Magic Bird Of Fire/Getaway

12-inch (Item 68103) Salsoul, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


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.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Salsoul, 1979. Very Good
There's probably no better way to describe the Instant Funk groove than by saying "slap slap" to the bass player – but this tune goes that sound one better by serving up a really catchy lyric along with the groove! The track's one of the group's tightest from the time, and has a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1981. Very Good-
A massive dancefloor anthem – and one of the best cuts ever from Leroy Burgess! Leroy cut "I Know You Will" with Greg Carmichael – who seems to give the cut some of the funky electronic undercurrents of his Red Greg work – but it's Leroy who really sends the whole thing ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

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

Sire, 1981. Very Good+ (pic cover)
The super-huge hit – done up here in the full 12" version, which also features the cut morphing into "Where Did Our Love Go". 2 60s soul covers for the price of one! 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
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
