Try Me!

CD (Item 780457) Polydor, 1959 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

Massive early work by James Brown – one of his first few albums for King, and a soulful delight that hits plenty hard all the way through! The sound here is razor-sharp – still very much in the R&B mode that Brown began in the 50s, but already showing this sense of edge and tightness that would really set James apart from the pack – an approach that works equally well on the ballads and groovers! The set, of course, includes the massive early hit "Try Me" – plus "Strange Things Happen", "Fine Old Foxy Self", "Gonna Try", "There Must Be A Reason", and "I Won't Plead No More". Loads of great early raw R&B tracks by James – with a very heavy soul sound!  © 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.

A fantastic bit of hard jamming funk from Mandrill – rougher than later work, with a mix of soul, jazz, and Latin influences, all coming together in a mode that reminds us of early 70s LA groups like War or El Chicano. The best element of the album's the mix of keyboards, bass-driven rhythms ... CD

Sweet electro soul from Second Image – a group who manage to mix in plenty of beats and keyboards to their groove, yet never let the music get too cold! There's a playful sort of feeling to most numbers here – a style that's a bit different than US electro of the time, with less of a ... CD
