Blow Your Whistle/Funk To The Folks

7-inch (Item 5042) Sussex, 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

A fantastic cut! "Funk To The Folks" is a monster – one of the group's best tracks ever. It's got loads of jazzy changes – which makes it sound like an Eric B sample from way back – and the cut snaps back and forth like a bobble-headed dog on a Tilt-a-Whirl at high speed. Great stuff – and one you'll play for years! "Blow Your Whistle" isn't bad either – a bit faster, but still nicely chugging along!  © 1996-2021, 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.

Love Land/Sorry Charlie
Warner, 1969. Very Good-
One of the biggest singles by Charles Wright – and backed with a nice b-side! "Love Land" is a great loping vocal soul cut – a lot sweeter than your average cut by the Watts Rhythm Band, but very catchy and very nice, too! "Sorry Charlie" is an instrumental – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Karen, Mid 60s. Very Good-
One of the hardest soul hits of the 60s! The cut's got a rolling piano and bass groove that's simply sublime – made even better because the horns didn't show up for the session, so the vocals and piano carry all the grooves, making the track work harder than most of its contemporaries from ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Twinight, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A fantastic funky number from Syl! "Don't Give It Away" has a verse that makes it sound like an answer to "It's Your Thing" – with vamping guitars and horns that would make the Isley Brothers proud, and which would also leave them wishing they could sing as great as Syl! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
AVI, 1976. Very Good-
Nice early stuff from El Coco – with more of a funky sound than later work! "Let's Get it Together" is a nice club groover, stretched out to 6 minutes here – with some great keyboards drifting in and out of midtempo beats – almost in a P&P sort of mode, but a bit ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rare 60s work from Brenner's Folk – a Spanish group who later changed their name to Pic Nic, and had a lot more success in that format! The style here is a bit folksy, but also recorded with a garagey style too – a nicely dark current that makes the male singer sound especially nice, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
