2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

Although this one looks like a greatest hits set, it's actually a live show that features Dionne running through most of her big Bacharach hits during the Scepter years. The set features impersonations by Dionne on tracks like "Baby Love", "Bill Bailey", and "Falling In Love Again" – plus straight versions of many old hits, including "House Is Not A Home", "Alfie", "Don't Make Me Over", "The Look Of Love", "Reach Out For Me", and "Wives & Lovers".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Chess, 1976. Very Good+
A different kind of LP by Solomon Burke – one recorded when Chess was under the influence of Sylvia Robinson and the All-Platinum stable, and with a similar modern soul sound to some of the work on that label.

That Bad Eartha
RCA, 1956. Near Mint-
Naughty early work from Eartha Kitt – recorded back way before she was a huge mass of cliches, and had enough sexy power to earn the title of "Tha Bad Eartha"! There's a slinky, erotic quality to most of this work – and slightly accented vocals too, done with a sense of class ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heaven & Earth
Mercury, 1978. Very Good
Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group! The album may well be the best the group ever recorded – and it features some stellar ballad work produced with a nice spacey tone, almost in a Rose Royce mellow mode – by Jerry Butler's Fountain Productions team and by Clarence ...
