This Is Where The Happy People Go – The Best Of The Trammps

CD (Item 492434) Atlantic/Rhino, 1970s — Condition: Used
$7.99 ...

CD

The Trammps will forever be blamed for the disco explosion of the late 70s – and for all the crimes that were perpetrated in the wake of Saturday Night Fever – but trust us, you've got to give them one more chance! The group's a lot better than you'll remember – if all you can remember is "Disco Inferno" – and in a way, they were the ultimate realization of that east coast "harmony group gone uptempo" sound that pushed out of the underground to the mainstream during the mid 70s. This set's got a total of 18 cuts, nearly all of which are produced to Philly perfection by the team of Norman Harris, Ronnie Baker, and Earl Young. Titles include "Love Epidemic", "Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart", "Where Do We Go From Here", "Hooked For Life", "Trammps Disco Theme", "Ninety Nine & A Half", "Seasons For Girls", "Disco Party", "That's Where The Happy People Go", "Soul Searchin Time", and of course, "Disco Inferno".  © 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.

Donny Hathaway

Donny Hathaway Collection
Atlantic, 1970s. Used
Pure genius from Donny Hathaway – a 70s soul giant who burned brightly for just a few years, then was taken away from us all too soon! In our book, Donny is every bit a giant of the decade as Marvin Gaye or Curtis Mayfield – and you'll hear work here that easily matches the best of ... CD

Very Best Of Booker T & The MGs
Rhino/Stax, 1960s. Used
What can we say? Booker T and crew are always tops in our book – and this album's as strong a batch of their classic singles as you'll ever find! Book's organ is the sound of a generation, and Steve Cropper's sinister vamping on guitar gives even the poppier tracks a hard edge that still ... CD

Chapter Two
Atlantic, 1970. Used
Mindblowing work from Roberta Flack – an album that should be in the collection of any fan of righteous soul music! Forget all the wimpier modes of Flack's later years – because here, the young Roberta is a vision of positive power and spiritual soul – a singer with roots in jazz ... CD

United Artists/Rhino, 1972. Used
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... CD
Rhino, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
15 bass-heavy classics from the band that virtually invented the 80s groove sound! The set's a good selection of tracks from Slave's classic Cotillion albums from the late 70s, and it also includes 5 tracks from bandmember Steve Arrington, who went on to record with his Hall Of Fame group during ... CD
Rhino, 1982. Used
A huge album for Patrice Rushen – thanks largely to the track "Forget Me Nots", which is a perfect blend of jazz and soul, in that warm sweet style she was forging after her early days as more of a fusion artist. The rest of the album's every bit as great – and the ... CD
Atlantic/Spy, 1968. Used
Amazing stuff – the first two albums by the Sweet Inspirations – back to back on one CD! Songs Of Faith & Inspiration is the first album that the Sweet Inspirations cut for Atlantic – and a gospel album that's billed under the name of Cissy Drinkard & The Sweet ... CD
Omni/Atlantic, Early 70s. Used
A dozen tracks from one of the greatest east coast harmony groups of the 70s! Blue Magic came onto the scene a bit later than some of their other hit making geographical neighbors – like The Stylistics or The Moments – but their sound was pure 70s harmony all the way, and the group had ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1971. Used
The King Curtis combo in all of its glory – really grooving hard here in a set of instrumental performances recorded at the same time as Aretha Franklin's famous live date at the Fillmore West! King backed Aretha up on her own record from Fillmore, but this set features all the instrumental ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1975. Used
A great sense of righteousness and groove – the key mix that made the O'Jays so great back in the day – and which really helped put the Philly International enterprise on the map! The album's miles from the group's simple harmony soul roots – even though those were pretty darn ... CD

I Just Wanna Love You
Polydor, 1989. Used
An overlooked gem from the Main Ingredient – recording far from their classic years of the 70s, but still sounding pretty darn great! The group are down to a duo – but the sound is still strong, thanks to some sweet and mellow production, and tight vocal arrangements by The Knight Crew ... CD
