Fantastic Four — Best Of The Fantastic Four ... CD 13.99

Seminal sounds from this great Detroit group – and a key look at their less-remembered music of the 60s! Although Fantastic Four are probably best remembered for their later disco work – including the Alvin Stone album on Westbound – back in their early days, they were a great Detroit vocal group with a sweet raw sound and some excellent harmonies. Although this album says it's a "best of", it's really the only full LP the group cut during the time – and it's a rare treasure of harmony soul, cut with a nicely stripped-down sound that makes the tracks shine like rough indie soul gems instead of Motown numbers. Titles include "I Love You Madly", "The Whole World Is A Stage", "Goddess Of Love", "As Long As I Live", and "Man In Love" – but the whole record's great!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print early Motown pressing.)

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.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.

Jimmy Ruffin

Ruff 'N Ready
SOUL/Motown, 1969. Used
A tremendous little album from Jimmy Ruffin – as "ruff" as the title implies, with a much deeper groove than you might find from other Motown releases at the time! The style here is really wonderful – rich, heartfelt vocals from Jimmy that easily match the best of the Detroit ... CD

Prince

Black Album
Warner, 1987. Used
Recorded in 1987, but never officially released until 1994, when Prince was trying to get out of his Warners contract. Prince's attempt to return to his more funky side after flirting with more straight pop songs was a Holy Grail amongst collectors for a time, and though we don't like it as much ... CD
Polydor (UK), 1970s. Used
A wonderful collection of Polydor work by the amazing Roy Ayers – a set that was originally done for the British market, and arguably has a much hipper ear for the tunes than any American sets! Given the depths of Roy's genius, it's impossible for the package to be completely comprehensive ... CD

Al Green

Absolute Best
Hi Records, 1970s. Used 2 CDs
What is there to say about Al Green that hasn't been said already? The man's a genius – with a sweetly seductive style that few other singers could ever hope to match. And now that he's back in action again, his older work is getting more attention than ever – the occasion for this ... CD
Capitol, Early 80s. Used
After issuing a strangely silly remix project of George Clinton's Capitol work from the early 80s, the folks at EMI have finally corrected their mistake by putting together this straight set of Clinton's jammers for the label – all offered in their original versions! The set's not prime P-Fun ... CD
Stax, 1969/Early 70s. Used
The near-complete Stax recordings of Ollie & The Nightingales – one of the few important vocal groups on the classic Memphis scene! The arrangements are classic Stax – handled by Isaac Hayes, David Porter, and Booker T – and The Nightingales sing with a sound that's both ... CD

Massive! By now, the 2 volumes in Soul Jazz's Nu Yorica series are among some of the most legendary Latin titles we've ever stocked – and this incredible "prequel" to the series is every bit as essential! As the title indicates, the compilation digs back into the early days of the ... CD
