Incredible stuff – really really wonderful, and jam-packed with rare material that's never been released before! First off, you get the original Let's Get It On LP – an amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his previous record. That set features 8 tracks on the CD – slow jam classics like "You Sure Love To Ball", "Distant Lover", and "Let's Get It On" – plus "Come Get To This", "Just to Keep You Satisfied", and "If I Should Die Tonight". After that, the set features 9 "session" tracks that show how Marvin built the album – plus some amazing funky numbers that never got issued properly. After that, there's 10 demos and alternate mixes – including versions of some of the tracks that will really surprise you. Then, after all that, there's another to tracks called "working the groove", which show Marvin working with Hal Davis, Willie Hutch, and others – to craft slow funky tunes that will blow your mind! All told, there's an additional 29 tracks added to the original album – with many many gems that are as great as that one. Titles include "The World Is Rated X", "Where Are We Going?", "You're The Man", "Symphony", "Cakes", "My Love Is Growing", "Song #3", "I Love You Secretly", "Running From Love", "Mandota", "You Are That Special One", and "We Can Make It Baby".

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.

A live set by Roy – and pretty darn nice! The album was recorded live at London's Ronnie Scotts in 1990 – but given that Roy was playing for a British crowd that was keen on his classic work of the 70s, the set's got a very 70s-styled feel – and really takes us back to the glory ... CD
