Yes I'm In Love With You/After All This Time

7-inch (Item 369351) Gold Coast, 1981 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

4.80 3

A totally great mellow soul track – recorded during the late Curtom years, by a group that may or may not be the same one on Salsoul! "Yes I'm In Love" is a really heavenly little number – a tune that builds and burns with a solidly soulful feel – mature 80s soul at its best, really sent home with the track's incredibly catchy hook! There's a nice stepping rhythm around the middle of the tune – and the flipside's equally nice too! "After All This Time" has much more of a boogie sort of groove – sweeping along in a great post-disco sound, with full arrangements that still keep things soulful enough overall!  © 1996-2015, 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.

Salsoul, 1976. Very Good+
A fantastic track that mixed earlier east coast vocal soul with the bourgeoning club/disco scene in Philly – and the results are the stuff of legend! The sound is not only a great soul track, but it's also got some excellent clubby grooves arranged by Norman Harris. 7-inch, Vinyl record

King, Late 60s. Very Good+
Although the Dapps were best known for their funky "Bring Up the Guitar", they're represented here on two slower soul cuts that feature their bluesy harmonies. Jame Brown still produced the whole thing, though, and it's from the period of his best work on King. 7-inch, Vinyl record

King, Late 60s. Very Good-
A great deep soul tune from James! The track's a holiday number – and the sweet little baby boy is ol' JC himself – but with James singing the vocals, the whole thing sounds like some great southern soul number, with Christmas only a deep memory away. Nice and slow and soulful – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

James' version of the big hit, done here as an instrumental with some excellent organ playing. The groove is nice and hard, and unlocks all the best potential of the track – especially during the organ solos! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kansas City/Stone Fox
King, Mid 60s. Very Good-
"Stone Fox" is the real winner here – an instrumental tune with some all-out bluesy guitar, riffing and rasping over a fast vamp by the band, sounding more like a Chicago Chess number than James' usual mid 60s bag! "Kansas City" is, of course, a version of the famous ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
