This is the ONLY video on YouTube that shows this song playing on Vinyl!
This song was originally released on a VOLT 155 7" 45, and is very rare. It was written by Isaac Hayes and David Porter, and went largely undetected until it was made famous in 1993 by the Wu-Tang clan, who sampled it for their song C.R.E.A.M.
i kept losing bids on ebay to people shelling out $200+ for it. maybe one day i'll get lucky and own the 7" some day. but for now , this great double LP compilation of rare/great 7" hits that never got picked up on the radar. Currently, this is the only video on YouTube of this song playing on Vinyl!
Vinyl was washed in a spin clean record washer and treated with gruv glide. recorded from an Audio Technica AT-LP120usb turntable/Audio Technica AT-440mla cartridge, into the phono input of a Harman/Kardon 330c receiver, and finally into the line in jack of my computer.
