High Steppin Hip Dressin Fella (voc, inst)

12-inch (Item 73624) Unlimited Gold, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch


An excellent groover from Love Unlimited – proof that neither they, nor Barry White, had lost their touch! The tune's got a snapping bassline that really grooves the track right away – pulling in some soaring strings, but still keeping up the beat as the vocals come in. The instrumental still has a bit of chorus vocals, but seems to add in a bit of piano to fill things out!  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Paisley Park, 1987. Very Good- (pic cover)
Sure, the politics seem a bit silly now – but the track's still one of Prince's last really compelling hits. It's got a totally infectious hook, a spare Timmy Thomas-ish beat, and a strangely captivating vocal that really sticks with us. The flip's a bit silly – a 10 minute extended ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of the biggest tracks by this uptempo LA soul combo – served up here on an original 12" single, in a nice extended version that's 7 minutes long! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Prism, 1982. Near Mint-
Nice post disco 80s club track, with a very New York sound, with elements of commercial soul and 80s groove combining at a mid tempo pace, with a nice dubby mix on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Spring, 1979. Very Good+
An excellent number from the Fatback Band, cut at the time they were transitioning to being called just plain old Fatback, and slicking up their funk sound with a slightly more commercial approach, which on this single means a slightly disco sound that puts this nice midtempo jam right in the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Audika, Mid 80s. Near Mint- (pic cover)
An avant dancefloor work of genius by Arthur Russell – the frantically beat-heavy, sunny and psychedelic single "Let's Go Swimming" that's from 1986, but it's really a unique piece of work that exists out of place and time – here in 3 distinctive versions along with a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

What can we say? Just try to imagine what hip hop would be like today if this record never existed.The foundation of the sound that would rule hip hop throughout the 90s. Nice production from Dre, back when he was dropping more funk-sample based tracks, and plenty of attitude on the mic from Cube, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Geffen, 1995. Very Good+
The first solo single from the Genius after Wu-tang. OK, he did solo stuff on Cold Chillin, but we're not really countin' that. The verses on "Labels" string together the names of most of the larger hip hop labels for a tale of industry rule #4080. 12-inch, Vinyl record
