You Played The Part Of A Loser/Freedom Song

7-inch (Item 417636) Capitol, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good-
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record


A wonderful lost single on early 70s Capitol – most likely one of those small local productions that was licensed to the label at the time! "You Played The Part" has an incredible sound that's mixed male/female harmony – a stated intro by the male voice, then lead vocals from a female with support from the guys – all wrapped up in slow-stepping arrangements that have a wonderful late nite feel! "Freedom Song" is more upbeat and righteous – mixing wah wah guitar with the soaring vocals of the group in a really great way! Maurice Simpkins produced both sides.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Plays with some surface noise.)

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.

Memory Lane/I'm A Woman
Capitol, 1979. Near Mint-
Very nice! "Memory Lane" is one of Minnie's last tracks ever – and it's got a super hook, really nice production, and vocals that always send us over the edge.

Capitol, 1979. Very Good+
Always-great work from Minnie! "Lover & Friend" begins with a spare piano note, stops, moves again, then the whole band swings into the mix in a nice jazzy feel – Minnie stepping up to the plate with a warm vocal and a nice bounce to her sound. "Return To Forever" is ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
