OK ebay is mad cheap right now and is pretty much a buyers paradise. All the eurodudes are on vacation and I'm bout to come up...problem is I am wetmouth newbie still at modern osul, but I'm a wetmouth newbie with money in his paypal account.I want some good quality stuff modern soul-wise but don't know what to get.In the last week I've bought up some nice titles like the Delfonics "return" (Poogy) and Al Johnson "Peaceful" (Marina)-thanks MM, but now I ned more and I gotta act fast before those damn frencies and germ-os come back and fuck everything up. So modern osul heads (redgreg, danceonamerica, supergood, etc.) help me out!

    Jefree

    found a VG- to VG copy locally for $1.99. played it, and liked it but the noise in the background was getting to me. Is this one of thoe raer lps that goes for a bazillion bucks but looks like a .99 piece of crap?

    Khemistry

    always meant to pick up the reissue just so I could take a listen. Whats the sound on this? mostly uptempo boogie, or mellow mellow?

    Leprechaun: Loc-It-Up 12"

    Or maybe it's "boogie"?

  • VitaminVitamin 631 Posts
    Jefree is semi-rare, I suppose. I paid 18 for it at TSL in New York. It's nice though.

    Khemistry is boogie. "I've got a feeling" is the cut. But the whole joint is fresh.

    I think thats just one of those ebay moments, i was second highest bidder on a copy last month, finished @ 46 dollars.

    I would'nt be surprised if thats an unconcluded sale in the end.

    It's the "marcofunk" factor. This guy is the new grantgreenrecords / mmcm68. He bought a Diane Tell record off me for $100 and pays right away. God bless.

    Before going solo with "Chilling Out", Winston-Salem, NC native Gary Hairston founded and played drums for the Superiors Band. They did two 45s for the Barvis label out of Delaware. In the '70s, the group changed their name to Opus VII and cut records for Gram-O-Phon (mid-'70s) and Source (late-'70s, as Opus Seven).

    For which song(s) is the "Chilling Out" LP sought after?

  • jmperlmujmperlmu 14 Posts
    I forgot to say that I don't think Gary Hairston is related to Curtis Hairston.



    Edit: Maybe they are related. Google shows the late Curtis Hairston to be from Winston-Salem as well.

    Perhaps its the same dude? Pretty sure the Atlantic 12" has the same title as one of the "Chilling Out" tracks.



    edit: the Curtis Hairston 12" is titled "Chillin' Out", I assumed they were related... unless its a complete ripoff? Which would be strange

    Well, his one negative feedback sure looks like something we could assume is an issue with the seller, not the bidder:

    wait &see ,take your responsability for buy for the future bid mister !!!!
