It Should Have Been You/Getting Hot

12-inch (Item 83692) Island, 1982 — Condition: Very Good
$7.99 ...

12-inch

(€7.07 || £6.15 || ¥802) (approx.)

A stunner from Gwen – one of her catchiest club tunes from the early years! "It Should Have Been You" bounces along on a tight bassline, with riffing guitar, and sweet washes of keys that really set the scene for the strong lead vocal. And if that's not enough, Larry Levan mixed – giving the Sly & Robbie production and even better sound! (In a plain jacket. Label has marker on one side.)  © 1996-2016, 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.

Elektra, 1979. Very Good+
A sweet funky club track, with a great jazzy style that reminds us a lot of work at the time by Don Blackman or Bernard Wright! The cut's got a groove that sort of mixes P-Funk and early 80s groove – with some very nice keyboards and riffing guitars, topped off by some wonderfully sweet ... 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
