A Whole New Thing, indeed – the first album ever from Sly &The Family Stone – and a record that would forever change the face of pop, funk, and soul music! Even at this early point, all the group's best energy is firmly in place – a mad mix of raw funky roots with righteous late 60s energy – all served up with a lot more focus than most of the indie acts of the time, with enough of a punch to cross the group over to a much wider audience! Most tunes are short, hard, and tight – and the album features few familiar hits – which almost makes it a new discovery if you've only ever heard Sly's work from a "greatest hits" perspective. Titles include "Dog", "Bad Risk", "Underdog", "Run Run Run", "Turn Me Loose", and "That Kind Of Person". CD features 5 bonus tracks – including "Only One Way Out Of This Mess", "What Would I Do", "You Better Help Yourself (inst)", "Underdog (single)", and "Let Me Hear It From You (single)".  © 1996-2017, 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.

Great stuff! The folks at Goldmine always do a great job with their comps when they move away from the northern soul genre, and this one is no exception.

One of the great albums from Terry Callier's "second chapter" on record – a time when he was working for Elektra Records, and doing work that was a bit straighter soul than before – and also slightly jazzy as well! The record's kind of a mix of jazzy grooves and smoother soul ... CD
