Just As I Am/Still Bill

CD (Item 482311) Sussex/Raven (Australia), 1971/1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Some of the most righteous soul of the 70s – the first two albums by Bill Withers, back to back on one CD, and with bonus tracks! Bill had a sound like nobody else – a blend of folksy guitar, deeply soulful vocals, spare funky backings, and the occasional touch of strings and larger orchestrations – just enough to take things to the next level, but not too much to bury Bill's shining light. The albums are filled with tunes that are both mainstream and underground soul classics – tunes you might have heard a million times, but which never get old, next to others that you'd never caught before, soon to become new favorites. The CD features the tracks "Harlem", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Grandma's Hands", "Hope She'll Be Happier", "Moanin & Groanin", "Better Off Dead", "I Don't Know", "Lean On Me", "Use Me", "Lonely Town Lonely Street", "Let Me In Your Life", "Who Is He & What Is He To You", and "Kissin My Love". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Better Days", from the soundtrack to Man & Boy, and "It's All Over Now", a duet with Bobby Womack!  © 1996-2021, 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 have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Lisa Stansfield

Lisa Stansfield
Arista, 1997. Used
Damn great work from Lisa Stansfield – a record that had her bouncing back way to the top in the late 90s, while still holding onto all the wonderful styles she had at the start! The grooves are lean, clean, and very classic-styled – that mix of well-syncopated rhythms, soaring strings ... CD

Angela Winbush

Polygram, 1987. Used
A nice set of late 80s commercial soul, form the driving force behind Rene & Angela and the latter day Isley Brothers hits. It seems as though not too long ago we'd have dismissed albums like this because of their crisp production and 80s sounding drums, but that's a big part of what makes ... CD

King/Charly (UK), Early 50s. Used
24 tracks in all – all vintage R&B for King Records, filled with plenty of raunch! CD
Mar, Mid 60s. Used
Although The Contours will be forever known for their perpetual oldie "Do You Love Me (Now That I Can Dance)", they're also an excellent soul group with a hard raw sound, and a lot more to offer than you'd expect! This 25 track compilation of the group's sublime Motown work really ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s-Early 60s. Used
West coast r&b, doo wop and all around fantastic numbers from the mid 50s to the dawn of the 60s – fantastic stuff from Tony Allen – not the Afrobeat legend, but the unjustly overlooked singer! Tony had a bunch of excellent singles on the important r&b labels of the day, but ... CD

Clarence Carter

Ichiban, 1986. Used
Although this one's the bane to Clarence's earlier reputation, it's also the album that has him earning waaaaay more money than most of his late 60s southern soul contemporaries! The record snuck onto the market in 1986, one of the many so-so releases of bluesy southern soul on the Ichiban label ... CD

Are You Experienced?
Reprise, 1967. Used
Not experienced? Well, this album will help push you over the top – as it's done for decades of listeners from the heyday of young Jimi Hendrix all the way up to the present! The set's a classic through and through – a blueprint not just for the genius of Hendrix, but for generations ... CD

Arkology (3CD set)
Island, 1970s. Used 3 CDs
The mothership has landed! While attempting to make a definitive compilation of all of Scratch's productions would take well more than 3 CDs, this set does a fine job of touching on important highlights and unearthing a few hidden gems, from the fertile Black Ark period. 55 tracks in all, with a ...
