Bitter Lemon/Foxxy Minor

7-inch (Item 5852) Grits, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

Two sides of straight soul bop by this Chicago tenor legend from the south side! This is the kind of jazz that still gets played in tiny lounges all over the city – not cutting edge, or totally funky, but with a nice deep bottom, and a lot of soul. A great peek at a lost tradition in Chicago jazz – in the tradition of work by classic players like Gene Ammons or Von Freeman!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Date, Mid 60s. Very Good
Stunning – both sides, too! These rare post-Atlantic numbers by The Coasters stand as some of their great work – and they both boast a stop/start bouncing groove that makes them long favorites with the sample crowd. "Soul Pad" is fantastic – a jumpy little groover ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Dakar, 1977. Very Good
"Falling In Love" is a nice sweet soul cut with a slow tempo, and has sort of a Brunswick soul sound to it. We don't know much about these guys, and have never seen an album by them, so this might be the only track out there. 7-inch, Vinyl record
GRC, 1973. Very Good+
Two of the more obscure numbers that Ripple cut at the time of their first album – but both nice! "Willie" is a fast chugging funk number, with the title as the catchy vocal refrain on the chorus. "Get Off" is even better – with fast vamping wah wah guitar, organ ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alvin Cash & The Registers

Twine Time/The Bump
Mar V Lus, 1963. Very Good
What can we say? "Twine Time" is one of the all-time classics – and it's still the best-remembered track by this legendary funky 45 artist. "The Bump" is pretty darn nice, too – and this one's not a 70s bump track, but a harder, 60s one! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Richard Groove Holmes

If I Had A Hammer/1-2-3
Prestige, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Sure, both of these numbers are popular 60s tunes – but Groove does them up very nicely, wailing away on organ in small combo format, turning the hit cuts into hipper soul jazz numbers with a very nice groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Prime late 60s Cannon! "Why" is a great cut – a tune that's almost as catchy as "Mercy Mercy Mercy", but a lot lot better. Dark, slightly funky, and with an obvious political masses that was not lost on the ears of civil rights-era fans! "I'm On My Way" has a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Astrud Gilberto/Quincy Jones

Who Needs Forever/Instrumental Theme 3
Verve, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A great bit of work from Astrud Gilberto – a mellow tune with a really sad feel, recorded for the soundtrack to A Deadly Affair! The track's a great one – with a haunting style that makes us think that Astrud must have had a heck of a broken up inside, in order to be able to sing this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 1973. Very Good+
"Slick" is one of Willie's greatest funk tracks from the 70s – pulled from the soundtrack of the film The Mack, and done with that tight-grooving, super-dope style that forever put Willie in the crates! Lots of nice conga and wah wah guitar! "Mother's Theme" is slower ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Epic, 1979. Near Mint-
A near-forgotten ballad from Michael's Off The Wall album – backed by a number that's a lot nicer! "Get On The Floor" has all the bouncing groove of the best Quincy Jones tracks that went on to become bigger hits – but it's got the added bonus of being less familiar, and an ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 1972. Near Mint-
A totally great funky song by The Jacksons – one that has a real "Shaft"-like feel! The intro on "Looking Through The Windows" is tremendous – and sets up a groove that continues through the entire track, really making for a totally tasty number! 7-inch, Vinyl record
