Sure Shot (voc, inst)

12-inch (Item 371607) RFC/Quality, 1981 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


A darn anthemic groover from Tracy Weber – one of those tunes that builds slowly, but really grabs you once the hook comes along – and keeps on rolling with a heck of a lot of power! Of course, part of the strength here has to do with the Larry Levan mix work – which steps out nicely on both the vocal and instrumental sides!  © 1996-2017, 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.

Capitol, 1982. Very Good
One of George Clinton's biggest hits – and probably his last gasp on the charts in a major way. The cut's a logical extension of late 70s P-Funk – with more of the bass-popping 80s grooves and electro touches that Clinton had inspired in so many other funky groups at the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Quintessential 80s groove from Chaka Khan – a great version of Prince's "I Feel For You", remixed here with some really chunky beats and cool sampled vocal bits! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rhythmic (UK), 1985. Very Good- (pic cover)
A crossover electro-era groover in the best Kraftwerk mode – one of those European imports that somehow managed to crack the US dancefloors strongly in the Danceteria days. Vocals are a bit cold, but in a good way – one that works with all the electro beats and keys! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rolling Stones, 1978. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A club crossover classic from The Rolling Stones – a track that surprisingly got the group onto the dancefloor in the late 70s, but which still held onto most of their best elements! Although sometimes panned as a cheap disco cash-in effort by some, the tune is actually pretty darn great ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atco, 1977. Very Good
Quite possibly one of the most soulful moments ever from Sister Sledge – but that's no surprise, considering that they're covering a Stevie Wonder tune that always sounds great! Euro disco maestro Sylvester Levay is working with the group on this cut – but even he can't take away the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 1986. Very Good+ (pic cover)
At the time this was issued, these tracks had not yet been released, though they've subsequently shown up on a number of the expanded CD reissues that have been put out since this release. Sadly, the totally burning funk of "The World Is Rated X" gets buried a bit in the bad 80s ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
