Now Then & Forever

CD (Item 767053) Sony, 2013 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A mindblowingly good album from Earth Wind & Fire – one of the best we've heard from them in years, and a set that really lives up to all the faith we've had in the group over the years! The sound is right on the money – from performance to production – with a vibe that really links the record to their best work at the end of the 70s, but with a freshness that shows that the group's vision and spirit are still moving forward in the 21st Century! We honestly weren't expecting anything this great – and we're pleased as punch at the way the set sparkles wonderfully with each new track – served up with vocals mostly by Phillip Bailey, in the core trio with Ralph Johnson and Verdine White – all working here with plenty of help from a larger ensemble of players who really get the classic sound just right. The whole thing's overflowing with positive energy – and titles include "Love Is Law", "Belo Horizonte", "Splashes", "The Rush", "Night Of My Life", "My Promise", "Guiding Lights", and "Sign On".  © 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.
