You Played The Part Of A Loser/Freedom Song

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

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.  © 1996-2019, 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.

DC International, 1974. Near Mint-
Great stuff from one of the 70s' best vocal groups! "Seems Like" is stone mellow east coast harmony soul, with a sweet ballad style. "Town Called Nowhere" is even better, and has a nice choppy guitar, and a good midtempo groove. Very nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

David Harris

Moments/Mama Oh Mama
Pleasure, 1974. Near Mint-
A great mellow soul tune! "Moments" is sad, dreamy, and really wispy – floating around with some spare harmonies behind David's lead, in a style that's almost in the falsetto mode of east coast groups, but sparer and deeper. The flip isn't that great. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Vee Jay, Mid 60s. Very Good
2 great Freddie Hughes numbers from his short-lived Vee Jay days! "You Can't Take It Away" is a Richard Parker number – done in a snapping, stepping sort of groove that has plenty of horns on the top, dark piano on the bottom, and incredible vocals from Freddie all the way through! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
