Horse

LP (Item 6509) Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

A funky instrumental classic – with a groove that was copied by a huge amount of other groups! Cliff and crew take the funky 45 sound into the mainstream – vamping and comping in tight choppy grooves that were perfect for dances like The Horse, The Jerk, and some of the other harder numbers of the time. The title cut – "The Horse" – is a killer, and the record's filled with a number of other tracks that have a similar feel and flavor. Some cuts have vocals, mostly in the hip shouted style, but a number of the cuts are instrumental. Titles include "Judge Baby, I'm Back", "The Horse", "The Camel", "Burning Desire", "Love Is All Right", "Let's Have A Good Time", and "The Mule". (Cover has ring & edge wear and some splitting on the top seam.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Gordy, 1971. Very Good
