Lovin Is Really My Game/Stormin (Tabu)

12-inch (Item 49833) Tabu, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


Two classic club-driven tunes by this late 70s funk ensemble! "Lovin" is a strong disco number – female vocals in the lead, and lots of swirling grooves that go on for over 7 minutes in this mix! "Stormin" is even better – a funky ensemble tune, with some really catchy riffs and vocal hooks! (Label has some pen.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Brunswick, 1979. Very Good+
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
Polydor, 1977. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Doobie-doo doobie-doo! One of the catchiest Roy Ayers dancefloor tracks ever – a bassy bumping thumper that wonderfully skirts the line between clubby and funky! The track's got female vocals singing along with the hook – all in a mode that's quite similar to the most uptempo work by ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sugar Hill, 1982. Near Mint-
A killer single from Trouble Funk, on Sugar Hill, with the band's trade mark percussive riffing, and as you'd expect from go go, loads of nice fills and breakdowns all centered around a fat rolling bass pedal groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Next Plateau, 1993. Near Mint-
Even a few years out of the box, Sybil was still keeping things real – and bringing a deepness back to popular soul that makes most of her records still hold up nicely today. This one features the new jack "You're The Love Of My Life", with a strong midtempo groove, at that pace ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Dakar, 1980. Very Good
An excellent, if lesser known, uptempo roller skating groove, with a chirping guitar and rolling bass pedal groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atantic, 1978. Very Good+
Another huge hit of the C'est Chic album that gave us "Le Freak", with a similar uplifting piano groove and a chirping guitar line that kept us bouncing in the roller rink as kids. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Real Love (Is It Real?) (6:36, edit 4:40, real dub 8:49)
Jes Say, 1985. Very Good+
Mid 80s Chicago house by Jesse Saunders and Farley Keith. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)
What can we say? Despite the stupid appearance of the band, "White Horse" was a classic breakdance/electro track that crossed over so big it had kids in Kansas running out to by parachute pants and squares of linoleum to play along with the kids in the Bronx. Despite that runaway hit ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Shadybrook, 1977. Near Mint-
Classic 12" version of this one! "Oh Honey" is a killer, with a great spacey soul sound, and a monster sample on the intro. This version is 6 minutes long – a real treat! 12-inch, Vinyl record
A&M, 1976/1977. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Completely sublime! Shuggie Otis first wrote and recorded "Strawberry Letter 23", but it took The Brothers Johnson, and some smooth Quincy Jones production to make it a hit! The track loses none of it's original trippy soul in this version – and if anything, the better vocals ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Epic, 1994. Near Mint-
