If My Friends Could See Me Now/Gypsy Lady

12-inch (Item 387690) Curtom, 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

The height of the disco years at Curtom, and quite possibly Linda Clifford's biggest single – if not her best. The tune's an overblown remake of the old showtune from Sweet Charity – done with very full arrangements, and running for quite some time. "Gypsy Lady" is almost a disco answer to "Gypsy Woman" – penned and produced by Curtis Mayfield, in collaboration with Gil Askey.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

From Now On/You Can Do It
Curtom, 1977. Near Mint-
A really great little number from Linda Clifford – and a reminder that the lady's perhaps better enjoyed on singles than instead of full LPs! "From Now On" isn't a remake of the old standard, but a new track penned by Bunny Sigler – and the perfect kind of building number ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Cobbala, 1983. Very Good
A silly electro groover from the early 80s. Lots of keyboards that go "wheeeeet" – and the flipside has a message about Jesse Jackson, done in a psuedo rap style. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Epic, 1984. Very Good
The title track of his follow up LP to Juicy Fruit (even though the labels say this is from the LP Prime Time – perhaps a pre-release title for the album), this track is considerably more downtempo, but has the same crisp electronic drums, and nice light synth melodies piano lines floating ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Prelude, 1984. Near Mint-
Sweet electro grooving from Unlimited Touch – a record that's a bit more hook-heavy than some of their earlier work, but which also makes best use of the keys and drum machine bits to create a pretty great groove! Audrey Wheeler is on lead vocals, but the vocals are really late to come in ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, 1989. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Great early work by Wrecks-N-Effect! The cut's the blueprint for the New Jack sound – but it's a lot harder than most of the hits, and sounds more like a James Brown remix project than a piece of modern soul! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Herbie Hancock

Hardrock (long, short)
Columbia, 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Basically a sequel of "Rockit" with a harder edge: electro grooves, 80s sounding Fairlight & Yamaha keys and loud guitars, plus D. St on the cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Epic, 1982. Near Mint-
One of our all-time favorite solo tracks by Michael Jackson – that incredibly catchy tune from the Thriller album – the one with that groovy vocal "Mama Say Mama Sa Ma Ma Ku Sa" chorus! It always sounds a bit silly, but that's part of the appeal – and the tune has a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
