BYOF (Bring Your Own Funk) (double a-side single)

12-inch (Item 529786) Westbound, 1978 — Condition: Very Good+

(Promo in a stickered sleeve. Labels and sleeve have letters in marker.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Crowd Pleasers

Freaky People (voc, inst)
Westbound, 1979. Near Mint-
Late Westbound funk, but with a feel that's very much in the P-Funk tradition – with lots of bass and keyboards, a tight ensemble groove, and some pretty silly vocals! Nice and long, too! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, 1981. Near Mint-
A monster rollerskating track! "Big Guitar" is almost every bit as great as "Bounce Rock Skate Roll" – Vaughan's other classic from the time, and it's especially as good on the "rockin" side, which is an instrumental with some great Chris Stein-esque riffing, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Erect, 1982. Near Mint-
Syl's last big record – a sweet bluesy groover for the clubs, with a bit of an older feel to it. "Ms Fine Brown Frame" was written with General Crook, who also produced and arranged. Backing on all tracks is by the James Cotton group. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint-
A strange little 12" single! Side one features "Sign Of The Times", a mis-placed number that has Terry trying for the dancefloor crowd, in a mode that really doesn't fit with his voice or style. "Occasional Rain" is a great one though – a remake of the title track ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mercury, 1983. Near Mint- (pic cover)
The Joneses' revisit their legendary 70s hit "Sugar Pie Guy" – and serve up the tune here with a few nice 80s club touches! The "small slice" mix has a nice bubbling percussion feel underneath the vocals – one that keeps the hook in place, but changes up the rhythm ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
American Dream, 1983. Near Mint-
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Paisley Park, 1987. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Sure, the politics seem a bit silly now – but the track's still one of Prince's last really compelling hits. It's got a totally infectious hook, a spare Timmy Thomas-ish beat, and a strangely captivating vocal that really sticks with us! The flip's a bit silly – a 10 minute extended ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
RCA, 1981. Near Mint-
A great re-working of Lamont Dozier's "Going Back To My Roots" – taken at a really different pace, and one that gives the tune a bit of an Afro Funk sort of groove! The original version of the track is great enough – but here, Odyssey work in some tribal beats on the intro ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Stiff, 1978. Near Mint-
"Wake Up"s another danceable number from the post-punk/post-disco years – with that great 80s crossover sound and almost a very downtown approach that features some great deadpan lyrics! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Virgin, 2006. Near Mint-
The best track from the Got Purp mixer featuring Big Boi, Killer Mike, Blackowned C-Bone and Rock D. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Chrysalis, 1995. Very Good-
Produced by SKI. 12-inch, Vinyl record
