❔

Tight tight tight choppy choppy choppy and funky funky funky! An undisputed classic, with a riff so fast you'd think it was played by a machine!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Plays with some surface noise and pops. Labels have some wear.)

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.

Polydor, Mid 70s. Very Good
Funky! This oft-overlooked funky number features James shouting "pick up on this" a few times at the beginning – no instrumentation, just shouted vocals, in a great way that's excellent for dropping into a mix!

King, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A strange but great single from James Brown! The cut has a slow vamping "honky tonk" kind of groove – and James raps over the top about America, how great it is, and how much opportunity the country offers. The whole thing's got a very positive message – and the monologue is ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

King (Japan), Mid 60s. Near Mint- (pic cover)

Les Structures Sonores
Disques Bam/Cacophonic (France), Mid 50s. Near Mint- (pic cover)

Motown, 1974. Near Mint-
Heavy funk from the great Yvonne Fair! "Funky Music" is a tight little groover – bass and guitar dancing on the intro, riffing around hard and heavy, before horns and thumping drums come in with Yvonne's bad-ass vocals! "Let Your Hair Down" has some fake crowd noises at ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
