Hold On (To Your Dreams)/Ain't Nothin Missin But The Music

12-inch (Item 38477) Cotillion, 1979 — Condition: Very Good+

A wonderful stepper from the enigmatic Wee Gee! "Hold On" begins with a spare spacey intro, then sneaks into a warm midtempo groove – stepping along underneath some incredibly soulful vocals by Wee Gee that remind us of the best that Teddy Pendergrass had to offer. The real talent, though, is from Vernon Bullock – who provides some seminal mellow soul arrangements and production on the cut! Rolls on for 10 minutes long – and the flipside's a pretty catchy uptempo number too!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

MCA, 1992. Very Good (pic cover)
An excellent jazzy number – with all of Larry Heard's sweet keyboards firmly in place, but a tempo that has the cut moving at a much slower pace than some of his earlier house tracks. The cut works perfectly as a mellow stepper – and the flipside has a "dub" mix that we like ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of the most offbeat 12" singles to ever come from the hands of Arthur Russell – and that's saying a lot, given some of his other grooves! The approach here is much more experimental than some of Russell's other projects for Sleeping Bag Records – as the main track builds ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
