Sam Cooke — Night Beat (remastered edition) ... CD 4.99

Wonderful mellow work from Sam Cooke – and a set that's recorded with a sound that's very much in keeping with the "night beat" that you might expect from the title! In fact, there's not so much a "beat" as a simple easy groove – a gentle sort of "night" feeling, with some piano in the lead on many tracks, and backing by a larger group conducted by Rene Hall – a great setting that lets Cooke hit some of his most soulful moments on record from the time! The album includes many lesser-known Cooke performances – including "Trouble Blues", "You Gotta Move", "Fool's Paradise", "Lost & Lookin", and "Mean Old World".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(1995 jewel case pressing.)

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.

New Birth (with The Nite-Liters)

Greatest Funk Classics
RCA, 1970s. Used
New Birth were one of those 70s soul groups that could do it all – sweet ballads, pop soul, and funkier numbers that went over the top with the full force of the larger group behind them! This tight little 18 track compilation focuses on those funkier numbers – most of which were ... CD

Fredi Grace & Rhinestone

Tight (with bonus tracks)
RCA/FTG, 1983. Used
Tight is right – as the set's a slicked up, soulful batch of 80s grooves – with plenty of keyboards, electric percussion, and a surprising bit of funk! This is one of those too rare cases where the period's pop soul production aesthetic is done with a genuine sense of soul – ... CD

Jones Girls

On Target
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1983. Used
Post-Philly, and the girls are working here with Fonzi Thornton and Robert Wright – who choose to start off the album with a silly bit of dialogue that has them talking to the singers from the production booth (possibly letting them know that Gamble & Huff are no longer in charge!) Here's ... CD

Wynd Chymes

Arrival
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. Used
A seminal groover from Wynd Chymes – a group with a groove that's as catchy as their name! The Atlanta combo only cut a few records, but all of them are great – and this debut does a great job of mixing modern soul with harmony vocals – all with a tight funky undercurrent that's ... CD

RCA (Japan), 1970. Used
The beginning of an amazing run on RCA for vocalist Jon Lucien – working here in a sublime blend of styles that's way beyond simple soul or standard jazz! Lucien's got a sound that's unlike anything we can think of – apart from the countless imitators who've tried for his style in ... CD

Jennifer Holliday

I'm On Your Side
Arista, 1991. Used
Jennifer Holliday's strong '91 set – with material that's par for the course for Arista soul efforts of the late 80s and early 90s – but Holliday outshines it with her powerful, emotional and wonderful voice! Definitely an underappreciated set, particularly for fans of powerfully ... CD

Ohio Players

Honey
Mercury, 1975. Used
One of the best albums the Ohio Players cut during the years at Mercury! Most folks go for their big hit "Love Rollercoaster", but we're always partial to the smooth, mellow funky track "Sweet Sticky Thing", served up here in the cool long version, which has a groove that ... CD
