A promo 7" single of this funky classic! (DJ Reservice promo in an Epic sleeve.)
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.
A great one from Michael – one of our favorite early tracks by him! The tune's a great bubbling number from Leon Ware – one that shows Michael singing in a slightly more mature style that really comes off well! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Ronnie Spector sings with the E Street Band in all their 70s glory – on a record that helped the former girl group legend to regain some of her greatness! Steve Van Zant produced, and titles include "Say Goodbye To Hollywood" – which was written by Billy Joel – and a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Funky late 60s work from the great Andre Williams – reissued here on a Chess Blue Chip pressing from the 70s! "The Stroke" is one of Andre's greatest numbers – a slapping funky groover with twangy guitar over bass over drums, all supporting a groove that's got Andre talking ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Beautiful soul from George Clinton! Recorded years before the band's first album, but with a rich heavy sound that mixes the Detroit harmony tradition with fuzzier tripped-out soul arrangements – for a great sound that still sounds really beautiful today. Excellent harmony parts, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
2 fantastic tracks from Etta James – both of them raw and bluesy, but also sophisticatedly soulful! "At Last" is one of her all-time greats, a sweetly done number that always breaks our heart, set to impeccable arrangements that show that Etta can move from the rough R&B crowd ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
As might be expected, "Luther" is Jimmy's follow-up to his classic funky "Troglodyte". The track's another groover about a caveman, and it's got the same sort of silly funky groove – with lots of nice heavy guitars! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Wonderful Chicago soul from The Dells! "There Is" is a strident Charles Stepney track, with insane production, and a hook that just won't quit! "O-O, I Love You" is much more in their older harmony style, and has a very classic group sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record
