Back To Front

CD (Item 543861) New Door, 2007 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

The Temptations take on a host of classic soul tunes – not their originals from the 60s and 70s, but tracks of that vintage, recorded by other artists! But thanks to strong efforts from producers Steve "The Scotsman" Harvey and Benjamin Wright, the set's way more than just a simple batch of classic covers – and instead offers up the group at the height of their powers, working in the studio with some very live, spontaneous instrumentation! Harvey's drums keep the whole session nicely grounded on his tracks – and Wright's orchestrations, while a bit fuller, are still quite live and warm – very much in the spirit of a classic recording from the 70s. The Temps are great vocally – bringing in some different inflections to these tunes – and titles include "Minute By Minute", "Wake Up Everybody", "Hold On I'm Comin", "I'm In Love", "Don't Ask My Neighbors", "Never Never Gonna Give You Up", and "Back In Love Again".  © 1996-2015, 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.

We Call It Soul
Rabbit Factory, 2008. Used
They call it soul, and we do too – a pretty good approximation of older southern soul modes from the 60s and 70s – served up by a group who really gets it right! The set was recorded at the legendary Playground Studios – and in Memphis too – and the overall feel is stripped- ... CD
