Now Do U Wanta Dance

LP (Item 361095) Warner, 1977 — Condition: Very Good+

Larry Graham's still burning strong here – resisting the temptation to go disco that you might guess from the "dance" in the title, and if anything, pulling up the bass-heavy funk even more! The set's got a super-tight feel that's kind of a distillation of the successful Graham Central Station sound of earlier albums, but still comes together perfectly overall – in a mode that's clearly having a huge influence on the rest of west coast funk. Titles include "Lead Me On", "Crazy Chicken", "Now Do U Wanta Dance", "Last Train", "Earthquake", and "Love & Happiness".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
