It's Too Funky In Here/Are We Really Dancing

12-inch (Item 42294) Polydor, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


Uptempo funky James from the end of the 70s – aimed at the discos, but with that funky sound of earlier days still pretty much in place! In other words, there's plenty of funky instrumentation in the cuts – a bit faster than in earlier years, but still quite nice – plus occasional flourishes of strings, to give the cuts a bit more of a disco approach.  © 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.

Tightly stepping funk from Donald Byrd – two great soulful numbers from his post-Blue Note years! "Thank You" is a tune that's as catchy as you might guess from the title – a track that bounces along on a bassline, with Byrd solos over the top – plus some all-soul ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Funky club from Olympic Runners – a bit smoother here than earlier records, but also plenty darn soulful! "The Bitch" might be a bit off-putting as a title, but the groove is laid out by some tightly-driven basslines, and the overall vocals are a bit more soulful than some of the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

The title track from the one and only album by B&G Rhythm – a nicely snapping number with great Wayne Henderson production, and a spacey blend of jazz and funk that would be right at home on Fantasy Records! Lots of nice keyboards in the mix here, but the tune's also got some warmer ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

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
TK, 1979. Near Mint-
What can we say? "Ring My Bell" was one of the biggest crossover disco tracks of the late 70s – with a cool electronic groove on the beat, and lyrics and production by Frederick Knight, making the southern soul singer one of the more unlikely disco forces of the time.

A dancefloor classic! Gregg Diamond was never one of our favorites – but we love the cut "Hot Butterfly", an amazing soulful club groover, with incredible work by Luther Vandross, and a stormin sound that just won't quit! 8 minutes long – and very very nice – presented ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic/Atco, 1978. Very Good+
Ahhhhhhhhhh . . . Freak Out! What can we say? The cut's a monster – silly to be sure, but still with a choppy dancefloor groove that gets 'em every time! Nile Rogers, if you'd only stuck to guitar riffing like this, you'd have become President! 12-inch, Vinyl record
