Dance With Daddy G

LP (Item 60635) Checker, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+
A pretty hard rocking set of soul instrumentals from Gene Barge – a sax soloist with a honking King Curtis type sound, and a talent who was also doing a fair bit of producing and arranging for Chess during the 60s! This set is one of the few that Gene cut on his own, and is a loping set of tunes with his sax up front, and larger group grooving in different modes based around teen dances of the time. Titles include "The Monkey Time", "Twine Time", "Fine Twine", "The Jerk", "The In Crowd", "I Feel Fine", "It's All Over Now", and "Come See About Me".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono light blue "checker piece" label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and light wear.)

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.

Vibrations

Watusi
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good
Hard grooving early work by The Vibrations – recorded before their sides at Okeh, with a style of rough-hewn soul that's very much in keeping with their hit "The Watusi". The album's got plenty of great numbers, very much in a Chicago dance mode of the 60s – and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Parliament

Motor Booty Affair
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
The Mothership goes under water – as George Clinton and crew groove away nicely on this water-themed set of tracks designed to raise Atlantis from the deep! The overall sound is perhaps not as totally perfect as some of the earlier records, but the P-Funk machine is still in full effect ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funkadelic

Uncle Jam Wants You
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the crowning moments of genius from the great George Clinton – a record that has Funkadelic really finding their groove, in the same way that Parliament were helping push underground funk into both the clubs and the mainstream – while also showing that the P-Funk empire can jam ... LP, Vinyl record album

Parliament

Chocolate City
Casablanca, 1975. Very Good+
An amazing album that's probably one of the most unified albums that George Clinton ever recorded! The band's rawer style has been firmed up and economized – but a lot of the best elements are still in place, including a strange approach to vocals that has male and female voices interacting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mandrill

Mandrill Is
Polydor, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A fantastic bit of hard jamming funk from Mandrill – rougher than later work, with a mix of soul, jazz, and Latin influences, all coming together in a mode that reminds us of early 70s LA groups like War or El Chicano. The best element of the album's the mix of keyboards, bass-driven rhythms ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus featuring Chaka Khan

Rufusized
ABC, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Funk, soul, jazz, and plenty more – all wrapped up into this 70s masterpiece from Rufus – the kind of record that not only never gets old, but which still has folks wondering how the group could have gotten things this perfect all these many years later! Chaka Khan and the group are in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes

Wake Up Everybody
Philadelphia International, 1975. Very Good+
Teddy Pendergrass and crew get a bit more political than on earlier releases, and adopt the righteous bubbling soul groove that had put the O'Jays over the top a few years earlier – with incredible results! The title cut – "Wake Up Everybody" – would prove to be a great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Charles & Betty Carter

Ray Charles & Betty Carter
ABC, 1961. Very Good+
A classic album of soul duets – and one of the deeper records cut by Betty during the 60s! The arrangements are by the great Marty Paich, and although there's some singers in the background, the overall sound is still pretty nice and soulful. Betty's high voice works well with Ray's raspy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of the great records made by the cool French jazzy vocal group that included Ward Swingle and Christine LeGrand, and which did stuff that was much more straightforwardly jazzy than the semi-classical work of the Swingle Singers. This LP's got them backed by Jerome Richardson and his quartet, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

GO
Blue Note, 1962. Very Good+
A seminal set of work from the Blue Note scene of the 60s – a record that's not just noteworthy for its role in helping return tenorist Dexter Gordon to the spotlight, but also for the fantastic work of pianist Sonny Clark in the quartet! Sonny's in wonderful form throughout – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+
Late 60's issue of the album previously released as The Village Caller, recorded in the early part of the decade. The set's funky vibes classic – and a landmark side from Detroit vibist Johnny Lytle! The set's one of the purest examples of Johnny's great early groove – a tightly ... LP, Vinyl record album
