Different Scene/Color As A Way Of Life

CD (Item 613222) Cotillion/Collectables, Mid 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


2 mid 70s albums by Lou – recorded for the Cotillion label – and in a sweet mellow style that's a whole different sound than his Blue Note work! Lou's playing over some larger electric backings, mostly arranged by Mike Goldberg, with some nice electric piano touches that float underneath Lou's soulful alto solos on the tracks. The overall groove is more in an instrumental soul mode – and the CD includes a nice cover of Minnie Riperton's "Lovin' You", and the Isley's "For The Love Of You" – plus the cuts "Keep Your Woman", "Walkin Sally", "Maker's Dream", "Too Much To Explain", "Passion Fruit", "Comin Thru The Backdoor", and "Here's Lovin At You".  © 1996-2017, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
