Smiling Faces Sometimes/You Got The Love I Need

7-inch (Item 438285) Gordy, 1971 — Condition: Very Good+

Two heavy psychedelic soul classics from the man who very nearly invented the genre, Norm Whitfield, working with his protege vocal group the Undisputed Truth in his full on rumbling funk, massive wall of sound mode!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Label has some wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

A madly tripped-out tune that forever changed the sound of soul! "Run Away Child" is Norman Whitfield working at his best – lots of bass, lots of fuzz – and a stone righteous groove that's a perfect foil for the Temps' great vocals! "Need Your Lovin" is great too ... 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
