    Hercules 45 (1973)

    Mercury

Pressing flaws?  Styrene vs. Vinyl Pressings?  Mythically rare for a major label 45?  This acid jazz / deep funk / bayou funk classic has been a bit controversial on this site.  See this thread for that.  With all that said, Aaron Neville's "Hercules" is a top tier slice of southern soul history.  Thankfully Jazzman reissued it on 45 in 2005 to ease all your worries about rarity and price.
