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

12-inch (Item 42294) Polydor, 1979 — Condition: Very Good
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.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

If you buy one funky record today, make sure it's this one! "She's The One", a lost track by James, is remixed using the famous "Funky Drummer" break in this 1988 version by Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim)! But even better than that, the flipside contains the original "Funky ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1979. Near Mint-
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

TK, 1979. Near Mint-
2 excellent mellow soul tracks from Gwen's last album at TK! Both sides have a strong modern soul sound, and show Gwen pushing way past her earlier style, towards the "Funky Sensation" groove that was right around the corner. 12-inch, Vinyl record
West End, 1982. Very Good
A great later bit of West End – a wicked piece of dancefloor funk that snaps bass and beat together with a strong 80s groove! The tune builds nicely before the vocals even come in – working in some cool moogy touches, a TV-style sax solo, and then hitting some great lead vocals from ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Paisley Park, 1985. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A sweet sweet classic from Prince – a tune that was hailed as a move to psychedelic modes at the time, but which was really just a way for the singer to open up a whole new side of his talents! "Raspberry Beret" is wonderfully catchy – but it's also got a groove that's maybe ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
