This is a super clean Original Promo pressing on the purple People label of Maceo Parker's solo debut Us. It was mastered at Sterling (I spy Bob Ludwig's initials in the dead wax), pressed at Monarch, and sounds quite good as you might imagine. I'm forever on the lookout for clean James Brown and related vinyl but you almost never see nice early pressings out in the wild. Can you blame people for scooping records like this up when they see them? I sure can't. I grew up on this stuff and it still gets me moving today. This album features The Godfather himself, plus a bunch of the crew including Fred Wesley. It's funky, soulful, and a ton of fun. Get this one on your table and your dance card is set!
Cover: VG+ (slight wear on back and edges, promo sticker)
