Gonh Be Funky

LP (Item 71568) Charly (UK), Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

A hot little collection of Lee's best New Orleans soul from the late 60s – chunky groovers that really have a lot of punch in the beat, most of which were originally produced by Allen Toussaint! The tracks are nearly all perfect – with a dark, descending groove that sounds unlike anything else ever recorded – and which still stand as some of the best that New Orleans had to offer! Titles include "Ride Your Pony", "Working In The Coal Mine", "Holy Cow", "Do Re Mi", "A Lover Was Born", "Give It Up", "Get Out Of My Life Woman", "Ya Ya", "Go Go Girl", and "Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

The record that forever put George McCrae on the map – and a crossover bit of Miami soul from the 70s with all the key elements of the TK sound firmly in place!

Bohannon

Insides Out
Dakar, 1974. Very Good
A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual!

One of the most fantastic albums by the JBs – a masterpiece of funky jamming, tight instrumentation, and that free yet tight style of the James Brown 70s years!

Hotbed
Stax, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
We used to pass this one up, because it was later, and hence not as good as the other Stax stuff. But then we discovered the nice extended version of "Feel Like Makin' Love", which is a nice solid groover. Also includes the tracks "Use Me", "I'm Gonna Have to Tell ... LP, Vinyl record album
