How Can You Mend A Broken Heart/I'm The One

7-inch (Item 8696) Stang, Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

Wonderful stuff from an obscure younger singer! Spoonbread was a bit like Jimmie Briscoe or Foster Sylvers – in that he was a kid singing soul with an adult-styled approach. The style really works well on "How Can You Mend" – done here as a gentle sweet-soul version, with a spoken intro that's really cool. The flip's nice too – kind of a Michael Jackson-type number, one that rocks on a groove nicely.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes jukebox strips.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Brother to Brother

In The Bottle/The Affair
Turbo, 1974. Very Good
Great groovy stuff – Brother to Brother's fabulous cover of the Gil Scott-Heron track "The Bottle" – done here with a cool flanged vocal chorus on the lyrics, and a tight jazzy groove that reproduces the feel of the original, but adds some soulful female vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Booker T & The MGs

Slim Jenkin's Place/Groovin'
Stax, 1967. Near Mint-
Two lesser known tracks from Booker T – but both nice! "Slim Jenkins" has kind of a slight western tinge on the guitar – stepping around a saloon floor with the kind of edgey approach you'd expect from a guy named "Slim"! "Groovin" is a nice instrumental ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
