Beautiful

CD (Item 689492) Universal, 2013 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

Wonderful sounds from Teena Marie – the last album she ever recorded before she left us way too soon – and a beautiful set that has us missing her more than ever! The vibe is even tighter than the Congo Square album, but there's also a classic sensibility and depth that takes us back to the earliest Lady T years at Motown – that special quality that always made Teena very different than almost all her contemporaries – a really unique artist with a great ear for balancing the best aspects of her sound! Teena produced and arranged, and the sound is wonderful – warmly seductive, but also funky too – a punch that comes up from the bottom on most numbers, and carries through with really positive energy. There's nothing half baked about the record at all – and the set also features a few contributions from Teena's daughter, Alia Rose. Titles include "Rare Breed", "Definition Of Down", "Maria Bonita", "Beautiful", "The Long Play", "Give Me Your Love", "Wild Horses", "Luv Letter", and "Sweet Tooth".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Put Me In Your Mix
A&M/Universal (Japan), 1991. Used
A nice little record that some folks slept on over the years – a bit of a comeback album for Barry White – an overlooked early 90s session that updates his sound a bit, yet which still continues the charm of his classic years! There's a bit of a new jack groove going on in a few of the ... CD

Booker T & Priscilla Jones

Chronicles (Japanese paper sleeve edition)
A&M/Universal (Japan), 1973. Used
Booker T's definitely into a great new groove here – one that really extrapolates his Memphis roots through the haze of early 70s California – coming up with some wonderful sounds along the way! There's a definite A&M vibe to the record – that mix of rootsy modes and hipster ... CD

Memphis goes to California – with surprising results! The album's one of a few that Booker T cut after splitting with the MGs – of legendary Stax Records fame – and it's completely different than his earlier sides, and not in a bad way! Book recorded the set in California with ... CD

Macho Man
Casablanca/Universal (Japan), 1978. Used
The macho aesthetic gets redefined for a whole new audience – as The Village People play with a pastiche of masculine images from daily life, all recast for the post-Stonewall generation! The group bring camp back firmly for the 70s – and are still one of the best-remembered mainstream ... CD

A really fantastic little set – way way better than we ever expected, thanks in large part to the strength of the remixers used in the project! We'll be honest in saying that it would be easy to ruin Curtis Mayfield's work by remixing it too much – because the man's genius is so well-es ... CD

Curtis (Charly pressing)
Curtom/Charly, Early 70s/1996. Used
A mindblowing solo set from Curtis Mayfield – a record that not only foregrounds all the subtle politics he'd been forging in the Impressions during the 60s – but one that also really has Mayfield exploding as a force to be reckoned with in the studio! The album's a personal ... CD
