Fallin Off The Reel Vol 2 – Truth & Soul Singles Collection

LP (Item 930912) Truth & Soul, Early 70s/Early 2000s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Heavy funk from two different decades – some real lost treasures from the 70s, stacked up here with some equally great work from recent years! The package is a massive second helping from the Truth & Soul family of labels – one that not only shows their continuing dedication to the best in deep funk, but also a recent turn towards older soul from the 70s – served up on a host of recent reissues that are really great! Most work here was only issued on 45s by the label – making the overstuffed collection a bargain at this price, especially given that some of the 45s aren't that easy to find of late. 2LP set is very different than the CD – with some songs that aren't on that format, and vice versa. It features 27 tracks that include the previously unreleased cuts "Odyssey Revised" by The Fabulous Three, "Untitled" by Funky Music Machine, "Sweet As Can Be" by The Evil Ds, and "Bumpy's Lament" by El Michels Affair – plus "Love Comes & Goes" and "My World" by Lee Fields, "Behind Blue Curtains" and "CREAM" by El Michels Affair, "An Earthquake's Coming" and "Is It Me You Really Love" by Black Velvet, "Just A Little While Longer" and "Gotta Clean Up The World (part 1)" by Funky Music Machine, "Nora Se Va" and "La Valla" by Bronx River Parkway, "I'm So Glad You're Mine" by Timothy McNealty, "These Moments" and "Money Is King" by The Expressions, "Call It Static" by Quincy Bright, "Feeling Good" by Bama & The Family, "So Glad" by The Evil Ds, and "Agua Con Sol" by Bronx River Parkway.  © 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.
