Out Of Stock

CD

✈

2 classic mid 70s albums by The Whispers – back to back, and with bonus tracks! One For The Money marks an important shift for the group – one in which they're working in an uptempo Philly soul mode, with arrangements by the great Norman Harris! Norman put together the incredible "Living Together (In Sin)", and plays some excellent guitar on the track – and he takes the sweet west coast harmonies of The Whispers into the realm of Philly Groove greatness. Other nice tracks include "You're Only As Good As You Think You Are", "Sounds Like A Love Song", and "In My Heart". Open Up Your Love has The Whispers moving back to work on the west coast – after cutting a few albums in Philly – picking up Gene Page to handle arrangements, still very much in the strident groove mode of their Philly work. However, there's also some great ballad cuts on the album – tracks that hearken back to some of their earlier recordings, with heavenly harmonies cast amidst the smooth group sound that they helped to pioneer. Titles include "Open Up Your Love", "You Are Number One", "I'm Gonna Make You My Wife", and "Chocolate Girl". CD has 17 tracks in all – with the bonus cuts "In Love Forever" and the 12" mix of "One For The Money".  © 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.

Cameo

Word Up!
Universal, 1986. Used
A mid-80s classic from Cameo – one that showed the world that the group was still very much in the funky music game, even if their lineup had been reduced to a trio! Larry Blackmon's still at the head of the group – singing, drumming, and playing bass throughout – with plenty of ... CD

Jennifer Holliday

I'm On Your Side
Arista, 1991. Used
Jennifer Holliday's strong '91 set – with material that's par for the course for Arista soul efforts of the late 80s and early 90s – but Holliday outshines it with her powerful, emotional and wonderful voice! Definitely an underappreciated set, particularly for fans of powerfully ... CD

One of the best albums the Ohio Players cut during the years at Mercury! Most folks go for their big hit "Love Rollercoaster", but we're always partial to the smooth, mellow funky track "Sweet Sticky Thing", served up here in the cool long version, which has a groove that ... CD

P&P, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
Incredible grooves from the third corner of the P&P triangle – the legendary Greg Carmichael, a man who was as important to the sound of the New York underground as Patrick Adams and Peter Brown! Carmichael worked heavily with Adams back in the day, and he's got a way with a groove that's ... CD
