Where Do I Go From Here/You've Got To Pay The Price

7-inch (Item 38498) Ric Tic, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

A great little number! "Where Do I Go From Here" is pure Motown – strings, vibes, and rolling congas underneath, as Al sings in a deeply soulful voice that roots the track in a deep deep soul sound! "You've Got To Pay" is a stepping instrumental – of the sort that should go well on a rare soul dancefloor that digs these obscure Detroit soul instrumentals!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Ric Tic, Late 60s. Very Good+
Classic Detroit independent soul from one of the greatest singers of the city never to make it big – except amongst soul collectors. Both tracks are great, but "Say It" is the groover here. Don Davis and JJ wrote both sides, and Davis handled most of the production. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eddy Senay

Safari/Sarko East
Sussex, 1973. Near Mint-
Nice choppy funky guitars from the fuzzy mind of Eddy Senay. "Safari"'s got a nice jungle funk feel, and "Sarko East" is a little bit jazzier. 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1972. Near Mint-
An excellent hard-to-find track by Lyn Collins! "Me & My Baby" has a wonderful gospelly intro, similar to "Message to the Soul Sisters", which then leaps into a great groove with a nice hard soul hook! The flip has sort of a nice Muscle Shoals-ish sound, with some good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alvin Cash & The Registers

Doin' The Ali Shuffle/Feel So Good
Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Alvin Cash pays tribute to Cassius Clay – screaming his way through the cut in a way that pre-dates most other Ali tribute songs, grooving away in that hard funky groove that you'd find on his best 60s work. "Feel So Good" is great, too – a heavy R&B stomper with a "T ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Soul International, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Beautiful mellow soul from one of the 70's least-recognized talents. Larry Saunders had a beautiful jazz-tinged style that sounded a bit like Donny Hathaway or Stevie Wonder, but which also had more of an east coast indie soul vibe to it. This single contains 2 of the best tracks from his rare ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bandit, Early 70s. Very Good+
An excellent harmony soul single by this lost sweet soul group from Chicago! The production and vocals have a real east coast style, with soaring sweet bits, and cool dope soulful arrangements that work beautifully in a Whatnauts/Moments kind of way. 7-inch, Vinyl record
4 Brothers, Late 60s. Very Good+
Very tasty single that offers 2 obscure duet sides from Chicago – both of which mix hard soul vocals and uptown production in a style that's similar to Ike & Tina, but which has it's own nice sound. Funny that we mention Ike & Tina, though, since "Don't Hit On Me" is a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sedgrick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the few great obscure singles cut by Chicago soul singer Jackie Ross. Although Jackie had earlier fame on Chess, her later work is all quite good – and this single benefits from some great writing and production by James Van Leer. The a-side's a nice mellow number, but we like the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Frankie Karl & The Dreams

I'm So Glad/Don't Be Afraid (Do As I Say)
DC Sound Ltd, Late 60s. Very Good-
Great harmony soul! Both cuts are stellar – with that kind of spare, post-doo wop 60s soul harmony sound that we love to death. The production is by Gene Dozier, and Frankie Karl's vocals really send us! A great lost winner! 7-inch, Vinyl record
DC International, 1974. Near Mint-
Great stuff from one of the 70s' best vocal groups! "Seems Like" is stone mellow east coast harmony soul, with a sweet ballad style. "Town Called Nowhere" is even better, and has a nice choppy guitar, and a good midtempo groove. Very nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Pye, 1975. Near Mint-
2 nice mellow cuts by 9th Creation – very different than their funk work, but still pretty great! "Sexy Girl" is our favorite here – as the tune's got a warm harmony sound, a nice jaunty groove, and a hook that keeps on going long over the cut's gone. A great east coast-y ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
