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.

James Brown – Jazz
King/Verve, 1960s. Used
Not socking soul, but laidback jazz – an under-acknowledged side of James Brown's career, presented fully in this excellent collection of work from the 60s! The package shows a growing sophistication in James' music as the 60s moved on – not just in his vocals, which were surprisingly ... CD

One of the coolest, funkiest records we've ever heard from Dr John – thanks to lots of guest help from The Meters! The vibe here is a bit tighter than some of Mac's previous records – not as trippy as his first few for Atco – but the sound is still nice and sharp, and Allen ... CD

Landmark stuff, and a beautiful album that mixes soulful tracks with Donny's nascent jazz sensibility!
