I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)/I Can't Win For Losing

7-inch (Item 434955) Volt, 1973 — Condition: Very Good-

A really great single by this obscure Stax group that we wish got the chance to make a full LP! "I'll Kill A Brick" is not only one of the strangest-named titles we've heard, but it's a great southern soul tune, sung in a style that reminds us a bit of Ann Peebles, and with sweetly bubbling Memphis production that only enforces that sound!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

One of those great funk singles on Stax/Volt from this period, by an artist who never recorded a full album for the label. The track's got a good hard funk groove, with a rolling bassline, and nice shouted funky vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Volt, 1968. Very Good+
As monumental of a late 60s soul single as there were was! "Dock Of The Bay" needs no introduction, but let's just say it's as stirring and effect this far into the next century as it was in 1968. "Sweet Lorene" the perfect counterpoint cut, a harder hitting southern soul gem ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two great cuts from this oft-overlooked east coast vocal group, who, at their best moments, could rank with the best of them. This is definitely one of their best moments, and "Extra-Ordinary People" could rank with some of the Stylistics best from the time. Their cover of the Eddie ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Spring, 1974. Very Good+
Garland Green's great remake of this classic! He sings it with a nice deep Chicago soul style, augmented by some of the slightly modern/southern style production of the Spring label. "You & I Go Good" is even better, though – a sweetly stepping number that follows in the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Island, 1976. Near Mint-
A surprisingly wonderful single from the heyday of the mid 70s New York scene – a disco remake of the "I Love Lucy" theme song, done in a skipping, soaring groove that's really nice! The tune was actually a big one for Latin bandleaders of the 50s – and there's a bit of a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
