CD


Ike's comeback LP from the mid 90s, and his last studio album! In an almost complete return to form, he gets together with his old running mates from Stax, including David Porter, and serves up a wonderful album of silky smooth, string-laden soul that stands tight next to his mid 70s classics! Includes "Ike's Plea", "Life's Mood", "Fragile", "Life's Mood II", "Summer In The City", "Let Me Love You", "I'll Do Anything (To Turn You On)", "Thanks To The Fool", "Branded", "Soulsville" and "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Our Kind Of Soul
U Watch, 2004. Used
... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 70s. Used
A lost treasure chest of southern soul – 20 previously unissued tracks by the legendary George Jackson, a songwriter we'd place right up there with Sam Dees, Jimmy Lewis, Phillip Mitchell, and other southern soul greats! The tracks on the set were mostly recorded as demos at Muscle Shoals ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1980. Used
One of the most compelling later albums on Philly International – a killer mix of jazzy numbers that have a very different style than most of the other Philly work at the time! Even though Leon Huff had been banging around in soul music for about 15 years – most famously as half of the ... CD
Buried Treasure, Late 50s/1960s. Used
The title says it all – as the set's a collection of rare group soul recordings from Chicago, either unreleased recordings by obscure groups, or a few alternate takes of more famous numbers (but we use that term loosely here, as the cuts are all pretty darn rare!) Obviously, the fidelity's ... CD
CBS, 1987. Used
Pop soul from Full Force – filled with plenty of influence from mainstream hip hop, but all watered down into a much more partyful groove! The group here are a bridge between the commercial funk of Prince, The Time, and other 80s acts – and some of the more beat-heavy sounds coming out ... CD
Excello, Early 70s. Used
Lots of smooth mellow soul with an uptown feel, but recorded and produced by the southern Excello/Abet labels. Lots of good work here by ZZ Hill, Jerry Washington, Freddie North, The Avons, Marva Whitney, Skip Mahoaney & The Casuals, Bobby Powell, and Percy Wiggins – and a lot of tracks ... CD
Vita/Relic, Early 60s. Used
27 tracks of music from the Volumes, the Majestics, Othea George, the Bohemians & Tony & the Technics. CD
Ready For Love
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. Used
A killer set from a group that never lets us down – stepping out here in a sound that's more modern, more mature than their hit work of the 70s – yet still filled with all the sublime harmony soul we'd expect from the trio of Tony Silvester, Cuba Gooding, and Luther Simmons! Wade ... CD
Buddah, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
... CD
Collectables, Late 60s. Used
A nice set of funky soul tracks by the great Syl Johnson – and believe it or not, one that has a different listing than some of the other CDs of his Twilight/Twinight work that we've carried! Apparently, some of this stuff's from singles, and it features nice tracks that weren't on the LPs. ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. Used
A huge discovery in vocal group material from the 50s – served up in this excellent series of tracks from the vaults of LA's Modern Records label! Most folks associate the early vocal group sounds with the east coast or Chicago scenes of the postwar years – but there was also plenty of ... CD
Latin Soul Recordings, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
Another incredible volume in the Soulful Thangs series – easily one of the greatest for late nite soul and rare harmony vocals! The package has a beautifully drifting sound throughout – that mellow as mellow can be soul that was made most perfectly at the end of the 60s and into the ... CD
