Inner City Blues

CD (Item 494590) Brunswick, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Stunning work from one of the greatest vocal groups ever – the mighty mighty Chi-Lites! The group had an amazing run at Brunswick records during the late 60s and early 70s – recording single after single that not only helped redefine the sound of group soul for a new generation, but which also broke down previously held conceptions of sweet soul! This set's something of a "best of" – and titles include "The 12th Of Never", "Love Is", "Trouble's A Comin", "Inner City Blues", "Love Uprising", "Living In The Footsteps Of Another Man", "Go Away Dream", "Yes I'm Ready", "What Do I Wish For", "Ain't Too Much Of Nothin", "The Man & The Woman", and "Let Me Be The Man My Daddy Was".  © 1996-2016, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

An instant classic the day it was released – and a perfect blending of the group's older freaked-out style with a slick late 70s funk sound that started showing up in the work of many other groups. "One Nation Under A Groove" is a monster cut with a hook that won't quit, and the LP ... CD
