Wind/Baby Be Mine

7-inch (Item 55979) Fortune, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good-

One of our favorite doo-wop tracks of all time! Nolan Strong and the Diablos do an incredible job with "The Wind" – making the cut slow, deep, sad, and dreamy – in a way that few other doo wop groups could match. "Baby Be Mine" is more of an uptempo number – hard rocking, and sounding a bit like Hank Ballard & The Midnighters.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Purple label pressing.)

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.

Both tracks are nice – and both of them are hard boogaloo cuts in the best Alvin Cash mode! "Alvin's Boogaloo" has a stop and grunt groove – kind of like "The Twine", really rolling into the beat! "Good Timing" is more of a rollicking Northern number ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soulful Strut/Country Slicker Joe
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good-
Massive work from Young Holt Unlimited! "Soulful Strut" is still one of the group's best grooves – a fierce little tune that jogs, jumps, and has some wickedly funky piano – all that, and sampled by the Beasties, too! "Country Slicker Joe" is an LP cut, and has a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Inner City, Early 70s. Good
Sublime harmony soul – written and produced by Leroy Hutson! "This Love" has a spare, spacey sound – tripping along in a great mellow vein, with the vocals cascading over the top of the cut! "I'll Never Forget You" is a bit less well-placed, but it's also a great ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good-
One of Aretha's best! There's a massive old school break on the intro to "Rock Steady" – but even without that bit, the song's a real winner – ripping along with massive soulful grooves! 7-inch, Vinyl record
