Nearness Of You/Moondust

7-inch (Item 649311) King, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

(In a King sleeve.)

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.

Early work by James – nice and soulful! "Man's Man's Man's World" is without introduction – as the song's one of James' biggest hits from the time. "Is It Yes" is equally great – and done in a similar deep soul mellow approach, a bit less over the top, but ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Not the classic version of this well-known tune, but a rare funky take from The Coasters – done during their brief late span at King Records! The groove is great – nice and romping, and graced with their excellent vocals – and the whole thing even includes a bit of a funky flute ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Beautiful soul from The Godfather, recorded in the period immediately after he discovered the choppy choppy guitar riff on the downbeat! Both parts swing hard hard hard, and the band is as tight as a pair of trousers after Thanksgiving! 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Two nice ones! "Cry Cry Cry" is a beautiful tear-jerker – produced with strings and orchestral parts behind James, and stunning raw vocals right up front. The flip's an instrumental, with a very horn-driven groove, and a smoking organ solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Near Mint-
An undisputed groover! The track's a killer uptempo one from James' later years on King – and it's got this amazing beat that snaps along at a full deep stride. Very nice stuff, and the kind of tight grooving that would show up later in his work with the JBs – done here earlier, with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

King, Early 60s. Very Good
"Prisoner Of Love" is a version of the 50s pop hit – done by James in a style that's still pretty raw, despite the string-heavy backings! "Choo Choo" is a honking instrumental, with a tight R&B groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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
