Money/Summertime Blues

12-inch (Item 372150) Virgin, 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-
(pic cover)
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

One of THE seminal post-punk dance singles – a twin pair of cover versions that are both pretty darn great! The Flying Lizards will always be remembered for their tinny cover version of "Money" – one that's way way different from the original Motown tune, and taken in a kitschy style that pokes a lot of fun at the lyrics. "Summertime Blues" is also taken in a very fresh way – a bit less of a groover than the a-side, but still nicely retooled with a colder dancefloor edge.  © 1996-2019, 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.

A great early groover from Heaven 17 – just the kind of cut that helped them cross over big on US dancefloors! The tune's still got some Brit electro pop touches, but it also comes across with a well-crafted style that's great for a post-disco dancefloor – thanks especially to bass and ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Red Greg, 1976. Very Good+
Excellent! The cut's a dancefloor classic – and it's got this wonderful little moogy instrumentation that's a perfect example of the genius of Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael, who put the whole thing together, and who give the cut a real P&P funky flavor. A real killer, and one that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Zoo York, 1981. Very Good
A fantastic mellow groover from Lowrell! The cut's got a bit of a Barry White approach – but with a groove that's stripped down more, and which slinks along a bassline and guitar riff that really sparkle nicely. The whole thing's super-tasty – and it's one of the best indie soul ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

A vocal and instrumental version of this fat, fat Go-Go take on 'Trans Europe Express", with massive bass, heavy syncopated beats, and nice spacey synthesizer sounds! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Trax, 1985. Very Good
Jesse Saunders has some fun with an 8-bit sampler and little vocal bits referencing the Amityville Horror film (we think) over this spare, almost electro-sounding early Chicago house cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record

A great major label single from Amel Larrieux – and one that features a sweetly thumping groover that should have been a hit! The track's a bit more mainstream than some of Larrieux's later work, but it's still plenty darn great – graced with really wonderful vocals throughout! 12-inch, Vinyl record
