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

7-inch (Item 44247) Karen, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

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.
(Label has a drillhole.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

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, 1971. Very Good
Original single of the funk track "Sang and Dance", backed by one of the Bar-Kays greatest tracks – the totally funky "Son of Shaft"! The cut's a great one, with wild funky wah wah guitar that's been sampled by everyone from Public Enemy to Bomb The Bass! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Capsoul, 1974. Very Good+
The kind of stuff that funky 45 dreams are made of! Both sides are smoking instrumentals with lots of choppy guitar, heavy drums, and cool cool organ. "Hot Grits" has a nice chugging groove, and the band screams "Hot Grits" on the chorus. One of our favorites! 7-inch, Vinyl record
