Bitch (double a-side single)

12-inch (Item 407661) Polydor, 1979 — Condition: Very Good+
$3.99 ...

12-inch, Vinyl record

(€3.53 || £3.07 || ¥443) (approx.)

Funky club from Olympic Runners – a bit smoother here than earlier records, but also plenty darn soulful! "The Bitch" might be a bit off-putting as a title, but the groove is laid out by some tightly-driven basslines, and the overall vocals are a bit more soulful than some of the group's earlier work.

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.

Polydor, 1980. Very Good+
A great track from Roy Ayers – and one that's often overlooked! The cut's a smooth mellow stepper, with a nice jazzy vibe, and a wonderful monologue from Roy at the beginning (he's trying to pick up a girl). The cut got kind of buried on the Love Fantasy LP – so it's extra nice to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1978. Very Good (pic cover)
The title track from the one and only album by B&G Rhythm – a nicely snapping number with great Wayne Henderson production, and a spacey blend of jazz and funk that would be right at home on Fantasy Records! Lots of nice keyboards in the mix here, but the tune's also got some warmer ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+
A sweet funky club track, with a great jazzy style that reminds us a lot of work at the time by Don Blackman or Bernard Wright! The cut's got a groove that sort of mixes P-Funk and early 80s groove – with some very nice keyboards and riffing guitars, topped off by some wonderfully sweet ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sugar Hill, 1982. Very Good+
Old school track from Sugar Hill's female trio that does not feature the classic Sugar Hill rhythm section, but instead uses a more synthetic sound, along the lines of maybe the Dazz Band. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic/Atco, 1978. Very Good+
Ahhhhhhhhhh . . . Freak Out! What can we say? The cut's a monster – silly to be sure, but still with a choppy dancefloor groove that gets 'em every time! Nile Rogers, if you'd only stuck to guitar riffing like this, you'd have become President! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Hot Butterfly/Fess Up To The Boogie
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
A dancefloor classic! Gregg Diamond was never one of our favorites – but we love the cut "Hot Butterfly", an amazing soulful club groover, with incredible work by Luther Vandross, and a stormin sound that just won't quit! 8 minutes long – and very very nice – presented ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Ffun/ConFunkShunize Ya
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- (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

Chi Sound, Late 70s. Very Good+
Gene's hit his modern soul stride on this one – grooving nicely on "I'll Make The Living", done in a smooth voiced approach that shows yet another chapter in his rich career as a singer! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sugar Hill, 1982. Near Mint-
A killer single from Trouble Funk, on Sugar Hill, with the band's trade mark percussive riffing, and as you'd expect from go go, loads of nice fills and breakdowns all centered around a fat rolling bass pedal groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
