Are You Ready (voc, inst)

12-inch (Item 403002) BC, Late 70s/Early 80s — Condition: Near Mint-

Another nice track from Began Cekic, with a helping hand from Tee Scott. The groove's popping early 80s sound has a crisp midtempo almost roller skating vibe.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo in a BC sleeve.)

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.

A re-edited dance track, which says "Inspired by Bits & Pieces III" on the a-side and "Inspired by Bits & Pieces IV" on the flip. More in the Stars On 45 medley vein which was popular at the time than a seminal cut and paste track, both sides lay quotes from a bunch of ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Warner, 1987. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A great little cut from Sherrick – an overlooked Warner soul singer of the mid 80s! "Just Call" is an incredibly catchy number – one that's free from most mainstream soul cliches of the time – and which has a sly little glide over lightly dancing beats and keys. ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Chrysalis, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)
The mid 80s... when a song like this passed for politics in music! Forget the stupid message lyrics, though, and remember that Hardcastle cracked a lot of scenes with the cut – forging kind of a pop-political-street beat kind of groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)
What can we say? Despite the stupid appearance of the band, "White Horse" was a classic breakdance/electro track that crossed over so big it had kids in Kansas running out to by parachute pants and squares of linoleum to play along with the kids in the Bronx.

Two souped-up electro groovers from Bernard Wright – produced by Marcus Miller & Lenny White, with more than enough breaks and pops to make a factory of linoleum groover! "Yo Nard" is probably the best – as it's over the top electro with a poppy edge. 12-inch, Vinyl record
