Bra/Rastafarian Folk Song

7-inch (Item 8021) Janus, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-

Heavy funk from one of the heaviest funk groups of all time! "Bra" is a stone winner from Cymande – slow sloppy bass on the intro, as horns slide into the groove and the track opens up with some weird flanged-out vocals! "Folk Song" is anything but – a strange little groover with a bit of a rasta tinge, and some weird lyrics!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Label has a promo sticker, small index label, and a mark in red ink.)

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.

More Soul, Late 60s. Very Good+
Two funky instrumentals from Chicago – both with a brassy finish, and kind of a slow but hard groove. "My Cherie Amour" is a cover of the big Stevie hit – but done in a funky big band way with some nice instrumental elements leaking through in the mix. "Can't Say ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

A classic if there ever was one – a seminal 70s soul track, covered by many, and featuring the classic "diamond in the back" line! Sad thing is, everyone always thinks it's Curtis Mayfield – but it's William, and even better than Curtis! Part 2 is a nice instrumental ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Virtue, Early 70s. Near Mint-
"Family Man" is the cut here – a hard-vamping groover with some hard and skittish drums that really make the whole cut groove! There's some heavy tambourine shaking away with the drums and bass too – giving the track a jangly little groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A fantastic Muddy Waters track from the early 78rpm years – a tune that's got this unbelivable folding together of fuzzy guitar and hypnotic vocals – almost a trance-like take on Chicago blues, and proof that even at the start, Muddy was onto something new! "Sad Sad Day" is ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
