12-inch (Item 407730) West End, 1983 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


A lesser known West End track from singer Shirley Lites – a hook-heavy number with a lot of electro keyboards in the mix – a really nicely percolating feel on the remix! (In a West End sleeve.)  © 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.

You Are The Star/Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman
West End, Late 70s. Very Good
A wicked split disco single from West End – with 2 great numbers! "You Are The Star" is a nice flanged out disco tune – guitar strutting over strings, with some wonderfully breathy vocals from Jakki! And the flip's even better – a great disco track with a goofy groove ... 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
E Flat Boogie (voc, inst)
Al & The Kidd, 1980. Very Good+
Early work from Trouble Funk – so early, they're listed as "Trouble" on the label! The track's still funky though – and it's one of their best from the early days, with a good hard straight funk groove that's free of a lot of the cliches of later Go-Go work. Plenty of great ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
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
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
Uno Melodic, 1982. Very Good+
A nice jazzy groover from Roy – lifted off his Uno Melodic LP, and offered here in long and short versions! The track's kind of up there with some of Roy's nice dancefloor tracks from the late 70s on Polydor – and it's one of the few 12" singles you'll ever find by him! 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
I Wanna Know Your Name/This Feelin
Panorama, 1980. Near Mint-
Frank Hooker and his group take on Philly International with "I Wanna Know Your Name" – all in a homegrown style that's a bit less dramatically soulful than The Blue Notes, but which still has some nice harmony moments on the chorus. "This Feelin" is back to the group's ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A great single – not really for the long mix of "Let's Go Crazy", but for the excellent long funk cut "Erotic City". The track grooves for over 7 minutes – and if you were to ask us the one Prince tune we remember most fondly from the 80s dancefloor, this would be ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Total Experience, 1983. Very Good+
The 80s party classic, with a special extended dance mix on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, 1982. Near Mint-
