Magic Bird Of Fire/Getaway

12-inch (Item 68103) Salsoul, 1977 — Condition: Very Good+

2 stone stunners from Salsoul Orchestra – both of them great! "Magic Bird" has a very similar feel to Earth Wind & Fire's "Getaway" – stepping out with a soaring and righteous groove. And "Getaway" is a darker tune – lots of bass at the bottom, with these cool keyboards that really set the track off from other stuff by the group.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. In a Salsoul sleeve, which has a bit of wear.)

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.

One of the best tracks ever by First Choice!

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!

Polydor, 1978. Very Good+ (pic cover)
One of Roy's better club groovers from the late 70s – one that begins with an incredibly long conga riff, then rolls into the popped bass and funky vamping of Roy's more uptempo work. The chorus is quite catchy, and the whole thing runs along with plenty of American Promise! 12-inch, Vinyl record
