Vocal Album – The Greatest Vocal Hits From The Crusaders

CD (Item 538679) MCA/Capitol, Late 70s/1980s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

CD


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.

Late Kenton on Capitol – but great Kenton too! In a way, Stan was almost best when he was working with standards – as on a set like this, he has an incredible way of transforming the sound of familiar numbers into something dark, moody, and modern. It's amazing to hear the way he ... CD
