(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

An essential document of the great soulful side of The Crusaders – that wonderful stretch when they started inviting singers to work along with their groove – further expanding their music into great territory for the 80s! There were some folks who wrinkled their nose at this at the time – thought it was a jazz group selling out by adding singers. But to us, it was a brilliant move – as The Crusaders already had a strongly soul-influenced groove – one that any vocalist would more than be happy to work with. Singers here include Bobby Womack, Flora Purim, Randy Crawford, Tina Turner, Bill Withers, Nancy Wilson, Joe Cocker, and BB King – and titles include "Better Not Look Down", "Hold On", "Help", "Soul Shadows", "The Way It Goes", "Burnin Up The Carnival", "Street Life", and "This Old World's Too Funky For Me".

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.

MCA, 1976. Used
Apart from the title's terrible pun on the Glenn Campbell hit of the mid 70s, this album's a real treat – a very soulful batch of smooth funky jazz tunes by The Crusaders, who by this point have fully emerged to claim the throne of the pop soul jazz genre they virtually invented. The record's ... CD
Street Life
Blue Thumb, 1979. Used
One of our favorite albums ever from The Crusaders – a set that really sums up all the tightness they'd forged in the 70s, while still showing a new sense of soul and funk as well – expertly balanced with flawless LA production! The album may well be the group's equivalent of a Steely ... CD

Treasure Island
Impulse/MCA, 1974. Used
Ultra-hip work from pianist Keith Jarrett – a session that's filled with joy and life, and which has a lot more energy than some of his albums for ECM! The work here is kind of a refinement of the freer styles that Jarrett had laid down on previous albums – performed with a strongly ... CD

Impulse/MCA, 1961. Used
One of the all-time classics of early 60s mainstream jazz – and a beautiful record that showcases writing and arranging talents of Oliver Nelson! Nelson had been bumping around a variety of sessions before this one – as a leader, sideman, and arranger – but it was with this album ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1961. Used
Killer stuff by Art Blakey – one of his few non-Blue Note sessions from the time, and a hard-wailing set that features the Jazz Messengers as a sextet! The format is one that flourished briefly in these early 60s years – and in this case, the already great lineup of Lee Morgan on ... CD
Jumpin' With Jonah
Capitol, Early 60s. Used
Classic trumpet-heavy jive from Jonah Jones – reissued here with a number of bonus tracks pulled from other albums from the late 50s. The focus is on Jonah's gutbucket swinging style, with his trumpet up front in the mix in post-KC swing-type tunes. Things get a bit campy at times, but this ... CD
