Glide/The Real Thing

$7.99 ...

12-inch, Vinyl record

(€7.54 || £6.34 || ¥896) (approx.)

Killer funky cuts, back to back! "Glide" is an upbeat dancefloor tune that was one of the group's most popular numbers, backed here with another uptempo groover that's got lots of wah wah guitar moving really fast, and slick flanged-up vocals that groove in the band's best late mode.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

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
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
AVI, 1980. Very Good (pic cover)
Back in the day, Chicago never had much of a rap scene – which is why it was so easy for Chicago radio DJ Casper to score big with this little groover on the AVI label! The cut's actually not bad as sort of a funky clubby track – and Casper's rapping style reminds us a lot of Gary Byrd ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1977. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Doobie-doo doobie-doo! One of the catchiest Roy Ayers dancefloor tracks ever – a bassy bumping thumper that wonderfully skirts the line between clubby and funky! The track's got female vocals singing along with the hook – all in a mode that's quite similar to the most uptempo work by ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Stax/Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+
Earlier funk from The Bar-Kays – recorded back in the earlier part of the 70s when the group were recording for Stax, but issued here to cash in on the group's later fame on Mercury! The sound here is surprisingly like the group's later work – still in the heavy funk mode of their Stax ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
AVC Records, 1984. Very Good (pic cover)
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, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fantasy, 1976. Very Good
Promo-only single, featuring this later Fantasy club groover! "I Don't Know" is one of the few lasting tracks from Spiders Webb – but it's a tasty fast funk number that still holds up to a jazz dance crowd. 12-inch, Vinyl record
MAW, 1995. Very Good
The first release on their MAW imprint, from Kenny Dope ("Ken") and Little Louie Vega ("lou"), with a great percolating cut on the a-side, that epitomizes the sound we called "underground" around here, and a harmonica laced club stomper on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1980. Very Good
A killer dancefloor stormer that never gets old, not even after it was illegally sampled by Black Box. The cut's a great one, and is the record that will forever be Loleatta Holloway's most remembered – and for good reason! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Reprise, 1991. Near Mint-

Uniwave (Canada), 1980. Very Good

Fantasy, 1976. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Promo-only single, featuring this later Fantasy club groover! "I Don't Know" is one of the few lasting tracks from Spiders Webb – but it's a tasty fast funk number that still holds up to a jazz dance crowd. 12-inch, Vinyl record
