12-inch (Item 380211) Chrysalis, 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

A crossover classic from the lovely Deborah Harry – a tune that broke Blondie big on the airwaves, yet which also had a great life of its own in the clubs – no doubt due to its driving Giorgio Moroder influenced disco beat!

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.

Vinyl Dreams, 1984. Very Good+
One of the most soulful club tracks we can remember from the mid 80s – and a cut with a hook that just won't quit! 12-inch, Vinyl record
T Neck, 1982. Very Good-
An excellent single, featuring one of the group's best late tracks! "We Go A Long Way Back" is a smooth modern soul stepper – with a compressed harmony hook that's great, and a warm soul feel that's a lot more 70s sounding than some of the band's other output at the time! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Interscope, 1996. Very Good-
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic/RFC, 1981. Very Good-
A pretty catchy groover from Suzy Q – slightly cold, with a thumping dancefloor groove that's got some nice European touches! A bit quirky, but with a stomping approach that's compelling. 12-inch, Vinyl record
In Search Of (5:31, 3:44)
AVI, 1976. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A strange but nice single! This one features the theme to the 70s TV special In Search Of – often concerned with tracking down unusual events and strange phenomena, in a kind of Chariots Of The Gods mode. The tune has a sweet disco TV groove – soaring along with a nice mix of strings, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mercury, 1987. Near Mint-
Probably the group's biggest hit, a tune that got play in many fields at the time! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Capitol, 1982. Very Good-
2 tracks from the group's second album on Capitol – almost as nice as the first! "Imagination" follows very much in the territory of their hit "On The Beat" – stepping around the dancefloor with a very strong 80s groove that never gets too gimmicky or flat. "Ha ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Chaz Ro, 1981. Very Good-
A slammin 80s groover from Weeks & Co – one of their best early cuts! The track cooks up the groove like a monster roller skating jam – using bass, keys, and a snapping approach to grab us right away – before the chanting chorus and main vocals come into the mix – and ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1981. Very Good+
Seminal 80s groove from one of the best second-generation acts on Salsoul! "Make Up Your Mind" is a catchy snapping track that wonderfully blends the electric and the soulful – with a heavy groove that just won't quit! 12-inch, Vinyl record
4th & Broadway, 1985. Very Good+
Patrick Adams really helps give Skipworth & Turner a groove on this one – a groove that's tight, midtempo, and stepping in a warm flourish of keyboards and beats! The cut's got a great hook that keeps on going long after the tune stops – and although it's somewhat of a pop number, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
It Takes Two (voc, inst)
Profile, 1987. Very Good+
One of the first hip hop singles that really made the crossover to dancefloor play. By this point, everyone's heard the sample three million times, but it's still holds up better than most of the uptempo cuts from that era. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Breaks (voc, inst)
Mercury, 1980. Very Good+ (pic cover)
