(€2.82 || £2.37 || ¥335) (approx.)

Farrakhan with musical backing by a small combo that includes keyboards, guitar, and drums. Given that the man was a nightclub singer in his early days, he's actually got the background to handle a record of singing – and he's working here in a style that's definitely got traces of calypso, which is what he must have been doing when he was in the clubs.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Sire, 1983. Very Good- (pic cover)
What can we say? Despite the stupid appearance of the band, "White Horse" was a classic breakdance/electro track that crossed over so big it had kids in Kansas running out to by parachute pants and squares of linoleum to play along with the kids in the Bronx. Despite that runaway hit ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Personal, 1983. Sealed (pic cover)
The great electro classic – and one that will make you pop so much your shoulders will get sore! The single features the long "Din Daa Daa remix" – with lots of nice parts that drop out, and have the chorus popping out with great isolated sound. Also features the dub mix, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

One Love/Superman
TK, 1977. Very Good+
A guilty pleasure! Celi Bee's "Superman" has to be one of the campiest disco cuts of the 70s, but heck, we just love it! The cut's a loving breathy ode to the man in blue – laid out over some compelling dancefloor beats and a pretty funky groove! Single also features the original ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+
Hardly a disco tune from Side Effect – and instead a nicely jazzy bit of club, served up in the best Wayne Henderson-directed mode of the group's Fantasy years! The tune's got a brassy finish that goes well with the lyrics – and it's backed by the even-better "I'm A Winner", ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Pic Hit, 1984. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Obscure mid 80s work by The Whatnauts – recorded after "Help is On The Way". The first two tracks are more in an 80s groove/funk mode – not really the best style for the group – but the cut "All I Need" is really a gem! The track's a smooth mellow love song ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
I Wanna Boogie With You (voc, inst)
Dakar, 1981. Very Good+
A great bit of boogie on Dakar – one of the latest singles we've ever seen on the label, and a unique effort from Charlie Singleton and the wonderfully-named Stargasm! The tune snaps along with a great little indie groove – spare, bassy, and with some warm keyboards behind Charlie's ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fantasy, 1982. Very Good+
Early work from Detroit techno legend Juan Atkins! The single features some rare pre-Fantasy work from Atkins – an early take on "Cosmic Cars", and the more grooving "The Line". "Cars" has a cold, stark electronic feel – and "The Line" still has ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Welcome Aboard/Strange
Unlimited Gold, 1981. Very Good
The great Webster Lewis joins Love Unlimited Orchestra for this excellent later track from the group – the slowly funky "Welcome Aboard", a tight mellow track with an excellent stepping groove. Darn hard to find on LP – and even better on 12" single! 12-inch, Vinyl record
