Paradise (long version, short version)

7-inch (Item 766031) Atlantic, 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

A catchy bass heavy number with serious dancefloor appeal that doesn't sacrifice any of it's slick modern soul production, in our opinion, the best cut off Change's sophomore LP, Miracles, when the group was still working in a post disco, 80s groove mode that didn't betray the fact that they were largely a studio creation.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo.)

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.

A rock-solid set from the Drifters, maybe their best for Atlantic in the 60s! The album's heavy on those lightly loping tunes that the group virtually invented a few years before – that slightly-sweetened approach to soul that became known as the uptown sound and which still had The Drifters ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of the blueprints of hip hop!

Great small combo work by Roberta Flack, recorded early in her career, when she was still one of the hippest things around – and it's among her best records! Roberta's really come into her own as vocalist at this point and solidifying here personal style – with that clear tone and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Volt, 1971. Very Good
Original single of the funk track "Sang and Dance", backed by one of the Bar-Kays greatest tracks – the totally funky "Son of Shaft"! The cut's a great one, with wild funky wah wah guitar that's been sampled by everyone from Public Enemy to Bomb The Bass! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Capsoul, 1974. Very Good+
The kind of stuff that funky 45 dreams are made of! Both sides are smoking instrumentals with lots of choppy guitar, heavy drums, and cool cool organ. "Hot Grits" has a nice chugging groove, and the band screams "Hot Grits" on the chorus. One of our favorites! 7-inch, Vinyl record
