Watusi/Wallflower

7-inch (Item 59303) Checker, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good

"Watusi" is a classic groover from The Vibrations – a slowly dancing number with a hard-sock groove, one of the group's best early cuts! "Wallflower" is more uptempo, tighter harmonies and a smoother groove – kind of a sing-song playful number, with raw vocals on the lead!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Maroon label Checker pressing.)

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.

Volt, 1971. Very Good
Original single of the funk track "Sang and Dance", backed by one of the Bar-Kays greatest tracks – the totally funky "Son of Shaft"! The cut's a great one, with wild funky wah wah guitar that's been sampled by everyone from Public Enemy to Bomb The Bass! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Capsoul, 1974. Very Good+
The kind of stuff that funky 45 dreams are made of! Both sides are smoking instrumentals with lots of choppy guitar, heavy drums, and cool cool organ. "Hot Grits" has a nice chugging groove, and the band screams "Hot Grits" on the chorus. One of our favorites! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Great stuff – and proof that the guys were on ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
