Really unique work from The Soulful Dynamics – a Liberian group who relocated to Germany at the end of the 60s, and recorded in English with a mad mix of styles! Their approach here is a blend of South and West African pop modes of the 60s – touched with more of a British beat group sound in the guitars and overall rhythmic approach to the tunes, making them extremely catchy tracks that often have a nice sing-songy twist to the lyrics. And although the group's not really that much of a truly African ensemble, they did pave the way for bigger 70s African-styled groups on the European scene – allowing their own pop-styled approach to groom audiences for hipper later work. CD features 26 tracks in all – a great batch of singles from the group's years on Philips, Decca, and Metronome. Titles include "Lady From Amsterdam", "Crying Man", "Jungle People", "Monkey", "Shake Shake Shake", "Mademoiselle Ninette", "Birdy", "Coconuts From Congoville", "Azumba", "Doctor Man", and "Wanna Love You". © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
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.
