Release Yourself (original, dub)

12-inch (Item 82849) Nia, 1984 — Condition: Very Good+

A nice electro disco number from the Aleem brothers, with a dub mix by Marley Marl on the b-side.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Jonny Chingas

Phone Home (voc, inst)
Columbia, 1982. Very Good+
We've never been sure if Johnny Chingas ever cut a record for Columbia, because we've only known this one on 12" single version, but the cut's strong enough that we'd love to find one if it's out there. A very nice mellow soul groove, with some touches of 80's production, and a sweet soul ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
GRP/Arista, 1981. Very Good+
Funky funky funky! "Haboglabotribin" is arguably the best track ever by Bernard Wright – and it's got a bass-heavy, jazz-tinged, sample groove that you'll recognize instantly! The cut is served up here in a longer mix than on the album, with some extra vocals by Don Blackman (who ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Stiff, 1981. Very Good+ (pic cover)
An important early record from Yello! The standout cut here is "Bostich" – a great little track that's spare, electronic, and has snapping beats, catchy vocals, and this dark sound that fit perfectly with the crossover Danceteria scene! Other tracks are equally nice, though – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Another big hit for Evelyn Champagne King, this time with a nice bouncing 80s groove courtesy Kashif. 12-inch, Vinyl record
RCA, 1982. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A seminal bit of crossover from The Eurythmics – easily one of the biggest tracks of the early 80s British invasion, and a tune that almost makes us forgive all the later crimes of Annie Lennox! 12-inch, Vinyl record
A&M, 1986. Very Good+ (pic cover)
An 80s effort from Willie Colon, but still great, is a wild Latin club number – with some nice conga-laden grooves pulsing under the heavy keys and some tasty jazzy touches spicing things up! 12-inch, Vinyl record
