Love Thang/Great Expectations

12-inch (Item 53613) Gold Mind, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


"Love Thang" is a great little number by First Choice – lesser-remembered than some of their hits, but with a nice heavy beat at the bottom, bounced up a bit on this remix by Tee Scott! Tom Moulton handles the remix for "Great Expectations".  © 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.

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

Theme From King Kong/Blues Concerto
20th Century, 1976. Very Good
A great one! "Theme From King Kong" is a killer cut – one of the last really funky numbers that Barry White cut in the 70s, with a bouncing rolling bassline that's just great, stepping and changing a lot before the rest of the groove comes in to take the single home! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Solar, 1979. Very Good
Probably one of the biggest dancefloor tracks from The Whispers – "And The Beat Goes On" has the group grooving to a sweet modern sound with a sweet LA soul sound. The cut's a real stormer, with a hook that just won't quit, and it was proof that the group were ready to keep on ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

A nice 80s club cut, a moogy groover with an up-tempo two step sound, and a very nice hook, –roller boogie at its best. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Chaz Ro, 1981. Very Good+
A slammin 80s groover from Weeks & Co – one of their best early cuts! The track cooks up the groove like a monster roller skating jam – using bass, keys, and a snapping approach to grab us right away – before the chanting chorus and main vocals come into the mix – and ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
