Soul Serenade – The Best Of Willie Mitchell

CD (Item 728606) Hi Records/Right Stuff, Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Used
$5.99 ...

CD

Although he's probably best remembered these days as the genius producer behind most of the great Memphis soul records on the Hi Records label, Willie Mitchell was also quite a big soul star in his day. He played lead trumpet on a huge amount of instrumental singles and LPs issued under his own name – records that came out on Hi in the years before and during his classic work with Al Green and Ann Peebles. This "best of" set features 20 of Willie's best moments – including some big singles, and some other more obscure numbers from LPs. Titles include "20 75", "The Crawl", "Percolatin", "Strawberry Soul", "My Babe", "Young People", "Poppin", "Up Hard", "Bum Daddy", and "Bad Eye".  © 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.

Hard to go wrong with Al Green at this point – 1973, when the mighty one was at the height of his secular soul powers – and when the sweetly compressed production style of Willie Mitchell just couldn't miss! There's a homey, earthy feel to the record that's really great – a sound ... CD
