Memorial Album

CD (Item 544613) Duke/MCA, Early 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


The only full album from Johnny Ace – a key figure in the Memphis scene of the 50s, and one of the first great casualties of rock and roll! Johnny was one of the first singers to record for the legendary Duke label, and worked in a mode that helped transform the smoother style of the west coast postwar R&B singers into a rougher, rawer mode that would pave the way for Memphis soul in years to come. And although Johnny died a tragic early death (and partially because of it), the impact of his work was tremendous, even in the few short years for which he recorded for Duke – leading to countless posthumous collections, mostly illegitimate, which often presented Johnny's work in less-than-superior conditions. This set is still the best – and features 12 tracks that Ace recorded for the Duke label. Titles include "How Can You Be So Mean", "My Song", "The Clock", "Cross My Heart", "Anymore", "Don't You Know", "Saving My Love For You", "So Lonely", and "Pledging My Love".  © 1996-2019, 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.

ABC/MCA, Late 70s. Used
A nicely priced collection of work The Dramatics recorded for ABC in the late 70s – quite different than their earlier sides for Stax/Volt, with a smooth harmony approach that pushed them even further into the limelight than before! The group's got some excellent male leads that really make ... CD

MCA, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
A nicely priced selection of tracks by Al Hudson and One Way – with a focus on the group's groove-happy material that was always so big on the dancefloor! There's plenty of great boogie numbers on the set – tunes that aren't entirely funk, but aren't entirely club either – which ... CD

Uptown/MCA, 1994. Used
Mary J's second LP, and every bit as fine as the first. She's still working with Puffy and Chucky Thompson here, staying true to the commercial R&B formula that has been Blige's mainstay over her entire career. 13 tracks of the fine Brooklyn soul sound, plus a couple of interludes, including ... CD

Great stuff! Although the Four Tops are always best known as a Motown group – they actually manage to do quite well away from the label, and cut some excellent sides for ABC during the mid 70s! This CD brings together 14 of those cuts – including "Are You Man Enough", the ... CD
