Real Thing

CD (Item 513983) Burgundy, 2009 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A recent live set from Ashford & Simpson – but a great one too, and a concert that shows they haven't lost any of their charm over the years! The performance is very well recorded, and hardly just a throwaway live date – standing instead as a real tribute to the mighty pairing of Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson – first forged at Motown, then going onto have an undeniable influence on 70s soul. Backings are all pretty great – upbeat and played with a nice sense of spontaneity that matches the energy of the vocals – and although most of the tunes are old hits from the pair, they come off with a nice degree of freshness throughout. Titles include "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing", "Your Precious Love", "Stay Free", "Found A Cure", "It's Much Deeper", "Gimme Something Real", "I'm Every Woman", "I'm Not That Tough", "Reach Out & Touch", and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough".  © 1996-2021, 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.

2 of the Jackson 5's lesser-selling albums – but both pretty darn great! Goin Back To Indiana is the original soundtrack to the group's TV special – and it's got some excellent numbers, plus a few odd tracks that are very nice. Bill Cosby, Rosey Grier, and Tommy Smothers all make a ... CD

Mid 80s, and while never that bad (nothing Stevie does is ever terrible – well, except for "Don't Drive Drunk"!), the record lacks that certain greatness that you'll find on even the lesser Stevie Wonder albums. Still, there's some decent enough numbers that keep the album fresh ... CD

An excellent set by BB King – one of his best from the 60s, and a smoking live set recorded at Chicago's legendary Regal Theatre! The enthusiasm at the venue shows that BB's Memphis-honed style is a perfect fit for the electrified Chicago sound of the 60s – and the recording really ... CD
