A nice CTI single – one that features a sparkling medley of "Summertime" and "2001" – done by George Benson with full orchestral backdrop, in a way that builds nicely as the tune goes on! The track starts mellow, with George singing beautifully on the start – the strings swirling around him like a hip soundtrack theme. He scats along with his guitar as the tune builds on, and the orchestral backdrop very slightly changes to "2001" in a very cool way! The flipside is straighter, and funkier – and features the title tune to George's Good King Bad album – with hip guitar over funky big band arrangements from David Matthews.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

This "special disco mix" is a nice nice groover for the dancefloor. It's got cool electronics, with a great moogy solo, and a very tight groove! Nice breakdown in the middle, too. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1977. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Doobie-doo doobie-doo! One of the catchiest Roy Ayers dancefloor tracks ever – a bassy bumping thumper that wonderfully skirts the line between clubby and funky! The track's got female vocals singing along with the hook – all in a mode that's quite similar to the most uptempo work by ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

A seminal bit of crossover from The Eurythmics – easily one of the biggest tracks of the early 80s British invasion, and a tune that almost makes us forgive all the later crimes of Annie Lennox! 12-inch, Vinyl record
