very Good (pic cover)
Back in the day, Chicago never had much of a rap scene – which is why it was so easy for Chicago radio DJ Casper to score big with this little groover on the AVI label! The cut's actually not bad as sort of a funky clubby track – and Casper's rapping style reminds us a lot of Gary Byrd ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sire, 1981. Very Good+ (pic cover)
The super-huge hit – done up here in the full 12" version, which also features the cut morphing into "Where Did Our Love Go". 2 60s soul covers for the price of one! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Strut N Get Up/Freeze It Up
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good+
A unique little 12" single from Blue Note – and one that features 2 great funky fusion instrumentals from the team of John Lee & Gerry Brown! Both tracks have a full set of arrangements, but still allow a lean and sharp focus on the tunes' bass and keyboard parts – the latter ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
MCA, 1997. Near Mint-
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Uptown/MCA, 1989. Very Good+
"Spend The Night" is lifted from Guy's first album, and pumped up a bit by Teddy Riley – who adds in some great New Jack beats with a really sinister dark edge. 12-inch, Vinyl record
