We Got A Thing That's In The Groove/Tired Running From You

7-inch (Item 44247) Karen, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

Two northern soul killers form The Capitols! "We Got A Thing" is a shameless follow-up to "Cool Jerk" – but we don't care, because the cut grooves great, and has some really wonderful drums at the beginning. "Tired" begins with some great drums, too – but then swings into a loping harmony groove that's really catchy. Great stuff – thanks to Ollie McLaughlin!  © 1996-2019, 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.

Karen, Late 60s. Very Good+
Excellent work from one of the best Detroit groups of the 60s! Both tracks move way past their "Cool Jerk" hit – but still have the same fire and soul of that one. Ollie McLaughlin produced, and the whole thing swings nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Volt, 1969. Very Good+
We love "Midnight Cowboy" – no matter what form it takes! This one's a sublime funky instrumental – lots of bass underneath the trademark organ, peppered with horn blasts by the group! The flip's a nice instrumental – an original, with a bit of a goofy groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Colossus, Early 70s. Near Mint-
These guys are great – a sublime harmony combo with a sound that's always a treat, and which makes digging up their singles always worth while! Both sides on here are wonderful – sung perfectly, and arranged by Johnny Pate with a slight lilt that really hits a sweet Chicago groove, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Virtue, Early 70s. Near Mint-
"Family Man" is the cut here – a hard-vamping groover with some hard and skittish drums that really make the whole cut groove! There's some heavy tambourine shaking away with the drums and bass too – giving the track a jangly little groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hallelujah Chorus/Richard Terry & Co

I've Got To Find A Way/Instrumental No 1
Nickel, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A righteous soul gem from Chicago – killer work put together by Chi-soul DJ/Arranger Richard Pegue! "Got To Find A Way" features a chorus of singers – not religious, as their name might imply, but a cool group with falsetto soul traces, working in a baroque soul approach that' ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Gordy, 1969. Near Mint-
Fantastic fuzzy psychedelic soul from the Temps! Norm Whitfield's rumbling funk helped this cut, and the Temptations really take the forefront of mainstream soul, and the wicked psychedelic touches still sound great today! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Money, 1974. Very Good+
Obscure material from this great raw soul singer. "Fall In Love" is the better track here, and is a good mellow southern one, in the best style of the Nashboro studios at the time. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fried Chicken

Funky DJ/Juke Box
Stone, 1976. Near Mint-
A very cool little single done by John Fred in the years after his famous Playboy Band pop – 2 tracks done in a slow-stepping style that's a lot like Miami funk of the 70s, but recorded in Fred's usual territory of Louisiana! "Funky DJ" is a hard clavinet number that features ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
