(€12.70 || £11.36 || ¥1691) (approx.)

We know Fred mostly from his uptempo groover "Hook It To The Mule" – but here, he's working in hard-burning deep soul territory – really letting the track unfold organically over the 2 parts of the tracks, and wailing like all get out on vocals on part 2!

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.

Date, Late 60s. Very Good
The Steelers were one of the best Chicago soul groups of the late 60s – but they never really cut an album, and issued only a handful of great singles for different labels. This one's one of their best – and it features nice production by Al Smith and Calvin Carter of Vee Jay fame. ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fast Track, 1974. Very Good+
Classic soul club track, with a hard groove that has a Little Beaver guitar feel to it, and Sugar Billy's deep vocals over the top, asking the musical question in the title. Very groovy, and the album's a tough one to find! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Two good mellow soul cuts from one of his great Atlantic albums. "Groovin" is a bit uptempo, but "You Turned Me On" is a great soul cut. 7-inch, Vinyl record
20th Century, 1973. Near Mint-
Fantastic electric piano groove! "World Is A Ghetto" is a beautiful instrumental remake of the War hit which sounds cosmically wonderful on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Arista, 1975. Very Good
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Slaves (voc, inst)
Skye, Early 70s. Near Mint-
The tune's kind of a slow-building soul track – making good use of Grady's baritone vocals to give the tune a nice solid feel. The instrumental by Gary McFarland is actually even better – starting slow, but then hitting some nice funkier jazz parts in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Superfly/Underground
Curtom, 1972. Very Good
Here's a classic – Curtis' theme to Superfly, and a tune that never seems to get old. The track's got a stop-start chugging groove that's instantly infectious, laid out by basslines and conga, plus some nice wah wah guitar mixed with Curtis' vocals! "Underground" is a killer ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Record Breakin, 2014. Sealed (pic cover)
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Rib Tips (parts 1 & 2)
Avin, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great little funky number by Andre Williams – one of those tracks that he originally cut back in the 50s, but redone here in a funkier 60s version! The cut's a nice one, with a jaunty raw groove that points the way towards his later funk stuff – but which also has the best elements ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A beautiful jazzy score by Ellington – and a fitting companion to this classic Otto Preminger film! The record captures Ellington at a perfect moment – right during his Indigos period of increased sophistication, when his band was at an all-time level of perfection. Players include ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Prodigal, 1975. Near Mint-
Fantastic soul by Ronnie McNeir – one of his first big records! "Saggitarian Affair" is a great track – smoothly grooving like some of Leroy Hutson's early work, with electric piano riffing along under Ronnie's sweet vocals – hooking nicely, and always a treat. "Yo ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Imperial, Late 60s. Very Good
"My Dashiki" is a very hip 60s tune – with that South Africa-through-LA feel that you'd get from work by Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela, lots of jazzy riffing in a bouncy rhythmic style, done with a very righteous edge. The odd thing is that the lyrics almost seem to make fun of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
