Hip To The Lip

LP (Item 983070) Hip, 1997 — Condition: Very Good+

Nice batch of 9 cuts for the funky clubbers, with a mix of soul and jazz cuts that includes "Wings of a Horse" by Ellen McIlwaine, "What's Happening Here" by Natural Four, "Speak No Evil" by Dadisi Komolafe, "Skindo Le Le" by Viva Brazil, "Go For The Others" by Sail-Joia, and "Let This River Flow" by Googie & Tom Coppola. Similar to the Straight Ahead or Mojo Club comps, if you know those.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Even into its 20s, the Ultimate Breaks series is still going strong – serving up a bunch of must-have funk tracks that not only form the blueprint for hip hop in the 80s, but which also stand nicely on their own!

Savoy, 1950s/2006. Near Mint- 2LP
The Savoy jazz catalog gets the remix tradition – following nicely in the mode of similar projects on Verve or Blue Note! The work here is all pulled from classic bop sessions of the late 40s and 1950s – key tracks that defined the sound of Savoy back in the day, but cut down here to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
The birth of Miami soul, and a beautifully done document of the rare Deep City label – home to Willie Clarke, Clarence Reid, and Betty Wright in the years before Alston and TK Records!

Sure 'Nuff
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint-
This is probably the best album ever cut by one of the lesser-known Prestige jazz funk organ players – and it's got a nice group that includes Virgil Jones and Houston Person, along with Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones and Bernard Purdie. The title cut – "Sure Nuff, Sure Nuff" – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1966. Very Good
A rare Atlantic LP from the 60s – one that showcases two different sides of singer Mary Wells, in a mode that's different than her work for other labels! The "two sides" in the title are Mary's soul side and her more sophisticated one – the former served up in a batch of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
A real watershed album from Horace Silver – a record that has him stepping strongly into the 70s – but with a rich new groove that's different both from his 60s work, and from the heavy politics of his United States series too! The album has Horace picking up a slightly electric sound, ... LP, Vinyl record album
