I Got A Sweet Tooth/If I Were A Strong Man

7-inch (Item 64283) Stanson, Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

2 sides of trippy soul from King Solomon – a bit bluesy, but with some nice touches that open it up a bit more, and which give the tracks a slightly psychedelic edge.  © 1996-2020, 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.

In The Bottle/The Affair
Turbo, 1974. Very Good+
Great groovy stuff – Brother to Brother's fabulous cover of the Gil Scott-Heron track "The Bottle" – done here with a cool flanged vocal chorus on the lyrics, and a tight jazzy groove that reproduces the feel of the original, but adds some soulful female vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1972. Very Good+
2 of James Brown's best duets – on one original funky 45! "What My Baby Needs Now" is a sweet soul groove, with a nice swinging midtempo pace. "This Guy-Girl" is probably the most soulful version of the Bacharach track you'll ever hear! Both sides nice, and not on any ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, Early 70s. Very Good+
Sure, Rufus was in the grip of "funky fever" at the time, but "Funky Mississippi" is a great cut! The intro alone is worth the price of the single, and has a nice deep heavy funk groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Par Lo, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Classic! Way before he was reduced to a million bad stereotypes of New Orleans music, Aaron was a supremely excellent soul singer – and this amazing single will always be one of his greatest legacies! Sure, you've heard "Tell It Like It Is" a million times on the radio – but ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atco, Early 70s. Very Good+
A great cut from Dionne's harder sister! Dee Dee's cover of "Suspicious Minds" is pretty nice, but the really great cut here is "I'm Glad" – as it begins with a firm horn blast over drumbreaks, then rolls into a warm soul vocal that's very much in a Sweet Inspirations ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Deep deep soul from Shirley – a great singer who only ever cut singles, but who had a voice that could knock out Aretha and Fontella Bass put together! Half A Man got a sad, slow building approach. Both tracks were supervised on production by Jo Armstead, and done in a totally righteous ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Riverside, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Hard-hitting soul from this rare Lou Courtney side project! "This Thing Called Love" really blasts the tune with a heavy bottom – snapping along a dirty funky undercurrent that's really surprising – while rough harmony vocals bristle with energy over the top! "Tomorrow&q ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Gordy, 1971. Very Good+
Two heavy psychedelic soul classics from the man who very nearly invented the genre, Norm Whitfield, working with his protege vocal group the Undisputed Truth in his full on rumbling funk, massive wall of sound mode! 7-inch, Vinyl record
