Soulero/Feel Like Making Love

7-inch (Item 70984) CTI, 1974 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

2 early electric numbers from the great Bob James! "Solero" is a 70s funk remake of "Bolero" – done in a similar building-up kind of style, but with floating keyboards that give it a spooky edge! "Feel Like Makin Love" is a sublime reading of Eugene McDaniels' wonderful composition – done with Fender Rhodes just dripping in air, and a sweet mellow groove that's perfect for the tune!

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.

Shorter versions of two tunes from Freddie's wonderful First Light album! The cut "First Light" starts with a swirl of percussion and horns – then rolls into a wonderful melodic groove that's one of his most memorable tunes since "Little Sunflower"! "Yesterday's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Westbound, Late 60s. Very Good+
Dang! "I'll Bet You" is great stuff, and one of the best of the early Funkadelic cuts – with a long extended drumbreak intro, which was sampled more than once back in the day! Excellent stuff, and with a hard fuzzy groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1976. Very Good-
Killer funkiness by the JBs! The track's a bit later than their early classics – but don't let that put you off, as it's still pretty darn great, races away like a house on fire, with a very hard ripping groove! Both parts are t-a-s-t-y – and worth the two-part groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, Late 60s. Very Good+
Killer funky stuff from JB, and just about everything you'd want from him: hard grooves, heavy politics, and lots of nice funky playing by the band! Also the inspiration for the great Talkin' Loud label! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Curtom, 1978. Very Good-
"Where Did Love Go" is a great late track from Leroy! The tune kicks off with a tight midtempo groover – drums snapping nicely underneath some smooth production, setting the scene perfectly for Leroy's great vocals – always a treat, and perfectly suited to the rising/falling ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Milestone, 1975. Very Good-
Two of the best tracks ever by the great Johnny Hammond! "Los Conquistadores" is a seminal cut from the legendary Johnny Hammond – a key number off his classic Larry Mizell-produced album Gears – with a vibe that equally ties together jazz, soul, funk, and club – at a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Wand, Late 60s. Very Good+
Two excellent numbers from this extremely talented Chicago vocal group! The Esquires had harmonies that most other groups would die for – and they groove massively on "You Got The Power", a swinging uptempo number with that loping sound that the group pushed big on their first big ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Smash, Late 60s. Very Good+
Brilliant baroque rock! "Walk Away Renee" is a pop masterpiece – one that you may already know – and "I Haven't Got The Nerve" is equally wonderful – with a haunting electric harpsichord hook on the intro, then a great rock harmony vocal that we really love, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
