Touch Of Funk/Share My Love

12-inch (Item 83691) Chi Sound, Early 80s — Condition: Very Good
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

✈

2 sides of work by this oft-overlooked late Chicago soul group! "Touch Of Funk" is a pretty nice bass-heavy dancefloor track, but the real gem here is "Share My Love" – a sublime harmony soul ballad, and the kind of track that rivals the best of the New Jersey vocal group scene of the early 70s! A wonderful track that should have been huge – arranged and produced by the triple threat team of Otis Leavill, Willie Henderson, and Carl Davis!  © 1996-2020, 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.

Paula, 1984. Very Good+
A rather different 12" from this Chicago group, but still great! Popping electro sounding grooves that are really reminiscent of "White Horse", but with a very roller disco friendly feel! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Kelli-Arts, Early 80s. Near Mint-
2 sides of work by this oft-overlooked late Chicago soul group!

20th Century, 1977. Near Mint-
A funky funky thumper from Barry White – and one of his last truly genius tracks! "Ecstasy" is presented here in a long long version that lets the tune's initial bass and drum interplay stretch out magnificently – sliding and slinking along in a classic White-styled groove, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Trax, 1986. Very Good
Classic first generation Chicago acid house tracks, on Trax, from Marshall Jefferson. Get ready to Jack! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Trax, 1986. Good+
If you ask us, this is Larry Heard's finest moment, combining the raw energy of early Chicago house with a jazzy sensibility, warm tones on the keyboards and a spare approach that gives all the elements room to breath. A modern classic! 12-inch, Vinyl record
KMS, 1987. Good+
A rare early track from Kevin Reese Saunderson, before he dropped the "T" and started producing and releasing tracks as Inner City (or perhaps a misspelling on the part of the label). The 3 tracks were all done in collaboration with Mayday, but have the more souldful approach that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. Very Good- (pic cover)
One of Prince's biggest tunes ever – and a track that still sounds surprisingly great to our ears these days – funky, chunky, and completely catchy – with a hook that shouldn't go over so well, but really sends the tune home time and time again! 12-inch, Vinyl record

War/Lonnie Jordan

Galaxy/Junkie To My Music
MCA, 1979. Very Good
A split single from War, and lead singer Lonnie Jordan. "Galaxy" is a later funky classic by the group – strutting out with some sweet funky riffing, ensemble vocals, and a powerful groove that's always been a dancefloor pleaser! "Junkie To My Music" has a syncopated ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Epic, 1989. Very Good-
The deep style of the Chicago mix sound of the 80s goes mainstream in this great little 12" of tracks from Lil Louis! "I Called U" is the sort of number that we used to hear endlessly on house mix stations back in the day – with a throbbing spare bassy groove, and very strange ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Dance Mania, 1988. Good+
Early, early work from Lil Louis – super raw too, in the way the best independent Chicago house singles were at the beginning. 12-inch, Vinyl record
25 West, 1982. Good+
A wicked groover from Klein & MBO – bubbling over with the sweet electro touches we love in their work! The track's a percolated drum machine riffer – with whispered breathy vocals over the beats, and electric keys that come in nicely and take the tune over. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Transmat, Late 80s. Good+
Classic work from Derrick May. 12-inch, Vinyl record
