Ain't It Hell Up In Harlem/Don't It Feel Good To Be Free

7-inch (Item 59217) Motown, 1973 — Condition: Very Good
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

2 nice ones from the Hell Up In Harlem soundtrack! "Ain't It Hell Up In Harlem" is a killer vocal number – right on a par with the best of the blacksploitation themes, like "Are You Man Enough?" or "Across 110th Street" – sung superbly by Edwin, with tight arrangements by Fonce Mizell and Freddie Perren. "Don't It Feel Good" is sweeter, but still a nice little number – catchy and a bit righteous!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Ric Tic, Late 60s. Very Good
A Northern Soul classic – and one of Edwin's greatest cuts ever! The tune's got a hip, high stepping dancefloor beat, with lyrics by Edwin that are really cool, a soul take on James Bond, with a lot of twists and turns in the lyrics that are nice and clever, and which give the track a mod ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Real Thing/Peninsula
Elektra, 1977. Near Mint-
A great little track from Sergio – "The Real Thing" is a funky cover of the Stevie Wonder tune by the same name, done in a tight smooth 70s jazz funk mode, a style that's keep the song fresh for many years to come! "Peninsula" is more of a fusion jamming track – a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Scorpio (mono, stereo)
Sussex, Early 70s. Very Good+
Dennis Coffey's classic breakbeat track, with an intro that's been sampled more times that we can count – and a groove that's much harder to find on wax these days than it should be! Excellent stuff, with a choppy hard guitar groove, tight drums, and a nice rumbling conga that runs ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
