✈

Late work from Hank Ballard's first run at King Records – some rocking soul tracks from the early 60s, with the gritty edge that we've come to expect from Hank. Titles include "Get Ready", "I'm Learning", "What's Your Name", "Excuse Me (I Think I've Got A Heartache)", 'She's The One" and "Your Lovin'".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes jukebox strips and mini LP images!)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

King, Early 60s. Good+
This is Hank's first version of the track, not the one produced by James Brown. That doesn't stop it from being nice and soulful, though – with a great rolling R&B groove that made it one of his best early moments! Killer vocals on both sides, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Early 70s. Very Good
2 great raw R&B numbers from Hank Ballard. "Which Way Should I Turn" is a blues drenched ballad, with a raspy King groove churning underneath, and "Funky Soul Train" is a raw blast of R&B shout that doesn't quite deliver the hardcore funk you'd expect from the title, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Very Good
Killer James Brown! This late King classic is done up in 3 parts – and weren't there only 2 parts on the LP? Even more of a reason to buy this funky 45. It's so hot, it goes all the way to part 3! That third part is the super-duper killer – done in a fast funk style that's so ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Early 70s. Very Good-
Enough soul power to run a whole generator! James is in stunning form with the JBs – and the whole thing grooves with a choppy guitar riff that you'll recognize immediately from a million 80s hip hop samples. The whole band has "Got the Feelin!", and the track jams nicely with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Early 60s. Very Good-
An early one from James – with a raw R&B groove on both tracks, and shouted vocals that strike right at the core of the songs! "Crazy" has kind of a "Night Train" beat to it – and "Lost Someone" is slower, with a bluesy slow vamp kind of approach that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

King, Late 60s. Very Good-
This is the kind of killer hard soul material that made James' late 60s years so incredible! "There Was a Time" is one of our favorite-ever tracks by him, and it's got a massive kind of soulful energy that's sometimes missing from other tracks at the time. "I Can't Stand ... 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

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
