Native New Yorker (disco version)/Easy Come, Easy Go/Hold De Mota Down

12-inch (Item 81509) RCA, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch


One of Odyssey's real classics – a smooth little groove with a classy club sound that never gets old! "Native New Yorker" mixes soaring strings with some great funky rhythms – all held together by tinkling piano that stands out nicely in the mix, and which almost makes the cut sound like a lost Barry White number! The vocals are great too – warm and hook-heavy, with a really familiar kind of appeal! (White label promo.)  © 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.

Two nice ones from the smooth soul team of Grey & Hanks! "Dancin" is an uptempo groover – as you'd guess by the title – but with a smooth sound that keeps the proceedings nice and soulful. "How Can You Life" is a mellower tune – a nice little stepper with ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

A nice 80s groove moment from Pleasure's Give It Up LP, cut well after their more well known jazz funk years at Fantasy, but a nice, tight piece of very bass heavy commercial funk, with some nice synth touches, kind of in the mode of early 80s Cameo or Dazz Band. 12-inch, Vinyl record

It's the early 80s and War's still going strong, with the disco influenced title track to their Outlaw LP, and the slower, spacier number on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record

A hard-to-find single that features 2 of Heatwave's best tracks! "Ain't No Half Steppin" is from their first LP – and it's a great little funk number that was sampled to big big fame by Big Daddy Kane, and which has become a funky favorite ever since! "Mind Blowing ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
