Strictly Breaks Vol 1

LP (Item 549344) Strictly Breaks, 1960s/1970s — Condition: Very Good-

The fantastic first volume in this now-legendary series of compilations! If you know the legend, you'll know that the series uses original tracks sampled for hip hop cuts – with information on the original and final source of the sample. Sort of takes all the fun out of figuring it out, but how can you miss – with tracks like "Morning" by Cal Tjader, "You Can't Turn me Away" by Sylvia Striplin, "Rain Dance" by Jeff Lorber, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Joe Williams, "In The Mood" by Tyrone Davis, "Garden Of Peace" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "The Long Wait" by Hawaii Five 0, "The Masquerade Is Over" by David Porter, and "Summer In the City" by Quincy Jones!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover is wavy from moisture, with a partially unglued top seam.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Savoy, 1950s/2006. Near Mint- 2LP
The Savoy jazz catalog gets the remix tradition – following nicely in the mode of similar projects on Verve or Blue Note! The work here is all pulled from classic bop sessions of the late 40s and 1950s – key tracks that defined the sound of Savoy back in the day, but cut down here to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
The birth of Miami soul, and a beautifully done document of the rare Deep City label – home to Willie Clarke, Clarence Reid, and Betty Wright in the years before Alston and TK Records!

Hip To The Lip
Hip, 1997. Very Good+
Nice batch of 9 cuts for the funky clubbers, with a mix of soul and jazz cuts that includes "Wings of a Horse" by Ellen McIlwaine, "What's Happening Here" by Natural Four, "Speak No Evil" by Dadisi Komolafe, "Skindo Le Le" by Viva Brazil, "Go For The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay/Up Front, Late 50s/1968. Very Good
Although this is sort of a cheapo budget issue that looks unofficial, it's a decent compilation of some of The Dells' early doo-wop sides for Vee Jay, just about all of which are pretty tough to find on vinyl in any format. The group's work for Vee Jay was some of their best, and this set includes ... LP, Vinyl record album

War

Galaxy
MCA, 1977. Very Good
A massive jammer from War – and a record that brought the group to a whole new generation of listeners – as well as a good number of later fans who discovered some of these jams in the club! The groove here isn't disco, but this tightening up of War's sweet jamming vibe – almost ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fleetwood Mac

Tusk
Warner, 1979. Very Good 2LP
Overblown for its time, and almost crushed under its own weight – but a record that's lasted surprisingly well over the years! Titles include "Sara", "Tusk", "Walk A Thin Line", "That's Enough For Me", "Brown Eyes", "Save Me A Place" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Withers

Still Bill
Sussex, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Bill Withers' second album – even more wonderful than the first!
