Great work from the team of Maurice and Mac – an obscure late 60s hard-soul team with an approach that was a lot like James & Bobby Purify! This one's even better – as the record was produced and played by Rick Hall and the Fame studios staff – who give both sides a fantastic deep soul approach that really suits the great vocals of the pair! "Why Don't You Try Me" has a soaring organ at the beginning, and a nice rolling groove that features Maurice and Mac trading off on the vocal parts!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a Chess/Checker sleeve.)

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.

Checker, Mid 60s. Very Good
Nice nice obscure soul single on Chess! "Boo Ga Loo Baby" is a perfect example of the late 60's sock boogaloo soul style, and it's sung beautifully by Tommy & Cleve, who both have voices that range up there with Mel & Tim for greatness. Gene Redd produced both sides, and they're ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

You'll Miss Me (When I'm Gone)/Don't Jump
Checker, Late 60s. Very Good
2 great duets from the team of Fontella and Bobby – one of the lesser known pairs to record in the style for Chess! Both cuts are hard-hitting, sock-soul numbers – really grooving with a blend of southern deep and Chicago hard – coming off well in a mode that brings out the best ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of the greatest "Happy Birthday" songs of all times – a male/female harmony number, sung in a sad, slow style that makes the tune much more of a tear-jerker than you might think from the title! The track's one of the greatest ever by the Tuneweavers, and it's backed by a nice ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Avco, 1975. Near Mint-
Two great cuts from this oft-overlooked east coast vocal group, who, at their best moments, could rank with the best of them. This is definitely one of their best moments, and "Extra-Ordinary People" could rank with some of the Stylistics best from the time. Their cover of the Eddie ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Spring, 1974. Very Good+
Garland Green's great remake of this classic! He sings it with a nice deep Chicago soul style, augmented by some of the slightly modern/southern style production of the Spring label. "You & I Go Good" is even better, though – a sweetly stepping number that follows in the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
