Various — Masterpieces Of Modern Soul ... CD 9.99
Ultra-hip soul from the 70s – a brilliant collection of underground tunes that represents some of the best of the decade's indie scene! The title says "modern", but the groove here is also pretty darn deep – as many of the tracks on the set have nice touches of southern soul, despite the smoother 70s production overall. Vocals are extremely heartfelt, and most tracks are in a mellow or midtempo pace – making for a really wonderful batch of tunes that moves away from the more uptempo and clubby sounds you might hear on other modern soul compilations. The set's a very unique take on the music, with a total of 22 tracks in all – most of them probably pretty new to your ears! Titles include "Ain't No Telling" by The Houston Outlaws, "Chase Those Clouds Away" by Sam Nesbit, "Fair Warning" by Ted Taylor, "I'm Me Just Me" by Gil Billingsley, "Come Through Me" by Garland Green, "I'm A Lonely Man" by Al Christian, "Bringin Me Back Home" by Lou Pride, "I Call It Love" by The Pretenders, "Second Hand Love" by Lynn Varnado, "Love Me Baby" by Tender Loving Care, and "What Can I Do, I'm In Love With You" by Jean Shy.  © 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
