Dance Your Ass Off

LP (Item 4662) Dakar, 1976 — Condition: Very Good

Easy to dance your ass off with music this great – a fast, firey form of funk that's very much in the best Bohannon mode – that unique groove that was unlike anything else to hit the American scene for years to come! The record's a locomotive right from the start – a completely tight union of guitar, bass, drums, and just about anything else that gets into the mix – served up at a fast chugging groove that's very different than either typical funk or 70s disco! A few tracks add in a bit of extra strings, but these are always subsumed by the strong strong rhythms – and titles include the cut "Zulu", which has always been a favorite here in Chitown – plus "Party People", "Dance Your Ass Off", and "Bohannon's Theme".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and a cut corner.)

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.

Without You In My Life
Dakar, 1972. Sealed
Warm and tender work from the mighty Tyrone Davis – really singing here at the height of his early powers, in that wonderful blend of the rough and smooth that made him so unique!

Manhattans

Back To Basics
Columbia, 1986. Near Mint-
The Manhattans get back to basics, but they're also working with a sound that's a bit smoother and more contemporary than before – a mix of slightly grooving rhythms and mellower quiet storm moments, the latter of which is especially well-suited to their vocals! There's a bit less ... LP, Vinyl record album
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good+
The pleasure principle is in full effect here – a really special sort of feeling that strongly shows off the female side of the Parliament/Funkadelic mothership! The album's got a groove that's way different than most female disco of the time – more offbeat and angular, thanks to funky ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stairsteps (aka Five Stairsteps)

Stairsteps (1970)
Buddah, 1970. Very Good+
A really heady set from The Five Stairsteps – a record that shows the group looking older (and tougher!) on the cover, and one that also shows some maturity in their sound too! We're not sure what was in the water at the time, but these guys definitely seem to be drinking in a bit of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peabo Bryson

I Am Love
Capitol, 1981. Very Good+
A sweet solo set from Peabo Bryson – part of his excellent run of records for Capitol, and an album that features great production from the legendary Johnny Pate! Peabo's got this great way of being mellow and masculine, but without ever sounding too cliched – at a level that makes a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mingus Ah Um

One of Charles Mingus' true classics – and an essential album in any jazz collection!
