Sublime work from Noel Pointer – a set that sparkles equally from both his soul and jazz talents! The record's a perfect example of the way that key artists like Pointer were blending R&B and fusion at the end of the 70s – really perfecting earlier experiments of cats like Norman Connors or Johnny Hammond, and coming up with a style that not only brings a lot of depth to mainstream soul, but which also helps save fusion from some of its more overindulgent tendencies! The core sounds are mixed with some nice strings on some of the album's best tracks – giving the set a great sense of class and sophistication that really helps it transcend the usual – while other numbers stick tight to the kind of Capitol Rare grooving that Pointer was always great at – sweet mellow groovers and steppers that have made the record a classic for years. Titles include "Tween The Lines", "Love Is", "Calling", "Take A Look", "As Long As I Know", "Morning Song", "Higher Than Heaven", and "Precious Pearl".  © 1996-2019, 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.
