2x9/Came Up The Hard Way

7-inch (Item 896920) Baron, 1970s — Condition: Near Mint-

(Pink vinyl pressing.)

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.

Dave Baby Cortez

Fiddle Sticks/Happy Week End
Chess, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Stompin organ work from the great Baby Cortez! "Fiddle Sticks" is a lot harder than Dave's earlier hits – with some really searing Hammond, and a tone that almost sets your platter on fire! There's lots of raspy guitar backing him up – kind of chugging in an R&Bish mode! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Revilot, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great little soul track – and the record that put George Clinton on the map! "Testify" is a landmark cut – with a great rolling soul sound that takes up the heavy production style of Detroit, and points it towards the psychedelic future of the Mothership. The flipside's a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Minnie Riperton

Memory Lane/I'm A Woman
Capitol, 1979. Near Mint-
Very nice! "Memory Lane" is one of Minnie's last tracks ever – and it's got a super hook, really nice production, and vocals that always send us over the edge. Minnie's in perfect form here, and the track's a great blending of the floating style of her early recordings with the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mister Chand, Early 70s. Very Good+
A great groover from this hard Chisoul duo! "Gotta Get Over The Hump" is one of those cuts that seems to be just a groovy soul number – but it's also got a deep message in there somewhere, brought out by the group's full-on vocal approach! Flipside is nice, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Prestige, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Original Prestige single that brings together two hard to find tracks by this amazing funky guitarist! "Right On" is a killer cut – with some amazing guitar work from Boogaloo Joe, played at a tempo that's simply jaw-dropping! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Charles Earland/Richard Groove Holmes

More Today Than Yesterday/Misty
Prestige/OJC, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Two of the biggest jazz instrumental hits that Prestige ever scored – back to back on one 45, filled with hard Hammond grooves! Forget the fact that both cuts are covers, because these are THE versions – cuts that still play strong on a good jazzy steppers dance floor! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Amy, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Killer funky soul from the great Lee Dorsey! "Working In A Coal Mine" is a familiar cut from Lee, but it sounds way better on 45 than it ever does on CD. And "Mexico" is a mad mad number that's wonderful, too – and worth the price of the single. It's got kind of a crazy ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Big Beat, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A great little single from Carl Carlton – billed here as "Little Carl Carlton, the 14 year old sensation". Don't let Carl's age put you off, though – because the cut's a great little funky soul number, with a drum breakdown in the middle, which Carl shouts and sings over in a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fretone, 1974. Near Mint-
Early work by Con Funk Shun – featuring a tightly vamping ensemble funk number, "Bumpsumbooty", with a groove that's pretty much as it sounds from the title! The group's cover of "Mr Tambourine Man" is pretty great too – very different than the original version! 7-inch, Vinyl record
ABC, 1975. Near Mint-
What can we say? "Sweet Thing" is a monster – one of Chaka Kahn's best cuts ever, soulful, but with a jazzy finish that really makes it stand out, and sound super-fresh even today. We love the cut – and "Circles" is a pretty darn nice number too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
