Flamingo Serenade/Flamingo Favorites

CD (Item 567997) West Side (UK), Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Nice UK 2-fer reissue of two of the best Flamingo's albums ever! Both are classic albums recorded for the End label, done at a time when the group were forging their rougher doo wop style into a sweet harmony sound that would go onto influence a generation of singers – and the production, singing, and arrangements are impeccable. The 24 track CD is jam-packed with classics like "Love Walked In", "But Not For Me", "Besame Mucho", "Maria Elena", "Mio Amore", "I'm In the Mood For Love", and their classic classic "I Only Have Eyes For You", which is still one of the 10 best songs ever recorded!  © 1996-2021, 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.

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.

Marvin Gaye

What's Going On
Motown, 1971. Used
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working ... CD
Epic, 1980s/1995. Used
Well, it's HIS story, actually – a bit overblown in concept, and probably execution – but a record that's got some nice nuggets underneath, if you know where to look. The first half is the backstory – gems from Michael's earlier years on Epic – including "Remember The ... CD
