Ultimate Breaks & Beats Vol 20

LP (Item 9634) Street Beat, 1970s/1980s — Condition: Very Good
Twentieth volume in this long running classic series of comps, one that we know will never go out of style, not just because the tracks are an incredible collection of funky originals and break laden numbers, but because they've inspired kids from Munich to Montana to hit the wheels of steel! This volume has the guys trading records on the front cover and features edited versions of Roy Ayers "Lonesome Cowboy", Joe Quarterman's "I'm Gonna Get You" and Friend & Lover's "Reach Out Of Darkness", plus Duke Williams' "Chinese Chicken", The Chubukos (aka Afrique) "House Of Rising Funk", Eddie Bo "Hook & Sling" and Bill Withers "Kissing My Love".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has minimal wear. Labels have a beat sticker into the runout grooves.)

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.

Street Beat, 1970s/1980s. Very Good
One of the best of the later volumes in this now classic series, one we hardly would've ever imagined would become collectible in it's own right. This volume has the records flying through space on the front and though it has 8 tracks, only Miami's "Chicken Yellow" and Lightnin Rod's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s/1980s. Sealed 2LP
A European disco world that's ripe for rediscovery – one that's much more obscure than better-known club work from Germany, France, and Italy – but which may well be even groovier than the work from those three scenes! The package is a great complement to some of the funk and jazz sets ... LP, Vinyl record album
Paul Winley, 1981. Very Good
Paul Winley never runs out of breaks and beats – and on this volume 4, he's still going strong with plenty of tracks that made things happen back in the early years of hip hop! Titles include "Rock It In The Pocket" by Cerrone, "Super Sperm"by Captain Sky, "Disco ... LP, Vinyl record album
Goldmine (UK), Early 70s. Near Mint-
The last volume in this awesome series of hard funky cuts, and still they're coming up with tracks we love and have never heard before! Cuts include "Georgia Walk" Raw Soul, "Quit Jivin" by Pearly Queen, "Pick & Shovel" by The Touch, "Super Funky" by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fat City (UK), 1999. Near Mint- 2LP
Great mix of funk and hip hop – with the kind of tasty selection you'd expect from crate-diggers like the folks at Fat City! The overall feel is more hip hop than funk, but the tracks work together very nicely – with a stunning array of heavy downtempo beats, and lots of warm rumbling ... LP, Vinyl record album
Irma (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP
The great second volume in this excellent series of jazz, soul, Brazil, Latin, and more! With "Mi Vida" by Jon Lucien, "Garra" by Marcos Valle, "East" by Billy Paul, "Vera Cruz" by Stanley Turrentine, "Ye Me Le" by Luiz Carlos Vinhas, "Lies&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harmless (UK), 1970s. Very Good+ 2LP
The depth of Stevie Wonder's music knows no bounds – as you'll hear in this joyous celebration of his compositions of the 60s and 70s!

Ike Quebec

Congo Lament
Blue Note, 1962/1981. Near Mint-
Some of the most wonderful work that Ike Quebec ever recorded – yet a set that was never issued until the early 80s – and even then, only briefly! The group is a top-shelf Blue Note lineup, with soloists as strong as Ike himself – which is great, as the songs are longer than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

Blue Spirits
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint-
Quite an unusual session for Freddie Hubbard – one of his most modernist albums for Blue Note, recorded with a larger group that includes James Spaulding on alto and flute, Joe Henderson (or Hank Mobley) on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, and the surprising inclusion of Kiane Zawadi on euphonium! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hank Mobley

Caddy For Daddy
Blue Note, 1965. Sealed
One of the greatest Blue Note albums of all time – a record that's even better than the look of it's cover – which is already pretty darn classic! Hank Mobley had been making records for Blue Note for a number of years before this set – but Caddy For Daddy is one in which he ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ben Webster

Soulville
Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
About as classic as you can get for Ben Webster on Verve Records – a nicely mature, nicely laidback session that really captures the energy promised in the title! The sidemen are all in an easygoing, soulful mode – Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
