You Can't Take It Away/My Heart Cries

7-inch (Item 83281) Vee Jay, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good

2 great Freddie Hughes numbers from his short-lived Vee Jay days! "You Can't Take It Away" is a Richard Parker number – done in a snapping, stepping sort of groove that has plenty of horns on the top, dark piano on the bottom, and incredible vocals from Freddie all the way through! "My Heart Cries" is a bit mellower, with a southern soul-styled approach that has female backing singers behind Freddie's wonderfully raspy lead.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the Young-Holt group's greatest tracks! "Wack Wack" is a stunning little jazzy groover – heavy left hand on the piano, with acoustic bass bouncing along on the groove, all very catchy, and with shouted vocals over the top! Great stuff – and proof that the guys were on ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A classic! "Mr Big Stuff" is Jean's enduring classic – a tight little groover with a hip feminist message, sampled by Schoolly D and others over the years, but equally wonderful on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Some of the more obscure material from Jackie's Chicago years, recorded with Sonny Sanders arrangements, and production by Carl Davis. "I Don't Want To Lose" is a nice loping groover, of the sort that Gene Chandler could handle quite nicely at the same time. The flipside's a bit more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, 1971. Near Mint-
Old school break party in action! From the first note of "The Breakdown", you know you've picked yourself a winner – the kind of funky Rufus Thomas tune that set so many beatheads going back in the mid 80s, and which has none of the hokey sound of some of his weaker work.

The Count takes on some 60s soul numbers – and the results are great! "Green Onions" is done here with piano instead of organ – over a slow-stepping, very sly groove that's got a real Soul Cargo sort of feel! "Hang On Sloopy" has almost a Ramsey Lewis groove at ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
