Release Yourself (original, dub)

12-inch (Item 82849) Nia, 1984 — Condition: 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. Labels have some marker.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

Sugar Hill, 1982. Near Mint-
A killer single from Trouble Funk, on Sugar Hill, with the band's trade mark percussive riffing, and as you'd expect from go go, loads of nice fills and breakdowns all centered around a fat rolling bass pedal groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, 1979. Very Good-
What can we say? This is a classic! The track has a monster roller skating groove that's been sampled more than a few times over the years – but which still sounds incredible on its own! Both parts are great – and even though the single's pretty darn long, you still never want it to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Manhattan, 1985. Near Mint- (pic cover)
A pretty great number from Bernard Wright – much smoother and more R&B than some of his work on GRP/Arista, but a great track with a wonderful 80s groove hook! The vocals are surprisingly nice, augmented by a female singer on the chorus – and the tune's still got some nice jazzy ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
DETT, 1984. Near Mint-
A vocal and instrumental version of this fat, fat Go-Go take on 'Trans Europe Express", with massive bass, heavy syncopated beats, and nice spacey synthesizer sounds! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Black Jack, 1984. Near Mint-
A goofy little single that's sort of a "Stars On 45" version of James Brown tracks, with excerpts from "Sex Machine", "Soul Power", and "Super Bad", all done in a big medley. Not bad, actually – but kind of a weird concept! 12-inch, Vinyl record
