7-inch, Vinyl record

Hmmm....we're not sure if this is the same Harlem River Drive that recorded with Eddie Palmieri, but we've got to assume that they are, as we can't imagine 2 bands using the same name at the same time, and both apparently from New York. "Need You" has also got a sound that's kind of a progression from the famous album by the group, with a shift from Latin funk to Latin disco – in the kind of groove that Eddie Drennon was moving to at the same time. The track's a vocal groover, with a nice catchy soul hook. "Overtime" is a bit more straight funk – but with a heavy bottom sound that's also in the Harlem River Drive style.  © 1996-2024, 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.

Arista, 1976. Near Mint-
Two uptempo sides by this ex-singer of The Charimen Of The Board. David Van De Pitte arranged, and the record's got a bit of a modern soul sound – which suits the General's unique voice just right! 7-inch, Vinyl record

South Shore Commission

Free Man (orig, disco mix)
Wand, 1975. Near Mint-
A bona-fide club classic – and the standout classic of the South Shore Commission! The tune's got a stepping soulful approach that's early Philly club at its best – the early days of disco, when there was still plenty of soul in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Scorpion, 1974. Near Mint-
Harmony soul from the Chicago 70s underground – 2 nice tracks from the Newsounds, who may or may not be the same group that recorded for All Platinum around the same time. "Bet You Never Thought About It" is a nicely stepping tune with a bubbling Chicago soul groove – and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Curtom, 1968. Near Mint-
Very nice stuff by this great Chicago soul group! "Stay Close To Me" is a beautiful Curtis Mayfield composition, with a hook that you'll recognize immediately! "I Made A Mistake" is nice, too – and represents the best period of the group! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Buddah, 1970. Near Mint-
Wild stuff from the Stairsteps! "Because I Love You" is an incredibly spare track, with male vocals in the lead, and more of a rock-oriented Joe Cocker-ish backing – but it works quite well, and shows that the band's foray into crossover styles had its great moments. The flipside's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Rainbow's End, 1978. Near Mint-
Two sides of trippy blues from Cicero Blake – not as hard and heavy as some of his earlier funk work, but in a nice style that seems to be inspired by Johnny Guitar Watson! "Be Good To Me" is our favorite, as the track starts with a great spoken bit – Cicero talking to some ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
