Chocolate Jam/This Time

12-inch (Item 373752) Epic, 1979 — Condition: Very Good+
2 sweet funky dancefloor tracks from Ndugu Chancler and the Chocolate Jam Co – both of them served up with some nice jazzy touches! "Chocolate Jam" is a groover with lots of bass on the bottom, plenty of vamping horns, and mixed male/female vocals calling off the tune in a party sort of way. "This Time" is more of a straight ahead groove – snapping along in a sweet disco mode, with the vocals trading off nicely on the lyrics!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Heatwave grooves always make a great choice for a single – spinning out with even more force than on an LP – and this single is no exception! "Eyeballin" has a silly theme, but a great little groove – tight, riffing, and funky in the best Heatwave mode – and ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Smoke City

Dreams (voc, inst)
Epic, 1985. Very Good+
A smooth mellow stepper from Smoke City – taken at a fairly slow pace, with washes of keyboards and some nice acoustic piano lines over the top, almost as an extension of a late Barry White mode, but less heavy on the beats. The vocal track's a great ballad, the sort that's perfect to play ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Magic Touch, 1978. Near Mint-
Obscure little disco single that's a bit short on lyrics, but which actually has some great jangly guitars, set in the mix nicely to cut things up a bit! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint-
A great bit of dancefloor funk from Chameleon – co-produced by Fred Wesley and Azar Lawrence, with a groove that's very much in keeping with the Horny Horns style of the late 70s! 12-inch, Vinyl record
AVI, 1978. Near Mint-
These two tracks jam along nicely in the disco breaks style that makes the Adventures Of Captain Sky a late 70s block party and roller rink classic! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, 1979. Near Mint-
"Street Player" is proof that Chicago could still sound great when they wanted too – a grooving little track that has a fair bit of jazz funk in the mix – and almost a Kool & The Gang-styled horn part over the top! Lots of trumpety solo work – and a great percussion ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
