Hole In The Wall/Go 'Head On

7-inch (Item 39182) Pure Soul, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record


One of the greatest cuts ever by this obscure west coast funk combo – and part of a huge controversy as to who was the original group to cut the song "Hole In The Wall"! The track begins with a slow thumping conga groove, marching along through crowd noises as piano triplets sneak into the mix, stomping around as regular drums come in, while some guitar lays licks over the top like pick up sticks! "Go Head On" is in a similar mode – faster, with a harder groove and a bit of organ, but equally nice! (Label has a bit of marker.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A very early Scepter single by Dionne Warwick – so early that the label put "This Empty Place" on the a-side, even though "Wishin & Hopin" went onto be the hit! "Empty Place" has a fuller sound than the usual Warwick mode – still in a Bacharach & ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daran, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Mellow harmony soul from Chicago – a great little indie single by a group we know little about! "You Turn Me On" starts very slow and starts to build up as the track goes on – in a way that turns a slightly sad vocal into a much more positive feel. "Generation Gap" ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
I Got The Number (voc, inst)
Number Nine (Germany), 2007. Near Mint-
A great bit of old school hip hop – served up with plenty of funky 45 touches! Fresh Mark have a relation to some of the recent work coming out from Tramp Records – and although the style here is hip hop, circa 1982, the overall presentation has plenty of deep funk spirit! Drums are ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
St Lawrence, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Classic Chicago soul from Mamie Galore! "It Ain't Necessary" has a rolling party groove that fits Mamie's husky vocal style really well. Monk Higgins is leading the arrangements, and the tracks' got a soaring northern groove that's very nice! "Don't Think" shows off Mamie's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sister James/Clair De Lune (In Jazz)
A&M, 1973. Near Mint-
"Sister James" is a nice 70s crime jazz instrumental, with a good tenor solo by Nino, and production that's better than any of his other records from the time. "Clair De Lune" is a jazzy take on Debussy's famous composition. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mister Luckee/Ain't That Hateful
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic single from Monk Higgins! "Mister Luckee" is a spare slow hard-grooving single – an organ/sax groover with a slow dance beat that's a bit like "Madison Time" (complete with calls), but pushed over the top by some wild instrumental soloing on organ, and by this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Vamp/Let Me Love You
Daran, Early 70s. Very Good-
Excellent trippy instrumentals from Chicago! "The Vamp" has some great chromatic guitar – a bit like Cal Green, with touches of Wes Montgomery – over a hard rolling organ on the beat groove. Tasty stuff – the kind of single that would blow the speakers off your jukebox ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great later work from The Ideals – cut a few years after their "Gorilla" fame, with some great backings by Monk Higgins! "You Lost" has a romping groove with plenty of Higgins touches – and although the vocals are a bit old-styled, they have plenty of great twists ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good+
Great stuff! "Wear It On Our Face" is one of their wildest cuts, and starts out with this crazy prepared piano introduction that sounds like it was just lifted from a John Cage record! 7-inch, Vinyl record
TRX, 1967. Very Good
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Savern, Late 60s. Very Good
A sock-soul cut with a really fierce sound! Frankie's vocals are great, but the tune's even better on the flip – where a mad cowbell starts things out in a monster break! That break's worth the record alone – but the whole thing's a mighty mighty burner! 7-inch, Vinyl record
MoSoul, Late 60s. Very Good
A thunderous funky instrumental – moving at half speed with a dark sinister sound, and kind of a wall of sound piano/guitar groove that's cut through with some very slick tenor work! Tasty stuff, with a stoned LA 60s funk sound to it! 7-inch, Vinyl record
