Sixty Thrills A Minute/Got To Make It Better

12-inch (Item 475496) Capitol, 1981 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


Two great grooves from Mystic Merlin – one of our favorite club combos of the early 80s! "Sixty Thrills A Minute" is a wickedly funky little number – incredibly tight bass and guitar riffing away wonderfully, as some catchy chorus vocals urge the whole tune on over the top! There's great horn work too – and the single's backed by the excellent "Got To Make It Better" – a cut with a slightly slower groove, but plenty of funk in the riffs!

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

What can we say? This is a classic! The track has a monster roller skating groove that's been sampled more than a few times over the years – but which still sounds incredible on its own! Both parts are great – and even though the single's pretty darn long, you still never want it to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Needs no introduction – and a funky track so classic, it's still hard to believe that Lionel Ritchie was involved in the thing! A perfect choice for a Motown disco single – and one to slap on the turntables at your next mainstreamers gig! 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of the all-time great jazzy soul tunes! Gene Dunlap cut this little gem with backing vocals by The Ridgeways for his 1981 album It's Just The Way I Feel – but the tune has outlasted the album for years, and is a big favorite with steppers even into this century. It's backed by the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

"On The Beat" is one of the greatest dancefloor tracks from the 80s – a solid sender with a blend of funk and disco, made even better with a great hook, and a classic sound that never gets old! The cut's a crossover classic from years back, and you get it here in two versions! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sure, the politics seem a bit silly now – but the track's still one of Prince's last really compelling hits. It's got a totally infectious hook, a spare Timmy Thomas-ish beat, and a strangely captivating vocal that really sticks with us! The flip's a bit silly – a 10 minute extended ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

What can we say? "Ring My Bell" was one of the biggest crossover disco tracks of the late 70s – with a cool electronic groove on the beat, and lyrics and production by Frederick Knight, making the southern soul singer one of the more unlikely disco forces of the time.
