Soul music didn't just spring into the world fully-formed – and instead, the genre was the result of years of give-and-take between a variety of genres in the generation before – gospel, blues, jazz, and R&B – with maybe even a bit of influence from rock and country thrown in for good measure! And although the genre's most associated with the 60s, when it really took off, the music was still very much in a formative state at the start of the decade – a time when all the different elements, different scenes, and different artists were working in a huge variety of ways. This set brings together key tracks from the time that really helped get the soul train moving forward – a wonderful lineup of 28 titles that includes "Lipstick Traces" by Benny Spellman, "Standing In The Shadows" by Kenny Gamble, "Man's Temptation" by Gene Chandler, "I'm Counting On You" by The Freeman Brothers, "Come Tomorrow" by Marie Knight, "Heart Full Of Love" by The Invincibles, "Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um" by Major Lance, "Cry To Me" by Betty Harris, "I Found A Love" by The Falcons, "Always Accused" by Willie Tee, "I'll Give My Life" by Brenda Holloway, "Here's A Heart" by The Diplomats, "The Wrong Girl" by The Showmen, "Long Haired Daddy" by Vernell Hill, and loads more!  © 1996-2022, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
