What I Got Is What You Need (voc, dub)

12-inch (Item 437814) Prelude, 1983 — Condition: Very Good-
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

Classic, classic 80s groove material with a fat bass synth pushed way up front in the mix, but without neglecting the other keys and snapping percussion!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo.)

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.

Prelude/Unidisc, 1984. Very Good
A wonderful crossover club classic! The track's certainly got enough disco to earn its name – but it's also got these cool dark keyboards, jerking along in a Danceteria style that gives the track a very different twist. The cut's quite striking – and the medley flipside has these ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Wuf Ticket

Ya Mama (voc, inst)
Prelude, 1982. Near Mint-
An obscure 80s groover on Prelude! The record has a choppy funk style, with vocals that might be called "rap", but which are more in that sharp spoken style that you find on some New York slick funk records from the time. Most interesting is that James Mason co-produced and wrote the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Prelude, 1981. Very Good
A Prelude classic from The Strikers – served up here in a doubly-mixed version by the team of Francois K and Larry Levan! The cut builds with a skittish sort of rhythm that has a few post-disco elements – including some cool moogy synthesizer that shows up even more heavily on the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Prelude, 1980. Very Good
Genius, pure genius – and one of our favorite Prelude singles ever! "I Hear Music" is one of those tunes that takes a single track and creates a mini-symphony of groove – starting with a snapping catchy 80s groove sort of mode (one that's clearly inspired by Roy Ayers) – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Nick Straker Band

Little Bit Of Jazz/Space Age
Prelude, 1981. Very Good
A classic early 80s groover by Nick Straker – not really as jazzy as you'd expect, but with some nice piano work that hints at use of the instrument in later house singles. "Space Age" is more of an electro track – with vocoded vocals and lots of keyboards. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sound Of New York/Becket, 1982. Very Good-
Maybe a bit goofy, but now a classic club track that's survived the test of time nicely as just about every DJ's theme song, with a monster scratchy guitar riff, and lots of that rolling bass pedal groove that was so popular in the early 80s. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Chocolate City, 1978. Very Good-
Disco remix of this nicely progressive soul track by Vernon Burch. The track's not as classic sounding as some of his work, but it does have a nice enough hook, and some righteous lyrics that keep the groove strong. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Pretty Pearl, Early 80s. Very Good-
A nice hook, cool keyboards, and a sweet flanged-out vocal style all make this one a nice bit of 80s groove! Curtis sings in a wonderfully warm style, and he delivers the song in an excellent sort of way that should have made him one of the bigger soul acts of the 80s! 12-inch, Vinyl record
4th & Broadway, 1987. Very Good- (pic cover)
An offshoot of the 4AD rock scene from the UK, this number sampled Rakim from "Paid In Full" to great effect – and it made quite a bit of sense that the track was issued on 4th & Broadway in the US (probably also a legal move, so that the label wouldn't sue 4AD for copping a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mercury, 1992. Very Good-
A shameless bit of pop house – but we love it! Lidell's original tune is super catchy, with a "nu nu" vocal refrain that will keep you humming for days – and it's presented here in a bunch of different extended mixes! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. Very Good (pic cover)
One of our favorite tracks ever from Prince – an instantly funky, instantly catchy tune that never fails to blow us away with its dexterity! The jam sounds great, even after all these years – and it's backed by a non-LP cut, "Another Lonely Christmas" – in which Prince ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
