A massive batch of work from The Softones – a group who cut some great indie singles back in the 70s – often with a sweet harmony sound that rivaled that of their Avco labelmates The Stylistics! Like that group, The Softones had a great way of hitting a fragile ballad – plenty of street corner echoes, but a smoother sound for the 70s too – beautifully brought up to date with some top-shelf production, but in ways that never get in the way of their wonderful vocals. The collection features a host of rare singles by the group – packaged with full details on the original releases, which were arranged by key 70s talents like Patrick Adams, Sammy Lowe, Van McCoy, Horace Ott, and others. The set features a whopping 17 tracks in all – with titles that include "Any Street", "Can't Help Falling In Love", "I'm Gonna Make The Score", "I Played The Fool", "Hey There Lonely Girl", "That Old Black Magic", "Extra Ordinary People", "My Dream", "I'm Gonna Prove It", "Sweet Dreamer", "I'm Gonna Make The Score", and "Laundromat". © 1996-2021, 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.
