CD

✈

Philly International, way past the hits – presented here on a special collection of key rarities from the legendary label! If you think you've heard Philly before, get ready to think again – because the tracks here are all non-iconic gems from the deeper reaches of the label – deeper soul, hipper club, and heavier funk than you might expect from the sweeter chart singles the imprint scored back in the 70s! The package is a masterpiece – way better than we might have expected, and featuring some key tracks that even we'd never heard before – more than enough to have you digging funky 45s for Philly International. Tracks include "Ghetto Woman (parts 1 & 2)" by Ruth McFadden, "Everybody Needs Good Lovin (parts 1 & 2)" by Bunny Sigler, "Days Go By" by Bobby Bennett, "It's So Wonderful" by Johnny Williams, "Makin Up Time (parts 1 & 2)" by Frankie & The Spindles, "Hard Workin Man" by Pat & The Blenders, "Theme From Five Fingers Of Death" by Bunny Sigler, "Good & Plenty" by Carolyn Crawford, "Yellow Sunshine" by Yellow Sunshine, "Darling Come Back Home" by Love Committee, and "Grasshopper" by The Soul Devalents. CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Ruby's Surprise Party" by Ruby & The Party Gang, "Stop Taking My Love" by The Mellow Moods, "Love Is Here" by The Futures, and "The Big Hurt" by People's Choice.  © 1996-2022, 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.
