Les McCann Ltd Plays The Shampoo At The Village Gate (Jukebox EP)

7-inch (Item 911656) Pacific Jazz, 1963 — Condition: Very Good+
(pic cover)
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

The title track was most likely meant to be something of a hit for Les McCann back in his early Pacific Jazz years – and while it maybe didn't hit the heights of the charts at the time, it's still a great little cooker that leads off a tasty little set! The group here is Les' "Ltd" combo – with Ron Jefferson on drums and Herbie Lewis on bass – almost a west coast answer to the classic Ramsey Lewis group in Chicago, although one that plays here with a slightly more laidback sort of groove. Jefferson's rhythm is always a treat, and Herbie's bass is nice and sharp too – and tracks include some good originals by Les, including "The Shampoo", "Somebody Stole My Chitlins", "Filet Of Soul", and "Woody N You".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Richard Groove Holmes

Groove! (7 inch Jukebox EP)
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Near Mint- (pic cover)
An early cooker from Richard Groove Holmes – and one of the most important Hammond jazz sets to come out of the west coast at the time! At a point when most folks think the east has a lock on the instrument, Groove bursts forth here with a great hard-edged sound – proof that the LA ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eddy Senay

Safari/Sarko East
Sussex, 1973. Near Mint-
Nice choppy funky guitars from the fuzzy mind of Eddy Senay. "Safari"'s got a nice jungle funk feel, and "Sarko East" is a little bit jazzier. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alvin Cash & The Registers

Doin' The Ali Shuffle/Feel So Good
Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Alvin Cash pays tribute to Cassius Clay – screaming his way through the cut in a way that pre-dates most other Ali tribute songs, grooving away in that hard funky groove that you'd find on his best 60s work. "Feel So Good" is great, too – a heavy R&B stomper with a "T ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bandit, Early 70s. Very Good+
An excellent harmony soul single by this lost sweet soul group from Chicago! The production and vocals have a real east coast style, with soaring sweet bits, and cool dope soulful arrangements that work beautifully in a Whatnauts/Moments kind of way. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sedgrick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the few great obscure singles cut by Chicago soul singer Jackie Ross. Although Jackie had earlier fame on Chess, her later work is all quite good – and this single benefits from some great writing and production by James Van Leer. The a-side's a nice mellow number, but we like the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Frankie Karl & The Dreams

I'm So Glad/Don't Be Afraid (Do As I Say)
DC Sound Ltd, Late 60s. Very Good-
Great harmony soul! Both cuts are stellar – with that kind of spare, post-doo wop 60s soul harmony sound that we love to death. The production is by Gene Dozier, and Frankie Karl's vocals really send us! A great lost winner! 7-inch, Vinyl record
DC International, 1974. Near Mint-
Great stuff from one of the 70s' best vocal groups! "Seems Like" is stone mellow east coast harmony soul, with a sweet ballad style. "Town Called Nowhere" is even better, and has a nice choppy guitar, and a good midtempo groove. Very nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Toy Records, 1972. Near Mint-
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Shock, 1977. Near Mint-
A sweet little single – with a warm harmony vocals, and a production style that's slightly southern, with touches of Miami mid 70s soul, especially in the electric keyboards behind the vocals, and the moogy lines that occasionally float to the top. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Wicked, 1975. Near Mint-
... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fretone, 1974. Near Mint-
"Don't Boom Boom" is a nice little fast funky number – grooving a lot like some of Vicki Anderson's work from the early 70s, tight bass and guitar dancing around some hard soul vocals that are very much in line with the beat! "Signs" is a pretty nice soul track, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
