High Cost Of Living/Nosey Neighbors

7-inch (Item 928765) Ronn, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+

(In a Ronn sleeve.)

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.

Ronn, Late 60s. Very Good+
Wonderful work from Toussaint McCall! "One Table Away" has a similar sound to his classic weeper "Nothing Takes The Place Of You" – and it's a haunting love story about bad seating in a restaurant that's one of Toussaint's best cuts ever! "My Love" is more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Ronn, Early 80s. Near Mint-
Modern stuff from Bobby, but both cuts are pretty nice – with a blusey style that recalls his harder earlier days, and which shows he's still a pretty strong contender in the southern soul circuit. "It's Alright" has a good hook, some nice keyboards, and the kind of groove that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
One of the Young-Holt group's greatest tracks! "Wack Wack" is a stunning little jazzy groover – heavy left hand on the piano, with acoustic bass bouncing along on the groove, all very catchy, and with shouted vocals over the top! Great stuff – and proof that the guys were on ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, Early 70s. Near Mint-
A classic! "Mr Big Stuff" is Jean's enduring classic – a tight little groover with a hip feminist message, sampled by Schoolly D and others over the years, but equally wonderful on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Some of the more obscure material from Jackie's Chicago years, recorded with Sonny Sanders arrangements, and production by Carl Davis. "I Don't Want To Lose" is a nice loping groover, of the sort that Gene Chandler could handle quite nicely at the same time. The flipside's a bit more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stax, 1971. Near Mint-
Old school break party in action! From the first note of "The Breakdown", you know you've picked yourself a winner – the kind of funky Rufus Thomas tune that set so many beatheads going back in the mid 80s, and which has none of the hokey sound of some of his weaker work. The ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+
The Count takes on some 60s soul numbers – and the results are great! "Green Onions" is done here with piano instead of organ – over a slow-stepping, very sly groove that's got a real Soul Cargo sort of feel! "Hang On Sloopy" has almost a Ramsey Lewis groove at ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
