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.

RCA, 1972. Near Mint-
As might be expected, "Luther" is Jimmy's follow-up to his classic funky "Troglodyte". The track's another groover about a caveman, and it's got the same sort of silly funky groove – with lots of nice heavy guitars! 7-inch, Vinyl record

2 sweet soul classics from the Main Ingredient! "Everybody Plays The Fool" is probably the group's best-remembered track but "Who Can I Turn To" is no slouch either. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funky work from this excellent Detroit keyboardist! "Grand Central" is a humming instrumental – one that begins with raw guitar licks and hi-hats, plucking out the groove before more guitar scratches on in, and Johnny comes over the top on some hard piano lines. Wah wah gets into ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funky late 60s work from the great Andre Williams – reissued here on a Chess Blue Chip pressing from the 70s! "The Stroke" is one of Andre's greatest numbers – a slapping funky groover with twangy guitar over bass over drums, all supporting a groove that's got Andre talking ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atco, Late 60s. Very Good+
Beautiful soul from George Clinton! Recorded years before the band's first album, but with a rich heavy sound that mixes the Detroit harmony tradition with fuzzier tripped-out soul arrangements – for a great sound that still sounds really beautiful today. Excellent harmony parts, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
