CD

Group soul from The Philly Devotions – a key group in the evolution of the Philly sound who were then and are to this day greatly overlooked in the city's soul heritage – but it's truly beautiful stuff! This is vocal group with talent that should have gotten them over in big way, but thankfully, it's never to let to get on board. They might be best known for a couple of early Philly disco singles that were issued by Columbia – but even better are the earlier, more soaring and emotional numbers with stirring strings, but really fly higher thanks to the perfectly arranged vocals – we're hearing a number of those for the first time ever on this set! The group features Morris Taylor, Ernest Gibson, Gregory Davis, George Patterson and lead singer Matt Covington. 15 tracks in all: "Didn't Anyone Ever Tell You I Love You", "Makin Up", "I'll Never Color You A Rainbow", "Yeah, Yeah Girl", "I Just Can't Make It (Without You)", "We're Gonna Make It", "I Just Can't Say Goodbye", "I Was A Lonely Man", "Hurt So Bad", "Isn't It A Dream Come True", "It's Gotta Be This Way" and more – plus extended mixes of "I Just Can't Make It (Without You)" and "Hurt So Bad" and the instrumental version of "I Just Can't Say Goodbye".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
