Rose Brothers — Everything's Coming Up Roses ... CD 13.99

Everything's coming up for the Rose Brothers here – sounding better on this second set than on their debut, with a style that really shows the group coming into their own! The quartet have an approach that takes an older 70s group style, and finds a way to make it work within a contemporary soul vibe – surprisingly electric, given the Muscle Shoals imprint – but in a style that's still got a nice southern indie feel overall. The best cuts are the mellower and midtempo ones – which seem to dominate here – and the group have moved away from some of their funk and electro modes of before, a good choice. Titles include "Easy Love", "Celebrate", "Personal Touch", "Just Within Reach", "Fast Lane",a nd "I Wanna Be Your Lover".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Rose Brothers
Muscle Shoals Sound, 1985. Very Good
Modern Muscle Shoals material from The Rose Brothers – a male quartet with one foot in an older harmony soul mode, and the other firmly set into the bigger modes of the 80s! Mellower moments mix with electro elements on this debut album – with a vibe that's almost more east coast than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mosley & Johnson
Muscle Shoals Sound, 1987. Very Good+
A great southern soul duo who were perhaps born a decade or two too late – working here in a modern soul groove, but with a style that still echoes some deep soul roots! The album was recorded in Muscle Shoals and Tupelo, with instrumentation that's decidedly modern – more keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Westbound, 1972. Very Good+
Maybe the funkiest album ever cut for the legendary Westbound label in Detroit – and that's saying a lot, given that the company was the initial home to Funkadelic! Yet on this stunning full length set, The Counts maybe do that famous group one better – pushing aside their vocals for ... LP, Vinyl record album
King, 1968. Very Good
James' moving tribute to the late Little Willie John – a big influence, and a fellow label mate at King. There are some great deep soul tracks on here, and lots of groovy instrumentals. Plus, the cover's got a picture of James holding a Little Willie John album, and looking very touched. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Enterprise, Late 60s. Sealed
A killer first album as a lead artist for David Porter – previously known as part of a powerhouse writing team with Isaac Hayes for Stax Records – but like Ike at the time, finally given a chance to shine as an artist on his own! The set's got all the raw punch you'd expect from Porter' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Aretha Now
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint-
One of a handful of crucial early Aretha Franklin albums for Atlantic – and a key example of her genius pairing with arranger Arif Mardin! Instrumental backing is by a hard burning Memphis/Muscle Shoals lineup that includes Spooner Oldham on electric piano and organ, Tommy Cogbill on guitar, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shot Of Rhythm & Soul
Dot/Ace (UK), Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great early Ace compilation – filled with all the best work from the legendary Arthur Alexander – a huge influence on the shape of southern soul in the 60s! Lots of great cuts – including "Pretty Girls Everywhere", "Anna", "Go Home Girl", "A ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dance To The Music (original cover)
Epic, 1968. Very Good+
Classic funkiness from Sly & The Family Stone – an album that really pushed them to the top of their game, and exploded on the late 60s scene like a righteous funky bomb! The title cut's a mega-hit that you'll recognize right away – but the whole album's great, and is filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP
A wicked little collection of rare soul singles – all hand-picked by Andy "The Document" Smith, with an equal focus on Northern dancefloor numbers and harder funkier tracks! The set's a nice contrast to other collections on the market, because Andy's coming at the music from a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Player
Philly Groove, 1974. Very Good+
Their classic second record, and a pivotal album in defining the east coast uptempo sound of the mid 70's. Rochelle Fleming and the gals sing in soulful harmony style, while Norman Harris and Vince Montana lay down some heavy uptempo grooves. Includes their classic "scolding" songs ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rockin' Roll Baby
Avco, 1973. Very Good+
The third album by The Stylistics – and a set that's still very much in the high-harmony territory of their first two classics! Thom Bell's still very firmly on deck this time around – arranging, producing, and writing a good deal of the material too – and the Sigma Sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feeling The Magic
MGM, 1975. Very Good+
Great stuff from one of the unsung heroes of 70s soul! The record's a bit rawer than some of Johnny's earlier work – and it's got a sexy cover that puts him more in the camp of Roy Ayers or Leroy Hutson, at least from a visual perspective! The whole album was written and produced by Johnny ... LP, Vinyl record album
