Planet Funk Vol 2 – Funky 45's

LP (Item 922510) Planet Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

Not much of a cover – but a really great collection of grooves – of the sort that really takes us back to the first few home grown funky 45 compilations of the 90s! The set really goes for the best of the classic early funk 45 sound – tracks with hard drums, sharp riffing guitars, and an overall groove that out-JBs even the JBs! Best of all, lots of these haven't been reissued in recent years – making this older collection still pretty darn fresh. Titles include "Soul Brother" by Artie Butler, "Cutting Room" by Ocean Liners, "Funky Whistler" by Bill Doggett, "The Drag" by Ike & Dee Dee Johnson, "Doin It" by D-Nauld, "Funky Walk" by Ray Johnson, "Rubberneck" by Earthmother, "Get Some Order" by Lee Shot Williams, and "Organise" by Mugo.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
