Instant Death/A Little Wes

7-inch (Item 59219) Atlantic, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

"Instant Death" is an excellent little groover from Eddie – fast, tight, and with a mad Varitone romp that fits perfectly with the 70s funk tip of the cut! It's matched by the super-dope "A Little Wes", which has a clear inspiration from Wes Montgomery, and a slick take on his excllent guitar sound to boot!  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Mister Luckee/Ain't That Hateful
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic single from Monk Higgins! "Mister Luckee" is a spare slow hard-grooving single – an organ/sax groover with a slow dance beat that's a bit like "Madison Time" (complete with calls), but pushed over the top by some wild instrumental soloing on organ, and by this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

M-Pac, Late 60s. Near Mint-
2 sides of raw bluesy soul from this oft-overlooked Chicago singer. Nice deep sound, in keeping with the usual M-Pac/One-Der-Ful material, and good production by Otis Hayes and Monk Higgins. 7-inch, Vinyl record
One Der Ful, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Some of the deepest soul ever to be cut in Chicago. "That's How It Is" has stunning vocals by Clay, with production that sounds more like it's from Memphis than from the south side. "Show Place" is a pretty good hard uptempo groover, too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fast Track, 1974. Very Good+
Classic soul club track, with a hard groove that has a Little Beaver guitar feel to it, and Sugar Billy's deep vocals over the top, asking the musical question in the title. Very groovy, and the album's a tough one to find! 7-inch, Vinyl record
