Don't Drop Out Of School/Check My Tears

7-inch (Item 414033) ABC, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Oh for the days of the "drop out" single! We're not sure why don't they ever make these any more, but this cut's a great reminder of the genre at its best – done with a simple message that never gets too complicated – set to upbeat and bouncing arrangements from Johnny Pate, who also penned the track! "Check My Tears" is more of a tune overall – one that starts with some nice Pate-esque woodwinds before the vocals, then builds into a beautiful Impressions-like mode!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Killer stuff from Johnny Bristol! "You and I" is one of his best early tracks – and it begins with this tight hard drum sound that's right out of Barry White's best funky tracks, and which works perfectly for Johnny's sweet soul vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
