Cool Aid/Detroit

7-inch (Item 8457) Lizard, Early 70s — Condition: Very Good

Two funky instrumental tracks from this LA funky drummer! "Cool Aid" has a feel that's almost bluesy – tight drums underneath, dancing with electric bass, and hard-plucked guitar soloing over the top. "Detroit" starts with a nice dose of car horns, then vamps into a groove that's got much heavier drumming – lots of tight fills and snaps from Paul, grooving out next to heavy guitar, wah-wahed up nicely for the kids!  © 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.

Curtom, 1974. Very Good-
Sweet and mellow soul from Chicago – two cuts written, arranged, and produced by Leroy Hutson – perfect for the style of the Natural Four! "Love That Really Counts" builds slow and warm with some nice electric piano – and "Love's Society" is even better, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cliff Nobles & Co

Horse/Love Is All Right
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good-
A classic! "The Horse" is a great 60s instrumental groover that virtually set the tone for the next 10 years of brass instrumentation in soul music! The cut's got a raw TSU Tornadoes or Bar-Kays kind of feel, with a horn line right up front, in a catchy rolling groove that never quits! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mayfield, Late 60s. Good+
Great lost soul from Chicago! Both cuts were written and produced by Curtis Mayfield – and "You're Really Something Sadie" is a total winner, with a great hook, and excellent vocals from Marvin, who cracks slightly in the emotional parts, kind of like Curtis. The track's also got ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Groovesville, Late 60s. Very Good-
Does JJ Barnes ever miss? Certainly not here, as both tracks are excellent! "Now That I Got You Back" has this amazing soaring groove – perfect underground Detroit, and perfect for JJ, whose vocals infuse the song with all the joy it should have! "Forgive Me" is a great ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Love, Late 60s. Good+
An obscure one with arrangements by Richard Evans. "After Dark In The Ghetto" is partially sung, partially spoken – in the mode of hipster inner city lonely songs, like the 50s jazz work of Langston Hughes, Frank Minion, and perhaps Babs Gonzales. "When You Say You're ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Trans World Sound, Late 60s. Very Good-
Wonderful group soul from Chicago – and the kind of single that makes us wonder why these guys didn't get huge! "Miss You Baby" is a sweet midtempo number with some great harmonies – a bit of a rasp and step, along the lines of the early Notations or the Sheppards – and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Ric Tic, Late 60s. Very Good-
If anyone ever asks you why JJ Barnes is so great, play them this single, and they'll find out why! Both tracks are incredible – snapping Detroit soul with a rougher, earthier edge than Motown ever had – but done to perfection by JJ. If we had to pick a favorite, it would be "I ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jackie Lee

Chicken/I Love You
Uni, Late 60s. Good+
Ooooo-weeeee! After serving up "The Duck", a northern soul classic, Jackie moves onto "The Chicken" – which is a stone funky single of its own! The track's got a massive groove – really heavy drums, super-dope wah wah guitar, and a snapping funky style that's more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
