Jamaica This Morning/Fuquawi

7-inch (Item 56967) Stax, Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

Obscure later work from Booker T! "Jamaica This Morning" has a slow grooving feel with plenty of "island" in the mix – guitar getting a bit rough in the middle, but mostly sweet organ bubbling along. "Fuquawi" is rougher and harder – kind of chugging and driving, although not as all out funky.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In a Stax sleeve, with some wear and aging.)

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.

Slim Jenkin's Place/Groovin'
Stax, 1967. Very Good+
Two lesser known tracks from Booker T – but both nice! "Slim Jenkins" has kind of a slight western tinge on the guitar – stepping around a saloon floor with the kind of edgey approach you'd expect from a guy named "Slim"! "Groovin" is a nice instrumental ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Booker T & The MGs

Green Onions/Behave Yourself
Stax, Early 60s. Very Good-
Booker T's classic "Green Onions" – a tune that was actually composed by accident, but went onto become his trademark track! This might be the second single for the song – which was originally a b-side – and it's backed here with the mellow and introspective "Behave ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, 1966. Very Good+
A great early funky number from Johnnie Taylor – with a groove that's almost ripe for sampling, given the chunky beats – but which is maybe even better, because Taylor's fantastic vocals keep getting in the way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sure, Rufus was in the grip of "funky fever" at the time, but "Funky Mississippi" is a great cut! The intro alone is worth the price of the single, and has a nice deep heavy funk groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funky funky Rufus! This one's a monster – with great drums, rolling bass, and riffing guitar that scratches up the whole dark track to keep it nice and funky! Rufus' vocals hardly get in the way, and the cut's one of his funkiest ever! 7-inch, Vinyl record
