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.  © 1996-2023, 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.

Magnificent stuff – an a treasure trove of lost harmony soul! This is the kind of compilation that really gets us going – 24 super-mellow soul tracks from the late 60s and early 70s, all of them done by male harmony groups with a stellar vocal approach. Some of the groups are ones you' ... CD

Sue Singles
Kent (UK), 1960s. Used
A full run of genius from the great Baby Washington – a singer who's mostly known for her initial sweet soul work, but who can also sing with a hell of a lot of female power, too! If you only know the early Sue Records single "That's How Heartaches Are Made", you'll really be ... CD
Kent (UK), 1969/1971. Used
Some of the greatest female soul from the southern scene at the start of the 70s – two monumental albums from singer Doris Duke, both produced by Swamp Dogg and packaged here with some rare bonus cuts too! Doris' work has always been some of our favorite from the deep soul scene – ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. Used
Excellent rare soul from Atlantic – and a very different side of the label's output! The focus here is on tracks that are a bit more sophisticated than the hits – not really mellow, as most of the numbers are very nice groovers, but just with a twist that sets them apart from some of ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. Used
Excellent rare soul from King Records – and almost none of it reissued since it was originally on 45s! King is more famously known as the home of James Brown during the 60s – but this set shows what a wealth of great work was going on at the label at the same time, and even though we've ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used
Stax Records was so great at the start, the label kept on recording and releasing amazing music far past its familiar hits – so much so that the b-sides of their singles were often every bit as great as the better-played sides! This set looks at that huge legacy of music, and brings together ... CD
Kent/Traffic, Early 70s. Used
Rudy Ray Moore's second album, and almost hipper than the first – thanks to some key musical backings from The Fillmore St Soul Rebellion! The vibe here is as rough and raw as you'd expect – a no-holds-barred version of party records, with Rudy using plenty of language hardly heard ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used
Maybe not the sound of success – at least in terms of cash for the artists – but a stellar collection of 60s soul from the vaults of Wand and Scepter Records! Both imprints had some hits at the time, but also cut a huge amount of lesser-circulated tracks that are complete gems – ... CD
Hi Records/Solid (Japan), 1972. Used
Warm wonderfulness from the great Al Green – a record that may have a pale-looking cover, but a set that's one of Green's most deeply soulful albums ever! There's a grace and a glow to the set right from the very first note – that really unique presentation and performance that makes ... CD
Hi Records/Solid (Japan), 1972. Used
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the ... CD
