Baby, Let's Rap Now (parts 1 & 2)

12-inch (Item 39495) Sugar Hill, 1980 — Condition: Very Good+
Believe it or not, the track's a nice midtempo modern soul groover from The Moments – even though it's recorded after Ray, Goodman, and Brown left for Polygram, and Sugar Hill was holding onto the name with a different set of singers. The cut's got a beautiful sweet modern sound, and a sound that almost feels like the Ray, Goodman, Brown stuff for Polygram.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

A later track by Candi Staton, but almost a return to the straighter southern soul of her Fame years – done with production by Dave Crawford, and a real down home style that's much more Malaco than you'd expect from Sugar Hill! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Mercury, 1977. Very Good (pic cover)
2 tracks off their Secrets album that really helped put them over, with a slick commercial funk sound filled with pop bass and cascading horn lines. 12-inch, Vinyl record
West End, 1981. Very Good+
An undisputed classic! The funky grooves of this early 80s single by Taana make it our favorite by her – and it's a non-stop killer that's served up here in a 9 and 6 minute version. Used as the sample for "Buddy" by De La Soul, and for a whole bunch of other tracks too! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Prelude, 1982. Very Good
Massive 80s groove! Long before Sybil cut her version of the Bacharach/David classic "Walk On By", D-Train cut this one – and it's an excellent clubby remake! It's backed by "Tryin To Get Over", a warm soulful mid-tempo track with lots of heavy work on the bass pedals, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1981. Very Good+
Spacey dancefloor funk from Skyy – and a really catchy number! "Let's Celebrate" has a bassline at the outset, but then follows up with this scratchy guitar that really cooks up the tune – setting a nice pace as the vocals come into the mix – chorus first, with a nice ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Columbia, 1978. Near Mint-
Ok, so it's Toto – but "Georgy Porgy" was a wicked disco anthem – served up with some great help from Cheryl Lynn, and some tight grooves that make the track one of the catchiest numbers the group ever recorded! The hook is simply amazing – and the way the guitars and ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Fantasy, 1977. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Two great smooth disco classics from Sylvester – both of which are way better than his tinny 80s work, and which have some soulful finishes that really make them sparkle! "Over & Over" is especially great – a 9 minute version of the Ashford and Simpson tune that really ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
