Stroke/Cadillac Jack

7-inch (Item 6915) Chess/Blue Chip, Late 60s/1970s — Condition: Near Mint-

Funky late 60s work from the great Andre Williams – reissued here on a Chess Blue Chip pressing from the 70s! "The Stroke" is one of Andre's greatest numbers – a slapping funky groover with twangy guitar over bass over drums, all supporting a groove that's got Andre talking his way through the tune, bad-rapping in that unique style that's always made him one of our favorites! "Cadillac Jack" is a bit slower and chuggier – with a similar style, but done in more of a bluesy mode.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue Chip Series pressing in the printed sleeve.)

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.

Checker, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Madness from Andre – a side that you don't often hear on record! "Mrs Mother" is kind of a tongue in cheek dedication to mothers everywhere – done with Andre speaking over the top of a sad and bluesy strings-drenched backing! A nice one to buy for your mom in May! "Cadi ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two hard driving cuts by The Radiants, both with arrangements by Charles Stepney, and a nice fuzzy soul sound in the best Cadet mode. "Hold On" is the better cut, and has a nice guitar in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Great work by The Radiants – arranged here by Charles Stepney, with a tripped-out sound that's like the best late 60s work by The Dells! "Ida Mae Foster" is a real bit of psychedelic soul, with guitars coming down on the beat, fuzzing things up along with a really loud cello, while ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

2 nice numbers from Tony Clarke – best known for "The Entertainer", but a really great singer who cut some fine singles for Chess! "Poor Boy" is as sad as it sounds – a downbeat number that has Tony singing in a good mix of deep and sweet styles! "Fugitive ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Do It Baby/I Shot The Sheriff
Paula, 1975. Near Mint-
"Do It Baby" is probably the best-ever track by Redd Holt, with a stone cold breakbeat in the intro that was sampled by BDP and others, and some great grooves all the way through. His version of "I Shot The Sheriff" is pretty fantastically funky, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
