If My Friends Could See Me Now/Gypsy Lady

12-inch (Item 387690) Curtom, 1978 — Condition: Very Good

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.  © 1996-2019, 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.

West End, 1982. Very Good-
One of Larry Levan's biggest crossover moments – as "Don't Make Me Wait" has the Peech Boys breaking out of the Paradise Garage underground, into the mainstream of soul in the early 80s. Not much in the vocal department, but a catchy hook nonetheless, and with plenty of bubbly bass ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. Very Good- (pic cover)
One of the most romping tunes ever recorded by Prince – the kind of cut that was an instant dancefloor stormer back in the day, and still sounds mighty groovy all these many years later! The song is featured here in it's very extended version – and is backed by the fantastic non-LP cut ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint-
One of the blueprints of hip hop! At the time, Chic's "Good Times" just seemed like a wickedly funky pop tune – but who knew that that bass and guitar groove would inspire a whole generation of hip hoppers, bouncing along in a groove that was at once at home on the roller rink or ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sire, 1982. Very Good- (pic cover)
One of Kid Creole's greatest – a track that bounces along with a mad bassline, grooving in a campy 20's sort of way, but with this old school beat that really makes the cut kick. "Annie" and "Corrupt" are both great groovers too – more proof that August Darnell's a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Paisley Park/Warner, 1986. Very Good- (pic cover)
Classic! Although folks had been saying for years that Prince was funky, "Kiss" was the first tune to really have him going to town on the instruments – in a way that we always expect from a true funk act, but not so much for the pop charts – reason alone to adore this one! ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
MCA, 1985. Very Good+
You know, there was a day when we would've been happy to never hear a Ready For The World song again, but that day's long gone! If you're as ready to revisit the 80s as we are, then give this baby a spin for a trip down memory lane! 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of Madonna's first singles – featuring some sweet Reggie Lucas production on "Lucky Star", and some clubby Jellybean touches on "Holiday"! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sunshine Sound, 1978. Very Good-
This "special disco mix" is a nice nice groover for the dancefloor. It's got cool electronics, with a great moogy solo, and a very tight groove! Nice breakdown in the middle, too. 12-inch, Vinyl record
