This Generation (7 X 7" box set – with download)

7-inch (Item 971113) Stones Throw, 2013 — Condition: Near Mint-
7 x 7 Inch

Dubby funk with plenty of Jamaican undertones, but not exactly a reggae set – and instead the sort of wonderful criss-crossing of modes we've come to expect from The Lions! The group definitely owes a lot to the sound of 60s and 70s Kingston – yet their approach is different, too – a bit sharper and maybe more soul-based than the usual reggae group – in ways that belie some of the deep funk associations of the group members! Yet from a reggae perspective, the set's right on the money too – played at a level that easily rivals the Studio One sound back in the day, yet served up with production that's even sharper overall – thanks to work by Connie Price in the studio. Titles include "Birds On A Wire", "This Generation", "Picture On The Wall", "New Girl", "Pieces Of A Man", "Let's Go Out Tonight", and "Be Easy".  © 1996-2021, 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.

Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Very Good-
Both tracks are nice – and both of them are hard boogaloo cuts in the best Alvin Cash mode! "Alvin's Boogaloo" has a stop and grunt groove – kind of like "The Twine", really rolling into the beat! "Good Timing" is more of a rollicking Northern number ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soulful Strut/Country Slicker Joe
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good-
Massive work from Young Holt Unlimited! "Soulful Strut" is still one of the group's best grooves – a fierce little tune that jogs, jumps, and has some wickedly funky piano – all that, and sampled by the Beasties, too! "Country Slicker Joe" is an LP cut, and has a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Inner City, Early 70s. Good
Sublime harmony soul – written and produced by Leroy Hutson! "This Love" has a spare, spacey sound – tripping along in a great mellow vein, with the vocals cascading over the top of the cut! "I'll Never Forget You" is a bit less well-placed, but it's also a great ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good-
One of Aretha's best! There's a massive old school break on the intro to "Rock Steady" – but even without that bit, the song's a real winner – ripping along with massive soulful grooves! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Duo, Early 70s. Very Good
2 rare sides by Jo Ann Garrett – recorded after her album on Chess, with production by Andre Williams! "One Woman" is a sweet, sad ballad – pretty nice, but the real treat here is "Now Girl"! That tune's got a snapping little groove – just a touch of funk ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
