Ya Mama (voc, inst)

12-inch (Item 36202) Prelude, 1982 — Condition: Near Mint-

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!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a Prelude sleeve.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Virgin, 1991. Very Good (pic cover)
Frankie goes for the charts, but still with a very nice groove – and a deep bubbling under kind of sound that stays true to his Chicago roots! Still wish he would have used a real whistle, though! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1979. Very Good
Uptempo funky James from the end of the 70s – aimed at the discos, but with that funky sound of earlier days still pretty much in place! In other words, there's plenty of funky instrumentation in the cuts – a bit faster than in earlier years, but still quite nice – plus ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
AVI, 1977. Very Good (pic cover)
"Le Spank" is probably the most successful track ever by this Rinder/Lewis side project – and for good reason, too! The cut's got a cool moogy groove that pops across the top nicely, a bit sparer than the rest of its disco contemporaries, and with a catchiness that's undeniable! ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Casablanca, 1980. Near Mint-
Both cuts are nice – still quite P-Funky, with a midtempo groove that recalls the best of late Funkadelic, with the Parlet ladies up front in the mix vocally, but the rest of the P-Funk crew doing their job as always! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1989. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Hard to imagine the Michael Keaton Batman being any sort of a "partyman" – but Prince's sweet little Bat-tune really does a great job of evoking that fantasy! There's just a slight hint at the old Batman theme in the background – but overall, the whole thing feels more like ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
