Never Never Gonna Give Ya Up (long, short)

7-inch (Item 66939) 20th Century, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-
Just Sold Out!

7-inch, Vinyl record


A great single – featuring vocal and instrumental versions of one of Barry's funkiest songs ever! "Never Gonna Give Ya Up" is a stone jammer – very funky drums under a wall of strings, keyboards and Barry's vocals filling up the groove a bit more as the whole thing kicks it nice and lean! (In a 20th Century sleeve. Label has a small sticker.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

20th Century, 1974. Very Good
Funky Barry – always a treat! "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love" is one of Barry's best 70s singles – a back/forth jaunty groover with spaciously soulful vocals, and an incredibly catchy hook! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fast Track, 1974. Very Good+
Classic soul club track, with a hard groove that has a Little Beaver guitar feel to it, and Sugar Billy's deep vocals over the top, asking the musical question in the title. Very groovy, and the album's a tough one to find! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mister Luckee/Ain't That Hateful
Satellite, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A fantastic single from Monk Higgins! "Mister Luckee" is a spare slow hard-grooving single – an organ/sax groover with a slow dance beat that's a bit like "Madison Time" (complete with calls), but pushed over the top by some wild instrumental soloing on organ, and by this ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Event, 1973. Very Good
A great funky instrumental, with lots of moog in it – a little like "Popcorn", but funkier! "Pinch Of Salt" is pretty nice too – uptempo and instrumental, with a nice dose of organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record
20th Century, 1973. Near Mint-
Fantastic electric piano groove! "World Is A Ghetto" is a beautiful instrumental remake of the War hit which sounds cosmically wonderful on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Disco To Go/When You're Gone
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
The title says "disco", but the track is prime P-Funk all the way! Lots of nice bass work at the bottom, and a trio of female vocals keeping things real over the top – and really getting the most out of George Clinton's funky hook! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Theme From King Kong (part 1 & 2)
20th Century, 1976. Near Mint-
A great one! "Theme From King Kong" is a killer cut – one of the last really funky numbers that Barry White cut in the 70s, with a bouncing rolling bassline that's just great, stepping and changing a lot before the rest of the groove comes in to take the single home! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Horse/Love Is All Right
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good
A classic! "The Horse" is a great 60s instrumental groover that virtually set the tone for the next 10 years of brass instrumentation in soul music! The cut's got a raw TSU Tornadoes or Bar-Kays kind of feel, with a horn line right up front, in a catchy rolling groove that never quits! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Steeltown, Early 70s. Very Good+
One of the rare pre-Motown Jackson Five singles, from the Gary, Indiana-based Steel Town label. 7-inch, Vinyl record
