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.)  © 1996-2016, 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.

East West, 1996. Near Mint-
Promo 12" single that features "Don't Let Go" from the soundtrack to the film Set It Off. The real treat, though, is "Hold On", a hip hop heavy cut that's still our favorite by the group – with a hook and a beat that we still enjoy hearing over the years. Served up ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

AVI, 1980. Very Good (pic cover)
Back in the day, Chicago never had much of a rap scene – which is why it was so easy for Chicago radio DJ Casper to score big with this little groover on the AVI label! The cut's actually not bad as sort of a funky clubby track – and Casper's rapping style reminds us a lot of Gary Byrd ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Columbia, 1983. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Funky breaking madness! Nice 12" single of Herbie's big hit cut with Bill Laswell – which sounds surprisingly better today than it did back in 1983. Lots of nice early electro keyboards – and some nice scratching from Grandmaster D St! 12-inch, Vinyl record

TK, 1977. Very Good
Hit work from the legendary Peter Brown – a key player in far more club sides than we can remember, but a real chart-topper with this one! You may know the a-side, which is offered here in a nice long take with a drum break in the middle – but don't miss "Burning Love", which ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Channel, 1978. Near Mint-
Great stuff from Pam Todd – a sexy little number that shows why she's always been one of the favorites of the underground! The a-side's a 6:36 version of this club classic, with a tight funky groove, and the b-side's got an instrumental by the Gold Bullion Band that's 5:30 long. Nice stuff, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Midsong, 1978. Very Good+
A huge hit, but a great little number too – one with a sense of darkness that's far stronger than we remember – almost sending a bit of chill down our spine when the trio shout's out the title of the tune! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Prelude, 1981. Very Good
A classic early 80s groover by Nick Straker – not really as jazzy as you'd expect, but with some nice piano work that hints at use of the instrument in later house singles. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Atantic, 1978. Near Mint-
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

Sire, 1981. Near Mint- (pic cover)
The super-huge hit – done up here in the full 12" version, which also features the cut morphing into "Where Did Our Love Go". 2 60s soul covers for the price of one! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Dance Mania, 1987. Good+
A nice stripped down bit of early Chicago house, super raw drum machine house beats with just a touch of vocals and synth thrown into the mix here and there, by Farley. 12-inch, Vinyl record
