A great little soul set from Wanda Walden – and probably one of the best things to come from the Narada Michael Walden camp in the early 80s! Narada produced and arranged, but the record's got a deeper feel than any of his own work of the time – a more soulful quality that's smooth, but never slick – and which casts Wanda in space that's almost a bit like Minnie Riperton in her last few years. A few numbers are a bit easygoing, but others have some respectable bite – and tracks include "Holdin On", "Wanna Love You Tonite", "It's Gone Now", "Just To Love You", "Lost & Found", "Don't You Want My Lovin", and "Take Your Heart".

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.
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:
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.
