Willie Mabon Is Back – Funky (aka Willie Mabon Sings)

LP (Item 476710) Blues On Blues, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 46

One of a number of sessions cut by Chicago bluesman Willie Mabon in the 70s – done in at a time when his talents were being re-discovered by a host of younger listeners. The overall style is in the older mode of Willie's classic years – relatively spare, with backing by a Chicago group that includes Little Mack Simmons on harmonica and Mighty Joe Young on guitar. Willie's on piano and vocals, and titles include "Trouble Blues", "I Wonder", "Worry Blues", "Hey Gal", "Thinkin About You", "Going To Get You", and "Hang Loose Baby".

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.

An excellent album of slightly southern-tinged soul – recorded with a lot of care, but somehow overlooked in the history books!

Dot, Late 60s. Sealed
One of the best examples of a very cool 60s sub-genre – albums of soul tracks played by a "fake" studio group, which probably included some pretty great players that were working under anonymous conditions because of contract limitations!

ABC, 1974. Very Good
Fantastic stuff from John Lee Hooker, and a record that's unlike any other he's ever done! The groove is very hard and funky, with tight drumbreaks and excellent basslines that you'd hardly expect to find on an album by a blues artist – jamming around with a tight groove that really makes us ...
