Ultimate Breaks & Beats Vol 3

LP (Item 9835) Street Beat, 1970s/1980s — Condition: Near Mint-
One of the best-remembered of the classic Ultimate Breaks & Beats titles – a sublime assortment of funky tracks, many of which were crucial to the early sound of hip hop! 6 classic tracks: "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Apache" by the Incredible Bongo Band, "Dance To The Drummer's Beat" by Herman Kelly & Life, "Give It To You" by UPP, "Bongo Rock" by the Incredible Bongo Band and "Pussy Footer" by Jackie Robinson – the last 2 featuring extended break sections.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing. Cover and labels have a name in marker.)

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.

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
Import (Italy), Early 70s. Very Good+
Lots of funk and jazz here – titles that include "Party Is A Groovy Thing" by The People, "Ain't No Use" by Cook E Jarr, "Razor Blade" by Little Royal, "Cookie Man" by Spunky Onion, "America Wake Up" by Paul Humphrey, "Minnesota ... 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! The set's the second in Harmless' great Wonder Of Stevie collection – and like the first, it brings together a wealth of older cover versions of Stevie' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

Go All The Way
T Neck, 1980. Very Good- Gatefold
It's the end of the 70s, and the Isleys are still going strong – keeping it real by dropping some of the fake funk of a few years before, and going for a smooth soul sound that would be one of their biggest strengths during the early 80s. This sound can be heard to perfection on the tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impressions

First Impressions
Curtom, 1975. Very Good
Hardly the first album by The Impressions, despite the title – but a wonderful batch of modern soul tunes that proves that the group could groove long after Curtis Mayfield was gone! As with other Curtom gems from the 70s, the album has the group working with some really top-shelf help in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Goodman & Brown

Ray, Goodman, & Brown II
Polydor, 1980. Very Good
Probably the best album Ray, Goodman, and Brown cut after they dissolved The Moments, and moved to Polydor. Despite some more modern soul production than their classic recordings, their harmonies are excellent, and their voices are in totally top form. The LP includes their classic "Happy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirelles

Happy & In Love
RCA, 1971. Near Mint-
A great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album
