Classic Memphis soul from the great OV Wright – a nicely priced collection of his classic work for Backbeat Records, all of which is produced by the legendary Willie Mitchell! The sound here is different than Mitchell's work on Hi Records – still with that warm Memphis glow, but a bit harder biting overall – more edges in Wright's vocals, and a slightly bluesy undercurrent at times – yet never in ways that slide into rootsy cliches. OV's a hell of a singer, and although we'd love to see his individual albums get reissued, this package serves as a nice placeholder until that great day – with cuts that include "Heartaches Heartaches", "Eight Men Four Women", "Ace Of Spades", "You're Gonna Make Me Cry", "When You Took Your Love From Me", "A Nickel & A Nail", "If It's Only For Tonight", "Monkey Dog", "Gone For Good", and "What More Can I Do". © 1996-2019, 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.
