Free Man (orig, disco mix)

7-inch (Item 4985) Wand, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

A bona-fide club classic – and the standout classic of the South Shore Commission! The tune's got a stepping soulful approach that's early Philly club at its best – the early days of disco, when there was still plenty of soul in the mix!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Nice electric funk single from the 70's, and one that's got a very different sound than the General's raw late 60's work from Chicago! This one's got some nice wah wah keyboards, and a good choppy groove that's got this cool popping instrumental sound on the flip! Very nice – and one of his ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great little number from General Crook! "I'm Satisfied" is tight and mellow – Crook getting down with some slow vamping electric keys and bass – building up the tune in a wonderful way, and sounding a lot like Garland Green on some of his best early 70s sides! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bunky, Late 60s. Very Good+
Great single by the Esquires! Sure, the a-side is a follow up to their hit "Get On Up", and it sounds pretty much the same – but the winning harmonies make it groove nicely nicely nicely. The flipside's even better, and has a fragile harmony soul sound that recalls the best work ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Great stuff! We love Deon Jackson – we love his voice, we love his songs, and we love the great production he gets from the legendary Ollie McLaughlin! This single is one of his great early ones – and although it's a bit of a shameless follow-up to "Love Makes The World Go ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Gamble, Late 60s. Very Good+
Fantastic stuff from this great Philly group! "Cowboys To Girls" is probably the group's biggest track from the old days – with a loping hook that's as sweet as it is catchy! "Turn The Hands Of Time" is wonderful too – with a strident driving groove, punctuated ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Minit, Late 60s. Very Good+
Two nice ones from Bobby! "Love The Time" is a sad mellow tune – Bobby's vocals snaking around some sly-bad guitar work, gently singing the tune, but working it for all the soul it's got! "I Left My Heart" is a great cover of a familiar hit – done at a skipping ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tremendous soul from The Intruders! "Love Is Like A Baseball Game" is simply incredible – a wonderful little tune that's incredibly catchy, and which rolls along in a sing-song groove that matches the chorus perfectly. Vocals are wonderfully fragile, yet totally sweet – and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
