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.

Wand, Late 60s. Very Good
Two excellent numbers from this extremely talented Chicago vocal group! The Esquires had harmonies that most other groups would die for – and they groove massively on "You Got The Power", a swinging uptempo number with that loping sound that the group pushed big on their first big ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Wand, 1974. Near Mint-
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
Wand, 1974. Very Good+
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
Spring, 1975. Very Good+
Obscure mid period material from Garland! "Bumpin & Stompin" is a funky disco number, with a groove that's not too bad in a kind of pop soul way, but which doesn't work as well for Garland as other backing. The flip's nice, though, and features a very tasty spokey bluesy kind of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Very Good+
2 killer 60s instrumentals! "Shhhhh" is nothing quiet at all – and the track's a stormer with heavy drums, wailing organ, and some nice grunts and groans from James in the background! "Here I Go" is a groover, too – and one with a very unusual piano in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Gamble, Late 60s. Very Good-
We never tire of the Intruders – and a single like this is the reason why! "I'm Girl Scoutin" is great stuff in their classic mode – with kind of a silly theme, but solid soul vocals that totally put the whole thing over without a flaw! "Wonder What Kind" is great, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Dakar, Late 60s. Very Good-
A stone classic from Tyrone – and one of the best Chicago soul singles of the late 60s! "Can I Change My Mind" has a vamping, romping groove that's every bit the Brunswick sound at its best – topped with incredible vocals by Tyrone, on a lyric that practically hearalds a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
