2 CDs
Out Of Stock


(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Although this one's a bit pricey for a 2CD set, it is a massive batch of great soul tracks from the Chess studios, and it includes many many tracks that we can only ever find on original 45s! There's a whopping total of 45 cuts in all, and just a few of the titles include "What About Me?" by The Valentinos, "Hold On" by The Radiants, "You Left The Water Running" by Maurice & Mac, "Searching For My Love" by Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces, "The Entertainer" by Tony Clarke, "Selfish One" by Jackie Ross, "Who's That Guy?" by The Kolettes, "I Can't Make It Without You" by Fred Huges, and lots lots more! One of the best collections of Chess Records soul that's ever been released – done with a lot of care, and an incredible selection of tracks! (Out of print. Barcode has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2018, 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.

Little Spice
MCA, Early 80s. Used
A really nice batch of early 80s soul from Loose Ends – one of the best-remembered groups who were making strong soul music in Britain in the period – but who actually recorded this excellent first album at Philadelphia's Alpha Studios! Making the record in Philly was a wise decision ... CD
Cutie Pie
MCA, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
A nicely priced selection of tracks by Al Hudson and One Way – with a focus on the group's groove-happy material that was always so big on the dancefloor! There's plenty of great boogie numbers on the set – tunes that aren't entirely funk, but aren't entirely club either – which ... CD
Ask Rufus
MCA, 1977. Used
One of our favorite albums ever from Rufus and Chaka Khan – a sublime 70s set in which the group's sound totally comes together, and finds a really special sound that's all its own! The blend of elements here is perfect – the group's funky jazz instrumentation, and Chaka Khan's warm ... CD
Checker/MCA (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used
A killer collection of some of the harder to find R&B and doo wop tracks from the early years of Chess – featuring tracks that include "Happy Happy Birthday Baby" by The Tune Weavers, "So All Alone" and "Shoo Do Be Doo" by Bobby Lester & The Moonlighters, ... CD
Impulse, 1960. Used
We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones ... CD

Otis Clay recorded live in Japan – working before a very appreciative audience, and hitting grooves that are right up there with his best 70s work on Hi Records! The sound is a bit looser than Hi – which is a nice change – and Clay's really in command on the set, leading the ... CD
Devil Made Me Do It
Gemigo/BBQ (Japan), 1974. Used
A fantastic second album from Rasputin Stash – a group who started out on Atlantic Records as a big ensemble with a pretty freaky, fuzzy sound – but one who emerge here with a sweet mix of funk and soul that's perfect for their placement on this mid-70s offshoot of Curtom Records! The ... CD

CBS/FTG, 1985. Used
A huge 80s moment for the Isley Brothers empire – a set that has Ernie and Marvin Isley stepping away from the main group with Chris Jasper – to reinvent their sound for the 80s! The record still has all the slinky soul and upbeat funk of the Isley material from the late 70s – ... CD
