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.

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.
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.
