Ya Mama (voc, inst)

12-inch (Item 36202) Prelude, 1982 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


4.90 11

An obscure 80s groover on Prelude! The record has a choppy funk style, with vocals that might be called "rap", but which are more in that sharp spoken style that you find on some New York slick funk records from the time. Most interesting is that James Mason co-produced and wrote the track – which means that he's probably in the group, too! (In a Prelude sleeve.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Abet, 1977. Very Good-
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

Uno Melodic, 1980. Very Good
Massive! Sylvia Striplin is one of the all time groove favorites – not just because she's been sampled to death, but also because she's got an amazingly captivating style of slinky soul. Roy Ayers, Jamez Bedford, and Sylvia put this single together – and both tracks are great, the two ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sugar Hill, 1979. Very Good+
Three female singers/MC's with backing by the Sugarhill Gang Band – and rhymes that sound like they might have been written by the Sugarhill Gang. Maybe it's not up to the standards of other early female MC's like Sha Rock of the Funky 4 +1, but this is more like a 1979-era slow-tempo ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
