Swingin' Affair! - Part 1 EP

7-inch (Item 933836) Capitol, 1957 — Condition: Very Good-
(pic cover)

(Plays with pops and crackles. Cover has light wear and aging.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good-
A wonderful lost single on early 70s Capitol – most likely one of those small local productions that was licensed to the label at the time! "You Played The Part" has an incredible sound that's mixed male/female harmony – a stated intro by the male voice, then lead vocals from ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Blue Note, 1975. Very Good
A classic from Donald Byrd – a wonderful number done in collaboration with Larry Mizell – and a mad mix of Latin and jazz funk grooving! Simply sublime – with a soulful feel that grabs you from the first note! 7-inch, Vinyl record

E Parker McDougal

Bitter Lemon/Foxxy Minor
Grits, 1974. Very Good+
Two sides of straight soul bop by this Chicago tenor legend from the south side! This is the kind of jazz that still gets played in tiny lounges all over the city – not cutting edge, or totally funky, but with a nice deep bottom, and a lot of soul. A great peek at a lost tradition in ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Good+
Tight tight tight choppy choppy choppy and funky funky funky! An undisputed classic, with a riff so fast you'd think it was played by a machine! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Alvin Cash & The Scott Bros Orchestra

Keep On Dancing (voc, inst)
Toddlin Town, Late 60s. Very Good-
One of Alvin's funkiest tracks ever, and a killer groove put together at the end of the 60's with the funky Scott Brothers Orchestra backing him up. The track's got a razor-sharp guitar that chops through the whole thing with amazing precision – and the instrumental side has some nice funky ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Golden Ear, 1973. Very Good-
Beautiful! "Fool Like Me" has everything you'd want in a sweet soul track from the 70's: a nice spoken intro, cool spacey production (by James VanLeer), and a very nice track about heartbreak and shame. Great stuff, and a track that should have been more of a classic! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tito Puente

Fat Mama/Work Song
Tico, Late 60s. Very Good+
Despite his proclaimed hatred of the Latin Soul genre, Tito Puente managed to score big with "Fat Mama", this tight little groover that has a totally catchy boogaloo riff. "Work Song" is a nice soulful Latin version of the Nat Adderley hit, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Karen, Late 60s. Very Good-
This is the reason you buy rare soul singles! "Almost" is one of the best 45-only soul tracks we've ever heard. It's got fantastic vocals, amazing production, and a hook that just won't quit. Jimmy's a really incredible singer, and Detroit genius Ollie McLaughlin produced the track ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good-
Two funky groovers from Johnny C! "Cool Broadway" takes up where "Funky Broadway" left off – dancing along at a similar beat, but slightly more restrained, or "cool", if you will. "Hitch It" vamps along in that Cliff Nobles "Horse" groove ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
