It's Alright Tonight

CD (Item 504507) FER (UK), Mid 70s — Condition: Used
$19.99 ...

CD

Sweet and funky soul from the San Francisco scene of the 70s – rare work recorded in the 70s, but not issued until now! The group are very much in the best tradition of those in the Fantasy Records scene of the time – with the sweet jazzy feel of Pleasure, the tightly stepping groove of Side Effect, and the warm modern soul touches that were often heard in the best Oakland acts, produced with a warm sensitivity that's kept the music fresh over all the years! The group's quite large, and has a variety of different instrumental styles – shifting from jazzy to funky to mellow with a classic 70s ensemble feel. Titles include "Always", "Is It Love", "Never Going To Be", "As Long As We're Together", "I Just Want To Tell You", "Don't Take Your Love Away", and "It's Alright Tonight".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Prince

Prince
Warner, 1979. Used
An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second album, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you can really hear the seeds of his later efforts – a really remarkable, unique, and fascinating ... CD
Rounder, 1982. Used
Later work from New Orleans legend James Booker – but a set that may well be one of his greatest records ever – a real back to basics effort recorded with a hands-off approach that almost makes you feel like you're catching Booker in some small club down off the Quarter! James plays ... CD
Liberty/PTG (Netherlands), 1981. Used
Classic 80s funk from Xavier – a group led by bassist Ernest Smith, who'd already had plenty of practice working with Isaac Hayes, The Midnight Movers, and The Coasters during their funky late 60s years! The groove here is similar to some of the other tight funk groups on Liberty at the time ... CD
Blue Moon/Big Break (UK), 1995. Used 2CDs
A later date from 70s soul legend Randy Crawford – cut overseas, at a time when she was initially without US representation – a situation that was immediately corrected with the strength of the album! The set has Randy really getting back to basics – mostly working with tight ... CD
Okeh/Epic, 1960s. Used 2 CDs
Major Lance was one of Chicago's first big soul stars – crossing over big on the charts with huge hits for the Okeh label during the early and mid 60s. That work is very fairly represented here on this 40 track set – with great notes, and a rich selection of songs that even includes a ... CD
Arista, 1980s. Used

United Artists/Rhino, 1972. Used
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... CD
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
20 titles from Johnny's early big hit years at Stax – back when he was cracking the charts with his home-styled blusey soul tunes that just wouldn't quit! Plenty of nice numbers on here – including the huuuuge hit "Who's Makin' Love", plus "Love Bones", "I ... CD

Sisters Love

With Love
MoWest/Reel Music/P&C, Early 70s. Used
The incredible lost album from the group Sisters Love – material slated for release in the early 70s, but never saw the light of day, save for a handful of singles – a mix of rootsier southern soul and impeccable west coast funk styles, finally brought to light and with bonus tracks, ... CD

Jackie McLean

Bluesnik
Blue Note, 1960. Used
A crackling date from Jackie McLean – a set that's much more hardbop than some of his other Blue Note work – filled with fire, far from the 50s – and really pointing the way towards his new directions to come! There's a hint of modernism in the mix, mostly on the tone from McLean' ... CD
EmArcy/Verve, Late 50s. Used
An excellent batch of soulful bop tracks – recorded as Nat's first – and featuring a group that includes brother Cannonball, plus Horace Silver, Roy Haynes, and Paul Chambers. The set's got a lot more fire than some of Nat's recordings from a few years later, probably because of the ... CD
