I Remember Chuck Willis/King Of The Stroll

CD (Item 553916) Atlantic/Collectables, 1958/1963 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

Sublime R&B from the great Chuck Willis – featuring 2 of his rare Atlantic albums back to back! I Remember Chuck Willis is a classic of Atlantic R&B – issued soon after the tragic early death of the great Chuck Willis! The record includes a chilling photo of Willis' gravestone on the cover – and includes a wonderful sampling of his excellent material for Atlantic, stuff that can often get overlooked in histories of 50s R&B. The set brings together most of the best material from that time, including hits like "C. C. Rider" and "Hang Up My Rock & Roll Shoes" – plus lesser-known material (which we like better), like "Keep A Drivin", "My Baby", "Love Of Loves", "Stop & Think", and "Betty & Dupree." Also includes the stellar "What Am I Living For", which we could hear a hundred times in a row! King of the Stroll has a similar sound – and features more Willis classics, including "My Crying Eyes", "Thunder & Lightning", "It's Too Late", "Love Me Cherry", "Kansas City Women", "Whatcha Gonna Do When Your Baby Leaves You", and "Ease The Pain". 25 tracks in all!  © 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.

Soul Searching
Atlantic, 1976. Used
Sublime mid 70s work from The Average White Band – and a record that really has the group deepening their groove a bit – moving past the heavier funk of their roots, into some mellower grooves that are totally great! There's a great undercurrent of jazz in some of the playing here ... CD

Donna Summer

Another Place & Time
Atlantic, 1988. Used
Donna Summer's in the hands of 80s pop superproducers Stock/Aiken/Waterman this time around – and the trio give her music just the kind of catchy, bouncy feel of some of their bigger hits for other artists at the time! The approach is surprisingly strong for Summer, and almost returns her ... CD
Atlantic, 1961. Used
Ray Charles in a nicely maturing mode – on a record from later in his Atlantic Records years, definitely paving the way forward for his 60s classics on ABC! The tunes are blues, but not in the way that Charles first started recording on earlier singles for Atlantic – as there's a bit ... CD

Ray Charles

Genius After Hours
Atlantic, 1956. Used
A later Atlantic Records set from Ray Charles – a record that does a lot more to show off the jazz side of his talents than some of his earlier work! Ray plays piano, and works in a few different small combos – with players who include Joseph Bridgewater and John Hunt on trumpets, ... CD

Atlantic, 1979. Used
Possibly the greatest moment ever from Sister Sledge – a set that has the Philly quartet teaming with the Chic team of Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards! Rodgers' guitar brings in a hell of a groove to the record – that choppy, skittish sound that made Chic such a favorite at the time ... CD

Prince

Purple Rain
Warner, 1984. Used
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly ... CD

Aretha Franklin

Aretha (1986)
Arista, 1986. Used
A big one from Aretha Franklin's 80s comeback years on Arista Records – a set that features a surprising guest appearance from Keith Richards, but mostly concentrates on Franklin's successful run with producer/arranger Narada Michael Walden – who continues to do a great job of updating ... CD

Isaac Hayes

Isaac Hayes Movement
Stax/Enterprise, 1970. Used
Stellar soul from Isaac Hayes – just the sort of overblown masterpiece that made his early solo work on Stax Records so great! The record features only 4 long tracks – all of which go on in that slow-building style that Ike forged at the time – a mode that takes a few simple ... CD
Polydor, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
Great later work by Isaac Hayes – working here in a post-Stax, post-ABC mode that has him forging a smooth soul sound that's really great! The Polydor years saw Ike extending the baroque style that he started on earlier work – taking it into a modern soul vein with strings, keyboards, ... CD
