Cool Jerk/Hello Stranger

7-inch (Item 41390) Karen, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good-

One of the hardest soul hits of the 60s! The cut's got a rolling piano and bass groove that's simply sublime – made even better because the horns didn't show up for the session, so the vocals and piano carry all the grooves, making the track work harder than most of its contemporaries from the time! "Hello Stranger" is the group's version of Barbara Lewis' hit – originally produced by Ollie McLaughlin, who's working with the boys here, and done in a very different style than Barbara's version!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Two totally excellent cuts by the second version of The Bar-Kays – both with a super-dope vocal soul style that's more fitting of the Dramatics! "You're The Best Thing" isn't the famous female soul song, but a different cut – with great guitar behind some stellar harmonies! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Hotlanta, 1974. Very Good+
A great one by Jimmy – one of the best under-discovered soul writers of the 70s! The track has a stone mellow sound, with a great message delivered in a very heartfelt vocal, backed by some warm arrangements written and produced by Jimmy himself! 7-inch, Vinyl record
