Happy Birthday/Greatest Excerpts From His Speeches

12-inch (Item 369624) Motown, 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

✈

Stevie Wonder's tribute to MLK, backed with some nice bits from the two sets of speeches Motown released, Free At Last and The Great March To Freedom: "I Have A Dream", "Drum Major Instinct Sermon", "Dr King's Desired Eulogy" and "I've Been To The Mountaintop".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a Motown 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.

Motown, 1976. Very Good (pic cover)
A split Motown single, featuring an artist on each side, and tracks that are definitely designed to cash in on the dancefloor cash!

Chrysalis, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)
The mid 80s... when a song like this passed for politics in music! Forget the stupid message lyrics, though, and remember that Hardcastle cracked a lot of scenes with the cut – forging kind of a pop-political-street beat kind of groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1979. Very Good
After "The Bottle", Joe's big remake of the Gil Scott Heron song in 1975, "Rap-O Clap-O" was probably his second biggest club cut. The track's got a very catchy groove – with sort of a stomping beat that Joe used to cook up his own dance. Arranged by the great Marty ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Aural Exciters

Chinese Rap (voc, inst)
Top Flight, 1982. Very Good
An odd 12" from a group that made a handful of recordings for the Ze label. The track's basically a rip off of Skyy's "Call Me", with some strange ad-libbed "rap" over top, part of which sounds kind of like a Chipmunk's record. Bizarre. 12-inch, Vinyl record
