High Steppin Hip Dressin Fella (voc, inst)

12-inch (Item 73624) Unlimited Gold, 1979 — Condition: Very Good

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!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Label has a name in pen on both sides.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Warner, 1987. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A great little cut from Sherrick – an overlooked Warner soul singer of the mid 80s! "Just Call" is an incredibly catchy number – one that's free from most mainstream soul cliches of the time – and which has a sly little glide over lightly dancing beats and keys. ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Chrysalis, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)
The mid 80s... when a song like this passed for politics in music! Forget the stupid message lyrics, though, and remember that Hardcastle cracked a lot of scenes with the cut – forging kind of a pop-political-street beat kind of groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)
What can we say? Despite the stupid appearance of the band, "White Horse" was a classic breakdance/electro track that crossed over so big it had kids in Kansas running out to by parachute pants and squares of linoleum to play along with the kids in the Bronx.

Manhattan, 1985. Very Good+
Two souped-up electro groovers from Bernard Wright – produced by Marcus Miller & Lenny White, with more than enough breaks and pops to make a factory of linoleum groover! "Yo Nard" is probably the best – as it's over the top electro with a poppy edge. 12-inch, Vinyl record
