Tell Him About Johnny/I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman

7-inch (Item 54009) RCA, 1967 — Condition: Near Mint-

An obscure little soul single from Mauricio Smith – the Latin flute player who cut only a few records in his day, all very groovy! "Tell Him About Johnny" is a vocal number – Mauricio's flute riffing around a lot in the background, and getting a few brief moments upfront – as the song's sing-song lyrics groove around in a nice New York mode. "Kaiser Bill's Batman" is a cover of the late 60s novelty number – done as an instrumental with a whistling flute and some twang-heavy guitars!  © 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.

Gene Dozier & The Brotherhood

Mustang Sally/I Wanna Testify
Minit, Late 60s. Very Good-
2 sweet organ instrumentals from Gene Dozier – a talent who went onto become a great soul arranger, but who was a mighty tight Hammond player in the early days! Both tracks are covers of pop soul tracks, and have a nice instrumental sound, with a good Minit soul groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good
Great stuff from this hip Chicago girl singer! "Mama Didn't Lie" is a sweet little number that's gone onto live forever – a sweet late nite cut with a mellow sound that's a perfect fit for Jan's honest vocals. "Lovers" is not bad, too – with a rolling bongo groove ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
