7-inch, Vinyl record

✈

Loads of fat keyboard lines on this one – a cut from the mid 80s, but one that sparkles every bit as strongly as Rene & Angela work from a few years before! Maestro Bobby Watson's still handling production – and the groove is a great balance between stepping rhythms and smoother soul – all without sounding too poppy or commercial!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sleeve has some wear and a split seam.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Wand, 1974. Very Good+
"Tell Me What'cha Gonna Do" is one of the General's best sweet soul cuts – a slow-building number with falsetto soul at the start, and a deeper approach as the track builds and builds in a style that reminds us a bit of the Soul Children. "Reality" is funkier – kind ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1972. Near Mint-
An excellent hard-to-find track by Lyn Collins! "Me & My Baby" has a wonderful gospelly intro, similar to "Message to the Soul Sisters", which then leaps into a great groove with a nice hard soul hook! The flip has sort of a nice Muscle Shoals-ish sound, with some good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Down To Earth, Early 70s. Near Mint-
One of the best tracks from this Chicago funk legend! The tune starts with a great break, has a fuzzed-out Superfly kind of groove, and funks it on in a totally righteous way! Loads of great fuzzy guitar – and a very hip sound that takes it past most of The General's other work! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Josie, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Killer funk from one of the best-ever bands of the genre! "Cissy Strut" has some killer stone cold choppy guitars, with a sound that was imitated often, but never matched! "Here Comes" is a rolling organ-driven groove – bubbling along at a chunky funky pace! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Linco, 1971. Near Mint-
A sock-soul number with a fast funky feel – tightly snapping the groove with a sound in the back that feels a lot like an Eddie Harris Varitone sax – one that takes over completely from the vocals, partying it hard with some crowd noises on part 2! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Black Lightning

Be's That Way/Cut My Hair
MCA, 1973. Near Mint-
"Be's That Way" is a nice guitar-heavy funky track with a good deep funk groove that has a bit of a rock tinge. Played by the obscure little group Black Lightning, who may be a rock band, or might be a soul band – but who did know how to get pretty funky when they wanted. 7-inch, Vinyl record
