Which Way Should I Turn/Funky Soul Train

7-inch (Item 400890) King, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good

2 great raw R&B numbers from Hank Ballard. "Which Way Should I Turn" is a blues drenched ballad, with a raspy King groove churning underneath, and "Funky Soul Train" is a raw blast of R&B shout that doesn't quite deliver the hardcore funk you'd expect from the title, but is satisfying nevertheless.  © 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.

King, Late 60s. Very Good
Both tracks are very nice, and the single is an excellent example of James at his strongest in the 60's. "If I Ruled The World" is a beautiful ballad soul cut, infused with the kind of subtle politics that James used before hitting his more radical days. "I Got The Feelin" has ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Very Good-
This is the kind of killer hard soul material that made James' late 60s years so incredible! "There Was a Time" is one of our favorite-ever tracks by him, and it's got a massive kind of soulful energy that's sometimes missing from other tracks at the time. "I Can't Stand ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Very Good
An undisputed groover! The track's a killer uptempo one from James' later years on King – and it's got this amazing beat that snaps along at a full deep stride. Very nice stuff, and the kind of tight grooving that would show up later in his work with the JBs – done here earlier, with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

A really cool 7" single from Japan – with a stunning version of "Lullaby Of The Leaves" played by Sleepy Matsumoto on tenor with a small combo that includes organ! The other side features a straighter take on the theme of the film. 7-inch, Vinyl record

A pretty weird little record from Swedish jazzman Jonas Kullhammar – as you might guess from the image!

Fretone, 1974. Near Mint-
"Don't Boom Boom" is a nice little fast funky number – grooving a lot like some of Vicki Anderson's work from the early 70s, tight bass and guitar dancing around some hard soul vocals that are very much in line with the beat! "Signs" is a pretty nice soul track, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stang, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Wonderful stuff from an obscure younger singer! Spoonbread was a bit like Jimmie Briscoe or Foster Sylvers – in that he was a kid singing soul with an adult-styled approach. The style really works well on "How Can You Mend" – done here as a gentle sweet-soul version, with a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
