7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

What a cool little single! This 4 track ep is presented by Kelloggs, the cereal company, as a tie-in with the Banana Splits TV show. It's got some really great numbers that range in style from trippy to groovy, and maybe a little bit funky. The track "Doin The Banana Split" was purportedly written by Barry White adn features a slightly funky groove, and a hip male soul vocal and heavy instrumentation. We simply cannot believe kid show music was at one point this crazy and incredible! Other cuts have a groovy sunshine pop feel – a bit off-beat, kind of trippy, and almost somewhere near Millenium or Love Generation.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Cat, 1975. Very Good
Gwen's biggest hit ever! "Rocking Chair" probably blared out of more AM radios during the 70s than every Dickie Goodman single combined – but it's still a great track. The flipside's a mellow soul number, and almost seems to be an answer to Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand The ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

David Rockingham Trio

Soulful Chant/Joy-De-Vie
Josie, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Organ groover! "Soulful Chant" is a stunner from David – who seems to be working overtime on the keys of the organ for this one, playing fast, loud, and free in full-on mode, just to keep up with the bass and drums, which are pounding away for dear life! "Joy" is a nice ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Invictus, Early 70s. Very Good+
Fantastic 70s soul! 2 of the best cuts ever from the Lamont Dozier years on Invictus – all handled by the Holland Dozier Holland team, with vocals by Lamont. "Don't Leave Me" is a killer track from Lamont's Love & Beauty album – done here in an instrumental version, with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Twist/Teardrops On Your Letter
King, Early 60s. Very Good-
Two of Hank's early classics! "The Twist" is his first version of the tune – the one that Chubby Checker and others ripped off for bigger cash! "Teardrops On Your Letter" is done here in the first, original version. 7-inch, Vinyl record
