That's The Way It Should Be

CD (Item 578337) Columbia, 1994 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A surprising mid 90s comeback for Booker T & The MGs – a session that reunites Booker T on Hammond, Steve Cropper on guitar, and Donald Duck Dunn on bass – with additional drums from either Steve Jordan or James Gadson! The sound is somewhat in the classic Stax mode of years back – in that most tracks are spare instrumentals with lots of lines from the organ and guitar – spun out over rhythms that are never too complicated, and which have the stepping soul instrumental quality of the Memphis scene from years back. But the sound is also somewhat different too – produced with a bit more "room" than in the Stax days, and with a sound on the organ that's not as low-end as before – a bit brighter overall. Still, the record's a lot better than you might expect for the time – a nicely restrained effort that tries to hearken back to the old days. Titles include "I Can't Stand The Rain", "Camel Ride", "Let's Wait Awhile", "Gotta Serve Somebody", "Slip Slidin", "Mo Greens", and "Just My Imagination".  © 1996-2022, 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.

Very Best Of Booker T & The MGs
Rhino/Stax, 1960s. Used
What can we say? Booker T and crew are always tops in our book – and this album's as strong a batch of their classic singles as you'll ever find! Book's organ is the sound of a generation, and Steve Cropper's sinister vamping on guitar gives even the poppier tracks a hard edge that still ... CD

It's been 8 years since Sade's last album, but rest assured, she's still pretty much the same! Her vocals are as lovely as ever – with that indescribable floating quality that always sends us, no matter how many times we've heard her songs on the radio. The production is slightly different ... CD

A huge hit for both The Emotions and Maurice White – whose Kalimba Productions handled this album in the same hit mode they'd been using for Earth Wind & Fire! There's a polished, soaring bounce her that definitely shows the Earth Wind & Fire touch – and which takes the girls ... CD

Deniece Williams

Niecy
Columbia/Reel Music, 1982. Used
Totally great work from Deniece Williams – still mostly free from the tinny pop of later years, and done in a solidly soulful style at Sigma Sound, with arrangements and production from the mighty Thom Bell! The groove is almost an update of 70s Philly, with traces of the maturing mellow ... CD
